Marc Jacobs hopes to create buzz with latest scent, Honey
Marc Jacobs has chosen to repeat the back-to-nature/entomological theme of his more recent fragrant outings (see the Daisy series, and last year’s Dot) with his latest release, Honey
This ‘sunny and enticing floral’ will be available to buy later this summer. The bottle is an ‘elegantly crafted glass bubble that reveals the cheerful golden hue of the fragrance’. Designed by Coty, in collaboration with Jacobs himself, it features both spots (a stylistic nod to Dot) and the unusual decorative motif of waspishly-striped butterflies, the result being ‘an unexpected fusion of modernity and elegance’.
Developed by Annie Buzantian at Firmenich, working with both Marc Jacobs and Ann Gottlieb, the fragrance contains top notes of green pear, fruit punch and mandarin, heart notes of orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle, and base notes of honey, vanilla and woods.
Honey eau de parfum will be available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml sizes; also a shower gel and body lotion, both 150ml.
