Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh ~ perfume review Posted by Robin on 8 February 2011 Daisy Eau So Fresh is the latest from Marc Jacobs , and it's reportedly going for a younger audience than the original (and very popular) Marc Jacobs Daisy . Daisy, which came out in 2007 (time flies!) had a...

It's slightly indolic in the early stages, less so later on — not as indolic as some of the huge jasmine bombs (Serge Lutens A La Nuit, Bruno Acampora Jasmin), but nowhere near as clean (or sheer) as more mainstream-oriented jasmines (Guerlain Jasminora, Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile). It's...

All the same, it doesn't hurt to try, right? Here are a few more unrelated quickie perfume reviews. Ed Hardy Born Wild Ed Hardy's fourth fragrance for women, Born Wild, is just what you'd expect — a sweet-ish, middle-of-the-road fruity floral in their signature tattoo-inspired packaging....

I am frequently forced to "research" the "celebrities" whose perfumes I review here, but even I know who Madonna is, and so I assume you do too. An informal survey of young people (ok, I just asked my tween son) reveals that her fame is wide enough to cross generational boundaries, but Truth...
