    Angry FAKE Joop Homme??? (Pics include)

    Good Morning!
    How are we all?
    Today i bought a Bottle of JOOP! HOMME 125 ml for 22 dollars.
    The woman was desperated for money so sold it in a blink of an eye.
    Since ive arrived home and opened the sealed bottle ive notest a strange and very known smell....JPG LE MALE!
    I went to checkcosmetics and the batch code returned january 2011....seemed legit but...still smelling LE MALE.
    Heres the pics of the box inside this advertising ....

    Take a look to the lettering and red-ish ink

    The ingredients and others things are redish to and hard to read...
    I was steady taking the photos, the lettering is just like in the photos....very hard to read.

    It's possible that the packaging changed over time and that might account for the differences you see between the two. You stated it was sealed, so I would guess it's legit.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Im sure of it!
    What pisses me off is that the woman who sold it wasnt aware that it was fake. And i tried to help her because she was needing money and now i dont have the courage to ask a refund.
    She has several fragances and JOOP! was among them so i offered money. I really cant blame her.
    Lesson learned.

    I admit that first photo is pretty suspect.

    Happy to hear that... 22 dollars was not that much, but you can get good things on a similar price tag...

    Amazing to think they'd fake something already so cheap.
    I'm a Joop! fan and this is clearly a fake but I also wanted to point out that the OP said it was sealed when he got it (also pointed out by hednic).
    I've never known any Joop! Homme (or any Joop products) to have any shrink wrapping or seal.
    So this would further indicate a fake.

    Thank you for your reply!
    Yes it was fake and smelled terrebly and no sillage and no projection.

    Just to confirm my 2019 Joop! Homme bottle also has no wrapping/sellophane, glad to hear that's the legit way they are sold.
    Must..smell.....good!!

    Yes, too many things look or are wrong about it. You can also check the spray hole because on some fakes it's not centered. In this case, I think Coty was making these newer bottles, certainly not Parfums Joop!
