Marc Jacobs Daisy

I remember a time when I used to have about five perfumes on the go at once.  I know exactly why I changed from having five to having one.  I bought a disgusting perfume from Boots during the sales that smelled of sick and cheap perfume..

I'm slowly getting back to the person I was *sob sob* and am currently using three perfumes alternately.
Marc Jacobs' Daisy is one of them and it is a departure from my usual citrus based perfume choices but I find that I'm kind of over the perfumes that I used to love before.  I want a bit of sophistication damn it!

This baby definitely has dressing table appeal (even for those of us without a dressing table) which is something that I think perfumes should have. Decent perfumes aren't cheap so the least they can do besides smelling good is look good.  The daisies are made of rubber and aren't so stiff that you can't bend them.

The official line from Marc Jacobs regarding the scents/notes that make up this fragrance are:

  • Top: Wild strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit
  • Heart/middle: Violet, jasmine, gardenia
  • Base: Vanilla, musks, white woods

The fact that the base notes are vanilla and musk just show me how much of a change it is.  I used to shun perfumes that had the slightest hint of vanilla or musk but the base notes of this perfume are what I love most about it.  You know the smell you get the day after from an item you've perfumed the day before? That is what I love about this.

The difficulty now, however, is finding something that is a perfect stepping stone between a citrus scent and one that reminds me of mothballs.  I just don't feel sophisticated enough to pull off certain scents.

In the meantime, if you want to pick this up, you can do from where the 50ml costs £45.00 and the 100ml costs £56.00.


  1. I love wearing this in spring/summer. The vanilla in it doesn't show at all on my skin.I mostly get wild tart strawberries mixed in with some greens. Adorable bottle.

  2. Totally agree with you about how perfumes should have dressing table appeal - when I see a boring or ugly bottle I think "why would you do that?"

    I've smelled this perfume and I quite like it - like you I tend to prefer citrusy perfumes (or really sweet ones) but I feel like I need to be a bit more like a grown up...

  3. Right now I'm loving Dolce & Gabbana The One & The One Rose as well as Givenchy Play Intense

  4. my current fave fragrance i absolutely adore is diptiques doson! its lush!
