    Default L'Instant De Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme Clarification

    Hi, I need some clarification on this. I think I have seen this in the shop - the glass bottle is dark chocolate at the sides and at the bottom, and looks like this :

    But what I have noticed is that neither the bottle nor the box has 'extreme' mentioned on it anywhere. The fragrance has a nice and somewhat fresh smell with lovely tones of chocolate. Is this the L'Instant Extreme or the regular version? Thanks for the help.

    Regards.

    That's the regular version. The box should look like this if it the Extreme version:

    Funny you should post this. I tried this in a store earlier today and I think I'm hooked! Need to get a bottle soon. Funny it never hit me like this before.

    I actually checked the tester in the store. It only had "Eau Extreme" written on the under side of the tester bottle.

    One thing I was going to ask, does the extreme come only in 75ml?

    Extreme = dark sides/bottom
    Regular = light sides/bottom
    Also if you saw a tester box it could not have it mentioned (mine is pure white box with a stamp)

    Despite all the hype, I have never ever tried this! Sounds great, though.

    I haven't either - yet. I really wish it was available to smell in stores. I have a sample of LIDG and would really like to smell the difference between the two.

    I bought the extreme first (blind buy). I didn't like it.
    A year later I bought the regular version after trying it in a store. I prefer the regular version, but it has given me a new appreciation and understanding of the extreme version.

    I find myself to be drawn more towards LIDGE more so than DHI over the past year.

    The Guerlain house sure does make some quality fragrances!
