Gabi, Adam and I
( my first comment, be indulgent )

It's 1999, I'm 15, severely pubescent and have no girlfriend. But then came Gabi, and Gabi was wild and free and her long hair played with the wind and smelled like patchouli. For my 16th birthday she gave me something about adam and when I used it for the very first time, I didn't understand it
What does it smell like? Tomatoes? Basil?
Until then my olfactory world was limited to ck be/one and adam was too much for me. But I carried him. For Gabi. Whenever we saw each other. And then I wore it even when I was longing for her. At some point I always wore it and it became my first signature fragrance. For he too was different, wild and free. I stood out when I wore it and felt good about it
Due to our old man at that time, Gabi and I didn't last long. But adam stayed. I bought a total of 7 bottles myself before he disappeared.

Today I still own a bottle that is almost half full. I guard him like a treasure. Sometimes in spring or summer I treat myself to a sprayer, take a deep breath and ask myself what Gabi is doing right now.

Love in times of so lala
My heart's dancing. And not just with Mia, but on days like these. I was recently delighted with a treasure from my circle of friends. The rescued bottle is dusty and the rest of the contents are clear, but that doesn't harm my joy. The juice is still top preserved and so I can celebrate this best of all Joops today again really!

Back then it wasn't really love at first sight. At the end of the 90s I possessed him and carried him from time to time. But I learned to really appreciate him only with time. It was almost too late. Dancing nights, wild parties, everything he's been through, Adam. And then he was hired. In a time long before Parfumo, without warning, in order to be able to build up if necessary still another Hamstervorrat. Just leave from one day to the next.

Why, I can't understand. I still find him very attractive from today's point of view. The slightly mined, fruity opening with citrus is sweet-fresh and absolutely contemporary. The flowery-woody heart and the spicy-soft finish anyway. And this ethereal green tomato leaf floats over the entire course, rounding off the fragrance and making it unique. So goes unique, dear friends. That's love in times of so lala!

Even if the competition at that time e.g. from Davidoff, Sander, but also from the same house, was certainly a little louder, the performance is excellent by today's standards. Although I didn't exactly apply it lavishly today, I was asked about it twice in the office - that doesn't happen too often. So I don't seem to be alone with my positive perception.

So I can only repeat the call from my statement: Come back, Adam. Everything is forgiven and forgotten! Until then I will enjoy my remaining bottle, which will hopefully make my heart dance quite often

I love Gazpacho & Adam!
First of all, I'd like to join the previous speakers It's a shame Joop took the scent off the market. The female counterpart still exists.
Was he before his time?!

Tomato leaf??
Well, do you want that in a perfume? Head says no, heart after first nose..., ohjaa, give me more of it!!!
And here it is really lovingly incorporated. It's prominent, but never over it! As a gardener's son I know the smell, you can also call it "stench", the tomato plants at heat and when you trim them shoot out.
I never thought I'd hear that in a scent!
But...., hammer, fresh and sweetly combined here, the tomato leaf is the lead singer, but leaves room for his colleagues!
Today it's almost 40 degrees everywhere. I made the right choice with Adam today!

A green, fresh aura surrounds me!

If Eva had the chance again, she would choose a tomato, not the appeal to show off!
I would have chosen the vegetables if I had had the choice!

Time for a petition;)
