I'm on the look for a new perfume, so I thought I would share my search with my readers. I wrote to the wonderful folks at COTY and expressed an interest in Marc Jacobs Honey. Not only did they send me a sample of Honey, they sent me 3 other scents too!
To help you decide if your tastes might be similar to mine or in case you want to recommend a fragrance to me, here's a bit about my fragrance preferences. I like gourmand fragrances, but I also want them to have a bit of sophistication to them, to be classy and refined. My favorite notes are almond, vanilla, amber, musk, and sweet fruits (raspberry, strawberry, coconut). I dislike citrus and clean scents and dislike floral in general, at least overpowering floral. My favorite perfume is Dior Hypnotic Poison.
I thought I might like Honey because a honey note falls in line with my loves, but I'm really surprised how much I really do love it! It does start out with floral notes, but it's not overpowering. It's a soft floral. And then you get this hit of honey. It's amazing! And it makes me want to keep smelling it. The scent is not extremely strong, which is a GOOD thing in my opinion. But it does fade relatively fast. Still, I really like this fragrance, and it comes in an adorable bottle with little bees. It's definitely going on my Christmas list.
Available from Nordstroms for $72 for 1.7 oz.
