Perfume Description

Created in 1930, Joy is a classic, rich floral with notes of Bulgarian rose, ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine from Grasse and May rose.  A perfume you must smell if you have not. This is the PARFUM strength.

An excerpt from a review by Now Smell This

The Parfum, on the other hand, builds on the Eau de Toilette’s lighthearted theme to remind us that real joy is beautiful, calm, and lush, and may be most deeply appreciated by people who know that true pleasure isn’t as simple as it seems. The Parfum’s opening isn’t as crisp as the Eau de Toilette’s, and its heart of luscious roses and jasmine is richer. But the biggest difference between the Eau de Toilette and Parfum is in the dry down. The Parfum’s base is surprisingly spicy and animalic. Joy Parfum seamlessly morphs from a complex floral explosion to something darker, and unless you already knew Joy, you might not recognize the dry down and the heart as the same fragrance.

An excerpt from an article written by Luxury Activist

Among the icons of perfumery history there is Joy by Jean Patou. History says that after Henri Almeras had created the formula, Jean Patou himself asked to double the dosage.  Joy was voted “Scent of the Century” by the public at the Fragrance Foundation FiFi Awards in 2000.

  1. Vintage Joy and Je Reviens 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2013

    I had forgotten what Joy Parfum smells like, having only had EDT and EDP in recent years. Both lovely but there is no substitute for the extrait. Thank you. And Je Reviens! The dreck of recent decades was a heartbreaker although Couture is quite nice and an honest return to the original fragrance if lacking its lasting power. However, the vintage perfume that you sent me is beyond compare. I'm sixteen again!
