oh, honey, no. keep walking.

Sharing is caring. So, here it is, my Thursday Beauty Share.

The highly anticipated release of Marc Jabobs’ newest fragrance “Honey” hit the shelves of Sephora, so I followed my nose like a good bunny. Oh, but my little rabbit shoulders fell with the first spray. Honey by Marc Jacobs doesn’t smell of honey at all. Just sweet on non-distinct. I prefer Jo Malone’s Nectarine & Honey cologne, though I’m not crazy about it’s longevity or silage. I purchased Vanille Insensee from Sephora, in the rollerball size spray, and while I loved the cozy cling, FARINA memories amped up with a sophisticated filmy wood, like a lazy Sunday in, wearing his XL shirt, or in your grey sweatshirt draped over a shoulder in nubby wool socks, with your legs flung over the edge of a plush chair, the silage wasn’t big enough and the scent stayed too close to my skin. HOWEVER, I recently revisited the perfume in the fuller size and was more liberal with my application, making sure to spray my clothes a bit, too.

“Holy vanilla beans is this good.” I am in love. I think this perfume is perfect for fall and winter (not because it’s heavy – it’s not – but because it’s cozy and comforting, a snuggle scent. Sitting beside a boy who made you a mixed tape one summer, on the bus ride back to “civilization’ that moment hangs in the bloom of Vanille Insensee. Even my 6 year old son remarked, “Don’t leave now,” after a bedtime story, “you smell too scrumptious.” A lighter girls’ nights out, I’d layer this with a femenine rose scent like Rose de Rosine Roseberry. Love, boozy, acoustic music, arousal. Buying the bigger bottle now because I can’t stop wanting to lick my arm. When I can’t eat what I want, I instead obsess over perfume, which is the air food group. I could throw such a dinner party, where courses are served to complement a certain fragrance. I wouldn’t be the first.

Beauty and hair updates to come soon. xoxo
