Every year Marc Jacobs entices us with a new collection of his light Splash fragrances – not as heavy as your traditional perfume, but interesting enough to intrigue someone who is close enough to smell it.
This season, we are invited to linger at a Paris patisserie, enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful sweets in front of us on the table. The three new limited edition fragrances are Apple, Pomegranate, and Biscotti, perfect for a summer fragrance. Each scent is packaged in a large clean glass bottle and won’t be around for long.
MARC JACOBS ‘Biscotti’ tempts the senses with its savory aroma and a touch of citrus. Uniquely delectable and crisp, biscotti is the perfect pick-me-up. This comforting and refreshing interpretation is unique and beautifully surprising. Developed by Richard Herpin of Firmenich, this citrus floral treat opens with the tempting aroma of freesia, bergamont and orange flower, the heart of pistachio blossom imparts a sweet richness. Creamy and soft vanilla add balance and a smooth softness. The warm golden tint of MARC JACOBS ‘Biscotti’ captures the sensation of taking the first bite of a sweet biscotti cookie.
MARC JACOBS ‘Pomegranate’ creates a fresh sensation, capturing the sparkling radiance of an exotic fruit. Vibrant and upbeat, pomegranate exudes an inviting balance of elegance and brightness. Created by Perfumer Patty Hidalgo of Fragrance Resources, the fruity floral fragrance invigorates with an enticing burst of mandarin flowers, bergamot, and lemon chiffon, ruhubarb and violet mix with uplifting pomegranate. The dry down is a sugared musk with a blend of vanilla, and amber. The inviting pink tint of MARC JACOBS ‘Pomegranate’ captures the lusciousness of a fresh sun-ripended pomegranate.
MARC JACOBS ‘Apple’ provides the irresistible brightness of fragrant green apple. Deliciously fruity, apple is aromatic and energizing, with an intriguing freshness. The scent evokes the enjoyment you get from a fresh tart on a lazy day. Developed by Yann Vasnier of Givaudan, tart yet refreshing apple juice opens brilliantly with juicy apple, lemon and grapefruit. The unexpected surprise of rosemary, jasmin and soft stellata magnolia playfully join in. At last, warm driftwood, coriander and cardamom gently delight, creating an addictive appetite for more. The crisp green tint of MARC JACOBS ‘Apple’ reflects summer’s breezy, garden-fresh color palette.
Available March 2010 at fine department stores (including Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, and Nordstrom) and MARC JACOBS Boutiques while supplies last. Each 10 oz. bottle will retail for $68.
