Marc Jacobs Dot

There are a few things in life that make you (or rather, me, I guess) feel like a princess: wearing a gorgeous dress, having your hair and makeup done, and wearing a brand new scent. More specifically, Dot, Marc Jacobs' amazing fragrance.

So picture this. I come home from an exhausting day of makin' momma proud in a few too many journalism classes only to find a lone little box waiting on my door step. Half a second later, the box was open and this gorgeous bottle jumped out at me. I'm now staring at my new favorite decorative bottle, sitting perfectly on my mirrored display of scents, because really the bottle is half the fun. No one wants an ugly duckling perfume bottle...

Now I guess I should clue you guys into what it smells like. Think fresh and upbeat (I'm no scent copy writer, so I guess I'm trying to tell you my thoughts while I was dousing myself in Marc Jacobs goodness). 

There was something I read awhile back (on the way back from Italy, I was all hopped up on emotions) and I don't think I'll ever forget it. "A woman should always have a fragrance, because how else will someone recognize you?" It's all very old school, but I can't help but love it.
