    Default Less Nuclear Joop! Alternative

    Hi,
    I am a fan of Joop (I know, I know), but find that although I love how it smells it can be a bit too much and also tends to invade people's personal space, if they are within 100 yards.

    Is there any fragrances that are similar to Joop in smell but that won't melt eyeballs?

    Thanks!

    Creed Original Santal smells very similar to Joop! It smells nicer and natural. It is incredibly strong for a Creed but maybe not as strong as Joop! Longevity is incredible too.

    Individuel if you want an affordable alternative (Original Santal is veery expensive for just a 10% more richer notes)

    It is how Joop! would smell if it were made with expensive ingredients and given an expensive price tag. I also heard that Mont Blanc's Individuel was similar to OS and Joop!

    I agree with Original Santal, pricey though.

    Try Cadillac , Costs absolutely nothing and is a better smelling scent than Joop but very similar.
    You wont be disappointed.

    I happen to love Joop, though I am very very easy on the trigger with it. I only wear joop on my lower chest area and that really helps keep it from being as harsh. 2 sprays and I am good.

    I will also look into the alternatives mentioned here.
    Top 10 at the moment:

    1.Kouros
    2.Terre D'Hermes
    3.Fahrenheit
    4.Creed Royal Oud
    5.Eau Sauvage
    6.Dior Homme Sport
    7.Creed Bois du Portugal
    8.Givency PI
    9.Dior Homme
    10.Ralph Lauren Polo Blue

    Try Joop! Homme aftershave or cologne rather than the EDT. Either one would fit the bill.

    Original Santal by Creed, but it is expensive ... try spraying just 1 spray of Joop! Homme on your chest before getting dressed ...

    Original Santal is a better alternative
