    Default Eat Me

    Suggest a good Gourmand fragrance under $50

    Or just list some good ones that are out there. I'm trying to find an interest in a nice one, but one that's not expensive.

    I don’t like most at any price and none within your range. That said, Le Speculoos by L’Antichambre smells heavenly. Definitely worth getting your nose on it if you can find it.

    Fils de Dieu has a subtle Thai food feel to it without being too overt so that it becomes unwearable. It's amazingly well done in my opinion.

    Rochas Man is on budget and quite likely one of the better options in terms of multiple gourmand notes

    It’s easy to find Mugler A*Men online for under $50, actually.

    Quite honestly, the gourmand men’s scent that sparked the trend. (Animale Animale for Men came first, but A*Men made the category mainstream.)
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    You never know with certain posters. I thought someone literally was going to ask if they could eat their cologne.

    A*Men Kryptomint smells like mint vanilla cookies with the familiar A*Men dry down. It might be under $50?

    Hahaha I was trying to be creative with the title. Normally Gourmand fragrances feels like you want to eat somebody, that's how good and tasty some of them smell.


    Montale Chocolate Greedy is another good one, but then you also have a very cheapie in AL Rehabs Choco Musk

    I get it. But I don't love the smell of food unless it's the actual food. Same reason I don't like candles that smell like food either.

    In my opinion the best Gourmand at that price range is Pure Tonka. It might be the best Gourmand at double that price range. Coffee, chocolate, syrup, vanilla, Tonka, waffles. Getting harder and harder to find though.

    Can't seem to find this... This was one Ive been searching locally here in South Africa, no luck. Went for Tonka, ended up settling for Pure Havane.

    Lol yeh I understand, which is why I'm looking for cheaper Gourmands, rather than expensive ones and then end up not liking it. But finding cheaper ones these days are getting harder by the day, as most of the expensive ones are Niche

    Yes.....It's so hard to find. I can't even seem to find it on Muglers website. I've been assured that its not discontinued. It's one of those like Fahrenheit parfum and Dior Homme Parfum were it becomes available everywhere for a limited period of time and then just vanishes off the face of the earth.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Im not quite sure if it is a gourmand, but certain sweet aspects convinced me that it could be one.
