marc jacobs honey

marc jacobs honey review photo
marc jacobs honey: £68

So blanket blog coverage does work... I kid,  I had actually had my eye on Marc Jacobs Honey ever since I saw rumblings about it on a beauty website months ago. But in more recent weeks it received blanket blog coverage in the form of a ton of sponsored posts. For the record this isnt one, ButI was eagerly awaiting it's release so I could give it a whirl. Of course the amazing packaging really drew me in at first and the promise of honey notes excited me. Although once I smelt it I really didn't get any honey notes, which is slightly disappointed me at first because I was expecting something a little bit like the namesake. It's warm and vanilla-ry, with notes of honeysuckle, orange and slightly peachy. It's fresh and breezy and quite uplifting, it's not too sweet or floral either. It reminds me a little of Marc Jacobs Dot but much fresher and youthful. I do like it, obviously as I wouldn't have bought the 100ml. It just wasn't as I expected! I've tried almost all the Marc Jacobs perfumes and while I don't like this as much as Lola this is a lovely perfume and definitely worth a spritz or two!

  15. I love vanilla scents! It's a shame the honey scent doesn't come through as much, still sounds lovely though! Might have to try a little spritz or two when I'm in Boots this week :) x

  30. I smelled this the other day and I think I actually kind of like it. I'm not much of a perfume person but this was nice. It's definitely not for me because it doesn't suit me but I think it would be nice others.

    I agree with you in that other Marc Jacobs scents are a bit nicer, nevertheless it's still lovely.

  39. I agree with you on this, I will probably end up buying this as the bottle is gorgeous and I do really really like it but its definitely not as I thought it'd be either. I expected it to be warmer and silkier, instead it's just very sweet and fresh. I dunno, the name honey seems a little unsuited to the scent but it's still really nice. Dot is still my favourite tho :-)

    The perfume I've got my eye on to buy next, though, is Chance by Chanel!
