    Beautyencounter sells the 2.5 oz EDP version of L'instant. The big difference between the two that the EDP is much more gourmand and longer lasting than the EDT. Although they share similiarites, there is enough of a difference to warrant a purchase of the EDP. Both are masterpiece fragrances IMO.....

    I've never sampled it, but I'm under the impression Patou PH would be in the running....appearantly, it's discontinued and I've never heard a bad word about it.

    I bought the last L'instant from Beautyencounter a few days ago. =D

    Difference the top notes. EDP goes straight to gourmand where as the EDT goes Fresh then 180 degrees to gourmand.

    EDT last 5-6 hours on average skin. EDP last 8-9 hours.

    EDT requires more sprays for better projection. EDP monster projection, anything over 2 sprays will slowly kill you if in confined space.

    *disclaimer all of which I listed is heresy as I have no received my EDP l instant yet. but I've yet to hear anything bad about EDP L'instant.

    I wish I knew All I know is that it's easy to find overseas. If I could find a company who would sell to the U.S. and is relatively cheap, I'd be set.

    Not sure what the deal is with L'Instant Extreme in US. I got mine from Beauty Encounter, but now they appear to be sold out. Try calling the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas.

    I have both and find them pretty similar. Whether you need both is more a matter of your own preferences and wallet I think.

    The EdP on me seems to last longer, but project less. It is more gourmand, but in true Guerlain style, it is a very subtle gourmand. It does not POUND like some of the "clubber" scents many here favor. When you read "cocoa notes" do not think in terms of something like A*MEN.

    ctran: Not sure where you heard or read that about the EdP. It's stronger than EdT, but I don't find it to be a projection monster. People have to get close- which is good thing. They'll want to.

    As to the original query about hardest to find frag, a quick story. I had read in here about the legendary Patou Pour Homme. In a back forth of PMs with another member, he happened to mention he had seen a bottle of Patou Pour Homme in an odd little store in an office complex.

    It was 2 miles from my house, so I lept in the car. It was a teeny tiny convenience store to service a twin tower office complex. We're talking about place smaller than most average bedrooms. It was off the street and has no real "walk-in foot traffic;" just mostly visited by people who work in the office towers on weekdays.

    For some odd reason, he had small case filled with colognes. I searched and didn't see it. Finally asked him, and he had it behind the counter. Sold it to me for $46.

    I got it home and tried it out. I fear the years of being in a store which is not temperature controlled all the time probably has mostly "killed" it. It has enough of its presence left to give me an idea of the scent, but seems to have very little longevity, which isn't what I would expect from this scent.

    It is very "perfumey." I think part of it's appeal and mystique is that when it was originally available, it had a very refined and high end male perfume scent not unlike Amouage Gold, or Clive Christian Number One. But, it was available as a standard designer scent for around $60 or so.

    In terms of "attitude," it's kind of like Vintage Tabarome or maybe Trumper's Eucris. It doesn't smell like either, but it's very old school-ish, manly and for many here, way too "mature" in feel. For most of you in this thread, this isn't the way "dad" would smell, more like "grandad." I kind of like the vibe of it, but were it still in good shape, I wouldn't wear it often. It feels a bit mature and formal at times even for me (and I'm kind of mature guy).

    (Final note: When I first posted about this find in February, many local BNers PMed me for location of store and descended on the poor fellow who runs the place. There is no more Patou Pour Homme there, and if he had anything else worthwhile, it was no doubt snapped up.)

    Ordered from that seller ended up being a fake or watered down so I returned it. Lasted only 2-3 hours and smells nothing like the EDT version and I mean completely off.

    On a slightly related note to the OP's question I am keen to get hold of L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Cristaux D'Agrumes - BN directory shows this to be a limited edition but in production.

    I haven't been able to track it down online - does anyone know if it's one of those that is available only in certain boutiques?

    It's also known as L'instant de Guerlain Citrus Crystals. I imagine it's the opposite of the EDP; it's more based on the citrus notes and is lighter. Beauty Encounter used to have it, but not anymore. The EDP is more available overseas, but that version might be really hard to track down.
