About the Product

Joy perfume by Jean Patou is a timeless and foundational floral perfume first released in 1930 behind the nose of perfumer Henri Almeras. This legendary fragrance is a blend of jasmine, rose and tuberose over a musky sandalwood base. Joy changed the history of perfumery with its opulence, using 10,000 jasmine flowers and 28 dozen roses to create a mere 1 ounce of scent.

Fragrance Family:

Floral

Scent Type:

Sweet, animalic, rich, intense, powdery

Notes:

Top notes are Bulgarian Rose, Ylang-Ylang and Tuberose; middle notes are Jasmine and May Rose; base notes are Musk and Sandalwood.

Suggested Use

For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.

This classic perfume list filled with sensual musk, Lang Lang blossom, rose, pear, iris root, jasmine, and tuberose. At the time of its release in 1930, it was considered the world's most expensive fragrance. But with its timeless essence, it proved its staying power and it's sure to be around for years to come. All right everyone, that's all for today. Remember, if you want to see more reviews on your favorite products, subscribe to our YouTube channel.

FAQ

What does Joy smell like?

Joy is a beloved floral fragrance that signaled opulence in the early 1930s. This bestselling fragrance was a beacon in a time of uncertainty all over the world. It achieves the same effect today with its bold yet feminine symphony of rare flowers. Tuberose and ylang-ylang awaken the spirit to comforting jasmine and two varieties of rose over sandalwood and rich musk.

What kind of scent is Joy?

Joy is a classic floral, with no fruit or citrus notes. Joy is available in both eau de perfume, or EDP, and eau de toilette, or EDT, concentrations. The EDP is the more concentrated option. Joy is a versatile and elegant scent for all special occasions.

What are the notes in Joy?

  • Top Notes: tuberose, ylang-ylang, Bulgarian rose
  • Heart Notes: jasmine, Rose de Mai
  • Base Notes: sandalwood, musk

What season is Joy best for?

Although Joy is a true floral, it is often worn in fall because of its pronounced musky base. Joy is also appropriate for spring and summer wear.

Is Joy suitable for all occasions?

Joy is a strong perfume, so a light application is important for daytime events. This is especially true for the EDP concentration, while the EDT is more flexible. A full application is suitable for evening events, date nights and special occasions.

Can it be worn by both men and women?

Joy is designed for women, and its notes of white florals and rose are hallmarks of classic feminine perfumery. Anyone with an interest in vintage fragrances or fragrance history can enjoy this foundational scent.

Where do you apply Joy?

For a full and long-lasting application, apply Joy to pulse points at the backs of the ears, hollow of the throat, inner elbows and wrists. A lighter hand is key for daytime events. Choose one pulse point or spray a small cloud over the neck and chest.

How long does it last?

Joy is famously long-lasting in both its EDP and EDT concentrations. One full application of the EDT remains noticeable for 10 hours, while the EDP lasts 12 hours and lingers the next day.

Where is the best place to buy Joy?

Joy can be purchased at major department stores, but FragranceX is a solid option for buying perfumes and colognes online. FragranceX sells authentic, quality fragrances at discount prices, allowing you to save up to 80% off.

A 1969 gift

I received my ounce of Joy from my boyfriend, at the time, when he returned from spending his summer in Europe, 1969. He, of course, later became my husband. With my gift of Joy who could say, "No". We married in 1970 and just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. What may surprise you is

that I still have about 1/16 of an ounce of the perfume. It is still in the original glass holder with the green leather cradling the precious Joy. I have saved it all these years so I can tell all who are thinking of buying Joy, it is worth it. Good Luck!

Joy toilette spray

used Joy for over 40 years. I bought the Joy toilette water just to see if it was the Joy sent. Joy perfume is not an amber color. This stuff w3as old and smelled like varnish. I had to wash it off because it was so strong. I wrote to customer service and I'm waiting for an answer. Joy is clear

The classics remain great

Joy has been my favorite scent for decades. I could afford expensive perfume until recently. A chronic disease forced me to apply for and receive Disability. I am grateful that I can purchase samples and/or small amounts of the fragrances I love, through FragranceX, even though I am on a fixed income. Everyone wants to experience elegance, whatever their income!

Would not buy this again

Very disappointed in Joy. I had ordered the mini size of Joy Forever and liked it, also Joy 1000 which I don't like. I was hoping the Joy would work for me. To be quite honest, do not know how it can be as popular as what it supposedly is.

The real Perfume, no Eau de or toilet water....

I was wearing the REAL Perfume 46 years ago when I met my 2nd husband and he goes crazy after it to date. I used the bath oil, dusting powder, the works, and the fragrance was still on me and my clothes a week later. The remarkable thing is that I saved the bottle, found it recently in a box, and took the cap off and we could still smell the fragrance in the empty bottle. Just thought I would share this remarkable story. I can tell you truthfully, from experience, the Eau de Joy doesn't hold a candle to the real thing!

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Diluted to the Point of Negligence

I used this perfume daily until recently when, in order to cut costs, the industry downgraded the "fixateur" in the formula. And kept the price up. If anyone knows anything about perfume, they have noticed. If not, watch the documentary "Perfume" on Netflix. You are being had.

Indolic grand floral

This fragrance in the opening is roses and more roses on my skin. Then the indolic tuberose and jasmine come and are a bit to much for some people but I love florals that are a bit to much. Joy is a perfume that says approach carefully, this rose has thorns. You have to take your time with Joy, she demands respect she is all class and dignity. She is high tea in the afternoon and only the best of everything is accepted in her life. She may not be easy going but just under the surface of those overwhelming florals is a softness that shines through in the dry down and then Joy reveals her true character, that of a soft and tender hearted woman who only wants to be loved. This perfume highlights a time when all things were elevated, when we dressed in our finest clothes for even the most mundane events. This is a treasured classic in my collection and is appreciated by women who appreciate style, class and want a pieces of yesteryear.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Watered Down to Nothing

I've used Joy daily for decades along with other classic fragrances. All western perfumes are now 90% alcohol with "fixers" cheapened and commodified. I now go to unknown essence creators in Delhi to purchase either pure flower oils or have them mixed. And yes, I know the industry and for those who don't, please watch the Netflix documentary "Perfume."
