Isn’t that a gorgeous little purse? Just kidding…it’s a perfume.
Coming this fall, Decadence by Marc Jacobs adds a new personality to his collection of women’s fragrances. This opulent perfume is meant for that sophisticated urban chic chick who isn’t afraid to indulge in the finer things in life. As Jacobs puts it, A girl chooses to be decadent, she is not just decadent.
If you want to make a decadent choice, this is the perfume to pick. Bottled in an emerald green handbag design with a gold chain and black tassel, this eau de parfum screams sexy. It was developed by Jacobs along with leading fragrance consultant Ann Gottlieb and Master Perfumer Annie Buzantian to create a luxurious sensual woody scent.
Liquid amber, vetiver, and papyrus woods form the drydown base, while a bouquet of Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine Sambac, and Orris comprise the heart. Top notes of Italian plum, iris, and saffron finish this sultry scent.
And if that isn’t sexy enough for you, Decadence’s spokesmodel is the alluring Brazilian bombshell and former Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima. Set to appear in a slinky Marc Jacobs slipdress with tousled sexed-up hair, Lima is perfect for the pitch. You can feel her sex appeal from a mile away, but there’s also this charm and youthfulness to her. There’s no vulgarity in it, said Jacobs in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily last week.
Jacobs has released a number of other perfumes in the past, like the sweet and innocent Daisy, the happy and playful Honey, and the charming and flirty Oh, Lola! To add to his collection, Jacobs decided to go in a slightly new direction with Decadence. I felt like the next story to tell was one of this indulgence of pleasure and luxury, because that’s what decadence is, he told WWD. And I had to tell that in a way that was irreverent, which is very much part of who I am and how we tell stories, which is with an offhanded, irreverent sense of glamour, rather than first-degree glamour “ something a bit more unconventional.
Decadence Eau de Parfum will be available for purchase in October 2015 at Hudson’s Bay, Sephora, and Shoppers Drug Mart. A 50 ml purse-bottle will retail for $115, while 100 ml will go for $140.
