Marc Jacobs Blush

Marc Jacobs Blush (2004) is so close to Kate Spade Eau de Parfum, but I love it. It also reminds me of the jasmine note in Le Labo Jasmin 17 which has more of a rich, vanillic base but is otherwise similar. Blush is a simple, sweet Floral with honeysuckle and living flower jasmine (non-indolic). I get some licorice from it. It's cool at first and dries down warmer. It's very pretty, but it also has this interesting spacey characteristic; I sometimes look for the molecules in the air because it seems I don't catch the smell, but if I toy with the bottle under my nose a bit, I can smell it again. Blush is a great daytime/romantic fragrance, and as fleeting as it sounds, it's fairly strong.
