Dior Homme by a mile...
Thread: YSL La Nuit vs Dior Homme
Okay so im on the verge to do the purchase, but it boils down between the two, which one would you choose if you were me? A young adult, oh and the I have Allure Homme Sports, Azzaro Chome.. getting YSL Body Kouros and Armani Code as well..
Dior Homme by a mile...
La Nuit for sure...
I don´t know where you´re from, but here in Germany we´re having a really hot summer.
Once the temperature is 25 degrees Celsius and more I personally enjoy La Nuit more than Dior Homme (a lot more actually), while the latter is the superior fragrance of those two, IMO.
I would get La Nuit now and Dior Homme in 2 or 3 months. Both are worth having.
Dior Homme is well worth owning. Not so for YSL La Nuit L'Homme.

La Nuit, Dior is nice, but a bit in the feminine side, IMO
I like L'Homme quite a bit better than La Nuit, but both are a ton better than Dior Homme. Get some samples and ask those around you. In my case, it is unanimous that every finds Dior Homme completely unwearable by a man. However, many on these forums like it. That's the beauty of the hobby I guess.
Dior Homme. It's not even close, lol.
I don't really see how this Dior could be unwearable for a man, unless of course you have some preconceived ideas of how a man should smell like. But more importantly buy it 'cuz you like it. Welcome to Basenotes.
Both fine, but pick La Nuit.
Dior Homme is more Unique of the two and to my nose, a bit more satisfying.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Dior Homme/Dior Homme Cologne
Although not the best frag for tropical weather, I'm pretty sure the sillage won't be too cloying.

do yourself a favor and SAMPLE dior homme if you are considering it. DO NOT blind buy it. to me it makes you smell like women's makeup, but i guess some people like that smell. la nuit imo is a much safer buy. it smells pleasant, pergect for any season and get compliments.
This is one of the rare times that basenoters aren't vehemently split on one side or the other. I have to agree, both are nice and relatively comparable. There is no obvious pick. I would probably go with the La Nuit De L'Homme because it is better on my skin. Your skin is a whole different thing.
Hmmm...Go with whichever one you can get cheapest and just do it. La Nuit is $1 less expensive on Fragrancenet- There's your answer.

Dior homme is more sophisticated, refined, mature and overall more parfum.Good option for formal events.
La nuit is more versatile, more fresh, more casual wear ..
I own la nuit and I enjoy it very much but , I see this one very similar drydown with Armani Code.
La Nuit, hands down... i have yet to like any Dior stuff... they don't get right with me.
Dior Homme has character and personality. La Nuit does not.

La Nuit is more safe and versatile for tropical weather. Dior homme is very good but you need to try before you buy.
For Sale or Swap: Terre D'Hermes
Tough question. I have both and have got compliment when wearing both.
I'd recommend that you get one first and another later.
Current Top 5
1. Creed Aventus
2. A*Men Pure Malt
3. L'instant Extreme
4. Nasomatto Duro
5. CDG - Kyoto
La Nuit de L'homme is full of personality and character. I own it and love it VERY much. I currently have Dior Homme in the top slot on my wish list. IMO there is room for both, but I think you should start with La Nuit de L'homme

I own both. This summer La Nuit has been worn far more.
Hot Weather: get La Nuit....Cold Weather: Dior Homme...Best for both: La Nuit
Dior Homme is a mastepiece. I would choose it. La Nuit is also worth having, but I would give Dior priority.
Dior Homme is the one you want. YSL's La Nuit, though I respect the houses' past endeavors, is shit.

While I think DH is probably more interesting, and around here (BN) that gets attention, I do feel it pushes the limits of gender borders (not everyone may be as comfortable with that as you), plus it gets pretty cloying in the heat. Overall I just think, while it's artistically more interesting, practically La Nuit is probably a much safer choice. It's interesting within mainstream but still pretty casual. Could be worn anytime and not be out of place IMO.

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
I would purchase both fragrances.....If I could only have one I would go with Dior Homme
Dior Homme is interesting, unique and sophisticated. La Nuit l'Homme is YSL's grab at some of the $$$ that Armani Code makes. No comparison in my opinion.
Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

I enjoy both but if I had to choose between the two, La Nuit without a doubt!
To be successful, you must smell successful! THATSMR2USIR
