Marc Jacobs has launched Lemon Splash, the latest in the brand's limited edition Splash collection:
MARC JACOBS Lemon captures a slice of summer with the fresh, bright scent of sun-drenched citrus. Deliciously vibrant and sophisticated, lemon revitalizes the senses with its crispness and vitality. Fragrant, light and refreshing—a burst of sparkling sunshine comprised of the finest, most elegant ingredients. At the heart of the fragrance is iced Italian lemon orpur, the purest form of oil hand-pressed from fragrant Italian lemons. This crisp citrus note mingles with mandarin and honeysuckle to create a sweet radiance. Cotton musk, white vetiver and spring-water amber round out the balance of notes with smooth sensuality.
Marc Jacobs Lemon Splash is available now at Nordstrom in 300 ml ($68); Rain Splash and Cucumber Splash have also been relaunched.

Update: another description of Italian Cypress, via Selfridges ~
Is a perfume dedicated to a gentlemen of the 70’s, “the kind of man that’s not easy to find anymore” Tom Ford. Italian Cypress is an elegant fragrance achieving the perfect balance between tradition and innovation. Vibrant top notes of mandarin and bergamot blend with galbanum and Moroccan spearmint. While clear accents of clove buds and basil, labdanum, Icelandic moss create the robust essence of Italian quality and luxury for the refined individual.
