Marc Jacobs Perfume

Untitled #8

Perfumes. I am not a huge perfume addict, wish I was but I can be quite a picky penelope with scents. I normally buy fragrances from The Body Shop because I find them fresh and not too strong. However, I do have one weakness when it comes to the wonderful world of perfume and that is dear Marc Jacobs. I have been a bearer of Marc Jacobs Lola for about two years and if I feel like indulging in a scent, it is definitely Lola. I first spotted Lola when it had just come out in New York, it was a limited edition and I found the bottle the sweetest thing I'd ever laid my eyes on. Also the most expensive thing I'd ever laid my eyes on. Turns out it was so popular, it became a full-time edition and I received it for my birthday. It was definitely worth the price, even though it had quite a strong smell, it was very sweet and fresh. Two qualities I look for in a perfume. So after raving about how great Lola was and dreading the thought of when the last drop was sprayed, I received the newer edition Oh Lola! I quickly took a liking to Oh Lola! because there was a strong smell of vanilla, which is an absolute favorite scent of mine. The reason I'm rabbling on about fragrances, is because I have been considering buying either his new one Dot or perhaps an old favorite for some, Daisy.

I am pretty convinced Daisy and Dot won't disappoint but if any of you lovelies have one, which would you recommend? Also if any of you are considering joining the Marc Jacobs perfume gang, the price may have you cringing but the scent will be worth it.


  1. I remember the first time I smelt Daisy, I was SO blown away haha. Smelt like my childhood/sweets/bananas! Love it. I smelt Dot recently and it's equally lovely! Great post.

    I'm running a giveaway on my blog at the moment, lots of jewellery to be won, have a look :)


  2. oh lola is my all time favourite perfume...what more can you want out of a scent! Love your blog.
