"Vibrant, charming, whimsical Daisy Eau So Fresh is the spirited new version of the original Daisy. It transports you to a place that is happy and sunny"
This evening let''s check out a birthday present that has been regulated to my wardrobe shelf: Daisy so Fresh is meant to be a completely different fragrance from the original Daisy, but in all honesty I''ve found it to be very similar...
A major way in which the two fragrances are similar is the way that this surprised me with its lightness. I was expecting something a bit bolder and slightly tart based on the list of scent notes; but It is just a simple, mild mix of berries, violets, powdery rose and vanilla on me; It seems very watered down thanks to the long lasting pear note. What I guess to be the ''green notes'' is a faint undertone of something that reminds me of trekking through the woods after the rain - this is the only real difference I''ve noticed between and Daisy.
I guess as this fragrance has ''fresh'' in the title I can''t really complain that it is light and watery, but I can''t detect any real changes between the top, heart and base notes - everything seems jumbled together.
Scent notes: grapefruit, green notes, raspberry, pear, jasmine, rose, violet, litchi, apple blossom, musk, virginia cedar and plum.
Aside from this edition''s close similarities with the original Daisy, my main complaint with Daisy so Fresh is the poor longevity; within three hours I had to press my wrist against my nose and could only get a faint sense of vanilla and musk.
The light, airy fragrance is ideal for the warmer weather, although I do wear mine all year round - when I remember that I have it.
Daisy so Fresh can be worn to work, weekends and would be a good choice for crowded parties, when a stronger fragrance could cause headaches and/or dizziness.
I never reviewed this before as I can''t separate any of the floral notes out - aside from the listed violet and rose, so it''s a pretty boring review.
For the short time it lasts Daisy so Fresh is clean, airy and very feminine, but one problem I had was boredom. Light fruit and vanilla is nothing new, and the notes were so mild they didn''t capture any attention. It was a gift, so I wore it and didn''t dislike it, but I''d never pay money for this - it wears like a body spray.

I am a big fan of light and fresh perfumes so I thought that one that actually had fresh in the name would be perfect for me and it turns out that I was right because I really like this latest perfume from Marc Jacobs. This perfume from Marc Jacobs is a really nice one, especially for summer, because it is light and fruity without being too overpowering. I am a big fan of fresh and light fragrances, which is exactly what this is. If you like things like Cool Water by Davidoff and L'Eau D'Issey by Issey Miyake, I imagine that you will also like this one. It has top notes of citrus fruits although it has flowery bottom notes, which stop you from smelling like a fruit cocktail when you have it on. I have found that it lasts well in that I can still smell it on myself at the end of the day if I have sprayed it in the morning. Having said that, it is not one of those fragrances that just hangs around because it is far too strong. It is a perfect fragrance for summer, especially during the day, although it is strong enough that it is suitable for evening wear too. The bottle, as with all Marc Jacobs fragrances, has a collectible lid. This ions has pink and white daisies on and is really pretty. the only bad thing I have to say about this fragrance is that it is not cheap. Costing upwards of fifty pounds for the seventy five ml bottle that I have, it would probably be worth seeking it out in the duty free shop at the airport if you are going on holiday soon! I do think it is pretty good value for money though, nonetheless, because it has got staying power, you don't need much of it, it comes in a funky bottle and the smell is really nice. Recommended.
I have quite a few perfumes in my cupboard: the nineties classics like J'adore (Dior) and Amarige (Givenchy) which are always the ones I fall back on for a night out. There are of course others like Florabotanica Balenciaga which are very aromatic and depend on the mood, but 'Daisy Eau so Fresh' by Marc Jacobs is the only perfume I have found within the last few years that I can wear every single day without getting sick of it!
Of course this depends on personal taste and before buying I would recommend spraying a sample of it from somewhere, but this is DEFINITELY one to consider if you're looking for a new perfume, because it smells beautiful. I find one or two squirts is normally sufficient for the day and so is quite cost-effective. Of all Marc Jacobs perfume, this flowery scent (I'm told wild raspberry, rose and plum, but let's be honest who really knows?) is subtle but so gorgeous.
It's popular for a reason but honestly perfume smells so different on every woman that you must not rule this out. It would also make a perfect gift for someone.
Whilst it's difficult to decide whether to buy a perfume online if you haven't smelled it, of all the perfumes out there, Daisy eau so fresh should be in your top choices.
