Description

I also always spray some of the fragrance into the lid - most of the time that gives me an idea of sillage and longevity. Dot is obviously a fruity-floral but I don’t say this in a dismissive sense (as in, I don’t mean to say it smells like all of the others out there). Dot is the most detailed bottle yet, its signature oversized cap features butterfly wings and a polka dot ball centre.

But after awhile, the driftwood and the musk mingle with the honeysuckle and orange flower-I have progressed from the beach bar to the shore and I can breathe in the waves, the seaside flora and the earthy scent of sandy driftwood. I had wanted it since I was in High School (that was 7 years ago), but back then I didn't have the funding to make this purchase. The juicy and exciting opening is followed by a floral trio composed of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, while a base closes with a trail of coconut water, vanilla, driftwood and sensual musk. I was looking forward to smelling an array of tropical fruits, but all I got was garish, artificial notes of something.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. 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. Reminds me of fruit punch with a twist at first whiff (I think it's the pitaya that sets it apart), but I don't find it overwhelming (it's still well tempered by the acidity of the berries, the coconut milk fragrance and the constant undertone of white, floral musk). Maybe it's because I'm easily impressed that I expected to like this more, but I find myself agreeing with so many of the reviews here. After some time, you can smell a hint of the coconut, but at first you get a whiff of sweet berries with floral splashes.

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). Its best quality is that it could be for an older crowd thanks to the floral heart, which is rare for fruity scents.The weird thing is, I can't even remember the exact scent of it despite how much I wore it over the past summer. Like it says, it's a very fruity and energetic scent- sort of reminds me of cheerleaders from back when I was in high school or of the picnics I used to have with my friends. A delicate, fruity, white floral [that I would almost describe as aquatic or ozonic] drying down into a soft vanilla musk.

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.

I don't mind reapplying, and it was never so strong that I felt it would choke out anyone in the bathroom.

It introduced me to Marc Jacobs scents, which make up a large majority of my favorite perfumes (daisy and it's variations are lovely).I saved up carefully and eventually went to purchase the ladybird themed bottle with the butterflies. i'm not really a white floral fan but can appreciate that it's smells like white florals dipped in a tropical fruit juice, which elevates the florals and brings a maturity to the fruitiness. From the first spray onto my skin the smell reminds me of so many happy memories and the connection between a fragrance and a memory still to this day shocks me. Then about 30 minutes in, I start smelling Jasmine with hints of Coconut/Vanilla and about 2 hours later my skin has a lovely scent of Woodiness with a Vanilla Musk note.
