What Marc Jacobs Daisy Is All About
Daisy is an award-winning fragrance that has been a bestseller since its introduction in 2007. Combining fresh floral notes with hints of musk, strawberries, and vanilla, Daisy works well for most people, which may be the reason why it remains so popular to this day.
You can’t talk about Daisy without mentioning its iconic bottle presentation. With two delicate, white daisies flanking both sides of the cap, Daisy is fun, playful, and fresh – in all aspects.
The nose behind this fresh, feminine fragrance is world-renowned perfumer Alberto Morillas. Inspired by a day at the beach, Alberto Morillas set off to create a fragrance that was youthful and sophisticated. Seeing how iconic Daisy has turned out to be, I’d have to say Alberto Morillas was successful in every way.
Without further delay, let’s get to our list of dupes for this well-known fragrance, Daisy.
10 Dupes of Marc Jacobs Daisy
1. Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel
Starting our list of perfumes similar to Daisy is Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel.
Instead of serving as a backdrop to more floral notes, hints of grapefruit and quince take centerstage alongside fragrant jasmine flowers.
Chanel’s perfumes are often iconic due to their versatility, and Chance is no different.
Chance has a very fresh vibe, just as Daisy does, and is a good option if you’re looking for an office-friendly option.
Chance is quite sweet, though not in an overbearing way, and is better suited for spring and summer. To me, it smells like taking a walk through a warm, flowering meadow.
Chance has a somewhat generic fragrance profile, with no uncommon or unique notes. But, it’s a safe option for many people because of its moderate long-lasting characteristics.
If you’re looking for a fresh daytime fragrance with slightly more varied floral notes, you should check out Chance Eau Tendre. If you’re looking for a scent that features more interesting notes than florals and citrus fruit, you should probably skip this one.
2. Floral Violet by Dossier
Anyone who is familiar with dupes will undoubtedly be familiar with Dossier. The line is known for creating less expensive perfumes inspired by well-known scents. Dossier created floral Violet as a direct dupe of Daisy.
Floral Violet manages to do a pretty good job recreating the overall formulation of Daisy, although it does open up on slightly different notes. It opens up on more of a watermelon scent to my nose before settling into the more familiar territory of sweet strawberries.
The violet notes are pretty prominent, giving this scent a very similar, fresh feel like Daisy. It settles much like Daisy does on the skin, as I noted hints of soft jasmine and warm woody notes before fading into the background.
I think its longevity is somewhat lacking compared to Daisy, but it projects well.
Overall, I believe this dupe is a good choice if you want something nearly identical to Daisy at a lower price.
3. Yellow Diamond by Versace
If you’re looking for an uplifting fragrance that’s warm and cheerful, check out Yellow Diamond by Versace.
Yellow Diamond opens up with bright notes of lemon and bergamot right when you spray it. Like Daisy, Yellow Diamond also features a refreshing floral heart. However, those notes tend to be less prominent in this fragrance.
It dries down into a powdery, musky base that is more noticeable in warmer weather. I believe that Yellow Diamond makes for a great summertime fragrance.
While Yellow Diamond has a unique and varied fragrance profile featuring citrus, freesia, white flowers, and amber, its longevity leaves much to be desired. I noticed that it seemed to disappear entirely within just an hour or two.
Overall, if you’re looking for a softer perfume that doesn’t project too much and is bright and uplifting, you may want to give Yellow Diamond a try. I like the packaging, which features a bright yellow diamond as a top.
However, be aware that you will likely have to reapply this one throughout the day.
4. Dior Addict Eau de Toilette by Dior
If you’re looking for a fragrance that opens up similarly to Daisy but takes more of a creamy softness as it matures, you may want to try out Dior Addict.
While it opens with a similar citrus note similar to Daisy, I noticed those fruity notes tend to fade away quickly.
To my nose, it’s not nearly as sweet as Daisy, though there are hints of vanilla as it settles on the skin.
Overall, I think the white floral notes are more prominent in Dior Addict, but there isn’t any hint of violet. Because of this, I could not detect any fresh green notes that are prominently featured in Daisy.
The projection and longevity are decent, and you could probably go all day without having to reapply it, though it does get quite subtle throughout the day.
I think Dior Addict is suitable for warmer weather, but I don’t think it has the qualities necessary for me to be able to recommend this one as an evening fragrance.
5. Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music by Harajuku Lovers
Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music is often cited as one of the closest dupes you can find for Daisy. I have to agree with this.
The only noticeable difference is that Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music doesn’t project nearly as much as Daisy does.
They are similar in that they both open up with bright, fruity notes. They move through their fragrance profile similarly, drying down into a woody base.
I noticed more of an apple note takes center stage in this fragrance, while Daisy opens up with more prominent notes of strawberry.
If you need a less expensive dupe of Daisy, you need to get your hands on a bottle of this perfume. It hits all the right notes and has a very similar, youthful feel.
