About this deal

This doesn't seem to be a well liked perfume, which seems odd to me because I've absolutely adored it since the second I first tested it. It doesn't last more than four hours on me, but I will go ahead to purchase the rollerball to take with me to school.

Marc Jacobs Dot is a cheerful fragrance with top notes of red berries and pitaya fruit which blends into the floral heart consisting of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom. Edit: I received a bottle of this for a Valentine's day gift and, to my pleasant surprise, I picked up a bit more red berries from a fresh bottle rather than the large, uncapped bottle I had been smelling at my work. I guess it must be obvious to absolutely EVERYONE that Dot an I were made for one another, because EVERY.Weirdly this reminds me of Britney's Fantasy, which I love, it has a similar structure with the fruity/tropical muskiness. The juicy and exciting opening is followed by a floral trio composed of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, while a base closes with a trail of coconut water, vanilla, driftwood and sensual musk.

EDIT: Turns out with my body chemistry, this actually does project really well (even though I myself couldn't tell) so test it beforehand? The best I can say is that it's inoffensive, and the bottle is fantastic, so you'll at least enjoy seeing it on your shelf. I would characterize it as a watery red berry scent, but by no means is there anything that smells like natural berries here.I’ve had this since senior year of high school and I always try to find it and repurchase it when I run out. Very generic, smells just like 'oh Lola' and every other Marc Jacobs perfume (with the exception of Decadence perhaps).

In a nutshell I would say Dot is a soft fruity floral (I don't think it smells even remotely like Victoria's Secret Very Sexy which is a strong pepper/pimento/spicy floral) and it's a safe choice with a cute bottle to boot. I saved up carefully and eventually went to purchase the ladybird themed bottle with the butterflies.

Designed to celebrate Marc Jacobs’ beloved iconic pattern, the eye-catching bottle is a cheerful composition of round shapes stylishly spotted in a polka dot motif. The bottle is gorgeous, I love the colour red and so this goes perfectly with me and it is the most stunning bottle on my vanity and it is up against some stiff competition! I'm using the 4 ml dabber, and I don't think it's been tampered with because it was sealed in a blister pack that I had to cut open.

As for the age range, I imagine that this is for someone 20s-mid 30s, although of course you can wear any scent at any age.I have always found dragonfruit to lack a bit in taste, so I cannot really detect that note in this perfume. I always thought that it was light to the point where only I can smell it on myself, but I was very wrong. My 4 year old niece loves the bottle and is waiting for me to finish up the fragrance because she wants the bottle.
