    Default Le Male, La Nuit, or London?

    I'm 19 years old and new to the community and have decided to buy one of the three fragrances above but am indecisive as to which one I should go with.

    I really like the dry down and projection of Le Male but the opening of La Nuit. I don't own a lot of fragrances and would like to buy one that would be a good investment for the money.

    If you guys would like to shoot me another suggestion, please feel free to do so, thanks.

    All three are very good fragrance, around the same quality.

    La Nuit is more versatile, classier and less common for people your age.

    Of the three, London is probably the weakest link.

    Personally, of the three, I like and wear Le Male the most.

    x2. This is my experience as well. There will be lots of London lovers and Le Male/La Nuit haters who will take issue though.

    I think all three are solid choices. I have them all and like them all.

    London doesn't last long at all (for me and most others), and everybody + their brother has Le Male.

    I vote La Nuit. Lasts 8-10 hours for me and it's hard for people to dislike it.
    1) Chergui (Serge Lutens)
    2) Dior Homme Intense
    3) Aventus (Creed)
    4) Allure Homme Sport (Chanel)
    5) La Nuit De l'Homme (YSL)

    Le Male, it's popular for a reason, most people who dislike it are only disliking it because of how popular and used it is, I have all three of the listed and if I had to choose one it would be Le Male with La Nuit a very close second.

    La Nuit >> Sexy and simple. I prefer Burberry Brit over London though.

    For your age group, Le Male would probably work best. But you wouldn't be going wrong if you decided to go with La Nuit. Try Armani Code as well.

    Thank you all, appreciate the feedback. I'm surprised so many of you own all three of them

    If I had to choose one it would be London (with La Nuit close second). London doesn't last long, 4-5h for me.

    This is a good break down of the three.

    I love Le Male and wear it often. Nuit is okay. London is something I rarely wear.

    Keep in mind that the opening of any fragrance can last 5 minutes to half an hour, but the dry down can last 6+ hours. What you like about Nuit doesn't last as long as what you like about Le Male.

    You can get samples of all three of these at Nordstrom. Wear them all and then pick which one fits your skin and personality the best.

    La nuit is top choice IMO

    I prefer London of the 3, but the other 2 are more likely to be crowd pleasers.

    I think London smells the best, but the longevity would probably put it a little below the others for a daily scent.

    For a work scent, I'd probably go with La Nuit. I think if it was just a party/dinner or something, I'd go with London.

    My order:
    La Nuit > Le Male > London

    Default Re: Le Male, La Nuit, or London?

    London has the best smell hands down . I just wore it today , wonderful scent . I personally am ok with it's longevity , I get 5-6h which is enough for me .

    About La Nuit , I still have to try this a couple of times to decide if I like it or not . For now this is my least favorite of the three .

    I haven't tried Le Male in the last years , heard they reformulated it and many guys are disappointed with the result , but I find myself liking the Le Male Terrible . Monster longevity and projection with this one , very sexy and provocative .

    Also if you like London and La Nuit but can't decide which one to get , try CK One Shock - imo it's a mix of the aforementioned.

    Overall : London > Le Male > La Nuit .

    La Nuit all day and all night, and that's just the longevity I'm talking about

    I strongly dislike two of your listed three, so London is the only one I can recommend (though it is not the most versatile of scents). Something like Terre d'Hermes would be a good all-around choice to additionally check out if you haven't already.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie

    +1. At 19, London probably isn't your best bet. Go for Le Male. The reverse is true if you are 49. imho.

    London is the only one worth owning.

    La Nuit.. best purchase I've ever made.. I'm 17 and get compliments non stop from both genders. Goes well in any season. I prefer fall because of it's spice.

    Another vote for la nuit.

    I love London, but I could only wear it for 3-4 months of the year. For that reason, I'd vote for la nuit.
