A fresh bergamot top note combined with cardamom radiates an almost electric energy. A potent sensation of energy, as central as a universe in perpetual motion. The verticality of incense is exalted by a harmony of orchid, a sexual and fascinating flower whose varieties and color forms evoke so well the multiple facets of the Yves Saint Laurent woman. The skin turns to the divine and divinity. The oliban base remains unsettling. Dense, essential sensuality, a live and mysterious force.

Ratings & Reviews
Nu is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My beloved Nu I don`t care, whether the smell is stronger or lighter or how long it lasts... I have one bottle of this new Nu now and I just love it, as much as I loved the old, original version, which I have used dozens and dozens in previous decades. It`s my signature perfume as people say and I was feeling desperate when my favourite perfume was discontinued. So I`m just happy that YSL has this new Nu now. My only concern is- will it be permanently in assortment or just YSL limited edition, available for short period?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still a good scent This NU is similar to the 2001 version. However the original parfum spray had a longer lasting scent. This newer version only lasts about an hour, and the previous one lingered all day!

Saks Fifth Avenue has 5 stores in the USA that sell Nu, including NYC & Boca Raton, FL. I love the scent, but only began using it in 2014--now I'd love to smell/experience the original Nu!! I find that the scent lingers longer than many other perfumes I've worn (the least lasting being Jo Malone, which is a shame as I adore some of her citrus scents).

Hello,...

Hello, could you please give an information about YSL NU perfume in pastel package. How different is it from NU of 2001 y in dark blue package?
Asked by: Anonymous
The original Nu EDP was in the silvery pink metallic round "puck" packaging. The EDT was packaged in the transparent blue bottles in a variety of sizes. The bath and body range was also packaged in this transparent blue packaging as well. I have yet to try the "new" Nu. I have hoarded the original for many many years. I actually still have a Nu black candle in its original packaging waiting for the right time to open it! I'm hoping the "new" Nu does not disappoint me.

hi, i'm looking for the old version of nu, the eau de perfume. do you know where i could get 3 or 4 bottles of this scent?
Asked by: OritA
I bought the old version bit eBay. Wouldn't do it again. When you buy an old fragrance, it doesn't have the great smell anymore and also fades within no time. I found it's a wase of money to track down the old one from years ago....

When did YSL see the light and bring back this amazing fragrance? I just happened to key in Nu out of curiosity.

I was thrilled to discover the availability of Nu on the YSL website! It's one of my all time favorite fragrances (during winter) and I haven't been able to find it in stores. Keep it coming! I'm surprised it's a "sleeper" of a fragrance -- I consistently receive compliments when I wear it.

Asked by: vikkim
It smells the same to me but not nearly as concentrated, and more expensive. I am still happy it is back but miss the old version, I can only find it online in the states, stores don't seem to stock it in the US.

Has anyone gotten a bottle yet? I remember the old scent and wonder if this is identical.

I have 5 1/2 bottles of the original formulation (in the silver disk) and one full bottle in the blue. This new release doesn't even compare to the Nu of old. I was truly disappointed yet ever so thankful that I still had my stash of the original. I don't understand why such masterpieces are toyed with a ruined. It's such a shame because the original was a true beauty.

Glad to see I am not the only one feeling let-down by the new Nu. There is simply no comparison! The original was soft and sensual and now it is harsh. This is the second time they have done this. Opium used to be devine. Why change something that was so beautiful. What about your loyal original customers?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely agree. The original was so beautiful. The scent stayed in your skin for hours. Five to six hours after putting it on, my boyfriend used to say that I still smelled fabulous. Now the scent dissipates in no time. Why this beautiful scent was changed is beyond me. Please bring back the original NU Yves Saint Laurent!
