I died for a minute when I first saw this. That means my heart skipped more than a beat. It was as if it was clutched by this cute ... giant ... ladybug. That giant ladybug is Marc Jacobs' new perfume Dot. Oh-my-bows! Never in my life have I wanted something so badly! I thought to myself- "Given the chance, I'd kidnap Marc Jacobs and hold him hostage just so he'd give/sell it to me RIGHT NOW." Oh yes I would.
And then I wondered "Why didn't he name it Ladybug, instead of Dot?" But maybe the bug is already taken.
Launching this July, the new scent will be called Dot, a "sister" to his insanely popular Daisy and Lola scents.
It features notes of red berries, dragon fruit, honeysuckle, jasmine, coconut water, orange blossom, vanilla, driftwood, and musk. "There’s a juicy, lush quality to it because it felt like the right spirit for this bottle", Marc Jacobs said.
Breaking from the floral motif of his other scents, Dot's bottle is meant to be reminiscent of a ladybug with butterflies landing on it. "A dot is timeless and a pattern I always love, and round shapes are always beautiful. I liked the idea of these hybrid butterfly-ladybugs, which suggest a sort of free spirit and femininity and playfulness. And, of course, ladybugs mean good luck," he said.
Oh July, come faster. Pretty please.
