Marc Jacobs’ Bang Bang: more bang for your buck?

I’m famous for my lack of brevity so I’ll try to keep my review of the new Marc Jacobs’ fragrance Bang Bang brief and to the point. Described as a fresh and sophisticated take on the orignal Bang (it has a nice citrussy opening and a reassuring, if pedestrian, sandalwoody warmth) it’s wearable enough but not as punchy as the original and, like so many fragrances today, leaves me rather underwhelmed. Of course, as with the original fragrance, it’s all about the flacon really but it’s also proof, if proof were needed, that things ain’t always better second time around.

If you fancy giving it a whirl, though, Bang Bang will be available from The Perfume Shop from 24th august priced £41 for 50 ml eau de toilette.
