Garage scents: Our top picks from Replica by Maison Margiela

Say hello to From The Garden and goodbye to Matcha Meditation

Scents have the power to evoke memories, and Replica by Maison Margiela harnesses this by recreating memories through their fragrances.

This May 2024, Maison Margiela officially opens its first boutique in the Philippines, located on the ground level of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center in Makati City. The boutique houses its cult-favorite fragrances, including Beach Walk, By the Fireplace, Sailing Day, and Lazy Sunday Morning, to name a few.

The first edition of the fragrance line was launched back in 2010 with “Untitled,” a woody floral musk created by Daniela Andrier. Fast forward to 2023, “From The Garden” was released, created by Oliver Cresp, featuring notes of tomato leaf, geranium, and patchouli.

Replica is known for its photorealistic takes on fragrances, with descriptions that match the visuals the scents evoke. Here are some of our favorites from the brand:

Bubble Bath, from P5,150
Clean, soapy, and really fresh. If you like the scent of freshly washed laundry, this non-offensive fragrance is perfect for the office or hospital duty. It’s an easy-reach choice.

By The Fireplace, from P5,150
If you’re looking for a cozy date night scent, this one smells like smoking marshmallows on a warm night. It’s smoky, sweet, and cozy, brought by guaiac wood, chestnut, and vanilla.

Jazz Club, from P5,150
Another date night scent, but this one is a little more serious compared to By The Fireplace. Jazz Club is a boozy, leathery take on a speakeasy bar with tobacco undertones. This one is perfect for colder nights as the notes are on the warmer side.

Beach Walk, from P5,150
Created by Jacques Cavallier and Marie Salamagne, this scent gives major beach vibes reminiscent of sunblock. Notes of coconut, musk, ylang ylang, and lemon create a tropical state of mind.

On A Date, from P5,150
Imagine a wine tasting date. This fragrance perfectly captures the setting of dining by the grapevine with notes of grapes and undertones of roses. Perfect for a sunny afternoon date, this scent is floral, fruity, juicy, and totally unisex.

During the opening, the brand also launched its newest fragrance, From The Garden, which will be replacing Matcha Meditation on the roster. This new eau de toilette features notes of tomato leaf, green mandarin essence, geranium, and patchouli, making it a green, fresh scent.

Replica by Maison Margiela is located at Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