One other concern I had is that Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music initially opens up with a very strong alcohol smell. Fortunately, that quickly fades away.
I think Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music makes a great daytime scent and is an excellent option to wear whether you’re lounging by the pool or spending a day at the beach.
6. Eve Truth by Avon
For those seeking an inexpensive dupe for Daisy and don’t mind wearing a fragrance that is very intimate and light, Eve Truth by Avon may be just what you’re looking for.
Similarly bright and airy, notes of black currants, pomegranate, and star fruit mix with fresh gardenias and peonies, making it perfect for hot summer days when you don’t want to wear anything too heavy.
Eve Truth is light and subtle at first spray and becomes even more intimate as it dries down. It’s pleasant, however, not unique in any particular way.
The scent is unassuming and somewhat dewey, primarily due to the aquatic qualities that round it out. While it dries into a base of musky amber, it becomes slightly undetectable after a couple of hours.
Despite being a very close perfume to Daisy, Eve Truth lacks somewhat in longevity. Although you will need to reapply throughout the day, I don’t mind that too much, seeing that it is relatively inexpensive.
7. Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
We can’t continue this list of dupes for Daisy without mentioning its flanker, Daisy Eau So Fresh.
Launched four years after the original, Daisy Eau So Fresh is much more fruity.
I notice sweet notes that present themselves and linger all the way through the bottom notes.
In other words, you should really enjoy sweeter, fruity fragrances before committing to a bottle of Daisy Eau So Fresh.
I detect fresh green hints that reappear throughout the day.
Daisy Eau So Fresh settles into a powdery, slightly musky finish, much like Daisy does.
Overall, it’s a suitable alternative for Daisy if you prefer your fragrances on the sweeter side, but you may want to test this out first before you blind buy. I noticed that the sweetness tends to be somewhat stronger on some people depending on their body chemistry.
The sillage with this feminine fragrance is moderate, with longevity somewhat lacking.
It’s a decent flanker to the original, though it is much sweeter, so keep that in mind before you pick this one up.
8. Applejuice by Zara
This perfume is often referred to as a close replica of Daisy.
Applejuice by Zara does feature very similar floral and citrus notes.
I’ve always appreciated Zara perfumes because although they aren’t exactly long-lasting, they are pretty affordable.
Applejuice is a refreshing scent that you can throw in your gym bag to freshen up after working out at the gym.
It’s pleasantly scented with fresh notes of apple and grapefruit that carry through the day. There are subtle hints of rose and violet, giving it a delicate quality. Finally, it settles intimately on the skin with hints of musk and sandalwood.
My conclusion: It’s safe, inexpensive, and a decent dupe for Daisy that’s much lower in price.
9. Eclat de Fleurs by Lanvin
If you’re anything like me, strong fruit-based fragrances tend to overwhelm my nose sometimes. Eclat de Fleurs by Lanvin is a decent alternative to Daisy that cuts back a bit on the fruity notes and instead showcases more prominent white floral notes.
There is a top note of pear, which is apparent at first spray, but unlike Daisy, this note tends to settle more into the background during dry down.
Overall, the essence of this fragrance smells like a combination between Chance Eau Tendre and Daisy.
Its longevity is moderate, lasting perhaps three or four hours.
One note to consider is that the sillage is a bit stronger than Daisy, so be cautious if floral-based perfumes don’t tend to work well with your chemistry. It’s a great daytime fragrance option for warmer seasons that can be worn just about anywhere.
10. Fiori by Vince Camuto
Those who enjoy floral and fruity fragrances may find Fiori by Vince Camuto to be an excellent option for a slightly unexpected take on Daisy.
I love the surprising hit of bellini that hits the nose upon first spray.
The nectarine and juicy grapefruit notes carry throughout wear and fade into the background to allow fragrant white floral notes and delicate freesia take centerstage.
It dries down similarly to Daisy with warm hints of musk, amber, and cedarwood.
Fiori is a younger fragrance to me, though it is still versatile enough to be worn by those of any age.
The sweetness fades a bit more quickly than with Daisy, but that makes this fragrance a good option for those who prefer the more floral notes anyways.
Final Note on Daisy Dupes
When you’re looking for a similar fragrance to Daisy by Marc Jacobs, you’re going to want to find options that feature citrus top notes, coupled with either strawberry or apple notes as well.
Several of the fragrances I discovered included white floral hearts, as well as freesia and rose notes.
You’re going to want to find fragrances that remind you of springtime blooms and citrus orchards in the summer. An excellent dupe for Daisy will be lighter, a bit more intimate, and fresh.
Your best bet is to stay away from anything too heavy, earthy, or spicy. By searching for fragrances that essentially smell like springtime in a bottle, you’re sure to find the perfect scent that fits your unique personal style and relates to Daisy as well.
