Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

New Release: Commes des Garcons Dot

6 Comments

comme-des-garcons-dot-perfume-1WHAT I SMELL:  Dot opens with a juicy, fruity and tangy orange that’s fresh, but quickly moves toward a flattened and slightly bitter orange.  The perfume feels voluminous in so that when you take a breath of it in, it fills your lungs with an expanse of air and there’s a layer of musk that seems to be painted on to a soft osmanthus.  To me, Dot feels incredibly manufactured as there is nothing remotely natural about the perfume.  But that’s not a bad thing because the perfume has this otherworldly freshness about it.  The soft florals have a slight vegetal tinge rather similar to a carrot leaf.   As the perfume develops, the fragrance doesn’t morph all that much, but it does seem to grow in projection.  In the end, Dot is all about the osmanthus.  It’s soft and lightly fruited, but here it’s topped off with a little powder that feels like it’s sitting on a warmed cotton ball.

Notes:  Leafy Greeness, Bitter Orange, Pepper, Osmanthus Absolute, Olibanum, White Amber Woods

Rabbits&CarrotsWHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Maybe partly because it’s getting close to Easter, but this reminds me of a carrot eating fluffy rabbit.

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE DOT: sunny, easy, effortless

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DOT:  No reviews found, besides comments found on Fragrantica.

BOTTOM LINE:  Dot is a feel good perfume that radiates an uncomplicated positive energy.  I like that!

  1. Love your picture. I was thinking of Peeps chicks but we would have to take out the sugar and just keep them fluffy and airy. l’ll pass on this one. I already have a couple of fluffy fragrances. 🙂

  2. My twisted mind interpreted carrot eating fluffy rabbit as a carnivorous carrot turning on a fluffy rabbit and swallowing it whole. I am more curious about the bottle than the juice.

  3. So, tell me again why did we need another Dot perfume three years after Marc Jacobs’ exercise? I wonder if it’s because MJ couldn’t get a copyright on such a common word? 😉

    Somehow my relationship with this brand didn’t work out: I’ve never come across any perfume I would find interesting enough to wear.
