Reviews of Joy

A very lovely and pretty citrus floral. Very light, simple, easygoing, romantic, noncomplicated and yes, joyful. The name seems fitting, as it does have a pleasant aura of joyful carelessness. I wouldn't buy it, as it doesn't feel "me", but I'd use it up if I had it on days when I want to smell just simply lovely - like I used up my sample. I feel it has some similarities with Chanel Gabrielle, as both are lovely modern citrus florals - but Joy is friendly, smiling and approachable girl next door where Gabrielle is colder and more distant and a bit introspective. I prefer Gabrielle. I'm sure I would really enjoy smelling Joy in the air if a friend or a relative wore it though.

No love lost here. Chance Eau Tendre meets Gabrielle. A bad Chanel.

Fantastic, modern perfume. A little like Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle, but maybe a little softer.

Have you watched Blade Runner 2049? Joi/y is there

I received a sample of Dior Joy during a purchase and considering the nice package and the lovely pink color of the juice, I jumped to it in order to check what Dior had been up to.
Now, in order for you to have a picture of what I’m trying to describe, I must ask: have you watched Blade Runner 2049? If the answer is yes, then you know that Joi/y is depicted there. If the answer was no and you want to save time, let me put my feelings into words: both Joy (the fragrance) and Joi (the pretty girlfriend of the main character) are HOLOGRAMS. In the movie, Joi is a program developed through artificial intelligence and she is “put into life” as a hologram. She is the pretty and passionate girlfriend of Blade Runner “K” and they live a very comfortable and happy life except for that fact that Joi is not real. You can see her, you can interact with her, but once you touch her, you know she is not really there. She is the idea, the representation of something – a human being, in this case. Dior Joy is exactly like Joi: an idea, an interpretation, a chemical vision of something – a real fragrance. I do know that most fragrances nowadays are composed of synthetic ingredients, but some are so well put together that if you close your eyes you can really believe you smell the real thing. But not with Joi/y. Yes, she’s pretty, yes, she’s adorable, but even closing your eyes you know that she is a mere representation of the real thing. You can surely have her by your side and feel comfortable and happy, but I’m still up for the real thing.

Just when you thought Dior couldn't sink any lower than their other recent offerings, they bring out this instantly forgettable, synthetic, throwaway rubbish. Ripping off the Joy name makes it all the more ironic and despicable. I wonder what they're planning next: Dior No5? Dior Shalimar? Dior de Rocaille? I was just about to say Miss Dior, but they've already ripped that off themselves. Utterly shameful

Lemon bubblegum Dial soap.

It smells so derivative, so cheap, so instantly mass market, so desperately sunny and bright, that if I didn't know better I would swear it was a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the sorry state of today's mainstream fragrances—the perfume equivalent of spokesperson JLaw's Bratty Chatty Kathy public persona.

Unfortunately, I believe this stuff is serious about itself. But that doesn't stop me from kind of loving it (ducks).
