Brace yourself for another set of Marc Jacobs Splashes due out in April. This time around, MJ doesn't mess with fancy floral or grassy fragrances. Nope, the limited-edition Sorbet Splashes ($65 each) come in Grapefruit, Basil and Pear scents.

The scents are designed for layering, but of course they can be worn separately. (Remind you of Jo Malone much?) And once again, they come packaged in Marc's signature thick glass bottles.

I haven't been able to get my hands on any samples yet, but after reading about the ingredients, I am most excited about Pear Splash. There's something refreshing about biting into a sweet and juicy over-ripe fresh fruit in the summertime.

For more specifics,


  • Basil Splash contains notes of tomato leaf, lemongrass, basil, freesia, jasmine, white musk, cashmeran, sandalwood and orange flower.
  • Grapefruit Splash is made from a blend of citrus, woods, orange flower, watery ozone (what's that), ginger, freesia, tagette, amber, white musk and patchouli.
  • Pear Splash is a mix of bergamot, lemon zest, pear, freesia, juniper, gin accord, musk, teak-wood and amber.
