My heart warms to you!
My first souk sweetie!
Outright gourmands are not my specialty and have been largely avoided. Fruit overkill and sugar shock were to be feared.
However, this delicious vanilla dream has now done it to me. Soft, gentle and delicately sweet, rounded off by subtle wildflower and musk notes, comfortingly warm, it will envelop me comfortingly on these cold grey winter days and evenings. An absolute winter scent.
A cloud of "All is well!" and the evil world can stay outside, wonderful!

My Reference Gourmand
Gourmands have always been an extremely difficult topic for me.......actually, no one could ever really inspire me.....too squeaky, loud, inelegant and one-dimensional they often seem to me.......

Nevertheless, I recently decided that there should be at least ONE reference gourmand in my collection......For someone who doesn't like gourmands, finding one is a difficult task.....after all, I don't have the slightest bit of knowledge or experience in this area.......

With the active support of our wonderful community and to the exclusion of all NO GO fragrances, I have now actually succeeded in finding an indescribably fantastic gourmand.....one who will not only be a reference, but one I will actually wear.......

As a description of this really extraordinary beautiful scent I would like to simply mention here my list of keywords, which I have successively made during several days of testing...

Strong / powerful
Caramel (viscous)
Vanilla egg liqueur (first spray)
Dream vanilla
Vanilla crescent
Cake dough
very sweet / but natural sweetness
Creamy
Satt
Full-bodied
Soft buttery
Very feminine
Flattering
Enveloping
Delicate light coconut note / no penetrance
Noble Gourmand
Cream Brulée
Unique wildflower note
produces a slightly herbaceous twist in the heart note ...
Tobacco blossom makes the scent appear mature and elegant despite its sweetness ...
Perceptible in the whole spectrum even after many hours
Infinitely durable
It's him

I would hardly have thought it possible, but this gourmand has indeed conquered my heart :-)...

Best Caramel I've Ever Tried!
Madera is one of the best caramel fragrances I've ever tried. Heavy use of caramel, as in this case, tends to get cloying and almost dirty on most skins. But NOT in this yummy juice! All I get is caramel with hints of well-blended flowers, fruits, and musk. But the main player is definitely caramel. The only deterrent is the price for me. I cannot justify $135 a bottle just for a single note (albeit an exquisite class of caramel) perfume. If you're a gourmand lover who has the budget for it, buy it. You will NOT be disappointed. :o)

Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies, Atop Pistachio Icecream Served by a Kindly Lady Wearing Baby Powder
This is achingly caramelic, with notes of burnt sugar, two types of natural smelling vanilla bean pod and coconut whipped cream. This is pleasant enough and low-to moderate sillage enough to wear to bed in winter time for a snuggly comfortable feeling. It reminds me of Snickerdoodle cookies, cream and all things innocent and gentle. The middle of this fragrance is a soft powder puff similar to Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum and I suspect Serge Luten's Rahat Loukhoum (though I haven't gotten to sample the latter yet). As this dries down it becomes less sweet and more floral/ powdery and a gentle vanilla musk dominates. I don't find it boozy, or golden brown and crusty buttery enough for a truly mouth watering gourmand, such as Serge Luten's Jeux De Peau. It begins to remind me of Laura Mercier's Crème de Pistache lotion, which has a creamy nutty spumoni element. The one thing that bugs me about this fragrance is the name... It is apropos of nothing. Madera is the Spanish word for lumber (wood)- (this has nothing on L'artisan's Bois de Farine). So perhaps the disambiguated meaning from the Portuguese madeira, or maybe from ?ód? in Poland or one would associate it with the Madeira the semi-sweet fortified Portuguese wine made in the Madeira Islands. For me, this Madera has no connection with any of these likely connections, it definitely doesn't cut it as a reference to Madeira wine anymore than Prada Candy does- this is the non-alcoholic version of a nightcap. Given the hefty price-tag, weak sillage and unremarkable bottle design...well, if you love sweet caramel and powder scents, definitely sample, but I remain unimpressed.
