„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...

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

Stay for breakfast
So this is it, my ultimate feel-good scent, which cannot be surpassed at P/L. The scent is so good on my skin that I can't stop smelling myself. Everyone and everyone is giving me a compliment! It is warm, soft, fluffy and smells so good in the base 12 hours after application that it is really difficult to get the lady off my neck in the morning. La nuit de l'homme radiates a fresh, green feel-good aroma without ever becoming lazy or boring. YSL, you did it. Who needs Barny Stinson's Playbook when he's got your magic tincture that fills up your self-confidence so much that it could last forever.

A fabulous scent, but unfortunately it's been reformulated.
I could write a novel, I love the scent so much but unfortunately they have gone down the drain with reformulations..

Scent in itself an indescribable experience every time I smell it. 9/10.
Durability: it is unfortunately no longer what it used to be, but with me it still lasts 6 hours, therefore 6/10.
Sillage: in the first 2 hours one is already noticed, however, from then it also goes quickly downhill. 6/10
Flacon: The lid makes it very elegant. 7/10
Price: hard to say if it's worth it, you have to decide for yourself, i find 50ml can be bought to remember this scent from time to time

The Night of the Man
The perfume with the incomparable name.
The Night of the Man The name speaks for itself and perfectly reflects what this fragrance was created for.
For me better than the fresh original L'homme.
The fragrance is oriental spicy with the enchanting cardamom, lavender and tonka notes
This fragrance is a masterpiece
Unfortunately, the fragrance has already been changed several times in its existence in terms of durability.
This should still not deter, who loves the fragrance should still buy it!

For me one of the best designer evening scents on the market.

The cardamom fragrance that still rocks the perfume market
La Nuit de L'Homme puzzles me wirth its wide acceptance and hype for a couple of years. For me it's a fragrance with polarized features with a lot of pluses and a lot of minuses. Let me explain you all my [+] and [-]:

[ + ]
- Very sexy! Unquestionably ladies like this fragrance and notice men who wear it.
- The flask is very simple and quite attractive.
- Within the perfume brand elite trio, the YSL brand attracts more young people than Chanel or Dior and has a broader market and acceptance.
- Within the perfume elite trio, the YSL brand may be considered more affordable than Dior or Chanel.
- I just know 4 perfumes thay may be considered an atemptive look a like of La Nuit de l'Homme; Other hits like Dior Sauvage and Bleu de Chanel have a million clones.
- The cardamom note is outstanding and it is maybe one the best cardamom in any of my perfumes of my collection.
- Extremely eclectic and versatile. Perfect for the office.
[ - ]
- Still more expensive than other same target designer fragrances that I prefer. It's also more expensive than other YSL perfumes i like a lot more like Kouros or Opium for example.
- The current batches are shamefully diluted. Is it pure greed? .. or is it to make it more elegant and discreet? ... or was it made on purpose to make the perfume less intrusive to use and prevent men from disturbing the surrounding ladies?... Well, whatever the reason is, I prefer the older batches!
- Be prepared to respray a lot. Performance with a single application is just not enough for most situations.
- Because it was massively commented and broadcast at least on Youtube, everyone has a bottle (or two). Currently is a common scent.
- It lacks a real EdP concentration flanker. The two perfumes "Intense" and "Le Parfum" lauched as flankers with an EdP concentration, have different notes, a different scent, and I consider them just different perfumes.

Let's rate this cardamom manly potion:
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scent Opening:.........9,5 (very good fresh cardamom blast)
Scent Drydown:........8.0 (soft sweet drydown)
Longevity:..................6.0 (close to 5 hours in my skin, with 3 sprays; older batches would deserve an 8.0)
Sillage:........................6.0 (4 feet sillage with 1.5 hours projection; it performs better on clothes; older batches would deserve an 8.0)
Uniqueness:..............7.5 (not many similar scents, but everyones knows it and uses it; less expensive similar scents like the "Y Collection" by Zara, "Halloween Man Shot" and "F by Ferragamo pour Homme Black" have the same or better performance)
Wearability:...............8.5 (just avoid extreme temperatures, either cold or hot weather)
Versatility:.................8.0 (if you go heavy on the trigger, you will have an unexpected better versatility but never for a long time)
Compliments:..........10.0 (a ladies natural pleaser, both young and mature)
Quality:......................7.5 (above average quality ingredients but shameful performance)
Presentation:............9.0 (Elegant and discreet)
Price:..........................6.5 (usually €75.00 for the 100 ml flask + taxes + shipping).
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Overall rating: 7,86/10.00
between 7 and 8 =above average;
between 8 and 9 = recommended;
bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
Opinion: A bad value for money offer even for an efficient manly attention graber scent but with a bad performance.
Recommended? It depends on your budget or in the way you value perfumes. Good for a good impression on a job interview conducted by a lady, but inoffensive for a long night out.
Blind buy worthy? Not really, unless you don't value performance.

