Marc Jacobs Decadence

"Marc Jacobs Decadence is a sensual, luxurious, woody fragrance, embodying the spirit of irreverent glamour.

"The fragrance opens with sultry top notes of Italian plum, iris flower, and saffron. The heart opens with luxurious notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, and orris. The indulgent dry down reveals the base notes of vetiver, papyrus woods, and liquid amber.

"The cap features a gold chain and deep green python print. A black tassel hangs from the chain on the caps of the 1.7oz and 3.4oz sizes. Magnets secure the cap to the green bottle so that the entire package can be carried by the chain."

Petal to the Metal
Ladylike is overrated -- This fall, floral fragrances are all about the edge.

Addictive Blends
Another way to add kick: opulent, edible notes, which give these florals an "addictive, narcotic" quality, says Dora Baghriche-Arnaud. ... "We have an expression for this type of scent. It's called fleurs á manger - it means 'flowers to eat.'" These scents are having a huge moment right now, she says. ... Marc Jacobs - always on the zeitgeist - has moved beyond fields of daisy dreams and into something way more seductive with his new perfume, Decadence. It blends lush plum with rose and iris.
