Joy de Jean Patou: Class in a bottle.
Upon first smelling this fragrance, I knew immediately why Joy is the 2nd best selling parfum of all time (beaten out by one fragrance alone, Chanel No.5). Apparently, I'm not alone in my love of this opulent, blooming elixir. I detect literally ZERO civet, nothing animalic or even close to it;... Read more

Naturalistic Roses & Jasmine Coupled with Aldehydes

Don't push me!
For the last few days I kept watching Joy. I saw the initial sparkling laugh, all stemming from the trumpets of gorgeous flowers and I felt pushed to smile because it was like asking me to share the Joy. My smile disappeared and so did the sparkling laugh. And there was another try, another laugh,... Read more

patou joy
I've written and mentioned this a few times recently, so I suppose I'm trying to prove a point to myself: I don’t view my life as a narrative.  I suppose this is one reason that, although I'm very emotional about perfume, I'm not terribly romantic about it.  To call memory a reflection of...

Right now, right here!!
SEX ... sex for breakfast, sex for lunch and sex for tea!!! Joy is sex in a bottle!! Raunchy, forbidden sex in the alleyway of a nightclub with someone you just met and didn't bother to ask a name! The aldehydes and tuberose on top are a primal scream with the civet, adding a frisson of freshly... Read more

Emperor Approved!
Unfortunately, Jean Patou's JOY edp does not fill me with joy. I want to love it, but from the very first moment I am accosted by the dark, heavy civet, which overtakes all of the florals and makes the composition very hard for me to appreciate. I love the bottle; I love the story; I love the... Read more

Royal roses that tend to be fussy in terms of skin chemistry
It was Joy by Jean Patou's allure and greatness that urged me to accept a very generous sample from a friend when it was so kindly offered to me. Being the scent of choice for almost 80 years to various celebrities and members of the royal family, Queen Elizabeth II herself, I was expecting to be... Read more
