Marc Jacobs is my absolute favourite brand for fragrances. I have or have run out of all of the big ones (Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh, Lola and Oh, Lola!) and rarely steer away from them, so I was really excited when Dot was released!
Dot by Marc Jacobs is described as a 'sophisticated yet happy-go-lucky' fragrance which, as cringe as it sounds, I can certainly agree with. It has top notes of red berries, dragonfruit and honeysuckle, heart notes of jasmine, coconut water and orange blossom and base notes of driftwood, musk and vanilla. I really love how the scent is really fresh and bright upon first spritz but dries down more grown-up and sensual, so it's ideal to wear day to night.
Another thing I really like about this fragrance is obviously the beautiful bottle! The design takes inspiration from Marc's love of polka dots, and the 'creature' on top seems to be some kind of butterfly ladybird hybrid. Pretty!
Overall this scent is right up my street and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a fresh, fruity and girly fragrance. I've read that some find it sickly but personally I don't. Definitely give it a go next time you visit a perfume store!
