Daisy, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Perfume

I'm not a big perfume lover. I spray perfume maybe 10 times a year, usually for nights out. But like most girls, I can't resist browsing at the ever-interesting perfume bottles and sniff all the new scents. There are so many scents that I like, but because of this, I can't possibly buy all the scents I 'like'. Out of all the scents, there's one scent that has grown on me and I have fond memories of, the Marc Jacobs Eau de Parfum. And I've been meaning to buy a bottle for awhile, but I've been slightly hesistant becaues I wasn't sure if the flowery smell was too strong for me to wear for too long of a time so I never got around to buying it.

I was excited when I saw the new ads of Daisy, the Marc by Marc Jacobs scent, in Teen Vogue. It's got that sweet, non-chalent The first time I smelt it, it smelled like any other perfume out there in the market. But at the encouragement of the Marc salesgirls (who told me not to buy the Marc Jacobs perfume but try Daisy instead,) I sprayed both scents onto perfume paper and brought them home to smell for a day. (The salesgirls also told me that their first shipment at the Hong Kong store soldout in 3 days!)

After smelling both scents at least once an hour, I've decided that on the surface, Daisy smelt only like a light, fruity, flowery scent. But later on, the scent smelt musky and most importantly, of Gardenia, the signature scent of the Marc Jacobs perfume. (Yes, I know I think too much before buying things.) According to the Daisy site, Daisy's notes include strawberry, ruby red grapefruit, violet leaves, gardenia, violet leaves, jasmine petals, musk, vanilla and white woods. Not exactly what I smelt, but close enough. And surprisingly, since I've bought it two weeks ago, I've already used it 4 times. Perhaps the reason I haven't been using much perfume before was that I haven't found my right one yet?

What do you think of Daisy? Isn't the bottle simply adorable? Has anyone smelt it or bought it yet?

I love the bottle -- it's so cute. But I'm not a fan of the scent at all. It's not too strong, or anything like that. I just don't like the way it smells. Period :(

i have the marc jacobs perfume (not daisy) and wear it a lot. i've smelled daisy in sephora but never worn it. i think it's really important to wear a perfume before you make up your mind on it - what smells great on someone else might smell horrible on you, and vice versa. i'm probably more of a perfume freak than most people, even though i can't buy a ton of them. nowsmellthis is a really great perfume blog to check out if you're interested in learning more.

I think Daisy is a lovely fragrance too, just sweet and fresh and clean, but I haven't bought it because as a 32 yr old I'm concerned it might not be age-appropriate.. I mean, the scent might be just a little too young for someone my age to be wearing it. Maybe I'm wrong.. I don't know. I just hope he makes something similar for grown-up girls!

i simply love daisy. Whats so attractive about it is that it doesnt cover you up with a pretencious smell. It just lightly covers you and whats special is that it ends up smelling a little different on everyone. I already have a bottle.

Daisy is a great scent. I waited a while before I got it because I wanted to be sure, and now that I've got it, I love it! Sometimes, I'll smell it and wonder what smells so good..and go oh duh! I've never been much of a perfume girl either, but this scent is so easy to wear. The only thing is that the scent is not very long lasting; coupla hours TOPS.

I was in Macy's the other day and the sales talked about this to me. I love it right after I smelt it but I'm thinking if I should wait until sometime close to Thanksgiving or Christmas when there's a gift set with lotion or shower gel together for a better price. Anyway, I'm using Burberry London & Chance by Chanel now, so I can wait a bit...

i love marc jacob's daisy...havent left home without a few spritz since i got them...but one disadvantage is that it doesnt last particularly long and at times when i want it to be just a big stronger...i end up spritzing lots...and there's a visible line that i have used appoximately 30% of it...which has never happened to my other perfumes before.........sigh....glory to Marc Jacobs...love him...

I haven't tried Diasy on myself, but the new Prada scent, Iris Infusion is amazing. I bought it last week and I have been wearing it everyday (unusual for me, a sporadic perfumer). Love it!

well i've smelt the perfume before and i think it has a unique scent. It differs from the usual eau de parfum scent that sometimes can get boring. Being that a daisy doesn't have a distinct smell, and Marc being the mastermind of innovative ideas, he created a new scent for a daisy. So now you can say "i know what a daisy smells like".

How does he come up with things things?

all i kow is that Marc Jacobs is going to be controlling the fashon industry fro a long time.

I've been searching for the perfect perfume for years and have finally found it in Daisy. I'm just a bit concerned that it only seems to come in eau de toilette, I normally go for eau de parfum hoping that the scent will last longer.

i was given the daisy fragrance for my birthday. I wore it for the first time about a month ago and someone commented on how nice i smelt and then he asked me out!!!! I havn't left the house without wearing it now. The only bad thing about the fragrance is it doesn't last long. so i end up wearing loads of it

I love a grapefruit/citrus scent in my perfume, and I usually wear D&G Light Blue, if anything. Daisy sounds heavenly, so I may have to give it a shot.
