My Brand Addiction – Marc Jacobs
And no. This post is not going to be about Russell Brand’s addition with Heroin.
For the past forever, I have been obsessed with the brand Marc Jacobs and today I thought I would share a couple of his products I own, and have been loving!
Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
One Word. Gorgeous. I know this is one of his older fragrances, but ever since I picked up the bottle in Myer’s I was obsessed. I remember that I originally went to buy his most recent fragrance (at the time) Daisy Dream, not because I was super obsessed with the packaging and it came with a free bag and mini travel perfumes. One spray from this bottle and I was hooked. The lady at the counter actually gave me one of the Daisy Dream gift bags and mini perfumes, so it was a win-win situation. I find this fragrance is so easy to wear, it’s a floral-woody fragrance and I wear it on a daily basis. I’m currently on my second 100ml bottle, and I get so many comments when I’m wearing it.

Divine Decadence by Marc Jacobs
Now, this perfume has a funny story… This is DIVINE Decadence by Marc Jacobs. Now Marc decided to design two different perfumes one Decadence and one Divine Decadence, but he only decided to change the colors of the bottles… Even the box it comes in is the same. Now I have been crushing on the Decadence fragrance for over two years now, it is just the perfect fragrance. For my 20th birthday, I was kind of expecting to get it from either my parents or my boyfriend Joseph, it was the only thing I asked for. Anyways, so my parents didn’t buy it and I had to wait for a couple days until Joseph got home from work for him to give his gift to me, so I was hoping he would have got it. When he finally came home from work he handed me a gift bag and guess what was in it… Daisy Eau So Fresh… I couldn’t even and I literally cried because it was the wrong one. He did explain that there was no Decadence in stock and I had to wait for Christmas.
So Christmas came around and my Mum gifted me a box and I knew exactly what it was, MY PERFUME! I opened the wrapping and saw the box it was perfect. Later that day, I open the box to reveal that she also bought me the wrong one, she got DIVINE decadence. Why Marc??? I didn’t get upset this time and decided I would have to purchase the real Decadence myself hahaha. Marc, you had to make this real hard, didn’t you?
So now it’s almost Valentines day and guess what! I finally was able to grab it online and it’s in the mail coming for me <3. #TreatYoSelf. Oh, and it was on sale 35% off the regular price.
Back to the fragrance right… Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence is a radiant, sensual floral fragrance. The original Decadence is a very mature fragrance and isn’t as florally as this fragrance, I think Marc remade this fragrance to make it more versatile and not so strong, however, I enjoy the strongness of the original. Divine Decadence and Decadence are both amazing fragrances and I am going to enjoy having both to choose from.

Baker Navy Leather Watch by Marc by Marc Jacobs
This. Watch. Oh, this watch. I love how all my Marc Jacobs products have a story.
For my 18th birthday, my parents were pretty set on buying me a nice watch. They knew I was interested in the Marc Jacobs ones so one night we sat down and went through them and this was the one I fell in love with. I love the color and simplicity of it. So we searched every David Jones/Myer store we visited for this watch and I could never find it. They had the other colors but I was pretty set on the Navy and Rose Gold. I ended up calling their main office asking where I could get it from and they told me that the Navy version isn’t available in Australia…
About 2 months after my birthday, we were down at the Gold Coast picking up my ex-new car (that’s another story) and I thought I might as well try and ask one of the ladies at Myers if she had seen this watch in the store before. She told me that she literally just put the last one on hold for another customer that was coming back to pay for it soon. I thought to myself, this chick has no idea what I’m talking about and I asked if I could have a look. And there it was! In pure flesh! I showed Mum. We both couldn’t believe it was sitting right in front of us. We told the lady our story of trying to find this watch, we even had a friend lined up over in Italy to buy it and send it over, and the lady must have felt sorry for us. She ended up selling the watch to us right then and there. I don’t know what she told the other customer but I am so thankful she actually gave it to us. Boy, it was so worth it!
** If you didn’t know already Marc had a second brand Marc by Marc Jacobs, I think it was to target a different demographic. This watch was a part of that brand and can no longer be bought through his site, however, I did find one at Joma Shop.
