Marc Jacobs launches its Splash series this month - three new scents that evoke the best things about summer.

Grass (HK$570) captures fresh green foliage, blossoms and sun. The notes range from snow peas, wildflowers and white muguet to soft woods and dewy musks.

Rain (HK$570) draws on the colours of flowers in a watery-floral creation. Wet cut grass and Clementine, zest and dewy cypress are contained in the top notes, with passion flower and white orchid following. Earthy, woody notes such as beech amber, tree moss and teak wood complete the range.

Cotton (HK$570) has a floral musk scent that evokes a summer wardrobe, 'from beach to evening wear, all summer long'.

The notes mix cotton flower, lily of the valley and cotton musk. All the fragrances are unisex, come in 10oz bottles and are equipped with spray atomisers.

Marc Jacobs fragrances evoke simple pleasures and experiences. The scents are light and fresh and the colours are pure.

Available now at Lane Crawford outlets.
