Maison Martin Margiela Sailing Day captures the excitement of jumping into the ocean from a sailboat. The fragrance was inspired by a memorable laid-back time spent on a holiday at the island of Paros in Greece. It combines the cold, fresh saltiness of the sea and the iodine-rich silk of seaweed. It is a fabulous twist on an aquatic style of perfume because after the typical ozonic aldehydic opening, sweet salicylates are juxtaposed against a briny seaweed and ambergris base.
Sailing Day features top notes of aldehyde, marine notes, juniper and red pepper; middle notes of coriander, orris, rose and salicylate; and base notes of seaweed, ambergris, amber wood and cedar. It is an eau de toilette, edt.
Replica by Maison Martin Margiela is the reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods.
Fragrantica: "Perfectly encompasses the vibe of wearing an all-linen outfit standing by the ocean waiting to aboard a boat. Nice and fresh..."
Fragrantica: "A swashbuckling, yacht-clubbing, summery scent that inspires a certain lightness of spirit. This perfume is less of a subtle nod to the sea and more of an overt aquatic celebration."
