The contaminated riding hall
I first got my first taste of Joop Homme at the tender age of 16. And I thought he was really good at first. He was cute, okay, but in a reasonable dose he could be really pleasant with his vanilla-woody tones. An equally young guy wore this fragrance, very discreetly dosed and of course only for going out in the evening. I liked it (the scent, the intimidated boy sometime no longer). Sweet, cuddly, cuddly. A good fragrance from the house of Joop, just like Nuit d'Eté and Berlin, which I had on my wish list at the time.

For many years, I consciously did not come across a wearer of this scent, until - it must have been 2003 or 2004 - I had to move into a new stable with my then riding participation horse. There was a riding instructor there who bathed in Joop Homme. Such olfactory combatants, which were revealed to me there during my sporting leisure activities, were unknown to me until then. And that of a student with five semesters of chemistry on her back. And believe me, not everything smells of violets - not to mention the strong silage of some cooking experiments in the laboratory.

But nothing else could compete with these olfactory grenades. The man, an elderly gentleman who had already passed the age of 60, entered the riding hall and within seconds it was contaminated. Normally I was used to riding instructors who always managed to get their eleves on horseback to concentrate with a Bundeswehr-like loud organ. With Mr. P., on the other hand, there were olfactory drones. And we are talking about an indoor riding hall, 20 x 40 meters. There p
* and k
* horses in it, it actually smells like a stable, like a horse, and on top of that they smoked in riding halls at that time, and not too close. All these smells had no chance against Joop Homme of Mr. P. Even when he gave lessons on the outdoor riding arena, we still felt the need to air out. Beaten to death with a heliotrope slingshot. Shouted at by jasmine and cinnamon, who constantly fought each other and especially the vanilla was not the best friend in this always exhausting environment of the farm. Tonka couldn't save anything and Patchouli sank into the olfactory stable-all.

I never processed that! When I smell this smell today, I want to run away. Far, far away. Preferably at a striding gallop. Giddyup!

...Ludenbomber..
Kalle, in certain situations also called Ralle!, is a lude from Recklinghausen who goes up to 4 times a week under the Ghettotoaster. Sitting broad-legged in front of his "line", occasionally grasping his hand at his crotch, he whistles after every little ug that sneaks past him. "Hey, doll, stop right there!" he's groaning after him. His hydrogen blonde mulcow hairstyle is always top styled. His 585 gold chain dangles around his wide neck, which connects to his torrero bull neck. Always a close look at his left arm, where his Rolex Daytona platinum prances casually. Chewing gum, he throws a big grin at his buddy: "Club, what day?"

Kalle gets up and marches on string tracks with his pump jogging pants and the fine-ribbed shirt into his boot and checks the situation. He reaches over the counter, sips his protein shake and takes another few splashes of his "Prinzporno-Wässerchens", from which he feels he has a bottle in every room of his establishment.
Top motivated he slaps off his buddy, sits down on his fire chair and shoots off. His hair is smashing on his solarium-tanned skin.

In no time at all he is at the lake, where his fire stool settles in the coarse-grained sand. No topic for Kalle, he extends the stand, parks the hot oven, takes a running start, shouts: "BOOmmBeeeee", and claps like a Germanic foundling on the water surface. Broad grinning he appears, his posse is already crouching on the shore laughing: "Ham is waiting for you, RAALLLEEE!" Who thinks, the towel comes now... no Kalle dieselt himself first and rubs himself dry with the hands and Homme - why a towel. The heliotrope cinnamon vanilla bomb is spreading all over the gravel ball. "Kalle!", shrine them all: "You're the greatest!", Kalle grins and lets herself be celebrated.....

For me one of the most crude (in the positive sense) fragrances of the late 80s and 90s. Here something was created, which did not exist in the form yet and does not really exist until today. You have to dare him - not for everyone - but unfortunately, I find him just skilful.

the only downside is it says "Joop" on it. I had to wait on that pompous guy at the hotel. here I don't continue writing, otherwise it is still called "slander"...
All in all a milestone of this time and an evergreen

This scent reminds me of my brother for all eternity
I remember today, my brother was all dressed up... for the 90s. That means Carlo Colucci sweater, Diesel or his favorite Picaldi - pants, white Nikesocken into which he has then put the pants and his great Air Max 1 .... He was felt 3 hours in the bathroom, his hair was done and sat 1 A: and then he reached into the cupboard and there he stood: The pink slightly globby flacon ... with the inscription Joop Homme... and then it was time, he sprayed the scent, and it was like an explosion... He sprayed such a quantity... that he never gets out of my nose until today...
He loved this noble fragrance, hot and intimate, and from that moment on I always had the right gift for him ... But as life sometimes plays out, our ways have unfortunately separated and we are unfortunately quarrelled and do not even talk to each other anymore... but sometimes, when I smell this fragrance, I hope or wish that it is my brother, who is standing right there behind me and we forget everything and start all over again, and take each other in our arms and think back to the good times .... My brother has left my life, but this fragrance will stay forever ...❤️

I am REALLY shocked....
One thing up front, I would love to rate this fragrance if the difference between vintage (1st Lancaster version) and today's (mid-2020 batch) wasn't so severe....

I encountered the fragrance (again) a few years ago. The first time smelled; immediately taken back to early youth. So brutal as with this fragrance I have NEVER experienced. Although I could not track down to this day, who wore it, but this someone, and this fragrance must have played a big role in that time. A time that let me feel only positive things associated with this fragrance.
Alone for nostalgia reasons, the fragrance burned itself into my brain, until I finally bought a bottle of it. Already there it was the Coty variant, but the comparison to the vintage version I did not know until then. I was satisfied... until the bottle flew to the floor after infrequent wear and the contents spread all over it.... The bathroom smelled for days afterwards....
Thus ordered a new bottle, this time from 2020... somehow pack me no longer... everything so brutally synthetic, the floral chords stand out immensely, the sweetness was also no longer the, as I once perceived it... maybe it's my nose, but maybe it was reformulated again? Durability and sillage - although still good - no longer so strong... or am I about odor-blind become?

