Happy. Sunny. Young. Fresh. That’s Honey for you. Its mood continues in the tradition of Marc Jacob’s superbly successful Dot and Daisy. In design the fun placing of stripes and dots in the packaging take Honey further down the happiness trail set by Dot ( Designed by Japanese designer Sayuri Soji in collaboration with Marc Jacob )
Designer Marc Jacob is the man who got those fabulous collaborations going with Murakami and Stephen Sprouse for LV bags while he was Creative director at Louis Vuitton. There is much to written about his fashion success but his entry into fragrances with perfume brand Coty have been equally successful. And then there are those LoveMarc gel lipsticks.
Back to Honey . I was at the Mumbai launch yesterday. It was an elegant, discreet affair at the So spa at Sofitel BKC with cupcakes to match the packaging, honey infused tea and tiny bits of finger food.
A honey and Gemology (the French skin care brand based on gemstones and minerals is used at the spa) hand massage was a bonus and I have made mental notes to go back to the spa for a longer Gemology ritual.
Coincidentally I was in New York when Honey launched and there was the spectacular takeover of Sepphora on Fifth Avenue as part of the launch .
I am not personally that much of a fruity floral person but the layers of green pear and mandarin in the fragrance are balanced with honey and vanilla to add warmth and depth to the floral fruit cocktail. The overall mood is happy and sunny. Perfect for a young bride to be on her mehendi day. (Its the perfect addition to the dressing table just on account of is fun design but then I am a sucker for design )
Just a note – do let the fragrance settle onto your skin after you spray to feel the mood- it takes a little time to open up and reveal its base notes.
Price Rs 4800/5900. Available at key outlets.
