The increase of WOW?
If there are paths in the mainstream world that deviate from the zeitgeist, it's worth the time for a comment. Because the Intense Flanker has just been released, it is immediately treated with a treatment in the course of a comparison.

The reason why I like this fragrance is that I have a weakness for woody amber fragrances. As long as they don't choke on cake spices. Basically Kiton Napoli's heart was ripped out of a fragrance I unfortunately only got to know after it was stopped, the citrus tones were ripped out of it, the lily of the valley simulation was reduced and the vanilla was set to light food.

The remaining corpus is for me a linear wooden amber tone, which was ventilated in a wonderful way. If I had reduced myself to a statement here, it would have been: "The magic is in the air". And what makes this fragrance outstanding for my nose is not the list of ingredients but its ability to change despite the linear basic impression. Sometimes a Wishky texture comes over, sometimes a nuance of tobacco and very consistently a touch of cherry. Never sticky or gourmandig, also not suffocating creamy, but airy whipped.

Adjusted for the factor of self-adaptation, the performance is 7-8 hours and thus within my usable radius without any problems. The projection is average with normal handling and therefore easy to use in everyday life.

So the handover to his new big brother. I wouldn't have needed any intentions here, because the direct comparison unfailingly reveals to me that here, too, a formula of its own was sent into the race. And this at the expense of the character independence of the original.

If cinnamon is already threatened in the pyramid (simply not one of my favorite scents), then usually its use is noticeable. A note that stands out strongly for me. The pool of cinnamon-heavy wooden scents, which fade out similarly, is significantly higher.

That's why I'd make the recommendation here: Those who like the EdT should rather overspray this than reach for the Intense. The DNA of the original is clearly disfigured by cinnamon, gently disfigured by iris.

But what I want to give the Flanker credit for is that he's not suffocating in sweetness. This character (of the EdT) could be maintained. The Intense version begins like a subtle butter biscuit, then smells of fresh concrete for a while and nestles tangentially to the DNA original of the WOW EdT. Always the cinnamon in the luggage, which in the overall impression very easily allows associations with other fragrances.

I cannot judge how doubling the concentration of EdT would have affected the fragrance itself. And whether the airiness that makes this fragrance interesting for me would have been lost to him.
Wow Intense is far from bad, but for someone who is at war with cinnamon, it is not a real permanent alternative.

For marketing purposes, advertising a fragrance as a "WOW" is a direct challenge to the mocking creativity of potential customers. Since fragrances have a lot to do with suggestion, this fragrance deserves a name that hasn't been brainstormed between parking lot and office.

There is no superlaive to WOW, except maybe Wau Wau"!

Wow! Effect? Definitely yes!
I discovered this scent thanks to a small sample that was put into my pocket at Douglas.

Even the text on the small orange "package insert", which promised scents of cardamom, vetiver, tonka and vanilla, triggered a certain anticipation in me. So I quickly sprayed it and there was really a wow: The freshness of the bergamot is quickly joined by the spice of the cardamom - but what is that? Softwood? Tanne? As a beginner in the world of fragrances, I would never have thought that fir balm would harmonize so well and smell so good in an EDT. But this combination together with the tonka and vanilla notes is very harmonious for my taste. The fir balsam stands out, but is not too dominant for my sensation.

After also my wife was directly impressed, I drove directly on the following day again to the turquoise to buy a large flacon Wow!.

All in all a very natural, down-to-earth fragrance, which gives me a feeling of comfort and contentment. I often wear it in the office because it's really unobtrusive. For my taste it could be even more powerful and last longer. Whereby at least my wife still notices him when I already have the feeling that he has already completely vanished.

For me, Wow! is definitely one of my favorites. Sometimes when I walk past the bottle, even when I'm wearing a different fragrance, I stop, take off the cap, briefly smell it and Zack, there it is again - that Wow! feeling ...

runs... and runs... and runs
So I find the fragrance quite unique and it gives me a pleasant feeling when I wear it. I sprayed Joops Wow on my chest at 7.00 this morning, now at 15 o'clock Wow is still very present, and this will probably not change until I get into the shower in the evening. At the moderate price I can make a recommendation with a clear conscience

A woodsy hug
To my nose there is a beautiful opening of warm spicy cardamom, velvety cashmere and a slightly sweet balsam fir that evoke neatly wrapped luxurious presents under the christmas tree.

Joop certainly went in a different direction with a fragrance that is more mature than their usual in a much better looking bottle than usual. Surprisingly though they still chose a rather juvenile name that doesn't seem to match this darker, woody scent. The sweetness here is not the sickly type found in Homme or Homme Wild but much more ambery and natural, with none of the teenage fun factor of the other Joop fragrances. The performance sadly is not like Homme or Homme Wild either and it's a shame the initial smooth top notes don't last longer, but the dry down is still very aromatic and enjoyable.

Wow may not have the celebrity status of Joop Homme but to me it's a more serious, versatile and wearable scent for the colder months.

Wow a wannabe CH for Men?
SOTD: Joop Wow: As of 01/03/19

My opinion review of Joop Wow is a nice scent has a bit the CH for Men similarities or scent DNA, but has a tone down vibe than CH for Men. I have the CH for Men the reformulation version and the newer design, when sniff both of them really similar but different. Wow didn't wow me, but made me rethink on who to reach for on occasions. Liked the balanced scent of cashmere, Vanilla and Tonka bean. Is a must have in any collection if you don't have CH for Men reformulation or OG.