By chance here in the Souk (thanks again) get a full vintage cornflower--version.
What can I say?

I could have cried... I was overwhelmed... Shit, YAAAA!!! THIS is it!!! So present as never before! So brutally full-bodied, the finest cherry juice, slightly tart at the beginning (which is both completely missing in the current version) and this irresistible sweetness that lingers for hours! The vanilla, which I find discreet and only appears in the background over time, the finely integrated floral chords (where does this synthetic crap come from the current version, which was skillfully and only discreetly used in the Vintage?) and the subtle sandalwood note, which increases somewhat towards the end. Funnily enough, the sandalwood comes with me at my elbows more strongly than in other places, and how should it be otherwise; never as pungent and synthetic as in the current version.
Just everything much more elegant... Would pass today in my opinion as a niche fragrance!

Sillage and durability in this version really a beast. Is loved by my girlfriend. I think you mentioned in the first hour every 5 minutes, how good I would smell yet (when she tried the current variant at home, she said it would be a completely different fragrance!)
The presence lingers for several hours, which is extreme for my skin. Even after a good 24h you can still smell him skin.

I can understand that today's version is hated by some.... but how on earth could not love this vintage version!? Although so on the face, but also so awesome!
Funnily enough, I personally think that today's version smells much more vintage than this one I just described....

What have they just done with you!?

I must confess, however: If you do not know the vintage version, the current is still quite ok (apart from these penetrating synthetic flower chords). Finally, it was enough to put me back 30 years....
Nevertheless, I can now with direct comparison no longer give an assessment, because in my opinion it is no longer the same fragrance...

Long speech, short sense: Current version quite ok to revel in nostalgic times.... but more also not... Too bad about this once magical masterpiece!

UPDATE 08.11.21: Could now still test a Cotyversion of 2019 and 2012!

Version 2012: the fragrance is still very reminiscent of the Lancaster version, although the shelf life has already been reduced by quite a bit.

Version 2019: The fruity component and the cherry are still present, however, freshly applied you have the feeling it would be the vintage version after 5-6 hours... the floral accords are brought more to the fore here.... The magic of the former original is still guessable.... The durability and sillage were again reduced by some...

Version 2020: The shock variant!!! Cherry so to speak no longer present, only a pungent synthetic lily of the valley scent.... Sillage and durability... about the same as 2019...is probably due to the Lyral ban that this version seems so horribly unbalanced.... maybe the version of 2021 is a little better tuned?

Nostalgia
I'm posting an update to my old comment. Almost exactly 10 years ago I wrote an amateurish comment about this fragrance. After 10 years, an update on this beautiful classic that I still like very much. A fragrance that is very familiar to me, as I loved wearing it in my early 20s. Bruno Banani Man, Armani Code, Joop Homme and Cerruti 1881 were my favorites and old memories often come up when I smell these scents. Of course, typical bestsellers, which one wears after years of experience rather less. That one would like to smell more individual should not diminish these fragrances but.

Meanwhile 32 years old the fragrance and yet he smells modern, timeless and very sensual. For sure he has already had some reformulations, to which I can not say too much. I wore it 10 years ago and I also still have a very current bottle here. The current blend still smells very high quality and long lasting, which is not a given with many classics. It has stayed true to its origins: sexy, offensive, flirty, good-humored, headstrong and simply a fragrance you recognize immediately. Definitely a polarizing fragrance that you usually love or hate. No wonder, since he goes all out. Brachial also in the sillage and screams: Here I am! In addition, this eye-catching pink bottle. Catches the eye.
A fragrance description I save me. Pretty much everyone who is registered here knows this fragrance. Who does not know him by name, he has smelled at least once in a crowd. Especially in Germany one of THE classics. Bestsellers of course have a hard time on a fragrance platform like this. Also in the last years this classic was sold off in a grabbeltable manner. 200ml(!) for roundabout 30 Euro. No advantage to be unique. I have also moved away from this one. As a rule, I don't like to wear bestsellers. Not anymore. Not necessarily just niche, but bestsellers don't really fit my style and attitude.
Objectively for me, a perfect fragrance that I would definitely wear more often if this was unknown. He has that certain something. A very multi-faceted and well-coordinated fragrance with a pleasant sweetness. It goes down well and performs really well. Too good in many situations, which worsens with overdosing. However, the blame is not the fragrance, but the carriers which often seem very proletarian.
About 10 years ago, I also wore it in the summer. Nowadays there are definitv clearly better alternatives. Even if he is categorized in the diagram rather as an autumn / winter fragrance I would call him a year-round fragrance. There is something about it that puts you in a good mood. At least for me. With people who do not like the at all probably rather less. Only in hot and humid temperatures 0.0 suitable. Can work overdosed really bad.

I have it me as nostalgia reasons again zugelegt for this price. A fragrance that I like to wear for myself or in a small environment because it's just a beautiful scent. Outside the house or as a statement fragrance but no longer an alternative for me. Objectively speaking, many bestsellers cut off too bad here.
Who has no problem to smell like one of many has also made a great choice. Many like it, but the DNA is too well known to really knock people off their feet.

A classic masterpiece by Pierre Bourdon. A genius infusion of orange blossom, sweet and powdery notes, in a weird but influential way.

A floral scent tagged for men is always a Risk but this one has had a good ending: It is hip after 30 years! Synthetic? A lot, but nice...
