La Nuit de l’Homme was launched by Yves Saint Lauren House in 2009. This extraordinary fragrance was created by perfumers Pierre Wargnye, Dominique Ropion, and Anne Flipo. Attracting and vibrant, no doubt that this fragrance is one of the most fashionable perfumes of the brand. It is the masculine fragrance who leaves memories and creates hope.
The first advertising campaign introduced Vincent Cassel, a famous French actor, who is the perfume’s muse since March 2009. The campaign was shot by Gaspard Noe, a French filmmaker.
La Nuit de l’Homme Qualities
Everything it starts with a note of green citrus, the lime that barely rips, very sour and fresh. Soon a golden powder of cardamom is poured over the lime, which gives it a certain amount of pedantry and heat. Lavander makes them plays and throws a sweet and a pleasant breeze. Now all the elements form a perfect melange and the scent does not change over time. You get used to it and perceive it around you. The cedar is not overly used or dusty, on the contrary, this is very rich scent, damp and very well integrated. The olfactory pleasure continues into the dry-down with a nice fresh vetiver note that is not overly “rooty” or earthy.

La Nuit de l’Homme scent exemplify a story full of passion, bold sensuality and seduction. It is based on personal confidence and dynamism. It is deep enough and mysterious to provide a perfect night fragrance.
Generally, it’s a good scent, a reliable choice. I appreciate Yves Saint Laurent trying to create an opulent evening scent. In a way, they succeeded. They preferred to play it safe by using notes and accords that are very common. They reduce the edginess of the scent by adding a warm, oriental sweetness to it. It tends to suit best to the younger men but can be worn by young adults. Longevity is very good as well, lasting anywhere from 8-10 hours on the skin. It’s more popular with the ladies because is more on the sweet side.
Though the fragrance could be worn during the day, I tend to recommend it, especially in the evenings, when the environment around is relaxed and quiet, giving the scent the chance to ooze out. The bottles reveal a dark background. Is the first clue for a tough, alert, cool and vibrant ingredient. Overall, Nuit de l ‘Homme it’s a very safe choice who sends the devastating force of the night man. The fragrance is available in three sizes of bottle: 40ml, 60ml, and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
