Of the currently available the best
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.

This review is an electrifying version of an Eau de Review Intense
I think part of true greatness of character is admitting a mistake when you've made one.

And obviously Yves Saint Laurent have, but so have I with my 1st review on the fragrance. Since YSL apparently try to mend the mistake, I also want to show greatness, and appreciate it.

But let's start vice-versa:
Yves Saint Laurent have made the mistake of refomulating La Nuit de L'Homme (2009).
What does refomulate mean? -
Look for it here in the forum or google it, but in short, when a perfume must be changed in content, because ingredients of it are no longer available / have been banned, or the manufacturer for cost reasons or other reasons, wants to change the formula.

When was the LNDH reformulation?
1. "Ur" version (original version) 2009, dark, sweet and strong
1. Reformulation 2011, fresher but still sow-strong
2. Reformulation 2014, suddenly a shadow of its former self, weak, noticeably smoother.

Since reformulation, YSL have launched a great many alternative versions, so-called "flankers" of the great famous La Nuit de L'Homme, namely:
La Nuit de L'Homme Frozen Cologne
La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum
La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense
La Nuit de L'Homme Eau de Parfum
La Nuit de L'Homme Eau Electrique

These were all, for my taste really good alternatives to the fragrance, but those like me who own the old, unadulterated original know that it nevertheless always remained the king,- and unbeaten the best version of itself!

Again and again were in the reviews and statements of new LNDH Flanker comments that it was "not as good as the original fragrance".

Especially with the "Eau de Parfum", probably many people would have hoped that it is simply a stronger, amplified version of the original. However, YSL as it so often happens, have composed the EdP with completely different notes, which I personally celebrate very much,- the grapefruit with the tons of cardamom just make a completely new, but great smell.

But yes, the old "DNA" remained unfortunately thereby still on the track, the hoped-for satisfaction selbige to experience again in strong, remained out.
Many people saw next to the expensive vintage flacons on the second-hand market the Flanker "Frozen Cologne" as a good alternative, it is but very similar to the "original formula", just a little fresher.

At the 1st testing in the store (so it was also in my 1st comment on the newcomer..) I thought to myself only "Oh, that smells like La Nuit de L'Homme".
At home from shopping, close smelled from the skin, but I suddenly got a strong "Frozen Cologne" impression. In my original review, I then drew cynically about the fact that YSL have only re-bottled the good old Frozen Cologne for base motives...

However, if you own a bottle of it, and wear the fragrance a lot and actively, I think you get a slightly different impression:

It is not Frozen Cologne. I repeat: NOT FROZEN COLOGNE! There is indeed something in it, which reminds one again and again a little bit of it, however, I have the feeling of wearing a vintage version of La Nuit de L'Homme now more and more.

Well, now but the question arises, - WHICH?

Actually, I would like to answer that now after extensive testing with the words of the manufacturer, who writes in the short text to a PR image that illustrates a transition of the classic Eau de Toilette, to the new Bleu Electrique the following:

[ Translated by me into German ]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
La Nuit de L'homme Bleu Electrique is a fresher, more intense version of the Eau de Toilette. The seductive and mysterious warmth of an oriental fragrance. A powerful and contrasting fragrance inspired by the electrifying moment of attraction between two strangers who feel very familiar. Let them ask, "Don't I know you?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think these words clearly show that YSL now actually wanted to bring back good old vintage La Nuit, under the guise of a "Bleu" flanker.
It feels to me that they wanted to make a "main" version of the fragrance, i.e. a fragrance that sort of differentiates itself from the "night" track by alluding to the famous big blues (Bleu de Chanel, Sauvage, etc...) through the "Bleu" predicate, and suggesting to you:

You love La Nuit and want it for the day, in more intense, and a little fresher? This is it. Your LNDH Signature.

And I think they hit the mark pretty well, too. In rewearing it frequently and testing my own bottle, I feel it's pretty close to the vintage 2013-2014 La Nuit, i.e. the 1st reformulation which was still very strong, but a bit fresher and brighter than the Ur version.

The durability and silage are possibly not quite as strong, but after a few hours you still notice it much better than the normal EdT, a veil remains throughout the day. And the scent is a bit rounder than the Vintage 2013, but the impression and the feeling are very congruent for me. It just "feels" the same. :)
Along those lines, I can really recommend this scent to you if you've been craving the vintage version for a long time, but it's not worth all that money to you. I find it far more similar than any clones I've tested of it, no unnecessary chocolate notes or anything....
Also in the A/B test, and judged by others on me, I got the feedback that it is very similar to Vintage + FC anyway.
Think of it vl. as 70% LNDH 2013 + 30% Frozen Cologne, but without that almost bitter "dry ice" accord that Frozen Cologne has.

