honey could be my lover

February 24, 2014

I've been raving on about the Honey perfume ever since I picked up a sample in Debenhams back in August 2013, much to the delight of my family, especially as my second choice for perfume was the Katy Perry Killer Queen, which was much cheaper and came in a much bigger bottle. But alas, my family are amazing and bought my Honey. I screamed. I was very happy.
 
Honey is described as a 'sunny, delicious, floral, energetic and alluring fragrance' and I can wholly agree with all of the million adjectives the promoters use. It's great, its pretty, it lasts a fair while and the perfume bottle as expected from Marc Jacobs is unique and looks perfect on my dressing table (or chest of drawers.)
 
I expected it to be a scent I'd only like wearing in the summer, but it works in the winter too, which surprised me. Who would have known that smelling honey, oranges and pears throughout January would bring me so much happiness? It may be because I despise winter and probably will forever, but when I use Honey it gives me hope that summer is fast approaching and I won't be in wooly jumpers and tights for much longer.
 
I'm not a beauty reviewer, so don't really understand all of the 'top notes, bottom notes' things, but what I do know is that it smells bloody good, isn't too in your face and does change smell throughout the day. According to the Amazon description, (which is very very biased) 'orange blossom resides at the heart of the fragrance and mingles with the nectar of honeysuckle and peach for a note of sparkling femininity.' Basically, it's not like a Lynx body spray and would only smell good on guys if they wanted to act like laydeees. Yay.
 
Do you use Honey? Or do you have a different favourite perfume?
 
Love, Olivia x
