For the year of 2019, JOOP! prepared a new version called JOOP! Homme Absolute, which opens a new chapter for the JOOP! Homme fragrance. This time, its bottle is black with a yellow logo, and the house adds that “black is the new pink.” JOOP! Homme Absolute’s composition is signed by master perfumer Antoine Maisondieu (Givaudan).
The fragrance combines a very unexpected floral note with unmistakably masculine basics. It opens with a spicy note of black pepper. This energetic and attractive overture gives way to the flower of Ylang-Ylang, which is more commonly used in feminine perfumes. On the other hand, the base is a very powerful blend of viral notes: fresh and aromatic vetiver, rich tonka bean and a hint of precious incense.
