Marc Jacobs Decadence

As many of you know I am a perfume hoarder due to the packaging of bottles and when this one runs out I will definitely be hoarding it - who doesn't want a perfume that is fashioned after one of Marc Jacobs signature handbags? 


'Qualitative, opulent, surprising. A sensual, luxurious, woody fragrance, Decadence by Marc Jacobs embodies the spirit of irreverent glamour. Decadence is the ultimate statement maker... a decadently feminine bottle inspired by an iconic handbag shape.'


The packaging is so extravagant and OTT and screams cat walk ready and really replicates  and encapsulates the edginess of the fragrance. As I have previously mentioned, this perfume bottle was inspired and fashioned from one of Marc's signature handbags, I have never seen a perfume in this style of bottle which I love as it is so unique in my collection. 

The bottle features a beautiful, transparent, emerald green-toned heavy glass, with an oversized-chanel gold hardware chain with a black tassel attached, the lid completes this packaging replicating a matte black faux snakeskin lid. The Marc Jacob logo and title is embossed and engraved in gold on the centre of the glass finishing it off luxuriously. I love how much thought and consideration has gone into this packaging as it really mimics a handbag in miniature form.


As with most Marc Jacobs perfumes, the longevity of this fragrance does not disappoint. It is extremely powerful and is not for the faint hearted. If you opt for lighter, day time smells I would definitely avoid this due to its more powerful and edgy tones. This fragrances is very rich and woody with top notes of plum, iris, saffron, rose and jasmine to complement the heartier, woodier notes.


Top - Italian Plum, Iris flower, saffron
Mid - Bulgarian rose, Jasmine sambac, iris
Base - Vetiver, papyrus woods, liquid amber

You can purchase this product from BeautySpin.
