I DON’T THINK THERE IS EVER A WRONG TIME FOR A POLKA DOT… -MARC JACOBS
Even if this man says that an egg came before hen, I would simply agree. I mean who would deny Marc Jacobs! Someone blind can only back-pedal his fashion wisdom (he gave 16 iconic years to Louis Vuitton as the creative director) and that hawwwttt frame of his *DROOOL* (mind that he is 51 i.e. exactly my mum’s age :-O ) So I can’t agree more! Yes, polka dots can anytime look whimsically classy !
Over the years, Marc Jacobs namesake label Marc By Marc Jacobs has shown polka dots on almost everything, from the hose and accessories, clothes to now fragrances! Dots are a personal signature for Marc Jacobs “ a favorite theme he has returned to time and again, beginning with his very first collection.
Inspired by his love for polka dots, the newest lady to join Marc’s fragrance clan, after Lola and Daisy, is DOT ! A lady with chic feminine charm and a touch of the unexpected.
Dot is a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragonfruits, and sweet honeysuckle. The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with addictive jasmine mingled with energising notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine dry down of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks. The ingredients sound as if they came from my yogurt’s topping 😛
At first the fragrance smells all fruit and flowery but soon transpires into a musky, bold feminine scent. I am not a floral person hence this one stroked the exact cord with me! So if heavy scents hurt your head and flowery ones are a turn down then this one is for you.
But I fell for the perfume even before I nosed it! The vivacious bottle takes your heart. Who doest want a beauty like this to grace the vanity! The packaging of Marc’s energetic polka dot pattern along with the signature over-sized cap seeks love at first sight.
The black and red dot box is eye catching but when you open it, its a different level of WOWness. Round- shaped butterflies of different sizes adorn the bottle. A luminous pearl at the center of the butterfly adds a polished detail.
Though I have a question about the longevity of the fragrance. It lasted not more than 2-3 hours. A branded product like this should at least last a whole evening!
A great pick up for the summer and works for both day and night wear! And I think it makes a great present too! The pretty bottle leaves such a charming effect that the receiver would appreciate your choice.
Surprise someone and get Dot By Mac Jacobs from your nearest Sephora or other leading perfumeries!
Love Marc 😛 !
