    Question Perfume Quest: $300-400 French Perfume

    I recently discovered that i am not the first person in my family to have a strong affinity for fragrance: my grandmother apparently used to wear a French perfume that was between $300-400...unfortunately, i do not know the name of the perfume! I am very interested in smelling it as she passed around 13 years ago and I have very, very few memories of her. I'm basically trying an olfactory experiment, to see if the smell of the perfume can trigger memories I have somewhere in my head.

    I hate to ask such a general question but do any of you know of a French perfume, between $300-400 and was around at least 15 years ago?

    Thank you!

    Joy by Jean Patou is French, old enough, and notoriously expensive, but I don't know the actual price or how likely it is to fit your story. I hope you solve the mystery, however. I like that you are trying to re-connect with a family member who is no longer with you!
