I think considering that I have been to an airport four times in the last two weeks and this was my only duty free purchase is pretty good! Although saying that it was partly because after this there wasn’t much money left in my purse for anymore shopping! I’ve been needing a new perfume for a while now. I think about 2/3 years ago for my birthday and then Christmas I got three perfumes. They were a Hollister one, a Ghost one and Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I loved the Ghost one and that became my everyday perfume so when it started to get very low I was gutted to find out that it had been discontinued. Daisy was my favourite and I tried to save it for evenings and special occasions but even so I probably have about 5 uses left of that one too.
I tried to go perfume shopping several times but I really hated it. I had no idea what I was looking for or what would suit me and there is so much choice out there that I jsut felt overwhelmed. And after about 15 minutes of smelling loads of different perfumes I started to get a bit of a headache and all the smells started blending into one and I couldn’t tell the difference anyway!
I had heard that Marc Jacobs was bring out a new Daisy perfume and I couldn’t wait to give it a sniff. So as soon as I saw it in duty free on my way to Spain I smelt it and new that it was the one, so I grabbed it and the rest is history.
Firstly I think that the perfume bottle is the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen. For me the look of the perfume is just as important as the smell. If I’m going to have my perfume on display in my bedroom then I need to love it. If I were to try and describe the smell then I would say that it is light, fresh and floral. It’s just a really feminine smell that isn’t too overpowering or offensive.
I’m so happy with this purchase and even more happy that I found it in duty free because this doesn’t actually come out until August! So if you are in the market for a new perfume and this sounds like your kind of scent then I would definitely recommend checking this one out. I picked this 100ml bottle up for £56 at duty free so it may be slightly more expensive elsewhere.
