    Default Sillage Showdown : Lapidus Pour Homme Vs Joop! Homme ?

    I know both of these are classed as sillage monsters but which is the stronger out of them in terms of projection ?

    Joop! Nothing else directly marketed for men's can contend with Joop Homme in the sillage arena.

    Well its two against one,lol. That should tell you something. I own Lapidus and have gone through at least two 125 ml of Joop! Both fragraces have nuclear sillage but Lapidus goes a bit further in terms projection, though I find longevity and that potent sallage goes to Joop! if that makes any sense.

    I suspect that Joop! Homme would win out, but it is indeed difficult for me to say with any certainty since I have only smelled Lapidus pour Homme when I have been wearing it. Since Joop! Homme is much more mainstream, I smell it quite often on others. I know that I, personally, am much less self conscious wearing Lapidus pH in public than I am wearing Joop! Homme. I would therefore cast my vote for winning projection/sillage for Joop! Homme. It really is a tough call between these two monster frags.

    Both are monstrous. Both need a deft hand when applying and both are so strong in sillage/longevity that it ceases to matter which one may have the edge.

    Joop is definitely more mainstream and recognizable and has made its living being a radioactive masculine. For those who haven't smelled Lapidus, it's in the same arena as Balenciaga for sheer mass.

    smellgood4u, Lapidus Pour Homme is nowhere as sweet as Joop!, and I find it MUCH more wearable than Joop! as well. You would probaly like Lapidus PH, it's woodsy and aromatic, and has a honey note that interplays with the woods to give a very tobacco-like feel.

    Well, maybe these guys can say it better than me.

    Thanks, this was all I needed to buy. I think I get the reasons why some call it honey and others bondfire.

    I get a lot of honey from Lapidus Pour Homme. Moreso than Boss #1, and better represented (I think) than modern Kouros (can't speak for the vintage, I can't recall its intensity...been quite a while).

    I inboxed you a message sir.

    Infact I don't get a honey note in Lapidus. At least there are other overpowering notes in it that I can't detect the honey note others say! Or maybe it is so subtle that I didn't pay attention to it! Consider that I just sampled it once due to not liking that, so maybe others opinions that have tried it many times are more reliable...

    Joop Homme prevails as the champion in the sillage arena. If you are living and breathing its vapors will seek you out.

    Are we talking about the re formula or the vintage?
