When a sample of the Marc Jacobs Honey perfume arrived on my doorstep I was thrilled. The mini sample bottle was absolutely adorable but I was so swamped at the time so I put it in the to-try-and-review-later drawer. Recently I gave this drawer a clean out and found this little gem. Wahoo!
When I found this bad boy last weekend I put it on, was pretty underwhelmed by it and forgot I had it on. About half an hour later I got a waft of something absolutely delicious and realised that it was the perfume! Clearly I hadn't given it time to dry when I smelt it. Rookie mistake. I instantly fell in love with Marc Jacobs' Honey Perfume and, after only having worn it twice, I bought 30mL of this perfume in the recent 15% off fragrances at Myer sale.
The Marc Jacobs Honey perfume has top notes of mandarin and pear, mid notes of orange blossom, apricot and honey suckle and peach nectar and base notes of honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods. This sweet perfume is definitely floral but it's not sickly sweet or floral and it doesn't smell like you've rolled in a garden bed. Best of all, I feel like Honey by Marc Jacobs is a 'grown up' perfume that still smells very youthful and fun.
This perfume is $75 for 30mL, $120 for 50mL and $160 for 100mL so it's definitely an investment but, in my opinion, it's so worth it. If you have a chance, head to Myer to have a sniff and see if you can pick up a sample.
Always look your best,
