Marc Jacobs Daisy
Marc Jacobs Daisy has been a cult favourite in the beauty world since its 2007 release, and understandably so. The bottle is absolutely beautiful and of course, it smells really nice too. Last summer I did a week's work experience in Rouen at the French parfumerie Marionnaud, and as a thank you the lovely store manager let me choose three full-sized perfumes to take away with me, so this was one of them. I'd been spraying it on myself every time I went into Boots for years but never actually bought it, so this was a lovely surprise! This has top notes of strawberry, violet leaf and pink grapefruit but it also has elements of jasmine, vanilla and musk. To be honest, I mostly can smell the violet in it. I love this because it's a more mature floral fragrance meaning it's not too sickly-sweet but it also doesn't smell like something your granny would wear. I'm starting to think that this could become the signature scent which I have been on the hunt for for so long - I know I don't need to stick to one scent for life but I love the idea of people associating a scent with me when they smell it. Does anyone else think that? Obviously you can get this in any place that sells perfume such as Boots or a department store.
Do you like Daisy or any of its spin-offs?
