Parisian fashion house Maison Margiela has been a name to know for its sartorial excellence since its birth in 1988. The eponymous label was launched by Belgian designer Martin Margiela, whose creations in men’s and womenswear have pushed the boundaries of design with it’s deconstructing, reinventing and redefining of the male and female silhouette.
Martin Margiela’s first taste of working in the fashion industry was in 1984 when he started working at Jean Paul Gaultier as a design assistant. Four years later and the Maison Margiela label launched into the luxury fashion market. Not fulfilled with the pressures of one label, Martin simultaneously becomes womenswear director at Hermes later in 1997.
To be sure, when it came to launching fragrance, then, Maison Margiela‘s offering was always going to be something different – and the Maison Margiela Replica fragrances have seduced bloggers, perfume-lovers and fashionistas alike since they were first unveiled. Captured in bottles reminiscent of apothecary jars, with cotton labels echoing tags on the clothing, they have been created to evoke familiar scents and moments in different locations. As blogger and influencer InTheFrow comments: ‘Maison Margiela have nailed each and every scent in the collection – obviously setting out to replicate a fragrance that many can relate to, whether it’s a walk along the beach on your holidays, smothered in coconut sunscreen, or waking up in fresh sheets and smelling that wonderful, clean scent.’
