Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream review + giveaway {COMPETITION CLOSED}

Before we start, can we please just take a moment for this bottle?

The beautiful Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream bottle
The beautiful Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream bottle – the inspiration is daisies floating in the air.

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).

    I dream about:
    Amazing Cara Delevigne-esque eyebrows (I have very tragic, scarce ones), trips to Prague, New York and Japan, Nars makeup I covet and being able to crownbraid my own hair!

    I’m subscribed already. Woohoo! I dream of headlining FNB stadium in front of my own band. Sold out, people screaming madly and me jumping around on stage. Sadly, in real life, I can’t sing at all. So for now, it’s just a dream.

    Ironically, I had an actual dream last week that I had a pet Sting Ray, he was small and I kept him in the bath (I know this wasn’t part of the entry but I felt like it was too good a dream not to share).

    Already been a subscriber for a couple months, LOVE your blog and videos πŸ™‚

    My partner and I have just received a building loan from the bank.. currently every night my dreams are about finishes, fittings, floor tiles, roof insulation, living green and making our first home look like “us”. And possibly converting one of the bedrooms into a walk in shoe closet.

    Hi there! Thank you so much for a great blog (and done, I subscribed to your youtube channel). I dream all day every day … some dreams are quite unrealistic (being a pilot … a bit late now, I guess, and I sucked at maths), others achievable (writing a book … if I discipline myself), others very broad, but doable (BEING a hero and stop LOOKING for heroes), others a bit more demanding (change my current career and become a makeup artist/stylist).

    But I digress. All I sometimes want, is for my own ginger locks to behave and look like those of Florence Welch, for me to be able to apply red lipstick without being scared of getting it all over my teeth, and to have a very strong singing voice, and own a horse again. Also, to find THE PERFECT concealer. I haven’t yet!

    For me it would be a dream to find comfy heels, not too high just medium height as I cannot walk for long in them. And next to travel the world making new friends and documenting my travels. This I know will come true someday >>heres to wishing wish πŸ™‚

    Subscribed! πŸ™‚ So, I am a huge (and I mean massive) Elvis Presley fan. I have loved his music ever since I was a little girl as my dad used to listen to his music and watch Elvis concerts on DVD. My dream is to one day travel to Memphis, Tennessee, to visit Graceland, the house Elvis lived in. If he were still alive, my dream would’ve been to see him in concert, but visiting his home will also do. πŸ™‚

    My dreams are completely delusional (or maybe it’s just me). I have always dreamed of being an actress, a dancer, or singer ( hopeless at all). I dream of being thin, rich and perfectly tanned. Having peachy skin. I dream of being the heroine in a Mills & Boon…I know, crazy right??! πŸ˜€ P.S. Subscribed and really heart the bottle. x
