    Question L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme vs Dior Homme Intense

    If you had to pick one, which would you choose and why?

    As for my own opinion, I'm testing them side to side and I find Intense to be a little too powdery, whereas Extreme is a little less interesting and has poorer longevity. Still trying to decide which I like better.

    It's like 10:1 in favor of L'Instant Extreme. My gf also prefers Extreme. I'm still testing though. thx

    While we're here, how in the hell can you purchase L'instant de Guerlain Extreme? I checked Google Shopping about a month or two back and it was on all kinds of websites. Now it's on one. I know it's easy to get overseas, so does anyone know of foreign companies who have this who are willing to ship to the U.S.? They even have it on the French Sephora Dammmn.

    Keep checking strawberry . They usually restock faster than other sites. I say it should re-appear again sometime at the end of this week....

    I looked for many months and never had any luck with strawbeerrynet. They get it and it sells out QUICKLY! At long last I found it on Amazon and bought 2 bottles with the idea that I might sell one...but now that I have it I love it so much I am keeping the second bottle.

    Persistence is the key... Keep looking on strawberrynet and amazon every time you are online. Eventually you will find it.

    Luckily for me, i get to buy it from a store in my area . They happen to be one of the official Guerlain stores , so they almost often have it in stock , if not, they re-stock right away .

    How did you manage to smell the reformulation. It's even not available for sale.

    Well, it's no longer for sale in the US... but it's available here in Iceland, which almost certainly means it's available in Europe. However, since I don't think the turnover for DHI was particularly enormous here, there are still tons of vintages, but I see the reformulation now and again depending on the store and its popularity.

    Can you compare both side by side? I'm wondering what major changes have been made.
