My Comments:

Guerlain – L’Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Eau Extrême is  a good designer fragrance which can be found in selective perfume stores, launched in 2005 from the house of Guerlain by the perfumer – Béatrice Piquet.

If I have to say as key word – “Manly, Masculine & The Men“

A clean fragrance bit smoky and very manly , A very good fragrance for cold weather a must try !. For summer it could be replace by the original version (non extreme, Edt. version).

Women like it, but men love it, they enjoy wearing it and smelling them around.

Opens up with a citrusy cocoa smell will last for 1 – 2 hours, then in middle note citrus vanishes but dominated by cocoa and patchouli for around 7 – 8 hours. Then finally dried down is cocoa and sandalwood up till 12 hours.  If you spray on your clothing it can last up to 24 hours. I think it is a masterpiece it will definitely gives a strong impression when someone smells it.

Citrus & Cocoa mixed with Sandalwood & cedar

If I have to say (Try or Buy) a definite Try.
