Marc Jacobs Honey Eau de Parfum Review
Marc Jacobs introduces his new Honey Eau de Parfum for Fall 2013. If you loved the whimsical ladybug good nature of Marc Jacobs Dot, you’ll absolutely adore Honey which features a bottle that looks like a little bee!
Buzz buzz bitches!
But don’t be fooled where as Dot features sweeter more delicate floral notes, Honey is actually more pop, fun, and flirtatiousness!
Marc Jacobs puts a modern twist on his bottle of Honey Eau de Parfum with a striking mix of pearls, dots, and stripes down in a yellow, black, and white design that resembles that of a playful bee buzzing happily away at a flower (or perhaps it’ll remind you of a butterfly!). The polished glass bubble bottle is a cheerful shade of yellow with shimmering pearl accents and a gold face plate featuring its namesake.
Marc Jacob Honey Eau de Parfum takes some of the gorgeous floral notes from his popular Dot fragrance and channels them into this new fragrance with the golden touch of honey!
Honey is a sassy, sunny floral scent with fruity top notes such as pear, mandarin, and fruit punch. Her fruity elements are combined with touches of softer florals like orange blossom and honeysuckle with a graceful dry down of honey, vanilla, and a smooth woodsy base. I think the floral notes dominate here as first mist you will get some sweeter fruity notes but upon dry down it’s all about honeysuckle, a smoother touch of soft honey, and vanilla. It has a little twang in the background which stems from the orange blossom and honeysuckle combination.
There isn’t complete warmth here but Honey is warmer and less “fun” than Dot was. Dot has sweeter notes and elements that makes it more playful where as Honey has a more serious fragrance note. Don’t let that sway you though she’s still rather playful and idea for daily use.
I wouldn’t say the honey elements here dominate the fragrance so if you’re looking for a truer, golden honey fragrance this won’t be your girl. However, if you like faint traces of honey in your fragrance combined with delicate floral you’ll enjoy Honey.
She’s available for purchase now at Sephora and Sephora.com and launches later this fall at your favorite stores including Nordstrom, Macys, etc…with a range of fragrance, body lotion, and shower gel!
