Marc Jacobs Daisy in the Air Review

Marc Jacobs Daisy in the Air might be on your Spring fragrance radar…lord it’s been so lovely these past few days in the city that I’ve spritzed myself everyday with a bit of Daisy to enjoy a little Spring while it lasts. I suspect that it won’t last long considering March definitely comes in like a lion around these parts RAWRRRRR!


Marc Jacobs Daisy in the Air is the original Daisy fragrance but housed in a fresh new bottle with cute little light blue daises decorating the top. Call me a kid but I was absolutely thrilled that it comes with a daisy chain which you can hang in a room, closet, or in a draw to scent the area up with the smell of Daisy! Cutes! It’s a chain of brightly colored daisies made out of tissue paper that you can spritz with the fragrance and hang wherever you like! I put mine around the mirror in my car. Of course, no one will hold it against you if you wanna put it around your neck or your head and run around the house.

Count me pleased that Daisy always comes across as such a strong, lingering fragrance even though it’s an Eau de Toilette formula. The fragrance remains strong and true with one or two spritzes and remains fresh throughout the day, well into the evening.

It’s a bit of a complex blend and for me not as light as I normally like my Spring fragrances but very pretty with a hint of whimsy thrown into the mix. Notes includes strawberry, grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals and leaves, jasmine, vanilla, and musk. The violet seems the upper layer for me and the dry down note towards the finish but a heavier note of gardenia manages to create a complexity to the simpler notes in the blend such as the strawberry and grapefruit. My nose can’t easily pick the notes apart in all honestly and first sniff and long after dry down I seem to get the very same thing which is good as you aren’t ending up with a completely different dry down that can be misconceived when you first sniff from the bottle.

It manages to be fresh but it also has a heavier feel that makes it ideal for day or evening wear but I’m leaning more towards evening. It definitely feels very Spring but also somewhat Summer evening as well due to it’s richer notes.

Quite nice really. Not my favorite fragrance in the world but definitely one of my more complex ones.

    I looooove this perfume!
    It’s not very famous here in France, but when I wear it, people frequently make nice comments about it.
    I also love the Gardenia Splash by Marc Jacobs, so light and feminine…
