If you’ve been reading my posts for a while you now how obsessed I am with the perfumes. Here is a review of my new signature scent.
In the summer I discovered that Maison Margiela also makes incredible perfumes. I saw a few influencers posting about them a while back, but because I rarely fall into the hype I never really thought much of it. One day I was looking for a new summer scent and I came across the Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk. I fell in love with the scent and the whole idea of these perfumes. This line of perfumes is called Replica and the basic idea behind them is to capture unique moments and places and put them in a perfume bottle.
My signature scent has always been the D&G The one or the Dolce Garden, but I wanted to find something stronger, more woody and powerful. I did some research on best woody but sweet perfumes and I came across this one. When I was looking at the Replica Beach Walk one I was also really into Replica By The Fireplace, but I decided to wait a while and maybe buy it in the fall if I still feel like it. Fall came and I still couldn’t get it out of my mind so I took a gamble and ordered the full sized perfume instead of just the sample size.
At first, it caught me off guard because it was something that I’ve never smelled before. It has a very strong, very autumnal top note. It almost burns a little when you smell it because of the intense top notes of pink pepper and the cloves. After the perfume sits on the skin for a while, the middle notes start to come out. The woodiness of guaiac wood, the even more autumnal feel of the chesnut and the more subtle scent of juniper create a lovely, deep and strong smell. The base notes are what make the perfume perfect. The strong smell of sweet vanilla combined with the Peru balsam and cashmeran will stay on the skin all day long and create that cozy, warm vibe for you.
It’s a strong smell for sure, given that it’s a unisex Maison Margiela Replica perfume and appropriate even for men, but it’s not overbearing or too masculine. If I would have to describe what kind of a woman wears this perfume it would have to be a strong, independent woman that takes no sh*t from anyone and is definitely a boss ass b*tch. She wears lots of brown tones and lots of leather paired with high heels. A true independent business woman.
I immediately fell in love with the scent. It’s my new everyday perfume and I will continue wearing it into the winter and maybe even into the spring and summer for nights or dates out if I’ll feel like it. Maybe I even get to like it so much I’ll wear it through the whole year!
