Here's the verdict, fwiw. We all have different noses:

    Joop Homme. Him: It's tame, but if it's the only one you ever had in life, you'd be okay. Her: It's pretty okay, but I don't love, love it.

    Joop Jump. Him: A deeper scent. This one would get you through two lifetimes. I like it a lot. Her: Me, too. It doesn't have the sharp note that Homme does. It's smoother.

    Joop Nightflight. Him: It's the strongest of them all, but I almost smell detergent in there. Her: I smell detergent, too.

    Joop Wild. Him: It's the best one. More complex. Could replace a bath, if necessary. Her: Love it!


    For reference, he's presently wearing Dolce & Gabanna The One for men and his wardrobe now consists of:

    AdP Colonia Intensa Oud
    Caron L'Anarchiste
    Creed Aventus
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Davidoff's Cool Water
    Le Labo Oud 27
    Nasamotto Pardon
    Nasamotto Duro
    Thanks for the insight! I own Jump and enjoy it, but have had my eye on Homme Wild for awhile now...and think I just wanted to hear a womans opinion on it before I pulled the trigger.

    I have both and actually prefer Nightflight. Nothing "synthetic" about its scent, to my nose.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Joop Wild should be next on your list OP
    Got a bottle of Joop Wild....its def a tropical scent. The opening is just that too wild but I like the dry down. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Nightflight is the best of Joop! scents to me, a surprisingly lasting fresh scent that has brought me comments EVERY TIME I've wore it!
    maybe I'll buy a back up bottle of this in future....

    Maybe people nearby loved Aventus but didn't say anything. It doesn't mean the fragrance wasn't pleasant.

    Sometimes you have to let things silently make a good impression.

    Scents that have gotten me more compliments than Aventus.

    Tam Dao
    2 Man
    Hinoki
    Songe D'un Bois D'Ete
    Issey
    Avignon
    Pot Pourri (by SMN)...

    I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting about.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
