Absolutely Stunning!
Even though I was already in love with the EDT, the first time I tried this EDP version I was stunned! It was a decant from a 'new' bottle. Absolutely warm and beautifully sweet with a hint of citrus, cocao, and anise. Truly glorious interpretation for a flanker. As soon as I finished my 10ml... Read more

A must!
L’Instant pour Homme by Guerlain is one of my favourite fragrances ever, and together with Dior Homme and a very limited few others, surely well represents the highest peak of recent contemporary perfumery for me (any perfumery, niche included). That kind of perfection which would make any... Read more

Instant boredom
Call me philistine but I don't get this. It smells predominantly of cocoa and I don't understand why I would want to smell of a sweet powdery foodstuff. In the development of the human palate, taste starts with easy - the sweet tooth of a child, and graduates to an adult's appreciation of the... Read more

Dreamy cocoa-covered sandalwood...
This fragrance is deep, it's rich, and it's intoxicating. I can't stop smelling my wrist when I try it out! I get the resins, anise and hibiscus, and jasmine and patchoulli... followed by a strong base of rich, dark bitter cacao. It's wonderful to smell, very addictive! I'm a huge Guerlain fan... Read more

Sweet as Candy
One of the best perfume I ever had... You open the bottle and feel the aroma of Cocoa is been filled with a slight Citrus smell. Once you apply initial 10-15 seconds you feel surrounded by a strong aroma which is a mix of Cocoa and Tea... After few hours you can feel the confidence of the... Read more

Cacao Masterpiece
What a almost gourmand-ish Parfum. A rich, tasty cocoa-based fragrance for the man with age and style, Guerlain has created a crowd-pleaser that begs compliments. Best for winter or a cool night outside in the snow, this contemporary scent is powerful and strong despite a combination of “light”... Read more

Aroma therapy
This is like aromatherapy for me... I can´t get enough of its gorgeous aroma. Just have to spray my pillow every now and then before getting to bed. Dark, spicy, sweet chocolate. I love it. My bottle will last a while because i don´t wear it outdoors. My secret little treasure...;)

More Cacao - Less Sillage
L'instant EDT is a winner for me. I find the EDP to be not only softer, but closer to the skin. The Eau de Toilette concentration seems to be the bigger gun, giving off more projection and also allowing the fragrance to breathe more clearly. I feel the Parfum closes off a lot of the notes and... Read more

Yummy spicy cocoa
This treasure is part of my collection of late (edit: original comment from 2.9.2011). I had tested the EdT various times (in summer) - it is much easier to find in ordinary perfumeries. It was somehow very nice, but it seemed to lack some harmony. i suppose that the combination citrus + cocoa does... Read more

Class & distinction in a bottle
I own the EDP & have tested the EDT! I much prefer the EDP! & here is why. The EDT is a nice offering from Guerlain which opens with a nice citrus burst, a tad of cocoa & woods. In the EDT version the citrus is the more dominant player. While it is nice, it does not last very long for... Read more

House of pralines
In Duesseldorf – one of the nicest cities in Germany – was a little shop called “Haus der Praline” (house of pralines). They offered belgian pralines in different kinds. Some of them was made of bright or dark or white chocolate. The stuffing was with chocolate-, nougat-, fruit- or... Read more

Wearing today "eau extreme" from 2007. Citrus, anise in a balsamic elemi, evolves into a mild sweet cocoa (not powdry) anise mix. NICE!¡¡¡¡+2
