Sweet? Yes! Bad? Nope!
Of course, this fragrance is sweet, it is even very sweet, and as is often the case with sweet fragrances, it is often worn by those who don't quite get it right with the dosage. But actually it's only these people who stand out and miss the scent of such a negative image - in this case the so-called "slut image" -, isn't it? There are also enough people who leave it at two or three spray strokes, do not attract negative attention and present positive examples, but about which one cannot get so heartily upset. It's not for nothing that people always remember the bad rather than the positive, and maybe that's the case with this fragrance too.

"Joop! Homme" is, like "Le Male", a part of my childhood memories. My father wore it, partly until he was 40 years old, although it is always said that this one is only for the younger people. Well, I don't think so. This sweetness can also look very mature when combined with an appropriate appearance and clothing style - of course always under the condition of the right dosage.
The sweetness I mentioned is not such a sticky sweetness, which is not seldom typical for today's winter candidates. Everything begins with a discreetly fruity opening, which is marked by the mandarin. I also hear orange blossom, which expresses itself discreetly floral and somewhat bitter. However, this only lasts for a short time and immediately takes a back seat to the mandarin.
The reason why I characterize this sweetness as not too sticky has to do with the heliotrope integrated in the Hernote. This is supposed to be a mineral that smells powdery - I googled a bit once. In combination with the cinnamon I now hear a slightly spicy powdery sweetness, whereby "Joop! Homme" more than deserves the adjective "oriental". Unlike other winter fragrances like "Stronger with You", you don't have to be afraid of tonka beans and vanilla. They skilfully underline the already existing sweetness with their soft and supple presence. Patchouli can also be smelt out, even if only occasionally. A very minimal green herbaceousness temporarily relaxes the fragrance experience, but usually disappears again after only a few seconds.
Let's talk about seconds, let's go over and talk about the hours that the scent on the skin lasts. Here I can say that the performance for an "eau de toilette" is really remarkable. Although the product has been on the market for ages and the recipe has certainly been tinkered with many times before, it cannot be said that it has been watered down, which, on the other hand, has fallen victim to many other fragrance classics in the course of the product life cycle. With two splashes you can easily get through the day and you don't have to be afraid not to be noticed. If one adheres to this rule, then one is perhaps perceived more positively than many overdosers.

...Ludenbomber..
Kalle, in certain situations also called Ralle!, is a lude from Recklinghausen who goes up to 4 times a week under the Ghettotoaster. Sitting broad-legged in front of his "line", occasionally grasping his hand at his crotch, he whistles after every little ug that sneaks past him. "Hey, doll, stop right there!" he's groaning after him. His hydrogen blonde mulcow hairstyle is always top styled. His 585 gold chain dangles around his wide neck, which connects to his torrero bull neck. Always a close look at his left arm, where his Rolex Daytona platinum prances casually. Chewing gum, he throws a big grin at his buddy: "Club, what day?"

Kalle gets up and marches on string tracks with his pump jogging pants and the fine-ribbed shirt into his boot and checks the situation. He reaches over the counter, sips his protein shake and takes another few splashes of his "Prinzporno-Wässerchens", from which he feels he has a bottle in every room of his establishment.
Top motivated he slaps off his buddy, sits down on his fire chair and shoots off. His hair is smashing on his solarium-tanned skin.

In no time at all he is at the lake, where his fire stool settles in the coarse-grained sand. No topic for Kalle, he extends the stand, parks the hot oven, takes a running start, shouts: "BOOmmBeeeee", and claps like a Germanic foundling on the water surface. Broad grinning he appears, his posse is already crouching on the shore laughing: "Ham is waiting for you, RAALLLEEE!" Who thinks, the towel comes now... no Kalle dieselt himself first and rubs himself dry with the hands and Homme - why a towel. The heliotrope cinnamon vanilla bomb is spreading all over the gravel ball. "Kalle!", shrine them all: "You're the greatest!", Kalle grins and lets herself be celebrated.....

