I’m sure we’re all familiar with the very cute Marc Jacob fragrance bottles. We have Daisy, Lola, Dot and the newest addition: Honey! It looks like her sister Dot but with yellow/black/white accents. The bottle sure is super cute and pretty, it has that grown-up factor with its bold/graphic but sophisticated design and it breathes fun!
this is a sample, not the real bottle
Now what about the scent? Is this just another sweet cute scent that you find in a lot of other fragrances? A lot of scents tend to smell very generic and I sometimes get very disappointed when I catch a whiff of the newest releases. Not with this one though. With a name like Honey you do expect a sweeter/softer factor but it is not as predictable as you might think. Honey opens with very soft notes of honey and soft vanilla with a dash of orange blossom. As it settles down you’ll get the stronger notes of fruit punch and pear. A bit later you’ll get the mandarins kicking in taking this whole fragrance to a slightly sharper level (in a good way!). Throughout the whole wear time you can clearly smell the soothing honey scent along with the pear. It adds softness and warmth in a very comforting way. The woody notes keep the whole scent grounded so it has this sophisticated/grown-up feel to it.
Although the image of this scent might appeal to a more younger crowd, do not mistake this another scent for just only for the younger public. It has more to it than just a warm fruity scent, it develops from warm and fruity to green and fresh to something very comforting. When I smell this scent it takes me back to a safe place somehow. I just close my eyes and imagine golden fields of tall grass, fruit gardens and late summer nights. It is an interesting choice to release this for fall because this can be perfect for summer as well. Never overpowering but always there, in a very soothing way. Great for anyone that is looking for something different to wear this fall!
