Caramelized Milk
It's beautiful, very tasty and quite sweet. Indeed, a dream and a must have/try for all those with a sweet tooth.
Here you can find the full range of caramelized milk confectionery - the smells of brown sugar, condensed milk, butterscotch, toffee, and caramel itself. With a slight hint of hookah smoke. I like that it creates a festive, kind of "fairy tale" mood. And, what needs to be said is, that it lasts forever and does not smell cheap - the recipe is written very well and is higly recommended for use.

High-performing, sweet gourmand
First sampling from Jousset Parfums, Gourmand Bakhoor, a fittingly sweet fragrance with a good reputation that I was keen to get my nose on. And sweet, it is: upon first spray, it’s really a powerful sugary, doughy, milky mix that smells of baked goods, with vague hints of caramel, vanilla, and chocolate, and resinous undertones (the bakhoor itself). I do not detect the listed leather note, but still, the effect is one of a nearly full gourmand, even there are non-food notes as well. There’s some nuance to Gourmand Bakhoor but it feels intense, almost blunt, an olfactory overload of sweets that, while a bit varied, is still almost overwhelming.

It’s quite loud in the opening and remains fairly dense on skin thereafter, so there’s no knocking its performance, but the scent does not dazzle me overall, especially since there are vibrant/realistic gourmand offerings that are superior from Hilde Soliani and Kyse Perfumes, and at better prices, no less.

Still, Gourmand Bakhoor and other Jousset Parfums offerings are sold by Sealed Essence and Luckyscent in the US, and Gourmand Bakhoor itself is among the more affordable offerings from Jousset Parfums, with retail pricing at $95 for 50ml in extrait concentration, very reasonable in today’s market, in my opinion.

So while it does not strike me as a superb gourmand offering, it’s certainly worth trying, especially for gourmand fans, but even those who might generally shy away from gourmands might like it quite a bit.

If I would want to smell like jar of hazelnut pasta with someone smoking in the room, I'd visit my dead father. Highly unbalanced and loud
