I received this cute little bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy au de toilette a few weeks ago at the Fine Finds Shopping Event. Isn’t the bottle adorable and whimsical? It mimics the full sized au de toilette, except the full sized bottle is more extravagant with more daisies on the bottle stopper. The full sized spray sells for 1.7 oz or 50 mL for $57 and 3.7 oz or 100 mL for $72. It was cool that they were giving away a cute 4 mL bottle instead of a little vial.
The scent is youthful, sweet and feminine but not teeny bopper. It does have a nice sophisticated aroma to it without being too mature. I find that this smells more floral and sweeter than the Daisy lotion. It is not as musky as the body lotion, although the body lotion is only faintly musky. After about 1 hour, the floral and fruitiness faded and I can faintly smell the musk and vanilla scents of the fragrance. On my body the au de toilette stays on for about 4-5 hours when I layer this with the body lotion; however, after 6 hours the scent is completely gone. This is a nice spring scent as it is light and sweet. I like this fragrance but it is not really something I would buy for myself. I like the bottle more than the fragrance, as daisies are one of my favourite flowers.
Notes of this fragrance: Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White, White Woods.
