Marc Jacobs is my favorite designer. Sorrynotsorry for being a cliché. The single most expensive piece of clothing I've ever purchased was a Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan--not even something from the high-end line!

His perfumes, however, have yet to speak to me on the same level as his clothing. They've all been pretty great--just not "me."

His latest is Honey, which I was kind of hoping would smell like straight-up honey; but this is coming from the man who has a fragrance called Daisy, a flower that doesn't have a scent.

I thought it would be cute to photograph the perfume in the office fridge because, you know, honey; but then Annie was like "Honey doesn't go in the fridge." She teaches me something every day.

Honey is one of the notes, as is honeysuckle, but you get much more peach, pear and orange blossom. Once it's actually on your skin, a few of the warmer notes, like vanilla and "smooth woods," come through subtly.

I do like it, but I don't think it'll become my go-to fragrance the way his deeply discounted outlet and Gilt finds have become my go-to clothing.

In fact, the other day, I was crossing the street next to someone who was most definitely wearing Michael Kors--I don't own a single item of clothing or accessory by him--which I wore years ago, and I fell in love with it all over again. Maybe it's time to revisit it.

How about you? Quick Question: What's your favorite designer fragrance? Do you like clothing by the same designer?
