    Definitely agreed with the first 2, I just don't remember the L'instant EDT enough too fairly place it though although I know it wasn't better than DHI or L'IDGE

    I have not tried L'Instant Extreme and except of very late drydown that reminds me of A*Men/Pure Malts drydown I dont like L'Instant EDT because it smells too "old" to me. I may consider it in like 5 years (I am 29 now)

    Best scent:
    1. Dior Homme
    2. Dior Homme Intense
    3. L'Instant EDT

    Most versatile:
    1. Dior Homme Intense
    2. Dior Homme
    3. L'Instant EDT

    Best longevity:
    1. Dior Homme Intense
    2. L'Instant EDT
    3. Dior Homme

    If I am forced to choose just 1 I'd probably pick DHI just because of longevity that is outstanding, and versatility. I dont find it more cloying in summer than Boss Bottled of my colleague and jeans and t-shirt are absolutely ok with it.

    For formal events or dates which lasts just few hours and you are dressed up, I'd pick Dior Homme.

    Dior Homme Intense. I find it very sophisticated, wearable, innovative, subtle. I don't like the fruity vibe of L'Instant and I find L'Instant Extreme a bit too potent.

    Yep. Though 1 and 2 border on interchangeable for me and number 4 is a very distant 4th.

    Dior Homme. I don't want it to be any more gourmand than it already is.

    from the voting , i can see that there is a BIG difference between L'instant and L'instant extreme! is there so much difference in term of how they smell ? aren't they similar ?

    To me yes, there is a fairly big difference. L'instant EDT has a more citrusy opening, whereas with L'instant Extreme, you get the deep cocoa accord from the beginning. L'instant Extreme smells a little like a root beer float to my nose, and is more linear in its development, whereas L'instant EDT is more of the anise/vanilla/tea/woods and is much more complex to me.

    I prefer the EDT version of L'instant, and it surprises me a bit to see it getting killed so badly in this matchup, but these are 4 truly excellent fragrances, and you couldn't go wrong with any of them. The EDT projects much better than the EDP for me, and the longevity is roughly the same, with the EDP perhaps lasting 9 hours, vs. 7 to 8 hours for the EDT. I like the EDP, but I've wound up swapping two new bottles of it away over the past few months. I may regret that once fall/winter rolls around. Probably should have kept one of those bottles...

    I agree with the overwhelming votes for Extreme which is a masterpiece in my book. Even though I love Dior Homme intense the Guerlain is just in another class by itself in every department. If I was exiled to Siberia and could only take one fragrance for the rest of my life it would be Guerlains L'Instant Extreme Pour Homme.lol

    I think L'Instant PH Extreme is excellent, one of the best Guerlain's fragrances. I don't particularly like Dior Homme/Intense, too "hollow" and synthetic for me.

    Just had DHI and L'instant de Guerlain Extreme delivered and they are both incredible scents. I'm just about to wipe out my local store of DHI before reformulation. If I had to choose one? I think that the latter is probably winning the wrist to wrist competition at the moment as it seems darker somehow. But I really don't want to choose between them!

    i can get l'instant 100 ml , or l'instant extreme 75 ml for the same price
    is the extreme worth the price difference ? or having 25 ml more is the way to go ?

    Hard to say. While they do have many similarities there is also differences. For some occasions I would choose the non-Extreme and for others the Extreme version.

    What I can say is that im 99% sure you will find occasions to wear either.