For me one of the most crude (in the positive sense) fragrances of the late 80s and 90s. Here something was created, which did not exist in the form yet and does not really exist until today. You have to dare him - not for everyone - but unfortunately, I find him just skilful.

the only downside is it says "Joop" on it. I had to wait on that pompous guy at the hotel. here I don't continue writing, otherwise it is still called "slander"...
All in all a milestone of this time and an evergreen

A good classic or just too sweet???
I came across the scent because it is quite cheap and I had noticed it on the streets several times before. At that time I found the scent quite good...
However, after some testing I noticed that the fragrance is just very sweet, which I ignore on some days when I'm in a good mood because it gives me a great spring feeling and takes me back to an earlier time that I like to relive. But there are also days when I don't like the fragrance very much: so it's a question of my attitude.
I am aware that there are many out there who don't like this scent and even as a student I don't wear it in university so as not to torture others.
So to go back to the title question again: yes and yes. At the same time it is a good classic, but also unsuitable in certain situations and just too sweet.
The durability with me is even quite good for the price.

I'm still alive
I'm only 30 years old and I'm still a headstrider. As soon as I enter the room, you look at me and twist your eyes. I'm just extraverted, need regular confirmation of my presence. Jealousy lets me stay among you for hours without the slightest sign of weakness.
Ncnc you think just because I'm easy to have and appear in pink, I can't keep up with your partners? They all went down in my heavy and sweet presence, couldn't even counteract anything.
I don't need ISO-E, ambergris or frankincense to change your mood and yet over time I had to go to the plastic surgeon to follow the trend. They said it would make me better to be "synthetic."... but it wasn't.
Now I stand here before you in the same garment, inwardly contemporary adapted and radiate like before one and the same: No one escapes me!

Light jeans, Golf 2 with bassbox and Techno
First congratulations to Michel Almairac and JOOP, this fragrance has been selling for 30 years now. Madness.

I don't want to tell big stories, everybody knows the scent anyway... have a vintage Lancaster version from the late 90s... all the early bottles had a cornflower on them, but the content is the same as far as I know. Also have a current bottle from 2018.
The vintage is of course much more blatant, the fragrance looks fuller and denser, has a slightly "bitter" note which the 2018 doesn't have and the performance is also much stronger. But the 2018 is still good and sufficient. The Vintage causes me unfortunately some rash, against something I am probably allergic, what is there in it.
But back to the title. Joop Homme is THE party fragrance of the 90s. My uncle told me that everybody had Joop Homme back then... on the weekend to the discos where typically Techno, House and Eurodance were played... doesn't want to know how it stunk there with all the vintage perfumes with mega performance and the young people typically overdosed... and smoked was also still. The music was louder than today because there were not so many laws and restrictions at that time... well, it's pretty crazy today, but that's the way it was. So if you want to go back in time you should get Joop Homme or Joop Nightflight, alternatively CK Obsession or CK Eternity. According to my uncle, these were the most used fragrances among the young people at that time.

Disappointed father the 2.
Like Fahrenheit, my father got this gift from his boss this time in the early 90s. Same situation as Fahrenheit once used and back to Azzaro! So I would have free hand :D and I did not like the little boy and he wandered for years in the closet! So about 2002 I came out again with a tender 18 and give it to him! Since then never bought until last year I began to serve my perfume passion completely and finally! Find the new one smells more like kids Em Eukal (cough sweets cherry) which I used to like but definitely not so strong the association ! H&S are still above average but definitely a bit more in the past! I like him very crazy even in summer :D but not a candidate for every day but today it was time again!

One of the best existing fragrances
First of all, like JuicyG, this is my first comment on a fragrance. There's a lot to be said about Joop! Homme. But you don't have to say much to him, he is one of the most successful fragrances (I think) ever and probably will be for a while. He polarizes, of course, but wouldn't that be the case, wouldn't he probably get so much attention or "attract attention"? You can smell it relatively often, mostly with young men and mostly overdosed, no matter in which situation, but THIS should in my opinion not lower his ratings. It is ideal for celebrating and also suitable for everyday use in the cold season. Who doesn't know the scent yet or knows it, but doesn't want to wear it in order not to be put into a drawer, I recommend to give it a chance anyway. Joop! homme is just like for example One Million a hammer smell, but unfortunately his image had to suffer from all the (mostly young) men who don't know how to dose A and in which situation B should fire it (bad metaphor, I know). I wear it now and then because I find it horny and feel comfortable with it, on it gesch
whether half the world carries him.
Finally, I can say that it is really a pity how often this has been reformulated. With my mid 20s I only know the current Homme, but I got a sample of the vintage version sent to me and it felt like it stuck to me for a week. Thanks for your attention

