    Default l'instant de guerlain extreme... idk anymore

    I've posted two threads before, both about LIDGE...


    1st post.. I was trying to find it...


    2nd post... I was saying where to buy it..


    I have sprayed a total of 4 sprays from the bottle.

    The first day I loved it; it was a nice warm day.
    Today it was a cold day, and I found it to be a bit too sweet.

    Don't get me wrong its an amazing fragrance and I might have to try it again on a warm day but right now I kinda feel like selling it. I cant post on basenotes marketplace, so I will hold onto it and give it another chance I guess.

    I kinda feel that the sweetness factor is a bit overwhelming, and that I might be too young for it as I am 20. If it seems like I will not like it after another 2 sprays, I think I will sell it on Amazon... or someone here. Lets see.

    It's a pretty nice fragrance. The cocoa is very sweet like you said. It remind me of Cocoa Krispies.

    It's awful stuff that only gets worse each wearing. I will take it off your hands for $20.

    It's interesting how some people really like this stuff and how others are take it or leave it.

    This stuff is great for me, but I already have 2 bottles. So I don't need another. But I know a lot of people blind bought it from hype and ended up not liking it. It fits my needs completely though. Love the stuff.

    Actually laughed out loud at this!

    Ironically enough I just got my bottle today from a trade. Glorious comes to mind. What a frag! Give it some time. My first sample I too was lukewarm to it, but, now I find it incredible.

    I'm sure you will not have any trouble finding a buyer here. I have a couple bottles already otherwise I would take it off your hands. If you aren't strapped for cash though I say hold on to it for a couple more weeks and revisit it here and there.

    Unless you really need the money, why not just hang onto it for a bit? Put it away and try it again every so often. One thing I found out after a while being into perfume is that your taste will develop and change. There are perfumes I disliked intensely when I first tried them, and then found myself searching for a year later. And there's at least one bottle that I bought, loved, changed my mind about, sold, and then bought again. Don't rush to a decision if you can avoid it.

    At least keep a 5 ml decant for yourself if you decide to sell or swap it.

    LIDGE is an incredible fragrance..but...it takes some learning in my experience. don't sell it! My advice would be to go light on the trigger and revisit this in a week or two. This one changes as you wear it and over spraying does not make it better. Hang on to it and you will learn to love it. I can almost promise that.

    You will be shocked at how much you taste will change in a couple of months. Its going to hard to find again if you get rid of it.

    Awesome fragrance I would hold onto it for a while and use it some more until you are really sure its not for you.

    I've had this for a couple months and don't quite get it. It doesn't seem to change a lot on me. I smelled regular Instant Homme at Bergdorf a couple weeks ago and thought that was much more interesting.

    I love this juice and this is what I get from it.

    This is one of the few very best fragrances that I have ever smelled and it is simply awesome!

    It opens with a warm freshness of citrus and coco which the coco becomes more pronounced. For the first hour or so you get florals and woods pushing through the coco which is the dominant note and is gorgeous.

    Then as the florals recede you notice the woods more behind the coco then drydown is just the heavenly coco and it has to be experienced. After many hours the basenotes come into play which is a vanille musk and that stays as a skin scent for a long time.

    I get a amazing twelve hours longevity and any clothing your wearing is going to retain this scent even when I woke up the next day I could still smell its basenotes.

    To sum up its complex and smells sensual and classy and lasts for ages. I will never be without this fragrance in my wardrobe as its just stunning.

    I still like this scent, but I do not wear it much. I have to be in the mood for it before I will put it on.
    Five that I am enjoying right now

    1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
    4) Devin by Aramis
    5) Coromandel by Chanel

    Love at first wear for me. It is truly one of my all time favorite fragrances.

    Thanks--that's exactly what I was looking for. I'm not a huge fan of cocoa notes, which is probably why I've had some difficulty with it. But I'm going to give it a good wearing tomorrow and try to focus on the other aspects you describe. I don't think the cocoa is a dealbreaker if everything else is interesting to me.

    Update: I couldn't wait and sprayed some on my inner elbow at work. Already liking it more!

    I say keep it awhile. I loved it from the get go, but I loved it even more after a few wears over a couple of months time. No harm giving it 4 or 5 wears, and if you still don't like it, then you will be absolutely certain of it, and sell it at that point. Me, personally, I think it is one of the top all time frags around, but it is a bit sweet (although there are much, MUCH sweeter frags out there).

    The first few wears all I could focus on was the cocoa. As time progressed and I wore it a few more days, I began to smell the entire composition, not just notes here and there. For me, the citrus has a brief appearance but a delicious one, then this gets right down to a dirty but classy, woody, bitter cocoa masculine masterpiece.

    It's one of those frags where I noticed if I just sit back and relax or just go about my business, I enjoy the whole experience it has to offer and not just the note make-up and picking out what I can or can't find.

    Yes, I think getting past the cocoa and into the other notes is the trick. BTW, we have a mini-meetup tonight if you're interested in smelling some weird stuff.
