Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette 50ml, £50.
“Hi, my online alias is Daisybutter and I don’t like Marc Jacobs’ Daisy.”
I feel like I just committed a cardinal sin by confessing that Marc Jacobs’ original Daisy fragrance just doesn’t do it for me.
Light, fresh and floral, it was supposed to be my signature scent when I bought it shortly after creating my blog. Alas, 5 years on and I still can’t get on with it. (Mama Daisy is a huge fan, however!)
Enter Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Dream. This summer’s most-talked about and coveted scent. I finally caved and bought this in Brighton on a sleepy and sunny (ahem, hungover) Sunday after Pride. The bottle is super dreamy and looks ideal nestled on my dressing table.
The fragrance has top notes of blackberry, fresh grapefruit and succulent pear, with lychee, jasmine and wisteria heart notes. Personally I adore the combination of jasmine, lychee and blackberry, giving a warm yet fresh scent. Base notes include white woods, musks and coconut water, making it great for day or night. Wear wise, I tend to wear it more for lunch dates and evening outings, but I wouldn’t class it as an occasion fragrance.
