Maison Martin Margiela Replica Perfumes

What It Is: They say scent is one of our strongest connections to time and place – and these ‘Replica’ perfumes from Maison Martin Margiela would seem to indicate as much. Each perfume is designed to capture a particularly vivid scent map of not only a place, but a time. Housed in retro apothecary-style bottles, each scent has a very distinct feel that carries through all the way to actual shade of the perfume. Surround yourself with the lush notes of a Flower Market, including rose petals mixed with cedar and moss. Or, channel those childhood memories with a single spritz of the sugary, caramel-and-apple-laced Funfair Evening meant to evoke the Santa Monica Pier in 1994. Finally, feel forever young when you dab on some Beach Walk, which features summery layers of bergamot, lemon, pink pepper, and ylang ylang.

Who It’s For: A close friend’s milestone birthday, particularly if they were born during one of the inspirational years featured on the bottles (’72, ’93, ’11). Your summer-loving mom, to freshen up her fragrance wardrobe. Your bridesmaids, so each girl has a signature scent as she struts down the aisle.

What It Costs: $100 a bottle

Where It’s At: The Bay
