Do you have a love of gourmand fragrances? If so, why?
Do you prefer gourmands that smell just like food or the more non-edible variety?
Can you name your Top 3 favourite gourmand perfumes?
Are gourmand perfumes just too sweet for your tastes?
I like gourmand fragrances more in theory than in practice. The idea of something sweet and comforting is very appealing but in reality most gourmands are just too cloying or simplistic. My preferred gourmands have a non-edible element to them and some complexity. Parfumerie Generale excells at this, so it’s no surprise that two of my three come from this line. I also love the brandied fruit and sweet spices of the Ambre Narguile by Hermes, but only in small doses during cold weather. So my list of Top 3 gourmand fragrances right now looks like this:
Brulure de Rose by Parfumerie Generale
Ambre Narguile Hermessence by Hermes
Aomassai by Parfumerie Generale
I’d like to expand my knowledge and love of gourmand fragrances, so please share your favourites.
