Daisy, Marc Jacobs
Fragrance Friday? Maybe, just one time thing. I´m not an expert on this, but I just want to share my experience. I read some comments on a webpage of people saying that bloggers have no knowledge on perfumes and just take nice pictures of a perfume they are payed by. I´m not going to say some don´t because I have no idea, but as for me, I just show what I like and, as I said before, my experience. It´s like an unprofessional review.
As regards Daisy, I wouldn´t say it´s my signature scent, but it definitely has a soft spot in my heat. I´m always into strong floral, and from my inexperienced smelling sence I can tell that it has mainly notes of gardenia, Jasmin and violet, also a strong smell of vanilla and from what I read it contains white woods (I could never detect this) and a subtle note of grapefruit and wild strawberry. But the main smell is of flowers, but the vanilla and woods accentuate the scent, while the fruits make it fresh. It´s a strong smell, perfect for summer and spring, but I sometimes feel down during the winter and wear it all the same. It´s labelled under the "summer fragrance" which means that maybe you can get it in a discount during the winter. Talking about this, I saw that in stores such as Nordstrom rack, you can find a-list fragrances on sale. It´s always good to know about sales, right?
As I investigated a little before writing this review, I came across an article, published in November edition of British Vogue by Jenny Van Sommers about how labels define our tastes. It states that visual and language have a control over odour perception, this means that we see a decorated bottle and I it will makes us think it´s nicer than what we had thought if it had been in a regular bottle. Another interesting topic is about brands and celebrities. It gives to clear examples, one on Chanel No 5 while advertised by Marilyn Monroe, the sales went up and what´s more, we still associate it with her. Secondly, One Direction´s Our Moment was the fastest selling fragrance, and it was even in pre-order, people didn´t smell it, just bought it because a celebrity recommend it.
It´s becoming a hard issue to find our identity with all the advertisement nowadays, but I dare you to start this adventure and seek for a fragrance that makes your mood lighten, that makes you feel comfortable, that identifies you. Good luck!
xxx, have a nice weekend!
