JOYA Âmes Sœurs Parfum - A Scent of Soulmates

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.

Modern Musk
Sampled

If you love musky, warm tones, then you would love this perfume. It's very woody and deep, but not too strong. It makes me think of the stone Amber, and deep autumnal colors. The smell gets a bit sweeter after you've been wearing it for about 5 minutes, too. It's a very beautiful, layered, soft scent, just not a scent I would personally wear, as I'm into lighter, sweeter tones.

Not diggin' the woods!

I will say that I, personally, did not like this perfume scent. It can work well for others, but was too "woodsy" to me. It reminds me of my old elementary school's class "gerbil's cage", so to speak. (very strong cedar accents) Sorry to say, this was my least favorite scent from Birchbox so far.

Eau de Hamsters
Sampled

I tried it out on myself and three female colleagues, and we all agree that it smells like hamsters. Something about the mid-notes has a definite hamster woodchip aroma, and on me there's an additional top note of mint. Altogether, I smell like a cab driver who owns a lot of hamsters. Not my favorite scent.

It was a little too musky/old lady smelling for my tastes. I like the container though.

not my cup of tea

I didn't enjoy the scent. It did go on easily with the rolly-ball, but I don't think the scent is for me.

not for me

When I read the notes in this perfume, I thought it sounded right up my alley. Alas, it was not for me. I got some on my hands and it bothered me so I had to wash my hands to get rid of the smell.

for jasmine lovers
Sampled

I dabbed a little of this scent on my wrists before a wedding and then couldn't scrub it off fast enough. Now that I realize there's jasmine in it, I understand why. I've never been a jasmine fan. Combine it with frankincense and myrrh and you have a powerful musk. If musky perfumes are your thing (and musks have a large fan base), snap this up.

Not Happy smell :(

When I got this product it had leaked all over my other products. Luckily I was still able to use my other samples.

No Joy for Joya

Joya Ames Soeures Parfum was just my thing. I tried a vial sample that I received in my birchbox. Just not for me...
