    Default Niche fragrances similar to Joop homme?

    I love vintage Joop Homme and I’m curious to see if there’s a niche fragrance that might be similar with more depth or slightly more interesting? Any help would be appreciated.

    I agree entirely.
    There’s something else going on.

    Not sure that Mont Blanc is niche, but it smells very similar.

    Creed Original Santal of course. 1000 times better quality.

    Yes, Creed Original Santal and it's lookalike Individuel ... Very nice fragrances. But smell like Joop? Really? I don't get the similarity. Maybe both are sweet. There's a thousand sweet but dissimilar scents. I don't see any likeness.

    I know. Thought about that before I answered. I decided to include it because I've heard some people who's opinion I respect actually prefer it to the other two. And the three are usually mention in conjunction.

    I wore Joop Homme for years on an almost daily basis.

    I've tried Individuel and Original Santal. You should try both but in all honesty I found both poorer alternatives of Joop. Far less enjoyable to wear, even the Creed. I find the performance of current bottles to be ideal - far from the mammoth beats of yesteryear.

    However, I have replaced Joop with Parfums de Marly's Layton. It's not identical and is surely denser and more powerful as a scent, but I would say it fits nicely in with the same elements of Joop Homme, some similar accords, while having some upmarket designer/niche elements as well.

    Creed's Original Santal will be a decent bet, but I'd recommend Layton.
