IMO yes. Others will disagree.
Just like the title. I purchased a big bottle from fragrancenet of L'Instant and really enjoy this item. I am not a big fan of the initial citrus but it disappears fairly quick. Then it develops into a buttery cacao that remains masculine and elegant. I have heard nothing but positive about Extreme, but is it worth owning both? If so where can you legitimately buy some?
IMO yes. Others will disagree.
no nope and i see edt is bettter
with good sillage
extreme longevity wothout sillage
If you don't have Dior Homme Intense then I would get that one first.
If you like the original and want less citrus and more of that deep cocoa/vanille accord that lasts for ten hours plus then its worth it.
yes except the parfum version is hard to get

L'instant didn't work for/with me (mint/tea in the citrus? unsure) Extreme is one of my favorites if not the favorite.

I really like drydown of L'Instant EDT which is very sophisticated, elegant, spicy woods with bit of cocoa (and I doesn't care about top notes at all). Is Extreme version still that elegant or it is much more gourmandor too heavy (Opium PH type) ?
For example Dior Homme is less gourmand than DHI and to me is more formal, elegant and sophisticated. It is same with L'Instant vs Extreme version ?

I have both and yes, it's worth it. L'instant is fresher (read: has more citrus) and lighter. Both are patchouli dominated with the sweet gourmand accords. To me the EDP smells like cocoa powder.. while the EDT is more chocolate cookies. If you were to get one, just get the EDP but bear in mind that if you enjoy citrus, you won't have as much of it there.

Yes they both are worth owning in my opinion. The EDt starts off with a blast of citrus and grapefruit then warms up with an awesome cocoa anise accord. The EDP has cocoa right from the start with the citrus way in the background. Both have awesome longevity and sillage on my skin. A must have in your arsenal..women love both...
I feel yes. The EDT is something I like wearing during the day, it opens with more citrus than the EDP and is lighter, more versatile. The EDP I bust out for gong out at night to a bar or club, on dates. It's more dense, powdery and wouldn't be something I'd wear during the day.
I prefer the EDP but still wear the EDT.
