Thrilled to pieces to find that I could get my hands on a cute little bottle of Nightflight, and even more thrilled to find I'm not the only fan! I was half expecting that it wouldn't appeal to me, almost 25 years later, but I still have the nostalgic soft spot for the synthetic, soapy-clean fragrances of my pre-teen years. This was the first fragrance I found and chose!
I also detest Cool Water, and while there's am undeniable link, this is just so much more appealing.
The opening of bergamot, green/underripe citrus, and undeniably synthetic soapy "blue"-ness is... Well, not "sublime", but wonderful. I'm going to continue wearing this, because I am completely missing the pineapple here. It dries down into coumarin/tonka/almondine (like almond extract) on my skin but without making my teeth hurt.
Fantastically fake. Love it!
Better than the original but not sure how I feel about this one. It does smell of a little wet dog from the bottle. It reminds me a lot of Diesel Fuel for Life without the rasberry note. I don't get much pineapple/bergamot from this although I could tell they are there somewhere. I got the large bottle for 13USD and will use it up when i want a change of pace. It is very flowery. Those who like aspects of the original Joop but not the whole creation might like this one.
This along with CoolWater started the super fresh and somewhat sweet era that followed in the late 90s and 2000s.
Sparkling fruits but not sickly at all. It bears faint resemblance to the original Joop! except this reels in that oh so sweet goodness and subs it with sparkling shimmerings that last a long time. It's like a sparkling drink with 10% fruit juice. I like it because it works very well in today's fragrance landscape, 20 plus years later. For the price it is a steal.
Another imitation of Calvin Klein's Eternity for Men. If I smell them right next to each other I can detect the differences, but the differences aren't enough to be overly concerned with.
This is a really great scent, fresh as morning dew. I first picked up a bottle in the mid 90's in the original Joop years and loved it so much it found its way back into my collection now. Nightflight still has that mesmerizing first hit that keeps me coming back for more.
