Nerd alert: One of our favorite things to do is read the customer reviews in the Birchbox Shop. You all are an opinionated bunch—and we like it! We especially adore when you write about your favorite purchases. From time to time, we’ll be highlighting some of your extra sweet product love letters on the blog.
Inspired by vibrant SoCal beaches and chic Parisian cafés, Joie’s Folle de Joie eau de parfum is an uplifting and memorable perfume. But don’t just take our word for it—here’s a peek at what several adoring customers had to say about this one-of-a-kind fragrance:
"I completely love this scent…the description accurately portrays how I feel when I put this on. I get compliments from many people and I really feel like a young adult when I wear this. I saved up a long time because i HAD to have it. It’s the only perfume i have ever been compelled to buy. Thank you!" —Ssstephanie
Stocking Up On Summer Staples At Joie
We’re totally obsessed with Joie clothing. The SoCal-based Parisian-inspired label epitomizes the phrase effortlessly chic, which is exactly how we want to dress—especially in the summer. We’re thrilled that we’re now carrying the brand’s delightful-smelling perfume and hand cream, and in honor of their debut in our Shop, we threw a small shopping soiree at Joie’s Soho boutique for our local customers. Guests were treated to macarons, champagne, and best of all, a 20 percent off discount. We even hosted an Instagram contest and the very lucky @kt_hilton scored a $500 Joie gift card, plus the luxe fragrance and hand cream! Scroll through to see her winning look and for even more fun photos from the evening.
