It is true - this is lighter than, but oh, so similar to, Patou's Joy, that it could be named "Eau de Joy."
The edp I sampled was dark red and quite oily. Lots more use of original oils compared to alcohol content.
Barbara Herman tells us it contains rose, narcissus, hyacinth, tuberose and jasmine. I believe it. The rose is very heavy and there is also the sharpness of muguet, both of which are for me the standout notes of Joy.
It really is a toss up between the two fragrances, they are that much alike. Snob is both lighter and denser at the same time, while Joy is brighter and stronger in concentration.
Le Galion was a small house with not many scents, Snob and Sortilege being its most distinctive successes.
Another Joy, very beautiful, and without the animalic notes that you can find in Joy extract. You can compare it also to Guerlain Ode.
I read somewhere that Snob was Le Galion's answer to Patou's Joy. Out of the bottle, the two smell nearly identical. But on the skin, Snob is much lighter. You can still smell the similarity, but it's much sprightlier and has a salty note to it.
