MARC JACOBS DAISY EAU SO FRESH SUNSHINE REVIEW





Hello lovelies, happy Sunday! I hope you've all had a fab weekend. (Warning, weather related rambles inevitable). I've had a lovely chilled out Sunday with the boyfriend today as it's been a massively busy week for me, so it was nice to have a lovely long lie in and mooch around the shops. The weather's been pretty lovely too, not quite crop top and flip flop weather as yet, (though half of Essex disagrees) but definitely a lot warmer and less dreary none the less. I really do hope this weather holds up as it's my birthday in a couple of weeks and it'd be lovely to have some fab weather!

So, while in summer mode today, I decided I needed a more summery fragrance in my life and you really can't get more summery than a perfume called 'Sunshine'. I've always been in awe of all the Marc Jacobs perfume bottles whenever I wander past them in perfume departments, but for some reason, up until now, I've never really loved them. Daisy was just a bit too 'green' for me and while I loved Oh Lola in the bottle, it went super powdery and overwhelming as soon as it hit my skin. So while this gorgeous bottle immediately caught my attention (this is one lid I certainly won't be losing), I honestly didn't have high hopes for the fragrance itself. However, I tested it on those little paper sticks they have in boots (does anyone else get really stuck for where to put those once you've used them? Do you do the casual 'leave it on a random counter/ if all else fails awkwardly leave it in your bag for three months' thing? Let me know so I don't feel so alone!) and I absolutely fell in love! Trying not to get my hopes up too much, I sprayed some on my wrist so I could have a wander round the other shops to see how it settled down.

An hour or so later, I gave my wrist a sniff to see how the fragrance had settled and I loved it! It stayed super sweet and fruity/ floral so I marched right back to boots and bought it straight away! This was £48.00 for 75ml, which isn't too bad if you ask me, I've paid much more for fragrances I haven't loved nearly as much! I'm going to do my best to describe the scent/ get it off the internet and tell you if I agree because I'm really bad at describing scents. I will forever be in awe of those who can take one sniff and tell you there are top notes of jasmine, middle notes of tuberose and a musky base, I will never know. I also don't know if jasmine, tuberose and musk would even smell nice but I'm really going off on a tangent now. Focus Chloe. So, the description says 'Marc Jacobs' Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine Edition eau de toilette is a bolder and fruitier limited edition interpretation of the original Daisy fragrance. A playful, fruity, floral fragrance, it features an energetic and addictive fruity top, a breeze of airy floral petals in the heart, and a smooth, velvety base of subtle sweetness.' It feels like a bit of a cop out to say 'yeah, I agree with that', but I do. It's just a grogeous sweet, fruity floral. Fruity Floral is definitely my favourite kind of scent as it's just the right amount of sweetness without being too overpowering and sickly. 

I'm not going to try to describe it any more than that as I think the description really does say it all. It's fruity, floral and noticeable, but light at the same time, the girl in the shop actually noticed I'd already sprayed it when I went to buy it. It's super fresh and very very girly. If you get a chance, I'd definitely give this a sniff. It's limited edition so I think I'm going to have to get a backup! This is definitely my favourite perfume of the moment so I'd totally recommend it to anyone who loves a very girly scent!

Have you tried this? What's your favourite perfume for the summer months?

  3. This is so pretty! I have Daisy which I like although it's not my favourite so I'll definitely have to give this a try when I'm next in Boots! I usually leave those little paper sticks floating around in with any purchases I've made/my handbag and leave it smelling nice for a while haha! xx

    1. Gorgeous isn't it? I almost think I'd have bought it even if it didn't smell so fab just because of the bottle!! They're so awkward haha I found a ton last time I cleared out my bag, but never thought of it that way, I suppose my bag probably did smell lovely ha! xx

  5. I have been into countless of stores in the past month or so and have smelt this one along with the smaller one that smells slightly more stronger and less sweet. I like both limited edition marc jacobs "sunshine" perfumes. I will have to say I do love my Daisy Eau so fresh as it is definitely "springy". I really want this "sunshine" scent though!
    Great post
