„Passed”


La nuit de l'Homme is a scent that is frequently evoked when guys search for a womanizer / pantydropper / clubbing scent. On youtube you see lots of positive reviews, women...

„A Composition with Potential, a failure nonetheless.”


I've worn La Nuit De L'Homme on a number of occasions and each time it has opened differently on my skin. At times it has manifested...

I hate to admit it, I like it
I heard from this because Jeremy Fragrance hype it up. The notes are perfect, so i just jumped in as a blindbuy. (2019, so its after every reformulation)

First time I really disliked it, because its a totally diferent type of masculanity than I expected, its much more refined and sophisticated than The Armani Code, The Zadig This is Him, Sauvage or The One. Its much more focused on spices than sweetness or freshness with a fresh, undeterminable side note.

But some weeks later I give it a try again..and again..and again. And after the 5th try I just realised its really likeable, just different enough to need some time tu understand it.

The fun fact is the longetivity. Every person on the internet cry about this frag's performance, but I just experience the opposite. Its sillage is perfect for an elegant and sophisticated fragrance, not loud, but not too close to the skin. If someone close to you, its 100% recognizable, but not if you are just walk in front of someone, so you cannot annoy anyone with this sillage. Its the perfect for an elegance fragrance, isnt it?

The longetivity is totally okay on me too, its 6+ hours with 15 cm of range at the last hours - but I think its enough for this type of smell - its not a Sauvage type statments after all :)

Online petition for more durability?
Worldwide, LNDL is certainly one of the most popular men's fragrances next to Aventus when it comes to female compliments. For my part, I for one have never been regularly approached by FREMEN women and asked what kind of fragrance it is, except this one. If you look at YouTube videos and reactions to LNDL, the response seems to be the same worldwide.
The problem with it is that it only lasts for 2 hours and customers have to resort to fragrances that unfortunately do not evoke the same "success" with the ladies or to dupes like Midnight Rendevouz from DUA (without doubt very close to the original and yet it does not evoke the multitude of compliments).
Nor do I see the harm in the consumer paying the same money for less quality. I thought about whether it might make sense to create an online petition, which on the one hand calls for the reformulation of LNDL but perhaps even more importantly, which is generally against the reformulation of perfumes. Surely a fragrance can go with the times and some are certainly not modern enough and get a new twist that makes it more wearable today or it has to be adapted because an ingredient is banned. Everything ok, but if fragrances are bungled from 12 hours+ to 2 hours, then I think it's truly a scam on the consumer that one can and should actively defend oneself against.
What do you think? I could well imagine that the response could be very high even beyond German borders.

My first love
Through the many praises of Jeremy I became aware of this fragrance and even bought it blind. I don't regret this at all to this day
The scent smells to me very much like sexy cardamom and a little sweet (my nose is not one of the most trained, though). During the day in summer I would not want to wear it, as it is probably a bit too intrusive at first. In the evening, however, you can wear it all year round. Perfect for a date or when you're a little dressed up. With a shirt the scent comes along perfectly in the overall picture.

Here comes the big but... the durability and sillage. In the beginning, so the first hour, I would call the Sillage decent, but unfortunately it flattens out very quickly. I would say that I perceive it in the air for a maximum of 2-3 hours, after that only up close. In any case I would spray two more sprays on the shirt to get a little more durability out of it. So it is best to carry a pocket sprayer with you.

I usually spray five times.

I never had the pleasure of smelling the “vintage” version;
and this one (it’s a 2019 batch) starts off REALLY SOFT, immediately. It’s got a great, spicy, dark scent, but right off the bat it’s a skin scent. As it dries down I personally get a lot of the cumin vibe resonating. To me, it really smells how a well made Yellow Thai Curry tastes; a great initial spicy kick that starts to sweeten up a lot, and finally leaves a resonating cumin vibe. I personally don’t get more than 3 hours of performance on skin, but I only bought it because I scored a deal on it. I probably won’t be wearing it out much, as most people are wearing masks and staying 6ft away from each other, so this is more of a “nice night at home with the wife” scent to play with for me. It’s a great scent, just way too soft to wear in 2020 (no one is going to smell it with social distancing in effect)

Sexy Beast
A wonderful fragrance for evenings and nights; the name could not be more fitting. Very manly, very sexy, almost aggressive.
If I were hanging out on summer nights to party or on a date. I can imagine that many women find it perfect and very attractive. Anyone can wear it, young or old. I smell pepper in the first place and practically no cardamom! What does not bother me, I love pepper in perfumes. In the drydown (after 2-3 hours) it is a bit creamier/powdery/sweeter. All in all highly recommended, today 66€ for 100ml paid! Good price/performance ratio

Bad buy.
Not everything that is hyped is good - like the original "La Nuit De L'Homme". Maybe it has rightfully so many followers - but I do not like it. It has nothing attractive for me, and I can't think of a reason why I should wear this fragrance when there are so many other fragrances that are just better and smell better - sorry, my opinion.

From the dark side of evolution
It's a pity. Annoying. Sad. But it's the time we live in. There were once washing machines built to take decades. TVs, radios, razors, electric mixers. One sign of quality is longevity. But the world is spinning faster and faster, and that makes us consume more and more. And that runs like a red woven thread through most industries. Even the world of fragrances does not stop there.

