The details

La Nuit De l’Homme translates into ‘The Night of the Man’ and the name is quite fitting for the product; it is a woody, spicy, and flora-dominant fragrance launch by the great Yves Saint Laurent in 2009. The noses behind this perfume are Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo, and Pierre Wargnye.


The accords of the fragrance are very simple yet luxurious. The top note includes cardamom whereas the middle notes include tangy bergamot, a sweet and woody lavender, and smoky and woodsy Virginia cedar. Lastly, the base note includes vetiver and caraway which diffuse an earthy, leathery, and spicy scent.

Longevity of smell

Typically most users have agreed that the performance of the perfume is impressive, given the fact that it is an EDT (a type of perfume that is inoffensive, less intense, soft, and usually dissipates between 6 to 10 hours). This particular perfume easily lasts for six hours when you put it on your clothes and have a sillage of about two to three hours which is very impressive.

Bottle design

The scent is encased in a cylindrical transparent body that has a hexagonal black cap. It is available in three different bottle sizes; 40 ml, 60 ml, and 100 ml.


The product has some of the most powerful ingredients that are loved by most men around the world. The scent is subtle but strong enough to make head turns wherever you go. It has spiciness from the cardamom and caraway, tanginess from the bergamot, and floral, woody, and earthy smells from cedar, vetiver, and lavender.

Final verdict

The fragrance can be described as divine, delicate, and appealing that smells sweet, powdery, and fresh when you wear it. After a few hours, the woody base notes become more prominent and they can last from anywhere between six to 12 hours.
