Folle de Joie eau de parfum

There are two spots that feature prominently in our wanderlust-fueled daydreams: SoCal beaches and Parisian sidewalk cafés. Luckily, we can live vicariously through this refreshing fragrance. Folle de Joie, which translates to “crazy with joy,” evokes both the relaxed and playful vibe of California and the seductiveness and refinement of the City of Light. The perfume opens with a burst of freshness from a blend of citrus and a light woodsy floral, giving way to hints of cognac. Its middle notes——jasmine and Damascenia rose——give the scent a carefree, summery vibe. Warm base notes of spicy woods and rich leather add a seductive finish.

Just Not For Me

I think it's the overbearing floral element of this perfume that deters me. I just did not like the scent. In fact I hopped in the shower to get it off me and threw the sample into the trash. I'm typically not super picky about fragrance and have enjoyed most every other sample I've received. But this one... Yuck.

Not for me

This smells like a mix of old lady and cheap bath and body works products to me! Definitely not for me!

That said the sample size was generous and the perfume is clearly quality...I haven't been able to get rid of the smell all day and it barley made contact with my skin!

I am super picky about scents since being pregnant though so I seem to be in the minority. It's super strong to me.

Smells awful

This perfume smells terrible. It may be suited to an old lady, and even in that case, I would find it too strong.

Instant Headache

This fragrance is fruity and clean at the same. I can see how it would be a nice Summer Scent. I personally don't like it because I got an instant headache the moment I put it on my wrists. I might just be super sensitive.

Smells bad

This perfume is very strong. I don't think it smells summery at all. I could not handle wearing this. Simply put, it justs smells bad.

I may not be the best perfume reviewer b/c I have a sensitive nose, but its VERY strong

This scent was way too strong for my taste. I am not a big perfume person at all, so I may not be objective but it was too strong- if anyone was wearing it it'd bother me.

Fragrance/smell

I did not like the smell of this product. It was to strong of a smell for me. That is just my personal opinion.

Too much
Sampled

I love the description of this perfume, but it was just way too strong and overpowering for me. I like light, fresh, floral scents.

way too floral, doesn't last very long
Sampled

I usually like floral scents, but not this one. It's a cacophony of floral notes with some citrus. It goes on strong, but wears off very quickly. That's probably a good thing.
