    Exclamation New Joop Fragrance - Wolfgang Joop for men

    I have some new information to share which I friend passed on to me...

    Yes, a new men's scent will be launched by the house of Joop! that will carry the name of brands founder -Wolfgang Joop.

    Thought Wolfgang sold the right to his company in the very early 90's he was asked by the company Joop! to consult on this fragrance.

    The last fragrances which Wolfgang had artistic in put on was his famous Joop! Homme and the female counter part Joop! Femme.

    The men's fragrance portfolio is the most successful for the company therefore it was logical to launch a men's scent and possible women's version down the road.

    Wolfgang himself will be included in the adverting. The scent is to a have modern baroque feeling. Inspiration was pulled from Wolfgang himself and his love and collection of items from the era.

    The bottle (which I have not seen yet) is fluted and the jus a deep amber orange. The scent is described as containing oranges, lavender, coriander, vetiver, sandalwood and cinnamon, on a base of patchouli and tobacco.

    Thanks scentimus! The notes definitely sound intriguing. I guess I'll be in the minority here if I say Joop! Pour Homme is a work of art.

    The notes look good to me too. And since it has a modern baroque feeling that is more interesting now as I like baroque music. Just wishing it won't smell too old.

    Sounds interesting. I can't stand the original, but love Nightflight. I love the smell of Jump on paper, but when I wore it I got an incredible headache. Go was pretty much the same as Joop Jump, and unfortunately I never got a chance to smell What About Adam.

    Much too lazy to log in and contribute today, thought about just lurking until I read this thread. I'm very excited for this new scent if the notes in this new fragrance are as reported. And Mudassir, I completely agree with your assessment that Joop! Pour Homme is art, regardless of how "unpopular" that may be to say on these forums!
    Doctor, doctor...what is wrong with me...?

    All I can say in my comment is - this show how much house Joop! and Coty need Wolfgang's creativity back. A company that distanced itself from its creater for the longest time - eats crow.

    As arrogant and full of himself he is they need him to help their dying fragrance line. The company has yet to have the success and unique creativity they had with Joop! Homme.

    Do I feel this scent is the magic pill? No, with how the men's fragrance market is so completive now I am sure Coty Prestige had the final say - instead of looking to chart new territory and make their own niche they will settle for competing with Aqua di Gio & Allure Sport.

    I have to say that the visuals do nothing for me.
    Could this be Joop!'s answer to rival German house Boss's more mature "Baldessarini" line?

    Whatever the case, Im uninspired to race out and try it purely and simply based on the kack ad campaign. *shrugs*

    The notes do sound nice in this scent..... I am not a fan of Joop Homme but I do believe that this is a fantastic fragrance.....it's just not for me.

    Joop Homme is a cultural phenomenon that still goes on. Took an obscure German firm to worldwide success. I'm looking forward to this one.

    Actually, I see it for sale on the Frankfurt Duty Free website. A fellow BNer was flying through there and was asking for some fragrances to sample/purchase.

    If I was there, every square inch of available body real estate would have been covered in new releases

    I just caught a whiff of the topnotes at the perfumery - synthetic fruity orange. Any curiosity was thereby allayed.

    I already have the new Wolfgang Joop (tester-sample). It goes like D&G The One for Men...just that you can get a picture. It is sexy grapefruit-orange-fresh-sweet-orientel!!! I have to test it again.

    I also tried the new Prada Infusion d´Homme (it´s kinda weak...the first Prada Amber Pour Homme is much better), Guerlain Homme and Kenzo Power.
    At the end I bought Montale Red Vetyver.

    For the ladies out there...the new Jean Paul Gaultier MaDame is sooo sexy...I wore it yesterday by myself :-)

    I like that one too! I think it is much better then the recent men's release Monsieur Eau du Matin.

    P-Natra, we gotta hook up. I am in the Nord-Rhein Wesfallen area, but I will be down in the Munich area soon. I will PM you.

    I tried this today and after my first whiff, I covered my entire body in it.
    It smells like a sweeter stronger version of Dunhill Pursuit, a well balanced citrus sweet and manly spicy. And it has a vanilla edge to it. I absolutely love it, and would have bought it instantly except I was low on euros and I am really trying to downsize.
    If anyone wants it, let me know, I can do better than the duty free prices listed above. Just PM me.

    so, finally its bein announced for the american market?
    has been out here for more than 2 weeks i think.
    tried it pretty thoroughly and like it.
    smells alot like the jump scent to me just upscaled for the more mature crowd and made a bit more interesting with spices and herbs..
    joop calls it a 'sexy, timeless and addictive, woody oriental'
    well i thought jump was already a sexy timeless oriental so just woodier
    well, i cant complain-i LOVE jump and i do like wolfgang joop VERY much however im gonna wait a few months until they have reasoned the price a bit.

    I just had to reply as I could just picture Andrew going hog-wild with the bottle! Thanks for the laugh and the imagery!

    D&G The One
    Dunhill Pursuit
    Joop Jump

    Wellll all three have been compared to Wolfgang Joop for men but none of the above smell much like each other. Jump initially was gross but grew on me. Now I think its a fun scent.

    Cheers,

    Is this going to be released in the USA? I know that Jump made it to JCPenney's.
