Anyone who knows me or who watches any of my videos, knows I love fragrances. Especially, Guerlain Fragrances. They are pretty much the only fragrances that I purchase and wear. I consider myself a bit of Guerlain collector actually.
Beauty Battles are a series that I created awhile back to compare two similar products against one another and see which one comes out on top. In today’s Beauty Battle, I’m pitting Guerlains L’ Instant de Guerlain against Guerlain’s L’ Instant Magic. Although the names are very similar, that is about where the similarities end. These two fragrances couldn’t be anymore different.
Guerlain L’Instant Fragrance Notes
L’ Instant de Guerlain is a very soft floral fragrance created in 2003 by the nose Maurice Roucel. The top notes are citrus such as Mandarin and Bergamot. The heart of the fragrance includes the soft white florals of Magnolia, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. The dry down is the beautiful base notes of Vanilla and Musk.
L’ Instant Magic is more of a powdery, woodsy fragrance that was created in 2007 by Sylvaine Delacourte and Randa Hamammi. The top notes are Bergamot, the heart of the fragrance is Rose and Freesia and the final base notes are white musk.
L’Instant is hands down my favorite and dare I say, probably my favorite fragrance ever. I love the soft, powdery vanilla notes in this fragrance. Plus being the EDP version, it wears well pretty much all day long.
