Jean Patou Joy Eau de Parfum spray. First launched in 1930, leading couturier Jean Patou created Joy as a gift to American women who could no longer afford his clothes following the stock market crash of 1929. Joy celebrates the fragrance of memories of the past and future. The top notes are composed of jilt tuberose, ylang-ylang blossom, aldehydes, sweet pear and green notes. The heart of the scent contains a unique blend of 10600 flowers of jasmine and 28 dozens of roses. The base finishes with musk, sandalwood and musky civet tones.
