Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
It's not officially spring until the release of Marc Jacobs' yearly limited edition Daisy fragrances and this year we have the Daisy Blush ($90 CAD) & Daisy Blush Eau So Fresh ($100 CAD). Inspired by the scents of fresh and dewy bouquets, the two new scents are sure to please fans of fun and playful spring and summer fragrances. To read more, click.......
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush & Daisy Blush
Both the Daisy Blush and the Eau So Fresh Blush come in the classic packagings of the Daisy and Eau So Blush lines (check out last year's duo here), with the exception of some color variation on the floral decorations. The perfumes are tinted a light pink and the caps are adorned with flexible rubber floral pieces with metal centers.

Top Notes: Waterlily, pear, bergamot.
Heart Notes: Lily of the valley, honeysuckle, mimosa.
Base Notes: Precious wood, skin musks.

A soft floral blend, Daisy Blush is a very subdued scent. The pear and bergamot are not very detectable to my nose so the scent was basically all floral. Like last year's Daisy Sorbet, the scent feels a bit dark and moody for a floral, it's definitely still feminine and pretty, but it doesn't have that stereotypical floral profile. As the floral notes settle, the musks and woodsy notes add a nice warmth to the scent. My only critique is the wear and sillage, which is quite a bit weaker compared to the Eau So Fresh Blush.

Top Notes: Apricot nectar, mandarin orange, apple, pink grapefruit.
Heart Notes: Freesia, lily of the valley, honeysuckle, rose.
Base Notes: Cedarwood, musks.

A very fruity and fresh mix, Eau So Fresh Blush opens with the sweet and juicy notes of pear and mandarin orange. The blend has a splash of tartness and floral that add an extra dimension to the fruitiness, making it not too sickeningly sweet. The overall scent is not awfully unique but with a bottle as pretty as this, it's worth checking out for anyone looking for a fun and fresh summer scent.
