This perfume from Marc Jacobs is a really nice one, especially for summer, because it is light and fruity without being too overpowering.
I'm not normally one for seeking out new fragrances, particularly as I have a few favourites that I have worn for a number of years, namely Estee Lauder's Beautiful, which is my all time favourite and Calvin Klein's Beauty. However, earlier this year my husband decided to treat me to a 75 ml bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, which is an eau de toilette, with this review discussing my thoughts.
Whilst I had previously been aware of the original Daisy fragrance with its beautiful bottle, I was totally oblivious to Eau So Fresh, which was launched in 2011. Similar to that of Daisy, Eau So Fresh is very feminine in appearance and is presented in a modern style clear glass bottle adorned with a stunning bouquet of colourful daisies. It was only when I carried out a little research on the fragrance that I discovered that there are two different bottles; one of which carries lemon and white coloured daisies with the other displaying cerise, green and orange daisies, which is the bottle I own.
It is evident that careful consideration has been considered in the bottle's appearance, as it is absolutely stunning and would no doubt appeal to the majority of women. Whilst some consumers may be tempted to place the bottle on display, this is a big mistake, particularly as perfumes should not be exposed to heat or direct sunlight. As a result, you will find the aroma will quickly change rendering the perfume useless, so it's always best to store fragrance bottles in a cool and dark place, such as a dressing table drawer.
I generally tend to opt for eau de perfumes, particularly as they contain between 7% - 15% of oil concentrates, which result in a longer lasting aroma as opposed to the 1% - 6% found in eau de toilettes. However, my initial sniff of the fragrance led me to believe that Daisy Eau So Fresh would offer superb longevity due to its considerably intense aroma.
I always spray fragrances on my pulse points, such as the inside of my wrists, as the blood vessels in these areas are closer to the skin's surface and as a result, the fragrance is heated and subsequently released much quicker than on any other area of the body. In addition, a spray behind each of the knees will enable the fragrance to travel upwards as you walk. The opening notes of Daisy Eau So Fresh are fresh and crisp where we are greeted with grapefruit, raspberry, green leaves and pear. You would believe that this fruity ensemble would be a little sharp, but this is not the case, as they are uplifting and very refreshing.
Approximately fifteen minutes later, the top notes are accompanied with a delightful combination of heart notes, which consist of violet, wild rose, jasmine petals, apple blossom and lychee. This is when the fragrance really becomes alive, as their delightful floral tones work in perfect harmony with the fruits and subsequently, produce a very favourite aroma without being cloying or overly floral. All of the fragrances that I regularly wear contain musk and I was pleased to witness its aroma in the base notes of Daisy in addition to cedarwood and plum; all of which add an element of mystery and sensuality. The cedarwood offers an element of woodiness to the fragrance and reminds me of the delightful tones of sandalwood.
It is the delightful combination of musk, cedarwood and jasmine petals that tend to take the forefront in Daisy Eau De Fresh; all of which product a very favourable scent deeming this eau de toilette to have become a real favourite of mine. The longevity surprised me, as I had anticipated it to last for only a few hours, which is generally the case with an eau de toilette. However, I was still able to witness the aroma some six hours later, which clearly evidences the overall quality of this fragrance. Despite the musky aroma, I feel that this fragrance would be well suited to women of all ages.
A 75ml bottle of Marc Jacobs Eau De Fresh retails at £48 for a 75ml bottle, which I consider to be excellent value for money especially when I pay £33 for a 30 ml bottle for Estee Lauder Beautiful Eau De Parfum. You can also purchase a 125 ml bottle for £62 or a 20ml purse spray for £29.50.
I can award nothing less than five stars to this stunning eau de toilette, which receives a high recommendation from me.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I received this as a Christmas present as part of a 3 piece gift set after trying testers and not so subtly hinting to my other half that I would like some! The set contains a 75ml Eau de Toilette spray, a 75ml Radiant Body Lotion and 75ml Bubbly Shower Gel.
The set was from Boots but I think they only do it at Christmas as they do not seem to have it now, the Eau de Toilette is available on its own, currently for £48. I didn't particularly want the other products but the gift set was the same price as just the Eau de Toilette so it would have been rude not to buy it!
