Marc Jacobs Dot

For me, this has been one of the most anticipated fragrances of the year – as a huge fan of the other Marc Jacobs fragrance family (Lola, Daisy and most of all – Daisy Eau So Fresh) I have been really excited and curious to find out what the next ‘sibling’ would smell like.

First up, I have to mention the adorable bottle – design wise I think this is my new favourite. Of course, the Daisy and Lola bottles are stunning. But how cute is this?! A little bit younger with a cross between a flower, a butterfly and a ladybird… love it!

Which is of course awesome if you want a bottle to look pretty, but call me fussy… I want it to smell good too…



And it does! This is the sort of day to day fragrance that I love – really fresh so easy to wear without being overpowering, but still sweet and floral enough to be interesting. It’s a very summery fragrance

But before I start telling you details like it smells of that one summer I wore a pair of purple shorts or something random that no-one can relate to, I’ll tell you the notes as described by people who know better than me:

Heart Notes: Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom
Top Notes: Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle
Base Notes: Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk

Overall it’s described as a floral, but it’s definitely on the fresh side of floral in my opinion. The base notes of vanilla and musk keep it from being *too* fresh or *too floral* and giving it a lovely dry down that’s very different from the first hit of scent.

As with any fragrance, liking or not liking is a very subjective thing – but personally I love this. Not as much as I love Daisy Eau So Fresh, but it’s now a close second in the rankings of my favourite Marc Jacobs fragrances!

Available now from The Perfume Shop (£36.50 for 30ml)
