La nuit intime de l'homme
One of the most important characteristics of a perfume is the praise for the fragrance we use. I always look at two different situations associated with this olfactory pleasure we evoke in others:
- In a more anonymous and social ambiance,
- And in a more personal situation between two people in an intimate meeting.
Looking only at male perfumes, the original La Nuit de L'Homme Eau de Toilette has always been a big exponent when it comes to anonymous praise or appearing in more social settings. Undoubtedly, ladies like this fragrance and notice men who wear it. Because it has been massively commented on and broadcast, at least on Youtube, everyone has a bottle (or two). Currently, it has become an 'easy' fragrance and I am not sure that it will retain its initial effectiveness.

La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum could hardly be a "normal" flanker of La Nuit de L'Homme Eau de Toilette. It lacks the cardamom note, which is perhaps the most noticeable note in the original. I think it's a slightly different scent. It's a fragrance that is very well made, but unfortunately a little underperforming and little known to the public. It starts with an oriental mixture of anise, fennel, and pepper, similar to Opium pour Homme Eau de Toilette, but with a small dose of mild lavender. The body is filled with sweet and (strong) fruity notes. At the base, the resins and discreet vetiver give the dryness a masculine note, which is also sweetened by peaceful vanilla. It is less young and more mature than the original. For me, this is the best "La Nuit ...". It is a fragrance that attracts less attention, but it becomes much more effective in terms of "close encounters". From this point of view, it makes an excellent team with the original: one can be used for flirting and the other for intimate use.

Let's rate this intimacy potion:
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Opening: 9.5 (spicy and anised opening accord that gives way to a very fruity body)
Drydown: 8.5 (soft vanilla and vetiver dryness)
Longevity: 6.5 (5~6 hours in my skin, with 3 sprays; below average)
Sillage: 6.5 (4~5 feet sillage with 1.5 hours of projection; better if used on clothes)
Exclusivity: 7.5 (not many similar fragrances, but a certain familiarity with the original La Nuit de L'Homme Eau de Toilette; I also think it resembles to the younger Mauboussin Private Club).
Portability: 8.5 (Easy to use, but better in colder temperatures)
Versatility: 8.0 (if you are heavy on the trigger you will have unexpectedly better versatility, but never for a long time)
Praise: 9.0 (a ladies pleaser, but better for intimacy)
Quality: 8.0 (above-average high-quality ingredients, but low performance; my bottle dates from 2014 and has better performance than current versions)
Presentation: 9.0 (elegant and discreet)
Price: 6.0 (I bought my 100ml flask on sale for € 45, but it usually sells around € 100).
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 8.18 / 10.00
between 7 and 8 = above average;
between 8 and 9 = recommended;
greater than 9 = don't miss it;
Opinion: Not good value for money, especially when you consider the below-average performance. However, it is very suitable for "close encounters" where you may prefer a more elegant and less intrusive scent.
Recommended? It depends on your budget or the way you appreciate perfumes. I prefer this one to the original.
Blind worthy of buying? Not really, unless you're not on a budget and don't value performance.

Beautiful winter scent
I have recently tried quite a few fragrances and now find so little by little my TOP 10 perfumes that accompany me over the year.

I love, for example, Prada L'Homme for the office and everyday life, Bleu de Chanel for spring / summer, Aqua di Gio and D&G the one are top. However, I had the right fragrance for the winter yet could not find.

"YSL la Nuit de l'homme le Parfum" is exactly what I was looking for and fits me (43 J.) just ideal. I wear him super happy and am really excited. Despite the sweetness, the fragrance is m.E. by its spiciness very masculine and seems high-quality and elegant (gentlemanlike). Since the fragrance is rather close to the body and does not fill the whole room, he is also in the office well portable and thus the ideal addition to my collection.

Note: I know the highly praised EDT version unfortunately not yet and have already read several times that many are disappointed by the le parfum variant, because they expect a more intense version of the EDT. But they are probably very different fragrances.

