Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
If you want a “never mind me, I’ll just blend in right here” type of perfume, then try Marc Jacobs Daisy.
Daisy opens as clean, green apple fruity-floral shampoo with a hint of grapefruit and nondescript berries. And the heart is nondescript florals. OK, I do get the violet but the rest of the flowers are nondescript. The base is nondescript woods and floral musk.
Daisy is a good perfume in its composition. It’s seamless. It’s a fantasy perfume. But, it creeps me out. It is too nondescript. It has just as much soul as my dishwasher does.
Notes listed include strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine, musk, vanilla and white woods. Launch date 2007. PERFUMER – Alberto Morillas
Give Daisy a try if you like pretty florals or perfumes like Valentino Valentina, Justin Bieber Girlfriend, Philosophy Falling in Love Summer, A Dozen Roses Shakespeare in Love, and/or Byredo La Tulipe. Daisy is a feminine perfume. And it comes across as very young to me…like for an 8 year old.
Daisy has average projection and below average longevity. I got 3 hours of wear out of it. It’s not a perfume to wear when you feel like standing out.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Nondescript fruity-floral. It creeps me out in a sci-fi the robots take over the planet sort of way. Maybe because this soulless composition managed to take over the market…
