So I don’t think that it’s a stretch to say that Marc Jacobs creates possibly the most lust-worthy bottles of perfume. From his Daisy debut in 2007, the packaging alone has made his perfumes dressing table must-haves. The newest release from the Daisy stable of fragrances is Daisy Dream Forever, a new take on last year’s Daisy Dream which mixes fruits and blonde woods into a fragrance which is pretty much magical.
As you can probably tell, I’m more than a little enamoured with the packaging for Daisy Dream Forever. It’s a joy to look at and a joy to use, and I just love how iconic Marc Jacobs’ packaging has become in a rather saturated fragrance market. The bottle is adorned with blue rubber daisies, and it’s just so pretty. It really does make me want to reach for the perfume every morning
Although the name ‘Daisy Dream Forever’ might sound like it’s prime for Spring and Summer, it’s been released at the most perfect time, as it’s a real transition scent. The mix of fruity and light woody notes creates a fragrance which is just perfect if you’re looking for something a little richer than your summer go-to. Happily, it’s one of those fragrances which everyone wants to know what you’re wearing!
At first spray, the juicy top notes of Pear, Blackberry and Grapefruit create a gorgeously juicy first impression. It smells almost edible at first, and then, as the scent matures, the heart notes of Jasmine, Lychee, Blue Wisteria become more noticeable. This mix of florals give the perfume a really great clean, almost aquatic feel, which is super refreshing to wear. At the base, there are notes of White Wood, Musk, and Coconut Water. It’s this base which really deepens Daisy Dream Forever, really setting it apart from it’s predecessors.
The perfume skews slightly sweet, but it’s really easy to wear, and the Musks and White Woods really keeps it feeling grown up and sophisticated. The fact that it’s an Eau de Parfum is also great for the longevity of the perfume – I’ve been applying it every morning, and I can still catch whiffs of it well into the afternoon. I love giving myself a little top-up mid-afternoon though, it’s such a pretty, refreshing scent that really perks me up, and keeps me going well into the evening
