Marc Jacobs | Decadence

If you've become a regular reader of, you'll know that on Friday I talked all about 'The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift' for her, or at-least what I assumed would be the perfect Valentine's Day gift. So, keeping in theme with this post - I want to talk to you about Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume and how I feel it would also make a great addition to the Valentine's Day gifts for her list - hint, hint Matthew.

Decadence by Marc Jacobs epitomizes the cool, unexpected contradiction of classic and irreverence of which he is best renowned.

Marc Jacobs Decadence was developed by Master Perfumer Annie Buzantian in collaboration with Marc Jacobs and Ann Gottlieb. The fragrance itself has a luxurious, thick, woody scent about it - with top notes of Italian Plum, Saffron and Iris. At the heart is a bouquet of rich Bulgarian Rose, Lush Orris and creamy nuances of Jasmine Sambac. Liquid Amber, Vetiver and warm Papryus Woods compose the dry down. I find that Decadence is a much more grown up scent than what I'm used to and feel it would be best suited to those who prefer a much more earthy fragrance than that of a floral/fruity aroma.

Marc certainly didn't disappoint here, with a show-stopping, revolutionary design - a somewhat clever nod I'd say to Marc Jacobs' fashion aesthetic, with his iconic handbag shape being reinvented into a bottle with a luxe gold chain and black silk tassel. Not only has it become a go-to fragrance, but the bottle ensures a statement piece of decor in any ladies room - a collection which I am swiftly adding to, as I indulge in what appears to be my fifth bottle to date.

According to Marc Jacobs, "A girl chooses to be decadent, she is not just decadent". Let's say it's a good girl, playing bad.

Decadence was launched in 2015.
