      Pomegranate Splash is part of Marc Jacobs collection released in 2010. It is classified unisex and belongs to the floral fruity category. The packaging is the same with the previous collection such as Apple Splash, Biscotti Splash to name a few–it has a transparent square flacon. This particular fragrance used light pink for its liquid. At first I was skeptic about the scent because the inspiration was too bold. My experience of pomegranate was boring and commercial. However, the scent is a blend of all other notes so there should be a different twist to it. With all the previous releases from Marc Jacobs, I wonder if they will stretch the inspiration by using almost all fruity smell imaginable.

      Starting the scent is the very smell of pomegranate. It

      was an instant sugary thrust to your nose. However the opening did not just solely smell of pomegranate. It was combined with bergamot and mandarin orange. The smell feels like a fruity concoction or perhaps it smells sweet citrus. The smell of pomegranate became obvious later as the scent started to shift to the segue. The heart was dominated by the smell of violet. It had this soft floral aroma which is distinct. Some might say that floral smell is similar and they always associate it with traditional notes like jasmine and rose but violet registers differently. It smells a little strong but beneath this robust smell is the floral gentleness of it. Then as this smell from violet lingers, the aromatic flavor of rhubarb began, then transforming the concoction to ...

      • an aromatic smell. The smell of vanilla, amber and musk were the dry down notes.

        The start for me was fresh. It energizes you when you smell it. Pomegranate was blended well and albeit this is really sugary, it was minimized. Then the floral smell of violet was the perfect choice because it is not a soft floral smell. Had it been the floral note was a lighter tone like gardenia or jasmine, it could have fade away. The aromatic properties of rhubarb casted strength in the fragile properties of citrus and pomegranate. Then musk made it more floral or similar to that smell. After the scent dried down, there I was thinking what made them call this “pomegranate”. The name is pomegranate because this is the most dominant fruity

        notes. It drifted from opening to the dry down making it too annoying. It was like this note tried to please me. I would like to characterize this perfume as too strong to be fruity. It is the sugary fruity and the humid floral. It is definitely not unisex for me. This is simply for women.

        The smell is uncomfortably dense which is similar to colognes which are for the youth demographic. Perhaps this is the best characteristic I can give. I just do not feel the presence of it to be something wearable. It is often too funny and unkempt to be floral fruity. The element of freshness is also not showcased. With all heavy notes such as pomegranate, violet and vanilla, no wonder the smell was not fresh.
