Basenote Bitch

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

This scent smells like the first day of class at Parsons circa 2008 but if we’re being honest—also now. Every fashion bitch wore their Marc Jacobs Daisy which likely sat underneath a Gustav Klimt The Kiss poster that they thought was really unique and interesting. Sorry sweety, I hate to inform you that much like this fragrance it wasn’t. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not an iconic scent. I definitely stole spritzes from one of my own roommates in college with the hopes that I would someday put a sock on my door and be taken by a Jazz major down the hall who’s feet smelled putrid, and who would make me sit through a listen of John Zorn. I digress. This is for the 18-21-year-old who wants an easy scent to grab in a world of chaos and steamy, pissy, summer subways. It’s uncomplicated, innocent, and not who you’ll be after a couple years of independence in NYC. However you will look back fondly on this time.

Notes include: strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, musk, and vanilla. In real life you’ll smell like a wholesome bitch with a darkness—or the cast of Gossip Girl at their peak popularity in 2009. xoxo!
