    La Joupe by Essentially Me

    La Joupe’s opening is somewhat scary: Big florals with a big, big, big musk threatening in the background. Oriental in genre, but not excessively sweet, it presents a smoky, guiac background that makes La Joupe both classy and sexy. The florals, which explode in the opening, do not seem to last as a dominant part of the fragrance… the musk (reinforced by a smoky patchouli) gains and holds supremacy to the end of the fragrance… but I don’t find that the musk throws very much sillage: It’s strong when sniffed close to the skin, but not in the sillage. La Joupe provides a lovely white floral accord with a guaiac-labdanum background which I catch in the form of light whiffs off the skin: I love its soft woody-resinous-aromatic aura.
