The foundation stone and an unexpressed love of father and son
La Nuit de L'homme, for some it is only a hyped scent, for me it is my first great love and the beginning of a never ending story, an indescribable passion.

This was the beginning of EVERYTHING! It is the cornerstone of my passion for fragrances.

I still remember when I smelled him for the first time at my father, approx. 16 I was at this time. Oh God, I was overwhelmed! this lavender, the cardamom, a sexy, complex, sweet mysterious scent got into my nose. A 2009 bottle.

For me it was immediately clear, on my next date I'm going to look for the bottle in my parents bedroom.

And so it happened, too. I can remember the countless times I reached for the wonderful bottle to fragrance myself beautifully before I left the house. My date became my girlfriend and with certainty she still associates this fragrance with me today.

When I was 18, I finally bought my own bottle and got a backup bottle of the 2012 collector edition. It was still one of my favorite scents, but the magic somehow diminished with the years.
I never told my father how well he smelled and how much I like his scent. To make up for this, I gave him my full Collector Edition a year ago, because I knew that his 2009 is now empty and he did not buy the new version due to reformulations.
For me this gesture was a way to thank him, because for me personally it was not just a gift. I thanked him from the bottom of my heart and brought him back a piece of "us" and praised him at that moment for his excellent taste.

He doesn't know what this gesture meant to me, one day I might tell him.

La Nuit you are a masterpiece for me like no other fragrance! What you once were is a life story for me, you embody moments that I will take with me to my grave.
This may sound crazy but of all the scents I will take this one to my grave!

Actually factual
Super perfume, Pantydropper, can opener (for cans under 25 years Sauvage, Eros or Herod is to be preferred). I like it, she likes it, my pillow likes it. Cardamom, bergamot, lavender, everything available. Linear course. Sillage inadequate, shelf life on skin mediocre, but on clothes or pillows super, jumps on close contact even from man to woman. My absolute darling, I associate a cool evening with it.

It's got me
I've avoided getting carried away for a long time. And now that I couldn't fight it anymore, I finally got La Nuit de L'homme. And I was afraid... I got it... I kind of fell in love with what I consider to be a masterpiece of olfactory perception art.

I have already made a statement about it, but forgive me, because I don't want to have the scent appreciated with just a few words.

As soon as the fragrance leaves the bottle, I perceive this sensual sweetness, which makes me sniff at myself all the time. I admit... I'm a "if it-it-weeksly-licious-smells-always-on-myself" sniffer.

Strangely enough, I feel the peppery sweetness somehow at the opening and more and more in the further course that the sweetness asserts itself and is accompanied by peppery-spicy. The fragrance, at least in my perception, remains almost constantly delicious until it is completely gone.

Of course I know that with my lines on the durability of La Nuit de L'homme I am not really reinventing the wheel of sad realisation...

This very attractive and very sensual scent is, at least for me, only about 3 hours in total, whereby the last hour is of course only very close.

Anyway... ...busted is busted. Then love must be rekindled every three hours

A question for the ladies and guys out there:
I like the fragrance very much, beautifully spicy and complex, with Spicebomb Extreme best fragrance for Christmas. Would also wear it casual in the cold seasons.

I can absolutely understand that La Nuit is Jeremy's favorite fragrance.

Performance is not so bad on my skin, as some people say, I always get some nice fragrances from time to time. And if you wear the scent on a date, you also want a scent that doesn't scream too loudly.

Now I ask myself the question whether at least a lot of guys don't wear it on the occasion of a date. On a date I don't want to smell like the ex of the lady or any other guy she had a date with.

Good alternatives for a date, which isn't in summer, would be Oud Satin Mood, Spicebomb Extreme or The One (even if it's very common but I love the scent).

Now the question to the guys: did you ever get the comment from La Nuit that you smell like that and that? And to the ladies, how many guys with La Nuit have you smelled?

Perfect for full contact and the way there
I like him, women love him. I prefer to leave the description of the individual notes to the professionals. The fragrance is not excellent in any category, but its erotic effect on women is hard to beat. It is delicious, warm and soft, tastes full pot of cardamom, sweet woody. La nuit does not appeal to a woman's need for an alpha animal, he is more of a picaresque seducer

Fresh spicy opening with bergamot, lavender and cardamom. Then the lavender gets smoother, sweeter, perfectly blended with more spices.

This has got to be one of the smoothest fragrances ever made, I never knew that cardamom can be so alluring and seductive.

The juxtaposition of fresh and warm facets is immaculately done. Comforting, sexy & versatile. The embodiment of sensuality & a perfect DNA.

Spicy, refined, not at all heavy, it's wonderful on my feminine skin too. Very noticeable the cardamom touch. Perfect in the mid-cold season

Dry down is heavenly, very sexy scent. I had a batch from 2022 and it last very long on my skin, projection is not so much.
