Fragrance: Marc Jacobs Dot eau de parfum

I was recently lucky enough to win 50mls of Dot, the new Marc Jacobs fragrance from LifeStyled, one of my favourite reads. Not only was I really excited to try it, I was also thrilled to receive my first ever MJ fragrance. About time some would say.

Dot comes in a huge box thanks to the big ladybug wings. When it comes to design, this is one of the most extravagant and gorgeous bottles I've ever seen.

The scent is also unlike what I would normally choose but I just love it. There are soft notes of vanilla and jasmine which may sound too sweet but it is simply light and sensational at the same time. Perfect for spring and summer.

Other notes include red berries, coconut water, honeysuckle, orange blossom and musk. I have to admit the musk surprised me because I usually don't like musky fragrances but you can't tell with Dot, it's just a gorgeous mix of florals and other juices.
In order to win the fragrance you had to share in 25 words or less "What is your favourite polka dot memory, whether in fashion, history or other". My answer went along the lines of the fact that I wore a polka dot dress to a second date four years ago and we are still together today.
I do love polka dots and there is definitely some magic in them! Thanks to Dot I have found the perfect summer fragrance and it was simply meant to be. I do like it when that happens.

What do you think of Dot? Do you have any other MJ fragrances?

  1. I really love the bottle of Dot and the fragrance is so nice, but it doesn't stay on me for very long unfortunately! I really like all of Marc jacobs fragrances, especially Oh Lola and Daisy Eau So Fresh! Congrats on winning, especially with such a nice story!

  2. I am a little jealous that you won, I entered a few different competitions and had no luck!! Guess it wasn't meant to be. ;)

    Love this perfume (although possibly just a wee bit obsessed by the bottle) and the scent is perfect for the warm summer months!

    I do LOVE Marc Jacobs, I have a few of his scents and a pair of sunnies. :)
