Jean Patou brings us JOY FOREVER

See also

Until just a few moments your LA Beauty Examiner was a slave to Chanel #5.“But the perfume company Jean Patou has just changed all that.” I just took my first whiff of the new JOY FOREVER and baby it’s good. Sexy, classy, elegant, expensive smelling, just heady enough and slightly retro of the first JOY created in 1929. I happen to still have a bottle of the original JOY which was part of my late mother's fragrance collection. The old scent reminds me more of a hoarse and throaty, sexy actress like Lauren Bacall, the new one favors Jennifer Lawrence types.

The aroma speaks floral, diffusing same notes of the original fragrance spiced with Rose de May and Jasmine – it’s the “Patounade,” a secret blend of JEAN PATOU fragrances, but with a modern twist of cedarwood, sandalwood, marigold, orange flower and peach. While I prefer to wear it evenings when I’m dressed for dinner or the theatre, the new scent can play out during the day, too. But it just goes so well when you’re wearing your finest frocks and shoes.

JOY Forever comes in a glass flacon topped with a rose gold cap that was crafted by interior designer Louis Sue and sells for $155.00 at NeimanMarcus.com. Men, this is the perfect gift for that woman (or women) in your life and girls, for any BFF or yourself. If you love classics with a modern spin, you will want JOY FOREVER.
