You really got to hand it to Marc Jacobs. First, he makes amazing clothes, and his fragrances – and their gorgeous bottles – are so iconic. His fragrances are a bit different to his clothes, though – usually very sweet, innocent and fresh, and Daisy Eau So Fresh (don’t you love the name?!) is no different.
I was invited to the media launch of the fragrance a few weeks ago at Sentosa Cove (for those who don’t live in Singapore, Sentosa Cove is like the ‘elite’ area to live in, houses are millions upon millions of dollars there and it’s on the very exclusive Sentosa Island). So I have to admit, I was curious to see what the fuss is about Sentosa Cove. (And no offense, but it’s not my style – it’s too secluded, I’m a city girl!) Nevertheless, the event was held at a cozy cafe and we were treated to finger food (to which I ate, oh I don’t know, 30 helpings?!), special-blended mocktails for the event, and express manicures. It was a lovely afternoon, despite driving around like an idiot for over an hour, completely lost!
I was later given a complimentary bottle to try the fragrance out, though I already knew I liked the fragrance from the event! It is fresh – oh sorry, EAU SO FRESH – and light and feminine. I don’t normally like feminine scents but this… is feminine get grunge? You know Marc Jacobs! The ad campaign ‘describes’, if you will, the scent perfectly – pretty daises in a field in the middle of the day. Young, youthful, fresh and innocent. My only disappointment with it is that the scent has no staying power – two hours and the scent is long gone – so this tip to make fragrances last longer is necessary. Still, I really enjoy this scent and I know this is completely superficial, but a lot of the reason is because the bottle is amazing – it looks like a piece of art!
Have you tried Daisy Eau So Fresh yet? What did you think of it? I think I’ll also have to try out the original, and I’m still waiting to get my hands on Lola! (I have a bottle of it in London with my BFF, and I’m eagerly waiting to get my hands on it!)
