The amount of people who commented on the perfume I was wearing last year, well if I had a penny and all that.
It was Marc Jacobs Decadence, and as soon as I wiffed it I fell in love.
This year I got its sister Marc Jacobs Decadence Divine for Christmas.
So first up the packaging is unique, and you will either love it or hate it, (I personally love it) and I feel the scent is similar.
It is floral and fresh, but with a very distinct and strong scent – here is the breakdown:
Top notes: Champagne, Orange Blossom, Bergamot
Heart notes: Gardenia, Hydrangea Accord, Honeysuckle, Iris
Base notes: Saffron, Vanilla, Liquid Amber.
In all honesty, I don’t know what half of the above smell like, but I personally can detect strong citrus, (Orange Blossom & Bergamot) and the mouth watering crisp scent of champagne, all laced with a hint of vanilla.
It is similar to the original Decadence fragrance, but I feel this is a lot lighter overall, and more day-time appropriate.
I love both, and would advise having a spritz when wandering around the perfume counters.
I said it above, but I have never in my life had so many people ask what perfume I was wearing, and I think that fact perfectly sums up this review. Now go, get spritzing.
