Review: Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight & Daisy Eau so Fresh Delight

Last week, the UK erupted with sunshine and cheerful exclaims that Spring may indeed, finally be here! And boy, are we ready for it.

 

To accompany such bright weather and bouncy moods, we need a fragrance equally as effervescent. We suggest two of the juiciest, happiest limited editions we’ve ever encountered. The Delight Editions.

 

Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight

A charming floral scent with vivid flashes of colour, Daisy Delight opens with crisp apple, quince flower and freesia. The heart blooms with notes of gardenia, peony and iris before closing with cedar, sandalwood and musks in the base.

 

Where the original Daisy fragrance is more “strawberries and cream”, Daisy Delight is lighter, fresher… blue-er. The emphasis here is on crisp, airy freshness. Think of lazing in the garden, gazing up at clear skies in summer.

 

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh Delight

Fruity, through and through, Daisy Eau so Fresh Delight is almost thirst quenching. Bursting with blood orange, pink pepper and white tea in the top notes, the heart develops into raspberry, the tropical Tiare flower and violet. Bubbling away in the base are apricot, musk and amber.

 

I personally have quite the weakness for citrus fragrances. The most recent addition to my scent wardrobe was Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, a spritzy mix of grapefruit, bergamot, cassis and patchouli. This obsession with all things sour leads me to favour the Eau so Fresh of the pair, which also features the beautifully soft sweetness of violet more prominently than the original.

 

Cheerful, playful and easy to wear, these limited editions will delight you all summer. What’s more, they’ll look as good on your dressing table as they make you feel.
