Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs.

Fragrance: Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

What Marc Jacobs thinks it smells like: “Colorful and energetic, the fragrance radiates sun-drenched juiciness with an addictive fruity top. The heart is an intoxicating breeze of airy, uplifting jasmine petals that dries down to a smooth, velvety base of warmth and subtle sweetness.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “Some kind of fruit”
  • “Like girl.”
  • “Watermelon Dum-Dums.”
  • “Kind of sweet, like if you could eat a flower. Like candy but also floral.”
  • “Like something my mom would wear, but in a good way.”
  • “My hands after I ate cotton candy. If I put perfume on first.”
  • “I went to high school in Long Island. Once, my friend funneled Malibu, and then threw it up. It smells like that; sickly sweet with an underlying tinge of something you don’t want to be around.”
  • “Something you’d find in a bathroom. Soap or shampoo.”
  • “Kind of spicy and kind of flowery, too.”
  • “I like it! Jasmine meets an ocean breeze, a nautical fusion.”
  • “A really crazy girl I used to date. Like real crazy.”
  • “A summer wedding.”
  • “Junior prom.”
  • “First floor of Bloomingdale’s.”
  • “I like this one! Smells like springtime.”
  • “Like a women’s dressing room.”
  • “Mango-y.”
  • “Like a J.Lo perfume, which I know because my little sister has one.”
  • “Coats.”
  • “Smells like these scented poop bags for my dog. Pre-poop.”
  • “It’s not that bad, but it is sickly sweet. Like fifth-grade girl locker room.”
