What Makes the Gourmand Fragrances So Alluring?

Gourmand fragrances - the profound connection between scent and taste

According to fragrance expert Arnaud Guggenbuhl, head of global marketing insight and image fine fragrance at Givaudan, gourmand fragrances tap info a unique and profound connection. They evoke a sense of positive nostalgia, transporting us back to a time of delectable indulgence.Much like comfort food, these fragrance notes provide solace and familiarity. In today's world, where anxiety is on the rise, gourmand fragrances serve as a soothing balm.

In our DNA, sugar is encoded as a primal source of pleasure, linking sweetness with feelings of happiness and safety. This innate connection is at the heart of the gourmand fragrance phenomenon, offering a delightful reprieve from the complexities of modern life. The origins of gourmand fragrances can be traced back to 1992 and perfumer Olivier Cresp’s introduction of Thierry Mugler Angel. This was the first gourmand fragrance to appear on a fashion runway. With sweet notes of praline, raspberry, vanilla and patchouli, Angel Eau de Parfum revolutionized the gourmand fragrances.
