    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....

    Maybe, I am young. But this feedback came from both of my parents. Maybe it's just too old for me

    I got a girl to go through the samples with me, decided on Diesel only the brave and blue seduction (a little synthetic, but nice)

    I just hear so much hype about la nuit, and it seems so strong and cloying...

    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.

    D&G the One - This one is nice- agree, maybe a bit old
    burberry london - A Masterpiece - I like it too!
    burberry brit - This one is ok - mhmm
    La Nuit - A Masterpiece
    cool water - see hugo boss
    hugo hugo boss - this one is ok, but synthestic - I thought it smelled like a locker room haha
    boss bottled #6 - Never Tried this one - On the sweeter side. My second choice to OtB
    blue seduction -- Never Tried this one - It's an aquatic. I like it more then Chrome and 360 red
    Only the brave - Never Tried this one - my first choice. It's just overall nice
    PE 360 red - I think this one smells like Aqua Di Gio - yes, but it smells like orange cleaner. Blue seduction is a bit like this but better
    Azarro Chrome - This one gives me a headache
    le male (just as bad to me as La Nuit) - I'm surprise you don't like this one.... - It is kinda like...plasticy vanilla. Gave me a headache
    Eternity CK - Too old school for me
    1 million - This one is ok, but I find it kind of cloying
    Rochas man - I like this one, but I like the stronger brother New Haarlem better...it's much more richer

    Ya thanks for the input. I tried them all out, and that's what I found. obviously different for different tastes and skins...

    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.

    For me, it's too synthetically sweet and cloying.

    Had to sell this off...too much cardamom for me. Started smelling like BO after awhile on my skin.

    Same thing for me, hated and sold off.

    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.

    Change girlfriends and put the Nuit on just after you leave the house.

    You are not. I too dislike YSL L'Homme and La Nuit de L'Homme... Unfortunately after seeing your list, only a couple would merit a recommendation by me... Burberry London, Rochas Man and Cool Water are the only ones I can recommend. I suggest you get a different set of samples. ;-)

    La Nuit is a current fave of mine. I'm 45 and my wife and my 16 year old son both like it a lot. It is different, though, and not the standard aquatic dreck.

    Isn't Hugo the canteen bottle? #6 is the same as Boss Bottled and Boss Silver, I believe.

    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.
