Guerlain Feve Gourmande (formerly Gourmand Coquin) is new to the the L'Art et La Matiere Collection in 2023. Previously released as Gourmand Coquin, it became a much-loved fragrance, and then, poof, it was gone. Now it's back, and it is a gorgeous gourmand. Created by Delphine Jelk, it has notes of cocoa, rum, spices, woods, patchouli, and tea. Guerlain Feve Gourmande (formerly Gourmand Coquin) is an eau de parfum, EDP.
From the perfumer, Delphine Jelk - "Normally associated with childhood, cocoa reveals a new maturity. In Fève Gourmande, it is singularly blended with the depth of a smoky tea accord and the luminous elegance of rose."
From the brand - "A symbol of gourmet delight, the cocoa accord reveals chocolate notes that are equally sweet and bitter. Fève Gourmande plays on this contrast, moving from gourmandise to the point of excess. This loss of olfactory reference points creates a delectably surrealist cocoa. Floral and majestic rose shakes up the cocoa accord, heady with rum and spice notes. At the base, the woody elegance of patchouli warmed by the heat of smoky tea adds mystery to the chocolatey notes, revealing a new sensuality. Cocoa is olfactively expressed in the form of an accord, composed by the perfumer. This accord with chocolatey, and delicately bitter notes gives the perfume a sensory, gourmand feel. Between the gourmet pleasure of chocolate, the vertigo of rum notes and the refinement of rose, the cocoa note tips into an alternative reality. 'If it were a painting, it would be a surrealist work by Salvador Dalí.'”
