    Default LDDM VS L'Instant Guerlain homme extreme

    Of these two which would you choose and why?

    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme, but they're not exactly similar.

    I'm not crazy about incense fragrances, so it was an easy decision.

    I do realize they are different, but I'm just on the fence on which one to buy.

    Hmmmmm, I have both and since they're not very similar, not sure how to assess the question.

    I think L'Instant is a more versatile scent. Good for work or play. Women tend to like it. Kind of sweet but not cloying or loud. Wears a bit light on me.

    LDDM is much more daring, dramatic and stronger. I wear it to work, but not everyone would be comfortable doing so. Leans romantic IMO.

    LIDGE wears light on me as well so I was looking for something a little stronger for the winter, I have had LDDM in the past and always sold or traded it but now seem to be craving it again.

    LIDGE is more versatile , if i have to choose between the two id go LIDGE , but LDDM is a work of art but picks its occassion.

    You couldn't have picked two fragrances which are more further apart in smell and concept. Personally I'd go for for L'DDM, as a special occasion fragrance.

    Neither. If you must go with one of those 2, I'd pick the Guerlain.

    I keep scratching my head at how some of these fragrances get pitted against each other. Either way, I'll take the Tauer any day over L'Instant and most other fragrances if given only one choice.

    If the extreme version is anything like the EDT, LDDM by a country mile

    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme is a good scent; L’Air du Désert Marocain is a masterpiece. That’s the huge difference, if you ask me.

    They are both must-haves IMO.

    That said, I wear the Tauer a LOT more often. Then again, incense is my favorite scent genre.

    I own both and love them equally. They are so different that I can't really comment on a vs. question. I say get 'em both.

    I prefer L'Instant Extreme.

    I'm not a fan of the cumin note in LdDM; I get a hippie vibe from it.

    I've never noticed that...and I hate cumin notes, except in food.

    Ironic, since L'Instant Extreme is pretty heavy on the patchouli, which most people would agree is the universal hippie scent!

    I prefer Guerlain L'Instant Extreme, it is easy to wear. I got bored with the Tauer never finding that special occasion to wear it and sold it. You buy perfumes to use them not to just store them.

    L'air is a beautiful, wildly evocative, stirring masterpiece. L'Instant is the smell of chocolate pudding.

    I think the way around this is simply to wear it every day.
