    I like the scent but a little too common for me. Kinda boring.

    Last year La Nuit de L'Homme was one of my most worn fall/winter evening scents. This year I think I used it once. Glad I didn't buy a 100ml bottle. I wanted to believe the hype last year but it is a very sweet generic smelling fragrance with no depth at all. I got some compliments when wearing it but no more or less than I did while wearing Pure Malt or Burberry London.

    I won't speak for Pluran, but I have experience with both, and:

    La Nuit: this was a dramatically animalic fragrance, probably with Jicky parfum, Ungaro II, and My Sin parfum the most animalic I've run across in a mainstream scent ( all discontinued bar Jicky: no surprise ). It was a rich, creamy, smooth floral-leather that felt polished, fierce, and adrogynous. Anyone can wear this, but I feel it appeals more towards the seekers of the bold and unusual.

    La Nuit de l'Homme: a soft, kind of bland woody scent. Inoffensive, yet, nothing really stands out about it at all.

    The days of Paco Rabanne releasing something really daring and head-turning seem to be over.

    La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent - One is initially exposed to the flowery orange of bergamot accompanied by the dusty cinnamon of cardamom. Attracted by faint lavender, this inviting couple shuffles to the waiting middle. The minty, herbal lavender with its inherent vanilla and the sharp conifer of the virginia cedar subsume the feeble opening, and concoct a powdery, smoky woodiness, with vaulting sweetness, as it flows to the expectant base. Here, at the simmering base, the green and earthy vetiver combines with the hefty vanilla and pine of coumarin, as well as a touch of anise from caraway, to form a saccharine drydown. Teetering on the feminine side, this humdrum composition is a fall/winter scent, and has average projection and good longevity.

    Bought it and l'm a fan. Sometimes I think whenever something gets a little too popular too quick, there is a backlash. "Synthetic", "boring", ect. Great cologne, especially for the price. Sure its a little sweet in the opening, but I love the drydown.

    Don't have much experience w/ this one but it is one of the best drydowns i have ever smelt on a tester strip. I plan to own it soon.
