The perfect summer scent – Replica Beach Walk

The perfect summer scent – Replica Beach Walk

Today I’m back with a different, a bit more editorial post. I was really inspired by this scent that I ordered so I decided to do a little shoot based on it.

I was doing some research about summer scents because my current favorite, the D&G Dolce Garden is more of a nighttime/winter scent for me. I came across the Maison Margiela perfumes. I was really drawn towards this one, not only because I was looking for a summer scent but also because of the story behind it.

All of the Maison Margiela perfumes from the replica collection come with a background story. The main idea of a scent are photos and emotions of certain memories that are carefully transformed into a perfume. This one, Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk is basically a memory of a beach walk in Calvi, Italy preserved in a perfume. It’s a really light scent that takes you right back to the beach and makes you daydream about your next vacation.

The bottle is a really simple design that resembles vintage pharmacy style bottles with all the information written on a piece of cotton fabric.

The most noticeable notes of this scent are definitely coconut, ylang-ylang and muck. It also contains top notes of bergamot, pink pepper and lemon. The middle notes are one of my favorite combos ever – the ylang-ylang, heliotrope and coconut. The base is also right up my alley with musk, cedar and benzoin.

That’s it for today’s post, don’t forget to follow me on instagram and read my last post.
