Neroli, patchouli flower, Indian jasmine and Lapsang tea are the heart of the composition, laid on the base of cedar, Mysore sandalwood, cocoa, patchouli and hibiscus seed. [email protected] below - No friend, i am VERY sorry but you are wrong!
The EDP L'instant (dark brown cap, clear art deco flask) is TOTALLY different from the L'instant de guerlain eau extreme (dark brown cap, smoked glass art deco bottle). It is also super oily in concentration (even though it is an EDP) and one spray on my arm, the oil stays on my arm for upwards of two hours before it starts getting eaten-up by my dry-as-a-desert skin.
2 hours in a little powder and wood make an appearance. I expected great things from this one, given how hyped up it was and still is. I also don't care how many other people like this, or what pedestal they put this on. It's bitter, smells off, and reminds me of oranges going bad. It's as if every note in this juice is screaming at you all at the same time. As if you mixed all the colours of playdough together and got a brown ball of "everything". Some say it's a love it or hate it thing, and compare it to Amen by Mugler. Younger guys can probably pull this off, but they probably would seem kind of odd wearing it, like it doesn't belong on them. Longevity: 6/10 Silage: 5/10 Projection: 2/10 Personal Appreciation: Ultra Zest from the grave/10 I wrote my first review of the "reform" version of LIDGE in December 2016. you know, the older I get, as the days go by, I start to realize how certain scents are in fact made for "Mature" and "Battle hardened" men.
As LIDGE moves into drydown, the individual notes merge into a beautifully orchestrated symphony, each note supporting and amplifying its fellow note. To my nose, LIDGE is a very complex, classy, refined, quality, elegant and mature scent. Where you fall on that scale will depend on your age and the place you currently are in your fragrance journey. I know that this scent is somewhat of a legend in the community. Kinda like if a guy in his 40s was wearing Abercrombie's Fierce or something. I ended up getting upset as I thought this frag was now a joke compared to the black rimmed version. Beatrice knew DAMN well what she was doing when she made this, and even if perhaps thierry had a touch in the reform version, i can tell you without a shadow of a doubt this MASTERPIECE was made with that mature, well versed, classy, confident and attractive man in mind.
Here is my take on it: if you are in your twenties don't hesitate to wear this fragrance; it will simply show you are ahead of the curve and you appreciate the finer things in life.
This fragrance is either a love at first sniff or it grows on you...slowly.On all fronts this gets: 10/10 I finally got to try it (and the black-rimmed version too)! The first time I tried this scent, several years back, I was with my daughter and a woman I as dating at that time. I was just starting down the path of my fragrance obsession so they were not surprised when I took us off course to a small perfume shop on Disney property. The pronouncement of Anis's note in a blatant and aggressive manner, while exaggerating the sprinkles, his departure from a synaesthetic moment will become an obligatory ordeal which can not be avoided. All that said, I strongly discourage blind buys of this one unless you absolutely cannot find it anywhere.Surprisingly, as a dark chocolate fan, I found this to be a fresh patchouli-driven scent with noticable (but light) anise & supple powderiness (not exactly "cocoa"), not overly masculine, and yes, a classic; however, it doesn't strike me as that interesting, and whoever started comparing this to Dior Homme (a completely unrelated iris-centric scent) needs to stop the abominable trend—The truth is, neither is chocolatey! For me this is more the thinker, the traveller and spiritual kind of guy type of fragrance. I had read reviews of LIDGE, but had not tried it at that point. In this one I do not feel greenish chords at the exit, however, I feel a resinous nuance of Elemi that brings me to the fresh clay, something slightly sweet and dusty. The opening is such that it may not be worth the wait for you. I have this lingering suspicion that it will grow on me, or that smelling it up close is not the way to appreciate it.the scent is more on the mature side but i absolutely LOVE it!The dark cap, clear flask EDP version is sweeter, more leathery on the dry down and lasts half the time the other version does.
