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.
Daisy comes in 2 sizes with prices ranging from $65-$82 at Sephora.You can also find it at discounters like FragranceX.com.
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…

I see this thing everywhere. Too bad it’s so nondescript, because the aesthetic is great.

It’s not a bad perfume. It’s just soo smoothed and blended that it ends up being nondescript. I think the bottle is what sold this one 🙂
My word of choice for Daisy would be “elusive” but the impression I had was exactly the same.
Curiously enough, The Eau So Fresh would seem like the “lighter” version but it has a more distinct personality.
I didn’t bother with “Eau So Fresh” because I thought it was just water, lol. Maybe they “got it right” with the flanker.
I thought it was qute boring and safe except for one thing: there’s a cut grass note that’s really harsh on my skin. The lasting power and projection are really weak for the prce (but we can0t deny it, the bottle is adorable!). Personally, I think Chanel Chance Eau Tendre is one step forward, even though it doesn’t smell Chanel-esque. It doesn’t have the grass note, the notes are more interesting and lasts longer.
It vanishes on me so quickly that I bet it’s more complex but I can’t smell it! The bottle is adorable and I’m sure that is why it is so popular. One goes to the store and sees boring bottles and you have this thing that sticks out.
I agree that Chanel Chance Eau Tendre isn’t Chanel-ish but that it is good. I think it’s a good “starter” perfume since it’s light and not overwhelming but not boring either.
Love the packaging but I guess I have to pass on this one. I prefer long lasting perfumes and as you have said here, it does not last long.
