For someone who has a rather extensive perfume collection, I seem to be a creature of habit when it comes to deciding which scents to wear. I usually select my scent dependennt on my mood, but take into account the occasion and the season. I do find that some scents work better in warmer climates than others whilst heavier, deeper fragrances need a cooler environment for the scent to perform its best. At the beginning of summer, Marc Jacobs released the new limited edition version of the best selling Daisy in a blush edition, across the original Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh and Daisy Dream. Out of all the versions of Daisy, and aside from the original Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh has to be my absolute number one of the editions. Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush had high expectations in my mind, but for some reason, it just didn’t strike a cord with me during the warm weather. I decided to revisit Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh Blush, and i’m so glad I did.
My main issue with Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh Blush at first was the overwhelming scent of grapefruit in the blend. It seemed to overpower my skin and although I like some citrus in my scent, it came across as too sharp, and too tangy for my liking. Now the weather has cooled somewhat, I find that now the woody notes are at the forefront and that the pear blend sits better on my skin. The top notes of the fragrance hold pear, apple, mandarin orange and pink grapefruit which seem to bounce across my skin, before heart notes of water lily, soft honeysuckle, rose and freesia come to the surface. Fresh and fruity floral fragrances will always be the ones that I go for, and when combined with base notes of cedarwood, musk and woody notes, it makes it all the more attractive.
As with all the Marc Jacobs fragrances, the flacon is once again a talking point. With the signature curved bottle of Eau So Fresh being ever present, and the floral lid that has become synonymous with the Daisy collection, the colours have been updated to reflect the Blush of the fragrance and each daisy is presented in shades of blush pink. Eau So Fresh also happens to be one of the most cost effective bottles from Daisy, as unlike the others, it is presented in a 75ml bottle. To distinguish Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh Blush from the other editions, the exterior packaging is white with blush daisy accents.
Whether I’m a sucker for the bottle or because I have quite a large collection of the limited edition bottles, I’m so glad that I took the chance to revisit Blush as it’s a very pretty fragrance. It has also brought the thought of how other fragrances compare depending on the weather. A perfect autumn blend with the freshness of lazy summer days. Simply beautiful.
