So it’s a pear not an apple scent, but you get that vibe. You know, that whole Eve thing, the delicious moment of biting, the juices, something so pure and simple yet too damn luscious to be “good”.
Before a thousand Daisies, Marc Jacobs had Fresh, a collection of beautifully simple yet seductive scents that captured heavenly olfactories. Some of the favourites (Cotton, Cucumber, Rain and Pear), have been re-released for our delight, and Pear, well, it’s ready for the picking. Simultaneously fresh and spicy, ripe and cool, the clink of ice cubes and the fire of pure spirit, Pear is as sweet and seductive as any forbidden fruit.
Just don’t try to bite the bottle.
