Daisy is a perfume and one of the modern perfume classics, if we can classify it as such, because, while not overly innovative, it is undoubtedly one of the most popular designer perfumes of today, and also of the Marc Jacobs brand. At the time when it was created, some 12 years ago, in 2007, he was the perfect embodiment and representative of Marc’s fashion aspirations: white dresses, simple but interesting cut-outs, created for a beautiful day and nature photography, picking field flowers and picnics in the sunny spring day.


Like many Marc Jacobs perfumes, Daisy seems to be promising, at least judging by the design of the bottle, which in most cases suggests that there is something inside that will intrigue the imagination and satisfy curiosity. But, as per some unwritten rule, all Marc Jacobs perfumes have something special, beautiful, and pleasant, but at the same time, they don’t possess some x-factor, something that will cause a wow effect and knock us off our feet.

Marc Jacobs perfumes are like sex without an orgasm. Are they good? Yes. Can they be much better? Everyone older than 18 will know the answer to that question…

Unlike other interesting but unfinished Marc Jacobs perfumes like Bang, Cucumber Splash, Decadence, and Men, Daisy perfume can be forgiven, because the whole concept and idea around it is the age of youth, innocence, purity, and untaintedness by the adult world. Freshness, simplicity, and transparency are its synonyms, and accordingly, Daisy is the perfect gift for someone just entering the world of perfume and adults.


The perfume composition of Daisy perfume is woody floral musk, and while many say it is like Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana, I notice mild similarity only in the drydown of the perfume, when the woody notes begin to blend with the fresher middle and upper notes. In the case of Light Blue, it’s the sea, summer citrus notes. In Daisy spring, floral: warm, velvety, honey jasmine rounded off by the crisp, gentle scent of elegant violets and unpretentious gardenia. If you are looking for a soft and beautiful, decent perfume, perfect for all daytime occasions, that will not endanger your colleagues when you walk surrounded by the fragrant cloud into the office or gift to someone whose fragrant taste you do not know enough, Daisy is a safe and a great choice. After all, it was made by Alberto Morillas, a master of safe decisions, from 2000 onwards. It’s not a card that I think people should play when it comes to perfumes, but if so, let it be Daisy – a white daisy that, as the arrival of spring, it hints and promises a lot of exciting things that were hidden in us, humans, during the long winter and thick, snow cover.
