    Haven't tried any of the above except DHI so I am not in a position to cast a fair vote Now if I could get my hands on some samples of the remaining 3 I can arrive at a better judgement.

    I have vintage bottles of both of the Diors and they are good but L'Instant Extreme is great. Imo it has the better ingreidents and is more complex and the cocoa/vanille combo just brings that better satisfaction. The normal L'Instant is good by itself but a pale reflection compared to the Extreme.

    Tried them all, and my pick is L'instant de Guerlain Extreme.

    The cocoa/vanille combo is amazing.

    Easy choice. LIDGE.

    DH/DHI sickly, feminine, cloying, offensive mass market mess in a bottle with a cheap talcum powder drydown. Ghastly frag, truly ghastly.

    Default Re: Dior homme vs Dior homme intense vs L'instant de guerlain vs L'instant de guerlain extreme

    In my opinion and according to my tastes, DHI would come first and any of the Instants as a second option (would hardly bother about DH for myself, though I might reconsider strictly if I had to buy this as a present for someone else, but DH for me: no).

    Tried them all except for vintage Dior Homme. L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme is the best for me.

    Default Re: Dior homme vs Dior homme intense vs L'instant de guerlain vs L'instant de guerlain extreme

    I own DHI and have tried LIDG, but can't find LIDGE anywhere. I've been checking Strawberrynet.com a few times a day to see if it comes available. Does anyone know if they still get it in occasionally?

    Partially a lie - I was able to find a few bottles on Ebay, but they are $100+ and i'm not terribly trusting of Ebay as a source of fragrances (especially expensive ones).

    Honestly, there isn't THAT much of a difference between vintage DH or DHI to spend the extra $$ on IMO. I actually find my 2012 bottle of Dior Homme to be better than my vintage DH and reformulated DHI, haha.

    LIDGE is the hands down winner in my book.

    Which brings me to my next point... anyone in the US looking to get their hands on DHI ??

    Dior homme is best for day wear, very versatile and pleasant scent with a good longevity. DHI works for me in the night time.

    Challenging! But i will pick Dior Homme. Its really the iris that makes it so very unique to me. Extremely classy scent. Close behind will be all the other three
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I have Dior Homme Intense (Reformulated), L'Instant Extreme, L'Instant EDT, and I used to own Dior Homme (original)

    Tough call between DHI and L'Instant Extreme but in terms of sheer sexiness.....I would have to say DHI. Love the way it smells on me. Love L'Instant Extreme as well. Both have given me compliments.

    L'Instant EDT was fine....but it just smelled kind of 'old' to me....something an older person would wear. Dior Homme (original) had too much iris for my tastes.

    I have DHI, DH, and LIDGE. If I could only have 1 out of the 3, it would be Dior Homme Intense.

    I use and voted for LIDG, It is a lovely fragrance as well as LIDGE. I only wore DHI once and it reminds me of a thrown up pudding. No offense, I admit it is a very vell structured fragrance loved by masses, but I just get this association for some strange reason.
