Decadence, a Marc Jacobs Review

I wanted to write a quick post to let you know how AMAZING the new fragrance by Marc Jacobs is! It's called Decadence and I've been obsessed with it since Feel Unique started shipping out testers with their general stock in July.

I have been looking for a new fragrance for ages. I usually use Giorgia Armani Code for Women, but it's pretty heavy and is more of a special occasion scent. I've fallen out of love with a few of the perfumes I used to use on a regular basis (DKNY Apple, Chanel Chance, Ralph Lauren Romance) and I was looking for something new (luckily my husband noticed the 900 hints I dropped over the course of two weeks...).

Firstly, Decadence smells really luxurious. It's more floral & woody than fruity, and it's definitely not sharp or citrussy. It's made with Italian plum, iris flower and saffron with jasmine sambac (Jasmine flowers mainly found in India). It smells incredible; it's not overpowering or heavy. The bottle itself is wonderfully garish (think faux snakeskin with a big gold chain and black tassel) and even the box it ships in is made from velour fabric. My collection shipped with a black velvety clutch bag as a free gift, and the quality of the purse is impeccable. It's too small for me to use as a makeup bag, but I'm actually planning to use it as a travel bag for hair accessories that you can chuck in your suitcase. There isn't anything budget about this fragrance, it's indulgent and addictive!

You can pick up a 50ml bottle from John Lewis for £59. Go go go!
