    Default So i decided to get L'Instant and....

    so my previous thread was trying to decide between l'instant and armani code, and i went with l'instant. blind buy (i just think its more fun that way)

    so tonight(well its 6 am so i guess last night), i went to a fancy wedding. what a perfect opportunity to whip my new bad boy out. very classy occasion. every male in suit and tie and every girl in dress. so i wear L'Instant de guerlain to the wedding, and i promise you that the following has absolute zero overreaction:


    i got literally, and yes i did count, literally 16 compliments at ONE wedding on how great i smell. Im the type that mingles alot and tried to talk to everyone, and i received literally 16 compliments on how great i smelled. 3 of them were from guys saying "yo not to be weird, but what cologne are you wearing its great" . the other 13 were girls whos reactions ranged from "hey u smell nice" to "OMG YOU SMEELLL SOOOO GOOD"

    It is would be a huge understatemant to say that i am absolutely thrilled with my purchase and anyone who does not have this fragrance please PLEASEEE go out and buy it. i assure you 100% that its worth it and it WILL get u compliments.

    One of my absolute favourites, it's just the right level of gourmand I think.

    Yes. I get quite a nice aura from L'Instant de Guerlain pH. But your ability to mingle around alot & talk to everybody counts more than you think in garnering these compliments... Work your charm while wearing other fragrances and you'll see what I mean.

    thanks guys!

    i think it was the absolute perfect fragrance for the occasion. like someone said, its just the right level of gourmand that kinds grabs people in with its warm sweetness, but its also very mature at the same time. not the mature in the sense that its fit for an older gentlemen, but in the sense of being sophisticated and mature regardless of age. idk its really hard to explain. but it is absolutely EXACTLY what i was looking for.

    Funny, I just tried this today and was impressed as well. It kept reminding me of Hypnotic Poison, only drier and a bit more woody. I kept getting random whiffs of a nice smell and wondering what it was, until I sniffed my wrist and remembered. It is sophisticated and mature without being "old", just an good scent.

    I'm glad you like it. L'instant really is a special fragrance, almost in a class of its own. Anyone who hasn't tried it needs to. It blew me away when I first tried it, and I really love this one.

    Great choice.

    I remember the day it was released in September 2004. I swooned at the duty free and bought it instantly. The EdP was like the second coming. I love the EdP more. BMen by TM came out the same month. I bought them together. Man, that was a day.

    No, they represent completely different genres - and L'Instant is by far the better of the two.
