    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.

    Default YSL La Nuit vs Dior Homme

    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.

    +1 what these gents said.

    Actually, I slightly prefer Dior Homme Cologne over the original. If you are able to sample it before your purchase decision, it might be worth the while.

    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.

    I think everyone has their own ideas of what smells masculine or feminine. However, since every single person that I have ever asked to smell Dior Homme says that it smells like an old lady...... well I guess that people have a preconceived idea of what an "old lady" smells like..... and I don't particularly want to have that title. For me, the very first time I smelled it, I instantly had a flashback to a horrible smell that stuck with me for a couple years. I was on a trip to Israel doing some documentary filming and we had several encounters with older, homeless women selling stuff like herbs and vegetables outside of the city wall. These women smelled like major body odor masked by tons of perfume oils. The tour guide explained that the women would bath in "precious oils" to make up for never actually bathing. Dior Homme always flashes me back to that smell. Some people also say that it smells like womens makeup and that is also a dead hit on accuracy. Like I said, to each their own and that's what makes this so enjoyable and unique of a hobby.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    I don't think he was saying they're the same sort of smell, but rather that they would appeal to the same customer, or be used for the same sort of purpose (evening, sexy masculine), or something like that.
