Bothering or intimidating weaker people bible and carbon dating
I think it suits a guy in his thirties but respect to a younger crowd if they give this a go.Comparable to dior homme in terms of complexity and the way it's blended but not in how it smells.I like it better than the Extreme/EDP version personally.I think it has more depth and nuances than the other version. It's classy, which is no surprise as it is Guerlain. It's perfect for any occasion, whether it's at the office or going out.I have worn this like 2 times since I purchased it in the early summer. Imagine eating a chocolate cake that had no sugar in it. All said, my final tally for Guerlain’s L’Instant is 4.0 stars out of 5 stars. Not for everyday use imo, but should be on your arsenal for special occasion Starts with a Citrus blast but not overpowering, after a minute or two it develops into a cacao nutty fragrance, that is very gourmandise.
In my humble opinion the best gourmand i have had the honor to test. I found it a bit too old fashioned and dusty smelling but after a few wearing's I've done a complete 180° .is now for me borderline masterpiece ..i get lemon , tea and chocolate expertly blended .a crazy mix that takes a bit of initial getting used too, I think it confused me at first (those quirky french again) as I've never worn a fragrance like this but I don't think I'd like to be without it now for the rest of my days.
The freshness of citrus is complemented by originality of anise and jasmine in the top notes. If anyone has a cap to a bottle that is empty, almost empty, or you just don't care for your caps, please PM me. Visually stunning in its commanding flacon, and with an incongruous series of invisibly blended notes to leave one on a delicious cloud at the first spray and already craving more before the first breathe has ended. It has to be consumed as if air, lightly taken, but with absolute necessity, and in constant supply. I truly wanted to like it, but that is literally what I smell. Recently I bought the edp version but for me,this is a little better. Bentley, Patek Philippe, L'Instant de Guerlain—all convey a similar sort of refinement and status. This is the scent that put into motion D&G "The One" ,"Dior Homme" "Silver Shadow" Davidoff.
The heart is warm and masculine: patchouli, cedar, Indian sandalwood, Lapsang tea, cocoa beans and lavender. I have (2) 4.2Oz testers that I'd like to have caps for. This is a sensual,auto-erotic soufflé for the soul. He is usurped however, for the most failed of us now have at least one of his charms. This is based on an EDT sample vial, maybe mine was just rotten. Men whose lifestyle provides such occasions for elegance will appreciate L'Instant as a fragrance that deftly manages to balance aloofness with sex appeal. I have these and other flankers , but none come close to this one the balance of the ingredients in this bottle is perfect in every way.
I believe this scent, this bottle is worth every nickel. I wanted to purchase this because I see they have a newer....diferent bottle out now... But, I will pay extra for the older version.sure !!! I don't get as much cacao in the EDT compared to the Extreme...having both is ok to me. Some fragrances deserve to be part of your best moments and this one is one of them. The cacao and lemon combination is really interesting and quite pleasant. Cooler seasons for sure, but I think you can pull this off in the spring and possibly summer. That being said, my first impression: I was reminded of Playdoh; my wife's first impression: "smokey leaves" In retrospect I smell the smokiness she described.
I hadn't used this in a while, and forgot what a great classic this is. I wish sillage were a little greater, but other than that, one of my faves in my collection. Disappointed in myself that is for not buying a bigger bottle. This fragrance is a like, the extreme version is a love.
My wife who rarely compliments what I wear, immediately perked up and told me how good I smelled. I'm getting a sweet and creamy, somewhat citrusy, patchouli scent. It's unique enough and nice enough to be a dressed up signature scent for someone. To me, this is almost too decadent for casual dress. UPDATE: Well, now after half an hour, I know why I couldn't smell a damn thing. My parents could smell it, and said it smells like a signature scent for me... Rich, Elegant, Masculine without an over powering presence.