Warm, warmer, Joop! homme
So many bad comments on this scent, I don't quite understand. One of the best when it comes to performance. Best to wear in winter, 2 sprayers and you feel directly 4-5 degrees warmer. Women don't have a problem with that either, some have already said that they prefer to smell it on me. And since it gives a certain warmth, women prefer to hang on to you in winter. Durability goes loosely up to 8 hours, no working fragrance, because my colleague likes him so much there's trz. also something in the office :D. Sillage also perceptible at a very good distance. My favorite scent for the winter. Christmas market = Top. And at this price, you don't do anything wrong. Please don't get too much Hate, that was my first comment

Candy for men
For three decades Wolfgang Joop and Michel Almairac have pulled a prank on men all over the world with a fragrance that smells feminine, looks pink and comes in a bottle of nail polish. Since the juice is great the joke's on them.

Joop Homme is an intoxicatingly sweet fragrance that for most men belongs in the "love or hate" category. Its scent could be described as fruity lollipop, artificially flavored candy or cough syrup strawberry; it is a unique, practically unisex 90s icon for the sweet-toothed or one to avoid for those who prefer their perfumes to be masculine, discreet or understated. Still, Joop Homme can be a lot of fun in the right setting and weather –cold–, and its excellent performance will make heads turn for good or bad.

tl;dr: an intense bubblegummy trip worth experiencing at least once.

A classic that probably never disappears.
Joop Homme, almost 30 years old and thus older than me~but the scent has it in it.
Everyone must have smelled it before, it's still so popular today. While I for example with OneMilion after not even 10 years already becomes bad...

Yes, the fragrance was reformulated, but thank God he still has such a great performance, which used to be even better! 9 hours are on my skin, on the fragrance strip it sticks for 4 days.

With this fragrance you can't even describe what you can smell...:), at least really sweet, (before the reformulation slightly more fruity), after a while it smells somehow like honey, but still excellent! And never stabbing.

I would definitely wear this fragrance in winter, in the evening, and some people wear it in summer and then it gets a bit unpleasant for their fellow men, because it is so incredibly sweet and heavy.

My conclusion: An evergreen in the colder seasons, sweet, heavy.
For 30€ á 30ml not expensive, lasts +9h, and is simply a really successful fragrance, which will certainly still be worn in 10 years!

Not a fan
It cannot be stressed enough that this is a love or hate fragrance. To me, the floral notes come across very synthetic. I get a very strong heliotrope scent with orange, cinnamon, tonka and vanilla, it is overly sweet in my opinion.

The saving grace of the fragrance is the longevity and the sillage, it lasted a good 12 hours and this stuff can easily overpower anything if you put too much on so it's definitely a case of less is more with this fragrance.

True men don't wear pink
Joop Homme a classic among men's perfumes known by all social classes. Despite his age I smell him still very often, but rather at somewhat more mature men at the age of 50+. Often the perfume is then overdosed exorbitantly so that one can already develop an aversion to the fragrance. For a while I couldn't smell the scent at all, neither on myself nor on anyone else. The reactions of the ladies have never been particularly positive when I wore the pink Joop, often there were even dislikes against it.

The scent itself is very flowery, the prelude reminds me of my childhood cough syrup. It had a similar color and tasted very sweet raspberry cherry-like. That holds however only approx. one minute afterwards the flowers strike fully like a large bouquet of flowers in which I keep my nose pure. Pretty daring for a gentleman's scent, but he's still got something. Fits just perfectly in the Glam Rock time in which he came on the market. At the end the flowers retreat a little and he gets sweeter by the tonka bean and vanilla, whereby I still like the base the least.

