Reviews of L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extrême / Eau de Parfum

For me, Extrême will always be a lesser-than when weighed against the more complex, delicate original L'Instant pour Homme (EDT).

Extrême/EDP is a thick, potent cacao-and-licorice gourmand with fairly linear development. The EDT might not be as beastly, but it has very good performance nonetheless, and offers more structural panache than this comparatively more direct creation.

Extrême's best moments arise after a few hours of wear and it begins to thin out, with the licorice candy note transforming into more of a gentle spice blended in with patchouli and vanilla.

Thumbs hovering over neutral as this is a perfectly nice gentle yet long lasting cologne.
The opening is the best. Fresh and masculine without too much citrus, but pretty quickly it settles into a slightly sweet gourmand. Unexciting but pleasant. If this was the only cologne in existence it would not be a disaster but there would be little to inspire the dedicated passion that accompanies this pass time. If you want a more peppery strong and masculine version of this try Amouage Dia Man.

Fragrance: 7/10
Projection: 7.5/10

Lemon chocolate powder. Not a milk chocolate sweet gourmand. More like unsweetened baking cocoa mixed with lemon juice. The patchouli rounds this out with a bite of earth. Some sandalwood gives this a sort of fuzzy feel. Performance is ideal. Longevity good, projection hits the sweet spot. Pretty strong. While the projection is not off the charts hard, it projects for an extended period of time. A well blended Guerlain fragrance.

Sweet, candy-like briefly - almost syrupy. The edges crumble away with the addition of citrus, a hint of sharp pepper. Changes its mood quickly. It becomes more soft.

The tea is prominent. The floral notes in the heart are delicate, non-feminine. They're softened by the tea note, made earthier somehow. The sandalwood & patchouli from the base kind of merge into one note, with a hint of cocoa performing some magic. Also later, a smidge of a delicate flower note stays.

In the end I enjoy this and I don't consider this exclusively for a man.

L’Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extreme starts off with a slight sour note mixed some bitterness. The drydown is warm, smooth, and creamy. I really dig its chocolatey quality -- it smells delicious, and the sweetness is tamed unlike other in-your-face gourmands. This is a definite upgrade of the regular L’Instant, which is sharper and uses more patchouli in my opinion.

My LIDGE - the one with the black lining around edge, purchased from Guerlain Toronto, is powerful, and extremely long-lasting on my skin, and even a day after application, I can still smell it. My only regret is I didn’t order an extra bottle. Two thumbs up for this fantastic fragrance!
