From the moment I first smelled this perfume, I knew we were a perfect match. I have never had a fragrance that so wonderfully embodies hygge and all that is cozy. I have been on the hunt for a winter perfume for quite some time now, and this one made the number one spot on my Christmas wish-list as soon as I tried it at Sephora.
REPLICA By the Fireplace by Maison Margiela is one of the warmest and sweetest fragrances on the market, with just a hint of smoke. It’s a gender neutral eau de toilette that paints a pretty picture.
Scene: a lone cabin in the woods, covered by the fluffiest layer of snow. Evergreen trees and mountains line the background. A gentle tail of smoke dances out of the stone chimney. I’m brought back to my time in Banff with just a spritz.
What the mind can’t imagine (or remember) with just a scent. Maison Margiela’s REPLICA is a line of fragrances that embody particular moments of bygone eras. “By the Fireplace” is a reproduction of a mountain resort area in the French alps, circa 1972.
For the most complex fragrance, give this winter perfume a go. For him and/or her.
