Perfume: Daisy
Perfumer: Marc Jacobs
Source: Sephora
Size: 1mL Spray

Sephora Notes: Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White Woods.

Date: 12/13/07 Weather: 43 degrees and damp

Comments: Starts fruity – citrus then turns to apple. A nice green apple scent. Then a floral musk. This is a decent scent with an interesting evolution. Surprised by the “apple” note. Really enjoying this one.

Date: 1/17/08 Weather: 30 degrees and snowy

Comments: Starts like a green violet. Then develops an apple scent. Quicky evolves into a tolerable fruity floral then develops a pretty caramel note that lingers awhile (between the 1st hour and the 5th). Towards the end of the 5th hour – develops a woody note. A more interesting fragrance than I would have thought.

Date: 2/8/08 Weather: 40 degrees, clear

Comments: Still violet leaves and a slight hint of apple. Picking up a bit of white floral after 5 minutes or so. White floral and grapefruit begin to dominate after 10 minutes. Becomes apple-like with some jasmine after 40 minutes. Some vanilla and woods also begin to appear – but at this stage, still a green fruity floral. Gets woody after 3 hours. Gone after 6 hours.

Date: 8/26/08 Weather: 81 degrees, sunny

Comments: Wearing this over 7 hour old Regina Harris Frankinscence, Myrrh and Rose. That brings out more of the violet leaves and mutes the fruit. Becomes a green woody violet that is slightly sweet. Didn’t pick up too many notes this time, partially because I wasn’t paying attention. More of an impression that “I’m wearing perfume.” Don’t think the combination worked particularly well because I felt vaguely uneasy the entire 5 hours this wore on my skin.

Date: 10/29/08 Weather: 43 degrees, cloudy

Comments: First spray – grapefruit. Blek. Then becomes a green floral. For whatever reason, it reminds me of lily of the valley. Blek. I’m getting a similar effect to drinking Savignon Blanc (the Daisy) right after drinking a rich Zinfanfel (Nahema). It makes the Savignon Blanc, perfectly tasty by itself, seem off. The drydown is a thin woody thing with a hint of sweetness. Maybe not the best choice of evening spritzes this time.
