    Re: Help me pick a night out fragrance

    I haven't sampled it, but I would suspect an ultra-sweet fragrance (New Haarlem) would become annoying and choke you and others out in hot/humid weather. I'd check out DHI, Rue 21 Metro Black, and...
  2. Re: Is there any cologne that smells a lot like La Nuit YSL?

    DHI's drydown is a little similar, but stronger. The openings are nothing alike. An unsolicited female opinion said they both smell like a very fresh, good baby powder.
