Marc Jacobs Honey


The latest addition to Marc Jacobs' adorable line-up of fragrances has arrived, in the form of 'Honey'. This sunny, delicious floral scent is quite similar in both scent and design to last years' 'Dot', with a bright yellow, polka dot bottle inspired by honey bees. The bottle is happy and bright, while the fragrance is floral, yet young, fun and energetic.

While the perfume does have a hint of honey in it's base notes, it isn't as strong as I was expecting, and certainly not overpowering (sometimes I find honey can be a little sickly!) On first spray, the top notes of pear and mandarin orange come across very strongly: a sweet, fruity hit that dies down very quickly and blends into a soft, feminine floral dominated by honeysuckle and orange blossom. The subtle base notes of honey and vanilla sweeten it up a little, keeping it young and fresh...


If you were a fan of the original Daisy, or Dot, I think this perfume will be right up your street. It actually makes a lovely fragrance for summertime too, with it's subtle citrus notes.

The staying power of this EDP is also fantastic. It lasts about 4-6 hours on me without the need for a top up. The fragrance is available now in both 50ml and 100ml sizes, priced at £50 and £68 respectively.

To celebrate the launch of Honey, Marc Jacobs are hosting an exclusive competition on Instagram asking you to share your very own 'honeyspots' - Your favourite places to hang out, be it in your own back garden, your secret shopping spot, or your favourite coffee shop in your favourite city...

If you want to be in with a chance of winning one of 32 prizes, including Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags, jewellery and (of course!) your own bottle of Honey, all you have to do is:

1. Take a picture of your very own 'honeyspot'
2. Post the picture on Instagram using #MJHONEYSPOTS, and write in the description where the photo was taken.
3. You'll automatically be entered to win!

I'll be posting a few of my very own honeyspots this weekend, so make sure you're following me on Instagram in the mean time!

  29. Marc Jacobs really makes fantastic scents. I tried almost every single scent that he had out last year, and I can't wait to try this one. I like the idea of honeysuckle - the flower is so incredibly wonderful to smell. Great post!

  32. I saw an advertisement for this in a magazine last week and I thought how cute it looked! I can't wait to give this a sniff and while I don't own any Marc Jacobs perfumes yet, I love all of them. They smell so fresh and floral, perfect for summer I find and nice for a pick me up in winter when the weather is dull.

    Think I'll be giving the competition a go too!

  33. fleur, I was wondering where I could make a suggestion, but since I haven't found anywhere, I'll make it here. I've being watching your videos and noticed that you've been with mike for a long time and you may gift each other quite a lot. perhaps you could make a post or a video showing things you gave him and suggestions for gifts because you seem to be very good at gifting people and has very nice taste in things xx

  52. Hi Fleur!

    What a cute little bottle! The bees are so adorable.

    Do you like this scent Fleur? You didn't seem to express your personal opinion.

    I will definitely be checking this out next time I'm shopping, if not for the scent then the bottle!

    What is your favourite Marc Jacobs scent, Fleur?
