Replica Collection

 

REPRODUCTION OF FAMILIAR SCENTS AND MOMENTS OF VARYING LOCATIONS AND PERIODS. A COLLECTION OF FRAGRANCES FOR WOMEN AND MEN.

A replication of scents that speak to everyone, instantly evoking images and positive emotions echo our own personal history. The ‘Replica’ perfume collection captures the olfactory moments essential to memories.

The first three ‘Replica’ fragrances resonate with the scents of a sun drenched beach in Calvi, candy at a funfair evening in Santa Monica and freshly cut flowers in Parisian flower Market.

With these three new creations, Lazy Sunday Morning, Promenade in the Gardens and Jazz Club, the Maison’s first male fragrance, Maison Martin Margiela invites you to discover a different side to the collection.

Flower Market

Freshly cut flowers, crisp petals, buckets and vases brimming with water, leaves crushed on the floor, a multitude of floral compositions… Maison Martin Margiela captures the delicate fragrance of the flower market.

Funfair Evening

In the warm night air, the sound of laughter and playful melodies. The obscurity is broken by splashes of multicoloured neon. Colour reigns vibrant and explosive. An odour of candy fills the air. From the first breath, the ambiance of the funfair comes to mind.

Jazz Club

The tradition has been immortalised through the generations, handing down the address of this Brooklyn jazz club. An anthology of classic notes and coppery tones, between deep armchairs and a handful of bar stools, with subdued lighting reflected on the piano where some cocktails linger, wafting their liquory notes.
