Daisy by Marc Jacobs

So on the way back from China I was roaming around the duty free shops at Shanghai airport and I couldn't help but be dragged in by the perfume section. The aim was to find a small bottle of the Lady Million perfume I have been using for what seems like forever now. I really do love it though, its sweet but not too sweet, which I like. I looked around and asked lots of the sales assistants but no one seemed to have heard of it. (Possibly because of my lack of Mandarin speaking skills but never mind!)

I was about to walk out and give up when I spotted out of the corner of my eye a cute display of bottles. And worked. I confess i'm guilty for falling for well displayed products, especially when they smell divine as well! I bet by me saying 'cute perfume bottles' most would be able to guess Marc Jacobs new collection, and you would be right.

I had a little nose (bad joke) and tried 'Honey', 'Daisy Eau So Fresh' and 'Daisy'. The hard part is that they all smell so nice! I had to stand there for quite a while smelling and re-smelling all three perfumes, comparing bottle design and prices. But in the end it just fell down to what it should be based on, what one I like the smell of most. 

So the 'Daisy Eau So Fresh' was the first one I picked up. It smelt really fruity and sweet and is meant to have hits of rose, pear, grapefruit and plum which I could smell but no way could put names to it without looking at the label. 

The next was 'Honey' which I preferred as it wasn't as intensely sweet. But as the name suggests it has a honey scent to it which is soothing as well as hints of vanilla, peach and apricot. I was sure this would be the one for me. In fact I went to walk away when I saw the last bottle...

'Daisy' is a gorgeous middle ground of sweet and musky in my opinion, so exactly what I go for. The least sweet out of all three but definitely my favorite. With hints of violet and strawberry and is described as a natural, sunny, pure and free-spirited fragrance. The bottle also looks really pretty with the foam daisies on the lid so it looks great on my dressing table. I couldn't be happier!

Typical I come back and find there is an even better deal on, so if you love this perfume check it out:
