Coco Mademoiselle vs. Daisy

Posted on: October 22, 2008

Youthful femininity must be the theme of 2008. Marc Jacobs rocked the perfume world this year with Daisy, a vibrant, feminine perfume that could appeal to young women. Chanel released Coco Mademoiselle in 2001, but are giving a new life to it with an ad campaign featuring Keira Knightley. Coco Mademoiselle is “a feminine and sexy, young and exciting interpretation of the irrepressible spirit of Coco Chanel.” Chanel describes it as an “oriental fragrance, fresh and sensual.” Sounds a lot like the motive of Daisy to me! Decide for yourself:

“Marc Jacobs has influenced the way young women think about style with his reputation for mixing sophisticated elegance with an offhand, amusing charm. This creative approach is the inspiration behind his new perfume, Daisy, which exquisitely captures the spirit of the Marc by Marc Jacobs line: elegance infused with youthful vibrancy, capped with an unexpected twist.”

Just replace the Coco’s with Marc’s and it’s basically the same concept. Interestingly enough, the notes of each are stunningly similar as well:


Top Notes:
Coco with orange, bergamot, and grapefruit.
Daisy with strawberry, violet leaves, and rudy red grapefruit.


Middle/Heart Notes:
Coco with litchi, rose, and Italian jasmine.
Daisy with gardenia, violet petals, and jasmine


Base Notes:
Coco with Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, bourbon vanilla, and white musk.
Daisy with musk, white woods, and vanilla.


Now, I’m not claiming these smell the same, just that they seem to have the same function which just happens to be Marc Jacobs trademark style as well. It’s the “sophisticated elegance with an offhand, amusing charm.” Marc Jacobs is just being himself really, but perhaps his style’s coming of age has sparked new life into Chanel’s existing fragrance of the same style. Perhaps Mademoiselle was ahead of its time.

What do you think of these two perfumes? Are they similar in scent to you, or just in concept?
