    Default Gourmand fragrances that work excellent all year even summer?

    I’ve been really enjoying L’Instant De Guerlain Pour Homme EDP and after almost 30 wears I can see this working even in the heat just smells very nice. If one was to add more gourmand fragrances for all year wear what ones would be excellent picks and also have quality ingredients?

    Does Guerlain have any other gourmands outside the signature standard line?

    Aomassai by Pierre Guillaume works well all year round IMO

    Guerlain is a great house for all year gourmands indeed, most of the l'Homme Ideal range, including but not limited to Parfum and Sport, even disparate (slightly) gourmand notes in the Heritage, the Les Desserts d'Orient scents released so far, Guerlain Homme Intense EDP and Habit Rouge series being highly appropriate as all year, even summer choices.

    Other possible non Guerlain gourmand options that might work even in summer could easily include (again, without being limited to) Eau des Baux, Baldessarini Ambre, the boozy/tobacco aspects of Aramis Havana, Endymion EDC by Penhaligon's, Akkad by Lubin, several if not most notes of Bogart PH and/or Parfum, Jaipur Homme EDT, most of the Boss Bottled range, Dior Homme Intense and/or Parfum, again to name only a few.

    I'd suggest 1 Million Lucky, but I feel like I'm in the minority on here about it.

    I feel like it smells good and is pretty fresh for a gourmand style fragrance. Might not be "artsy" or whatever though.

    I feel that Turkish Leather works in the summer and any other time of year.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    I've worn Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille all year round with varying applications. The warmer months does enhance the performance of the scent which can be nice.

    This is a good suggestion.
