Violet Petals, Gardenia, Jasmine, and Grapefruit. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect floral fragrance. But Marc Jacobs added an extra ingredient to the concoction.. WILD STRAWBERRY. Thus, Daisy by Marc Jacobs was born! As a fragrance given the labels; sunny, sophisticated, and light, this gentle perfume would be an amazing choice for ushering in the Spring/Summer months. Daisy IS the essence of youthful spirit.

Sicilian lemon extracted by cold expression of the peel is the invigorating and refreshing scent at the heart of this fragrance. This is a free spirited, modern scent that combines Honeysuckle, Peach, Rose, Jasmine and a few others to create summer fun in a bottle. The fragrance is none other than Diorella by Dior, and enables you to really get in touch with nature.

Both fragrances continuously receive amazing reviews from users, common themes among them is of course, as floral fragrances, the flowers. The most popular flower scents over a wide range of floral fragrances include, roses, gardenias, jasmine, and many other expensive flower oils. Jasmine is found in both of the fragrances mentioned above, appearing as a favourite by perfume designers. Both employ the scents of a fruit, with Daisy utilising Strawberry and Diorella going for the subtler peach. So we see that a fruity essence could be a key ingredient for an amazing floral fragrance.
