Joy by Jean Patou is a classic fragrance, first launched in 1930 as "the costliest perfume in the world." The original Joy contained the essence of over 10,000 jasmine flowers and 300 roses in just 1 ounce. Originally designed by perfumer Henri Almeras, this fragrance was voted "Scent of the Century" at the 2000 FiFi Awards - an honor for which it beat out other classics like the eternal Chanel No. 5. Inside the bottle, expect to discover a floral sensation unlike any other, mingled with notes of musk, wood, and powder. 

Joy's bottle, now iconic, was designed by Art Déco architect and bottle designer, Louis Süe, and modelled after the principle of divine proportion, a mathematical formula used by ancient Greek architects to achieve perfect proportions and symmetry.
