Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight Collection Review


Ever since I first saw and smelt a Daisy fragrance I was literally obsessed to the point that I've recently been on a mission to find as many of the limited edition versions as I can; the Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight and Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight were a limited edition set released back in 2014 and as a result were quite difficult for me to track down, so to speak. I really love the way that the Daisy fragrances look with the Daisy topped lids and I've managed to collect many of the limited editions which is great and also surprising as some of them were released about five years ago.

Daisy Delight is a 50ml bottle and matches the original Daisy shape, as well as being clear. The fragrance inside is a pale mint green with a triple Daisy covered lid in shades of mint green, hot pink and peach with gold centres that hide a gold spritzer. The scent itself is more fruity and woody than the original Daisy with hints of apple, quince flower, freesia, iris, gardenia, peony, sandalwood and cedar. I like the scent, but it's definitely not in my favourites as it feels a little overpowering when sprayed. Although the strong smell is a good thing, the negative is that it doesn't last as long as I would like; after a few hours the smell has gone and you need to reapply which is a little frustrating as the RRP was £48. I paid £21 from eBay so I can't complain for that price.

Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight is a variation of the original Daisy Eau So Fresh and comes in a 75ml bottle with an RRP of £52. The bottle is taller than its sister, Daisy Delight and has a pink fragrance inside. The Daisy bouquet that forms the lid is made up of daisies in shades of mint green, hot pink, peach and white in various sizes centred in gold. Underneath the lid there is a gold spritzer which releases the fragrance. The scent is made up of blood orange, tiare tahiti flower, violet, pink pepper, white tea, amber, raspberry and apricot. Overall it's a fruity and floral fragrance but the smell is fairly strange to me, almost as though it's too fruity and too floral; the mix doesn't seem to fit on my skin well. It could be because I'm not a lover of pepper but I was really disappointed that I wasn't in love with this scent.


The promotional materials for these two scents were absolutely to my taste, and I do love how the bottles look, especially when laid out together although I have to admit this limited edition collection wasn't my favourite out of all the other fragrances that I've collected by Marc Jacobs. However, I'm relieved that I bought both of them for less than the RRP considering how little I've used them. Right now they're mostly looking pretty on my dressing table; I'm sure if you're a fan of fruity and floral mixed fragrances that you would adore these, but I seem to prefer the sweeter, more totally floral scents. But they were a definite must have to add to my perfume collection.
