    Default Nuit Pour Homme ~ Christian Lacroix ???

    Has anyone tried this ?
    The notes look interesting. Nobody has reviewed it so far.
    Also, has anyone tried the womens version ?
    Thanks.

    I only own the male version. I can thus only talk about the masculine variation.

    Thanks for posting. Can you give a brief description of it please ?
    Is it comparable to anything ?

    Thanks for asking. Maybe it's just a bias of mine, due to the similar name, but apart from name alone, I do get certain similarities with "night themed" gourmands- I know it sounds weired, but if you like La Nuit de L'Homme and CK Obsession Night, to an even lesser extent, Hugo Dark Blue, this might be the right scent.

    While only remotely similar with the three aforementioned scents, it was similar structures, similar note groups, just very differently interpreted. Sort of a fudgy, creamy, yet not excessively sweet gourmand, evolving into something more sober and even slightly dark (yet without the Goth edginess of, let's say, Salvador Dali PH or Ungaro II and III), just a more mature and more formal note, like very smooth suede leather replicated in a scent. Dissimilar to the "night themed"-gourmand is the unusually fresh and nearly aquatic-airy buildup until its blatantly suede-gourmand drydown.

    Peacefully and harmoniously coexisting with the creamy-fudge-like deliciousness is another, parallel group of notes, just about the freshest, crispest and most invigorating florals, resin, spice and wood notes one can imagine in a scent with a gourmand emphasis. Finally, these two separate, parallel accords are united into one of the least common yet quite comforting, calm, reassuring, also slightly mysterious and dreamlike suede drydowns currently existing.


    Frankly, I am biased in favor of this scent and this is why my description is almost unjustifiably superlative, yet, the more I focus on this scent, the more I am gripped and intrigued by certain notes, their subtleties and gradual developments.