The gift box is far too beautiful to throw away and I have kept it to use for storage, it is a shiny pale pink with yellow and white daisies on it.
The body lotion and shower gel come in pretty little pink tubes with the same daisy patterns on and although they help you to layer your fragrance and may make it last longer, they are not anything special in terms of richness and deep moisturising, which is why I would normally not bother with them as I prefer performance over fragrance on this type of product.
The Eau de Toilette is in an extremely attractive bottle that really has to be displayed - no hiding in a dark drawer for this beauty - it has an unusual shape; elegant, yet chunky enough to be sturdy and a bunch of plastic daisies on the lid, in pink, white and (one) yellow. These could have looked tacky if they weren't so tastefully designed but they look gorgeous. I will have a dilemma of what to do with it when the perfume is finished as I won't be able to throw it out - can anyone think of a use for it?
The fragrance, as the name implies, is a fresher, lighter version of the original Daisy, it is a lovely soft, floral scent with a very slight hint of musk, which I love. I wear it as a daytime perfume as I don't think it is strong enough for evening use, but I only use it once in the morning and it lingers very nicely all day, especially on my clothes.
I have already used and reviewed the original Daisy eau de toilette and eau de parfum fragrances. This is an adapted version of the original eau de toilette called Daisy So Fresh.
It comes in a fairly similar bottle to the original Daisy, clear glass with a lid made from plastic flowers. The main difference with this one is that the liquid in this is a pink colour as opposed to amber in the original Daisy. The other difference is that the lid on this one is a mixture of pinky, yellow and white flowers with silver middles which are smaller than the original white and gold flowers on the standard Daisy fragrance. I prefer the design of this bottle as I find the flowers on the original bottle a little large and crude. This still isn't my ideal style of bottle because I like something a little more elegant and understated but it is still very pretty and girly.
The top notes in this perfume are red grapefruit, raspberry and pear which makes it a combination of the original daisy scent and the oh lola scent. Almost all of Marc Jacobs' perfume begin in this same way with a mixture of fruity scents. I find that these could be made to smell fresher than they are and I often find them a little bit too sweet and cloying.
The middle notes are a much nicer combination of wild rose, violet and apple blossom. I love these powdery florals and the hint of apple blossom is just stunning because it cuts through the sweetness with a lovely sharp, tangy surprise. This layer is much nicer and manages to disperse the initial sweetness.
The final layer of base notes is a mixture of plum, cedarwood and musk which combine nicely. I find a lot of perfumes use vanilla as a base note a long with these more woody musky scents but actually the plum is a lovely alternative because it isn't sickly sweet and has a slight sharpness consistent with the rest of the scent.
The overall feeling is of something very fresh, heavily fruity but just a little bit sweet to begin with. I actually like this more than I thought I would and once the sweet layer goes you are left with a delicious fruity, floral fragrance which mellows into lovely sensual earthy tones.
My only slight annoyance with it is that it doesn't seem to have quite the same punch or longevity as the original Daisy. This could be down to my experience of using the eau de parfum which is a more concentrated scent and much stronger. That said, for the price it should last longer than it does.
You can pick this one up for around £50 for a 75ml bottle. This is better value than the other Marc Jacobs scents and though I prefer the smell I think you pay less because the quality isn't as good. Such a shame because I prefer the bottle.
Being a fan of the original Marc Jacobs Daisy scent, I was keen to try the new Daisy 'eau so fresh' when it was launched. This is meant to be the more 'fun' version of the original Daisy. I was lucky enough to receive this as a birthday present from my other half after some careful hinting.
This comes in a clear glass bottle (see DooYoo picture above). The bottle is well weighted at the bottom and is sturdy. It stands up easily and does not topple over. The Marc Jacobs logo and the name of the perfume are printed on the front of the bottle in gold writing. The lid of the bottle has yellow and white flowers on it. I find that the lid comes off this perfume easily, especially when being transported for example in a handbag or a suitcase. For this reason I do not often travel with this perfume. The bottle is really unique and pretty and looks great sitting on your dressing table.
The 75ml perfume currently costs £40.80 on Amazon or £48.00 in Boots. It is available in 75ml and 125ml size bottles.
