    Default Age group for L'instant de Guerlain pour homme extreme

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering. What do you think is the age group for L'instant de Guerlain pour homme extreme? Is it ok to wear it as a 18-year-old student or is it a more mature scent?

    I love this scent and wear it as often as I can. But I must be honest, their is something about L.I.D.G.E that in my opinion, makes it better suited for a man 25 and over. It has a mature scent vibe to it. But you don't have to take my word for it. Try it and try it again. I am all for young guys trying out and wearing all types of scents but their are scents which are more suited towards a more mature audience, ie. Bois du Portugal. Of course, if you are comfortable with LIDGE, the rock on. More power to you.

    Thanks for the comments guys! Actually I don't have a chance to try this one out so it will be a blind buy if I want to get it. I guess I'll come back to this one in a few years

    Any suggestions for a nice winter fragrance with reasonable pricing for my age (18)?

    Any age group and especially at 18, it would be highly appropriate.

    Answering your second question, I guess Burberry London could be a good choice at an affordable price.

    +1. But as with any scent, try before you buy. Get yourself a small decant and wear it a few times before you make your decision.

    I think this one would be excellent for a youngster in making you stand out from the crowd in a good way.

    For me, it's more of a formal or business attire scent.

    Agreed.

    I find the less sprays the better actually, especially with this one.

    Spray a little on the base of your neck and watch the women come search for who "smells so good" in the room.

    I actually find the Extreme as very strong. On my skin, it is stronger than Tobacco Vanille. I'm a 3-5 sprayer, but with Extreme, one spray to the chest is enough. Two, if I want it to project more.

    Hmm you guys make me really doubt it. I was thinking between this one, Rochas man and Burberry London, totally different scents I guess..

    So on what occasions do you wear this one? Is it appropriate to wear it to class or should I go for Burberry London?

    Yes, all quite different - but great - scents IMO. Everyone has their own take, but I find Rochas man more light & "playful" out of the 3 & I like to wear it as a casual, hanging out type of scent. London makes a great daily for me, as it's projection is light, it has an underlying freshness to me throughout & it's fairly cheap - as is Rochas Man. Again, all 3 are great, so it's all about what you find suits you best.

    Perfumes have no age limits, only opinions. Beware any "experts" who claim otherwise...

    Rochas Man would be BY FAR best choice for your age. London and LIDGE are equally "mature" scents. Not strictly mature scents but there is a touch of sophistication which most people at college probably wont appreciate yet. Rochas is also rather cheap so if you wont like it (and I doubt that you wont like it) you wont loose that much money.
