Let the Sunshine in
A dangerous virus is currently forcing us to stay at home if possible. I try to use the time to do long overdue tasks in my apartment. Cabinets and drawers are undergoing a revision. What should stay, what should go? I often come across long forgotten things. Memories are awakened. There is Daisy, Marc Jacobs' successful fragrance, in the 100 ml bottle with the cute plastic daisies, which I still like. It's still amazingly full. I can't resist and I spray the scent on
A green freshness surrounds me, which soon becomes sweeter without losing its freshness. Invigorating pink grapefruit, cooling violet leaves and sweet wild strawberries caress me. Sweet, graceful, cheerful..
Suddenly I feel myself catapulted into the year 2008. Or was it 2007? In any case, it is spring. I met an interesting man on the internet. Sepp. A photography teacher at the college of graphic arts. We understand each other immediately. The photo that his favorite student took of him for me shows an attractive, vulnerable man with a shy smile. Soon he tells me that his wife has recently run away with her fitness trainer and left him and their two teenage daughters in their pretty house with garden on the outskirts of Vienna.

Our contact deepens rapidly. I become addicted to his mails, which are waiting for me daily at breakfast. He is charming, lovable and soon omnipresent in my life. At some point we also start to talk on the phone. His loud voice does not quite match the sensitive guy in the photo, but never mind. I also have a painful separation behind me and long for togetherness. Against my depression I do a psychoanalytic talk therapy. My analyst rolls her eyes. She doesn't understand why Sepp doesn't want to meet with me. He wants to, but he keeps putting it off from one week to the next. "Be careful that this doesn't become another one of your illusionary male relationships," she warns me. Easy for her to say. I don't understand why he avoids a personal meeting with me so persistently. In the meantime, we are already experiencing jealousy conflicts, rifts, conflicts and reconciliations that are ready for film - all virtual, of course.

Summer has long since moved into the country. It's the end of August - and suddenly he wants to meet me. I can hardly believe it. I doubt he'll come until the last moment. Then I see him running in the thunderstorm rain to our meeting place, a café with a guest garden, his blue Armani T-shirt pulled over his head as rain protection.

I admit I like the man in the photo better. The favourite student had lived up to his status and had done a good job, very good job. Am I disappointed? I don't want to think about that now. I concentrate on what I like about him: his mischievous, infectious laugh, his natural, unbiased manner.

It doesn't take long and we start cuddling. Then he leaves suddenly, under a pretext. Almost in panic, it seems to me. I'm confused. Then there is radio silence. I don't know what to think. After days of waiting in vain for a sign of life, I finally write to him briefly: "I hope I didn't frighten him too much ... something like that. Again it takes a few days, then he answers. He has realised that he is not ready for a new relationship for a long time yet, but he is always there for me when I need something.

"What do we learn from this," asks my analyst and immediately answers herself that one should not take so long with a personal meeting. I know, but I didn't have the strength to put him before the alternative: Look, either we meet in the next two weeks or we leave the whole thing alone
What all this has to do with Daisy? A lot of things, actually. Sepp was pretty quick to find a pet name for me: Daisy. How he came up with it, I don't know. Of course I was sensitized to that name accordingly. When I discovered Marc Jacobs' new perfume soon after in a perfumery - it was highly visible anyway thanks to its original bottle - I simply had to test it. I was thrilled by its floral freshness and had to have it immediately.

I loved wearing it for several months, all summer long. When the story ended with Sepp, I lost interest in the fragrance. I didn't want to be reminded of him by anything. Daisy wandered out of my sight into a closet
Over ten years later I no longer have any emotional problems with Daisy. I can approach the fragrance with an open mind.

I sniff the back of my hand. Daisy has become much more flowery now. Violets, gardenia and jasmine dance across the sunny spring meadow. I can't really tell the difference between gardenia and jasmine. It is a bright, friendly scent, cheerful, carefree, graceful and lovely. Of course, those who say it is not sophisticatet and complex enough are right, accusing it of triviality and lack of originality. But must everything always be complicated and an intellectual challenge?

Daisy is a summer scent - light, sunny, playful and a little romantic, right up to the end when the flowers and strawberries combine with musk and vanilla to create a gourmand-creamy happy end. Daisy does not want to be complicated or capricious. She is what she is, a delicate fragrance of sparkling grapefruit, lots of white flowers, fruity strawberries, not too sweet musk and fresh green. There must be room for this too in the realm of fragrances. And sometimes one - me - feels like it.

Sure, there are many similar flower scents. But Daisy still stands out from the crowd. The quality is unmistakable, the composition is successful and the individual fragrances harmonize wonderfully. Only the durability could be better. But it is a summery eau de toilette that doesn't want to be too heavy.

I don't see in Daisy a fragrance that - because it is flowery and fresh - only suits young, carefree girls. In general, I think that one should slowly but surely free oneself from such pigeonholing. Daisy's unbroken popularity and almost countless flankers seem to confirm this.

The synthetic flower meadow
Hey hey!

