When it comes to fragrances, finding something suitable for autumn has always been a bit tricky. You may have seen my review of the new fragrance by Diesel, BAD which i described as ideal for Saturday afternoons and casual mid-week events. I’ve still been searching for an evening fragrance. Then I came across Maison Margiela Replica Jazz Club which I was recently sent. This is a new brand to me, I found this in the sophisticated scent of cocktails and cigars, bottled into one very luxurious fragrance called Jazz Club.
The Replica collection of fragrances created by Maison Margiela, are unique scents and each fragrance in the range has been designed to mimic a time and place such as Brooklyn Jazz Club, At The Barbers and also a Unisex fragrance which mimics being by a Fireside.
The design of the bottle is rather quirky, the design does not include a lid, which gives it a unique, classic feel. The simple design with the white rope tied around the neck of the bottle alone creates something special which makes the fragrance stand out and catch the eye. The lack of lid and simple design really adds a vintage, high end feel which perfectly sums up the classy scents in the range.
The fragrance is a unique scent with top notes of; Pink Pepper, Primofiore Lemon and Neroli Oil.
The heart notes consist of; Rum, Clary Sage Oil and Java Vetiver Oil.
It has base notes of; Tobacco Leaf, Vanilla Bean and Styrax Resin.
I personally feel the notes of Pepper, Vanilla and Tobacco are the most prominent which creates a woody, oriental and seductive scent perfect for evenings.
The fragrances in the replica collection retail at £85.00 for a 100ml bottle (no other sizes are available). Although £85.00 can appear quite expensive for a fragrance, the product is unique and the smell alone is so luxurious the price tag is justifiable. The 100ml bottle will make this scent last a long time, provided you use it sensibly. The cost is comparable to that of some other leading fragrances available, some 50ml bottles having an RRP of over £40.
I’ve been really impressed by this fragrance, without doubt, I’ll be using this on a regular basis. If you’re looking for a scent that’s well suited for autumn, be sure to give this a try! The Replica range by Maion Margiela are available to buy from stores such a Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Feel Unique. I’d love to hear any comments you have about this fragrance.
