I’ve said this before, but I’m not much of a perfume gal and usually find myself wearing body sprays. They last all day on me, and I am pretty specific about scents. I like vanilla, coconut, or sweet fruit (citrus, etc.) scents. I don’t like heavy florals or anything too musky. I am extremely fussy about actual perfumes compared to body sprays.
One day while browsing in Sephora, I saw a beautiful display of some new summer fragrances, looking all beachy and cute, so of course I had to smell all of them! Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine ($78) really stood out to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it after I went home. Naturally, since this is limited edition (doesn’t that figure?), I fell for this scent due to the fruity top notes and overall light and fresh style, and decided to invest in it since a fancy perfume is a rare treat.
- Top Notes: Strawberry, Apple Blossom, Pink Grapefruit
Mid Notes: Jasmine Petals, Day Lily, Rose
Base Notes: Violet Leaf, White Oak Moss, Amber Wood
Frankly, I know little about fragrance composition; however, I’m hoping to remedy that by reading some books on the subject so I can write about them better! (For awesome fragrance reviews, visit Cute and Mundane!)The fruity notes stood out to me with this fragrance and it isn’t overly floral; not cloying in any way.
This product comes with 2.5 ounces and is housed in a glass jar with a gorgeous cap of vibrant, neon flowers. One thing I have to note is that it doesn’t say “sunshine” anywhere on the bottle; however, the box it is housed in (when you buy it) does say “sunshine” on it. I thought that was kind of strange and actually double-checked to make sure I purchased the right thing.
I would definitely recommend Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine for someone who likes a very light fruity scent that is still fresh. This makes me want to run through a field with my hair blowing in the wind! 🙂
