Happy Monday everyone!
I had such a packed weekend that it flew by too quickly. In fact, are the days flying by more quickly for you? It sure feels that way to me. I have a ton of things to do and suddenly, too little time to do it. Eeps!
In the midst of all the hurly burly of life, I decided to cocoon myself in scent. Research has shown that scent has the ability to calm us at our most stressed moments. I couldn’t walk around in a fog of lavender so I opted for an Eau so Fresh scent of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Fragrance bottle
Just looking at the bottle, I had to smile. Look at all those adorable daisies on the cap – wouldn’t it make you smile too? You can’t quite see it, but the fragrance in Daisy Eau So Fresh is a pale pink.
Daisy Eau So Fresh is a lighter sister to the original bestselling Daisy fragrance by Marc Jacobs. That said, I personally did not think it so light as to be impossible to detect. On my skin, it actually initially smelt a little sharp to my nose when first sprayed. I wasn’t quite sure if I’d like it.
However, after a few minutes, the scent mellowed into something a little warmer, a little fruitier and a little floral. That was more pleasant to my nose. I also felt that it smelt a little stronger than when I first spritzed it on. It smelt like I’d just taken a shower and feeling oh so fresh Interestingly, I got some of the fragrance on my hair and every time I’d swish it around, I’d get hints of the scent. I liked that – it smelt clean. On a hot hot afternoon, it felt light and wasn’t suffocating at all. Also I’d been cleaning fresh fish so it helped to have something nice to smell after that
This being an Eau de Toilette and a lighter fragrance, it isn’t quite as long lasting, but it still was fine for me for the most part of the day. It would need topping up if you had an evening do to attend or are y’know meeting someone special in the evening
Oh and you know the flowers on the cap? They are actually pliable plastic vinyl. They’d brighten up any dressing table, that’s for sure – not a fragrance to be kept away in the dark hidden recesses of a cupboard, but to be displayed to bring a smile to your face every time you look at it.
The fragrance has been described as fun, bubbly and smelling like berry fruit punch. I’d agree with the fun and bubbly part. For me, I didn’t think it smelt of berries although there was a hint of citrus (red grapefruit and raspberry are 2 of the scents) and flowers. But its a lovely floral fragrance that makes me feel fresh, young and full of joie de vivre. I would love for it to come in a smaller size though. The smallest for now is 75ml which does make it hard to tote around.
But who knows. Perhaps if this takes off, we might see the solid perfume necklace or rings that the original Daisy fragrance comes in – now that would be cute won’t it? I wouldn’t mind a necklace with a cheery yellow daisy on it.
Marc Jacobs’ Daisy fragrance has been around since 2007 – do you own it or have you smelt it? I was always captivated by the Daisy bottle, which looks pretty much like this one. For some reason however, I’d prefer the daisies to not be pliable but to be of stiff plastic. Strange huh?
The day (and week) has just started for many of us, so here’s wishing everyone a Daisy Day!
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh retails at RM265/75ml and RM340/125ml at fragrance counters.
