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.

karin m: The smell is very similar but not as intense and it does not stay long. The new NU fades quickly. Never happend with the original one.
Still, I love the smell and just reapply more often now.

Maria N: I think it's very similar (the lighter packaging does not allude to a "lighter" fragrance, it is the same scent). I do think I was more enthralled with the original partly due to the packaging and Tom Ford's fragrances being so new to the average nose at the time. If you liked the original I would recommend it.

BHEXIII: 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!

In my opinion the original EDP is considerably more rich than the EDT. I tried the EDT once but did not feel it had the depth, intensity or longevity of the EDP.

I'm hoping the "new" Nu does not disappoint me.

A shopper asked: 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? Jun 28, 2012

Kathleen V: 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! Jun 28, 2012

Juli L: 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.

Jo F: Jo F - Tom Fords - Black Orchid is very very similar to this, I have a bottle and I love it I also have both the Blue bottle and Silver container and people tell me the blue bottle smells stronger then the silver, hope this helps a little Aug 21, 2012

Klara U: The fragrance is the same but it does not last as long as the original in the round silver container. I did not like the round container as it leaked and fell apart. However, I did prefer the longer lasting scent.

karin m: 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.... Jun 29, 2014

Tali A: 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.

Sandra B asked: When is YSL going to bring back the original Nu? You actually had the perfect product and women AND men who love your fragrances would have embraced this fragrance over time.

Sorry, but the new version is simply not to the standard as the previous was and if you value your customers, I return to the original packaging and relaunch it. You had a HIT on your hands and simply didn't know it.

Please reconsider!

Nu

Overall rating

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!
