African Queen Jousset: Unusual and versatile at the same time

Apr 14, 2024

In the world of fragrances, there are perfumes that hold just a scent but an entire story, a game that unfolds gradually with each inhale. The gusty wind, raindrops on flowers, warm citruses from distant lands, spicy notes of exotic spices… And that's what African Queen Jousset is all about! It so happened that I completely forgot about the bottle of African Queen Jousset my sister gave me a couple of years ago. They belong to the category of sweet, warm, and slightly crazy scents, and I'll explain why "crazy" below.

The Snow-White Bottle: Elegance in the style of Jousset African Queen

The bottle has a simple shape, but oh, it's so white! It's like freshly fallen snow! The sprayer is of a comfortable shape, a golden hue. The color matches the label, which also features yellow elements and a beautiful inscription of the perfume's name "African Queen Jousset."

An Intriguing Play of Notes: the Enigmatic African Queen Jousset

When I first tried Jousset African Queen, I was captivated by its enchanting blend of scents. You initially sense almond and lemon notes, then suddenly dark chocolate emerges - such a unique and captivating aroma! Bulgarian rose and jasmine give this scent a romantic touch, while base notes of tonka bean and patchouli offer a multidimensional experience when combined with other notes. I'd say it's a great fit for both women and men, but it suits young girls the best. It's playful and childlike, immersing you in a world of fantasy and adventure! Moreover, it's suitable for all seasons. I can't claim that African Queen Jousset is only for scorching African summers.

So, how does African Queen Jousset actually smell?

African Queen fragrance review

I was amazed by the complex, unique scent of Jousset African Queen. It seemed like this perfume could evoke either love or hate - but that's precisely what makes it so captivating. The lemon notes initially reminded me of dishwashing liquid, but after drying down, a lovely lemon cake scent emerged. I then detected the sweet aroma of rose tonka, transitioning into the scent of sugared raspberries. Over time, it started reminding me of loose makeup powder - yes, that's the kind of variety it offers. However, the familiar rose lingers throughout the fragrance, making African Queen Jousset more understandable and appealing.

It's hard to pinpoint similar scents, but I would say that African Queen Jousset reminds me of Amorous Intense by Navitus Parfums.
