I first smelled 212 Splash when I had my arms around the neck of someone’s young step-mother in a friendly hug.  It was a lazy, hot summer day spent lounging around a pool.  Five years later, those same emotions of comfort, familiarity, kindness, and a temporary (yet oh-so-cherished) state of vacation are what I feel when I smell this fragrance.  The citrus and herbal juniper berry create a breezy, super-fresh top accord that is great for hot or humid weather.   The floral-fruity heart is uber-feminine without being too sweet or too much like every other fragrance on the market, and the slug of musk in the base is round and comforting, soft and safe, just like the arms of a friendly young mother.   The subtle addition of dry woods offers this perfume a confidence-boosting foundation.   212 Splash makes me feel uplifted, open, beautiful, and fresh. ♦♦♦♦ Four stars.
