How do you find a new perfume? I usually become interested in new perfumes after reading magazine articles on them, or I saw something about it online. Then I smell it in a store, and decide whether I want to purchase it or not. I am really bad about just browsing for a perfume – I tend to get overwhelmed! If you know of a good online resource which can help me find a new perfume, please let me know!
I suppose I found out about the Marc Jacobs Honey perfume in a magazine somewhere. I like floral perfumes and I like the smell of honey, so this perfume got me interested. But since I couldn’t find this product in Japan, I didn’t want to commit to a full sized bottle. I’m glad I settled on a rollerball, since I have been using this product regularly but it is still over half full!
What it does: (from the Sephora website)
Honey by Marc Jacobs is a sunny, delicious floral—energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth.
This buzzing fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear and a bright splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. Orange blossom resides at the heart of the fragrance and mingles with the nectars of honeysuckle and peach for a note of sparkling femininity. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.
Notes: Pear, Juicy Mandarin, Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Apricot, Honeysuckle, Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods.
Price: The rollerball was $24 for 0.33 fluid ounces. The bottles range from $52-94, depending on the size.
Availability: This fragrance is available at Marc Jacobs stores, Sephora, Ulta, as well as department stores.
Scent: This is not the strongest floral scent that I’ve tried and is quite fruity. After it dries down, I can also smell some herbally, woody scents.
- I like that this scent mixes floral notes with fruity, woody notes
- This is a light fragrance, and I like to use it in the spring and summer
- This scent does not last long on my skin
Would I repurchase? Maybe. I liked the scent, and will use up the rollerball. However, I am not sure that I love it enough to commit to buying a whole bottle!