I give you euretwilen the tip not to judge as hastily as I did, but am all the more eager to hear your opinions on the fragrance.

Thank you YSL for this great perfume! ;)

Untraceable!
Now I have to write something about this too. I have the impression that there are really many people here who have no idea about fragrances. Sorry that I have to say that. But it is so. I even have the impression that here just like to jump on the train of the previous speaker on it, just to say something.

The old La Nuit batch, I'm talking 2011, really has very little to do with this fragrance. The durability and eroticism was untouchable back then. For me personally, the hottest men's fragrance ever. But since the spirits are divided anyway.

Only now people write here, he is back. No, he is not. This fragrance is similar, and then this Blue, like all other YSL fragrances, sinks into oblivion after a short time.

The La Nuit 2011 smelled with me 24 hours on the wrist, without only approaching to become weak.

It is now with some houses the fad to water down the fragrances of yesteryear. Logical consequence, I no longer buy it.

Have fun with this fragrance, but to my old love he really does not come at all

Le roi est mort?
Probably YSL itself does not remember exactly how many flankers of LNDL has made.

One after the other, we, the perfumos have been hoping that finally one will be better or as good as the OG, the pre-reformulation Eau de Toilette.

With Bleu Electrique, YSL bring Eau de Toilette Intense ... which is probably due to the fragrance oil percentage between 5 - 8%, because after that it could be called eau de parfum.

They have added two notes: Ginger and geranium and tonka taken out, it is no longer so sweet and fäng very fresh.

I would say that the king is back, more you can see in my video.
LG,
Raz

The night of the man... in the year 2021?
There is probably no other designer fragrance that has aroused such controversial feelings among perfume lovers in recent years as Yves Saint Laurent's "La nuit de l'homme". Some love it and swear by its seductive magic to make the hearts of womankind beat faster. Others long for the glorious batches of the early years and curse YSL for the numerous reformulations that have made LNDL so you don't really know whether you've sprayed yourself with water or perfume. And yet others are tired of being bombarded with a new flanker from the house of YSL every year.

Every evening I go - just before going to bed - to the closet across from my bed, where I store all the bottlings and samples. Every evening I pick out exactly one bottle that I want to sniff. I review all the memories and thoughts that I associate with the perfume and finally end the day with these impressions. I have remained true to this habit over the last few days. So I stood in front of my closet, looked at my collection and asked myself: Which one should it be today? How about Xerjoff - Alexandria 2? Hmmm noooo.... How about MFK - Grand Soir instead? Hmmm no... Ok, and how about Roja Parfums - Enigma? Nope... No matter how much I thought and tried to force myself to smell another bottle for a change, it didn't work. My eyes kept going only to that one particular atomizer, which was adorned with a bluish concoction from within. The name of this sample?
... La nuit de l'homme bleu electrique...

When I woke up this morning, I couldn't get one question out of my head: what is it about this fragrance that has me so captivated? "I know the fragrance character of La Nuit," I thought to myself. After all, on paper, it looks like there's hardly anything about this flanker that makes it so different from what I knew of the newer LNDL offshoots. But far from it... The thing that intrigued me so much about this release was an almost lost memory of a fragrance that YSL almost single-handedly buried many years ago. The name of that fragrance? La nuit de l'homme...

It almost sounds paradoxical, but.... "La nuit de l'homme bleu electrique" is probably as close to the La nuit of the very first years as it is possible to get. The intangible beauty and allure of cardamom and lavender enhanced LNDL is back. But the fun doesn't stop there. YSL has even gone a step further than just breathing new life into the OG La Nuit. It's almost like they've managed to merge two worlds together: The traditional La Nuit DNA wrapped in a modern garb.... The night of the man in 2021! With the ginger and rose geranium notes, LNDL gains a wonderfully appealing fresh vein that works perfectly with the magic of the cardamom - lavender combo. This fresh vein is what makes LNDL Bleu electrique - for me - more modern than it was the case with the former 2009 release of LNDL.

The durability and sillage are absolutely satisfactory. I had absolutely no problems with perceiving the fragrance up to 8 hours. The projection was ridiculously good for the first 1-2 hours. A friend of mine complimented me on the scent, even though I was about 2 rooms away from her at the time. If one day there is an Edp or Elixir variant of Bleu Electrique (as YSL is also doing with Sauvage), I would have no problem giving this release a full 10 in the "longevity and sillage" categories as well.

To sum it up, the message of my review is: DARE.
All of you who once fell in love with LNDL, but have repressed or forgotten that love: DARE.
For those of you who always wanted to own LNDL but couldn't bring yourselves to buy a bottle because of the creepy reformulation and watering down stories: DARE.

Another YSL release that is boring lavender and/or geranium. This one is the least offensive of the lot. Not worth the hype for me.
