Styles of ice cream in Paris

I realize that we've covered the subject of ice cream many times with each of us having a favorite. But I'd really like to read about the specific character or style of ice cream offered at each of these places.
I only have so many hours to devote to chasing ice cream and so much capacity after I track them
down.

I can start by saying that I prefer a "chewy" ice cream. I used to find it at Dammon's, in the 5th and in the Carrousel du Louvre but he has closed his retail business. Amorino and Grom both serve a softer style than I like. I confess that I haven't tried Berthillon in more than 15 years after finding my initial purchase terribly disappointing.

I'm particularly interested in descriptions of Constant, Martine Lambert and Mary. Or your favorite.
