I hope you’re having a wonderful bank holiday? I haven’t been up to much as yet, but we’re off to Legoland tomorrow for Fred’s birthday, and I’m so excited! It’s a surprise and he has no idea about it. I can’t wait to see his little face when we arrive! 🙂
So today I have the gorgeous Marc Jacobs Splash collection of fragrances to share with you. The 2016 Splash collection contains four previously released fragrances which due to popular demand, have been re-designed and re-released as limited editions this year. The collection includes four gender-free fragrances – Rain and Cotton from 2006, Cucumber from 2007 and Pear from 2008, which come presented in simple chic square glass bottles, and as a collection, perfectly captures the essence of summer.

Crisp to the senses, yet mellow in color, each Splash indulges in the simple pleasures of the easy-going, light hearted spirit of Marc Jacobs.[/otw_shortcode_quote]
Starting with Pear Splash – this is a deliciously fresh and juicy pear scent, but not as sweet as you might expect. This is very much a gender-free fragrance, though it definitely captures the essence of summer, the inclusion of teak and musk prevents it from being too sweet and feminine.
- Top notes: Pear, Lemon and Bergamot.
- Heart notes: Juniper, Gin and Freesia.
- Base notes: Teak, Amber and Musk.
Next we have Rain Splash – this is probably my favourite out of the collection. Rain Splash is a beautifully clean, fresh and revitalising scent, conveying the smell of fresh rain, grass and flowers on a bright summers day. Again this is neither masculine nor feminine, but suitable for everyone and anyone that loves a clean and fresh scent.
- Top notes: Wet Cut Grass, Wild Strawberry, Clementine, and Cypress.
- Heart notes: Tropical Rain, Passion Flower, Sunflower and White Orchid.
- Base notes: Amber, Moss, Teak and Musk.
And Cotton Splash – described as the scent of freshness and purity, this fragrance is reminiscent of freshly washed and sun-dried cotton laundry. It’s a clean yet comforting scent capturing the ease and simplicity of summer in a bottle.
- Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Orange, Peach and Aquatic Accord.
- Heart notes: Lavender, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Cotton Flower.
- Base notes: White Suede, Blonde Woods, Musk and Sandalwood.
And lastly, Cucumber Splash – this is a wonderfully light and refreshing scent of freesia and cucumber. This is definitely another favourite of mine, this fragrance perfectly captures the juicy, watery essence of cucumber, giving a beautifully clean, crisp and fresh scent.
- Top notes: Cucumber, Lotus Leaf, Bamboo and Cactus Flower.
- Heart notes: Lily of the Valley, Linden Blossom, Freesia and Blue Tiger Lily.
- Base notes: Frosted Musk and Blonde Woods.
I really can’t get enough of these fragrances at the moment, they’re all just so fresh and easy to wear on a day to day basis – and they’re very affordable too at only £38.00 for 100ml – I highly recommend you check these out!
The Marc Jacobs Splash Collection of fragrances are £38.00 each and available now from John Lewis.
