    Default L'Instant (EAU DE PARFUM)

    Hi, I just got L'Instant. I asked my friend from the U.S. to get it for me at the Duty Free and he bought it in Thailand (airport). L'Instant (extreme fragrance - parfum), 75ml at the price of 2,410 Baht or about USD66. What do you think about this price? I haven't seen the extreme version on any web sites that offer discount.

    Those who own this bottle, where did you get it from and how much? I have been to its official web site and for the Extreme version they only do 75ml.

    (I'm sniffing my wrist now!)

    I have no idea how much it costs, since I've never seen it in stores or online. I do know that I want it, and that you're a lucky guy

    I bought mine from the Guerlain Institute in Montreal, Canada, for $75CAN, before taxes (add an extra 16%).

    Hi Apis, you paid about 2,600 Baht, a bit more expensive than my purchase.

    Hi Bizzolt, I am glad you said I am lucky! I had read about people talking over this one and I knew it was hard to get the extreme version. My friend did a good job!

    I got mine for £20 (about 36 dollars) although it is a tester.

    O Dante, you make me jealous! Wish I could get the tester. By the way, how much do you like this scent and is there any similar ones to this?

    It is wonderful, but mainly because the original EDT is too. There is not a great deal of difference between them to my nose - the main thing being that the EDP has sweeter basenotes that give it a more gourmand feel and move it closer to A*Men territory - which may be worth checking out if you haven't already.

    I just bought a (4.2?) oz EDT tester from Supermarky for $24.00 US including shipping! :bounce:

    About the same as you--65 or 66 dollars at a Mexican airport.

    Wonderful scent. Better than the EDT, if only because it's longer lasting.

    Magnificent, rich scent -- very sweet opening, with a superb incense-filled drydown. Longer lasting than the EDT, and not so sharp in the opening. I got mine on eBay for under $40, but cannot find any more and will make this bottle last as long as possible. May have my sister check it out next time she's in London -- same with M7 Fresh.

    I've been testing this (the EDT) for a while now and couldn't make up my mind. After reading this post today, I had to go and get it. I agree, the opening is not as in-your-face as with the EDT, but this is so much richer and smooth.

    BTW, I phoned to store early morning to ask them to keep me a bottle in case they run out of stock, but she told me not to worry, they had quite a few (EDP) on the shelf!! Got it for ZAR 570 = +/- $78.
