Replica Beach Walk is a light, creamy coconut and warm floral, beach-type fragrance.

This is summer in a bottle!

If you’re a fan of beachy, coconut, sun tan lotion fragrances, this one is worth a try!

Replica Beach Walk does a fantastic job of creating a nostalgic summer, warm beach, laying in the sun type of vibe. This is a light and airy yellow floral, creamy coconut, and musk fragrance.

To me, Beach Walk is very much a solar floral and coconut fragrance. Some pick up on the citrus in the opening, but I immediately get the tropical coconut and yellow floral notes. 

The coconut milk note is light, creamy, and sweet, and the floral notes aren’t overpowering, but add a perfect warm tropical touch.

If you’re a fan of beachy, coconut, sun tan lotion fragrances, this one is worth a try!

The longevity and projection of Replica fragrances tends to range from below-average to average, and Beach Walk is no different. I get around 5 hours of wear with moderate projection for the first few hours.

Beach Walk is a very easy-to-wear fragrance, light and inoffensive, making it very versatile.

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Pink Pepper 
  • Middle Notes: Ylang-Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope

Replica Bubble Bath is a luxurious, spa-like, clean fragrance.

This unisex fragrance features notes of clean soap bubbles, lavender, coconut milk, and white musk.

Bubble Bath has impressive longevity for a Replica fragrance, lasting over 8 hours.

If you are looking for a clean, just-out-of-the-bath type of fragrance, Replica Bubble Bath is it.

Bubble Bath opens with clean fresh notes of soap bubbles and lavender. There is a soft floral and creamy side to this fragrance as well, from the jasmine, rose, and coconut milk notes.

Bubble Bath smells like a high-end soap found in a luxury hotel. Although there are floral notes, this is very much a unisex fragrance.

The longevity on this one is better than many Replica fragrances, it easily lasts an 8-hour day, though it does quiet down around 5 hours in. 

With gentle projection, Bubble Bath is a very versatile fragrance, an easy grab for daytime wear in the spring and summer months.

Replica Matcha Meditation is a unique blend of sweet citrus, florals, and tea notes.

This is a sweet fragrance that also has some vibrance and brightness.

Replica Matcha Meditation is a unique fragrance, both citrusy and green, and creamy and sweet. It’s a great choice for spring and summer days when you want a sweet fragrance that also has some brightness and life.

Matcha Meditation opens with bright, sweet citrus with a touch of powdery orange blossom and earthy green tea. The citrus and florals remain the most prominent notes from opening to drydown.

Throughout the drydown, Matcha Meditation remains a somewhat complex blend of citrus, white florals, and fresh green tea, all enveloped by a base of sweet white chocolate. 

I struggle to accurately describe Matcha Meditation, as it’s the type of fragrance that can smell a bit different with every sniff. Sometimes the citrus is strongest, other times the white florals stand out, and then at other times the green tea and matcha make an appearance along with the creamy white chocolate.

Matcha Meditation has average longevity, lasting around 5 – 6 hours. With its average projection and bright, smooth scent profile, Matcha Meditation is fairly versatile as well.

  • Top Notes:  Green Tea, Mandarin, Bergamot
  • Middle Notes: Matcha Tea, Orange Blossom, Jasmine
  • Base Notes: White Chocolate, Moss, Benzoin

✓ Pros

  • Unique blend of sweet citrus, florals, and tea notes
  • Versatile

✗ Cons

  • The citrus and florals tend to overpower the tea notes
  • Mediocre longevity and projection

Replica Under the Lemon Trees is a bright, clean, unisex, citrus fragrance.

This isn’t a sweet candy-like citrus fragrance, but a fresh, clean, and green type of citrus fragrance.

Replica Under the Lemon Trees is clean, unisex, and very much a citrus fragrance.

This bright and fresh fragrance opens with vibrant lemon/lime citrus notes. There is also a crisp herbal freshness from the cardamom and green tea and a slight green woodiness from the petitgrain.

This isn’t a sweet candy-like citrus fragrance, but a fresh, clean, and green type of citrus fragrance.

The citrus notes and green tea remain strong throughout the drydown, with the soft, musky woody notes remaining present as well. 

Under the Lemon Trees is a surprisingly strong performer for a fresh citrus fragrance. In my experience, it lasts a full 8-hour day and then some, becoming weaker as the day progresses, similar to other Replica fragrances.

This is a very versatile fragrance, with its bright and clean scent profile; an easy-reach daily wear type of fragrance.

  • Top Notes: Kalamansi Lime, Petitgrain, Cardamom
  • Middle Notes: Green Tea, Mate, Coriander
  • Base Notes: Cedarwood, Rock Rose, Musk

✓ Pros

  • Bright and clean citrus fragrance

FAQ

Why didn’t you include the new Replica fragrance, From the Garden?

I tested From the Garden, hoping to include it in this article. However, it has way too much of a niche vibe to it and will only appeal to a small percentage of people in my opinion. It is a strange blend of aromatic, green, spicy, and floral notes, and not something that I would recommend as a blind buy at all.

Are Replica fragrances unisex?

Most definitely! Maison Margiela markets all of the Replica fragrances as unisex. As always, remember that any fragrance is unisex, and wear whatever you enjoy! To me, some are more traditionally unisex, such as Under the Lemon Trees and Bubble Bath.

Are Replica fragrances niche or designer fragrances?

Maison Margiela is a designer brand that also designs clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. However, the Replica fragrance line does have a niche fragrance vibe to it.

Can these fragrances be worn year-round, or are they only suitable for spring and summer?

Always feel free to experiment and wear any fragrance during whatever season feels right to you! These are suggestions for spring and summer based on the notes that are traditionally associated with these seasons. However, these fragrances are fantastic choices year-round as well, whenever the mood strikes!

Can I sample Replica fragrances before purchasing a full-size bottle? 

Yes! I’ve included links to retailers who sell samples for most of the fragrances listed here. I often buy from these sellers, as I sample too many fragrances to be buying full bottles regularly.

If you’re looking for fragrances that embody the spring and summer seasons, Springtime in a Park and Beach Walk are worth checking out.