The perfume is described as a fruity, floral scent. Upon spraying I find that the main scent is floral. It is a fairly light scent and isn't too overpowering. The perfume contains notes of natural raspberry, grapefruit, pear, violet, wild rose, apple blossom, musks, cedarwood and plum. I however, like most people I'm sure, cannot distinguish between these smells when I spray the perfume. To me it is a floral and slightly fruity smell.
As the scent is quite light, I find it is best for daytime wear and certainly isn't something I would wear for an evening out. I do find that the staying power of this perfume isn't great, and I would tend to reapply it during the day when I am at home, as because I have mentioned above it isn't great being transported in handbags due to the lid falling off.
I would describe this perfume as more of a youthful scent and is probably more suited to younger people, whereas the original Daisy may appeal to all ages.
I am glad I tried this perfume and I do really like the smell, but due to the lack of staying power and the lid constantly falling off, I am deducting a star.
Thanks for reading and I hope you found my review useful.
I have a favourite perfume which I will wear most days but I decided I wanted to save it for special occasions and find something more everyday to wear which wasn't as heavy. Daisy Eau So Fresh is the perfect perfume for this!
I prefer it to the original Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume, although that's just my personal taste.
The smell is very delicate and light, not very floral although I like this but maybe some people would be disappointed as from the name you would except something more floral. It has slight musky undertones but these aren't too overpowering and don't take away from the delicate scent. I was surprised that over the day I could almost smell fruity notes but these were very pleasant.
As for staying power, I spray 2-3 sprays in the morning onto my clothes rather than skin and I can still smell it by the afternoon although perhaps could do with a top up half way through the day.
I've carried this bottle in my bag a few times and it seems to get a little leaky around the top - completely my own fault but just as a warning to others, you probably want to avoid doing that!
The bottle is very pretty with the flowers on the lid and definitely looks very pretty which would make it perfect for a present.
find choosing a new perfume a bit of chore. I go in, look bemusedly at the vast array in front of me, smell a couple, and invariably end up leaving with a headache and no idea which one I liked with a very confused nose. For this reason I tend to stick to my old favourites that I have been using for the last few years.
I was passing through Boots with the aim of picking up a bargain with my No. 7 voucher, when a bottle caught my eye. Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh comes in a beautiful rectangular bottle but with rounded edges so looks nice and smooth, but it was the lid that drew me to it! The circular lid has 6 large different coloured plastic daisy's stuck onto it, effectively covering the whole of the lid with the petals.
I decided to try some, hoping that it lived up to my expectations after seeing the bottle, and it didn't disappoint. I am not a big fan of heavy smells that linger for a long time in the room after you have sprayed them, and this is certainly not one of those. It is a beautiful light fragrance which is not too overpowering, perfect for the day time, especially in the summer. It is flowery, sweet- not too sweet to be sickly - and fresh - a bit like a summer meadow in a bottle! I have never tried a Marc Jacobs perfume before but I fell in love with this one. I have had several friends ask me what perfume I am wearing as they have liked it too, which is always a good sign!
The only negative is that within a couple of hours, its gone so needs reapplying, but I guess that's part and parcel of a nice light fragrance.
A 75ml bottle costs £48.00, and there is a purse sized version available too!
I would definitely recommend and have given 4 stars.
I was bought this fragrance as a present for my wedding. My mother gave me the perfume as my wedding scent so I must admit whenever I smell the fragrance I have very happy memories.
I like fresh, light fragrances and must admit that daisy ticked all these boxes for me. The scent is light with a floral fragrance but it is not overpowering (I am not a fan of very strong scents). The perfume is however long lasting and I find that when I put it on in the morning I am still able to smell the scent at the end of the day which is always a huge positive. When I am wearing the scent I always seem to have compliments on it's fragrance and this is by both males and females.
I would definitely recommend daisy to a friend as it is light and has a long lasting beautiful scent which is not overpowering and seems to be enjoyed by a wide range of people. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
I love the original Daisy by marc jocobs as well as his Lola fragrance so I was really pleased to receive a bottle of Daisy Eau So Fresh for my birthday. To be honest to begin with I thought the bottle I received was the original Daisy as they are extremely similar to each other. They both have the gorgeous bottles with the flowers on the lid and the only way to really tell them apart is that the flowers are smaller and different colours. The colour of the perfume is also pink as opposed to an amber colour but at first glance it would be easy enough to confuse them.
