Layering is the key to making your fragrance last all day. With the Joan Vass L'eau de Améthyste Gift Set, you can lather, slather, and spritz on this fresh scent.

Joan Vass

Birchbox Breakdown

A deeper, muskier fragrance definitely has its time and place, but light and crisp is a little more on par for an everyday scent—and this luxe perfume from American fashion label Joan Vass has earned a place in our rotation. Clean and citrusy, it’s perfect for daytime wear, but can still hold its own after hours.

How it Works

Top notes of star ruby grapefruit and Italian bergamot meet middle notes of red currant, ylang ylang, and rose oil. Rounding out the scent are slightly sweet, earthy bottom notes like patchouli, vanilla tincture, and vetiver.

How to Use

Spray on pulse points like your neck, wrists, and behind ears.

ALCOHOL DENAT., FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), WATER (AQUA), BHT, BENZOPHENONE-2, FD&C YELLOW #5, FD&C BLUE #1, D&C RED #33

Signature fragrance
SampledPurchased

I wore this sent out with my husband over the winter and he loved it. Light enough for the office. Everyone compliments me when I wear this fragrance - one of a kind signature scent.

Musky Perfume
Sampled

The perfume was a little too musky for me. It's just not something I can wear everyday. Not terrible though!

too strong and musky for me
Sampled

Just a few sprays and I knew this was too strong for me. It was too musky to enjoy, but a friend loved it! To each his own!

Not my style
Sampled

So of course, it's long-wearing, because I didn't want to smell like it for 7 hours! it's a very strong white flowers kind of scent on me, almost no citrus at all.

Love this Fresh Scent
Sampled

As a person who hates extra "girly" scented perfumes, this is perfect - cologne-ish and fresh, like shampoo almost, and really not offensive. I love it and could wear it every day!

Nice scent for winter
Sampled

This was a nice scent for the colder months as it is pretty musky. However, the scent did not last long enough to warrant purchase.

My Secret Weapon!
Sampled

Every time I wear this, I get compliments. I've been looking for a signature scent, and since most of my girlfriends wear the same thing, this is my answer!

I really liked the product. If I ever consider changing my perfume, I will probably switch to this. It is affordable for the quality.

Great scent!
Purchased

I purchased this scent by accident when ordering a different Joan Vass scent. I liked this one so much that I ended up keeping it. The scent stays with me and does not wear off, and is very clean smelling.

Me Likey!

Nice scent -- good for evenings out and more of a seductive smell and something to use when going out. I had never heard of the brand so I'm glad I got to try it out.