Today I come to a rather simple fragrance. Daisy from Marc Jacobs, the first Daisy before all the Flankers appeared. So, now of course you'll say: "This is him again, he won't rest until he's added his mustard to all the fragrances, even to the fragrances that already have 1000 commissions here on Parfumo!"

But you know what? Oh, bad luck. I'll write the commi anyway and you should enjoy it!!! He he he :D
Apart from that, the next 3-4 weeks there will be less commis from me to read as I fly away. It's not a holiday, but I don't think I'll be able to publish anything every day, but I'll still try to get some of the commissioners to pelt down on you during the week. So that you can say "That's him again, he won't rest if he doesn't publish at least 5 Kommis a week"! ... argh, you are never satisfied...!!!

All right, I'll get to the scent anyway.

The fragrance:
For me, the fragrance starts quite flowery with gardenias, then gradually fruity fragrances are added. Grapefruit I can only recognize rudimentarily as a "citric scent", the same is true for strawberries, which are also only slightly reminiscent of these fruits, which may also be due to the fact that all these fruity scents are extremely synthetic.
Actually the synthetic can be felt and smelled everywhere, which doesn't smell so great for me, because the synthetic belongs to the kind of synthetic scents, where scents smell cheaper and "just mixed together fast".
Well, violets are added (which of course smell a bit more synthetic), as well as musk.
The flowery notes later smell a little diluted, but still okay. The synthetic remains for a while, even if it becomes less disturbing in the base and then gradually subsides. But the flowery notes become stronger in the later base and unfortunately also more stuffy, which bothers me the most with this fragrance here, because it is the base or the later base that lasts the longest and one therefore smells these stuffy fragrances the longest. Of course, anyone who likes such fragrances or doesn't mind this criticism can ignore it from me :)
Oh, and despite the musk, I felt the scent more than unsweet.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is still strong at the beginning, but then weakens extremely fast in the next minutes, it evaporates so to speak and is then only smellable from close by.
Also the shelf life is not so long, so that the fragrance begins to decay after five hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is beautiful but has some nice details to offer. The most striking is the lid, which shows two large daisies and daisies that look beautiful. The rest of the bottle itself is rather less spectacular, but all in all it became very nice.

Okay, admittedly, despite my criticism and the multiple mentions of synthetic scents, the scent actually isn't that great, but it's not a complete disaster either, so you could still do something with it.

I imagine such fragrances to be particularly good for younger people who are simply looking for a general and somewhat undemanding fragrance for everyday use, for example at school, university or work. In my opinion, it is less suitable for going out, because it smells too banal for it and in this case, if you stay with the target group, I would rather go for the fragrances of Gaultier like the Classique series (whereby the Classique Essence de Parfum is to be recommended to absolutely EVERY target group, because the fragrance really really smells great and stands out among all the Classique fragrances)

Yes, as I said, Daisy is not a complete disaster, but you don't necessarily have to test him now either. By the way, it could be used as an all-rounder, because it is neither too light nor too heavy, well... maybe it goes a bit more towards spring and summer.

Okay, that's it, I tried to be brief (so that you ungrateful packs are not annoyed...!) and so I'm already done for today! :D
So have a nice evening and see you soon!

Abstract Jasmine and Fruits in a Clear Base
It's been a couple of years since I first reviewed Marc Jacobs DAISY, and it's interesting to take it up again after having encountered many more recent perfumes in this same style. They differ in their sweetness, but they all focus around a clean jasminoid (hedione?) note. I'm thinking of Calvin Klein BEAUTY, Jennifer Aniston's perfume, and DKNY PURE, for starters. It's seems as though there have been many others, as well.

DAISY to me is an average designer fragrance with the now-typical abstract floral and fruity elements. The musk here does not really smell like musk, so it's nothing like NR FOR HER. Instead, it's more of a clear resinous base veering toward the acrylic side. Overall, this is not very appealing to me, but it's not really unappealing either, which is actually something given that the perfumer is Alberto "Chemical Albie" Morillas, who has signed many a scrubber in my book.

Try before you buy. It's entirely abstract, but that's the modern way, I guess. I don't really consider this to be perfume--it's a fragrance--but that's what many people apparently want these days. In addition to plastic flowers affixed to caps, or so it seems...

20 daisies a day (is what you need)
Light refreshing. Dried hay, grasses, only very lightly floral, trailing wisps of vanilla. some say light violet, strawberry.. I say is delicate, light, breezy, watery, subtle floral. Lasts less than an hour. Bottle is precious. Price is silly. Try Yardley's Royal English Daisy for the same scent at 1/5 the price, it lasts as long as this too. the new Marc Jabos Dot is similar, lightly fruity instead of lightly grassy.

A perfect dream
I am lying on a beautiful lawn full of flowers, sun is shining. It is warm but still not as hot as in midsummer. A tender cloud is passing by. Birds are chittering. Time is standing still...

Wake up!! I am in my office!

Violet, floral, very soapy laundry musk. Lasts, strong projection, leaves a trail. 'Perfumy' reminds of bath cubes and bubble bath seeds.
