I don't feel that Velvetine is full on gourmand, but it definitely has edible components, if that makes sense. As a fellow Slumberhouse fan, what do you think of the comparison to Fjerne in that particular aspect? Fjerne is a bit more pronounced gourmand, but there is still something about it that makes you think that you might die if you ate it. Kind of like the feeling I get with Velvetine. I agree with you, it is excellent. Can't wait to try Chandlery, the descriptions on here have me intrigued!
I got into perfume through full on gourmands, so I think my perception may be a bit skewed. Fjerne is another one that I'd just never think of as edible. It has a creamy cereal vibe, but even that bit of it doesn't feel gourmand to me. I do love perfumes that smell both deliciously edible and a bit poisonous, but neither Fjerne or Velvetine are like that for me.
