If I was a bar of chocolate I’d be nibbling myself

Oh, now this is good news: Marni eau de parfum is one I’ve been keeping a close watch on since it launched in late 2012 and a year later it’s arriving on our shores. At Arnotts to be exact, where it’s in-store now and where a 30ml bottle will cost €65, with the larger 50ml and 130ml sizes costing €93 and €129 respectively.

Arnotts will also stock the ancillaries like shower gel, €50, body creme, €83, and body lotion, €59, but if you’re looking for the newer rose edit, you’re out of luck so far as it’s not available here. Yet. Watch this space and all that.

So what’s it actually like? Like a zippier Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir, basically. It’s delish. Intensely rosy and spicy, those warm spicy notes are counterbalanced by citrus bergamot and there’s a lot of wood in the base. I’m bathed in it right this very instant. If I was a bar of chocolate I’d be nibbling myself. Yeah, I’m a fan.

If you’re my perfume twin, you’ll like it too.
