Too bad...
It is a pity that such fragrances are so little spread even by a relatively well-known brand like Jovoy. Somehow the question of the meaning of this hobby arises. Last week, the fifth or sixth Spicebomb derivative ran down my nose without me wearing a fragrance from the group, for example. And in between there is hardly anything left hanging that fascinates in a lasting way. Don't misunderstand! There are many fragrances which I like very much and which do not have any twin fragrances known to me. But the certain "aha" effect in the combination with a pronounced sense of pleasure is really rather the exception for fragrance samples of 1,000 or more.

Although I have already tried three to four Jovoys and I liked all of them well, as with the other 8,207 brands (as at 15.10.2018) it was not enough to taste the entire range of brands. And yet, the attention tends to get caught on fragrances whose brand you already know something about. And for this very reason I got stuck in the consumption of a video of Sebjar with this previously completely unknown scent of a brand well known to me. This Baseball cap wearer, who was very likeable to me and above all taken back, found the scent worth mentioning and expressed his enthusiasm so casually that my interest was clearly aroused. Of course there was nothing to be found in the souk and so I had to fall back on the mostly very well functioning community, namely in this case PanicRoom. A third THANK YOU! That way, my dear!

Seldom has it been so easy to order a bottle as here. First of all, it's not the Holy Grail. It's not revelation. But it has been a hitherto unknown approach to freshness, seasoning, smoke and leather that simply catches me. And the fascinating thing: Smoke and leather can't even be drained here in the pyramid. Incidentally, I am only in a few points in agreement with Yatagan's description in his commentary "Bitter Lesson". Patchouli is so far behind for me here that I wouldn't mention him at all. The double vetiver, on the other hand, does. Although I am an unconscious Vetiver fan, I often have to read it before I can smell it. But here it was already perceptible for me without a text. What I would otherwise take over from Yatagan is the mandarin, which provides the almost glistening, biting sharpness/freshness and is thus actually responsible for the coolness and metallicity described. I deny a notable relationship to Sycomore. Encre Noir in one breath.

All in all an impressive combination, which does not show a special variability in the course of time, but in the meantime and constantly omits a concrete definition and thus shimmers like pearls. For me a very masculine and modern fragrance that combines sportiness and understatement. Durability and Sillage are, as usual with Jovoy, on high level. The bottle is beautiful to look at, heavy, but clunky and therefore unwieldy. Packaging and atomizers are exemplary.

A strong appearance
Diplomacy, the art of negotiation, is ultimately closely linked to the ability to wrap criticism and aversion in fine words and to use good arguments to persuade one's counterpart to rethink. Jovoy's creation definitely has strong arguments.

When I visited Bologna in October, I was in the Antica Profumeria Al Sacro Cuore, among other places, where there are fragrances from many great niche brands to test - including Jovoy. I wanted to get Incident Diplomatique under my nose because, like Caligari, I became aware of it through YouTuber Sebastian and the statements and comments here made me curious. After I was sprayed on a strip of paper (no self-service!), I tested a lot of other scents, but I came back to the beginning - which was atypical for me. So the Jovoy was stubborn and fascinating at the same time.

It is not fresh, there is no trace of the mandarin and fortunately I do not find Incident Diplomatique to be herbaceous. All facets of vetiver (green, woody, earthy) are celebrated here and a thoroughly masculine, classic and uncompromising aura is achieved with dry, woody patchoulis. This combination is very reminiscent of private labels, but less resinous and leathery and instead greener and more characterized by dry smoke. The fragrance is also stubborn, because there is hardly any de facto one. Despite this apparent reduction, Jovoy has once again managed to create an intense and long-lasting fragrance that is both complex and natural.

The names of the Jovoy fragrances - in contrast to those of many other brands - seem to me to be very conclusive: Private label reminds of a good whiskey, Psychédelique lets the wearer travel into the hippie era thanks to the earthy patchouli and La Liturgie des Heures has a sacral effect through the dominant incense. The diplomatic incident consists of the interplay of strong notes of classic men's perfumes and the uncompromising, relentless power unleashed here. (At work, my fragrances are usually never commented, but my boss said this morning, I must have bathed in perfume...)

Now I don't like standing with one foot in the olfactory Stone Age at all - but in my opinion that's not the case with Incident Diplomatique and Jovoy at all. The brand's fragrances seem timeless to me. They are demanding, but in the end they manage to wrap me around my finger.

a little creaky on this parquet floor!
This diplomatic parquet is mirror-like, and anyone who does not move with the necessary skill risks an accident.

This cannot happen to "Incident Diplomatique"; he steps too firmly, his step is too little hesitation.
No, this fragrance is powerful and earthy; may even scratch your throat a little Vetiver, heavy with moisture, earthy and accordingly strong, just waiting for his buddy, my Darling Patchouli.
Before he arrives he holds some small-talk with a fruity, slightly tart tangerine; they harmonize well; have fun together.
And it is the same with grated nutmeg; they exchange and complement each other.
The result can be seen and smelled: It already has personality, this fragrance! But now patchouli is finally appearing: in creamy and wide-flowing, golden scents!
What an appearance; what a fragrant power, which at the same time embraces generously and flatteringly!
I always say: Patchouli reminds me of polished tiger's eye, of a stone with charm and beauty.
A few drops of sandalwood oil straighten the suit once again: everything fits perfectly!

It is not a "Faux Pas Diplomatique" that Joyoy offers here; also no "Eau de Diplomatique":
I find a mature, after some time even beguiling scent personality on my skin, which accompanies me for quite a long time.
She is not always in agreement, whether slightly scratchy or warm flowing flattering:
I almost believe that this "diplomatic accident" adapts to my mood.
Pourquoi pas?

Certainly not "everybody's darling", not a daily companion, but an entertaining guy for a little more than small talk - maybe even for certain hours.
Even if he wears rather firm boots than shiny patent leather shoes!

Dispute resolution in a friendly way
The diplomatic incident hits the parties to the dispute with full force, with mandarin in the top note and vetiver in the heart note as the protagonists. The mandarin is very voluminous and brings a great deal of freshness into play. So it gets straight down to business. The vetiver is very finely spun and takes up a lot of space. Its arguments are very coherent. It demands a lot of attention and tries to assert itself. It succeeds in doing so in a pleasant way. The patchouli and sandalwood mediate in this conflict for supremacy and skillfully cushion the fragrance. With Incident Diplomatique by Jovoy, Vanina Muracciole has succeeded in creating an exciting, refreshing fragrance that captivates the senses. The constant interplay of green mandarin and vetiver is very successful. The fragrance is fresh and pure and is ideal as a daytime scent for the office. Its longevity is remarkable. I went to my favorite perfumery, Brückner, on Munich's Odeonsplatz yesterday and had the fragrance sprayed onto a spray strip and then onto my wrist. The difference was immense. Even this morning I could still smell the scent on my skin, which has changed sensually. Really great. The sillage is also above average, it radiates well and adheres very well to the skin. Only a few sprays are needed to be prepared for the whole day. The price-performance ratio is also excellent. If you like vetiver fragrances, you should definitely try Incident Diplomatique. It is well worth it. Great cinema!

Olfactory impression
While not brash this fragrance leaves no room for subtleties, with the interplay of 2 varietals of Vetiver ( Haitian & Java) laced with Mandarin citrus that has a smooth intwined Nutmeg that brings for a seductive sweetness. Not to be left aloft the base comes on 30 mins in with one of the best Patchouli and Sandalwood accords I’ve gotten my nose on. Sweet, smoky, and citric.

A great clean, yet smoky vetiver. Citrus at the top, and spicy nutmeg give it a unique twist. Distinct and posh.
