Marc Jacobs Honey

I'm sure a few of you will have seen the latest Marc Jacobs addition advertised here there and everywhere. Many bloggers have had their say via sponsored posts but hey I'm always up for an honest fair review so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and try it myself. I'm a massive fan of their fragrances and I'm yet to be disappointed by any of their releases.

So boyfie was recently on his holidays and offered to pick me up a bottle on the way home, obviously this was an offer I couldn't decline. Without any description of the fragrance, the bottles are enough to sell me. Their quirky contemporary designs are beautiful and will sit beautifully on your dressing table. The pearl bumble bees and polka dot bottle is adorable. Now for the important part, so what does it smell like? From name and the bottle design you'd expect it to be a sickly sweet scent, however I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't as I expected at all, instead I was greeted by a fresh, floral and citrus scent. The notes are a balanced mix of pear and mandarin with tones of honeysuckle, orange blossom and fruit nectars. There are also some base notes of vanilla, woods and honey.

The scent is perfect and I was instantly in love with it despite it not being something I'd usually go for. It is defiantly a strong spring/summer scent although it's very versatile and can be worn day and night. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't linger as much as other perfumes so it needs to be topped up regularly which is a pain considering a 100ml bottle sets you back £68. However it's beautiful and no doubt this will be getting used daily for the next few months.
