Fresh Fragrance: Marc Jacob's 'Decadence'

When I was younger, I absolutely HATED when my mom was cooking and I ended up smelling like food -- but now, all I ever want is to smell food and eat it LOL BUT the scents we grow up with somehow stick with us as we travel into adult-hood and somehow, the smell of home made sauce (NO, NOT GRAVY) and fresh bread makes me feel like a kid again. Scents tend to do this to us and a good perfume can do the same. 

I recently received a sample of Marc Jacob's 'Decadence' from Influenster and this smell definitely resonates with me. Do you ever just smell something and it immediately makes you feel good? That's where I was going with the food analogy... but I'm never good at those things and really, all I ever think about is food, so you can see where that came from. LOL (PS -- If you are new here, just beware, I literally go off on 2390 tangents, mostly about food and how corny I am. MOVING ON). 

Is this not the cutest bottle ever!?!?

Okay but can we first talk about this packaging!? THIS IS THE SAMPLE. SInce when have you ever received a sample of perfume and it came in a mini purse? Um never. Classic, fresh, and memorable are three words that come to mind when I not only see the package, but when I put it on. 

At first I smelled it when I opened the top and was like 'Oh wow, that's nice.' Then I put it on, and it took on a slightly different smell IMMEDIATELY. I know it takes a while when you put perfume on to smell a little different, but I was automatically in love. I read reviews about it and it said it has notes of vanilla, but I don't smell vanilla. 

The scent is more of a clean, fresh, and bright smell, definitely isn't overpowering, and lasts a while. I love when I have it on my shirt and I get a whiff of it randomly and am like, "oh my gosh what is that, oh yeah me." haha 

As a plus size fashion blogger, I try to bring you all the best picks that you may not have seen or heard of, and although this is more beauty related, I can't help but share this with you guys because it's that good. 

Oh and wait -- look at the packaging that you would get when you actually purchased one:

Okay folks, that's all I got for you today -- I know this is a little different than most of my other posts, but I just needed to share this with you. LOVEEEEE love love. I hope you get to smell it too and love it just as much as me! If you have heard of this or have it, let me know what you think about it in the comments below. Or just come over and say hi! <3
