The Review: Decadence - Marc Jacobs


So! This perfume I'm going to tell you about, quote me when I say discovery of the century.

Ok, let me not get ahead of myself. Instead, I'll stick with my regular script. 

THE BOTTLE: Ok, let the gushing begin. What?! Do you see the prettiness of this bottle too, or am I just in love all on my own? Like, who thought this bottle into reality? The purse shape? That person deserves an award. It is PERFECTION! Like, so cute. Can I just hang it on my shoulder though. I actually held it by the chain strap (with so much fear and trembling) to see if it would hold up and weirdly it did. I figure it does this by od'ing on magnets to keep the cover stuck to the bottom half.  Ok, let's pretend the handbag idea wasn't already cute on its own, what of the faux python skin top cover??? So lush. Prettiest bottle ever, I'm sorry but I can't stop gushing. I can stop this review here and say make sure you buy this just for the bottle alone. Hands up if you would. 

THE SMELL: Guys, how can I explain the smell of perfection to you? I'm lost for words. Ok, enough drama, but this is honestly my fave fragrance of the year. Considering we're in the 5th month already, I wouldn't say it's too early to come to that conclusion. What are the odds of finding another smell this heavenly? Let me tell you what Marc Jacobs says. 

"Decadence is a sensual, luxurious, woody fragrance, embodying the spirit of irreverent glamour. The fragrance opens with sultry top notes of Italian plum, iris flower, and saffron. The heart opens with luxurious notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, and orris. The indulgent dry down reveals the base notes of vetiver, papyrus woods, and liquid amber".

THE VERDICT: I love this smell, it appeals to me on every note. It's husky, musky and sweet at the same smells like sweet musky wood mixed with fruits and roses, there's no other way to describe its luxurious scent. It's truly decadent. 100% in my books.

If you're in Nigeria, the good people of Essenza sell this for about N22/N27,000? Can't remember exactly, but be ready to spend about that much.
