Topic: how do you pronounce Joop?

I've heard this perfume pronounced several different ways (yoop, yope, joop).  Does anyone know the correct way to pronounce it?  Thanks!

Yoop!

I believe....

Re: how do you pronounce Joop?

think of the Spanish word 'yo' (that means I), pronounce that rather slowly and add a 'p' behind it glad

Re: how do you pronounce Joop?

I typed Joop! into google translate (german) and the automated voice pronounced it like "yoop" like the word "you" but add a 'p' on the end http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/tongue.png

Re: how do you pronounce Joop?

I checked on this one too cuz I was so perplexed as to how to pronounce.  The answer I got was "yope."

Too bad Jale's no longer here.  Surely we have some other girls from Deutschland??

Re: how do you pronounce Joop?

I reckon it should be pronounced goop (either a sticky-wet substance or a rude or ill-mannered person - as it is the olfactory equivalent of such).http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/21.gif