For myself, definitely the perfect masculine winter perfume with an oriental sweet note. By the way, he also has a sufficiently good durability with me

The "warm" brother
This is my first comment in this forum, so please forgive me if I do not have the most gifted nose.

The first time I got in touch with the fragrance was 2 years ago, a good friend of mine owned it for quite some time and I searched his collection to get a little inspiration. Besides CK One "Shock" he listed it as his favorite winter scent
At the first try I was a little bit deterred! Too sweet, too intimate, almost a little pushy. So I put it aside and continued to enjoy other scents
Now, 2 years later, I went once again to the perfumery of my trust with my better half and saw him once again in front of me. Actually already ticked off in my mind, I just wanted to convince myself again that he was really right in my memory. One spray and "Wow". My nose has changed! Because I suddenly found the entrance inviting. The peppery spice, simply the "warm brother" of the original. Not so "office-like", just more intimate! After I also got the Go! of the woman, she has to smell it after all, directly packed! Great fragrance for the cold, dark season, which invites you to cuddle.

To quote the previous speaker "...just a great designer!"

a more mature side of la Nuit
First off I’d like to clarify that I’m not as head over hills with the “original” La Nuit de l’Homme as most of the people in here, in fact I don’t own it but I do own 3 of the flankers. Despite how much I appreciate it and feel I should get it sooner or later I don’t believe it lives up to the insane hype. I’ve tested it (a reformulation) and while I feel it’s worth having and a great date scent it’s not the frag “to rule them all”.

That being said, I love what they did with Le Parfum and how they improved on a formula that already proved to be a winner. I do miss the cardamom but I love how the fruity notes interact with and take La Nuit to whole new level. I also love the idea of including vanilla but I was hardly able to notice it so that’s perhaps my only issue, the absence of said vanilla.

If La Nuit de l’Homme was a 30 year old guy I’d say Le Parfum is a 40 year old. A more seasoned version, just as sexy but a different kind of sexy so please, don’t dress Le Parfum down, embrace the full experience since this is a gentleman’s fragrance.

Longevity is ok, average perhaps and sillage is moderate but a gentleman is never loud, he is subtile, does not draw attention for the wrong reason.

Designer in perfection!
La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum, which I often missed out on, has really impressed me lately! Strange that it is again a scent of YSL... :)

The fragrance opens peppery and spicy with a great freshness and immediately wants to enliven to action! Wow, I'm into that kind of opening!
In the further course the smell becomes beautifully dark-fruity, accompanied with a shower gel note and a breath of the original La Nuit is to be guessed.
The durability is different than feared, really decent although I had read a lot of negative about it. To this must be said that I describe the 2010ner BATCH.
(The current version will then appear here as a supplement.)
Le Parfum continues in the drydown with more woody notes, while the fruity-berry notes are still pressing.
The quality is really fine despite or even because of the shower gel note, and makes the fragrance more adult and somewhat more distinctive through this, compared to the original La Nuit.
Grade for evening or special occasions I find it top and not as "good" as the original.
The Sillage is not exactly the strongest, but is for this already very intensive, spicy, fruity fragrance sufficient and very pleasant.
I have to say that I underestimated this fragrance in the beginning, because I wanted a more intense La Nuit de L'Homme and didn't give the fragrance a fair chance.
A mistake, especially since tastes change and this one here is absolutely male, striking, dark but also sweet, seductive.
For me it smells like a designer in perfection!

This is my fantasy of the man
I gave this wonderful little water to my husband for his birthday.
Even when I was at the... tested the scent, I thought, uh, it'd be something. After two weeks he finally used it. The fragrance is very intense fruity, fresh, seductively simply masculine. A strong man's breast to cuddle up to is my first thought.
Even after he left the room, it still smells like him. But the tastes are so different, he thinks he's okay. OKAY? Yes he smells good, but he has better and pointed once again to Zino :-| without words!

