Marc Jacobs has carved out a successful collection of fun fragrances, known for their quirky bottles as much as their fun scents. Joining Daisy, Lola and Dot, Honey is the latest addition to Jacobs’ stable of perfumes.
At first smell, what hits you are the fresh, fruity tones. A mix of green pear and juicy mandarin immediately grab your senses. Interwoven with those scents are blends of orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle, making the fragrance feminine without being musky. The base of honey and golden vanilla keep the scent sweet but don’t take away from the freshness. Honey is the perfect daytime scent as it’s light without being too floral, and doesn’t have the heaviness of other fruity perfumes.
Staying true to form, Jacobs puts his quirky spin on the Honey bottle. Showing his knack for successfully putting a modern spin on classic designs, Jacobs mixes spots and stripes, bringing out the playful element of the scent. The vivid yellow and black design is also a nod to the honeybee, which coincidentally inspired Sarah Burton’s Spring/Summer 13/14 collection for Alexander McQueen. Who would have thought bees could be the new black!
The scent is long-lasting and bold, without being too in your face. With its crisp, playful notes, Honey is definitely a scent for lovers of fruity fragrances. It will give you an instant lift and keep you smelling fun and flirty all day.
Honey will be available nationally from Myer and David Jones on the 4th of August, and from selected pharmacies from the 25th of August 2013. It will be available as an Eau de parfum in 30ml ($75), 50ml ($120) and 100ml ($160) sizes and in a radiant body lotion ($40).
