It was in 1961, after having worked for Christian Dior, that Yves Saint Laurent founded his fashion house. From then on, he imposes his vision of things. He challenges and shocks public opinion on several occasions. First of all, when he posed nude for his first perfume “Pour Homme”. Then, because of “Rive Gauche”, came out the same year which clearly encourages women to free themselves from their shackles. It was in 2009 that YSL presented “La Nuit de l’Homme”, a masculine fragrance that couldn’t be more sensual. In 2015 an intense version will appear.
La Nuit de l’Homme, masculine seduction in its purest form
As its name suggests, “La Nuit de l’Homme” can be worn after dark. Where everything begins, where everything becomes permitted, where seduction imposes its own codes. Intriguing and mysterious, the YSL man arouses astonishment. “La Nuit de l’Homme” follows on from “L’Homme” released in 2006. This fragrance was simply the olfactory embodiment of male virility. “The Man” is not only a rare juice, but it is also ultra precious, and represents at the same time the past, the present and the future of the man. “La Nuit de l’Homme” is in the same vein, while pushing sensuality to its paroxysm. Its “light / dark” game and its contrasts bewitch women, making them dependent on the masculine fragrance. “The Night of Man” intrigues, but irresistibly attracts. Halfway between virility and sensuality,
The contrasting notes of La Nuit de l’Homme
These are three talented perfumers who are at the origin of this dark and sensual composition, namely Anne Flipo, Dominique Ropion and Pierre Wargnye. “La Nuit de L’Homme” opposes the lively freshness of citrus fruits and the liveliness of spices. If the fragrance begins with the fresh notes of bergamot, it is indeed contrasted with cardamom. In the heart, lavender and an aromatic accord, juxtaposed with the woody notes of Atlas Cedar. The base becomes sensual with the presence of coumarin and vetiver. The bottle uses the main codes of its elders. It perfectly reflects the graphic codes expressed by the brand and revealing the virility of Man. The soft cylindrical glass is enhanced by a cabochon dressed, for the occasion, in lacquered black. The perfect transparency of the glass gives a glimpse of a suave nectar offering a slight gradient. The whole gives a very virile bottle.
After “L’Homme”, a very virile masculine fragrance, “La Nuit de l’Homme” reveals the extreme sensuality, that of the strong and virile man. The composition and the bottle play on contrasts. Between softness and strength, the notes are exhilarating and radiant with sensuality.