Successful fragrances are reformulated, in the Darwinian sense of evolution. This means adapting them to the market in the best possible way. In other words, with the same result as possible, but less under resources, to distribute the whole thing even more profitably. Yves Saint Laurent's "La Nuit de L'Homme" is such a fragrance that fell victim to this. The base, his DNA, is really great class, great art. But the watered-down version of it is now just a bad joke
To be honest, I'm really annoyed. It's been many years since I tested it longer and more thoroughly. I liked it, but at that time it didn't make it home as a bottle. But I remember that it was strong, it had expression. It had expression. And today? Sprayed on and after a short time the whole thing can only be felt close to the body. And not only that: 4-5 sprayers, I wasn't on the road for four hours, came back, changed my clothes, and noticed practically nothing more on me. Sure, fragrances work differently for everyone, but for me the olfactory predetermined breaking points are clearly visible here compared to the first version of this fragrance.

As I already mentioned in my review of "Shadow Play", there are fortunately still some manufactories that display a little idealism - like the label Dua Fragrances. Under the name "Midnight Rendezvous" they have given the DNA of "La nuit de L'Homme" what the fragrance deserves: a sillage and durability worthy of its quality and beauty. If you're mourning the old "La nuit de L'Homme", give Midnight Rendezvous by Dua Fragrances a chance. It's a gift to say that here too, there are cutbacks to be made - their bottles are just as cheaply produced as they are ugly ... but honestly ... then it's better to cut back on the place than on the quality of the contents.

I'll tell it like it is: I'm willing to pay a lot of money for a really good smell. "La nuit de L'Homme", on the other hand, is so attractively priced that one could basically say that you can't go wrong for about 50 euros - that's what it's so good for. Nope, not at all. It used to be, but is now just a tired infusion of itself. But in view of the - on my skin - extremely weak performance, it's not even worth that anymore. And that is a pity. Annoying. Sad.

PS: I intentionally did not rate the fragrance itself. His DNA deserves at least a 10. But I can't reconcile it with my conscience to evaluate this adultery here in such a way.

The shortest Nuit

I start by saying that this fragrance has undergone two fairly important reformulations, the first version (2009-2010) is the most intense and darker version, the second (2010-2015) has a fresher and brighter opening and equal duration, and the third (2016) rounder and less lasting.
La Nuit de l'homme is certainly the most talked about contemporary perfume of the French house. This has a thousand flaws, starting from longevity and complexity (non-existent) but tremendously pleasant.
I tried the second version, as I said, the opening is very bright, aromatic, fresh spices, bergamot and lavender, after 5 minutes, there is a squintalade of cardamom and cumin, a strange aromatic sweetness, made slightly virile by cedar and vetivers who are barely heard. Just two lines to explain this perfume but just like that, I wouldn't know what else to add since it's really all there. Brief is the description, how short is the duration of this perfume, 4-5 hours maximum on the skin and barely perceptible sillage, however if we want to say it all, cardamom is cumin, they are so pleasant that they really like everyone, especially the most Young people.
A spicy-woody perfume, very subtle, not very complex, albeit pleasant but I can give it little more than enough. I see it a fragrance suitable for the evening, maybe for an appointment (given the reduced sillage, only the person who is attached to you would feel it) quite sexy and liked, but from a perfume called "La Nuit", you expect a intense, dense, decisive, intense, polarizing perfume and instead you find yourself a fragrance a sweet, subtle, simple, with zero evolution but nevertheless attracts-compliments. And to think that YSL has produced masterpieces such as M7, Opium, Jazz, and I, with the "peak" perfume of this maison, expected something else entirely.

Lots of compliments, no matter what the time!
I have been using this perfume for some time now and can only say again and again that it is (currently) my favourite fragrance. The first gush that gets into my nose always knocks me out again!

I can wear it in everyday life as well as in the evening when I go out. Depending on my mood or on activities at work, e.g. during important conversations.

My girlfriend loves the scent on me and I am constantly showered with compliments from both my male and female friends
Also when shopping or in the city, I am addressed to the scent.
I personally find the scent very pleasant, not too obtrusive but still "sensational".

My collection is very small so far, as I have only recently joined, but this fragrance will ALWAYS be on my perfume shelf.

The durability is really good and lasts about 8 to 9 hours on my skin. On my clothes I can sometimes smell it even a day later.

You were once so wonderful
I had the original version of La Nuit de L'Homme and loved it. Now I came across him again and thought it was time again to bring him into my collection. Of course I noticed that he has lost some of his performance. But I still have to have him. Unfortunately. I can't tell you how disappointed I am. It is unfortunately only a mild breeze. You can still sniff the DNA, but that's it. You just think, come, come, dare, unfold, scream a little. But nothing comes. I spray the scent on the skin and it is only very easily perceptible from the beginning. It's a pity, but that will be the last bottle of yours

A lovely scent-cardamom & lavender with woods. Alluring & sensual, spicy & fun. Perfect for dates but bring an atomiser, it's not strong.
