Joan Vass L’eau de Améthyste

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.

Awesome everyday scent (Horrid bottle design)
Purchased

I love this scent for so many reasons. First, it's unique. Remember the 90's when we all smelled like one of three scents: CK One, Tommy Girl or Happy? It was so overdone and always gave me the heaves when a guy would say I smelled like his ex or when inevitably I would discover my arch rival too wore my scent. You will never have that problem with this scent. I haven't come across this scent in any retail stores and I've never encountered anyone that wears it. The smell is fresh and sophisticated, appropriate for a professional environment (I'm an attorney) yet also quite sexy. I get compliments on this fragrance all the time. You will have to reapply throughout the day as the scent does tend to fade. My biggest complaint is the packaging. It's absolutely hideous and reminds me of a discount brand from the 90s- the cap is a purple lucite rose (the perfume does not have any rose smell) and the rest of the bottle is pretty boring.

Awesome Product

Bought this for myself on a whim. Completely overwhelmed with how great this fragrance is. I love musk and i was not disappointed with this purchase. Missing a star because the scent did not last as long as I would like.

Nothing like it!

I have never smelled anything so wonderful and get compliments on it every time I wear it! It is not too strong and not too sweet, really it is just perfect!

Love!

For reference, I have worn Christian Dior J'adore forever. I haven't bothered to change because I've never stumbled upon anything I liked more. Well that has changed. I am obsessed with this scent and just about cried when my sample ran out. It's feminine, but not overly sweet. Warm, but not too heavy. It's basically perfect. It's going on my Christmas list!

Not my Favorite
Sampled

This perfume smells kind of like a more feminine mens cologne. There is nothing wrong with the scent, it is a good smell, it is just not for me. It smells vaguely musky, and it is a little strong for my taste. It is an ok scent, just not for me.

I received this in my birchbox a while back. It instantly became my favorite fragrance. I was a little upset when I used the sample up. It's definitely worth the money though. The fragrance is just right for any occasion. I love it.

Winter fragrance
Sampled

It's okay. It's not what I typically wear (I'm usually in summer fragrances like Light Blue or Bvlgari Coral), it's very musky. Not too old ladyish, but is best for winter. I'll try it again around Christmas.

couldn't try it!

I tried to use this product, but the spray piece of the pump was defective and wouldn't work. I'm sure I would have more to say if I could use it!

Signature fragrance

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.
