Maison Martin Margiela Replica By The Fireplace was inspired by a winter in Chamonix in 1971. Imagine warming yourself by a cozy spot beside the fireplace watching the chestnuts roast while the cold, blowing wind is swirling around the ski resort. Warm, crackling flames and cold, frost-covered windows. This is the perfect unisex winter fragrance!!
It features top notes of pink pepper, orange flower petals and clove oil; middle notes of chestnut accord, gaiac wood oil and cade oil; and base notes of vanilla accord, Peru balsam and cashmeran. By the Fireplace is an eau de toilette, edt.
Replica by Maison Martin Margiela is the reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods.
From Basenotes - "I adore this so much. As others have said, it's quite a unique smoky woody scent, and it has a fascinating underlying balsamic note that makes my heart swell. By the Fireplace is a perfect winter/end of autumn fragrance."
From Musings of a Muse - "very warm, rich vanilla accord note that plays a dominate note in the fragrance combined with a very smoky chestnut note. For me it smells like smoky almost burnt marshmallows."
