Marc Jacobs Honey Gift Set | The Perfect Christmas Gift

Marc Jacobs Honey Gift Set*
I am a complete sucker for pretty packaging and I think it's fair to say it doesn't get much prettier than Marc Jacbos Honey. Everything about this little parcel of joy makes me beam with happiness - from the bright colours to the simplicity of the beautiful box it comes in - I am completely taken with this.

Not only does it make for the perfect Christmas present, it's also a really lovely treat for yourself. On Fragrance Direct - a website infamous for discounted designer brands, you can pick this up for £44.99 (RRP £53), saving you nearly £10 - and we all know every penny counts at this time of year! Especially when the perfume alone costs £41.95, it's pretty much a bargain.

The scent is absolutely delicious, imagine a smell that you literally want to eat and that’s what you’ve got. With top notes including mandarin and pear. Orange blossom, peach nectar, apricot and honeysuckle making up the mid notes and honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods as the base it’s completely floral, bright and feminine. 

The reason I love gift sets is because you're receiving the perfect recipe of scent. With a shower gel and body lotion used together the perfume has a base to hold on to for a more prolonged and distinctive scent - something super important to me; if I'm wearing a scent I want to smell of it all day long god dammit! 

I don't think there is anything more to say, it's love. (and the bottle looks bloomin' lovely on my dressing table too!)

I love gift sets too - I like using the body lotion to match a fragrance.
This sounds like a nice one. I am a big fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances - although I haven't smelt this one yet.
