Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence fragrance review
If there was an award for best perfume bottle EVER, it would probably go to Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence. The handbag design is so quirky and yet manages to look grown up and luxurious at the same time. Ever since my bottle arrived, I’ve been half tempted to wander around with it, swinging it as I go, ha ha.

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.

Are you a fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances? Which one is your favourite?
