I disliked MFK Baccarat 540 Rouge it could be considered cotton candy notes but I did not like it returned it back to boutique for Kilian Back To Black. I am buying Serge “...Vanille” on Friday and maybe the orange 1. I like hearing about the fancy fragrances but Jeremy F. talks about Britney Spears Fantasy lol 😂 you just have expensive tastes! Have you smelled Victor & Rolf Bonbon? These are all really a lot of money but I own at least 1 off the list lol I had a sample of SL & the vanille I can smell on back of my hand 5 hours later (yes washed). I love gourmands. You never talk about Jo Malone? I love Tonka Myrrh cologne intense. I dislike vetiver for myself. You look amazing in this video Demi! I love your eye makeup.
Un bois vanille smells so good at first but it's sooooo strong and a bit Too gourmand for me! It gets too sickening :/
I loved orchidee vanille, I just tried it today ! So disappointing that it doesn't last that long :(
Hi there! I'm new to your channel. Is this list specifically for female or male or unisex perfumes? I'm a guy who is sucker for sweet smell such as vanilla/praline/cupcake/tonka bean etc thus why I really love gourmand perfumes. I guess I'm more gravitated towards such smell because it reminds me of the warmth and coziness of my home and my mother's cooking and it is more suitable for my playful, humorous, and homey personality.
I want to know what your take is on *Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo* perfume for men? I heard that it smells a bit like tiramisu cake. Hmm I love tiramisu LOL. Have you tried it yet? Do you like it or not?
And eventhough I know you don't like Angel, but what do you think about *Angel Men Pure Tonka* from Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume line? I heard this one is the sweetest (a.k.a the most cookie-like smell) among all Angel line. How do you compare it to the rest of the Angel Men perfumes?
I don't think that Angel Muse (2016) is a flanker of the original Angel (1992)...It is a perfum on her own...I hate Angel, but I love Angel Muse...Another example Lancome La Nuit Tresor (2015) is not a flanker of the original Tresor (1990)
I watched a few of your videos and found them very inspiring. I just did not know, if we have the same taste im perfumes. You commented a lot of perfumes as sweet and I thought to myself "oh no, she is one of those Thierry-Mugler-Angel-Lovers" ... But now I heard you saying, that you do not like it and I love you for that!! There are so many women out there who seem to bath in "Angel" and you can smell it even if they are 15 meters away. I totally agree with you about Dior's "Addict". Next I will be trying to test "Oud bouquet", although it seem hard to get in Austria.
I disagree about the 2 camps when it comes to Oud Bouquet. To me it’s a beautiful, not at all medicinal, oud with a jammy rose. It’s beautiful and it is one of my favorites. However, neither oud nor rose is edible and no amount of sweetness could make this a gourmand. It belongs to the group of oriental fragrances.
I don’t think Satin Mood and Noir de Noir are gourmands. Satin mood is sweet, yes, but it has nothing in it that reads as edible. I believe that’s the prerequisite for a gourmand scent. I also understand that scents are very subjective and what your skin pulls out of a scent might be quite different from me. Noir de Noir is def not a gourmand by any stretch of the imagination. Is it beautiful? Sure. I don’t get sweet from it. To me it’s a very heavy, oily rose at a cemetery- probably the Patchouli lending that dark soil note in there .
On a lighter note, I love the way you talk about fragrances. I have only been into niche about 2 yrs so still lots to smell :))
I have ordered $100 worth of samples from LuckyScent, half of those based on your reviews 👍🏻😬
I haven’t tested the Lancome Oud Bouquet.I recently purchased Maison Oud Ambroisie. The department store I went to did not have the Oud Bouquet. Do you own or have tested any others in this collection? If you have tested others is Oud Bouquet your favorite from this line?
العجوز المصري أقسم بالله العظيم انك شفار و الله شاهد علي انت وحمادة لانك ارسلتم اي اللصوص والمجرمين و حسدتموني و لم تساعدوني واستغربت لمادا يجب ان اضل اشتغل على الرغم مني و استعبدوني و ارعبوني مؤامراتكم و مافياتكم وانا ضعيفة
Demi can you please compare mancera roses vanille to montale intense cafe ? Since i have the roses vanille one but i wanted to know if the coffee note makes a great difference in intense cafe or they are smelling nearly the same , although i want to know if the coffee note here is similar to it in black opium for example or it smells like straight coffee beans ?
