but I'd get it on Ebay
Ive only seen it available on ebay and I dont know if I trust that place.
but I'd get it on Ebay
Your best bet would be to check Strawberrynet (http://us.strawberrynet.com/main.aspx) every few days. They usually have L'Instant Pour Homme Eau Extreme in stock and the price is nice (I think around $65 shipped). Strawberrynet is very reputable and all of their fragrances are authentic (I've purchased from them on numerous occasions). If you want it immediately you should contact the Guerlain boutique in Las Vegas (702-732-7008). They are very friendly and will ship.

+1 for strawberrynet.com. You have to check there frequently to score it as they restock it every 3 weeks or so and it only lasts a day or two before it is gone again. The price is $61.00 shipped to the USA. I have ordered two bottles of this stuff from them over the last couple of months. Its the best place to get it.
I just ordered my bottle last saturday, should be arrived in 1 or 2 days. And yes you should check strawberry.net every couple of days because when i checked the next day to order another one it was gone.
I checked every 3 days for the last couple of months, finally my long wait has paid off.
If in the UK, department stores like Debenhams. Was cheaper there than what I have seen people sell their used ones(!) for on Ebay.
I scored two back up bottle that were testers on Ebay for wicked cheep price - I think the sell thought they were edt versions. Ebay is not a bad place to check and I don't think you run the risk of counterfit of L"Instant.
i finally got mine!!!
worth the wait.
Beautyencounter has some as of this writing here
I got mine off strawberrynet for $60 shipped by checking it twice a day until it was in stock. Took me about 2 weeks but it was worth it.
Yea, i think strawberry.net would be the safe place to get this baby, but it takes some effort to get it.
Why will DHI be history?
Are you referring to the recent reformulation rumors?
If not, its former limited edition status has changed to permanent.
There has been a recent massive thread on the reformulation of this fragrance.
Basically in September Dior will be releasing reformulated versions of both the original and the intense. Whilst the original looks like it is going to be tweeked the intense will be a complete overhaul ie a different fragrance.
With the intense the cocoa/vanille and amber are going to be removed and they are adding pear and ambrette which is a musky type scent. So it is changing from a sexy seductive semi gourmand fragrance that we know and love to a fruity musky cocoction. And that is why a lot of us are buying back up bottles because the current formula will in time disappear from the shops.
I'm from the USA. I WAS ALL EXCITED WHEN I saw it on beautyencounter , but then I realized it was the new "reformulated"one because the "original" one only comes in 50ml size. Still on the hunt to buy this online...
Oh sweet! Thank you. It's just that when I read the description on fragrantica it said it only came in 50ml. I guess that was when they originally wrote the desvription in 2007 and they just never bothered to update it. Anyways, thanks again
That is terrible news. I was looking forward to getting a bottle of DHI. I already have Guerlain L'instant pour Homme EDP and wanted DHI for less formal situations.
Does anyone know a good alternative to Dior Homme Intense, as the new notes sound terrible.
Personally for me, DHI > L'Instant Extreme, definitely getting backup bottles of DHI, my signature scent.
Sure, but the end is near and I'd rather find an alternative before I get hooked on DHI :-)
You know to make a sexy Triad of fragrances Rochas Man imo is well worth checking out and I find it better than the thicky syrupy New Haarlem. It's not as good as the other two but a good gourmand for casual use.
L'Instant Extreme PH, DHI, And Rochas Man and you are set and ready to Rock the world.lol
