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.
I have been lusting after this scent since I first received it in a box, probably over two years ago now. I think Birchbox knew it all along, because a couple times a year, I'd get it in my box again, after carefully alloting my use of it over the months.
For me, Joie is the perfect combination of floral and musky. It's very distinct, so I'd definitely recommend trying a sample before you go spending $100 on a full bottle, which I did finally do! This is my go-to perfume, and I always get comments on how amazing it smells. This one really adapts to your personal scent as well - my best friend received it in her own box once, and it smelled totally different on her. Absolutely love it!
Can't stop thinking of this fragrance. Perfume smells amazing. It lingers and I just want to smell more and more.5
I absolutely love this fragrance! It's light, fruity and floral and has a great spring/summery feel to it. However, it has some musky and woodsy tones to it so I will wear it into the Fall as well.5
I adore this perfume - I have gotten so many compliments on how great it smells! I can never remember the name to tell people but I always show them this link! It's a light fruity smell that is the perfect addition to my day.5
I love this scent. I bought the full sized bottle after sampling it in my box. The scent is feminine, light enough to wear to yoga, and sticks around (but not in an overpowering way). I know it is pretty expensive, so it's worth saving your points for!5
Usually I don't gravitate towards floral scents but something about this one is light and not overbearing. Somehow it still lasts all day long despite not being too strong. Love it!5
This is one of my favorite
Samples from birchbox has a long lasting scent not to overwhelming.
this perfume. i was amazed at how beautiful this perfume is. i will be buying the full size. its light, feminine wiithout being sweet, floral, musky, and perfect.perfect.5
I received this in the Birchbox Elegant Essentials fragrance sampler. To be honest I was primarily interested in the sample of Clean and the $30 coupon towards purchase of a full sized product. I hoped I might find another fragrance that I liked but I'm super sensitive to most perfumes so I didn't expect to.
Folle de Joie was the third sample I tried and OMG I LOVE IT!! It has a fresh, slightly spicy scent that reminds me of a feminine version of Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male cologne - one of my favorites that my husband refuses to wear. :(
The only drawback is the price. At $90ish it's definitely a luxury item - even with the $30 coupon from the sampler. It is worth every penny but my wallet isn't being cooperative right now. I think I'll ask my dear husband to pick this up for my birthday or Christmas...if I can wait that long!
I could smell this for the rest of my life! I cannot believe how amazing this scent is. I wish it were not so expensive but it's on my wish list!5
