I have been a fan of Mark Jacobs fragrances for year, the first one I ever used was what my mother use to wear, I believe it was called rain, and that was just what it smelt like, pure and fresh. Then I moved on to Lola and Daisy, and it didn't hurt the packaging on the last two was pretty amazing too, which brings me to the latest addition: Honey.
Honey is described as a fruity and floral fragrance with key notes of pear, orange blossom and honey and has that distinctive Mark Jacobs look. When I first tested this, I was surprised how fresh it smelt, and how little it actually had that sweet honey scent, which i'm not a fan of in the warmer months. Honey smells very light and fresh and I would say the most noticeable note in it to me is pear, which I adore as it's so light and summery!
Once it settles on the skin it's very subtle and feminine, and ever-so-slightly more grown-up than the likes of Lola and Daisy, and I find it lasts longer on the skin too. In terms of the packaging, the box is a super cute bright yellow polka dot design that looks fun and young, and the bottle it's self is a classic shape, that has that added fabulous MJ cuteness to it, in the form of the little stripy flowers and gold hardware.
Mark Jacobs Honey eau de parfum is available here at a very reasonable price of £43.99 per 100ml, so it's time to treat yourself to a new summer fragrance I think!
