Marc Jacobs Is Still As Crazy About Polka Dots As Ever — A 'Dot' Perfume Is Next
March 30, 2012
In fashion, Marc Jacobs can pretty much be considered the purveyor of the polka dot trend: recent collections from his eponymous line are peppered with the dotty print and as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton, Jacobs will release a collaboration this summer with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whose famous installations includes “Dots Obsession.”
Now, according to WWD, Jacobs will debut his third fragrance in August, which is named (drum roll, please) “Dot.” The perfume bottle’s design is as quirky as its sister fragrances (Daisy and Lola) and takes some inspiration from the most iconic wearer of polka dots: the lady bug.
As for what you’d smell like if you were to wear Dot, fans of coconut water will be pleased, as well as a blend of berries and floral scents, such as jasmine, orange blossom, honey suckle, red berries, and passion fruit. The fragrance also includes a mix of vanilla, driftwood, and musk. Now try to imagine that for the time being.
For those that want to add a bit of polka dots to their wardrobe courtesy of Marc Jacobs right now, shop for items from his spring line.
