The Marc Jacobs Daisy collection has been charming us for more than a decade. As the new Daisy Eau So Intense launches, here’s a guide to picking your perfect Daisy …
In March, we’re always uplifted by the arrival of new-season fashion, together with longer, brighter days – and never more so than this year. This spring we’re longing for sunshine, style, fresh blooms and sweetness. And as we get ready to celebrate our nearest and dearest with Mother’s Day on March 14, we’ve found that the Marc Jacobs Daisy collection of scents ticks every box as a gift for your loved one.
The original Marc Jacobs Daisy, a floral woody musk created by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, launched back in 2007. And since then the collection has blossomed to include a scent to suit every taste, from light fresh airy eaux, such as Daisy eau de toilette and Daisy Eau So Fresh, to richer lingering perfumes. The very latest arrival, Daisy Eau So Intense, just arrived in stores, is a deeper interpretation of the original that celebrates sunshine, warmth and vitality.
Many people have found scent to be more important than ever during the past year – it can comfort, reassure and lift us. And as we look for some much-needed golden rays in our life, the Daisy family hits all the right notes, from the highly collectable bottles to the sunny, bright and optimistic scents inside.
So which one is right for your mother? Here’s how to pick your perfect Daisy …
1 VIBRANT AND SPARKLING
The brand-new Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Intense captures the feeling of a magical sunset as it turns the daisy fields golden. This eau de parfum, again created by world-renowned Alberto Morillas, captures the feeling of basking in a sunset’s golden glow. It’s vibrant, with sparkling bursts of strawberry and pear revealing a sweet honey and elegant rosebud heart. And then there’s a lingering trail of soft vanilla that’s hard to resist. It’s rich and lasting, yet sparkling with life, thanks to the bright bursts of fruit and crisp, green moss. We’re coveting the sophisticated, daisy-topped golden bottle. Available now at Brown Thomas, Arnotts and selected pharmacies nationwide, from €68.
2 ROMANTIC AND WARM
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette is charmingly simple, with its juicy, succulent wild berries and soft white violets. At the heart, velvety jasmine warms to a dreamy dry-down of sensual sandalwood that’s romantic and lingering. Whimsical white daisies on its cap give the iconic Daisy bottle a retro twist. From €57.
3 SOPHISTICATED AND SPARKLING
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sophisticated but not too serious, Daisy Eau So Fresh is an eau de toilette that sparkles with sunny, vibrant energy. It’s a spirited take on the original Daisy, with a bright elegance and whimsical charm. Top notes of raspberry and grapefruit sparkle on the skin like sunshine, deepening into a sensuous heart of wild rose, warm plum and cedarwood. Feminine, sweet and unpredictable, this is an enticing choice, in its crystal-clear bottle topped with playful daisies and a pop of neon yellow. From €56.
4 RADIANT AND GLOWING
Marc Jacobs Daisy Love is a gourmand radiant fragrance that opens with a vibrant burst of sweet cloudberries. Delicate daisy tree petals mingle with sparkling cashmere musks and driftwood to create a delicious and memorable gourmand twist. Addictive and irresistible, Daisy Love fills the air with a contagious love of life and a warm glow. From €59.
5 SOFT YET STRONG
Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfect is a playful, modern and bright eau de parfum, a comforting floral with a twist: its frivolous bottle is the epitome of charm and playfulness, with Marc Jacobs’ inimitable sense of originality and fun. Think sharp fruit notes of rhubarb along with bright daffodil and a heart of creamy almond. This is one for a true original, with an ageless sense of fun and joie de vivre. From €85.
