Maison Margiela Replica Beachwalk is a fragrance that I absolutely loved the sound of as soon as I heard about it. I have been eager to get my hands on the various Maison Margiela Replica scents for a long time now and I’m so relieved that I’m not disappointed. The gorgeous bottles, the decadent scents and the timeless nature of this collection makes them a new firm favourite of mine.
Maison Margiela Replica Beachwalk Review
About the Replica collection: ‘Replica’ embodies the interest of Maison Martin Margiela for vintage clothing and accessories. The authenticity and the charm of these pieces, discovered around the world, remain identical to the originals. Each garment is faithfully reproduced and carries a special label explaining its origin, function and period.
“‘Replica’ is an expression of our continuing reflection on the garment and more broadly, our creative process, in this case defined by the original idea of timelessness: a garment from the past can still be modern today and even tomorrow. It is this concept that we wanted to translate into fragrances, re-transcribing the scents of our collective memory.” – Maison Martin Margiela
About Maison Margiela Replica Beachwalk: A stroll along the ocean. Feet sink into the sand. Waves brush the skin. The sun at its zenith radiates the beach. “Beach Walk” evokes the memory of a summer day.
Fresh as the spray of the ocean, bergamot, lemon and pink pepper are instantly fused. Radiant and sensual ylang ylang follows, illuminating the addictive scents of coconut milk, musk and heliotrope. The scent is long-lasting, luxurious and totally unique.
“Once united, these three notes create an accord with an almost maternal softness” – says Jacques Cavallier. Unctuous odours that reveal just a hint of saltiness.
The Bottle: With a silhouette inspired by classical apothecary jars, the bottle used for the three fragrances fits perfectly within the codes of Maison Martin Margiela. A cotton label, resembling the tags used on clothing and accessories for the ‘Replica’ capsule collection, identifies each fragrance. The same label concept is carried onto the packaging.
The style of these bottles fits perfectly with my home decor. I’m absolutely obsessed with industrial and almost gothic like apothecary style and these beautiful bottles are just begging to be out on display. This isn’t a fragrance that you will purchase and then store away in a drawer to use occasionally. This is pure style in a bottle. Gorgeously scented and perfectly packaged, what more could you really want in a perfume? I’ll bring you the low-down on the rest of the collection as soon as possible.
