    Default Poll: Dior Homme Intense vs. L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme

    My thought behind this one as I've seen these two compared a LOT, including a thread, but I did not see a vote on it. Just curious what basenoters think...

    It all depends... how do you like your cocoa? Dry and powdery or wet and spicy? Both are sweet...

    I like both but prefer L'Instant Extreme, since it's more masculine and its cocoa-tonka bean dry down is just heavenly that when I get whiffs of it, I stop whatever I'm doing and tell myself, "Mmmmm... Someone smells goooood... Oh, wait that's me."

    Hmmm, I'm looking forward to the outcome of this poll. I'm very interested in both these fragrances and I'll definitely be picking up one or the other for the fall/winter.

    I love DH intense, though it's surprisingly unintense with the sillage and longevity for me. However, I just bought a L'instant X decant, so we'll see how that compares.

    I strongly dissagree. DHI is boring as hell compared to L'Instant Extreme, IMO.

    Good point. I guess I was trying to war the two. However, I got my LIDGE decant in three days ago, and have been wearing it since, just bought a bottle...so both should have been an option

    I have recently just purchased L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme and its fantastic it really takes you on a fragrance journey. It opens with a warm freshness with citrus and coco then you get the florals with the coco. After a few hours you notice the woods with the heavenly coco then the dry downdown is yes you have guessed it a divine powdery coco.lol (how many times have I mentioned coco). Finally the basenotes are a sweet vanille musk which at this stage stays close to the skin.

    I get 12 hours out of this fragrance and I love every minute of it and would pay double the price for this scent. It feels like a niche fragrance to me.

    Cannot make a call here. Love 'em both but for different applications.

    Would say for day wear I prefer L'IdGE but night wear DHI.

    Both are good... hard to pick one over the other truthfully! I would say DHI for me right now, but Guerlain Extreme would be better for me when I am a bit older.

    I like the Old dior homme intense, but the current version does not stand up to the current LIDGE.

    I have both of these and tend to wear DHI a little bit more the LIDGE. LIDGE is good, don't get me wrong there, but DHI is great. Both garner compliments, I just like the smell of DHI more.

    I don't understand the comparison between these two. They're completely different to me. Maybe the cocoa, but it's very sweet in DHI, and bitter in LIDGE. Completely different otherwise

    That "cosmetic" "lipstick" essence you get from DHI is AWESOME. I smell it hugely in Shalimar parfum Initial too. I cannot get enough it. It makes about as much sense as saying that a drink can be really "dry". But in it's own way DHI is really DRY in the most spectacular way. MUCH LOVE...(Now only if I can find a bottle for a steal of a deal!!)

    DHI by a mile and a half. DH revolutionized men's fragrances but LIDGE is just meh, remove the Guerlain name and you will pick Animale animale over it.

    LIDGE for me by a long way. I've been trying to like DHI for a year now but just couldn't get past the make-up note. In fact i've just swapped it away and can definitely say I won't be re-purchasing.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    LIDGE for me. I thought I would love DHI, but didn't measure up to the hype. I would still like to try the vintage.
