    Default Guerlain L'instant Pour Homme - edp worth extra?

    Hi, a while back someone on here recommended I check out L'instant Extreme. It sounded good based on the reviews. I'm shopping round online at the moment and I see that the extreme version is about £20 more on average than the standard EDT version. Do you think it is worth spending the extra for the EDP?

    Thanks, Dan.

    IMHO it is worth the premium. It is more refined and less screechy than the EDT.

    Yes it is well worth it and very affordable. I would still get it if it was twice the price they are charging for it.

    I dont think its worth it. It may be much less expensive where you live though. Its at least twice as much here.

    Oh yes it's worth the extra. Excellent fragrance even at that price.

    Generally I find the EdP's worth the uptick in price.

    Divine eau Divine (refillable)

    Thanks for all the replies! The prices over here I think translate to roughly 52 US dollars for the EDT, 82 dollars for the EDP.

    I think a lot of people here would jump on a bottle for $82. I was happy paying $99 for mine online.

    Yes, it is worth the extra money. Both are great to own but if I had to choose one, then the winner......is Todd! I mean...L'Instant Extreme!

    I just tried it for the first time the other day and I'm very impressed. It's definitely one of those niche-quality designer fragrances that could easily retail for twice the going rate. I don't think you'll regret it IF you enjoy your gourmands.

    Yes it's definitely worth the money. On the other hand I would not sell the EDT short. It's been a while since I have worn it but I'm wearing it tonight and it is very nice. If you can get them both.

    Thanks a lot for all the replies. I'm looking forward to trying this one, amazing how highly regarded it is by so many people. Based on all your input I think I will go for the extreme version, as I can't afford both (not complaining, I'm sure it will be great). Thanks again for the input! Dan.
