Marc Jacobs Dot♥ || Collab

I've had my eye on the Marc Jacobs perfumes for ages. I don't know why, maybe the adorable packaging and the gorgeous scents. I'm forever looking them up on Boots or Feelunique, and knowing how cute the bottles would look in my collection. When I happened to have gone onto feelunique the other week, I noticed there was a sale on some of the perfumes. I was intrigued and just had to get one.


"Marc Jacobs Dot is a lush juicy floral - happy and vivacious.

The top captivates with a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragonfruit, and sweet honeysuckle. The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with addictive jasmine mingled with energizing notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine drydown of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks.

Top notes: Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle.
Heart notes: Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom.
Base notes: Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk." - feelunique

Fragrance

As you can read from the feelunique statement, it's a fruity perfume. To me, it's also a little bit on the floral side too. It's got a variety of notes, and it's definitely different to any other perfumes I own. 

Packaging

I must admit, the bottle is stunning! I like how the colours have been chosen and how the design works well with the colours. I keep mine in the box, as I do with all my perfumes, but this would stand out from the crowd if you were to display it!

Opinion

I am so glad I bought this perfume! It was difficult to choose just one (I would easily buy all of them if I had enough money!) but Dot stood out to me the most. Whenever I wear this, I receive lots of compliments and questions to what perfume I'm wearing. It has a good staying power - sometimes I can spray it around 9am and still smell it around 4pm, but you would expect that from an expensive perfume. I would class this as highend, so it was definitely a splurge for me!

Do I recommend?

Yes, yes and yes! If you're into fruity perfumes, which are strong but not too overpowering, I totally recommend you smell this. If you prefer more floral, feminine and pretty perfumes, I suggest checking out Daisy.

I 100% recommend this perfume. If you haven't smelt it before, I suggest you get down to a local Boots and have a sniff of it! I bought the 100ml bottle which originally is £68. I couldn't justify paying that much for a perfume, as much as I love it, however, like I said, I got it in sale for £42. The perfume takes pride in sitting on my perfume shelf within my collection.

100ml - £67.50 at Boots
50ml - £49.50 at Boots
30ml - £38.50 at Boots

  9. I agree with you about the bottles - They make me want the perfume, even without smelling them. :P However, the notes of the fragrance all sound like something I'd like so I should definitely give this one a smell next time I'm in a Sephora. Thanks for the great review!
