Advantages: Reasonably priced, lasts well.
Disadvantages: Nice but not one of my favourites.
This fragrance, so I am told, is the first to be created by the daughter of the designer, Joop. Jette Joop has created an unusual fragrance with this one.
Jette Joop was bought for me as a birthday present by my sister-in-law and brother. It was packaged, along with matching toiletries, in an attractive presentation box. Sometimes I think that I appreciate the boxes more than the actual scent!
I can't quite make up my mind about this one. I like it but don't love it. When first applying I find it too strong. However, after about ten minutes or so, I find the aroma softens and becomes more pleasant. It is quite a smooth sensual scent, which I think would appeal to many females. I admit that I don't think I would buy this one for myself, although as a gift it isn't unwelcome. Also, I do like to try new scents. It does seem to be a scent that can 'grow on one' and it is different from many scents, making it a welcome addition to ones perfume collection.
I was actually surprised at how long this lasted. I thought it would be light weight on first applying, and another one that lasted for an hour or two and then needed to be reapplied. But no, it doesn't. It surprised me, and remained detectable for some hours. I will also say that, for me, the smell continues to improve greatly as it is worn.
I would definitely choose to wear this more as an evening fragrance than daytime, due to it being strong and sensuous.
At first, when I was given this perfume I considered it as one for the young girls but, on becoming accustomed to its scent I have changed my mind. I am now of the opinion that Jette Joop is suitable for all ages to wear and particularly for that special occasion.
Joop Jette is said to be 'aromatic seductive and romantic' So, what goes into it to achieve this?
It has notes of coriander, pear, pepper, iris, rose, musk, Tonka bean & cedar.
Mine came in a mauve box and I found this an attractive gift. If purchasing the eau de Toilette on its own then it will be packaged in a mauve box with white and some gold lettering.
The bottle itself is a nice, simple but pretty design. Its almost heart shaped but extends outwards to the front. The lid has a silver collar and the stopper is mauve to match the liquid which can be seen through the glass bottle.
The shape of the bottle makes it handy to take out in a handbag.
PRICES AND STOCKISTS
My Joop Jette gift box was purchased from a high street perfume store. As it was a gift I don't know the exact price. I think it would have been in the region of twenty to twenty five pounds.
I have found some prices from online retailers which may help. They are:
EDT Spray 50ml- £28.50
EDT Spray 75ml- £40.50
EDT Spray 50 ml- £14.99
EDT Spray 75 ml- £19.99
The Perfume Emporium:
EDT Spray 75 ml- £30.74
Summary: This is one worth trying but you will need to wear it for a while to judge.
