    Default La nuit de l'homme or Pure Malt?

    For an 18 year old which would be the better scent?
    Thanks!

    Both would be fine for someone of that age IMO. Of the two, I'd pick Pure Malt as the better one.

    Both would be a fine purchase for any wardrobe. Of the two, I prefer La Nuit because Pure Malt on my skin unfortunately blends to an almost pure licorice smell, though I do enjoy the scent on others.

    Pure Malt is the far better scent, regardless of your age.

    While La Nuit is great, I'd have to go with Pure Malt as well...

    La Nuit is spicier, Pure Malt is sweeter. Whichever suits you better.

    Own both. La Nuit barely gets a look-in these days. Pure Malt all the way.

    I prefer Michael Kors for men over pure malt. And La Nuit as well.

    The reason I cannot wear any TM frags is because i love it on my woman, and that TM dna in all flankers to me reminds me of her...so I dont like it on me. (not because I dont like it....I just prefer it on my woman).

    I love PM but I find La nuit de l'homme far more versatile and sexier. If you want the ladies
    chasing you down I'd roll with La Nuit.

    My pick would be La Nuit actually. Amazing fragrance.. Bit on a powdery side, but everyone loves it around me.

    I used to like PM but it fell out of favor with me. It opens nicely, but the drydown becomes annoying and cloying with some weird note that I cannot stand. Sold my bottle on Ebay (but kept a 5ml decant in case I decide to give it a revisit).
    Current Favorites (most worn in last month):

    YSL L'homme
    Bergamote 22 - Le Labo
    Cologne Indelebile - FM
    L'Humaniste - Frapin
    Memoir Man - Amouage
    Currently wearing: Terre d'Hermès by Hermès

    Pure malt✔️, although I traded it for LDH because my nose had enough of PM : but for cooler temps PM and for warmer temps LDH

    Pure Malt, without hesitation.

    La Nuit is a lock on getting more compliments IMO and less likely to over project in class/lecture hall.

    Default Re: La nuit de l'homme or Pure Malt?

    I find Pure malt is too sweet, so La nuit gets my vote.

    I think pure malt smells better, and has more noticable projection by far. But if your going for general compliments I think la nuit is better.

    Both are fine for your age, but personally I prefer La Nuit MUCH more over Pure Malt.

    I own and wear both, and I (personally) prefer Pure Malt, although it isn't quite the slam dunk that some responding in this thread make it out to be.

    I suggest trying both of them. There shouldn't be a huge difference in terms of the compliment factor, so you should go with the one that wears the best on you, and that you like the most.
