Marc Jacobs released the cult fragrance Daisy all of seven years ago. For so many young women (including myself) Daisy is one of their first perfumes, with the kind of scent that will take you straight back to the times we wore it. After two years of constant wear in my mid-teens I drifted away from it, almost ignoring its several spin offs, Daisy eau so fresh (the most popular and permanent), Daisy sunshine, Daisy delight… But then Daisy Dream happened. A lot of bloggers have tagged it a ‘grown up’ version of the original, whereas I feel it’s more of Daisy’s carefree older sister, in the summer, who is running from meetings during the week, towards festivals at the weekend.
Scent wise it’s equally as close to Marc Jacobs Honey, very feminine and warm base and heart notes, with fruity top notes, keeping all the fragrances young and refreshing. Here’s a little breakdown of the mentioned fragrances notes:
Daisy Dream; Top / Blackcurrant, Grapefruit, Pear; Heart / Jasmine, Lychee, Blue Wisteria; Base / White Woods, Musks, Coconut Water
Daisy; Top / Strawberry, Grapefruit; Heart / Gardenia, Jasmine, Violet; Base / Musk, Woody, Vanilla
Honey; Top / Pear, Mandarin Orange; Heart / Orange Blossom, Peach, Honey Suckle; Base / Honey, Vanilla
It’s easy to see that Marc Jacobs really has a winning combination for all his perfumes, tweaking only several ingredients and creating a whole new feel and captivating a whole new audience. This is exactly what’s been done with Daisy Dream, I can sense that when it hits stores in July (currently a World Duty Free exclusive) that it’ll be a popular one (like anything Marc Jacobs has come up with hasn’t gone down well…), so I’m sure glad I got mine before it’s all sold out! (It’s definitely only part of the reason I went on a mini break…) If you’re a fan of Daisy, or Honey, this is worth a sniff, I will even say that in a few years it could well be the late-teens-and-early-adulthood fragrance I’ll remember as fondly as my first.
