    Default Re: YSL: La nuit de L'homme vs L'homme.

    I own La Nuit. I don't own L'Homme. I really like La Nuit every time I wear it, it just seems to slip behind others on my internal "to wear" list. Although I do like L'Homme, I've never quite been able to go ahead and buy a full bottle.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I like them both. I tend to wear l'homme during the day and La Nuit during the night. I get many more compliments when wearing la Nuiti de L'Homme.

    Interesting, a strong +1 to a what you said.

    I own only La Nuit and have tried L'Homme and actually have another sample right now. L'Homme has a nice ginger note splashed with citrus in the opening. Other spices and a clean vetiver base with cedar and just a touch of tonka bean for warmth make up the majority of the scent. The violet leaf is nice and not overdone in the heart along with the green basil. To me, this is a very nice and well-made contemporary scent - but I have never bought it. It is good, but not "special". I would have no problem wearing it, and have enjoyed sample wearings, but buying a full bottle alludes me as well. Very ironic.

    La Nuit de l'Homme, on the other hand, is a study in the use of brilliant cardamom, bergamot, lavender, cedar, vetiver and earthy caraway. It is rather stunning and has something special. It took one spray on one occasion to make a full-bottle purchase! It has rich aromatics, a sensual vibe and overtones from the notes that create beautiful accords. Every time I wear it - it feels truly wonderful and has that "special" feeling. Compliments like crazy!

    Both are good compositions - the question is which one (or are both) suitable for you...and full-bottle worthy? 15 years ago, L'Homme would've been in my rotation, but my tastes have changed. La Nuit would've been as well, then - and is definitely today. Excellent fragrance.

    Cheers.

    I own both fragrances. I find l'homme to be a safe scent although it has a nice ginger/citrusy opening. But that is so common with other fragrances today. La Nuit de L'Homme on the other hand, is an experience. It is so well blended. Soft, sensuous yet masculine. It almost signals a sense of vulnerability smothered in its sensuality. I truly adore this YSL masterpiece. I have both the edt and edp versions. I tend to layer the edt over the edp. It is a real compliment getter.

    I've been debating on buying one of these. I've tried and liked L'homme, but never enough to buy a full bottle. La Nuit I just didn't care for, but I was looking at buying either the new frozen version which is supposed to be a summer version of La Nuit. Has anyone tried the frozen version? I was also looking into Libre or gingembre cologne. Any thoughts on these?

    I own both and la nuit is miles better imo.

    la nuit is way more unique and gets way more compliments.

    problem for me is bothe are becoming sort of mainstream but go with la nuit for sure

    Very, very well said, my friend. L'Homme is "safe" - but, nicely composed. Not bad at all, but not "special"...as I said.

    Your eloquent description of La Nuit de l'Homme is very thought-provoking and well-articulated. I have to agree - with admiration. For me, it is a transcendent composition that creates imagery. Truly a wonderful scent for the night.

    And, finally, I agree. It is the only contemporary bottle by YSL that I will purchase. I am looking forward to getting the EdP - which I believe would layer nicely with the EdT.

    Wonderful post!

    Cheers.

    L'homme for me in my current scent collection which is a tab bit limited to some peoples is probably the ultimate day/work scent for a classy environment. I can imagine somebody wearing it with suits in both formal and informal style events.

    I'd say it's a bit too classy for 'normal' office wear. I'd rather it be for meeting and greeting banker types to be honest where you're in flashy environments closing deals. That said, my 'ultimate', 'normal' office wear scent from my collection for almost every average level graduate job is Boss Bottled.

    La nuit as mentioned is definitely a night time scent at heart. Can be worn during the day, but i think i use specific scents for specific times and situations and as mentioned, La nuit as the name implies itself, thoroughly belongs for evenings. Also not for anything other than very intimate and black tie affairs. Hence, a bit more closed but an amazing scent.

    I love them both equally and i'd love to get my hands on the 200ml EDT to go with the 200ml L'homme i picked up on offer a while back. Thinking back, i sometimes think the 200ml wasn't enough at the price it was on offer lol, but then again, even on offer at almost 50% off, it was pricey for a student. Still, 200ml lasts years long with the small amount of time i actually get to wear such scents so it's not a problem lol.

    I would reccommend that people try both out as with all scents to see how they would like to live with such scents and in some cases as seen, some just opt for one of them rather than both.

    I had amazing experience with both, and I know that it's boring to hear everyone saying BOTH are great or something like that.. but it's just the truth it's almost impossible to chose 1 over the other. I would suggest L'homme as a daily use fragrance, and as for the night, I'd go with La Nuit without a doubt.

    You have Rochas, Joop, Dior Homme Intense, this tells me a sweet fragrance doesn't bother you, I would say it's a safe. But try to go to a mall or a fragrance store near you to sample it first.

    Hey everyone, thanks for the thoughts. I own and love both, but just bought a new bottle of the original L'homme and it doesn't seem quite as potent as my previous bottles. Although I bought it at Macy's, I'm worried it's a fake.

    The spray dispenser is now much smaller, and the lid is basically plastic, much lighter, and the underside fo the cap has a black plastic insert that fills up the entire inside of the cap but for the space for the (much smaller) dispenser. By comparison the old bottle's cap was much heavier, made of metal, and with the underside of the cap a black interior circle to fit against the spray dispenser, then open space under the cap until the perimeter at the edges. (so basically a circle within in a circle, with lots of space in between).

    Both my old L'homme and Nuit bottles are the same, and this new bottle both smells different from my old L'homme and has a cap that is distinctly different from both of these. Has anyone seen this new cap? It feels much cheaper and the cologne doesn't last, so I'm worried I got a fake, but I wanted to see if anyone's seen this new, much lighter, cheaper, cap. Thanks!

    I do love L'Homme. La Nuit is too sweet for me and Libre is generic enough.

    I can't stand Joop Homme actually on the other hand Rochas Man has projection issues, I should've got New Haarlem instead.

    I love DHI, it's a perfect date scent.

    Is La Nuit similar to Joop Homme? I won't like it then
