Joy is timeless; it remains a strong, dynamic floral essence with an unmistakable stamp of wealth, breeding, and confidence. Though many clients, especially rich American women, were bankrupted by the 1929 stock market crash, Jean Patou exorcised the Depression by launching Joy.Designed as carefully as a Haute Couture dress, magnificent and timeless, Joy gathers extremely rare flowers in a unique concentration : 10,600 flowers of jasmine and 28 dozen roses compose the heart of a single ounce of Joy! And this is why Jean Patou joked that Joy would be “the costliest perfume in the world”. The irresistible wake of a generous armful of two exceptional raw materials, May rose and Grasse jasmine, matched only by ylang-ylang and tuberose. Magnificent and heady.
