Marc Jacobs Honey

Hello Marc Jacobs Honey*, you cutie pie little fragrance you.  If you were the type of person to pick up a bottle of perfume and coo and it Marc Jacobs Honey would be that fragrance.  How freaking adorable is the bottle?  Lets start with that.



Similar to the bottle that DOT comes in Honey gives us a happy yellow lidded bottle with white dots on the side. There are two butterflies with pearls in the centre (more on butterflies later).  Marc Jacobs really draws outside the box when it comes to perfume bottles and while it is definitely aimed towards the younger audience the bottle is so cute that it also attracts the more mature lady.  That's right when I showed Honey to my mam she said "is that for me".  Mind you that's not really surprising, from the first time my mam laid eyes on Marc Jacobs Daisy she tried to find it a home - while she wasn't too mad on the scent she bought various editions of it as gifts for people.   When Oh Lola was released she loved the scent and it's her signature perfume and takes pride of place on the cabinet downstairs because it's so pretty she wants everybody to see it (although she is still trying to get her hands on Honey... mitts off mama).


Onto the scent

Top Notes: Pear, Juicy Mandarin
Middle Notes: Orange Blossom, Peach, Honeysuckle
Base Notes: Honey, Vanilla, Woods.

So as you can gather is a sweet, feminine, fruity scent.  Its not a strong or overwhelming perfume, in fact if your a fan of strong perfumes Honey is not for you.  I love a delicate fragrance especially during the summer and I love a sweet fragrance but other sweet fragrances can be a little fake and sometimes headache inducing.  Honey is a sweet fragrance but its not sickly sweet.  Because the fragrance is so light I keep thinking that it has worn off but the compliments that I have received when wearing has me assured that its still there and I have received a good few compliments when wearing Honey.  

The other day there was a large butterfly in work and it kept swooping down at the desk which resulted in myself and my colleague running around the desk to get away from it (I don't know if I mentioned to you before that I have an irrational fear of butterfly's - its irrational I cant explain it).  As we dove for cover my colleague asked "what perfume are you wearing? its attracting the butterfly" - so it seems the sweet delicate scent of Honey attracts butterflies.  (Unknown to us we were visible and recorded on the CCTV camera running around the desk like the Benny Hill show although in our defence the flipping butterfly was so big they thought we were running from a bird).

I love the bottle (even with butterfly's on the side) and I love the fragrance (butterfly attracting qualities aside).   If your a fan of Marc Jacobs perfumes you need to check this out.  I have been wearing Honey every day - ignoring the risk of attracting butterflies cause I like to walk on the wild side.

Marc Jacobs Honey is available now and 50ml costs €63.50 and 100 ml costs €86.40.  I am loving Honey, the bottle makes me so happy every time I see it, even if I have to hide it from my mam. Pin It
