Joop Go, aftershave is a great fragrance for the summer in my opinion.
I was first introduced to the Joop brand in the form of Joop Homme many years ago, after my mum got it for me as a christmas present. I grew tired of the deep winter woody smell of the original Joop Homme fragrance a while ago, but still kept getting the odd bottle off my mum for my birthday, until she surprised me with a bottle of Joop Go, and I made sure I made a big deal about it, so that she would always get me the Joop Go fragrance in the future.
These Joop fragrances were founded by a German fashion designer named Wolfgang Joop in 1987, who branced into fragrances after several years of selling designer clothing ranges under the same name - Joop.
Joop Go comes in a nice bright green cardboard box, and inside the box is a tall, slim, clear glass bottle which contains the fragrance.
Joop in general seem to like the fragrances to be coloured in extremely bold colours, and Joop Go is no exception to the trend, as it shines through the clear glass bottle with it's bright green solution looking very tempting and inviting. The bottle has a nice silver top on it, which smoothly pulls off to reveal the silver spray mechanism.
The scent of the fragrance is very fresh and fruity which makes it ideal for wearing in the summer in my opinion. It opens with top notes of rhubarb, pimento and bitter orange, blending into a heart of cypress, violet and bourbon geranium, atop a smooth base of musk and balsam fir. This might sound a bit feminine to some, and it does smell fruity and very floral, but in a kind of masculine way!
I find that the scent, although very fresh and fruity at first does not last as long as might have been expected, especially if compared to the original Joop Homme, which hangs around forever! I often find that the scent of Joop Go is difficult to detect after a few hours of wearing it, which is a little disappointing, especially considering the intense and strong staying power of Joop Homme.
In terms of the price, Joop Go generally retails at approx £25:00 - £30:00 for a 75ml bottle, with the 50ml bottle generally costing around the £20:00 region.
Joop also have a large range of fragrances available including:
As well as fragrances, Joop also produce shower gels and shaving balms in the above scents.