Personally i like Fève way more than others on the list. Strong with presence and yet very cozy to wear and other peoples around the wearer. And the most special things about Fève is the sillage. Yes it’s powdery, but airy and never becoming a smoke powdery bomb. And around that powdery sillage, there’s a string of sweetness from pralines and vanilla lingering around. What an incredibly beautiful blend...
I really love your perfume vid <3 , i bought Guerlain Tonka Imperiale as a personal treat last Christmas, I will definitely check other references. You can also check Louis Vuitton fragrances, "Contre moi" and "Matière noire" are very stunning. Gourmand (with coffee, vanilla, tonka for "Contre moi") and fruity (for "Matière noire"). Both are very elegant/comforting/addictive and they last very long time in the skin...
Not to be pedantic, but it's an FYI Mugler is pronounced "Mooglere" Only know this as I've had a meeting with some of the Mugler team. Hope this helps! I'll back you with Intense Café smelling great, wearing this today.. pure sweet coffee on me!
I think it would be a good idea to write them on the screen. Some of these I couldn't understand the names of because of not speaking real clearly and not being familiar with some of the names. Thank you!
hello demi i m soo glad i find your chanel
you should try :
givenchy live irresistible "eau de parfum" and "eau delicieuse"
scandal by JP gaultier
la nuit tresor a la folie
and euphoria by calvin klein (not gourmand)
love from france
Thank you so much!
I see your profile pic is Orto Parisi "Terroni" !
I've got a bottle of that fragrance on the way to me right now -
I'm definitely going to pick up some sample from Xerjoff so I'll make sure I pick up "More Than Words" !
Thanks for the heads up -
MUCH LOVE X
I own bottles of a couple of these (Amouage Sunshine for Women and Angel Muse). They are both great, but I would rank Sunshine higher on my list than Muse.
I am nursing a sample of MFK Oud Satin Mood and, for sure, when that sample runs out I will get a full bottle. I think that is in my top 5 right now. Some say MFK's best is Baccarat Rouge 540 but I have worn both and Oud Satin Mood is better to me. The more I smell it the more I enjoy it.
From your list, the one I am most interested in smelling is Montale Intense Cafe. I do not have a fragrance with a good coffee note in my collection (and I love that smell). It sounds like this one could fill that gap.
Thanks for sharing your favorite gourmands Demi! :)
Thank you so much!
I couldn't agree more -
In my opinion "Oud Satin Mood" is so much better than "Baccarat" - I'm so glad you think so too!
Oo Montale "Intense Cafe" is delicious! Don't sleep on it! i'm planning to pick it up asap!
MUCH LOVE X
****Video Topic Request**** --> Best fragrances by age groups: 20-year-olds vs 30-year-olds vs 40-year-olds, etc.
I'm new to perfumes and I've ordered samples that were highly recommended that turned out to be either too old or too young for me. (You know it when you smell it.} The issue is many reviewers say this or that perfume is for "young" people or "mature" people, but what does that even mean? I feel like I'm somewhere between those two extremes.
Could you do a video, perhaps one for each age group, recommending perfumes for persons that are those ages? Or an age range for various best perfumes? It could be called something like "Best 10 Perfumes for 30-year-olds" etc. I am in my 30s, so I am in particular curious to know which perfumes would be most appropriate for someone like me in various situations: work, dates, going out, etc.
Perhaps there are even perfumes that transcend age and are good for anyone. I don't know. I'm very open to suggestions. :)
Try out 'La Douceur de Siam' by Dusita. I discovered it recently and fell head over heels in love with it ❤️ Also, I LOVE Back to Black from By Kilian. It's the only fragrance I wear for my night outs 🙌
I purchased Angel Muse and OMG I must say is the most horrible fragrance I own, hands down one of the worst fragrance ever made it put me off for all Mugler fragrance. Im glad the gift set was on sale for £32 only or else I would have cried.
