Joy remains the world's second best-selling scent (after Chanel No. 5) and Joy is one of the most expensive perfumes out there because it takes around 10,000 jasmine flowers and and 28 dozen roses to create 30ml of the perfume. Joy Forever was launched in 2013 and it is a floral perfume containing key original olfactive ingredients of the original Joy perfume - Rose de May and Jasmine to create a modern twist for today's modern woman. Top notes are bergamot, mandarin orange and galbanum; middle notes are marigold, jasmine, rose, orris, orange blossom, and peach; base notes are cedar, sandalwood, white musk and amber.
They were kind enough to send me a set to check out for myself. It has an elegant timeless gold bottle and the scent almost reminds me of a classic Shalimar. It's a refreshing scent of flowers that's not too overbearing or heavy. I like the body cream which is very subtle but creamy.
The Joy Forever duo contains a 2.5oz Eau de Parfum spray and a 6.8oz Body Cream. The set goes for $190 and it's available at Lord and Taylor. The 2.5oz bottle can be purchased on it's own for $130.You can order the set or just the perfume here: http://www.lordandtaylor.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/lord-and-taylor/joy-forever-gift-set
