There are so many gorgeous takes on the Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance, some of which I’ve featured in previous Fragrance Friday posts, but interestingly I’ve never featured the one that started it all, the original Marc Jacobs Daisy, so today I’m sharing my thoughts on the fragrance, along with a look at the limited edition White packaging. The White version marks 10 years of the Daisy fragrance, which is amazing if you consider just how many gorgeous takes there are on this iconic perfume. As you can see, the extremely elegant bottle is almost completely white, apart from the gold detailing in the flowers and on the lid. There’s just something so beautiful about a white bottle – I really love how pretty and understated it is.
The Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance is light, feminine and young, although not so young that it would feel out of place on someone older – I’m very happy to wear it, as is my mum. The fragrance is a fruity white floral on a base of wood, following a formula that works so well at creating pretty, feminine scents that are very moreish. There’s grapefruit and berries at the top, jasmine and violet at the heart and vanilla, wood and musk at the base; there are some of my favourite notes in there so it was inevitable I was going to like this! Whilst probably best suited to the warmer months, this is a pretty cross-seasonal scent that would work well in Autumn too, although the white bottle is very fresh and summery. The limited edition Marc Jacobs Daisy White is £78 for 100ml here – link – however, if you’re late to the party (reading this at a later date) and the the LE White version is no longer available, you can find the original Marc Jacobs Daisy here – link – starting at £55 for 50ml.
