Reviews of Joop! Femme

I wanted to first say I consider this a lighter scent in my collection. But lighter is not the best way to describe it, b/c it comes off strong and memorable. . I think maybe sweeter. It's an oriental woody but that doesn't describe it well to me. I know why I gravitate to it is the musk, civet, oakmoss, patchouli, amber, sandalwood, tonka I need to say more. It has all the qualities of a chypre which is my kind of scent. I think the best way to describe this is it's a cooler chypre. but there is still something a slight bit off. Something that is struggling with the sweetness...maybe the aldehydes. I don't know. I enjoy it at times but I don't wear it often.

This is quite a strong scent I still smell an hour after spraying it on. In that first hour, the notes haven't changed much: somewhat like a vanilla tiger balm.

I don't really smell flowers at all. More a very sensual, spicy wood. I could imagine this also being described as having a lightly smoked (could be the musk), 'clean' soap' scent.

I think this is a heavy woman's fragrence, fit for strong women who know what they want.

I remember buying this perfume the day it was launched and I fell in love with it. It was my signature scent for 3 years. It's a bold perfume but clean and simple, unlike the fragrances of today that are quite complex to a degree where some can be quite annoying. I never had any complaints from anyone when I wore this. I may buy a bottle one day just to reminisce.

My first passion

The name comes from the German designer and founder: Wolfgang Joop. I wore it every day for years and will now try to analyze it. My first impression is that it is such a good blend of various notes that nothing shouts. Together they conspire to create an impression of warmth. I detect Jasmine (my favorite), but there's something greener that rides above it and something woody that provides a base and mellows it. Joop is sensual, but it is not the boudoir. It's a candlelit dinner. Well, no. Even that's too intimate. It doesn't invite. It announces. "I'm a woman. Don't you wish you knew me."

Pros: Sensual but light
Cons: none"

Bought this at Walgreen's when they had a buy one, get one free offer and was wanting something new. It's okay, kind of strong top notes, but I like the base notes, not too powdery. I wear it for casual and at work. Hate the name, but I really don't understand the deal with naming perfumes and wines something weird. Joop, to me, sounds like something I would use to smear between bathroom tiles.

(1989) My all time fav, exactly my taste, the only one that stood the test of time in terms of my changing skin-chemistry and preferences.

If I had to choose for only one perfume for life - this is it. Without a doubt !

On my skin and to my nose it is sweet, spicy, heavy strong scent. It is serious, noticeable, demanding respect and attention and yet sensual. I sometimes even wear it for important work meetings...... ;)
