Marc Jacobs "Daisy"

Is this not one of the most beautiful bottles you say!! I've been after something from the maestro that is Mr Marc Jacobs for ages.  I've been drooling over his makeup collection but haven't got any of it as yet but as I don't own many perfumes I would give this one a whirl.  Yes I really like pretty things and I was instantly drawn to this bottle.  It's a different bottle to the original Daisy this one is a higher concentration.  Quite like the sound of that.

So I ordered the perfume from currently on sale reduced from £54.00 to £45.90 so I figured it would be a good time to get it.  Ordering from Escential is easy and two days after I had paid for it the postman was at the door.  Well wrapped and no wasteful packaging and there was my perfume, which came in quite a pretty gold box.

So what does Daisy smell like well the notes are:: top wild strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit.  Heart: violet, jasmine, and gardenia, base: vanilla, musks and white woods.

So once sprayed on you can immediately smell the strawberry and violet and once the perfume drys out you can smell the violet coming through.  The best way I can describe the smell in my own words which is only my thoughts and bearing in mind perfume smells different on everyone.  To me the smell reminds me a bit of a musky Palma violet, these are the retro purple sweets that used to be around a long time ago, but they do sell them in the supermarket.

So is it nice yes it is, the smell is a nice day perfume I would say very light and pretty, and perfect for a gift.  Or a gift for yourself.  Also forgot to mention when you order from they are kind enough to send you a sample of something.  Not that I order from them for this, I just think its a nice little touch.  I had a sample of Nuxe body cream and lets just say samples are dangerous as now I love this.

I'm loving this and I will say its looking gorgeous on my chest of drawers.

Thanks for reading
