Decadence by Marc Jacobs

I have been on the hunt for a new fragrance for a while now after finishing my fabulous Flash by Jimmy Choo.

When I came across Decadence, I wasn't sure at first. I went in and out of Boots three times trying to make up my mind as to whether I liked it or not. It wasn't until I sprayed it on to my skin that I thought it was lovely. I don't think spraying perfume on those sample strips of card are at all helpful. 

Now, after just over a month of using it, I can honestly say I have fell in love with this perfume. It's just so womanly and rich. I like sweet scents, but this is simple, elegant and refreshing.

I researched the ingredients and this perfume is quite the concoction. The top notes include plum, saffron and iris. Bulgarian rose, samba jasmine and orris root from from the heart of the perfume, while the base includes warm liquid amber, vetiver and papyrus wood.

The sillage is great. It just lingers in the air and you can walk in and out of a room and still smell it. Really impactful and I have had so many compliments about this fragrance. It just fills the air so wonderfully and melts into the skin perfectly

I would say Decadence last for around 5/6 hours. It's one of those fragrances that melts into your skin, so when you think the scent has faded someone surprises you and tells you how nice you smell. 

What it smells like to me...
When I picked this up I could smell what I thought was vanilla. It has a richness and sweetness about it which I adore. You can definitely smelly the fruitiness and the woody undertone which is perfection. Not too sweet, a perfect fragrance for autumn/winter.

Overall, I think its a wonderful perfume. Definitely one I would recommend to all my friends. It's sophisticated and womanly and makes me feel sexy. I will definitely purchase this again once I have run out. £77 for 100ml - I cannot complain!
