The house of Jean Patou has recently launched the new fragrance for women Joy Forever and presented the well-known collection in new bottles repeating the form of Ma Collection. Joy Forever was created by perfumer of the house, Thomas Fontaine, who started his work at Jean Patou with various reformulations of the fragrance Sublime, 1000, Joy, Jean Patou pour homme, Eau de Patou and Chaldée.

In 1924 the legendary designer, JEAN PATOU was widely perceived as the world’s most innovate and successful fashion designer. When he launched his first fragrances in that same year his rationale was brilliantly simple. Patou adored women ... all women and so as an homage to brunettes, blondes and redheads all over the world his first foray into fragrance matched scents to hair color and appealed to everyone. Ever since then, the House of JEAN PATOU has shaped the world of fine perfume with iconic scents such as JOY, SUBLIME and 1000 that have immortalized its reputation as a symbol of quality and prestige.

That reputation continues today with the new collection Jean Patou Collection Heritage with three fragrances Chaldée, Eau de Patou and Patou Pour Homme, reformulated by house perfumer Thomas Fontaine to showcase the rebirth of the House and to satisfy the continuing demand by perfume aficionados around the world.

Chaldée

Back in 1927 when Perfume Chaldée was first introduced, it became a sensation. At that time women wore short skirts and showed their bodies and the emancipation of women was in its beginnings. Chaldée was the first to have introduced sun-tan oil on the beaches, which becomes available to the modern elite. Huile de Chaldée became so popular then ... The fragrance is oriental, floral, spicy and powdery, with accentuated oppoponax notes, amber, flowers and spices. Today's Chaldée evokes the opulence of La Belle Epoque, at the time of freedom and changes.


Eau de Patou

Eau de Patou is luminous and vibrant.  It conveys a sense of relaxation and rest. It was originally created in 1976 as a fragrance that will be a favorite both to men and women. Its composition gives a sense of freedom present throughout the day. Bright and luminous fruit notes shine with drops of bergamot, Sicilian citrus, Guinea orange and sweet lime mixed with peppery lavender and orange blossom. This fragrance is delightfully fresh yet sophisticated in the manner of Jean Patou.


Patou Pour Homme

Fragrance for men Patou Pour Homme was introduced in 1980 celebrating men’s elegance. This fragrance is truly masculine—authoritative and layered. Top notes provide us with a blend of bergamot, lemon, galbanum and pepper, which give way to lavender, jasmine, rose, tarragon and violet in the heart. Robustness and crudeness come from base notes of patchouli, olibanum and amber.

JEAN PATOU CHALDÉE is available as 100 ml EDP
JEAN PATOU EAU DE PATOU  is available as 100 ml EDT
JEAN PATOU PATOU POUR HOMME  is available as 100 ml EDT

They are pale shadows of the originals. Nothing at all to scream over. I have all three. Nothing in the leat to get excited over. The Grandeur that was Jean Patou is impossible to copy. Sorry Thomas Fontaine. Nice try.

Ah ah ah... Eau de Paotu By Fontaine?
And... you are waiting for what?
This is not Patou Pour Homme, this is Fontaine Pour Homme, and I am disgusted by how they are treating the brand Patou! Including the ridiculous new Joy Forever! Shame on you!

Great news, Sandra, especially for Chaldee. I can't wait to try it. It would be so nice to see some other legends of Ma Collection like Adieu Sagesse, Coctail or Normandie make a dynamic comeback.
