Marc Jacobs Daisy – Eau So Fresh

Described as vibrant, charming and whimsical, Daisy Eau So Fresh is the “spirited new version” of the original Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance. “It transports you to a place that is happy and sunny exuding a youthful spirit with a positively fresh and charmingly simple feeling”.  

Despite the floral name, Eau So Fresh is actually a fruity twist on the original Daisy fragrance radiating with “crisp raspberry, sensuous wild rose, and deep and warm plum.”  The overall scent is clean and crisp, and perfect for a transition into the spring season.


MMV Top Holiday Gift Ideas

Are you still in need of Christmas gifts? Below are items I have recently acquired (whether as a gift, or bought for myself) which I would highly recommend as gift suggestions for that lucky person on your shopping list! Can’t purchase in time for Christmas? Treat yourself to a gift for the new year instead!


Lippmann Collection – Boom Boom Pow


Last winter, Modern Mix Vancouver featured Lippmann Collection’s Marquee Moon, a glittery, silver nailpolish color reminiscent of a disco ball crossed with holiday tinsel.  This year, just in time for the 2010 holiday season, try out Boom Boom Pow, a luxurious nail lacquer with an explosion of glimmering 24-karat gold flecks!  A little bit too flashy for everyday wear, but perfect for a fashionable winter party. It’s apparently inspired by Kate Moss, but I think the Black Eyed Peas may have been an inspiration as well!  Boom Boom Pow and other nailpolish in the Lippmann collection retail for $24 at Murale at Oakridge Centre and are “big three free” of Toluene, Formaldehyde and Dibutyl Phthalate.
