Shall I say cheers to the first of many, I recently brought myself the Marc Jacobs Decadence fragrance. It was a purchase of like many ..purely on the packaging. I was sold from the first time I saw it sitting on that display at Foschini I had to have it. Released in 2015 it’s fast become a Marc Jacobs classic.

I have recently developed a love for fragrance and I have had so many just based on the that I had to smell good but this one is much closer to me.

It is meant to create a statement for sure from the packaging I could not help adding a handbag to my collection don’t you think?
The Marc Jacobs Decadence is for a confident woman to sure to be a head turner. The design of the bottle was to draw from opulence and glamour. The green python pattern just gives off seduction in every way. Love the woody note it reminds me of Calvin Klein Euphoria.

The down part of this fragrance is that it doesn’t last on my skin for long.

Woody fragrance merry well with fall and winter. As we get closer to much cooler months it will quickly become my everyday fragrance but currently, I love to put it on when am going out in the evening I wouldn’t consider this a summer fragrance but it not bad for a summer night out.

With a rich, woody fragrance with top notes of plum, iris and saffron, a floral heart of rose and jasmine and a rich amber and vetiver base you are sure to get compliments.
The plum note hit you first, the smell of amber and plum give off a fruity smell but with the notes of vetiver and saffron, they bring a much need balance.

Scent Itself: On my skin 5/10
Projection: 8/10
Longevity: 9/10
Overall: 10/10

It was daring from the first spray  I fell in love and the name is decadence. It is not a scent for every woman that’s for sure.
Marc really put his foot at just a shy R90 it was worth every cent got it in the 30ml love it.

Have you tried it?
