Basil, Pear, & Grapefruit by Marc Jacobs (2008) {New Fragrances}



Marc Jacobs has been steadily adding new scents to his collection of giant splash bottles that immediately evoke an era in which colognes were to be found in the bathroom as indispensable hygienic waters and liberally applied. Although these scents are not meant to be used literally as generously, they nevertheless invite a more ample perfuming gesture........

The thematic continues to be simple and relaxed and to be inspired by one main ingredient. After Rain, Grass, Cotton in the spring of 2006, quickly followed 6 months later by Ivy, Amber, Violet, the fashion designer will release Basil, Pear, and Grapefruit as part of his spring/summer 2008 fragrance collection.

Basil is described as a green musky cologne. Pear is amber-y and woody with a note of pear skin and pear fruit. Grapefruit is a sparkling treatment of the fruit in its pink variety, offering a dewy feel.

The scents are unisex. 

A 10 fl. oz. bottle will retail for 60 €.

  1. I did like his Amber, although I have not heard many things about them as a whole.
    Basil sounds interesting, no? The only predominantly basil frag I can recall is Manifesto.
