Combine the classic Joop Homme (candied-mentholated black cherry syrup) with Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy Man, Escada Magnetism For Men, such further fragrances a la Azzaro Decibel and Baldessarini Ambre', a touch of One Million, than add a whiff of virile exoticism (a vaguely simil rum-tobacco accord) and you will obtain Joop Homme Pour Homme Wild. Aromatic and boozy spicy (peppery)-minty bombastic ambroxan with darkening woods, nocturnal flowers, tobacco, leather and patchouli. Appealing for the younger crowd, less original and bold than its predecessor. Probably hints of synthetic resins (Iso E-driven Incense, galaxolide ??) are included in the recipe. A pleasant synthetic amber decently appointed but finally boring.
P.S= over many hours on the skin the synthetic amber appears less aromatic and more specifically nutty, (somewhat hazelnut-cocoa veined). The lasting powder is nuclear as usual with Joop.

I own Original Joop, Joop Summer Ticket, and now Homme Wild. Summer Ticket definitely has the original Joop DNA, albeit with some new fruity notes replacing the cinnamon. However, Homme Wild doesn't share any similarities with Original Joop. As others have stated, its a warm, creamy, woodsy, boozy, sweet and sensual ride. I can't think of anything I have in my collection that smells like this one. I just purchased it recently, so haven't had a chance to wear it clubbing, but I imagine it will get some positive attention. Definitely for nights out.
A lovely boozy/spicy/coconut long lasting fragrance. The dry down is like the smell of Malibu liqueur. This is unique and very nice
Joop Homme Wild is a flanker of the original Joop Homme. The two have very little in common besides the name. Joop Homme is a loud and extremely strong and sweet fragrance. Joop Homme Wild on the otherhand is a rum and tobacco based fragrance that cuts way back on the sweetness. Much more versatile than the original and can be applied like a normal fragrance. Projection and longevity are both very good. Basically Wild is a rum and tobacco based fragrance on a base of woods with a touch of pepper. There is some slight sweetness to the tobacco which is there to stop the fragrance from becoming too dry or spicy. Wild might not be a daily wearer, but it's one of those fragrances that you'll reach for more than you would think. Joop released a nice fragrance here. Don't let the bottle or childish marketing detour you from trying it.
Pros: It doesn't smell like the original.
Cons: The bottle and the name are tacky."
Not that bad, really. I don't want to be overly critical but I just can't see the higher game in this one when compared to the original. There is this liqueur-ish note, vanilla with tobacco coming about as the overall winner of notes. When compared to Joop! Homme, this is a spoiled teenage brat that doesn't have what it takes. Despite all that I find this to be a quite good, younger crowd pleasing scent that even myself like. What this scent did to me is that it made me appreciate the original even more.
I like both the original and J!WH. I would say this is a slightly more grown up version with the rum and tobacco notes really standing out to my nose. It certainly does fit the clubbing scent category but slightly more maturely than either the orignal or Joop Jump. A nice varation:)
