Scent Name: Folle de Joie
Scent Description and Notes: “Derived from the ease of California’s sea scented beaches and romanticized by Parisian charm, Folle de Joie captures the carefree yet sophisticated JOIE lifestyle. The scent opens with a burst of freshness from an intimate blend of calming sweet citrus mixed and a light woodsy floral, giving way to playful hints of rich cognac. Folle De Joie’s mid notes of jasmine and rose add a feeling of Summer’s carefree essence while exotic warm base notes of spicy and rich wood and leather nuances broaden the seductive scent” -http://www.joie.com/folle-de-joie
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is standard 1.5 ml clear glass vial with white spray cap. The vial has white, lower-case, Italic font displaying the name of the scent, while the designation of perfume type is below in similar, but much smaller font.
- ITI: It’s light, airy, with a gentle citrus, a hint of cognac, and a touch of gentle night-blooming florals. So far, so good.
- Wet: On my skin, this is absolutely delightful. It’s a perfect spring or summer scent – cool and refreshing while still being warm and exotic enough to be distinctly alluring through its combination of jasmine, light, white leather, gentle spice, airy white florals, and citrus mixed with a subtle cognac tinged with cucumber. This scent makes me want to don a dress for a garden party, which is a feat unto itself since I generally despise the process of having to shuffle my necessities into a purse and totter around on heels for several hours.
- Dry: The scent remains light and airy, maintaining the distinct notes of rose petals, cognac, a touch of spice, and gentle citrus. It’s absolutely lovely and worth a try at the very least.
Other Impressions: “What is that you’re wearing? It’s not like your normal scents? It smells like crushed citruses and roses.” -Tony
