Daisy Sorbet £51.50 at The Perfume Shop*
Hi lovelies! Recently I was given the opportunity from the lovely people at The Perfume Shop to review a couple of new Summer fragrances and of course, I absolutely jumped at the chance! The first of the two fragrances I'm going to show you all is the stunning Marc Jacobs Daisy Sorbet Edition. Despite not being a huge fan of the original Daisy, I loved their Sunshine Edition a couple of years ago and was devastated when my bottle ran out and I realised it was limited edition (I didn't know the did limited edition versions at the time!) and last year when Daisy Delight came out, I liked it, but it wasn't anything like my beloved Daisy Sunshine, so I had high hopes for this one!
Of course, it's not the same as Daisy Sunshine, as the wouldn't re-release a scent, but it has a similar 'fruit floral' vibe and I love it. The scent description is as follows, A succulent blend of sheer florals with a hint of fruit, Daisy Marc Jacobs Sorbet Edition is lush and playfully fresh. The fragrance opens with a juicy blend of pear and passion fruit, as crisp jasmine brightens the floral muguet. Woody notes leave a warm dry down on the skin. Top Notes of Pink Grapefruit, Pear, Passion Fruit, Heart Notes of Wisteria, Jasmine Petals, Muguet, and Base Notes of Violet Wood, Cedarwood, Sheer Musks. On first spray, this scent is very floral on me, with the Jasmine coming through strongest. It then settles fairly quickly on me to a fruity floral with a woody base. Luckily for me, I don't get a lot of musk from this, which is fine by me as musky scents definitely aren't my thing.
On me, this has pretty decent lasting power, I can smell it on myself for around 4-5 hours at most, but I have had a couple of people comment on it after I've worn it for a full day at work, so around 9 hours, so maybe I'm just getting used to the smell by then. It definitely doesn't stay strong for all that time, but then it doesn't start strong either. It's a light, fresh, very girly scent, absolutely perfect for this time of year. If you're a fan of strong scents, spicy scents or very deep and complex scents then this won't be for you, it's sweet, fresh and fairly simple, but that's what I love about it.
Obviously, we can't talk about perfume without talking about the bottle, Marc Jacobs fragrances always have the most gorgeous bottles, they're just the right amount of tacky mixed with classy and it somehow works. The Daisy Fragrance bottles are the kind you just can't bring yourself to throw away (I still have my Daisy Sunshine Bottle!), but really why would you want to when they look so pretty on your dressing table? the bottle is made of glass and the flowers are sturdy and well made, so they never lose colour and the gold in the flowers never chips or flakes either, which is huge pet peeve of mine with perfume bottles. And let's not ignore the fact that it's pink. The flowers are pink and purple, the liquid itself is pink which is another thing that I love in a perfume, there's something slightly more special about a perfume with a pretty colour to it, just me?!
So, overall if you're into fruity florals and light, pretty summery scents that make you feel super girly, then you're going to love this!
