Honey by Marc Jacobs: Fav Scent of the Month!

Honey by Marc Jacobs is undeniably one of my favourite fragrances to hit our shores this season, and I'm sure it's not hard for anyone to understand the appeal of this gorgeous fragrance, starting from the beautifully whimsical bottle design, down to the wonderfully fresh and sunny fragrance!!
Like I've mentioned several times before, I never used to be a fan of perfumes and fragrances. These days though, it's a different story, thanks to all the opportunities to explore so many different scents! I've come to find what I really like, and Honey by Marc Jacobs really tops the list!

I don't like strong and overpowering scents, so Honey by Marc Jacobs is my perfect daytime scent, and I love how it smells, it's fresh, light, and sweet with a touch of sunny citrus!

I was introduced to Honey by Marc Jacobs at a launch event when we got to hear from a couple of professional perfumers, as well as create our own versions of Honey by Marc Jacobs, using the different base notes to concoct our very own fragrance!

It was super interesting, and all of us were busy bees at work, sniffing away at the different notes, and carefully putting them together! Reminded me of chemistry lab but ten times the fun! :D

After a lot of experimentation as well as help from the experienced perfumers, I was finally satisfied with the fragrance I created for myself! Whoop whoop! Honey by Yina Goh hohoho.

I love my own personalised scent so much I've been spritzing it on daily! :P

Here are the notes of Honey by Marc Jacobs:

Top: Pear, Fruit Punch, Juicy Mandarin
Heart: Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Honeysuckle
Base: Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods

I can literally smell honey when I use Honey by Marc Jacobs and I LOVE the intoxicating and sweet, rich scent! It's also balanced out by light fruity notes, so it's not heavy at all. I'm bad at descriptive vocabulary so you really need to take a whiff of this scent for yourself! ;)

Unfortunately though, I find that the lasting power of Honey by Marc Jacobs is at best 3-4 hours, because all the notes are so light that they dissipate quite fast! Thinking of decanting this into a smaller bottle or vial to bring around because the bottle looks so delicate and pretty I wouldnt want to accidentally break it. However, Tricia says that she's been carrying the entire bottle around and it's very sturdy!

I am really in love with the whimsical bottle design! Always thought that polkadots and stripes would look terrible together but the bottle looks lovely! Elegantly adorable.

With the crazy girls during the launch event! Thanks for having us, Selene!
