    Lightbulb L'Instant Edp. Where can I get it?

    I have looked and all I can find is the Edt. Where in the heck can I find some? Thanks for any info.

    L'Instant de Guerlain? I saw it online at StrawberryNet.com, but being in the States you should try the US sites to see if you can get a better price. Right now at StrawberryNet, they have the EdP in 30ml(US$55) and 50ml(US$65.50).

    From what I can see, they only have the feminine version. Boo hoo.

    OH! I'm so sorry! I was reading posts from the homepage and not forums and didn't think to look at which board this was from!

    I'll be going into the shopping district in a couple days and will look out for the Men's EdP for you. If they have it I'll get them to hold it and PM you. Shipping might be a bit of problem though..

    This EDP is a masterpiece. I simply love it, in my top 5.

    i ve seen it pretty much everywhere , in very basic shops like marionnaud, sephora etc.

    i bought it at my airport, in duty free.

    only saw 75ml bottles.

    You have to find it, because it s an amazing scent.

    Good luck !

    Interesting. I smelled the EdT and thought it was great, it faded away very quickly though because of the cheap SA spraying me only one quarter of a spray. Thanks for reminding me I should try it again and look for the EdP.

    Thank you all kindly. I got a sample vial and to me it is a different animal than the edt. Deeper, richer, and longer lasting. The edt is gone in minutes. I may have to to South Africa.

    EdT gone in minutes? L'Instant is one of the longest-lasting frags on me, which says a lot because most frags simply don't last on me at all.

    Same here, edt longevity was not huge but decent for sure.

    Yet the EDP stays much more, and is deeper.

    I actually found it in the duty free shop in Chicago last year bythe Sunglass Hut ---however I was through there in March and they didn't have it. , I did order it from Paris and they shipped to me here in Vancouver. I have been harassing the Guerlain people here in Canada about it.

    All i know is that when my current EdP bottle is depleted, i will get another...even if it's all the way from Paris. Too bad i can't recall the name of that shop in St. Thomas i got it from.

    *edit* What's the deal with the EdP not being sold in the USA??

    It's crazy. Guerlain is smart when they make scents but obviously they don't have the smarts we in the US want when they don't sell a verstion here.

    I got my L'Instant PH edp by asking a Paris bound friend to pick up a bottle for me. I was very happy he did--the stuff is a joy to wear.

    When the edt first came out I didn't like it and like a few posters on this thread thought it had no longevity. After a few wearings I warmed up to it and noticed that it stuck around on me a full day, and until I took a shower the second day. I don't know why wrist testing didn't reveal this longevity to me, but it's what I experience now when I wear it.

    Another moment that made me fall for the edt came on laundry day. The scent collection makes me enjoy the moment of the day when I wash my button down shirts. Sometimes I get a whiff off them, in fact most times, and I try to figure out which one has which scent on it long into the dead-drydown and long after I've forgotten what shirt went with which scent. It's fun and seldom am I confused about which thing I'm smelling. Once I was smelling a shirt and couldn't figure out the scent on it. It was confusing and annoying because the scent was fantastic--slightly sweet, some leather, and nicely involved dryness. A warm comfort. Later it hit me--that had to be the shirt I was wearing over L'Instant PH edt. Since then I've loved the scent and it has loved me back.

    Now that I have the edp I have a huge chip on my shoulder--there can't be more than a half-dozen people in my metro area who wear it. That's how cool I am. Heh.

    So is the EdP really that superior to the EdT? The reviews make it sound like the two are fairly different, with the EdP definitely being superior.

    Yeah its pretty amazing that you have to pull teeth to get some stuff here and if I'm not mistaken the Edp is about 3 times higher priced than the Edt. "Shudder".

    studdg: IMHO it is much better than the Edt. Deeper, richer, and longer lasting.

    A bottle can be obtained by e-mailing Guerlain's Champs Champs-Elysées shop. The cost for a 75mL bottle is 62 Euros, plus 25 Euros in shipping. Thats about $135 U.S.

    The person at the Guerlain boutique in San Francisco Neiman's told me that Guerlain won't sell the EdP version of this in the U.S. You can find it in Europe and Asia; also, duty-free shops at airports outside the U.S., apparently even in Mexico, have it.

    Can't believe you guys need so powerful scents - you find the EdT too weak?! Even when I test (I don't own L'Instant!) the EdT, the stuff won't leave me until 2 days after! To me, L'Instant is far too in-your-face. But you know guys, in Europe we have a prejudice about Americans that they really like in-your-face stuff - don't know if it's true really...

    If that was true, then Guerlain would sell the EdP in the USA.

    I payed 4 Euro for a brand new, shrinkwrapped 75ml bottle on eBay. The seller told me afterwards he had sent it to a wrong address and I thought he probably didn't want to sell it for that price, but in the end the story was true and the bottle finally arrived. The strenght of the fragrance makes it quite different from the EdT IMHO, but still it shares some similarities. Basically the EdP is more opultent, perfect for usage in wintertime.

    I bought the edp version from ebay as well. At times I enjoy it, but sometimes I find it a little too powerful and even harsh. I bought it after really liking the edt version althogh I did find it faded quickly, and I do the think the two are quite different scents. That being said, I keep falling in and out of love with Givenchy's Pi. I recently applied a tester version which I found to be very strong with a strong wood note that I really enjoyed. I am just wondering is there a distinct difference between the edp and edt versions that warrant a purchase of this frag?

    Whenever I wear L'Instant EDP my mum would comment on it, like "Your cologne is so powerful!" or "Is today a special day?"
