Maison Margiela Replica collection

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 …

Acqua dell’Elba…

  Whenever I’m away on vacation as a treat for myself I buy something that is strictly available within the region I’m traveling. While I was in Siena and walking up and down Via Banchi di Spora, I kept smelling this wonderful scent every time I walked by this mysteriously calm looking store named Acqua Dell’Elba. After awhile I realized that they spray a scent out on to the street and it smelled like clean fresh breeze and ocean. I couldn’t help but close my eyes and think of walking on a warm sandy beach.
