I stumbled across this fragrance a few weeks ago by pure chance. I've been strolling in the miller's valley with a colleague at noon in Munich. Thought you might try some new perfumes. After some scents I thought to myself "OK, nothing that convinces you" and then I said to myself, "that one" still tries now. Purely intuitive. Result: 50 ml Joop Absolute are mine. Now that I'm not the expert at scent decomposition, all I'm saying is, firecracker. Similar to Terre d'Hermes, this scent had something attractive about me. A "I want to smell more" and above all "must have". Try it, you'll feel it. One's yes, the other's no.
