I love Marc Jacobs Fragrances; they have something special about them. The packaging is never over fussy but simple; and the reason for that? The amazing fragrances contained within the bottle. My favourite Marc Jacobs fragrance so far has been 'Daisy' but that was before I smelt this gorgeous fragrance. What is so unusual about it is the fact that it is one of the Marc Jacobs 'Splash' Collection. Each fragrance from this collection is based on a 'Patisserie' smell, which let me tell you are absolutely amazing!! It's so different to any other fragrance I have ever smelt. A fragrance based on a food is a very new and novel idea, but it really works. 'Biscotti' is one of those biscuits you dunk in your coffee and this fragrance incorporated all the satisfaction you would gain from dipping one in your coffee. The fragrance surrounds you in an air of comfort somehow.

As soon as I opened the bottle I was transported somewhere very dreamy. The perfume had a warmth about it without it being overpowering and unwearable. Some fragrances can be categorised by 'night' or 'day' fragrance; this fragrance can fall in to both categories. It is really, really wearable. The immediate note that hits your nose after spraying is a comforting orangey smell, which I assume must be the bergamot and orange flower. Bergamot is particularly good at releasing endorphins, so no wonder this is the ultimate feel-good fragrance. After about 10 minutes of wearing however, you can certainly smell the vanilla and a very small amount of musk.
