Fragrance: Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence
My Marc Jacobs fragrance obsession is a long one. Ever since he released Lola many moons ago, it’s one of the brands I always look to when trying to find a new signature scent. Aside from the Daisy range, which I never really got on with, I think I’ve had virtually every fragrance he’s made – Fan Girl over here!
Divine Decadence is the follow up to last year’s ‘Decadence’ launch, which saw a more grown up feel coming through to his fragrance collection. It’s a sparkling floral, with top notes of champagne, orange blossom and bergamot; heart notes of gardenia, honeysuckle and iris; and a base of saffron, vanilla and liquid amber.
It’s slightly fresher than the original Decadence fragrance, but I still think it leans more towards being an evening scent. It’s quite heady and you only need a couple of spritzes for a really long-lasting effect. Although the top notes are quite light and floral, the dry down is warm and sexy and definitely something to wear on a night out. The bottle is also a dressing table must-have – definitely not one to be kept in a drawer!
It’s a little more pricey than some of the other Marc Jacobs scents, however Fragrance Direct have a small discount on it at the moment, bringing a 30ml EDP down to £42.99 instead of the usual £49. I’m hoping there will also be a gift set of this at Christmas time as they are always such good value for money.
