Choosing a fragrance for yourself can be a tricky thing sometimes, and many of us choose to stick with a brand we know and trust. I am definitely one of those people, affirming my faith in Marc Jacobs and I'm never disappointed. In time for Christmas, Fragrance Direct sent me over the Marc Jacobs Gold Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray* (100ml) which is currently on offer, discounted from £80 down to £69.99. I already own Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream which is my signature scent ever since I spritzed it in the Sephora Champs-Élysées in Paris and fell head over heels for it. The next logical step in my eyes was to try out the original Daisy perfume.
Daisy was the first of the Marc Jacobs iconic fragrances for women. It's described as fruity and floral, feminine in nature with a touch of vintage. It boasts top notes of strawberry, blood grapefruit and violet leaves, heart notes of violet pearls, gardenia and jasmine bouquet with base notes of musk, white woods and vanilla infusion. It's an easy to wear fragrance that comes in multiple sizes; 20ml for the handbag, 50ml and the size I have which is 100ml. With the traditional design being a clear bottle with white daisies on the top, this Christmas Edition bottle is completely gold which screams luxury.
Aside from the scent being absolutely beautiful in my eyes, with the exact notes I want to smell like, the actual design of the bottle is so unique. I love that once I run out of the perfume I can still display the bottle on my makeup desk as it's opaque. For me, this is a Christmas present I would jump with joy if I had received it and for someone who loves Marc Jacobs fragrances, this is a perfect present. If you like the limited edition finish, it also comes in pink and the festive colour red so there is a colour that everyone would love.
