Dot by Marc Jacobs

I absolutely love Marc Jacob's Perfumes (not Lola though!) and got given 'Dot' by Marc Jacobs 100ml for Christmas. I have had this perfume on my wishlist for a long time and couldn't wait to review it.

The perfume is packaged in a sphere shaped bottle made of red glass. Lets be honest, the packaging as the first thing you see can persuade you to buy or not to buy.
I love how this perfume is packaged. Elegantly packaged in red and black polka dots, butterflies heavily appear as a theme. The lid is made up of one large butterfly with either side comprising of a smaller butterfly. Although the packaging is heavily butterfly themed, the colours red and black remind me more of a ladybird. It doesn't really matter, I love both butterflies and ladybirds!
I find the bottle very eye catching and when in a perfume shop my eyes went straight to this. I find the perfume lid quite fiddly and difficult to take on and off. I think this is more to do with the shape of the lid. It's not very practical.
Now for the scent itself, and the most important part of the perfume. I always prefer light scents for the day so this perfume is perfect. Sweet and fruity, this perfume smells fresh without being overpowering. Perfect for both day and night, this is my new favourite perfume!
Retailing at £67.50 for the 100ml bottle at Boots and £38.50 for the smaller handbag friendly 30ml, this is definitely a fabulous purchase!