The perfume contains notes of ruby red grapefruit, raspberry, green leaves and pear and it is supposed to be a lighter fresher version of the original. It is definately a lighter fragrance than the original one and although it starts with the same floral notes it lacks the intensity and originlity of the original. I found it hard to pick out any one scent with this and could only smell a sort of generic flower and fruit smell.
It is nice enough and I enjoyed wearing it but there is something ever so slightly common about this one. Whereas the original is so distinctive the fresh smells like loads of other floral perfumes that are around at the minute.
It also doesn't last very long and the lovely sweet flowery fragrance that you get when you first spray it disappears after about an hour and I struggle to even smell it on my wrist.
Because it is so light it also meant that I sprayed loads on myself to compensate and try and make it a bit more intense which meant I went through my bottle quicker than I usually do. The main selling point for this perfume is the bottle and that is just stunning and it is something that I cannot fault its just a shame that the perfume doesn't match its originality and design.
I think that it is much more a daytime fragrance and due to its sweet and floral fragrance I think it would be more suited to a younger person and because of the gorgeous bottle I think teenage girls will absolutely love this.
Daisy eau fresh isn't cheap and a 75ml bottle will set you back nearly £50 which for me is to expensive for something that smells similar to something that I can buy from a highstreet clothing store.
I have always been a huge Marc Jacobs fan and quite liked Daisy so when I saw this eau so fresh version was launched, I was very interested in trying it. My sister had bought this for me as a surprise so I was delighted as it'd give me a chance to try it. I had managed to spray it in the shop before so I knew I quite liked it but nothing gives you a real chance to try it than actually owning it. By the name, I had assumed it would be very summery, fresh and clean smelling and it looked neutral with the bottle design as well so seemed very unique.
This comes in a cylinder shaped glass bottle that is clear and the Daisy type and Marc Jacobs logo are on the front of this. The lid has yellow and white flowers on the top to make it look a bit different and a bit more special than the other bottles. I don't really like the flowers on the top though as I feel they look quite cheap and I have seen this idea done more sophisticated than this, even his Lola scent had a nicer bottle. However, don't let that put you off as the scent is what you pay for.
EAU SO FRESH
The perfume is very clear looking and very natural but on spraying it, it is nice and light and definitely very refreshing. The scent is mainly floral from what I always pick up on when spraying it first, however as the scent seems to settle into the skin it seems to bring out a few fruitier notes which were not at first present. It is almost quite musky the more you breathe it in and has a soapy like scent also but it is a very nice fragrance and perfect for the current season.
This perfume is mainly deemed as a floral and fruity scent which is what I had said. The top notes of this scent are raspberry, grapefruit and pear and it has heart notes of wild rose, violet and apple blossom. So, as can be seen from these layers that it is very heavy on fruity notes but there are a few florals that add to it. Lastly, it has base notes of plum, cedarwood and musk and so a very fresh, fruity scent that has some unusual but refreshing notes that offer something unique.
This scent definitely reminds me of soap so a clean scent and it is probably adaptable for all ages as it is not too youthful or mature but a neutral balance. It is definitely a daytime scent as at night time it won't give the true essence of evening wear but in the daytime it will adapt correctly. It is not too heavy a scent either so a good few sprays should be just enough to notice this where you can still smell it on you without it being too overpowering. The fragrance lasts the whole day whenever I wear it and I don't really have to spray it a lot.
This is a great fragrance if you are looking for a new summer scent and are a Marc Jacobs fan. It is easy to wear and a really nice scent, not my favourite at the minute but I do use it a lot in the daytime as it is refreshing to wear and doesn't need an occasion. This is worth giving a try if you are passing by a department store and if you liked Daisy then you may want to see what the new take on it is like.
This fragrance can be purchased on the Perfume Shop's website and stores. The 20ml purse spray and refill cost £28.50, the 75ml EDT costs £47.50 and the 125ml EDT is £61.50. There is also a body lotion 150ml for £21.50. It isn't the cheapest and it isn't the most expensive but it will last you.
