Folle de Joie5:32:00 PM
A few months ago I started a monthly subscription to Birchbox. After signing up, every month you receive a pretty little care package filled with samples of beauty and lifestyle products. Some of my favorite new products have been Birchbox selections. In my December box I received a sample for the fragrance Folle de Joie. At first I was hesitant: scents are so personal. They evoke different emotions and sensations. I've always wanted a signature smell but was always too afraid to splurge on a luxury brand. What if I didn't like it after a few weeks? What if it made me sneeze? Luckily Birchbox swooped in with the perfect scent for me. Using some Birchbox points I accrued and an additional discount for being a 3 month member, I finally took the plunge and invested in a scent. I couldn't resist this clean floral scent in a simple but beautiful perfume bottle.
The perfume opens with a burst of freshness from an intimate blend of calming citrus and a light woodsy floral, giving away to playful hints of cognac. Its middle notes—jasmine and Damascenia rose—give the fragrance a carefree, summery vibe. Finally, warm base notes of spicy woods and rich leather add a seductive finish. Plus, the vintage-inspired glass bottle adds a chic touch to any vanity.If you are looking for a light floral that smells like summer but works in the winter, I would sample Folle de Joie.
