Product Review – Marc Jacobs Decadence Fragrance

Marc Jacobs Decandence Review

If you a perfume lover like me, then you will know all about Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume and how amazing it is. I get that some people may not like the fragrance as much as I do, I know my sister doesn’t, but NO one can ignore the beauty of the bottle. Its like Marc Jacobs went all out with the packaging of this perfume. The bottle is the definition of beauty!

It is the best I have ever seen in all my 29 years of sniffing various fragrances. Ok, I haven’t really been sniffing fragrances all my 29 years on planet earth, but you get the point right? I have never seen any perfume bottle like this, so thumbs up to the brains behind this beauty. They deserve an outstanding award for the bottle design.

Let me tell you more a bit more about this glamorous bottle; it was designed to resemble a handbag with its faux python flap, a gold chain, and a silky black tassel, and it I think they nailed the look. The bottle looks exactly like a handbag. My daughter actually thinks it is one, lol.

Product Description:

Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum collection is an invitation to indulge. The sensual woody scent symbolises the ultimate in feminine glamour and sophistication.

Decadence elevates the irreverent spirit of Marc Jacobs fragrances to a new level of luxury with bold styling, opulent craftsmanship and a revolutionary bottle design inspired by one of Marc’s iconic handbags.

The fragrance instantly captivates with succulent Italian Plum, rich Bulgarian Rose and sensual Liquid Amber, to give you a signature of pure indulgence.

Here are my thoughts on Decadence:


  1. I love the sophisticated fragrance. It smells expensive and amazing.
  2. I love the bottle, like you know already. Did I mention the perfume came in a suede pack? I have never seen anything like this, the attention to detail is out of this world. I usually bin my perfume bottles, once I am done with the contents, but I will be keeping this bottle for a very long time.
  3. It stays on ALL day, which is great, and I can always tell when anyone has it on. It has a signature scent.
  4. The price varies from £48.50 – £86.00, for a 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, so there should be a bottle for every budget.
  5. You can grab a bottle online and in stores like Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis, and many more.
  6. You only need a little to stay on all day.

I can’t fault the Marc Jacobs Decadence at all. It is currently my favourite perfume on my dressing table, and I save it for VERY special occasions. If you a fan of other Marc Jacobs’ perfumes like Daisy, Lola, and Honey, then you will ADORE Decadence, or you could just grab one collect the bottle.

Have you tried Decadence? What do you think of this perfume? Are you as blown away as I am? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.

  1. Ok, so I would looove to sit in on one of these design product meetings, I love the design of this bottle, giving it bag-like detailings is super clever. I also like to collect perfume bottles so would add this to my collection! ( :

  2. I tried this in boots a few months back but it’s actually the bottle design that puts me off. I get that the attention to detail is cool and I know you like it but to me it just seems a bit clunky, if you know what I mean? I feel like a full size would just weigh my bag down. I haven’t actually seen the sued version though, I might have to check that one out.

  3. I love this perfume. I tried it in a friend’s house and fell in love with it immediately. It was on me the whole day. Planning to get mine. I also adore the bottle, it is beautiful.

  4. The bottle is a wow on it’s own. Never mind the perfume. I am afraid I am a bit of a stick in the mud with perfume and only buy my tried and tested of Opium, though I did treat myself to the new Opium last year. If someone buys me a bottle of something different then that is great, though that hasn’t happened in a long time as they know me.

    Now my daughter loves to try different perfumes and I think a bottle of this will end up in her stocking for Christmas this year. Yes I am that well organised and plan ahead. I can then get to have a smell and you never know. There maybe a perfume out there that will go alongside my tried and trusted (though boring to many) perfume.

    Thank you for posting about it. I always enjoy reading what you have to say. I do agree and think I may just nab the bottle to keep after use when my daughter isn’t looking, though it might be a bit difficult as my daughter lives abroad so I will be watching that bottle when we visit, or she’s home

  5. I have this fragrance too and I absolutely adore it.The bottle isn’t for me though, I think the lid is hideous lol but the actual perfume is stunning which is what matters. Fab review as always, love how you go through the pros and cons xxx
