Outfit Inspiration ft. Decadence by Marc Jacobs *


Welcome to the first in a series about perfumes! Here at Temporary Princess, I don't talk about perfumes often enough, and I absolutely adore them, so I thought I'd take this chance to get on my soap box and wax lyrical about them. Not only that, I've always seen perfumes as the proverbial icing on the outfit cake, and I thought, what if I sprayed on the perfume first, then picked an outfit to match?

Armed with this as my challenge, I thought I would start with a perfume that has been getting quite a bit of attention recently - Decadence by Marc Jacobs!


What exactly are the notes involved in this scent?

Top notes: Italian plum, saffron and iris
Heart: Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine and orris root
Base notes: Warm liquid amber, vetiver and papyrus root


When sprayed on my wrist, this woody, velvety scent carries notes of sweet plum that lend a seductive feel to it. As such, this is the outfit I found in my closet that I thought would work best with this perfume.

Beautiful, dark and a little rich - the way I feel when I spray on this scent, and also when I wear the dress. The perfect match! This is what I'd recommend for a night out at a fancy restaurant with the one you love, or when you're just looking for a reason to treat yourself!

This retails for $150 for 50 ml and can be found at David Jones, among other stockists.

What is your favourite evening perfume? What would you wear with it?

  1. i have seen this bottle, and I am happy to hear that the scent is as nice as the packaging. I would have bought it just for the packaging because i am shallow like that! Great outfit pick x

  6. Oh yum, does this sound like my kind of fragrance or what! Except maybe for the price tag - oh well I'll save up ha ha. Clever gal TP - I actually do it the other way around,I choose my outfit, and then match my perfume to it. So much fun xxx
