Description
Composition No. 1 is a dreamy and decadent citrus scent with a deep, velvety texture. Top notes of Italian mandarin, Brazilian orange and quince slowly drizzle down to a sumptuous heart of tuberose, heliotrope, jasmine, and Damask roses. A resplendently creamy sandalwood note in the base cradles the scent in its narcotically plush sweetness.

NOT FLORIDA FRIENDLY!
This is an oil. It has a nice smell but it's a bit too girly. If you're ona warm moist weather...not skin friendly.

It's oily because its an OIL!
Like many, I didnt really pick up on any citrus, however it is light and clean. Because it's an oil, it is a lighter initial scent, but it lasts throughout the day (and you can give a quick spritz to your hair without it being drying.)

Soap
It smells like soap or laundry detergent to me. No citrus in my opinion. I would not purchase the full size. But what I don't like, you might. It is a clean scent. Oily.

Great!
This oil is awesome, and lasts pretty much all day. I haven't gotten bored with this scent, it constantly evolves and I discover an new note and layer. However, I don't think its suited for a hot spring/summer day.

Powdery
I wanted the delicious citrus notes from the description but the powdery veil of heliotrope is too thick to penetrate. Powdery scents are not my thing, but if it`s yours, this could be lovely. Scrubbed it.

Lovely + Natural, But Scent Doesn't Last Long
I've purchased Joya oil diffusers before (on another site) and loved their scents for my home, so I was happy to try their perfume oil when it came up as a suggestion. The scent is perfect for me: citrus-y, floral-y, and most important, natural. Something I can wear every day to work, something that does not give me a headache. My only complaint is that the scent does not last long at all.

Have you ever kill an ant crawling on you, i have, and this scent smell like perfume oil and ants. This is not a good smell maybe they should go back to the drawing board on this one. 14 dollars down the drain.

Beautiful scent just like me!
I?m was supper impressed about this fragrance. When I saw the reviews I was disappointed but what can I say I wanted to try it just because it?s named after me. I wanted this fragrance just to say that I have an oil (perfume) named Joya. After I received it, it couldn?t be more satisfying. It smells wonderful, pure and not overbearing. I will order this fragrance just to wear as my everyday scent. Sorry Beyoncé, heat have to slide to the side.

Nice but reminds me of a bathroom
Objectively, this is a lovely scent. However, it reminds me of air freshener used in public restrooms. Granted, it's the kind of nice, pleasant air freshener you'd find in a fancy restroom. But I still felt like I smelled like a restroom all day.

My least favorite
I was looking forward to it based on reviews and packaging. However, to me, this scent smells just like floor cleaner. Thankfully the scent doesn't last very long. I've only used it twice since receiving my sample. Another thing that I didn't enjoy was the perfume is really oily. The advertisement said something about silky but it's way too oily for me. I normally like to spray at least one spritz in my hair on date night, but with this one - there's no way I'd even attempt it, let alone wear it for date night.

Soft & subtle
Out of bottle, it has a floral, watery musk essence to it. Once sprayed, I pick up a very slight hint of mint. It dries down so delicate and pretty. I love the scent but not a fan of how it doesn't last. Foxglove is my favorite of the two currently available from Joya.

Really wanted to like this - BUT,
This reminds me of Musk Oil by Jovan. Very generic, with a slight dry chemical 'clean' scent. I get none of the quince or white florals, just straight up artificial powdery musk. At first spray was afraid it might be a 'scrubber' as there was a screechy note of rubber tire, thankfully that went away after a few minutes. This only lasts on my skin 2 hours at most. Not for me.

First of all, this is a perfumed Oil, not a liquid perfume. As far as the scent goes, it?s pretty, light, and just a hint of clean floral. I like the scent just fine. I give it three stars only because of the longevity of it. To make my perfumes last I spray them on my clothes and in my hair. You cannot do that with Joya?s fragrances because they are oils, and they are over almost the moment you spray them onto your body. I would never buy a bottle of it. Totally not worth it to me.

Joya Composition No.1 is my third scent. I cannot say that I like this one at all. In the bottle, there really isn?t a scent to it. You have to spray it to smell it. This scent, to me, smells like an air freshener. Very much like a ?chemical clean? smell if you will. Luckily, I had a heavier scent to cover up the two I sprayed on me of this one and they mixed fairly well. I don?t get any citrus at all in this one but that could just be me. I will not be using the rest of this and am sad to have to wait for the next one to come.

I was SUPER excited about trying an oil but this one just didn't do it for me (though I really tried to love it). It is lightweight, and absorbs quickly. I can definitely smell the florals in it but to me it smells a little too old school (like a musk or incense from the 70s or 80s). It also doesn't last as long as I'd like or expect.

I enjoyed this scent, but I felt that I was wanting more of the Jasmine to come through. Nonetheless, it has a unique softness about it that I loved. I understand where some reviews thought it might have a 'citronella' note to it, but after the initial spritz, it faded into a silkier scent. I like the fact that fragrance is an oil, so you don't have to use too much. I received many compliments at work. Recommend if you want to try something new.

I was pretty disappointed with this one. I thought it smelled like soap and the way stored furs smell when they hang too long with those cedar chip/mothball things. That said, I got lots of compliments on it, and a friend loved it so much I quite happily passed it on to her. So, it may just be my taste. It reminded me a lot of perfume oils I've run across in Middle Eastern shops, so if that's your jam, I'd say give it a go.

my bottle was leaking really bad when I recieved it,but I think that must be because this fragrance is is really oily, which helps it last longer but i wasn't expecting it. When I first spray it on it has a weird chemical scent to it but once it dries down and warms up a bit it's warm, sweet, and woody. Not too masculine for me to get away with, but unique enough to get some attention. Not overpowering either, need to be nose to skin to really smell it which is fine by me ;)

This smelled like I sprayed cheap air freshener on instead of perfume. It was sickening, it actually was that bad. My daughter asked me why I sprayed on so much bug spray, when I told her it was perfume and I only used one spritz she said "It smells disgusting, I would wash that off now!" I asked my co-workers at the hospital where I worked for their opinions and their replies were "Bug spray", Air Freshener for the toilet", etc, you get my drift. This has been my first fragrance that I really disliked from Scentbird, not every fragrance works on everybody.
