If you can’t take your Valentine to St. Barts for the holiday, then consider the next best thing: Jouany St. Barthélemy, the fragrance that brings the island into your bedroom.
Fragrance leads us deep into memory, returning us to places where we left a piece of our heart and soul. For fashion photographer Christophe Jouany, the scents of his hometown on the island of St. Barthélemy moved him to create his first fragrance.
For more than a decade before his perfume’s public launch in 2011, Jouany wore a fragrance of his own creation. The fragrance generated such enthusiasm from Jouany’s friends and family that he created his own line.
As anyone who has spent time on St. Barts knows, the journey there requires patience and fortitude – but once situated on the luxuriant isle, the rewards are abundant.
Refined and sophisticated, Jouany St. Barthélemy opens with a splash of white grapefuit before melting into heart notes that mingle jasmine and cedarwood with a hint of vanilla. Imagine walking Shell Beach early in the morning, water lapping your feet, the air redolent with tropical flora.
Later, you might brunch in Gustavia, at which point Jouany St. Barthélemy will have settled into its base notes of patchouli and sandalwood. A blush of Champagne on your lips, the scent of white musc lingers on your skin.
An eau de parfum, Jouany St. Barthélemy is made in France of 68% pure essential oils of the highest quality. The fragrance was listed as an “Editor’s Favorite” by Allure magazine.
With Jouany St. Barthélemy, an idyllic island life bursts into being.
