Designer Spotlight: 5 Fabulous Scents by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs Perfumes for Women
Marc Jacobs has made perfumes for women since 2001. The main accords are floral. Throughout the years, Marc Jacobs has given us 83 perfumes, but our 5 favorite Marc Jacobs perfumes so far are Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs, Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh, Decadent, and Daisy Dream.
Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs has gardenia and bergamot as top notes. The middle notes are jasmine, tuberose, honeysuckle, and white pepper. Base notes include ginger, cedar, and musk. Fans of the fragrance describe it as a crisp and classy white floral fragrance that is perfect for summer. The gardenia top note is gorgeous and full.
The Daisy Series launched in 2007 and had its 10th-anniversary edition in 2017. The perfume has yearly editions and formulas, but the original is still the classic. It is a sparkly floral-woody fragrance, both charming and intense. It is a fresh and feminine scent for a sophisticated woman who strives for simplicity. The lovely bottle, which is decorated with daisy flowers, is probably the most recognizable feature.
The top notes are ozonic with an intense violet leaf, and sparkly grapefruit and strawberry. The middle notes are floral, with gardenia, violet, and jasmine in a perfect harmony. The base notes appear as ginger and vanilla. Fans describe it as a light and clean scent, like a spring morning, sunshine, or a cheerful young lady.
Daisy Eau So Fresh is a twist on the classic Daisy fragrance. Eau So Fresh could be considered a version of Daisy for the younger woman. With a fruity vibe, this fragrance is lighter with top notes of raspberry, pear and grapefruit. The heart notes include wild rose, apple blossom and violet finishing off with notes of musk, plum and cedarwood.
A recent fan favorite of the Marc Jacobs line also includes Decadent, which is his fragrance for the mature woman. The main accords are woody and amber, sparking sex and sophistication.
The top notes are saffron, Italian plum, and iris. The middle notes keep it classic with Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine, and orris root. The base becomes alive with papyrus wood, amber, and vetiver.
Described as “Ethereal, free-spirited, and luminous”, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs is another fruity floral fragrance. Inspired by the spirit of daisies and beautiful blue skies, Daisy Dream reflects Marc Jacobs’s attention to intricate details, love of elegance and femininity for a light, airy interpretation of the iconic Daisy motif.
Top notes include blackberry, pear and grapefruit, followed by heart notes of jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria. Base notes include white woods, coconut water and various musks.
Whether you are fresh as a Daisy, sexy like Decadent or classic like Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs, his line of fragrances has something for everyone. His perfumes also score fairly high on longevity, which means the ingredients are of good quality and worth the higher price point. What’s your favorite designer scent?
