Description

It is a very generic fresh perfume, nothing special at all, similar to all MJ perfumes I tried to date. Cheery berry; then dragonfruit and honeysuckle resolve, for me, into something like watermelon bubble gum, but in a very appealing way. This was my signature for the first two years of high school (though when I use it, I spray a lot less on now! Unfortunately, my fears were confirmed: the bottle is cute - though a little childish- but the juice inside is not something memorable.

All I get from this is some REALLY watery, nondescript fruits, some nondescript florals, and something peppery but also hard to pinpoint. Inspired by the kitsch, playful simplicity of the polka dot, a design staple in Marc Jacob’s collections. The flacon is just adorable, but as nice a touch the little pearly plastic bugs are, mine broke off very quickly. I have always found dragonfruit to lack a bit in taste, so I cannot really detect that note in this perfume.When you see a gorgeous bottle like this you expect the contents to be special, but when you spray this it’s kind of underwhelming. If you want a young, wild, fruity/floral perfume, this will def work for you and catch the noses of others. Its best quality is that it could be for an older crowd thanks to the floral heart, which is rare for fruity scents. This is young and girly, the bottle is a big clue to that, fun and fruity, but sensible enough to not overdo it. I received this perfume as a christmas present and it didn't take me long to realize it was that kind of fragrance I have been looking for so long!

I get notes of dragon fruit and sandal wood on my skin, settling down to a clean, fresh perfumey scent. Es muy básico pero no le quita que es un perfume muy bonito tanto en empaque como en notas y aromas. Everyone seems to like daisy and I can get the appeal but I do think is has more depth and personality .After six hours, I can smell it if I put my nose directly on my arm, but as I said, the scent is very basic and generic, so it isn't one I want to keep sniffing anyway. My current bottle is ancient as I am scared to finish it, as I can't seem to find this fragrance anywhere that isn't marked up. The composition has been announced as floral-fruity, surrounded with exotic notes of coconut and wrapped in soft vanilla embrace.

sillage seems good as I put it on the top of my hand and can catch whiffs of it as I am moving around the house doing chores. My Lou Lou or pure poison is for when I want to stand out but dot is something I’d wear when I want to smell nice but not strong.It is not overly sweet, the coconut is not in your face, the white flowers somehow take center stage to my nose and the rest of the notes are the supporting cast. On the skin I get red fruit, honey and a faint pencil shavings note, while in the air I get a barely-rouge honeysuckle with a bread-like quality (probably pitahaya/dragonfruit). 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. I tested a sample today, I was a little on the fence at first but after wearing for about an hour I am loving this little treat of fragrance. This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I do believe that it is an amazing first perfume for high school girls and even if you just like a subtle berry perfume.

Even if the childish bottle is not in the slightest appealing (to me), I tried it, of boredom if not of interest. Overall: Beautiful, understated scent profile, and an average performance for a light summer wearing experience, this is the perfect scent for when you're slightly overdressed or when you want to fly under the radar. Dot is the more adventurous sister, the traveler, bolder, perhaps with darker coloration and more exotic features. It introduced me to Marc Jacobs scents, which make up a large majority of my favorite perfumes (daisy and it's variations are lovely). The weird thing is, I can't even remember the exact scent of it despite how much I wore it over the past summer.

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. I know I love a perfume when I can’t stop smelling my wrist, when it’s addicting and I can smell it in the air and on my clothes. i borrowed it from a friend a few years ago and fell in love with it, finally got around to getting a bottle myself - never looked back.