I think you should definitely test it before you test the other flankers which are usually worse than the original.
If you want to be (real) men, you better wear something else. Conditionally recommended for dates because it often infects younger or older women. For party nevertheless to recommend there he brutal. long keeps with me loosely around the 10 hours. But please do not wear it at Ü50 parties because every second has to dodge then better on something else

Classic, classy legend...
Though I own Joop! Homme for a long time, I just thought of reviewing him, stimulated by another similar (for me) perfum that I just bought. From the start, I should add that i don't own or owned the vintage formulation of this. Just the current. My bottle is from a batch of 2016.
Joop! Homme is a unique perfume. Original and bold, brilliant and rebellious. Joop! Homme is the thing that brings warmth in a winter story strewn with colours, joy, good pleasure and dancing.
Its opening is for me very, very similar to Bogart Pour Homme, smoky cherries and tonka, sweet cherries for Joop and sour ones for Bogart. The drydown is different, but both keep the cherry accord until the end.
In drydown Joop! Homme loses gradually but not totally the cherries and increases the smokiness and mixes with it a melange of cinnamon, vanilla and jasmine. Indeed, it's sweet, but what a classy sweetness!
We complain that fragrances have a synthetic smell in a world where all things have become synthetic? However, Joop! Homme does not seem to me smelling synthetic.
The perfume deserve its place between (living) classic legends.
The performances are very good, especially the longevity. The projection I didn't find it so monstrous, but rather moderate. It does project very good, but only in first 1-2 hours, then it settles down.
Smell 10/10 (for uniqueness)
Longevity 9/10
Sillage 8/10
Performances/price ratio 10/10
Overall 9.5/10
That means HIGHLY recommended, I love it!

wild and seductive
I have recently known this fragrance and from the moment I smelled it I was conquered. I am addicted to Opium pour homme and I have never found anything similar, until now, and I do not mean that they smell similar, but, to the fact that he has been able to conquer me.

In the beginning it is a caramelized smell with citrus touches, then it goes to something more floral maintaining the sweet touches at the beginning, to end with the softness of the vanilla and some cinnamon. I am not an expert but it is what smells on my skin, a pleasant aroma of cherry lollipops.

Extreme longevity and wake, it lasts on my skin for more than 12 hours and on clothes lasts up to whole days.

Magnificent perfume, without exceeding, with two pulsations you have perfume to spare.

Sorry for my bad english.

Certainly out there for the time.
When my man friend turned up in the early '90s wearing Joop! I wondered why he had decided to wear a woman's perfume. Powdery, sweet, floral soaps and bath oils. It was certainly very different to the usual stuff that men wore.

Puzzlement aside I really liked the smell and bought the Joop! Woman which I didn't end up liking and which was not so feminine smelling to me.

I still tinker with the idea of buying myself a little bottle of Joop! to see if I still think it smells as sweet and powdery but I don't really want to be reminded too much of him so probably won't.

#ComingOutFragrance #TheMenWhoDare
First of all, I have no prejudices, anyone has the right and liberty to live its life no matter what other people think or say. That being said, to me in the late 80's and early 90's JOOP! Homme was the 'coming out' fragrance. With the whole fragrance's world oriented towards aquatic scents, like Kenzo Homme and Issey Miyake l'Eau, Joop! Homme was a kind of like different, and oriental spicy cologne. I love it for the many memories of incredible house clubs and clubbings of that time, the majority of the guys in there were wearing this juice. I consider it a masterpiece, yet it is my 'guilty pleasure' when I go out and it makes me feel 20 again... I am kidding, of course-

I met Joop! Homme when it was released in 1989. I was waiting for my flight back to Milan at the Munich airport and I came across it while visiting the dutyfree shop. Initially, I was intrigued by the purple juice and the brand, Joop wasn't that famous in my country, so I gave it a try on a paper strip. A bomb of sweet-spicy aroma reached my nostril, orange blossom and cannella were surely contributing to that initial blast!
Right off the bat, I thought it was too strong for me, not in my comfort zone, so I gave it up and did not buy. Nevertheless, I kept the strip in my jacket's pocket, and during the entire flight, and even the day after, the pleasant bittersweet smell reached my nose.
I didn't care about it anymore until one night I was clubbing with some friends of mine, and on the dance floor I was overwhelmed by an intriguing and mysterious aura, so bitter and dark, floral, and I asked my mate "Dude, can you smell that beauty scent in the air?", "Yes, I guess it is Joop!". Oh man, I am afraid I cannot describe the marvelous and amazing scent I was smelling. You know what? That grace was part of my wardrobe the very next time I traveled to Munich!

