La Nuit de l’Homme: YSL’s perfume that plays with lights to fascinate us

Yves Saint-Laurent creates with the help of 3 sizes of perfumery, a contrasting and captivating fragrance, signed with an image deliberately chic but obscure and captivating …

When the night offers its mysterious powers: “The Night of Man”

Reinterpreting an original perfume such as “The Man” released in 2006 was necessarily a daring gamble. It was necessary to transpose a new universe, a new image much more obscure and elusive than the original juice while not disappointing the followers. Anne Flipo, Dominique Ropion, Pierre Wargnye, three great noses of current perfumery, were commissioned to offer a deep and captivating fragrance to Yves Saint-Laurent while retaining the elegance of the first juice: a bet won, “La Nuit de L’Homme ”Was born in 2009 for our greatest pleasure.

Of course, in order to represent this obscure image of a” luminous “man, which character would have been better suited than the handsome and dark Vincent Cassel to be the muse of this “Night of Man”? Thus the visuals and advertisements will take place in overplayed black and white to create aesthetic and elegantly retro lighting effects. Thanks to its first muse, the perfume has a “face”, a personality apart… The muses of “La Nuit de l’Homme” who will succeed Vincent Cassel, Garrett Hedlund and Vinnie Woolston, will also offer beautiful dualities between charms of irreverent beauty and the dark eye of a tender-hearted seducer with whom any man could identify.

“La Nuit de l’Homme” or the fragrance of a modern man with many facets

Each Yves Saint-Laurent perfume reflects one of the facets of his character. “The Night of the Man” is of course a vibrant tribute to the complex and modern masculinity of a Man who wants to be playful and charming while being sensitive and secret, deeply “dark”.

The bottle is therefore in the image of the dualities of the fragrance: the shades of black of the thick and fleshy bottle evoke the elegance of a smocking but also the chiaroscuro of a virility not always easy to wear. As for the nut-shaped cap or the shape of the bottle, they of course refer to the first opus “The Man” which used the very trendy industrial side to propagate images of modernity.

Obviously, when discovering “La Nuit de l’Homme”, it would be difficult not to expect striking contrasts and olfactory surprises. Cardamom and bergamot from the first head notes are enveloping and spicy while being fresh and delicate. The lavender heart note brings the powers of its aromatic and flowery scent while continuing to diffuse freshness and tonic and invigorating accords. It is the sensual and woody base notes of vetiver and cedar embellished with coumarin and cumin that will certainly surprise our bewitched senses the most.

The composition of “La Nuit de l’Homme”, both fresh and spiced up with luxurious and original spices mixed with powerfully woody and animal notes, offers multiple visions of masculinity. It is exactly the type of warm and sensual virility associated with fresh sweets that stick to the skin and faces of modern and assertive men, tender and daring, charming as in love, dark and luminous …

In 2009, Yves Saint Laurent presented “La Nuit de l’Homme”. Both sensual and very masculine, this new fragrance follows on from “L’Homme” released in 2006 and will be the start of an ultra virile collection. “The Night of Man” is the new weapon of male seduction. As the brand wanted to create a virile and mysterious essence, the composition of “La Nuit de l’Homme” plays on contrasts. To do this, Yves Saint Laurent combines the invigorating freshness of citrus fruits with the strength of spices, all contained in a very masculine bottle.

The Night of Man, a “chiaroscuro” composition

“The Night of the Man” is an essence constructed while in opposition, which likes to play the contrasts between hot and cold, light and dark. In fact, the composition of “La Nuit de l’Homme” has been particularly well structured and offers a fragrance of rare olfactory richness. Attractive, but also ultra mysterious, “La Nuit de l’Homme” juxtaposes very contradictory tones such as lavender and cedar, bergamot and cardamom, vetiver and coumarin. Halfway between sensuality and virility, “La Nuit de L’Homme” surprises with its unexpected olfactory associations, but so addictive.

The ultra sensual notes of La Nuit de l’Homme

“La Nuit de l’Homme” is defined as a woody-floral musk. While the composition surprises and intrigues, it nonetheless leaves an ultra sensual trail. We owe this exceptional composition to three renowned perfumers, namely Anne Flipo, Dominique Ropion and Pierre Wargnye. “La Nuit de l’Homme” begins with the freshness of bergamot, but this is quickly enhanced by cardamom. The heart juxtaposes lavender, a very aromatic note, and Atlas cedar, offering woody tones. Finally, the base is ultra sensual and oscillates between vetiver and coumarin. All facets of modern man are found in the octagonal-top bottle of “La Nuit de l’Homme”, which is tinted black for the occasion. The bottle uses the main codes of its predecessor “L’Homme”. The color of its nectar is as mysterious as the composition since it offers a sumptuous shade of gray / black that is both transparent and opaque.

After “L’Homme”, Yves Saint Laurent imagined “La Nuit de L’Homme”. If seduction is still very important there, “La Nuit de L’Homme” offers more mystery and an infinite virility. Unpublished, the composition of “La Nuit de L’Homme” plays on the contrasts of materials. Between light and dark, the notes of “La Nuit de L’Homme” are halfway between sensuality and virility.
