    I think Opium PH is probably the best. If you want safe, go for La Nuit. But you might find you are not the only one wearing it...

    Everyone will be wearing La Nuit. They did name it La NUIT...

    Go for M7 or Opium PH EDP.

    M7 for sure.

    With the actual version of M7 (squarish bottle Oud Absolu), you'll have to overspray if you are out and if you want to be noticed.
    I use about 10 sprays to the office... And people tell me I smell nice, but that the scent is weak.

    Opium Pour Homme IMO.

    a close fight between Opium pour homme edp and M7.

    Opium PH edt and edp for me.

    Body Kouros is good but doesn't perform well enough to compete in a crowd or really draw people in, so save that for another time. Opium and M7 are both very well-made and alluring scents I could smell all day (night).

    As far as a safe scent goes, I'd say BK is somewhat safe if you already know sweeter scents are your 'thing'. It does have a minty-eucalyptus opening so that might deter you from wearing this.

    Definitely la nuit! There is a reason it's so popular, it just smells DAMN good! Now there are better night out fragrances than YSL. If u want a YSL then go for it but look at other options u might like them more!

    M7, M7 Fresh, Kouros Fraicheur.

    On a side note, I tried La Nuit today and it was sickeningly sweet and annoying.

    I agree. I can't even get why it's such a crowd pleaser actually. I tried it for the 3rd time in a perfumery today and each time I whiffed it I liked it a little less. It just smells like candies to me, and not in a good way. If you're going to wear something edible, make it a gourmand, not Wonka.

    La Nuit is the only safe bet.

    Otherwise Opium pH, M7 or Jazz. It's important to give Opium and Jazz an hour or so before you leave though because their opening is a bit harsh/bright for the evening.

    To be fair, taking your top off and being in a gay club probably didn't help you

    M7, but it better be the original one with the amber glass. The original has amazing sillage and hideous longevity, and it smells soooooooooooo good. The other versions are cheap frauds.

    Kouros is also lovely on many individuals (but not all). La Nuit is alright. Rive Gauche is beautiful but not a fun night out scent at all.

    La Nuit because it's amazing. Simple.

    Default Re: Best Yves Saint Laurent for "night out"?

    Depending on your age, and the occasion, in order of 'safety' -

    1) La Nuite (easy to wear crowd pleaser (read girl love it))
    2) M7 (if vintage apply at least an hour before going out)
    3) Opium PH.

    I have La Nuit Parfum and Opium EdP because I prefer them to their respective EdT counterparts. Overall they are less 'shouty' in the opening and tend to sit a little closer to the skin in dry down AND have a more masculine 'vibe' to them. In my view these are 'quietly confident mature masculine' traits which suit me 'cos I'm (just) over 50

    Maybe just preference? I'd go EDT because it dries down to a warmer vanilla with toned down spices whereas the EDP keeps more a balanced spiciness to compliment.
