Having a hardtime choosing between flower and fragrance?

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh might be the solution to your dilemma. 

Marc Jacobs' new Daisy ESF is a bright, floral and fruity fragrance. It radiates with crisp raspberry, sensuous wild rose and deep and warm plum. 

Sophisticated but not too serious, Daisy Eau So Fresh Captures the Vintage Flavour of Marc Jacobs' feminine, edgy designs. 

TOP: Ruby Red Grapefruit, Raspberry, Green Leaves, Pear
MID: Violet, Wild Rose, Apple Blossom, Lychee, Jasmine Petals
BASE: Musks, Plum, Cedar wood

So, what's the difference between the original Daisy and the new Daisy ESF?

Judging from the name "Eau So Fresh", you can probably guessed that Daisy ESF is a lighter scent compared to the original Daisy. 

As I do not personally owned the original Daisy, I can't comment much in terms of the scent difference between the two Daisies. However, I managed to find out more information with respect to the difference in scents from Erika, the PR team for MJ Daisy ESF. :)

" Daisy ESF opens with notes of raspberry, pear and grapefruit. The heart of the fragrance is apple blossom, rose and violet, with base notes of cedar wood, caramel, musks and plum.  

The original Daisy, however, opens with violet leaves, strawberry and grapefruit. Middle notes are gardenia, jasmine and violet, while the base notes are wood, musk and vanilla."


The Daisy ESF bottle is a reinterpretation of the original Daisy - taller and slimmer version of the original rounded, feminine silhouette. The exaggerated gold cap with soft pink and white daisies that are soft to touch and a pop of neon yellow hidden amongst the daisies family. 

Personally, I find that the pink bottled Daisy ESF has a girlier and gentle touch to it and screams elegance whereas the original Daisy's gives more of a "mature" vibe and screams sophistication. 

Being a sucker for pretty things, the cap with its pretty daisies family has definitely added a tonnes of brownie points in my book! :) I am sure many of you agree with me. 

My experience so far (1.5 weeks):

Fruity and floral scents always rank ahead of vanilla scents in my "favourites" department. Hence, it's a no brainer that I am loving Marc Jacobs Daisy ESF. This scent is definitely much lighter and "refreshing" compared to my DKNY Be Delicious EDP and Estee Lauder Pleasure EDP and I feel like a teenage girl again (not that I am THAT old :P) when I use it - sweet and girly. #imsoshameless 
Just like any other EDTs, Daisy ESF does not last as long as Be Delicious and Pleasure. The fragrance is barely there at the end of the day but that doesn't really concern me as it is almost home and shower time for me when the scent fades. :)
