Earlier this year, the highly anticipated new fragrance from Marc Jacobs was announced with an expected launch in August. As a huge lover of the Daisy fragrances I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Daisy Dream. Not only was the bottle to die for but the fragrance itself is a lighter, more ethereal version of the original Daisy, inspired by blue skies and of course, daisies. If you are a fan of the Daisy fragrances, then Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream needs to go on your Christmas list right now!
I have the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream gift set* that includes the 50ml fragrance, a shower gel and body lotion. The items in the gift set are available to purchase separately and the fragrance comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml sizes. Fragrance Direct have the best offers of Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream with up to £11 off the RRP.
I have several of the Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances including the original as well as some of the limited edition bottles alongside my personal favourite Daisy Eau So Fresh. Aside from the bottles being so cute and dressing table worthy, I love how the Daisy family all have the same underlying scent but are all so different. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream has been described as a more sophisticated version of the 2007 best-seller, however as much as I love it, I still prefer the original and would say that was more grown up than Daisy Dream. The blue effect fragrance is made from a combination of floral-fruity aromas. Top notes of blackberry, pear and grapefruit splash onto the skin and linger into heart notes of wisteria, litchi and jasmine. The fragrance settles down quite quickly onto my skin and as soon as it has warmed up, I get the musk, coconut and white wood aromas. It’s fresh and flirty and a really gorgeous, feminine girly fragrance. My only downside to Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is that it doesn’t last too long and needs generously topping up through the day. You can increase the longevity by layering up with the shower gel and body lotion. The body lotion has a fine shimmer through it which leaves a luminosity on the skin.
The Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream gift set is a wonderful treat for a Christmas present, whether you gift it or receive it. I’m really enjoying wearing the fragrance which receives so many compliments each time I put it on. The bottle has made its way onto my dressing table with my other Marc Jacobs fragrances, and with a bottle that beautiful, I really couldn’t keeo it hidden away!This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
