And so the Marc Jacobs fragrance family grows by one, Marc Jacobs presents Decadence, it first mature fragrance of this year. The luxurious packaging made me feel initially intrigued, thinking yes, yes, yes I will just adore this scent…….
The olive green hue is one of my favourite shades, the chic bottle symbolic, a “personal talisman” of the designer, reminiscent of a handbag complete with the gold chain and black python cap and tassel made it feel very enticing indeed. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the scent, feeling that this fragrance would have more exoticism to offer. Please don’t misunderstand me by saying this perfume is luxurious and I must say lasted all day but it lacked a certain something….
The base notes are warm Amber, Vetiver and Papyrus wood, the top notes include Italian plum saffron and Iris, Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine and Orris Root at its centre. Initially the fragrance is slightly sharp then within a couple of minutes develops in a solidly spicy scent. The base notes of warm Amber and plum overpower all the other ingredients. If you are a fan of a warm heavy spicy Amber fragrance with a blast of pepper then this is for you. The strong slightly synthetic scent, will last all night long. A wonderful Christmas gift with its exquisite packaging and longevity, but do test out likability with the receiver before purchase.
Available in 30ml, 50ml & 100ml from selected stores nationwide.
