I’ve always kept my eye on Marc Jacobs perfumes. First there was Daisy, which has always been a hallmark fragrance for me. It’s funny how certain smells can remind us of certain moments in our life and Daisy reminds me so much of first year Uni that I will never wear it again. I know it’s a bold statement to say but it’s certainly special. Then, came Lola which I thought was a bit too mysterious and musky for me and when I saw DOT on the counters, I became throughly excited.
Dot is a little different. It is heavier and sweeter than Daisy but lighter than Lola. It represents the in-between and is a much fruitier than floral scent. It is sweeter with top notes of red berries, dragonfruit and honey suckle, heart notes of jasmine, coconut water and orange blossom and base notes of vanilla, driftwood and musk. It is thus a fruity, sweet and musky fragrance. I like it. I can’t say I love it because it smells familiar and not to my memory completely unique and unheard of. I think to me, Daisy was really a unique and classic fragrance. Along with Chloe. But this one reminds me of those Victoria Secret or Bath and Body Works bath sprays you spritz on after a shower with hints of Sweet Pea. It really does smell nice but perhaps so can anything. Smell is a matter of personal preference anyway so you might as well give it a whiff the next time you’re near one. It also gives a refreshing “after-smell”.
