Hey Dolls! The summer heat is “doing the most” and the fragrances I wear during cooler months are simply too heavy for this time of year. Enter, the search. I mentioned in an earlier post that I’m attracted to packaging. Clean and minimal normally grabs me. I was in Sephora on several occasions, the last to pick up the a travel size fragrance; but wasn’t sure what I wanted. As I browsed, I spied the Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ fragrance collection. Of course the packaging drew me in – simple bottle, clean, minimal, black and white labeling. I’d been meaning to try several of the ‘REPLICA’ scents; but hadn’t made time.
What to choose? Beach Walk, Jazz Club, Lazy Sunday Morning, By the Fireplace? Don’t you love all of the names? I opted to try Lazy Sunday Morning and Beach Walk.
Lazy Sunday Morning is a floral fragrance combining notes of Aldehydes, Pear, Lily of the Valley, Iris, Rose Absolue, Orange Flower, White Musk, Indian Patchouli Oil, Ambrette Seeds Absolute. While a beautiful scent, as the label suggests, it reminded of the linen spray I use on freshly laundered sheets.
Up next, Beach Walk. Combining notes of Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk, Cedarwood, Benzoin, the scent is truly a mid-afternoon stroll along the beach. Jackpot! I should have known this Miami-born Doll would be in love the any fragrance named Beach Walk.
I purchased both a travel/purse, as well as full-size bottle.
Each fragrance is said “tell a story with every spritz,” evoking a memory of a special place and time, allowing you to “relive the magic.”
A little about the bottle …
“The silhouette of each ‘REPLICA’ bottle is inspired by classic apothecary jars, allowing the collection to be instantly identifiable. Each bottle carries a 100 percent cotton label, which is printed using black ink text and resembles the tags used on the clothing and accessories for the ‘REPLICA’ couture collection. The unique pumps are wrapped with a rope to symbolize the authentic reproduction of the original ‘REPLICA’ couture line.”
What’s me swoon? ‘REPLICA’ Beach Walk by Maison Margiela.
Until then, keep sharing the pretty,
