Review of GUERLAIN L'Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum

Since 1828, GUERLAIN have produced over 1,100 different perfumes, paving the way for the future of perfume. Preserving their exceptional heritage, the Legendary fragrance collection pays tribute to their innovative history. One of the more modern additions to the line – released in 2003 – GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum is an oriental-solar that showcases a unique combination of warm aromas to light up any day.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain is a sensual combination of sparkling florals and sweet citrus honey with an underlying cosy warm base of amber. L’Instant opens with the comforting natural sweetness of citrus honey, which remains prominent as the perfume dries on the skin. Magnolia sits at the fragrance heart, adding a velvety smooth tone as sambac jasmine and ylang-ylang take the scent to a whole new level of opulence before GUERLAIN’s oriental-solar fragrance dazzles with a warm, resinous amber accord.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Fragrance has the power to transport you to a moment in time, triggering a rush of feeling as it does so. GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum encapsulates the moment where you realise anything is possible, where everything is aligned for a unique moment of change. The sunny scent illuminates you, providing a moment of optimism and serenity as everything falls into place.


You Will Love This If…

If you love warm amber scents but you’re looking for less spice, you’ll love the refreshing twist that this note is given in GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum. Exciting florals and the delectable citrus honey accord give amber a whole new lease of life.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

L’Instant smells like a warm summer evening in a private garden as you lounge around with a sweet cocktail in hand, while the jasmine and magnolia flowers around you close for the night, the beginnings of the dew bringing out one last waft of nature’s heady scent.


Is GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain Unisex?

We feel that scent choice should be based on personal preference and not gender, but certain notes have gendered stereotypes. L’Instant de Guerlain has been typically worn by women with the warm, sweet floral accords.


What’s The Longevity Like?

GUERLAIN L’Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum is remarkably long-lasting. In particular, the citrus honey and amber facets linger on the skin for hours on end, while the floral tone lessens throughout the day.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

A unique soft orange colour, L’Instant de Guerlain is housed in the glamorous ‘inverted heart’ GUERLAIN glass flacon, designed by Raymond Guerlain. Inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, the bottle features graceful scroll detailing to accentuate the hollow heart stopper.
