The Marc Jacobs Honey fragrance is the newest project to be released by the fashion house. If the new ‘Honey’ perfume sounds somewhat familiar is with good reason. The new perfume is a flanker for the Dot by Marc Jacobs fragrance launched last summer.

The new scent is expected to match the success of its predecessor. Even the launch date of the scent is said to be similar with the Dot perfume given the fact that it is set to be launched on August 2013. The latest scent was created by the award-winning perfumer Annie Buzantin in collaboration with fragrance consultant Ann Gottlieb.

The new Honey by Marc Jacobs perfume will be launched just before the designer’s color cosmetics collection with Sephora which is scheduled for early September, so the novelties in the beauty department from the luxury label will definitely keep beauty enthusiasts on their toes this summer. Adorned with two honey bees and black and yellow stripes which leave little room for speculating when it comes to the theme of the new scent. The new scent will also benefit from ads in magazines. The new ad campaign which will promote the new scent is also scheduled around that time.

Marc Jacobs Honey 2013, New Fragrance

The Marc Jacobs Honey fragrance lives by its name as far as its notes are concerned. The fragrance first seduces our senses with top notes of pear, fruity punch and juicy mandarin which are complemented by a heart of orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle.

A base of honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods rounds out the fabulous bouquet of scents which seems to instantly create the summer vibe.

The Marc Jacobs flanker will come in three versions with different $50 for 1 oz.; $71 for 1.7 oz., and $92 for 3.4 oz. The new launches also includes 5-oz. body lotion for $45, and a 5-oz. shower gel for $40. The new scent will be distributed by Coty Prestige.
