The bottle can look like the most beautiful thing I?ve ever seen, but the important thing is how it smells.
Top notes: Violet Leaf, Bergamot, Cardamom.
Middle notes: Fir Balsam, Geranium, Vetiver.
Base notes: Cashmeran, Vanilla, Tonka Bean.
Joop WOW?opens with some rather punchy top notes. Violet leaf, bergamot and cardamom fill the nose with a spicy combination of floral and citrus.
As it dries, the fragrance levels to a woody and masculine nose of fir balsam, vetiver and geranium.
And once it?s completely dried, you?re left with the base notes. For me, this is the most important part of a fragrance as it?s what will be left on your skin. The tonka bean and vanilla combine to create a bittersweet scent that lingers softly on the skin.
Joop WOW?is bright and punchy?but levels out to a bold and masculine fragrance that hovers over the skin.