Great picks! I love and have many of these. I'd suggest smelling un bois vanille and pink sugar against each other. I've always thought of un bois vanille as a slightly more grown up and luxe version of pink sugar (though I wouldn't call them dupes.)
Everything sounds so yummy! I've been looking for a gourmand so this was right up my alley and almost all the scents here were on my wishlist to try. Really enjoy your fragrance videos. You just got a new subscriber. :D P.s. Mugler is pronounced Moo-glair. :)
I had a sample of Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille and I also very liked this fragrance, however to me the longevity and the sillage was quite weak. But you are right, it is a very lovely fragrance. I have not tried the others from your list. :)
OMG girl! All the fragrances that you mentioned are on my wish list 😂👍 mfk oud satin mood & kilian btb are hands down 🙌🏿 Btw, i know you’re from Australia and there’s an australian niche house that gets so much love from the fragrance community😍 Fort & manle and i really wanna get a sample of fort & manle charlatan, fort & manle maduro.... hope you can get your hands on this house and tell us your thoughts 😘😘😘 greetings from the Philippines 🇵🇭 🤗🤗🤗
You have awesome taste!
I've sampled all the fragrances from Fort and Manle and WOW -
I pretty much loved every single fragrance I sampled but I definitely want to pick up a bottle of "Charlatan" & "Impressions de Giverny" !
MUCH LOVE X
I JUST RECEIVED OUD BOUQUET FOR MYSELF...I BELIEVE IT HAS A WONDERFUL PRALINE NOTE. CURIOUS WHEN YOU SAY WINTER ,WHAT TEMPERATURE DO YOU HAVE IN AUSSIE LAND....IT WOULD BE GOOD TO KNOW FOR COMPARISON SAKE.
haha....i live in Medellin Colombia The city of eternal spring...THE COLDEST is 15 c at night 29 in day all year round. i am getting to point temperatures and fragrances are not consequential as the heavier ones such as Jovoy and Lubin interest me.
michael oles Oo "Oud Bouquet" is something special! 😍👌🏻
I'd say a normal winter day in AUS is around 15C -
Im a sook when it comes to the cold 😂 my Aussie ass can't handle anything under 20C 👀
MUCH LOVE ❤️
Great video! I definitely want to try a lot of these! Vanilla is one of my favorites.
Can I get your recommendation on the best affordable vanilla fragrance? I want to get one for my Mom because she is OBSESSED with vanilla.
Next video: best year round/signature scent fragrances!!!
Omg I was literally searching for a video of a top 10 gourmand perfumes (preferably niche), and not only did I get one but it’s from my favourite perfume girl ❤️
Thx so much for this video and now have new perfumes on my shopping list😍
U rock Demi 🤘🏻👌🏻👍🏻🙌🏻
So enjoyed this! I have so many to try now! I'm curious about something. Australia is in winter now right? Do your stores in the mall display winter items? For instance, Is your Bath & Body works showing their winter line? I just think its fascinating that I'm in mid Summer & you're in Winter.
This list contains a competition – further details at the bottom of the list. Everybody knows Ian Fleming’s master spy, James Bond. The suave and handsome secret agent with a license to kill, Bond became the new face of cinematic spies after the release of Dr. No, the very first Bond film, in 1962. Before Bond, spies were often portrayed as paunchy, unattractive, cowardly, even elderly—much of which may have been more accurate, in reality—but the Cold War-ridden 1960s was more interested in fantasy and escape than cinema verite. And so, instead of the seedy and miserable nobody of Joseph Conrad’s “Secret Agent,” spies became good-looking ladies’ men with charm and toughness to spare.
Ian Fleming probably didn’t realize what a seed he was planting when he created James Bond. Almost immediately after his big screen debut, Bond had a whole generation of imitators following him on TV and film. There were suddenly spies everywhere—some surreal and campy, others sophisticated and witty, some hip and groovy. There was even a wedding of the spy with the western. By 1970, the anti-establishment sentiments of the hippies had fully taken hold in pop culture, and the spy craze was suddenly no more. Only James Bond was left, last as he was first, to carry on.
PLEASE NOTE: This list excludes Bond—this is, of course, about the OTHER spy series of the day. Bond, naturally, is the biggest and best known. The point is, he wasn’t alone.
