    Default L'instant De Guerlain vs Chanel Allure

    haha yes another one from me...

    anyways,

    1)what do you guys think what is most appropriate for a 19 y/o college kid?
    2)which one do you just like better?
    3)best for casual wear?

    I have both, along with l'instant extreme, and I would say that Allure is better for almost all occasions. The only time the guerlain is better is if you want to be quiet with the projection. HOwever, the extreme version is a different animal. The allure is better than the extreme in the fall, and extreme is better than allure in the winter (assuming you get snow, otherwise allure is better).

    Thanks! I was VERY interested in l'instant, but there were just too many reviews about it being a very "fancy" old person fragrance. Didn't think it was worth it.

    IMO, Chanel Allure would be safe for a 19-yr old young man for casual wear. For your second question, they smell differently, and I like them both. I would prefer to spray L'Instant when wearing a short sleeve polo and a pair of khaki pants.

    yeah, it seems I'll probably get the allure homme. It's a shame since I am dying to know what the l'instant smells like, but the sample prices are like 10$ (for a 1 ml, when I can get 2.5 oz for 33$..).

    Although both fine, L'instant De Guerlain is a better option IMO.

    When i smell instant guerlain (either the EDT or EDP) i see the picture of a business man, wearing a suit and tie. Its not about age, it more comes to the dress code. Imo it fits people that dress smart or smart-casual; I wouldnt wear this with T-shirt and ripped jeans per example.

    On the other hand, Allure fits better to the description written at the beggining of the topic.

    But i encourage you to wear what you like and what you think it best suits you and not what other people say.

    I generally wear polo shirts/button ups with jeans and khakis. Do you think it would suit me then?

    How about in a classroom setting?
    Which settings would you think it'd be most appropriate for?

    IMO, both can be worn with a suit or jeans/polo shirt. I don't believe fragrances have a dress code.

    I know that fragrances don't have a "dress code" but surely you must agree that some fragrances just aren't suited for some situations or looks. I just want to make sure that if I have this fragrance, that I'll actually USE it, instead of waiting for that one special occasion.

    I don't agree! The formal/informal labels don't make much sense to me & I would happily were both those with jeans/t-shirt or in a job interview, during the day or at night.

    Thats great to know! Plus, if worse comes to worst. I suppose I could always swap/trade this if I don't like it.

    L'Instant de Guerlain is by far the superior fragrance.

    Allure is good fragrance that suitable for your age and I consider it a safe fragrance.
    But L'Instant is awesome perfume, it is not dated but you should test it first.

    I really like Allure Homme, it's my favorite from the Allure line and I prefer it over Bleu as well, but L'Instant de Guerlain is the better fragrance.

    Both are top class perfumes.
    I prefer Allure Homme, and find it's a masterpiece.
    L'Instant lacks longevity on my skin, which is why I have L'Instant Extreme.
    I still prefer Allure Homme to both L'Instant versions, since neither Cacao nor Coco is my cup of tea

    For young:
    1.Allure.

    I thing L'instant is for 30y/o.
    L'instant extreme- more cacao

    Try:
    YSL La Nuit De L'Homme
    Creed Aventus- it's expensive but longevity is very very good.
