"Honey, honey..." the cheerful, bouncy Bee Gees ditty gets into your head once you discover the name of the latest Marc Jacobs perfume, Honey. The new women's scent is a follow-up to last year's Dot. It is housed in a smilarly fun bottle but turned golden yellow instead of red, and with stripes this time! And like the song, it promises to be filled with energy and lighthearted spirit,
"A SUNNY ENTICING FLORAL – ENERGETIC AND ALLURING, WITH A SPARKLING, GOLDEN TOUCH. THE PERFECT MIX OF BRIGHTNESS AND WARMTH."...
The eau de parfum was composed, just like for the original, by perfumer Annie Buzantian of Firmenich in collaboration with fashion designer Marc Jacobs and fragrance consultant Ann Gottlieb. Jacobs as a designer explained that his starting point for the fragrance was the creative bottle concept.
The perfume itself opens on top notes of green pear, fruity punch and juicy mandarin. In the heart, we meet once again with the floral note orange blossom which is part of the original composition this time mixing with honeysuckle and peach nectar. In the base, we have honey, "golden vanilla" and "smooth woods".
Honey is - believe it or not - not just a gourmand note in perfumery but one which is considered to be animalic. Therefore, it could smell sweet but also a bit more sensual than that.
Available in 30 ml, 50 ml and 100 ml. Honey launches this summer from July 2013.
We just hope it won't attract any real bees, as it can happen with some fragrances.