Bond. James Bond.
I have found the perfect analogy for this fragrance.

James Bond is a character. But every few films he is played by someone else. Do you know this feeling when you first think about "THE NOW SHOULD BE JAMES BOND", and 2 films or 4 years later you are so used to the new actor for the role that the old one almost seems strange?

I feel similar now with the La Nuit de L'Homme series. Yes, YSL is milking the La Nuit cow as it says in the picture book of capitalism. And as all other big mainstream houses do. But you gotta hand it to them - they do it with style.

I've had this fragrance for over 2-3 years, and never got so warm with it. But this has now changed. I think at first I was so fixated about how La Nuit de L'Homme has to smell that I had a hard time with the facial expressions of this newer actor. But now I understand his portrayal of the role:

I think La Nuit de L'Homme is fresh in the opening, respectively the head and heart notes spicy fresh, and in the base sweet, cosy, flattering. Le Parfum has now felt the spicy aspects a bit pulled down in the pyramid, and more broadly fanned out. And even the top note is peppered and aniseeded to accentuate it even more. Sweetness is still prominent, but the wort now lets the fragrance ship waver more into the other side, where it tickles spicy fresh What comes out is a somewhat harsher, less gentle version of La Nuit, - like a James Bond with edgier facial features! That's not necessarily negative. For me it will be more of an autumn / winter scent, because the spicy, almost slightly spicy kind has something warming in it.
I can still remember when I first tested it! I was completely blown away because it worked in the opening as if it was just an ultra strong version of Vintage La Nuit. However, I think it felt that way, because my nose was a bit tired in the shop, and the nuances didn't come out so fine anymore.

For me, the fragrance, even though it can't get to the original LNDL, is an absolute first prize! It's like the 5th part of my favorite movie is coming out... apart from the fact that in this case it was the 2nd part... but I only really discovered it now, after all the other flanks, maybe because my nose is more used to it now.
I haven't paid much attention to it over the years because it may polarize too much as a year-round signature fragrance. But it's really very suitable in those seasons, in spring maybe even... in summer you won't open anyone with it, at least in the evening, but there's simply something more suitable... (:

Anyway, again a No-Brainer if you like the fragrance boozy/wruity/sweet in general, and the LNDL series in particular. Simply also a nice change.

The durability and sillage I find are better than the latest version of LNDL, but worse than the vintage and L'Intense.

"Moneypenny. I need this gadget for my next mission. Please send it to my local agent."

(languishing Moneypenny lets her pretty face sink into the supported arms at the desk..)

Yes, James. :)

I did it again
On Saturday with the woman into the city to shop, actually clothes searched. Then a trip to the perfumery.
I have read about this smell here positive, as well as negative and thought, I must test it absolutely.
I can only say this much:
The first sprayer on my arm and I was again thrilled, as well as by the Valentino Uomo Intense .
My wife told me to buy it, too. Said, done.
I find the fragrance fruity, but also fresh and masculine.
In short, exactly my thing.
The Iris doesn't come now like the Valentino, but it's different good.
A great fragrance as I find.
9 out of 10 points from me.

Dark Barbershop
Scentrack: Serge Gainsbourg - Black Trombone

In my opinion a very successful YSL flanker, unfortunately not so popular. It opens up with oriental mix of anise and pepper reminding me of Opium pour Homme, with small dose of soft barbershop lavender. The fullness of fragrant body is fulfilled by sweet fruity ester notes, like candied fruits coated in chocolate. Resins and pale vetiver give another masculine touch, ending with gentle and peaceful vanilla.
Not so loud as EdT, more rounded, more mystical and less synthetic. Sexy, but somehow cool.
Wear EdT if you're single, and Le Parfum if you have a special lady in your heart.

An aromatic-spicy mystery in an elegant fumé bottle: pleasant and refined but not so strong and longlasting .
High price.

This is the forgotten and underrated flanker of La Nuit. Nevertheless in my opinion is probably the best one of the entire line.
