I’m not a huge fan of changing my perfumes. I wear the same couple of perfumes for years and I hardly venture out to try new ones. The last time I “changed it up” was when I was in Italy a few years back and I was introduced to Acqua dell’ Elba classic. I think this year is going to be another year for me to revamp the perfume department. I have found an entire line up of scents that I want to add to my beauty closet. Meet Maison Margiela Replica collection.
The idea behind this collection is to trigger a memory in our brain using scents. The entire packaging and labeling for the bottles are all created around this idea.
The first time I tried one of the Replica perfumes was when I came across the “Beach Walk” scent in the roller bottles. I love buying mini roller and spray bottles as they are small enough for carrying in purses and to take on vacations and if I end up not liking the scent I don’t feel bad wasting a $30 roller bottle. The beach walk scent is coconuts, salty breeze at the beach and lemons.
“Crafted scent that capture the moments, periods and locations essential to memories.”
On one of my trips to Sephora I decided to checkout and see if any other Replica scents come in the mini size bottles and I found this amazing discovery gift set exclusive to Sephora. The set is for Men and includes “Jazz Club“, “At the Barber” and “By the Fireplace“. The last scent smells amazing! Orange flowers, vanilla and chestnut. It reminds me of when I was a kid, visiting my grandparents and they had the fire going on in their fireplace. They used almond shells as kindling and it made the fire smell amazing.
Going back to this set…it is for Men but the “By the Fireplace” scent is unisex and the other two scents are very light with geranium essence, lavender, vanilla and pink pepper notes. I recommend layering the scents so it doesn’t feel too masculine or going lighter on application.
If you are inspired by this post and want a little extra help to trigger your favourite memories, I recommend to start your search for your favourite Replica scent by checking out the Replica Memory Box from Sephora. The box comes with 10 sample sized bottles of their bespoken scents and at a great price point.
Happy scent shopping!
