In a fragrance world replete with similar smelling fragrances, it’s refreshing to come across a scent that’s genuinely different and utilises a couple of ingredients that aren’t commonplace in most men’s perfumes. The newly launched Absolute fragrance from JOOP! is a modern update on the 30 year old classic, using punchy vetiver and spicy black pepper alongside the two more unusual ingredients of tonka bean and exotic ylang ylang.
Initially it’s a rich and spicy fragrance with a floral scent that emerges gradually and sticks around all day, refreshing and very fresh.
I would say it’s a fragrance that is well-suited to both day and night and it’s warm notes are a good match for this time of year when the air temperature can be cold and weather harsh.
I’ll be wearing this throughout the next few months as we gradually transition from Winter to Spring, particularly in the evening when the scent really comes into it’s own alongside a velvet blazer, roll neck or crisp white shirt.
