Do you like sweet, warm, creamy fragrances? Then you need to explore gourmand scents, which contain decadent, edible notes inspired by some of our favourite foods. Here are the ones you need to add to your collection so you always smell good enough to eat!
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum
This popular fragrance has been making women smell good for over a decade. Categorised as a floral-fruity gourmand, it has juicy top notes of fresh blackcurrant and pear, but less healthy and oh-so decadent chocolate, hazelnut praline and vanilla at the base.
Prada Candy Eau de Parfum
The name really says it all and describes this perfume to a tee! The single top note is caramel and it also features creamy vanilla as a base note. This, combined with powdery and musky accords, makes this feminine fragrance a must-have if you happen to have a sweet tooth.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum
If you’ve ever wanted to smell like your favourite flavoured latte, this is the perfume to invest in. Launched in 2013, this scent has crisp pear at the top and both coffee and vanilla notes at the base. And, love it or hate it, it also features liquorice notes.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum
Another notable coffee-powered scent, this one has these notes up top, combined with almond and bright bergamot and lemon. At the base, there is a selection of warm and sumptuous treat aromas, including vanilla, chocolate praline and cacao, making for a very edible dry-down.
Mugler Angel Elixir Eau De Parfum
The gourmand fragrance that started it all, this cult classic hit shelves all the way back in 1992. And it has been a best-seller ever since! This iconic fragrance has a range of delicious sweet notes, including candyfloss, honey, caramel, chocolate and vanilla.
Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau De Parfum
This unique scent has an interesting combination of accords – floral, fruity and warm. Some of the notes are also very edible. These include Mexican chocolate (very specific!) and vanilla at the base. At the top, there is expensive black truffle for an earthy hit.
