La Nuit de L'Homme - one of the most popular fragrances for men on the market. An absolute superstar in the fragrance community with a huge fan base. Meanwhile, this fragrance has already 12 years on the hump. It seems longer, especially since you hear the word vintage formula more often. I've had the original scent in my collection for a long time too. It might be one of the batches between 2009 and 2011 and I can understand people's admiration. The current batches aren't abysmal, but there are still huge differences in quality. The current batches smell like solid designer releases, more synthetic and slightly watered down in contrast. Tested a current batch recently and differences are clear. Unfortunately. The original would have niche quality and was even for double the price find many buyers, I'm sure.
Overall, the series is really good. With the Bleu Electrique is already the 5th of this series in my collection. The original, the La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum
, La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense
and the La Nuit de L'Homme Frozen Cologne
, which was unfortunately discontinued. The Frozen Cologne is my favorite and with this Bleu Electrique you get once again a fragrance that goes something in the fresh direction.
Initially when this LNDL BE was listed on the home page as a new introduction I was not very angefixt. That's more because of the lame original Eau Electrique: That was rather meow, solid and according to the motto: Can you, you do not have to. One of many. Only after the many positive feedback here I became curious. Actually this community is rather critical and demanding with new designer releases, especially with flankers. Now it is with 8.6 on place 20 of the men's fragrances. Awesome. I have to say: deserved. For me, the best scent of the currently available fragrances in this range. Whether it is better than the "Vintage" does not matter, since you probably get these anyway only at moon prices on some portals. For me, a very great and overdue release. The flankers in this series are good, but also very unique. This one clearly has the DNA of the original and in addition does not jump into a completely different garb.
With the Eau Electrique, the fragrance has not much to do. Fortunately. With which to advertise, whether that was a good move? But for that you get a beautiful blue bottle with great color gradient. Very attractive. In my opinion, this one is very much in the vein of the original circa 2010. Initially, it also has a bit of a resemblance to Frozen Cologne because of the freshness. I think you get a similar good quality fragrance. Here YSL has finally stayed close to the original without a lot of gimmicks or to adapt current trends. The somewhat fresher DNA stands out, but remains true to the basic concept.
Who expects something innovative will probably be disappointed. For people who have long had a preference for fragrances are probably not rather blown away because it is already a rather familiar fragrance, but: For fans of this series and for people who are looking for an absolute Crowdpleaser without much risk will find here an absolutely great fragrance. 100%. I find the even more uncomplicated and gentle than the original. I find the spiciness of the original a bit stronger, here it has been toned down a bit and also modeled with freshness. Really gentle and extremely sensual. Because of the freshness and toned down spice, this also goes great in daylight and also warmer temperatures. After initial Frozen Cologne touch, it goes quite clearly in the direction of the Ur-Duftes.
A safe fragrance, a crowdpleaser, an always walker. Really corners and edges are not to be found here. Must also not always. Who is looking for uncomplicated sensuality, will find here. A fragrance that I would wear mainly during the day, especially between 10 and 20 degrees.
From the performance I am also very satisfied. An exact number of hours I have not yet herausgetestet, but minimum 8 hours are here drinne. With initially very good sillage it drifts into something about skin tight and is quite pleasant and never too much. You can or should take a few more sprays if you like to smell a little more intense. This is not a problem here, as this DNA is so unobtrusive that even with over 10 sprays you would not be negatively noticed. On clothing, the certainly still holds significantly better. Overall, this performance is above average after some tests.
As a conclusion, I can say: after the Armani Code EdP another fragrance that appeared in 2021 and ties in with good old originals. Especially for fans of this series a great release. In addition, a great Immergeher, who is looking for an absolutely safe sweet fragrance. Here the wheel is not reinvented but one ties to good old releases. As I said: For me, the current best of the La Nuit De L'Homme series of the currently available fragrances. Blindbuy risk extremely low.
