Remember those 90′s gourmands of phenomenal and immediate success? Lembo believes the secret of this fragrance family is its capacity to evoke memories of innocent, profound comfort. This perfume recalls more than the success of its ancestors; it replicates the distinct pleasure, of a unique yet simplistic sweet that is unreplicable outside of it’s birth region. A salty chew of amber graces the top of Gourmand, and this savory balance is echoed by the particularly firm, green woody presence that inhabits the base of this scent. Having encased Gourmand in this savory context, the sweets that flow therein are neither overpowering nor indistinguishable; each dulcet note is showcased as a specific, individual texture. Benzoin is fruity and bright, a vanillic presence that is clearly plant-derived. Vanilla is a rich, lactic substance who’s satin grip acts as an emulsifier. Caramel’s bittersweet, citric burn is comfortingly tart. Coconut is a soft whisper of sun that illuminates the pantry stalwarts. A solid musk is the essential building block of butter, that magnifies the diversity of sweet herein. Gourmand is both a solace and a warm sensual embrace. On skin it’s soft, exciting and charming.
