    Default L'Instant de Guerlain "pour" Homme Extreme

    Hello,

    Sorry if this sounds like I'm too anal but the "pour" for this fragrance is capitalized. The regular version (along with another fragrance I own) is not capitalized so I didn't know if this was a typo or not. I know this isn't really a bug but I didn't know where else to post the concern. Thanks!

    The Pour usually is capitalized to be best of my knowledge.

    If you have seen a lot, we need to find these and correct them. If Basenotes doesn't think it's a big deal then I won't worry about it but technically it is grammatically incorrect. Pour is the French word for "for." So when you look at "Burberry London for Men" it is lowercase because it is a preposition. I think LIDGE should be lowercase as well since the regular version is along with "F pour Homme" by Salvatore Ferragamo. Just my two cents though.

    It's Basenotes style guide to have lower case 'for', 'pour' etc - Sometimes the odd one slips through though, so I'll change it...
