Before we start, can we please just take a moment for this bottle?
Marc Jacobs perfumes have always come in very extravagant, artsy bottles; but this one is truly beautiful to me. Daisy Dream is the latest Marc Jacobs fragrance, and I was instantly smitten when I first saw it (it does help that it smells pretty great too).
To me Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream smells fresh and crisp first and foremost, with a slight soapy floral scent carrying throughout. I hardly pick up the fruity notes, but I suspect that it subtly adds to the freshness. It’s a scent that lingers super long even though it’s an EDT, but it’s never overpowering – that’s usually a rare combination to come by.
Officially the top notes are blackberry, grapefruit and pear, the middle notes are jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria and the base notes are white woods, musk and coconut water. I’m really not a fan of coconut scents, so I’m pretty happy that it’s not clearly discernible here.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is available from August 18th, prices are R760 (30ml), R1065 (50ml) and R1395 (75ml).
Now for the fun part! I get to give 1 x 50ml Daisy Dream EDT to a reader. To enter, watch the 2 minute video below for instructions. I’m very much looking forward to your entries!
