Marc Jacobs Splash Curacao Review

Have you had a chance to sniff the latest round of Marc Jacobs Splashes for Summer 2011?

Each one is inspired by cool, sweet cocktail on a sun-soaked summer day…the kind I’m of day I’m dreaming about right now rather than dreading a possible rainy weekend!


Well at least I have Marc Jacobs Curacao to keep me from ranting the bad weather!

Those who love a citrus will love Curacao!

This splash contains notes of Blood Oranges, Bitter Orange Bigrade, Lime, Mandarin, Violet, Pear, Apricot, White Moss, Amber, Musk, and Sandalwood.

At first spritz the prominent notes you’ll get are orange, lime, and mandarin. It’s a fresher citrus with a little tartness to it which isn’t overly done in the least. I think the White Moss, Amber, Mush, and Sandalwood give the fragrance a more mellow, softer finish and also a bit of a masculine edge…actually this is one reason I like these splashes as they have a certain “I hugged my boyfriend or best guy friend” vibe…

Although a bit fruity the scent rounds out to be refreshing and has an aquatic dry down with little lingering citrus notes. The moral of the story? A perfectly lovely Summer blend!

One of the most appealing parts of the Marc Jacobs Splash Collection are the 10 oz bottles (I placed a bottle of Ralph next to it so you can see how huge the splash really is)! These will last you for literally ages and for a splash/lighter eau de toilette formula they actually have excellent throw and linger.

Overall, so far, the new Marc Jacobs Splash range proves lovely and well worth checking out.

Definitely sniff ’em your next trip at Sephora.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Rats, rats, rats. I don’t neeeed new fragrances, Muse! Why do you have to do this? Haha. My Sephora hasn’t had these yet, though, which is really frustrating – I don’t like buying fragrances at Nordstrom because there’s usually an overly enthusiastic person guarding them, and fragrances aren’t like makeup – you kind of need to take your time with them.
