Hello ladies (and gentlemen). I am thrilled to announce that Marc Jacobs have released a new fragrance *balloons fall from the ceiling*. Marc Jacobs do come out with new fragrances quite often, but it's my favourite fragrance brand (as you can tell from my collection in the photo above) so I do get quite excited!
So the new fragrance is... *drumroll*... Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Forever!
Daisy Dream Forever was released in Myer and David Jones on 3 August 2015 and this 50ml bottle retails for $120 in Australia. This will also release in Sephora and selected pharmacies on 1 September 2015. I was lucky enough to be send this for review.
Before we talk about the notes, I wanted to mention that the packaging is gorgeous! It is a blue glass bottle with frosted blue glass flowers creating a lace like design. The lid is a metallic silver finish with blue frosted flowers dotted in a cute and slightly 60s inspired design. The one problem that I have with the packaging is that it doesn't actually say Daisy Dream Forever anywhere on the bottle so unless you can remember the specific name of the fragrance, then it looks like its just Daisy Dream. I know that other fragrance lines do this as well, but it annoys me a little bit.
I thought I would also show the difference between the original Daisy Dream packaging which has blue liquid in a clear bottle and white and gold detailing. They are both beautifully designed bottles and I love keeping them out on display.
The notes of both of these fragrances are actually the same! However in Daisy Dreams Forever some of the notes (the ones in bold) are emphasised.
Top notes: blackberry, grapefruit, pear
Heart notes: jasmine, lychee, blue wisteria
Base notes: white woods, musks, coconut water
The original Daisy Dreams is a light floral fresh scent that would suit warmer weather perfectly, however this new Daisy Dream Forever takes on a deeper more sweet and woody scent. I personally like both of these scents, but I can see myself reaching for Daisy Dream Forever more often as I find that warm sweet fruity scents seem to suit me a lot better than very floral scents.
Do you like Marc Jacobs fragrances? Which is your favourite?
