    Default La Nuit de L'Homme- terrible?

    So I am new to fragrances, but I got about 25 different samples of different scents to try out. One of them was a small atomizer of La Nuit. Well so far I've put it on twice. Both times, the entire house smells. With one small spray. The problem is, it's bad. I see why people like it, it's creamy and spicy, but it's cloying. My mom told me blatantly that I "stink" and that this scent was her absolute least favorite. I never came close to her, she smelled it from across the room. With one spray!

    I can't be the only one who feels like this. I wanted to like it and was looking forward to trying it out. But wow it's strong.....

    It's more of a mature scent.... wait a few more years and try it again, you may appreciate it more... I think La Nuit is an awesome fragrance....

    i dont think it is terrible. It is one of my favorites. Different noses I guess. La Nuit isn't that far off of other samples you have.

    Default Re: La Nuit de L'Homme- terrible?

    I would imagine Rochas Man being more cloying than La Nuit de L'Homme to be honest. It might also be a skin reaction to something in the juice I suppose as it has happened before, but you make it sound like La Nuit is as cloying as Joop! and I just don't get that from my bottle unless I overspray heavily. I even sometimes have to spray my clothes directly when wearing La Nuit to get the scent to last for more than 4 hours as it fades from my skin faster than it does for others. Its pretty unisex as well as my girlfriend will wear it from time to time as well.

    Could also be a bad sample too I suppose as someone else mentioned.

    Yeah, it doesn't do anything for me. It is a really boring scent to my nose.
    It's pleasant enough, but doesn't do anything special so it's an easy pass for me.

    I don't get the projection that you report, but even if I did, the scent leaves me very lukewarm.

    It's better than L'Homme though.

    Default Re: La Nuit de L'Homme- terrible?

    Possibly a fake? I've gotten a few compliments from this, and i've only worn it a handful of times. Its pretty stout at first but doesn't stay that way for long, in my experience. Put it on, wait an hour or so, then solicit opinions and see if you get the same thing.

    I got it from a swap. So maybe, but I doubt it. It is way more cloying than hoop I thought. The dry down is OK, but only after 3 hours of cloying sweetness. Maybe due to my skin as well.

    Anyway I guess people are 50/50 on this.

    And, Hugo and boss bottled are different. Hugo smells like men's deodorant. Bottled is sweeter and more plesant

    I too don't particularly like La Nuit de L'Homme and L'Homme, though for different reasons. My personal favourite from YSL is Kouros, and after Jazz, M7 and Rive Gauche I don't think L'Homme or La Nuit is that good.

    Haha thanks for the input, but a lot of the scents people like on here are too old for me. I'm only 16, I want something nice, pleasing, and inoffensive. These were scents were ones that seemed to fit the bill.

    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?

    Nope, can't say I have (or if I did I do not remember it)... That said, if you like those kinds of light and fresh scents, then something like Bellago for Men by Parlux may be up your alley (it sells through Amazon and other online discounters for about $16-$20 a 100ml bottle too). That is a good one, IMO.

    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 just wanted to say that I don't believe it was fake. If anybody wants to try a fragrance, I would recommend this guy. I told him what I wanted, and he got the samples out to me within a day. They were packaged extremely well for a very good price in nice high quality atomizers. The fault wasn't yours, I just wasn't a fan of the scent!

    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!

    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?

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!
    This man does not sell fakes (although I doubt anyone was implying that :])

    OP, that's interesting. Most women LOVE la nuit. I can't see it being a cloying scent, not in the least.
    Maybe the heat had something to do with it?

    Indeed.

    I think La Nuit is among the better of the offerings from the last few years.

    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!

    Thanks gentlemen! I don't think that anyone was personally accusing me, but the possibility was brought up, and I didn't want OP (new to BN and fragrances in general) to even consider that notion. The feedback system here works wonders, but even with BNers with little or no feedback at all have proven to be overwhemingly reliable and honest people, and I want to propagate this type of environment where people can feel at ease dealing with others. Sending valuables or money to strangers online seems like a terrible idea in theory, but in practice, it works on BN. Thanks again!

    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.

    +1. I agree with this. It is just a little too loud for the office and definitely not appropriate if you're a blue collar man. The guys you work with will probably tease you, LOL.

    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.
    Top 5:
    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've worn La nuit to the office numerous times before and received a compliment, so it can work in that environment.

    Because it sells like hot cakes. They'll fake anything that sells.

    I sampled it whilst on holiday in Canada and initially liked it so bought 100ml from the duty free. Only ever used it a couple of times and sold it on eBay. Far too powdery and sweet for my liking.

    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.
