A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

My Solitary November 2016 Favorite

on December 8, 2016

Hello again!

I have gone back and forth about my November favorites – mostly I was feeling a bit lazy about writing this post. There is not a good reason why – I obviously had a new favorite thing to share. Just… lazy.

The last thing I needed was yet another perfume. However during the Sephora VIB sale I caved and bought the Maison Margiela Replica Perfume in Jazz Club. This is one sexy scent. Martin Margiela designed the Replica scents to be a “reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods.” I feel like this is exactly what a 1920’s jazz club would smell like.

When first applied, it is warm and sweet with a hint of vanilla and rum. As it dries down, I catch whiffs of whiskey, leather and tobacco. This is a very masculine scent that works incredibly well with my chemistry, similar to the effect of the Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme mentioned in last months favorites. I cannot stop sniffing my wrists and clothing when I wear this. A couple sprays last 8-10 hours without needing to reapply.

Jazz Club and Noir Pour Femme will likely be my go-to scents this winter – they are everything I have been looking for. Prior to purchasing this, I tested out the Elizabeth and James Bourbon and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Stash. Both just missed the mark on what I was looking for – the Bourbon dried down to just vanilla and the Stash was just a bit too spicy.

I purchased Jazz Club in the 0.34oz spray, but I have a feeling that I will make the splurge on the 3.4oz bottle before long.

Have you tried this or any of the other Replica scents? What are your thoughts?
