Dot Marc Jacobs Eau De Parfum 50ml

My mum and I were in Debenhams trying lots of different perfumes when we came across the Marc Jacobs perfume bottles. After trying a couple and very much liking Daisy and Dot I finally decided on Dot. It may just have been the beautiful bottle that finally swayed my decision. I must admit it was a tough choice but I think it was the right one. I walked away the proud new owner of a beautiful new perfume, an amazing feeling I'm sure you will agree.

The packaging speaks for itself. I love the look of this and it has well deserved its place in the centre of my collection. I'm a fan of most of the Marc Jacobs perfume bottles, I think they really bring a perfume collection to life and they're lovely collectables afterwards. 

Personally I find Dot to be a sweet feminine perfume, not too sweet so we smell like walking pick and mix's but fruity/floral sweet. You're able to smell the floral notes once it's settled on the skin but I wouldn't say my initial thoughts were floral but rather fruity. 

Upon first spray I could smell the fruitiness, the dragonfruit and the red berries are prominent, I didn't catch any honeysuckle so it may have blended well with the fruit or I'm simply not used to it's scents in perfume. While settling into the skin I could begin to smell the floral heart notes of the perfume. Jasmine and Orange blossom are two of the heart notes along with coconut water. 
I found the vanilla base note to come through sooner than the musk and the driftwood and mixed with the floral notes created a delicate sweet floral smell.
After about 2 hours I was able to pick out all 3 base notes before it began to fade, once faded I was no longer able to smell much at all. Others on the other hand were able to still smell Dot on the skin so therefore it must simply be that I became accustomed to the smell. So long as it was still there though I was happy.

Dot lasted about 4 hours in total, after 2-3 hours I could no longer smell this on myself at all so I had to keep asking fiancé to smell me to see how it lasted. He could 'tell' I was wearing perfume for up to 4 hours after application. He wasn't able to go into scents and what he could smell but he said it smelt similar to about 2 hours after application when I had asked him then too. This is when I was able to pick up on the base notes so it had clearly settled into the skin by then.


A summery of notes:
Top notes - Red Berries, Dragon Fruit and Honeysuckle.
Heart notes - Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Coconut Water.
Base notes - Vanilla, Driftwood and Musk.



I find Dot to be most wearable during the day as a daytime perfume however I've noticed that others prefer this at night, it's a personal choice and depends on what we look for scent wise. I've happily only worn this since it entered my collection a few month ago and intend to carry on using it for many more months to come. 

I'd like to repurchase this when I run out as I feel my collection would look bare without it and it's certainly one of my favourite perfumes. 

Marc Jacobs Dot is available from All beauty.com. 100ml for £51.75. 50ml for £41.95 and 30ml for£29.95

Have you tried Dot? I'd like to try Marc Jacobs Honey so would love to know what you thought if you've tried it.

Lots of Love

  1. This is the sort of fragrance I really like-quite fruity and fresh. A shame it doesn't last longer. I had to giggle about you asking your fiance to smell you as I do that to mine all the time!!
