Marc Jacobs Decadence




I received this gorgeous fragrance from my boyfriend for our anniversary and I was more than impressed. 
I have wanted to try this for so long, so I was really excited when I finally had the chance. 
I love everything about this perfume from the packaging to the luxurious scent. 
Lets just start off with the packaging...It comes in this gorgeous dark green velvet box, to match the deep colour of the bottle. The bottle itself is in the shape of a handbag which is super cute and the lid comes off to reveal the spray for the perfume. Every little detail has been thought out and even the lid is a gorgeous snake skin pattern with a little gold chain as the strap. 

The fragrance itself is described as: 


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


I think this is so true, it really does smell glamorous and 'decadent'. It also lasts all day on me which is something that I really look for in a perfume. If you like fairly heavy, strong smells I really recommend going and giving this a try.
