Those in search of a brighter floral scent will love Joya’s FvsS Composition No. 1 Parfum, which comes in a porcelain bottle with a gilded wand.

JOYA

Birchbox Breakdown

This new perfume has a storied pedigree. After reading The Book Of Lost Fragrances, a thriller that details the quest to locate a scent created in the days of Cleopatra, fragrance designer Frederick Bouchardy was inspired to bring the novel’s star scent to life. Even if thrillers aren’t your favorite literary genre, you’re sure to love the spellbinding blend of orange blossom, myrrh, and other exotic notes.

How it Works

The olfactory equivalent of a page-turner, this fragrance has notes of frankincense, myrrh, orange blossom, and jasmine. The rich, smoky finish gives the scent a sensual aura.

How to Use

A single dab on your wrist will suffice. Reapply as desired.

I love this
Purchased

I really like this scent. It is very different, and though it is light, it's perfect for summer. I will purchase it again.

My search is over.
Purchased

I have been searching for a new scent for 2 years. We are allergic to a lot of perfumes. I don't like a scent that is too sweet or cloying. This scent is a perfect blend of notes that has a woodsy scent with underlying flowery notes.
Just love it.

Underwhelmed, but you may like it!
Purchased

I like really deep sexy scents. I mean like Oud: dark, resinous, mysterious. I like the kind of scent that people either love or hate. So, when it comes to fragrance I am super picky. This was simply too light & had a floral dry down ( on me) So, if you are looking for a light spring fragrance this may be right up your alley.

Love this scent
Purchased

This is a nice mixture of subtle scents in a roll on. Be sure to keep the roll on upright though because in a makeup bag, it will leak. Highly recommend for women who like scent that is not overpowering.

Love this scent
Purchased

I love this scent because it's not overwhelming but it lasts most of the day. I work in a professional environment so I don't like to wear strong scents. This is perfect!

Not an everyday scent, but smells greats!
Purchased

This is not a scent that I could wear everyday, but it's still pretty great! I'd probably wear it more evenings/weekends going out, then for the office everyday. I tend to like scents that are very mild for during the day.

So Good!
Purchased

I love this scent so much. It's earthy with a hint of citrus, which keeps it from being too heavy. I'm someone who loves patchouli, but can never wear it because so many people hate the smell, including my spouse. This scent is a nice compromise, my husband even likes it.

unique, alluring fragrance
Purchased

this is a fragrance unlike any other... I get SO many compliments on it, especially from men. it's the kind of fragrance people remember and comment on later. love the rollerball - keep it in my purse w/ no spills. only wish it was a little more long lasting - but when I reapply it's a fresh burst of fragrance, and always a treat - to my nose and others!

Cleopatras scent!
Purchased

Oh my goodness do I love the smell of this! I could keep a bottle under my nose all day long. My boyfriend doesnt like it as much as I do, unfortunately, but I love earthy scents like this. I also have some lebanese and egyptian in my heritage so I am very happy that I fell in love with something similar to what Cleopatra wore! I'm not a perfume person at all, but I wore this sample size every day till it was empty! I havent worn perfume since.