How some tear him apart..
... is incomprehensible to me. A matter of taste, of course, but if I look at some comments here. Well...
He reminds me a little of Dior Fahrenheit. Certainly not so high quality and also the durability is not the best but I think it's great just because you don't smell it at every corner. There are so many great perfumes but you can also smell them felt on every man (e.g. Dior Sauvage and Co.), which makes Joop Wow so to speak "unique". I was asked about the perfume several times, always positively. I recommend a multiple test. Just with the skin and clothes he reacts wonderfully/beautifully

Joop for shy people
Seen, sniffed, bought.
I have seen the bottle in the trade and since I like Joop! I took a nose of it.
Very tasty, I like you, I'll take you home with me.

The bottle lies well in my hand, the cap was new for me and really needed the instructions on the cardboard lid. Unfortunately the spray head is not compatible with the Travalo, so I have to carry the whole bottle with me...

The perfume itself with its honey-coloured gold is just as warm and inviting as the fragrance itself.
The fragrance in the opening is warm and wraps around with this sweetness that reminds me of Joop! But without exaggerating like others. After the opening, the vanilla is relatively quickly pulled through which the other essences are somewhat whitewashed. The tonka bean gives the vanilla even more volume and rounds off the fragrance in the base note. I notice almost nothing of the heart note, but can also be due to my still inexperienced nose. Vetiver is known to me from Hermes or Guerlain, but is mixed in rather cautiously here.

I am a little disappointed by the durability. I'm used to it from Joop! definitely different. If I could add all 3h, then this is for me no real Joop!
The Sillage is fair in return. The scent is with me, around me, but not in the whole room. This is great, so I can wear the scent comfortably in the office.

In my opinion a good recommendation looking for something that lies between Boss Bottled and 1 million. A little bit small, Fahrenheit also comes to mind, but this really only on the side and I ask myself each time why?

Once again a very fine fragrance from Joop!

For me the best Joop in a long time...
...yeah, yeah, I know. That's not necessarily hard.

In the wow, balm fir, cashmere wood, vanilla and a fruity fresh bergamot blend to create an unobtrusive wintery office fragrance. The fragrance definitely radiates something soothing, and the top note in particular is convincing during the first hour.

I can't understand the criticism that he's too sweet or artificial. The only drawback for me is the rather moderate durability and the somewhat modest silage. Here you have to apply more sprayers than you are used to from previous Joops. If you also want to have some of the scent all day long, you definitely have to spray it at noon. In the clothing again is still perceptible in the evening.

The bottle is successful and is supposed to be based on Scottish whisky bottles in its design. The gimmick with the locking ring, on the other hand, I find less successful and the spray head could also be better. In my opinion this spits something and does not really distribute the spray evenly.

Conclusion: A good, unobtrusive office fragrance for winter. Skin no completely from the stool but does not push anyone in front of the head.

Casting
Welcome to "One will already bring" of the show for all talents of the world.
Today we sit in our jury real titans of entertainment.
Together we are looking forward to Dieter Bohlen, Didi Hallervorden, Howard Carpendale and Udo Lindenberg.

The first candidate is Jopp Wow and will try to convince the jury of his skills, we are curious to see how he will perform.
He's gonna smell something to them today, we'll keep our fingers crossed.

Screeds: Just like Stevie Wonder didn't become a designer, you can't become a fragrance with your requirements, but get going.

Didi: Palim Palim, Hö, Hö, Hö!

WOW: PFFF...PFFF...PFFF

Udo: Dude, the violet here, it's so creepy pure so.
Screeds: Yeah hörma, your top note, nä, so if I were you, I'd rather be me, you know?
Howard: Hello again. Isch just say isch riesch again. But you don't think that's so bad.
Didi:HACH Is that exciting! I need more details.

WOW: PFFF...PFFF...PFFF

Bohlen: ey I've seen worse. If you continue like this with the cardamom, the megageil.
Didi: Write Sie´s to I will deal with it later. Hö, Hö, Hö!
Howard: You sound billisch with the Rosengeranjie now. MIsch convinces the framed what you are doing here.
Udo: jou that you can whistle your nose well. You got a totally good mix on there now. It's like a special train from Wolfgang. That's a really good violet mix. Tüdndü.

WOW: PFFF...PFFF...PFFF

Didi:HACH is that exciting! Nenene, that's all right. Better than a bottle of fries. Hö,Hö,Hö!

Udo: It really went deep with us. I'm already behind the horizon age. Your vanilla in the base makes one so incredibly quiet, we pull one off beastly. Nope you that's totally okay. I'll take my hat off to you
Screeds: Yeah ey, watch what I touch turns to gold, nä..I've touched Verona for 3 weeks, you still hear about her. This is gonna be awesome with us. Tonka baby! I like that. Weissu, people come here, no, they think they could smell, but they suck. They have scents, nä, you can get a disabled parking pass there. They're no good, just plaque, weissu. I mean, you really don't look like anything, but you really showed Uncle Dieter something.

Howard: Forget Laura Jane. Your beautiful Ti Amo was just background music, but I think it really smells good. I don't even know why people have discovered disch nisch before. Honestly. I've told Wayne, there comes sischer still something rischtig good, but Wayne interested?

Screeds: Yo, I really thought, nä..now there's another guy coming, nä, he thinks he can smell and he thinks he's the biggest and so, nä, but he was really ok so, weissu.

Didi: Hö,Hö,Hö!

Well the candidate is further and has simply once all surprised. He was very nice smelling, showed normal endurance and proved to be a good all-rounder. Congratulations!

Spray, close eyes, lean back...
For whatever reason, that perfume calms me down. I don't wear it that often, but I like to spray it into a cloth or simply into the air and breathe in deeply. Due to my Persian roots, the loud spice in the opening of the fragrance has no "WOW"-effect, but rather transports me back to my childhood and gives me a homelike, pleasant feeling.
One of my personal favorites, even if it's just for me.
