Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

What are Gourmand Fragrances?

Fragrances can be classified by certain olfactive families, or themes, or accords. In this guide I will briefly discuss the various themes.


Gourmand notes are another newly added member to the fragrance family. These notes are characterized as edible, dessert like, citrus, sweet, vegetable, nutty, sorbet, candy-like, tea, fruits, almonds, cupcake, whiskey, or coffee scents. Many scents used in gourmand perfumes are vanilla, chocolate, creme brulee, milk, cotton candy, honey, maple syrup, pumpkin, hot milk, brown sugar, date, marzipan, caramel, hazelnut, cream, butter, coffee, nougat, praline, custard, cognac, licorice, cinnamon, gingerbread, toffee, marshmallow, marmalade and others.

Related olfactory groups include: citrus gourmand, fruity gourmand, floral fruity gourmand
