5 Best Replica Perfumes for Fall and Winter


Replica Jazz Club

Replica Jazz Club

Replica Jazz Club

Best Overall

Scent Profile: Sweet, Spicy

Longevity: Average, 5 – 6 hours

Season: Fall and winter

Cost ($ – $$$): $$

Released: 2013

Replica Jazz Club is a sweet, warm, boozy, and spicy fragrance and one of the best Replica perfumes for fall and winter. It has gathered a large following of fans and continues to grow in popularity every year.

The opening of Jazz Club is sweet and spicy citrus, with warm rum and tobacco immediately present as well. Jazz Club dries down maintaining the sweet warm vanilla rum notes offset by fresh spicy notes and tobacco.

Jazz Club is an interesting combination of warm and sweet notes, fresh and spicy notes, and dry and earthy notes. Anyone who enjoys warm, sweet, spicy fragrances should give this one a smell!

Like many Replica fragrances, the longevity and projection are moderate. This one will get you noticed, but it won’t fill the room or be overpowering.

From Maison Margiela, “Jazz Club conveys two sensations: the elegant smoky scent of cigars and the exquisite aromas of a glass of amber Rum.” [1]

  • Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Neroli, Lemon
  • Middle Notes: Rum, Java Vetiver Oil, Clary Sage
  • Base Notes: Tobacco Leaf, Vanilla Bean, Styrax

Pros

  • Unique, complex fragrance
  • Smells expensive

Cons

  • Moderate projection, may have to apply more than similar fragrances.


Replica By The Fireplace

Replica By The Fireplace

Best Overall Runner-Up

Scent Profile: Sweet, Spicy, Woody

Longevity: Average, 6 – 8 hours

Season: Fall and winter

Cost ($ – $$$): $$

Released: 2015

Replica By The Fireplace is one of the best Replica perfumes for fall and winter. This fragrance is warm and cozy, and takes you to a winter cabin in the woods, roasting marshmallows over a fire while snow falls.

By The Fireplace opens with strong smoky woody notes. Don’t judge this one by the opening, as the smoky note can be intense and even unpleasant if you aren’t expecting it. I actually didn’t like this fragrance the first time I tried it but am a big fan now.

Once the smokiness of the opening calms down, this fragrance evolves into a warm, sweet, cozy, and inviting scent. The dry down is rich, deep, warm, and sweet with burning wood lingering in the background.

In terms of performance, By The Fireplace falls into the average range for both longevity and projection. I get a moderate lifespan of 4 – 6 hours and moderate projection, which I actually don’t mind for a bold-scented fragrance like this.

From Maison Margiela, “By the Fireplace conveys the smell of smoky wood burning in the chimney and the addictive scent of chestnuts grilling in the chimney.” [2]

  • Top Notes:  Cloves, Pink Pepper, Orange Blossom
  • Middle Notes: Chestnut, Guaiac Wood, Juniper
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Peru Balsam, Cashmeran

Pros

  • Unique fragrance, with its combination of smoky wood and sweet toasted marshmallow.

Cons

  • The strong smoky opening can cause an unpleasant first impression.


Replica Autumn Vibes

Replica Autumn Vibes

Best Photorealistic

Scent Profile: Woody, Spicy

Longevity: Average, 6 – 8 hours

Season: Fall and winter

Cost ($ – $$$): $$

Released: 2021

Replica Autumn Vibes is the fragrance for those who are looking for the full fall spice experience without any sweetness or gourmand vibes. 

Autumn Vibes is like walking through a forest in the fall with leaves on the ground, with the perfect blend of fall spices added in. This fragrance is very much a spicy woody scent that is unmistakably autumn.

The longevity is average, with moderate projection. After a full day of wearing this one, I can still easily smell it on my skin, though the projection quickly becomes mild within a few hours of wear.

Autumn Vibes is worth a smell if you are a fan of fall spices and woody notes!

From Maison Margiela, “Autumn Vibes is a woody spicy fragrance, slightly resinous and earthy, that captures the feeling of escapism in an autumnal forest.” [3]

  • Top Notes: Cardamom, Pink Pepper
  • Middle Notes: Nutmeg, Maple, Carrot Seeds
  • Base Notes: Cedar, Moss, Fir Balsam

Pros

  • Realistic fall fragrance, spicy and woody.

Cons

  • Some find it too photorealistic.


Replica Coffee Break

Replica Coffee Break

Replica Coffee Break

Best Fresh

Scent Profile: Fresh, Sweet

Longevity: Average, 5 – 6 hours

Season: Fall and winter

Cost ($ – $$$): $$

Released: 2019

Replica Coffee Break is an intriguing, complex fragrance, and also one of Maison Margiela’s more popular creations. This is a fresher take on a cozy fall and winter fragrance.

Coffee Break opens with lavender, along with fresh spicy notes and subtle creamy coffee in the background. The coffee note doesn’t stick around for very long, and Coffee Break dries down into a soft, creamy, clean vanilla.

Some people perceive Coffee Break as a sweet gourmand, but I get too much freshness and lavender vibes for me to consider it a gourmand fragrance. To me, it has masculine leaning fresh, clean “cologne” vibes on top of a sweet vanilla base.

Coffee Break is definitely an interesting fragrance and worth a try! Be sure to be open-minded with this one, as it is one that is perceived in many different ways by different people.

From Maison Margiela, “A shot of pleasure, a perfect blend of the aroma of roasted coffee beans and milk mousse, contrasted by a Fougere signature scent to capture the excitement of a modern city.” [4]

  • Top Notes:  Coffee, Red Apple, Lemon
  • Middle Notes: Lavender, Spearmint, Orange Flower
  • Base Notes: Milk Mousse, Sandalwood, Cedarwood

Pros

  • Complex, unique fragrance.

Cons

  • Strong lavender note may be surprising given its name.

Replica Whispers in the Library

Replica Whispers in the Library is a warm, woody fragrance with a hint of dark vanilla. It is the perfect fragrance for settling down on a cozy chair, wrapped in a blanket, with a good book on a cold day.

Whispers in the Library opens with peppery wood notes, with the dark ambery vanilla present in the background. This is a well-balanced cozy, woody vanilla fragrance. The vanilla isn’t too sweet, and the woody notes aren’t overpowering.

From Maison Margiela, “Whispers in the Library conveys the familiar scent of books and the sensation when you spend hours reading at a wooden desk.” [5]

  • Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Orange Flower, Patchouli 
  • Middle Notes: Cypriol Oil, Siam Benzoin, Tonka Bean
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Cedarwood, Vetiver
