    It is decent IMO and not worth the endless praise it is given. I actually find that the edt projects way better even though the chocolate milk drydown of the edp is amazing.

    I used to think this doesn't last on me, and the first time I used Extreme using my spray sample from Surrender to Chance, I got turned off. I usually do 3-5 sprays with my frags, but after understanding this deeper, I realized I only need 1.5 sprays... two, if I want it to project even more.

    I find L'Instant Extreme potent with outstanding longevity, and truly excellent projection. The scent is really nice, and I think it is worth owning a bottle. Like I previously posted, do not spray your neck as it is so strong. The chest area, IMO is perfect, even under the shirt layered with a sweater.

    I have a hard time smelling LIDGE on my skin after 3-4 hours. Anyone else think LIDGE smells similar to root beer?

    Maybe slightly as far as the root beer is concerned. I get a classier version of the original obsession for men. As for longevity on my skin, I get 12 hours on most days@ 2 sprays max for me. Love this scent. So glad I picked up a full bottle of this after having a sample of this. This is one of my most complimented scents. I even pull this one off in the summer with only one spray. Not too heavy at all being in the mid west here. This one will always be in my collection and I am trying to hunt down another bottle of this, as it is getting very difficult to find. Can't even begin to imagine what a reformulated version of this one would be like, IF it ever comes down to that

    Good projection and 12+ hours longevity. Sprayed on the chest it manages to scent my shirt and sweater even though I wear an undershirt and let it dry before putting my clothes on. Actually, I wouldn't mind it being a little less potent

    Does anyone know if the 3Y01 (Nov. 2013) version of LIDGE is worth owning or has it been reformulated too much?
