Introducing the Replica fragrances and carrying on a discussion I started a couple of weeks ago about fragrances and memories.
From Maison Martin Margiela, are the Replica fragrances. Priced at £80 for 100ml, they’re all enticing in their own unique way, from Funfair Evening that smells like sweet candyfloss and fairgrounds at dusk, to Lazy Sunday Morning that smells like fresh sheets and has a softness to it.
As part of the Fenwick Fragrance Event we were asked to describe and name our own fragrance. The team really liked my idea (which I’ll keep to myself just in case I ever gt the opportunity to create it in the future – never say never and all that) and I was so excited to pick one of the Replica fragrances as my prize. I really like the simple, minimalist design and the whole ethos behind evoking memories and familiar places through the fragrances.
After smelling every single one, even Jazz Club which is an incredible male fragrance that’s a mix of heady cocktails, musk and a hint of tobacco. You have to smell it and in fact, I want to pop by and have another sniff just to remind myself how nice it is! I finally decided on Flower Market*, a very girly floral scent that has a mix of different notes. As it settles on your skin throughout the day, you’ll get a mix of rose, jasmine, peach, freesia and cedarwood and you’ll feel like you’re bustling through a market, passing all the crisp petals and bright colours – even if you’re sitting at work and it’s raining outside!
If you’re local to the North East, Fenwick is the only place to stock them – so do pop in and say hello to the lovely people who work there who will be more than happy to help you and will ensure you leave smelling amazing (and wanting to buy several new scents!)