The first thing that I want to say about Joop! is that it is not a girly or even unisex type of fragrance, albeit a lot of women wear it. This one is highly masculine and sexually charged. In short, it is the type of cologne you want to wear out to a bar or club, not because it’s over the top, but because it is an attention and compliment getter.
The masculine bouquet comes from the great spicy and woodsy notes while it does have a sweet undercurrent thanks to the heliotrope, jasmin, and honeysuckle notes. However, as the time goes by, the sweet notes start to take center stage and the fragrance mellows out into a softer, bitter, and clean scent. Joop! is also a long-lasting cologne so there is no need to worry about it quitting on you after an hour of wear. It is a strong cologne, so, not too much is needed for the desired effect.

This time I don't feel like writing a thing about how and what it smells like, I think there are many here and there. Rather, depending on your personal preference you might like it, love it or quite possibly dislike it but I seriously doubt anybody could hate this stuff. For the price you pay, you get brilliant performance. Unmistakably, this is great for a colder weather. I'm talking Italian cold, and this scent is comforting and alluring when sprayed judiciously. Joop! pour Homme is typically for the metrosexual men and no disrespect to the ones who aren't but just that this is a more casual, loud scent.

Looking for anything serious? Try elsewhere.

A woody white flower
People said it was "sweet" and with a cherry scent, then I expected it to be fruity sweet.

But it somehow managed to surprise me.
It's a "flower" sweet type, with a woody touch, which goes out a little strange in the first 20 minutes, but gets really good after that.

Sillage and longetivity were good as people say on my skin too! Enormous!

S(h)ort of cherries...
Have you ever heard "Cherry Bomb" by The Runaways?

"Hey, street boy, want some style?
Your dead end dreams don't make you smile.
I'll give you something to live for.
Have you and grab you until you're sore."

Lita Ford and Joan Jett (long before start sweating in leather pants) along with Cherie(!) Currie were surely some sort of punk seers back in 1976 when the song was released. For their "Cherry Bomb" finally came. And it absolutely delivered!
Joop! was unleashed in 1989 and blew every oakmoss stronghold and vetiver fortress to smithereens.
To the point that half of the next decade will always be the "Cherry Chronicles" for many of us who were around twenty back then.
I can still remember the way that sometimes by entering a cafe you could swear that everyone inside had just finished smoking a pipe the size of a didgeridoo stuffed with cherry tobacco.
But you know what? No cherries were used in building the damn thing's pyramid!
Since internet with its detailed notes pyramids was not around when Joop! entered the scene, imagine my surprise when I found out about the "no cherries" thing many years later.
So where the hell do all these orchards come from? What kind of olfactory sorcery made them thrive? What spell transmuted three brown spices, vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom, into a claret fruit? Were the acidic citruses the catalyst for bringing this chicanery to life? Help!
Let alone that none of its ingredients could justify its hellish hue, which makes it one of the very few fragrances that its colour tempts me to quaff it.
But the most amazing thing about it was it being a very serious joke in all its potential to apply its suffocating sweetness with a sledgehammer. Very few fragrances since then have equaled its epic sillage and longevity and I don't think that any has surpassed them.
Its bottle had always the strange ability to look like it constantly craved a brawl, assuring you that "Joop!" was the sound that its fist would make when landing on your face. Probably inside a pink balloon, all comics-style and stuff. And patching you up afterwards, since it also had a medical degree, being the first graduate of a yet to be founded academy. The one that would create the medicinal genre in the following years.
But who didn't love any variation of the archetypical toxic-pink, cherry flavoured cough syrup as a kid? It was so yummy that many of us ocassionally pretended a sore throat, in order to slake our addiction.
No wait, this sounded wrong somehow. I'm not talking codeine-laden cough syrups here. No, not that kind of addiction. I'm just talking about the sensuous phantasmagoria that pharmaceutical companies had come with, so that kids would drink their stuff without any Ancient Greek Drama antics. Being Greek, I and my compatriot toddlers were always inherently good in such stuff.
I just can't remember if it was the medicine that made me love the smell of cherries or vice versa. But I guess it doesn't matter anymore. Sweet medicines casting sweet memories, rekindled by sweet scents. Joop! in a nutshell...
Thus being addicted to it was an one-way street, and I'll be eternally thankful to these nice people in Germany who thought that the world was getting boring and decided to do something about it.
Ignore the fact that I always loved to hate it and it hated to love me. Sure thing is that neither of us could live without wrangling a bit every once in a while.

