My Review of Joop Femme
I ordered Joop Femme blind, as it was pretty cheap and had sum great reviews. When i finally got round to try it, it seemed like a big mistake. Joop Femme opens up Strong, sharp, and with a very chemical scent to my nose. ALots of Aldehydes! And while I was wondering what to do with this huge bottle, warm creamy sandalwood starts to waft around. Amazing. The dry down of this perfume is worth the wait.
Joop Femme is sweet, fruity floral, delicious amber goodness with a hearty helping of sandalwood. It is very perfumey, so if you wish for something subtle, this is not for you. Its not like the current day sweet, candied fruity florals, but it isn’t dated as well. Jasmine combined with sandalwood, and slightly spicy, this fragrance seems more suited to a woman than a girl.
Sillage is strong and longevity is amazing, a few sprays, and it will keep you company throughout the day. Just give it a few minutes to settle, don’t judge it by its opening.
It could be worn throughout the year, and suitable for office wear if applied with a light hand. This is the perfume i spray myself with when I want to read a book in bed the whole day, with a mug of coffee for company.
Bottle is just functional, and does not do justice to the juice inside. Plain glass with a semi-transparent cap, very boring.
Availability: it is easily available online at heavily discounted prices, and haven’t seen it in any shop till now.
Do I recommend it: yes, if you are looking for a mature perfume. It is not meant for college girls.
