Marc Jacobs has just released a new trio of limited-edition Splash Scents in Ivy, Violet, and Amber. His first three original splashes, Grass, Rain and Cotton, turned out to be huge hits. These new eau de toilette sprays are terrific for fragrance junkies who love the smell of the seasons, since they are designed to capture the essence of the fall and holiday season. You can buy a 10-ounce bottle here for $65.
Violet Body Splash is the most warm and sensual of the three. Made from violet, royal blossom, bergamot, peony, orchid, cedar wood, vanilla, creamy musk, and gingerbread, this will keep you smelling delicious and feeling cozy all winter long.
To learn about the rest,
Ivy Body Splash is my choice for fall. It's got a warm and rich autumn blend of nutmeg, cardamom, mandarin, candy-cane accord, vetiver, and sandalwood. It is very light and the most masculine of the three. I like the stronger woodsy aroma.
Amber Body Splash is more exotic. Made from crystallized ginger, star anise, amber, lily, cassia bark, and cashmere wood, it was inspired by the fall sun and ancient beauty. Unfortunately, this was my least favorite of the three.
