    Because IMO it smells very cheap.

    Because it's old and it smells bad, even when it was new.

    Because the drydown is unbelievably good and there is nothing else like it (at least nothing that I've tried).
    The trick is not to go overboard with the sprayer.

    I like lots of fragrances from that time period, can't wear them anymore but still like them. Z-14, 1-12, polo, obsession, drakkar etc all high school scents that I still have a few of but don't wear often or only at home. Still good but too connected to my high school brain I think.

    First, if I was going to wear something like this, I'd go for Cadillac or Magnetism for Men instead. Secondly, you have to move around a lot when you wear it. If you sit in one spot for a couple hours with this continually wafting into your nose, you are begging for a bout of chemical sensitivity syndrome! LOL.

    I personally love it but people dont take you seriously if you wear it to work or university. not very versatile.
    if you are not already very masculine it 'could' send the wrong message, this being a gender bending fragrance.

    It's unfairly targeted for jokes and criticism, really. It's definitely really sweet and strong, but it's not that bad. Creed ripped it off with Original Santal, just a little.

    Because its scent brings back many fond and fun memories of long nights in college!

    I love it but for the same reason as many others. It brings me back to a time for me right out of high school. My friend had a bottle and we would spray the crap out of it just before we went cruising on a Friday night. I never owned a bottle. I will by a bottle just for fun soon. I actually like the scent as well.

    I think it's too strong and synthetic. I sprayed it on at the Ulta store one day and spent the next three hours in misery because I had to complete some chores while I was out and couldn't get home to scrub the stuff off.

    Not hate, but truly dislike

    Reasons: at least to my nose and my skin, it is way too strong (at not strong in a pleasant, outstanding way), but simply sweet up to the point of being choking, plus too unilateral, no surprising developments

    I don't love it or hate it. It just isn't very good.

    is there any other frag that can match the strength of Joop in terms of longevity & projection ?

    I happen to really like it, but it needs to be applied sparingly. The bottom line: When I wear it, I get lots of complements from women. It has great projection and longevity. I think the dry down is fantastic.

    I don't like the smell, but I do like that it is not like Acqua di Gio or one of its many clones.

    Sickly sweet Lolly-water. Used to be sprayed excessively by EVERY Aussie male teenager in the late 90s / early 00's.

    I have a confession and I hope I can get some absolution here on basenotes. I had a bottle of this in 2001/2002 before my interest in fragrances and I used it for work and loved the smell at the time.

    Now many years later I have evolved way past Joop Homme but when I think back of wearing this every day for 18 months on the bus and at work, in the elavator.etc I am surprised as I do not remember any negative reactions from anyone regarding my scent and I am not someone who likes to make waves. Just saying..........

    I personally love it. Excellent sweet and spicy fragrance for outdoor. Very good dry down and staying power. This is unique. You need guts to wear this.

    I think Joop! Homme is actually a successful oriental when used sparingly. It smells sweet, but good, with surprisingly quality to the synthetics used. I can actually smell the white floral notes against sandalwood, distinctly, which is more than I can say for many other scents in its price bracket. I also like how the heliotrope and cinnamon combine to create a weird maraschino cherry accord, unlike anything I've ever encountered. It's pretty unique. It may be old, but I don't smell this on anyone anymore. It's a winner in my book, very original. Looking forward to trying Individuel as well.

    Wow, I remember when I first was seriously getting into fragrances this was one that I truly HATED with a passion. It would make my nose cringe and the instinctual hurling of the bottle back at the SA wasn't too uncommon either. Now I've grown to "stand" it, but by no means will this ever get any wearing except in rare circumstances. Yes it smells sweet, but not in a good way to me.

    I just can't make sense of this fragrance. Not being a fan of Hugo Boss fragrances either, I've concluded maybe the Germans just don't know how to make fragrances hahaha.

    The only way to wear this with respect to others is underneath a biohazard suit, and personally, I don't look so good in a biohazard suit.
