The New York City-based luxury label Marc Jacobs is going to launch a fresh new scent this August, Honey. Marc Jacobs has been working with Ann Gottlieb (the nose behind Calvin Klein’s Obsession, CK One and Christian Dior’s J’adore) and fellow perfumier Annie Buzantian (concocter of fragrances for Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Azzaro) on a new flanker scent to last year’s Dot fragrance, set to be unveiled as Honey. According to WWD, the scent, which will arrive in stores in the late summer, “has top notes of pear, fruity punch and juicy mandarin; a heart of orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle, and a drydown of honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods.” The parfum will appear in 30, 50 and 100 ml sprays as well as a shower gel and body lotion.
