Dior Homme Intense
YSL La Nuit
I know these VS Polls may get a bit old but I have never seen this particular designer head to head here on basenotes. With that said "of these two" (yes, I know they're are no doubt many better choices) IYO which is the better frag for a classy/sexy night out dancing/date scent?
Many thanks for your experienced opinions,
PS FWIW I see La Nuit is 6th on the most female complimented sticky/list above and DHI is 36th.

To me, a choice like this is no choice at all. DHI every time.
I actually bought both at the same time, as I couldn't decide myself. I pretty much choose DHI over La Nuit every time. It's just so much classier, smoother and better composed. Although I tested La Nuit many times before buying, as soon as I owned it I felt it was too sweet and harsh. It actually gives me a headache. I'm hoping it grows on me again, but for now I'm reserving it for nights clubbing or somewhere I want to get noticed.
DHI >> La Nuit
No contest- DHI hands down.
La vita è breve, la morte vien.
Wanted!!! Rectoverso Tea Tobacco by Ulric de Varens. PM Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
classy night out = dhi
date scent = la nuit
DHI - Can be worn anytime
La Nuit - Should not be worn anytime

Have and like both but I prefer Dior Homme Intense
I have both. like both. I like YSL La Nuit for dates & DHI for going out with friends or daily use
I have both. Both will make you smell good.
Voted DHI, both would have liked to vote for both, since both seem suitable for the occasion and the outfit described.
I'd like to add a few questions to this thread.
Dior Homme Intense seems to have been reformulated last year. Am I right about that? If so, do you still think DHI > La Nuit for a casual date night?
Absolutely Dior Homme Intense.
Reformulated DHI> La Nuit> Vintage DHI
La Nuit is sickening to me, DHI is pretty nice.
DHI. This isn't even debatable.
DHI by a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong shot!!!!!
DHI hands down. If you like La Nuit, be sure to track down the Le Parfum version. It's better - fuller, richer, more interesting, much more like it should have been in the first place.
Why do these get compared?
Haven't gave La Nuit or DHI a good enough wearing to know any better...
Dior Homme Intense
DHI is far better, but also less versatile. It's a special occasion thing.
La Nuit is trite, but not as bad as all that. I wear it to the office now and then. More of an everyday thing.
Dior Homme Intense....it's a La Nuit killer to me, I love La Nuit but DHI is a more perfected scent in the same category.
Can some anybody inform me why they're compared so much?
Because they're both "dark" or "intense" versions of classic fragrances?
I dislike them both, but DHI is a much better scent, IMO.
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
Now I know as the OP I asked for "your" opinion as fellow gents but I have to ask why (FWIW) La Nuit is rated higher on the "most complimeted" chart and DHI is not ranked as highly if it's the obvious better frag here on this poll? Is it that womans taste are so much more diff. than our own?
So, you might say, DHI is more likely to be appreciated by fragrance lovers where as La Nuit is more likely to be appreciated by the general public. I'd say this is reflected in DHI's somewhat limited distribution versus La Nuit which is widely available globally.
Excellent explanation, thank-you.
I'll go against the grain on this one and pick La Nuit. I just don't care for the lipstick/iris accord in Dior Homme or DHI. It's unusual and unique if that's what you're going for; I'll give you that. But as far as general appeal to the public, I'd vote for La Nuit.
Own both and i think both of them are great! But recently i am starting to prefer dhi alot more over la nuit. In fact, i m using the latter much lesser now.

DHI. I find La Nuit to be more feminine.
Hoping my DHI is in the mail today, I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
Went with La Nuit.....I have never smelled DHI.....Would Love to see this come to the States!!!
Do these two (La Nuit and DHI) really smell that similar? I haven't been able to find a place that sells DHI so I can smell it, but I want to. I kind-of like La Nuit, but it feels/smells a bit like a spiced sort of cocobutter (?) lotion on me. I don't know. I can't quite place the smell of what it reminds me of.
