Review - Marc Jacobs Honey Eau De Parfum

Today I have a review for the new Marc Jacobs perfume 'Honey'. I picked this up in America last week as I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it. Marc Jacobs has a number of popular fragrances now and I think this one will be no different when it hits the shops in Australia.

I purchased the 30ml bottle, however the larger versions have a slightly different bottle, with an extra butterfly on the label.

Description from Marc Jacobs:
Honey by Marc Jacobs is a sunny delicious floral - energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth.
The fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear brightened with a splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance is orange blossom, a note of sparkling femininity that mingles with nectars of honeysuckle and peach. Honey, vanilla and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.
Top Note – Pear, Juicy Mandarin
Mid Note – Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Apricot, Honeysuckle
Base Note – Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods

The bottle is very similar to 'Dot' and I think that is what made me want to try it. The yellow is so Summery and cute. I love how fruity yet light this fragrance is and it makes me wish it was Spring already! If you enjoy Vanilla in your perfumes but are after something with a bit of a twist you should definitely try 'Honey'. The Orange Blossom is gorgeous in this and makes it something different from the rest of the floral fragrances on the market. Two of my favourite fragrances are Vera Wang 'Princess' and Versace 'Bright Crystal' and I think 'Honey' is going to join them as my top trio as it is fruitier than 'Bright Crystal' yet more subtle than 'Princess'.

Where to buy:

  1. Oh, I've been lusting after this! The only thing that has maybe dissuaded me from buying it is the thought that it might disappear on me after a bit, which is what Lola and Dot do! Shame, as they are such gorgeous fragrances. The bottle is just too cute. :)
