I had heard many good things about joop, and after thinking it was time for a change in aftershave I decided to take a smell of one of the sample bottles on my travels at superdrug in local shopping centre...

You haven't smelt anything like this, it really is beautiful if I must say, and amongst the other aftershaves I like this one definately wins.

The bottle is transparant with a dark murky purple twist lid that tightens easily and opens just as easily. The colour of the aftershave in the bottle is what I would describe best as the same rosie shade as turkish delight, it makes a change to your usual yellow-ish and blue aftershaves. Do not let the colour make you think this is a girly aftershave however, as you will find that 'homme' is french for man ;)

The box is quite tall, and has a colour scheme matching the afterhave itself, but in a metallic effect which fades into a darker shade towards the top of the box. The contents of the box is simply the aftershave, which you can get to very easily in the box, avoiding silly leaflets and advertisements.

About time I described the scent really, after its the main purpose of the product. The top notes of the product are bergamont and cinnamon. I did hear somewhere that it contained tabacco extract, but I am yet to read this anywhere else. It also has jasmine amongst its middle notes and sandalwood and amber in the basenotes.

My own opinion on the fragrance is that it is a soft sweet and woody scent, is enough to be smelt all day and isn't over powering or harsh on the nose. I also do notice a hint of lavendar in the mixture but havent read it anywhere on the net.

It doesn't aggitate my skin, which can be sensitive to product, and the smell lingers for the progression of the day. When I tried the sample on my hands, it was still there after washing them throughout the day, but this doesn't mean that the scent is sickly over powering such as an uneducated pubescent boys attempt at hiding his b.o with cheap deodrant en masse.

I do get compliments upon wearing joop homme, so if you would like also I would suggest this afterhave to you :)

Its average price in most stores is around £30, but I bought mine 75ml in splash bottle (no spray) for £16 in bodycare, it is more than worth the money at this price, and would still be so at £30!

Excellent review

it looks red on the net, is more of a vimto/turkish delight colour in reality :)

It sounds rather nice and worth a sniff of a tester x
