Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream

by - 15:21:00

It's been a while since I posted about a fragrance on here but I've finally got one I like enough to share. For those of you who don't know, I'm a big fan of the Marc Jacobs Daisy line. Some people say there are too many versions of it but I for one can't get enough. 

I've had this perfume in my collection for a little while but I hadn't tried it till recently. It took a brief appearance of a British Summer to make me break the seal. Safe to say, I'm now wondering why it took me so long to crack it open. 

Compared to the other scents in the family, I'd say this is the youngest of the bunch. It's more fruity, with just enough floral to balance it out. If you're looking for specific notes, I always head straight to Fragrantica. I doubt I'd be able to guide you through it like they would. 

For the sake of convenience however, he's a little ditty that I managed to find on the Boots website, 'Light and airy, Daisy Dream is both floral and fruity. The fragrance captivates with delectable top notes of blackberry, fresh grapefruit and succulent pear. The heart imparts a rich, feminine jasmine, notes of lychee and blue wisteria. A dreamy drydown of white woods, musks and coconut water.'

That's the official spin, as I honestly have no clue how I'd put into words what this smells like. Notes aside however, it smells to me like a more angelic take on the traditional Daisy scent. It's creamier, a hint sweeter and a touch fresher. For Spring/Summer, I can't think of a more perfect scent right now. That being said, I'll probably still be wearing this in the thick of Winter, so ignore that. 

If you're unable to visit a store to test it, I would say that it's not a million miles away from the original. Chances are, if you like the original Daisy scents, you'll also like this. If you already own others and are wondering if you need it, it definitely is different enough in my opinion. #TreatYoSelf people!

If you're not already sold on the scent, how could you not be sold on the packaging? It's pretty much the stuff of dreams. I'm a particular fan of how they've brought the daisies down onto the actual bottle. Even without the lid, it's still a showstopper. 

If I've somehow managed to sell you on this one, you can find it here. It comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml sizes and you can also get the matching shower gel and lotion too if you're feeling particularly fancy. 

Now that's all said and done, I'm off to douse myself in this and enjoy the sunshine. Have a great day guys.
