The story of L'Instant is that of a celebration of unique and moving moments of emotion. These instants are both fragile and marvellous, seemingly suspended somewhere outside of time in a place where one moment can change everything and anything becomes possible. L’Instant de Guerlain pour Homme highlights the moment when a man takes the initiative of this unique moment, after which everything will be different.
This woody, sparkling, seductive fragrance was composed of contrasts. It is nothing less than surprising.
Its bottle is cut from a luxurious and transparent block of glass. Crowned with a flat stopper, sculpted like a cabochon and engraved with the Guerlain logo, its shapes play with the contrast between the rectangle and curves.
Gourmand, warm, fresh.
There are no languid half-measures about the composition of this Eau Extrême. The fresh notes of citrus and star anise, embellished by floral notes, embrace the light before melting into a deeply sensual and gourmand woody accord of patchouli and cocoa.
With L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme, the Guerlain Perfumer takes a first step towards freshness in 2004, showcasing a hot and cold olfactory contrast. The fresh top notes are inspired by an oriental aniseed drink called arak. The base notes feature the gourmand notes of the dessert by a famous pastry-maker, worked around chocolate and patchouli.
