Marc Jacobs Splash Tropical Collection 2012

It’s that special time of the year again kids.

Marc Jacobs Splash time.


Marc Jacobs Splash Tropical Collection is the newest selection of splashes launching this Spring/Summer 2012. The most interesting news about these new splashes is the size change.

Take a peek!

The Tropical Splash Collection with feature one old scent as well as two new ones. Rain is an old fragrance from 2006 and returns in a new format with this release and new splashes Kumquat and Hibiscus round out the trio.


  • Top notes: wild strawberry, clementine, cypress
  • Heart: orchid, passion flower, sunflower
  • Base: amber, teak wood, moss, musk


  • Top notes: tangerine, bergamot, orange
  • Heart: kumquat, tiger orchid, jasmine
  • Base: woodsy notes, cedar, musk


  • Top notes: raspberry, mandarin, peony
  • Heart: hibiscus, tiare, freesia
  • Base: woody notes, vetiver, musk

Now the interesting news….

Remember the large bottles they used to come in? Those jumbo 10 oz splashes are now replaced with mini 3 oz sizes.

I’m not sure how I feel about the smaller sizes. I think one of the best factors of the splashes was the huge size. Plus keep in mind they are EDT so you might need a little extra to get the best throw and last thus resulting in running through the smaller size faster.

On the plus side, they are kinda cute!

What do you think?

As more information becomes available I’ll post.

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.

    awww…bummer. i used to enjoy the huge size you get for 60 bucks….whats the pricing for the smaller ones now??

    • the Muse

      no word chibi, I should have details shortly but I’m hoping cheaper, as in the $20 range consider $67 was quite a nice deal for those huge bottles. I agree b/c the LE factor made it nicer to have the larger size when it was gone now I feel a need to hoard! :-/

  • Laura

    I’m so on board!
    No Vanilla and No Patchouli and no candy flavors!!!!

    So being a splash – is that lik you splash it on in the shower???

    • the Muse

      no hun just apply as a regular fragrance, it has a spritzer, body splash is merely another way of saying body mist/spray

  • Noelle

    I liked the larger sizes as well.

    I seen these on the MJ website. It’s $40/3.4oz =/

  • Tracy

    I’ve never tried these ! But sounds awesome ! I have to hunt them down, sometimes, it’s not easy in Canada…

  • Holly

    Darn! I loved the larger sizes and always got at least one scent each summer – while I don’t think that I ever finished a single bottle (in fact, have two bottles with a little left…..). I would like if they perhaps did a small set of the three. I’m hoping like previous commenters that the price is cheaper since it’s such a size difference!

  • Connie

    Kumquat and Rain are completely up my alley!! Can’t wait for these.

  • Kim

    I love Marc Jacobs fragrances but I never bought one of the splashes before because I did not like the large size (I like to wear different scents everyday). They all sound nice, esp. Hibiscus. I hope they will be at Sephora or Nordies soon.

  • Christy

    Where r these. I love all the splashes and can not find them. Macy’s does not carry them anymore
