• 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.

      I am trying to imagine a conversation between Marc Jacobs and Ann Gottlieb. Can't! Too fabulous! Looking forward to this one. Love Annie Buzantian's work.

      I like that ^^^ bottle much better than that ugly red & black Dot.

      Very cute bottle. Designed by Coty, who would have thought? I'm not a huge fan of fruit punch but I can't wait to try this anyway!

      I'm always saying I'm somebody who isn't swayed by trendy packaging, but I have to say this is done tastefully and sticks to the Marc Jacobs style. I'm eager to see if my lady friends will be attracted by the "nectar".

      I would love to like this, because I love the idea of a honey fragrance - but what are the chances of it having any of the beauty and complexity of honey? Looking forward to trying it but not getting my hopes up...

      Agreed - I am a sucker for honey, but doubt it will live up to my hopes. I think I did see a strip in a magazine recently... off to check.

      Honey can be tricky -- and aimed at the summer months? Whoa!

      I'd give honey a wide berth if I was a perfumer. It can quite easily come across as urinous.
