Thread: La Nuit de L'Homme- terrible?
Those three are good, although not my favorites (I love London, but that'll be one I get later). I thought blue seduction was better then cool water personally though. Have you tried it?

A bit too spicy and sweet for constant wear. When I first got into fragrances I tried hard to like this more than lhomme based on BN hype, but it's just not for me
It is horrible stuff, all three versions. I dont understand what all the fuss is about. Same goes for Spicebomb.
Chemical. Synthetic. Bland. Drugstore.

RARE PERFUME DECANTS - FACEBOOK (closed group) - Hundreds of ultra rare extraits available, including Djedi and Nombre Noir.
Just for clarification, I was the one who sent OP his samples of The One and La Nuit. I can give you my word that neither fragrance is fake. I've dealt with a quite a few BNers, and have had nothing but positive experiences- whether or not I cared for the actual fragrances. I wanted to chime in here, as I don't want new members (or anyone here, really) to think that it's common to receive fakes from others on BN. And also so that OP doesn't think I tried to hoodwink him on a few mls of a common fragrance. I don't think La Nuit is terrible, but it certainly can be cloying to some, and cardamom is pretty polarizing, no matter the fragrance. Sucks that you don't like it, OP, but at least you know what the fragrance is, and I personally would recommend either hanging on to it to re-visit at a later time (you may be surprised how quickly your tastes evolve as you learn new frags), or if you are adamant that it's just not for you, to pass it on to someone else. For as many people that can't stand this one, there are tons more that love it. Glad you like The One- it seems to be very popular with the ladies (when they can detect it- sillage is a little weak). Maybe next time you'll find a great one for you!
I'll probably hold onto it, maybe let a friend try it at some point. I think they drydown is good, the opening to just too strong for me. I like The One (Nice and spicy), and found the sillage to be ok on me. I like scents that stay somewhat close to me, I don't want people across the room smelling it. So perfect.
Anyway, thanks again!
I think La Nuit is pimp juice, with universal acclaim from those around me
La Nuit is the best from your whole list.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
la nuit is a night scent and not best suited for work imo. i like it
Welcome to BN!
Perhaps you just don't like "powdery" fragrances? What is your opinion of Armani Code? (if you've tried it)
I live in a blue collar/steel mill type area, although that industry is dying here but the mentality is still around. So when I show a customer La Nuit or Code they sometimes recoil from the powdery quality of these since they may perceive them as feminine.
I too like La Nuit a lot and wish I could get a ton of projection like you got from the sample. Don't forget that initial reactions can be really deceiving. I think all of us here have made a 180 on at least a few frags over the years and it's important to try a new frag a few times before you get a real opinion of it. For example, I had a co worker talking trash on Aramis one day and a few days later I knew she was coming in to relieve me so I put on Aramis well before she came and had her smell my arm. She was like "Ohhh that smells nice! what is that?" She couldn't believe it.
Out of all of those I would think the most cloying would be the One Million. With this one I have to spray the air and pull the card thru the "cloud" before showing it.
I have tried the Seductive Blue and find it interesting and nice, but haven't got much longevity out of it, but I've only wore it 3 times so I have another 2 or 3 times before I really figure it out.
Only the Brave is a nice frag and great for you to wear, so it's good that you seem to have found a winner What else have you worn in the past that you really like?
-Cologne is the only fashionable thing that fits me! (Me, circa 1997-present)
I have a friend who wears La Nuit, and it smells incredible on him. Not sweet at all, or synthetic, or too anything. Then I tried it and it smelled totally different on me. Seriously, it was from the same bottle but it was like 2 different scents. I used to think the 'skin chemistry' thing was a bunch of BS but I kind of wonder now.....
You want something that's cloyingly sweet, give Bond No. 9 Washington Square a try. La Nuit, not so much. At least for me
I can see why it's popular and it has some appealing elements, but it is far too sweet and cloying for me. Others seemed to think it was a bit generic too.
Seems like you have a pattern going on...
I'm young as well, but I enjoy La Nuit De L'Homme EDT and One Million. The former was my first signature scent... I love it.
The trick is to be light on the trigger so it's subtle. Sometimes you can't smell it, but it's there! You might have over-sprayed.
As for the latter (One Million) - I like it, but I don't love it. But it garners compliments much more than La Nuit.
1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
3) Royal Oud by Creed
4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel
I liked Nuit first time I smelled it quite a while ago..smelled it again, way too sweet, don't like it anymore.
La Nuit de l'Homme is an excellent fragrance produced by a quality house: YSL.
Surprised by your reaction and that of your parents.
I don't care for it either and I like gourmands. To me this is a cookie cutter vanilla and nothing more.
I prefer the original L'Homme over La Nuit, which does nothing on my skin despite its hyped strength. It smells good from the bottle, but that's about it.
it's not a bad scent by any means, but on me, it's way too strong, sweet & cloying, even with one spray, for some reason. Definitely a nice & sexy frag if it works on your skin, though.
The moral of this story is there are different strokes for different folks.
