The latest addition to Marc Jacobs' adorable line-up of fragrances has arrived, in the form of 'Honey'. This sunny, delicious floral scent is quite similar in both scent and design to last years' 'Dot', with a bright yellow, polka dot bottle inspired by honey bees. The bottle is happy and bright, while the fragrance is floral, yet young, fun and energetic.
While the perfume does have a hint of honey in it's base notes, it isn't as strong as I was expecting, and certainly not overpowering (sometimes I find honey can be a little sickly!) On first spray, the top notes of pear and mandarin orange come across very strongly: a sweet, fruity hit that dies down very quickly and blends into a soft, feminine floral dominated by honeysuckle and orange blossom. The subtle base notes of honey and vanilla sweeten it up a little, keeping it young and fresh...
If you were a fan of the original Daisy, or Dot, I think this perfume will be right up your street. It actually makes a lovely fragrance for summertime too, with it's subtle citrus notes.
The staying power of this EDP is also fantastic. It lasts about 4-6 hours on me without the need for a top up. The fragrance is available now in both 50ml and 100ml sizes, priced at £50 and £68 respectively.
