Alluring and masculine, JOOP! WOW! Eau De Toilette is a vibrant fragrance housed in a whisky inspired bottle for the authentic and confident modern man. This powerful fragrance opens with top notes of bergamot, cardamom and violet before fading into geranium and fir resin heart notes. Raw, creamy vanilla, cashmere and Tonka bean base notes linger afterwards for hours.
The Aesop Marrakech Intense EDT is a woody and oriental unisex fragrance made in collaboration with French perfumer Barnabé Fillion. Combining innovation and tradition in a perfect mix, it opens with fresh, light floral top notes. Gradually fading into raw and animalistic base notes, this fragrance is for the modern man dedicated to traditional values. Aesop Marrakech is the unorthodox fragrance missing from your collection.
