Joop - Swoke
It's common knowledge by now that companies are often too cowardly to launch completely new fragrances, names and shapes - but in my head that's still only partly true. "Joop Homme Absolute" is another candidate that has little, if anything, to do with its pink original scent, which could easily have been marketed under a new address. No must. For example under my headline, casual and crisp and catchy for sweet smoke. Joopies - call me ;-)
All joking aside, what can this heavy black man do, under any title whatsoever?! A lot. For example, I'm very convincing. And not only me, it seems. "Swo... uh soory, "Joop Homme Absolute" of course, is a dark representative (oh what) of incense and (peppery) spice. "Sweet, warm, cuddly smoke. Not sticky, rather solid and earthy. Straightforward and reliable. Certainly also a good bit boring, but on a high level. It remains true to its line, has only a real fragrance phase. But it is nice. Soft and powerful at the same time, difficult to describe. Just don't expect any surprises or development. Campfire, pepper mill, cuddle blanket, autumn, forest, wood, cashmeran. A pleasant mixture, homogeneous and monotonous.
Flacon: black & beautiful (even if a bit clumsy)
Sillage: quite flat & very close to me
Shelf life: 6 hours and up
Conclusion: soft, beautiful, sweet and never sticky - a (more than?) solid Joop. Although not a Joop Homme.
