Replica by Maison Martin Margiela

A certain scent can instantly transport you back to a fond memory or place. Since 1994 Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela has been launching a new scent to form the Replica fragrance collection.
 Each fragrance note is carefully hand picked to represent a time, place or emotion. Each individual fragrance is labelled detailing it's source and period of the original item.
 There will definitely be a fragrance in the collection which you can make a personal connection with.

100ml elegant but totally unisex glass bottles with cloth label detailing inspiration and fragrance description.

Flower Market

 Top notes of crushed leaves and freesia. Middle notes of sambac, jasmine, tuberose and grasse rose, base notes of cedar wood and oak moss.

Smells ever so softly floral, almost soapy like fresh linen.

 Top notes of Sweet apple, pear and star anise. Middle notes of Morrocan rose, Egyptian orange blossom and marshmallow. Base notes of amber, white musk, vanilla and caramel.
A sweet smelling scent with a smokey undertone (I guess that's meant to resemble the hotdogs).

Soapy smelling but with a freshness. Lily of the valley is the standout note.

 Top notes of Bergamot, pink pepper, lemon. Middle notes of Ylang ylang, Heliotrope and coconut milk. Base notes of musk, cedar wood and benzoin.

Smells exactly like suntan lotion and holidays. The coconut milk is the strongest scent.
