Without being enthusiastic, I sampled 3 years ago the newest perfume (at that time!) from Marc Jacobs. Coming right before the popular Bang (which did not impressed me from the start, however now I’m a fan!), Splash Lemon was introduced in 2009 as a shared citrus aromatic fragrance. This fragrance belongs to a larger collection called Splash as well, which debuted in 2006 with 3 perfumes: Rain, Grass and Cotton.
The recurrent notes in Splash Lemon are represented by the sunny lemon mingled with Mediterranean accords, which makes it ideal for the summer time, to be applied lavishly on your skin. Motivated by this purpose, the scent comes in a generous presentation, with a 300 ml bottle available in spray or splash version. The bottle that holds Splash is the classic signature flask of the collection, made from transparent glass and having perfectly cut rims. The liquid’s color is yellow, as a reminder of the lemon shade and the stopper comes in a contrasting black color.
On the olfactory level, Splash Lemon opens on an exotic combination of lemon verbena, petitgrain, mint and buchu sheet. Later, as the scent enters the mid development phase, the aroma is shifting to a pungent citrus blend made from iced lemon, mandarin and honeysuckle. The trail happens after a couple of hours and features aromas of white musk, cotton and aqueous notes and vetiver.
Splash Lemon developed nicely on my skin and throughout all the stages I perceived it as the type of clean fragrance, however with a sophistication allusion that became an attribute for the Marc Jacobs scents.
