Marc Jacobs 'DOT' prefume and Celebration of Chinese New Year




Hello my loves:) 
In this post I will tell you more about Celebration of Chinese New year. And what's better I will celebrate it with Marc Jacobs 'DOT' perfume. Why with this particular perfume? Well, keep on reading to find out.



On February 8th Chinese New Year begin, also known as Lunar Year or Spring Festival. We are saying good bye to Sheep and we will welcome Monkey. Each year is characterized by one of 12 animals, which appear in Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (houses), that each house has a time length of one year instead of one month. This year is the Year Of Money, the 9th animal in the circle. People born in a year of Monkey are characterized as quick-witted, curious, innovative and mischievous.  
Chinese New Year is celebrated with the Spring Festival, which includes fireworks, parades, dancing, Red Lanterns and other decorations. Red color represent happiness and life. To bring luck to your year, Chinese tradition dictates that you should buy something red for yourself and your house. Also dress up in something red. It can be scarf, sweater, shoes they said it will bring you luck in coming year. So keep this in  mind. The evening preceding Chinese New year Day is an occasion for Chinese Families to gather for annual reunion dinner. It is also a tradition to cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and make a way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated red. Also Chinese people give money in red envelope.
I personally life with Chinese neighbours. Every year when they celebrate they always bring over food and candies. Same at my work.My co workers (most of them is Chinese) they bring candies and my foods. Which is always a plus, coz I love Chinese Cuisine.




Now you know why I want to celebrate with DOT perfume? It is red and plus it smells delightful.
Marc Jacobs describe DOT as beoign floral-fruity scent surrounded by exotic notes of coconut water wrapped in soft vanilla embrace.
This colorful creation launched in 2012. Classic, sexy summer scent. The DOT represents joyus spirit.



When I first spray it, I can smell sweetness of berries. Then When fruity scent comes down it transform in floral, I can smell Jasmine a lot.
Marc Jacobs never fails to bring beautiful, one in a kind collectible bottles. DOT is an example of it.
Eye catching bottle inspired by Marc love of polka dots. Round red glass bottle with black polka dots. In the middle of the bottle you can see golden plate with on it. On the sides flowers with pearls in it. Lid features large petals. Inside there is another round red ball with black polka dots. It  reminds me of a ladybug. I can't get over how pretty the bottle is! Marc Jacobs never can do wrong.
I also have a matching shower gel and body lotion. Both comes with red tube with black polka dots.
The scent of shower gel is very pleasant, just like perfume. It foams a bit and leaves my skin with s beautiful scent. And to keep the scent up for longer I use a matching body lotion. It absorbs quickly and it non sticky
I really like the scent. It is not overpowering. It kind of let me think I walk in a tropical garden.



Top Notes: Red berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle
Heart Notes : Jasmine, Coconut water, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk.



So I hope I get lots of luck in coming year :) And I think DOT is a great perfume to celebrate it with. Not only is RED but it also smells delightful!
