Maison Martin Margiela Replica Jazz Club EDT
One of the most modern and avant-garde labels today, Maison Martin Margiela, have expanded their product line with the introduction of their first men’s fragrance, Replica Jazz Club. The fragrance is part of the Replica series, defined by the design house itself as a “reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods.”
The setting here is a nameless smoke-filled Brooklyn bar, with its haziness and sense of danger serving as inspiration for the scent. It is a mix of jazz music, cigars, cocktails and stolen glances. The fragrance is both flirty and masculine, with its thickness perfect for the colder months to come and all the holiday parties you will be attending.
The scent kicks off with a spice bomb of rosy pink peppercorn, fresh primofiore lemon and light yet bitter Neroli oil. This energising combination then makes way for a succulent blend of light rum and clary sage and java vetiver oils, reminiscent of the intoxicating ambiance of a smoky bar room. The base notes include tobacco leaves, vanilla beans and styrax resins. All of these work together to create the perfect balance of liquor and leather, making sure that your scent will be one to remember.
Never ones to overlook the design aspect of a product, Margiela have made sure to present the fragrance in an appealing yet minimalistic package. The fluid is a deep, rich orange, reminiscent of whiskey and rum, and the bottle is a simple sprayer with a small vintage-style sticker, presenting the brand and content. The label concisely describes the feel and purpose of the fragrance – helpful when you need to verbalise your thoughts when choosing your scent for the day.
It is the perfect addition to your evening scents; both rugged and refined and simultaneously reminiscent of the unrestrained parties of the past. With this fragrance, you will be sure to make an impression these coming holidays.
