Sometime during the day I kept getting whiffs of what reminded me of my boyfriend whom I’m in a long distance relationship with (I hadn’t seen him in a few months which is why it was particularly odd to smell it). Dot is the more adventurous sister, the traveler, bolder, perhaps with darker coloration and more exotic features. If you want a young, wild, fruity/floral perfume, this will def work for you and catch the noses of others. 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.

It's a decent Winter and Spring scent that just adds a little bit to your outfit without making any statement whatsoever. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance. I would not say this is a loud perfume but it does speak out with a ladylike quality of feminine spirit. 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.DOT Marc Jacobs is a lush juicy floral fragrance, blending a sparkling top of dragonfruit, a floral heart of jasmine and an addictive trail of vanilla. 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. Although not a gender-bender, I sometimes prefer sweeter or more candy-ish scents that simply aren't available in the men's department. It is a very generic fresh perfume, nothing special at all, similar to all MJ perfumes I tried to date. Though in general I like Marc Jacob's perfumes I have a really big problem with how expensive his fragrances are as their longevity isn't that great.

The fruit scent reminds me of watermelon but it is probably the dragon fruit type scent I am getting. In late high school, I remember the girl with the locker beside mine having an array of Marc Jacobs perfumes that she would cycle through. Its best quality is that it could be for an older crowd thanks to the floral heart, which is rare for fruity scents.I get a blast of juicy fruits and coconut water on initial application and then it dries down to a slightly more floral fragrance. When I first spray it on, I get a whiff of strong fruity florals, very clean and refreshing, a bit strong and heavy at first. Though it is nothing special, it is well-balanced, and a versatile scent to transition between day and night -- the woodsy element adds something that makes it perfect for getting a couple drinks or a late dinner after work. My boyfriend (who bought me this) was able to tell it was me walking into the room without turning around, based on scent alone. with a background of vanilla, after a moment it changes to mothballs-like jasmine and ends with a strange fruity-woody notes, leaving me with just a headache.

Update: having worn this a few times I've decided it doesn't really work with my skin chemistry, it's too floral for me too and after awhile I find it a bit much. Overall not a bad scent, fruity, sweet, I think it's suitable for the younger generation though (13-17) as it's cheap and a bit bubble-gum smelling (and if I'm rude slightly toilet-spray-esque. Coconut water rather than actual coconut is very present in this on me, which paired with the pithaya gives a very mouthwatering effect. i thought that was only for the smaller sizes but i got the 100ml expecting the cute kitschy bottle, and instead have essentially a naked bottle with a cap that a child was able to hot glue shit to.I got the 4ml splash top bottles, and they're oh so cute, but the splash top makes application a lot more difficult. Weirdly this reminds me of Britney's Fantasy, which I love, it has a similar structure with the fruity/tropical muskiness. Not only do I love the scent, but the ladybug concept here is really sweet, too, though I must say that I don't think of ladybugs as being as tropical as the coconut and dragonfruit notes here. I have almost used up my first bottle (I have about one more wear and then it's gone), the one that traveled the world with me. Tahitian Orchid leans more aquatic, and doesn't have the honeysuckle or red fruit but dries down sweeter.
