I basically called my mom for help. Except when I say mom, I mean an esthetician.
Marc Jacobs is my favorite designer. Sorrynotsorry for being a cliché. The single most expensive piece of clothing I've ever purchased was a Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan--not even something from the high-end line!
His perfumes, however, have yet to speak to me on the same level as his clothing. They've all been pretty great--just not "me."
His latest is Honey, which I was kind of hoping would smell like straight-up honey; but this is coming from the man who has a fragrance called Daisy, a flower that doesn't have a scent.
Honey is one of the notes, as is honeysuckle, but you get much more peach, pear and orange blossom. Once it's actually on your skin, a few of the warmer notes, like vanilla and "smooth woods," come through subtly.
I do like it, but I don't think it'll become my go-to fragrance the way his deeply discounted outlet and Gilt finds have become my go-to clothing.
In fact, the other day, I was crossing the street next to someone who was most definitely wearing Michael Kors--I don't own a single item of clothing or accessory by him--which I wore years ago, and I fell in love with it all over again. Maybe it's time to revisit it.
How about you? Quick Question: What's your favorite designer fragrance? Do you like clothing by the same designer?
