Twinkle like a star all night long with Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs is back with their latest iteration, bottling summer’s most captivating qualities. A modern reinterpretation of the classics, the soft violet hue of the Twinkle Edition, contrasts with the traditional gold accents of Daisy, to bring you a completely revitalized aesthetic. Glittering, gilded and violet petals are layered to create a masterpiece of subdued colours, reminiscent of a hazy summer utopia. Daisy Twinkle bursts open with wild berries mixed with violet leaves, to create an uplifting bouquet of floral and fruity notes. The Eau so Fresh Twinkle edition lives up to its name with a vibrant and surprising blend of succulent fruity notes, contrasted with delicate florals and sparkling raspberry. Daisy Dream Twinkle Edition is exactly that, a dream. The airy blend of lush florals is juxtaposed with a juicy burst of black cherry. Discover more about the trio here.
