Marc Jacobs - Dot Perfume
I was walking through House of Fraser last week and couldn't help going past the perfume section and smelling the new Marc Jacobs Perfume - Dot. It smelt so good I had to buy it! It features notes of red berries, dragon fruit, honeysuckle, jasmine, coconut water, orange blossom, vanilla, driftwood, and musk.
Dot's bottle is meant to be reminiscent of a ladybird with butterflies landing on it. "A dot is timeless and a pattern I always love, and round shapes are always beautiful. I liked the idea of these hybrid butterfly-ladybugs, which suggest a sort of free spirit and femininity and playfulness. And, of course, ladybugs mean good luck," he said.
I feel like this could equally be a daytime or night time scent; strong but not overpowering. I especially like that it really lasts, but also it still smells great by the end of the day.
