***What type of fragrance is this?***
This Marc Jacobs Women's Perfume is a floral fragrance yet it has this musky/earthy underlying smell to it.
It is the perfect fragrance if you would like a scent that is unique, original and timeless. It is not like all the new sweet fragrances that are coming out now.
Its main ingredients are Bergamot and Gardenia. Bergamot gives a very rich earthy smell and gardenia a very floral smell.
I wouldn't say it is the most feminine fragrance but for someone who is looking for something that will really get you noticed among a crowd of women this is it! I think though it is perhaps for an older women, my Mum cannot understand how I like the fragrance at my age. She only just likes it and said a few years ago it certainly wouldn't be a fragrance she would have tried more than once. But I suppose we all look for different things in our fragrance like the label, the bottle and the smell.
***The packaging and price***
The fragrance comes in a very distinctive see through tall rectangular bottle with a black spray top and a small black bow on the top.

* £72.00 for a 100ml eau de parfum

The bottle of this Marc Jacobs fragrance looks so expensive on my dressing table. It is always a fragrance that my friends comment on and ask what it is. It is a very long lasting fragrance due to the Bergamot and is one of my favourite perfumes. It is only stocked in selected stores for example I know that House of Fraser stock it yet Boots does not. It is definitely a fragrance to try!
However considering the current finance situations that most people are in, it is perhaps a fragrance to ask for a birthday or for Christmas as it is very expensive. I wish I had the money to buy the body lotion in the range but I cannot justify spending such ridiculous amounts like £60.00 on a body cream, no matter how luxurious it maybe.
Marc Jacobs Woman is a luxurious, clean and classic fragrance to complement the wearer without overwhelming her /
