Thanks in advance for reading.
38 year old here with minimal cologne fragrance/knowledge.
Have been wearing YSL L'Homme for about 7 years now and simply adore it.
That said, have grown a bit bored of it and it last maybe 2 hours on my skin.
So, I ordered a bunch of samples from Decant Shop (good prices and super fast shipping, fyi) and have narrowed my search down to Chanel Allure and L'Instant de Guerlain.
These two smell incredible to me.
The former is a bit more generic to my amateur nose, but still fresh and invigorating. Has a similar profile to L'Homme, which I like.
L'Instant does the same but I find it far more complex; it seems to change every couple of hours and has certain smells that I don't think I have ever smelled before.
So, what do you people think about these two?
Can you comment on both/either of their respective projections and longevity?
Side note: the L'Instant seems to be fading from my skin rather quickly...
