    Dior Homme Intense is good for the evenings and going out as it has that smooth sexy vibe. L'Instant Extreme is better for the day as it lasts twelve hours or so . Both are excellent though the vintage DHI is the best though the reformulated one is good if you have not tried the vintage. ( Its not worth getting the extreme and the EDT L'Instant. Extreme is the way to go).

    Best too try them in a store again if you are unsure as you are the one that has to happy with the fragrance.

    I simply don't care for Dior Homme Intense. It's not even in the same race with L'Instant De Guerlain Extreme.

    get DHI ot LInstant EDT not extreme. The Extreme version has less projection that the regular version.
    Or get Midnight in Paris if you want DHI without the makeup note.

    I'm a DJ. I'm in a club 2-3 times a week. I am a club fragrance addict. I have them all. Dior Homme Intense is BY FAR, THE BEST and MY MOST complimented club fragrance. I don't merely get regular compliments everytime I wear this out, I get INTENSE compliments everytime i wear this out (no pun). People not only tell me I smell good, but they tell me they want to eat me cause I smell heavenly. I am not exaggerating. You simply cannot lose with DHI if you're looking for a night out fragrance.

    As far as L'instant Guerlain Extreme goes...I'm probably about to put it up for sale. It stinks to me. I don't get the hype at all. I've forced myself to wear this stuff so I can "get it" but no. There's always other bottles in my collection I'd rather wear and smell like.

    Dior Homme Intense then L'instant Extreme then l'instant in order of which is nicest to wear. They are also in order of which is least suitable to wear daily.. with L'instant being light and fresh enough to be an everyday work horse. DHI is far too rich and one would easily get tired of it.

    I have both. They're very different.

    The Guerlain is very complex, smooth, citric, mildly herbal and green with a rich vanilla base. It does not last long on me.

    The Dior is bright, sweet and potent with a powdery quality in the drydown that last ages.

    Dior Homme Intense is better than L'Instant. Sexier too. L'Instant is more "formal" imo, while Dior Homme Intense is the ultimate metrosexual, going out, kinda sophisticated scent. Both are 10 out of 10 fragrances though. But go for the Dior.

    Hey friend, just get yourself a nice 100 ml bottle of DHI .

    There's no way i could recommend you buying L'instant extreme for nights out, since its projection is horrible.

    As far as smell, DHI is the winner here , in my humble opinion ...

    Good luck

    Midnight in Paris does smell similar to Bvlgari Black and all, but it smells just like Armani Code to me. Actually, it smells like how Armani Code should have smelled. It's a very nice one to have in the collection and the bottle is frak'n sweet!

    I don't notice a rubbery note in MiP. I think it's more like Armani Code than Bvlgari Black.

    I just got a bottle of L'Instant De Guerlain Extreme and it is pretty fantastic. Whereas the EDT version starts off citrusy and ends up smelling like cocoa, the Extreme version kicks things off with the cocoa. The EDT and EDP smell like two different scents for the first hour or so. Within 2 hours they smell very similar if not identical. The Extreme version has a much stronger cocoa than EDT though. I can't vouch for longevity just yet, but so far I prefer the Extreme version.

    I still have not tried DHI, just regular DH. I'd like to try DHI and see what all the fuss is about.

    The only comment I've ever had when wearing LIDGE, from a male friend at a bar: "Someone smells like patchouli, is that you?"

    I thought this would be a compliment-getter, so far I'm a bit disappointed.

    DHI is amazing! I have been converted. I used to think LIDG EDT > LIDGE and both being than DH. So I naturally assumed they would be better than DHI. Wrong. I think DHI is best of the four.

    Which one did you get? I tried the newest reformulation and I was very disappointed in the drydown compared to the original formulation. I really like the original formulation but I am not willing to pay as much as what is being charged on the grey market. I currently on LIDGE and even though it does wear really close to the skin after the first few hours I really like the scent and is definitely worth a full bottle.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Epic Man
    3. Noir de Noir
    4. Tonka Imperiale
    5. Musc Ravageur
    6. Bois d'argent
    7. Apple Brandy
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Tobacco Vanille

    Both.
    But I lean towards L Ínstant .Sylvaine Delacourt´s work...
    One of the best Guerlain´s perfums for men...Habit Rouge is the " non plus ultra....".
