Details and Care
E Gourmande Oriental was created by British perfume house Clive Christian and launched in 2017. Crafted by master perfumer Angela Stavrevska, it's an opulent men's scent with sweet, spicy, earthy and herbal accords. It's also part of the Private Collection, which tells the brand's story as a series of exquisitely crafted perfumes. This lineup includes over a dozen men's and women's fragrances that debuted between 2010 and 2017.
While E Gourmande Oriental is classified as an amber vanilla fragrance, it has a distinctive aromatic profile crafted by an inventive scent note combination. Stavrevska uses ylang-ylang to add the sweet and creamy essence normally present in many amber perfumes. This exotic floral also has woody and powdery undertones, which round out this EDP and give it a classic oriental feel.
