The Margiela REPLICA Fragrance Wardrobe is meant to complement the designer’s clothing line by the same name. The fragrances run the gamut from candy-sweet to dark and smoky. I recently got to try the fragrances in person, and found only two of them that work with my personal chemistry and tastes.
My favorites are Flower Market and Jazz Club.
Flower Market is an unexpected favorite. I am typically NOT a fan of florals. I don’t like cloying sweet smells, and typically shy away from anything featuring a chemically produced floral scent. But this fragrance is fresh and beautiful, and really DOES harken memories of walking through the Flower Mart (for me, in Downtown LA)… possibly in Paris.
Jazz Club is smoky and sexy. This was my first choice because I absolutely love a dark, smoky fragrance. Although this fragrance is classified as ‘masculine’ I find that it works very well with my chemistry. This fragrance ‘warms’ on me, and adjusts throughout the day. Every time I wear it, I get compliments.
Now what’s awesome, is that I can layer these two to get something unique and unexpected. I put Jazz Club on the bottom, then layer Flower Market on top after about 60 seconds. The result is nothing short of amazing. I find it funny (and fitting) that Jazz Club is masculine and Flower Market is feminine. So maybe my spirit is a little bit of both. 🙂
