Lovely. Not mature enough or "lady like", but lovely. Somehow reminds me of cactus pears. I'm very likely to buy this for my wife soon.. Update: I bought a bottle for my wife and was horrified at the dry down - pure pepper to my nose. Wish I never bought it.
Daisy by Marc Jacobs, 2007
There's a great acronym that was used in the production of Star Trek the Next Generation. It was "GNDN" and it was used to label panels. It means "goes nowhere, does nothing".
Bubbly grapefruit, light, barely there white flowers, poor longevity. No thanks.
On me I smell a lot of the strawberry and musk. Nothing in between, but the combination is kind of nice. I just got bored with this really fast. Its a nice warm weather scent, but theres just not much too it. Didn't like the bottle, though. However, even Chanel and Versace have come out with fragrances that heavily copy this.
Some people have horrible taste in perfumes, or they're just too sensitive to em, so don't wear them then I say or tell someone their making you physically sick when you are around them following the scent all day. I, however am obsessed with all the ones I have,but I have only one main scent that I love, which is light to everyone around me an which I have gotten many many compliments on, which is Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I think I've gone through 5 or 6 bottles in the past five years. So yeah, a bottle a year. Smells like summer, lightly fresh, slightly fruity and florally girly and ends with warmth. All time favorite. I cant use anything else. The bottle is so pretty and it's an everyday scent which is nice. The only problem that I have is that it doesnt last very long so I go through so many bottles, but I think it's mainly because I just so used to wearing it daiy that I cant smell it on myself as strongly as I did in the beginning but from all the conpliments I'm reminded that even a little spritz goes a long way. Love it! Forever a staple for me. :) I also own a bottle of Lola from Marc Jacobs and I'm wearing the scent today only because my bottle of Daisy is running low. Lola's been sittin in the box for two years and I finally tried it out an I must say it's the complete opposite of Daisy. I like it nevertheless. It has the same end notes.
I mostly got a grassy and slightly sweet scent from this. Sillage and longevity isn't very impressive and while it's not the most remarkable, unique, outstanding fragrance....ok, it's a bit plain....I like it. It's summery, it's uplifting....the price for such an unremarkable, weak fragrance is anything but uplifting, however. Sample was nice while it lasted.
Despite of being far better than the horrific and repugnant Lola Marc Jacobs, Daisy does not capture in particular any of my senses and does not correspond to my olfactory requirements. It's a fruity-floral, an infamous genre in my olfactory vocabulary, and is a reminiscence of a bath soap or a shampoo without any trace of natural or ostensibly natural ingredients, so it could not be ranked among the worty womanly concoctions. What i detect, after an harsh and almost lemony blast of grapefruit, is an airy fruity smell based on a central chord of berries, violets and musky vanilla ( despite the strong grapefruit i smell far reminiscences of Mure et Musc by l'Artisan Parfumeur). This accord represents the backbone of a fragrance that is very fruity and impressive in berries-violets but even a touch appealing in the right addition of vanilla. The last is decently blended and is not caramellous in its link with fruits, too warm or suffocating as in Lola but averagely dry, soft in wodsy musk and airy. The dry down is fortunately balanced in the comparition between creams and woodsy notes. The presence of woods projects a powdery vibe, plays a balancing role and understates the synthetic feel. While Daisy could be worn in summer time Lola is simply an abortion of bombastic fruity-warm industrial caramel. Under the mediocrity in my opinion anyway.
Frankly, I'm a little surprised at all the people who are saying that this fragrance comes across smelling "flowery" or "heavy" on them! :) I'm only half serious when I say this, I realize that the dominant notes that come out in a fragrance are strongly influenced by the type of complexion a person has and the Ph balance of their skin. I sort of wish this fragrance would smell more "floral" on me too, but, alas, it does not! When I wear this perfume, the main notes that come out in it are the green leaves and the wood, mixed with a bit of the fruity notes too. An acquaintance of mine actually asked me if I was wearing men's cologne when she smelled Daisy on me one day! So..for me..it's highly ironic that the bottle features a cute, girlie flower on the cap, because it's pretty much a unisex fragrance as far as I'm concerned! That said, I don't dislike this one. I wear it pretty frequently because it is also a sheer, light, subtle fragrance on me, unless I accidentally spray too much on. Mind you, I'm using the EDT. I suspect the EDP may be stronger, and perhaps it might also be more floral? I actually haven't tried it yet! In any case, I find the EDT works on me as a light, "non-offensive", appropriate for every day kind of scent. I would recommend it as this kind of fragrance, but I see that it doesn't work with certain body chemistries! :) (based on the comments here.)
Daisy didn't seem original or especially appealing to me. It really does deserve to join the ranks of drug-store fragrances aimed at the under-21 market, if it hasn't already done so. (Here in Korea, it's still sold alongside Bulgari and Lanvin products as a more upmarket scent.) It does go a bit play-doh in the drydown, which was nauseating. Fortunately, it has a very short life on the skin, and almost no projection, so I suppose those wishing to be Daisy-fresh can wear it without fear of causing sensitive souls such as myself to leave the room, clutching our stomachs, in search of the nearest ladies' room.
For the EDP (Black Edition): I have had this perfume on my wishlist for a very long time now since smelling it on a tester card a few months ago. Today I decided to try it on my skin, and let's just say I was utterly disappointed. Daisy does not blend well with my skin chemistry at all and ends up smelling like something reminiscent of play-dough. It was somewhat sickening and dirty smelling. When I look back now, I can see why so many people love Daisy, yet I don't consider this fragrance as being unique or outstanding in any way. Marc Jacobs was actually playing it safe when this perfume was created. I can't deny that Daisy is a best-seller and popular amongst young women, yet I wonder how many people bought this fragrance simply because of the bottle design and the hype surrounding it.
