Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs

I first tried Marc Jacobs two and a half years ago and hated it. It was too much for me then, but over time I've changed my mind. I think Marc Jacobs Blush is actually a better fragrance and the best of the three.

The notes in Marc Jacobs are:
Gardenia, Wild Muguet, Skin Musk, Cedar, Ginger

This fragrance isn't for the faint of heart and you have to be careful of overapplication because it is rather strong. I have given myself headaches wearing this stuff! That being said it's still a lovely fragrance an incredibly lush white floral bouquet with a hint of ginger. I like this fragrance best in warmer months as an all day fragrance. It isn't one that I like to wear on a regular basis but nice on occasion.

The perfume purse spray retails for $100/.25 oz at Sephora however, I found a single open bottle at Marshalls that was 90% full. It had been opened and was used a few times for $14.99 which is the regular price. Normally, I wouldn't have paid full price for a fragrance that had been used but at 85% off the retail price I couldn't beat it! I think the juice in the bottle is Eau de Parfum as Sephora also lists the regular bottle as perfume. I think the higher price is more for the packaging which is in a white leather case.

Comments:
God, Sand, you always make everything sound SO DAMN GOOD. Even the stuff you don't like.

Infuriating, I tell you.

xxoo
 
Thanks for the good review, Sand.

When I first tried this one, I found it a bit light for me. But remember, I am the queen of dramatic. (even in scents.)
 
(((J))) You make everything sound hilarious! What I wouldn't give to walk a mile in your shoes!

Hi B,

You're a bold woman so of course you'd choose a bold fragrance! :)

Hugs,
Sand
