If you like a heady, full-on fragrance for the cooler months then you might like to check out Marc Jacobs Decadence - a stop-in-your-tracks head turner that you’ll either love or loathe. A departure from Mr Jacobs’ usual style (to which I’m rather partial) this is truly decadent every step of the way.
- Top: Italian Plum, Iris, Saffron
- Heart: Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Orris
- Base: Liquid Amber, Vetiver, Papyrus Woods
Opulent, rich and sensual, this woody amber scent smells to me like it should be paired with a velvet ball gown on winter evenings - fire blazing, chandelier, glass of mulled wine… you get the picture.
I expect that many will be unable to resist purely for the bottle alone, modelled on a Marc Jacobs handbag…
…not to mention the gorgeous green velvet box.
Sophisticated, smokey and the kind of perfume I once practically bathed in, I’ve been drawn to softer and brighter scents lately. Definitely one to try before you buy - and if you like intense fragrances, this would be an amazing signature scent.
Marc Jacobs Decadence is available in 30, 50 & 100ml at fragrancedirect.co.uk (mine is 30ml)
