Isn’t it funny how little things can bring back moments and memories? One of the biggest triggers for me are smells. When my boyfriend and I first started dating, I had recently got a new perfume – Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh. That was four years ago, and I’ve been wearing it ever since.
I always loved the packaging for Marc Jacobs perfumes, each one pertaining to the name of the fragrance. Whenever I was in Boots I would always try out the different Daisy perfumes, the violet undertones reminded me of when I was little and my favourite sweets were Parma Violets. While I mostly can smell the violets, there’s also roses (my favourite flower), and raspberry (my favourite fruit), among others. Also, it’s the pink version of the Marc Jacobs Daisy range, and anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for anything pink! With it’s pretty flowery packaging, there really wasn’t any other choice for my favourite perfume.
Some perfumes are quite expensive, as with this one, so I couldn’t really afford it for a long time. But then my mum got me Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh for Christmas 2011. I was so pleased with it I didn’t open it for a couple months until February, when my boyfriend and I had our first date.
Which brings me back to memories. While I loved the perfume anyway, it’s taken on a whole new sentimental meaning for me. Every time I wear it it reminds me of our first few dates, the new and exciting, getting to know a person and falling in love with them. It reminds me of my wonderful boyfriend and the time that we share together. That’s what this fragrance means to me.
