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.

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.
