Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Helsinki, 14 degrees



I miss your fragrance, sometimes I miss it this much that I can clearly smell you in the air.

It is that time of year again when I've been looking for my new spring fragrance, scent and/or perfume. A girl without her own signature scent is a lost soul if you ask me. Earlier I've loved perfumes like Dior's J'adore and Miss Dior, even Lancôme's La vie est belle and Elie Saab's Le Parfum Intense, but this spring I wanted to find something new. And at my first try, I knew I had found what I was looking for.

On taas se aika vuodesta kun olen etsimässä uutta kevättuoksua itselleni. Mielestäni nainen ilman omaa tuoksua on jotain vailla. Aikaisemmin olen käyttänyt tuoksuja kuten Diorin J'adore ja Miss Dior, sekä Lancômen La vie est belle ja Elie Saabin Le Parfum Intense, mutta nyt halusin löytää täysin uuden tuoksun. Ja ensi yrityksellä onnistuin löytämään tuoksun, josta pidin heti.

"Fresh and feminine, Marc Jacob's Daisy is a playful bright and alluring scent. Daisy captivates with the luscious freshness of wild strawberry, then blooms with the modern vintage edge of velvety violet petals and finishes with a luminous blend of gardenia and jasmine. The white accords of birch and cedarwood add intensity."

"Naisellinen, mutta leikittelevä Marc Jacobsin Daisy-tuoksu on kuin lumoava kukkakimppu, ihastuttavan raikas ja pehmeä. Tuoksu, joka tuo hymyn kasvoillesi. Säteilevä alkutuoksu sisältää mansikkaa ja verigreippiä. Optimistinen sydäntuoksu muodostuu jasmiinista ja orvokin lehdistä. Hienostuneen, leikittelevän jälkituoksun muodostavat vaaleat puut, myski ja vanilja."

I even love the bottle design that features a luxurious block of weighted and clear glass. It's topped with a playful scattering of daisies that appear to bloom from the rounded gold cap. How sweet! 

Mielestäni tämän tuoksun pullo on myös upea koska sitä koristaa kolme kaunista päivänkakkaraa!

Top Notes: strawberry, violet leaves
Mid Notes: violet petals, jasmine bouquet
Base Notes: musk, vanilla infusion

Alkutuoksu: mansikka, orvokin lehdet
Sydäntuoksu: orvokki, jasmiinikukat
Jälkituoksu: myski, vanilja

The name Daisy immediately reminded me of Daisy Duck and one particular good oldie episode of Donald Duck from 1945. In this fun episode Donald Duck says (in the episode at 4.10) my all time favorite line: "Daisy, it's the new me!" And that is how I feel with this new perfume!

Daisy -nimi sai minut ajattelemaan vanhaa Aku Ankka -jaksoa, jota katselin paljon lapsena. Näin tietysti koska Iines Ankka on nimeltään Daisy Duck englanniksi. Tämä jakso on vuodelta 1945, ja pidän siitä koska siinä Akulla on kerrankin ihmisen ääni, ainakin hetken verran, eikä ankan. Ihmisen äänellä Aku sanoo tässä jaksossa (4.10 minuutin kohdalla) "Daisy, it's the new me"eli vapaasti käännettynä "Iines, tämä on uusi minä". Ja siltä minusta tuntuu tämän touksun kanssa!


What is your favorite fragrance this spring? Why? What do you look for in a perfume?

Mikä on sinun suosikkituoksusi tänä keväänä? Miksi? Mitä etsit tuoksussa/hajuvedessä?

  1. I always loved the idea of having a signature scent. There is something so elegant about it! It is nice to think that if someone smells it, they will think of you, too. How romantic! I haven't smelled that Marc Jacobs perfume - but I keep hearing great things about it. The bottle is beautiful, too! Definitely feels like spring.

  7. I remember that episode and it's really so sweet! Daisy has such a beautiful bottle and a great scent! It does bring the idea of spring, I think you chose it so well! I think it's a very nice and memorable scent! A friend of mine wore it and I asked her "wow, this is great, what's the name of your perfume?" I am sure many will ask you, as well!

  8. I've had Daisy since 2012! and now it's finally almost finished. I think maybe it's not strong enough for me but it's still a very lovely scent. but yesterday I received a new perfume! Miss Giordani Eau de Parfum from Oriflame. I fell in love with it when I first sniffed it from the page of their catalogue and knew I had to get it! we'll see how our relationship evolves :P