I don't know whether something can be categorised under a label that didn't exist when it came out. Thus I don't know if Joop! could qualify as a gourmand. However, what it certainly qualifies for is the title for the one of the loudest entries ever this side of the Big Bang.

Superlative sweetness!
It's all about vanilla and cinnamon.

Powerful sweet bomb, almost hazardous sillage and lasting power. Smells very synthetic.

I think there are better scents like this nowadays.

Good longevity is good. Nuclear longevity?
Every few months I make the same mistake. While on a trip to either Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, I stop by TJMaxx and take a gander at the perfume aisle. This has become quite dangerous in 2013, as my New Year's Resolution is not to purchase any new bottles until I've reviewed everything in my home. Yet again, upon my arrival, I espied a 100 ml bottle of Penhaligon's VIOLETTA beckoning me to buy. It was there two weeks ago, and I almost succumbed to the temptation then. Today it was easier to walk on by, as it is clear that TJMaxx customers are not big fans of Penhaligon's. So now I know that it's going to be sitting there quite a while longer, and at some point be marked down to an even more absurdly low price. But none of this was the mistake to which I referred above.

No, the mistake I make every so often is recklessly to test one of the fragrances on its way out of the store in a price-slashed gift set previously opened by some other curious customer. Every time I do this, I end up with spritzer's remorse. Today's selection: Joop! JOOP! HOMME.

My sense is that this was a good perfume once upon a time but that now it is a mere muzak-chemical shadow of itself. It's rather sweet and could be interpreted as a coffee-esque scent, I suppose. But it now has a Coty chemical smell to it which causes me to wonder whether I might be poisoning myself by wearing it. As I walked around the store for a few minutes, I began to regret that I had ruined my scent of the day experience, Creed VANISIA, by spraying JOOP! HOMME on the backs of my hands. The scent became stronger and stronger and quickly overwhelmed the VANISIA on my wrists and décolleté. After several minutes, I could not take it anymore and headed for the ladies' room, where I attempted to scrub the stuff off.

I say "attempted" because a generous, thorough sudsing followed by a long rinse did not remove JOOP! HOMME from my hands. As I made my way to Whole Foods the scent began to reassert itself, eventually enveloping my body again. Remember the "cone of silence" from Maxwell Smart? Well, I was moving around in a "cone of JOOP! HOMME".

Once in the snacking section of Whole Foods, which is the cheese department, since they always have bowls of cubed cheese lying about for people like me who go to the grocery store while hungry, I noticed that JOOP! HOMME had really zapped my appetite. I headed to the restroom again and scrubbed my hands once more. Upon emerging, I realized that the scent was still there. I went to the beauty section and applied a strongly almond scented cream to my hands, rubbing it in and relieved that it seemed to be covering the scent.

Alas, as soon as the cream had soaked in, JOOP! HOMME began another resurgence. I am all for good longevity, but nuclear longevity is way too scary for me, and now I must end this not very descriptive review to go soak in a hot tub. What does it smell like? you may still be wondering. Well, like none of the listed notes plus a bunch of sweet chemicals. In a word: yuck.

fruity-flowery and a little bit alcoholic opening and warm -sweet base. It's a pleasant scent wearable by a woman too. Quite good sillage.+1

It's a love or hate fragrance. To me, the floral notes come across as very synthetic and the overall scent is overly sweet.

The sweet scent for the metrosexual yuppie. I don't mean it in a bad way. I own it and I use it although I am not metrosexual or a yuppie.+4

Joop! Homme is a wild and seductive perfume, so as not to go unnoticed.

Performance over the expectations. I can still smell it after one day of work. It's so powerful, honey sweet and musky! I do love it!