Music: Cat Stevens - "Tea for the Tillerman" - It's a very nice piece of music but lasts less than one minute.

Spicy and gentle romance at the blue hour
This scent has it (unexpectedly) hard with me. He is a love-hate without hate - but also without deep love. Fascination without long-lasting attraction. Nevertheless: a very good scent.

What I appreciate him for

The dominant, spicy, even slightly fresh cardamom note, which is perfectly enveloped by a somewhat delicate lavenderiness and is literally "rounded off", radiates a masculinity that does not have too much sweetness (there is, of course, a little sweetness in the background). Pleased to meet you. LNDH does not make the mistake of trying to curry favour and "pretending to be sweet", but remains true to a certain polarity - even if it is only culturally shaped. This makes it, I think, really a very good first-date-let-as-drink-good scent, especially for the evening hours. He doesn't yell chubby: "I want full contact!", but subtly says: "This means something to me, I wanted to make myself beautiful / scented well for you."

But then there is something else, perhaps decisive, which is why I find LNDH so fascinating. This fragrance is like its older brother - the, in the best sense of the word, Nice Guy "L'Homme" - very soft, gentle, harmonious for all its spiciness - especially "in the air", on the back of the hand or a test strip it is a little more biting. Unlike in Kilian's "Intoxicated", for example, cardamom here does not rob one of the senses. It rather seems as if all scent components have been purified and purified like mountain water through many layers of rock. Malicious tongues would probably describe this more as "softened for the mass market" or "dilution".

This combination of spiciness and softness somehow gives me the impression that LNDH is a "romantic" men's fragrance. Rather quiet, a little dreamy, a little playful, not intrusive, more urban-masculine than viking-masculine. Its colour (for all synesthetes): dark purple/blue like the sky on some days immediately after the blue hour in the evening. A night scent without blackness. The intended and really perfect complement to L'Homme. Cultivated, with manners, without airs and graces. Pleasing, without edges, but not without peculiarity. Really well done. I wouldn't be surprised if Owen Wilson had worn this fragrance in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris".

Which dims my fascination a little bit

I'm afraid he gets on my nerves quickly. Literally. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable with him, as if there is a disturbing component. Once it led to headaches, which I only know from amber crackers or very waxy scents that take my breath away. Perhaps it is the lavender that tires me or becomes too much for me at some point (e.g. in "masculin Pluriel" or "Sartorial") or it is a previously covered synthetic. I don't know - and luckily it always doesn't come up.

And apart from that the LNDH lacks a little bit of angularity. Harmony is beautiful, but sometimes there can be a little friction. At least if you wear perfume not only to please others, but also for yourself.

There are a lot of things to be said about durability and sillage, but I'd rather leave it alone. My impression: The durability is as always strongly dependent on your own body temperature, outside temperature, sweating, skin vs. clothes vs. hair sprayed, how many sprayers etc. And adaptation. Everyone has to find out for themselves. With me, he is somehow in the middle of the field in both cases, rather in the lower.

So, at least for me, it remains a "threshold fragrance" overall: a fragrance that I probably won't include in my collection, but which I can't forget either. Definitely one should have tested it once. 99 percent of all people should like it well or very well. And even here, in a specialized forum where most users know many fragrances, it is well rated and loved. Quite right.

Stronger than you might think
I am lucky to have an older batch of this fragrance. Guys, this little baby really performs on me every single time I am wearing it. I like to wear it for special nights only. Last time I wore it for my birthday and people were keep asking me about it. Also, a friend of mine recently bought a new batch but he said that it stays on his skin for just 3-4 hours with a light projection in the first hour. Every single time I wear it I get at least 8 hours of longevity with a huge sillage and projection in the first 2-3 hours and I can still smell it on me even after 7-8 hours. This is the perfect performance for me that a fragrance can offer. Not beastly, not weak, just perfect.
The smell ? Powdery, kinda soapy but a very sensual kind of soap. Sweet cardamom and a very sexy sweet smell overall. I don’t know how the new batches performs but mine it’s just perfect. One of the best (if not the best) fragrance for a night out with a girl. 3-4 Squirts for me whenever I use it. And the perfect season for this It’s Autumn if you ask me. When it gets a bit cold outside but not freezing either.
I simply love it.
