thanks Kaern , its raining in karachi since 3 days thats y the weather is pleasant.
Hi GMK -- I'm fine -- hope it's not too hot in Karachi? Yeah -- never got round to Lui and it has been discontinued now -- over here anyway.
ha ha ... thanks. have a safe trip.. cheers
L'Instant, GMK , no gender issues with that -- although I think the extreme version is nicer also -- I'm off to Germany for a couple of weeks from Wednesday, won't have access to Basenotes for a while, in case you think I'm not replying.
Unisex at a pinch, I would say -- try the 'extreme' version, it's less powdery
Hi GMK -- I'm fine thanks - Dior Homme has that lipsticky vibe to it, which gives it that feminine slant, but I have been happy wearing it. I wouldn't worry about it, if you really like it. Easier said than done though, I know. There are lots of Iris based scents to choose from that might suit you better.
Your nose must be more refined than mine -- I think there is some chocolate in the Guerlain but the Dior is totally swamped by Iris imo.
I dont know why iam getting a persistent vibe of Dior Homme from L'Instant De Guerlain at middle notes.
do u get something like that kaern.?
I am testing tuscany at the moment after reading your review... still trying to find how its different from Azzaro PH. its becoming softer and does not contain soapy notes imo.
You are expert to me. look at your reviews man. no match
Fanatical or not, I still prefer Rive Gauche -- Egoiste is too loud for me. I haven't tested L'Instant pour femme so can't really say. L'instant Homme is very distinctively male in my opinion -- heavy and spicy, so you may have the female version.
BTW -- I'm no expert, but have exquisite taste (ha ha).
