I really really love this perfume. I had smelled it while walking through macys but I didn't buy it. Then it was gifted to me and I absolutely fell in love with it. I don't know why but it has a watermelon scent to me lol. I like it a lot :)

A sensual, flowery smell for the nights.

It doesn't stay on for long which is too bad.
The packagaing isn't as beautiful as the others.

I agree with ladybug151 review below me. I was attracted to the cute bottle, but the smell is quite vile and offensive. I can't pin point what it is. As I was sampling the fragrant, several kids nearby started making the vomit face, ventilating themselves with their hands, and head the other direction. End of my Marc Jacobs Dot sampling adventure.

The bottle is very cute but the fragrance is very generic to me. I have smelled this before and cannot for the life of me figure out which one it is. It's one of those scents that is very common and easy to replicate. That's just not my thing.

I appreciate the scent though, it's a very nice fruity fragrance with a hint of warmth. A very spring/summer scent. The longevity on this is poor. It lasts about 3 hours before it vanishes. I expect a designer fragrance to last more than 3 hours for the price. I don't detect any of the driftwood in it or musk. I just smell the fruits and a subtle warm scent that I think is the coconut. It's very subtle and mixed though.

I wouldn't waste money on this, it's just too common a fragrance to spend $$ on.

I love the packaging. I liked the first 3 minutes of Dot and then it morphed into the most vile scent ever. I dislike this musky funeral home dry down. Horrible!!!

I love this perfume so much! It's very light and perfect for daytime or a date. Heavy perfumes make my head hurt, but this doesnt do that at all! It's very fresh and clean, but it does have a floral scent. I'm not fond of the packaging, because it's a little over the top. Over all it is a fantastic product. Definitely will be repurchasing!

The packaging is so cute but what Marc Jacobs perfume isn't adorable? Very girly, sweet but mature in some way.. Not musky at all also not powdery. Slightly floral maybe Love it! If you love daisy and honey you will love this too

I love, love, love the bottle for this. It's cute and fun, but at the same time reminds me of something vintage. I do not however care for the fragrance, it's very sweet, reminds me a bit of fresh melon. I'm just not a fan of sweet. I had the sad experience of coming of age when BBW was wildly popular and I craved nothing more than Gucci Rush. Dot would be good for someone who wants a fun, light, daytime fragrance.

I love most things MJ but this was such a huge let-down! This scent is analogous to the type of scent that every tween wears like Juicy Couture. Not only is this floral and sickeningly-sweet, it is overpowering; the scent arrives before you do in a room! I would love for the formulators to change this into a wearable scent by decreasing the amounts of sweetness or floral in it. I just cannot imagine anyone over the age of 25 wearing this and be taken seriously. Nice notes but done in all the wrong proportions. Great lasting power like most of his stuff.

I'm not at all a fragrance person, but being a fan of Daisy since it came out (though not so much Eau So Fresh), I'm always interested in trying whatever perfumes Marc Jacobs comes out with.

This, to me, is Daisy's sweeter sister. Whereas Daisy is a fresh burst of upbeat fragrance for daytime, Dot is a deeper, richer scent that is as suitable for evenings.

The reason I'm not a fragrance person is because even high-end fragrances too often are at least one of two things: 1) a heavy burst of alcohol, 2) a scent that barely lasts a half hour and/or I can't smell it unless my wrist is an inch away from my nose. "Dot" passes all my tests. I would give it a B- on lasting power, because I feel the scent fades a lot after at most 2 hours. But I like the scent itself enough that I enjoy spraying it a lot anyway. It doesn't hurt that the bottle is adorable.

I do think it's overpriced, but based on the merits of the product exclusively, I'm definitely a fan.
