I was able to test it today, the scent is very similar to the discontinued Joop Black King. compared to the pink original, it is very weak and very close. but it is still a great smell and should not be missing in any collection.
Thanks for the update.
That's disappointing. I didn't like Black King much, and your observation that the EDP is very weak. Every Joop flanker I own can't be described as weak. Still - I'm looking forward to testing it.
How times have changed. My Joop Homme aftershave splash from around 2000, when splashed on and worn as a cologne is very potent and lasts about two days. The EDT that was in the same box lasted at least 13 days on my jumper, and about two showers on me.
Sounds like people would have had to wear a hazmat suit around you when you wore the EDT :lolk:. They were great days
I got my bottle of Joop Homme EDP in the mail today.
Comparing it to the powerhouse Joop Homme EDT of 20 years ago (not the current weaker reformulation) I'd say it's a softer version of that EDT. One of the sharp notes in the EDT is missing or very toned down in the EDP. And that old EDT is more powerful than this new EDP after a few hours have elapsed.
If anyone recollects, there used to be lots of comparisons between Joop Homme EDT and Creed Himalaya back then. In a side by side comparison one could esily tell they were different, but from a distance their effect was similar. I think the difference has been narrowed when comparing the new EDP version to Himalaya.
Yes. At least opening notes seemed almost identical. The Creed rep once sprayed Original Santa for me and I screamed "JOOP!" and told her to put it away.I thought it was Creed OS, not Himalaya. But I could be wrong.
You are 100% correct thanks. I've added a correction above.I thought it was Creed OS, not Himalaya. But I could be wrong.
I'd forgotten that, thanks.Many years ago, Renato advised me to try the Aftershave of Joop Homme because the nuclear strength of the EDT was too much for me.
So the weaker reformulation worked for me. And it’s only weaker, not weak, I can still smell it after a shower the following morning!
I got my bottle very inexpensively from Amazon's sale last week.Will also be likely interested in this, having so far liked most of its other previous flankers (including the Joop Homme Wild one, in terms of both performance and of actual scent)
