    Default Can a woman wear Joop! Homme?

    Do you guys think a lady can pull off Joop! Homme? This stuff smells seriously amazing and sexy on my man. I enjoy and wear Joop! Femme which shares that same vanilla note in the drydown. I was wondering if you guys think the male version is unisex at all? Would you like to smell this on a woman?

    I definitely wouldn't.. but that's probably because I am really young (18 years old). To my nose, Joop! is honestly one of the worst fragrances I've smelled.
    Current top 3:
    1) Gucci Pour Homme II
    2) Givenchy Play Intense
    3) Dolce & Gabbana The One

    Wear what YOU like. Many people here look at all fragrances as unisex.

    Joop! Homme is very similar to Creed Original Santal, which I think is great on women, and which I'm more familiar with.

    Some women I know love Original Santal, and many women supposedly wear it. The wearability of these fragrances is more a personality thing than a sex thing, IMO. Original Santal is just a very distinctive, attention-grabbing scent. Recommended for divas, extroverts, and people who don't mind making their presence known. Among guys it's a clubbing scent. It really announces you. I think Joop! Homme is exactly the same way, and if you have the right personality, you can pull it off.

    I'm , personally , not a fan of this fragrance but I do think a woman can most definitely pull this off , I think that sweet and feminine cherry/jasmine vibe I get will smell nice on a woman's skin

    I like my females to wear citrus based fragrances or vanilla based fragrances.

    In my opinion, yes, it has a syrupy-gourmand accord working well with both genders

    It's hard for me to find any masculinity of that one, so my answer is yes. But even on a woman it's a bit "too much" for me.

    I would not mind smelling it on my wife, as long as she likes it, is is fine. So, try it and judge by yourself. If you feel fine wearing it, go for it. If you don't, well, try somehting else.

    Yes. But sometime go shopping with the Basenoters and we'll lead you by the hand over to the nicer part of the fragrance department. It's OK if you want to wear it, but you could do much better.

    I have to say no in this case foe it is such a polor fragrance very much like Angel for women. True Story... A year a go I kept getting a whiff a sweet cherry tobacco fragrance very lightly through the office everyone and a while. By middle afternoon I found the culprit at the copy machine a female intern I knew the smell immediately and asked are you wearing Joop for men. She was mortified and asked me how did I know for i was the third man to ask. I said I think every man many have worn it or tied it at one time....she was so insecure that at lunch she went home showered and changed. I can't blame her it does take balls to pull off those kind of frangance gender games and you have to be open when your cornered with the questions that get asked. Personally I would never where Angel in public.

    Funny, I would not have given a damn. Wearing Joop! being a female and being recognised by a coworker does not make out of me a better or worse person. Plus she had the chance of telling you whe was wearing "NN for Women".

    I was asked what I as wearing the other day and told a coworker "Obsession for women", after being told that the smell was familiar for her, I was asked why I was wearing a female's scent, I told her because I thought it was much better than the men's version and that masculine / femenine perfumes are, to some extense, social constructs, and that some masculine scents released lately made perfect women's fragrances (as a matter of fact, I made her try Dior Homme Intense blind, she told me t was a femenine scent, showed her the bottle, told me she could not believe it).

    If I would have felt uncomfy at the question, I would have told her that it was an obscure niche brand only available in Greenland: "Amuougens Gold 1734, the MMLCV Millesime Imperial version, batch 013331789, of course".

    Over the years I've had several perfume sales ladies telling me that they prefer wearing the men's Joop to the women's version, the most recent being several months back.

    Funny that you ask that. My aunt wears Joop Homme, and apparently has, ever since Brut was reformulated.

    I say yes. The floral notes make it very plausible.
