    One of my favorites! Only needs one good spray to the chest to last most of the day, and the drydown has such a natural, beautiful cocoa. Not too sweet, but just sweet enough. One of my wife and I's favorite drydowns ever! I'll agree that it's not extremely versatile, however, as I couldn't bring myself to wear this unless it's cold outside. Is it a masterpiece, or worthy of being considered one of the "greats"? That's a pretty subjective term, I suppose, but in my experience and opinion, it definitely deserves that consideration and I believe it is.

    I would certainly come in my top best. But surely wouldn't beat the top 5.

    Same. I think it's above average but I guess I was expecting so much more from the hype it was getting around here.

    I feel somewhat acronymistic towards this scent.

    I hate to say this with so much fanatic love behind it, but it is a cloying fragrance. The day I wore this I could not wait to go home and change out of my work attire.

    Agree. Made with quality ingredients but cloying and syrupy on me. Just like New Haarlem.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    That's impressive. You don't get much higher ratio of good to bad than that. Maybe there is something to this juice.
    Yeah, it's called hype. It is a very good fragrance but I am not sure it cracks the top ten that Guerlain has to offer.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    It becomes an anise bomb when sprayed on clothing. Made this mistake once and couldn't wait to go home and take off my shirt.

    Best thing about LIDGE is that its PERFECTLY BALANCED.
    Just right amound of sweet, woody and floral (to make it different and sophisticated) notes with good projection and above average longevity.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Creed Millesime Imperial
    3. Lalique Encre Noire


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Eau Des Baux
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    Absolutely, this is the same for me and couldnt agree more, plus its one of the 1st to irritate my nose in while, it seemed pretty sharp.

    Seen as i've found this particular scent almost impossible to find anywhere to sample it I blind bought a bottle from strawberrynet last night, wasn't a bad deal with their 10% off sale at the moment. Got an email saying it's shipped already so i'm looking forward to trying it out in a week or so and comparing it to my DHI

    Fubar - did you get the Extreme version, or regular L'Instant de Guerlain?

    I ask as LIDG is always on StrawberryNet to buy, but LIDGE only pops up in very limited quantities once every so often.

    Just because 53 liked it and 2 didn't.

    SAMPLE FIRST, you might be number 3 on the didn't list.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    I got LIDGE. I went on there last night after hearing they had 10% all fragrances and as it was something I was keen on trying I always look to see if they have it in stock, I think I got the second last or last bottle because after placing my order it was gone again not long after. This from the conformation email

    Guerlain: - L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme Eau De Parfum Spray 75ml/2.5oz 1

    I would have liked to sample it but haven't been able to find it anywhere and given the price I paid I'm not too concerned. If I don't like it i'm sure i'd be able to get rid of it, but it seems right up my alley so I doubt it will be going anywhere once I get my hands on it

    Oh good man - glad you scored a bottle.

    It is very good juice, I doubt you'll be disappointed, especially once the mercury starts to drop.

    I got a sample of this, for some reason, it doesn't last on me, became a skin scent w in 2 hours. I'm not sure if I got a bad sample or not

    Excellent scent. Long lasting, and unique. It's worth every penny at retail.

    However, i don't think its worth the price some are willing to pay for it.
