Maison Martin Margiela’s latest launch is Bubble Bath from the Replica line and I was super excited to try it out!
The Bubble Bath fragrance is described by Replica as a ‘bottled memory of comforting, clean accords’ made with delicate fresh top notes of soap and bergamot; middle notes of lavender, jasmine and rose; and base notes of white musk, coconut, and patchouli.
My thoughts on the scent…
In my opinion, this scent smells very fresh, light and airy – just like the name of the fragrance states, the scent resembles to the ‘memory of an intimate moment of relaxation in a foaming bath’. It truly leaves you smelling like fresh-out-of-bath skin with a coconut and aquatic tone to it. However, to wear this fragrance, you need to be into very soft scented perfumes that don’t smell like traditional perfumes.
When you first spray, you instantly get the soapy note – it’s not a floral soap note, quite literally the smell of traditional soap. Then, at the heart of the scent, you get the floral notes such as lavender, jasmine and rose – the floral scent won’t overwhelm you; it will only enhance and expand the soap note. At the base, you’ll get the remaining notes – white musk, coconut and patchouli.
I am normally into loud, obnoxious scents. So, personally, I don’t like using this scent on my skin. I find that it doesn’t last long as well. But I have tried it on my bed sheets and, oh boy, did it leave my room and bed smelling like a complete spa! It is such a calming and relaxing scent
Even though I don’t prefer it on my skin, I can tell you that it is a nice, wearable and non-offensive fragrance. Something suitable for those who are sensitive to offensive fragrances, perhaps for someone that works in an office, a hospital or a teacher.
Is it worth it?
In relation to the price point, I find it quite pricey since it doesn’t last for a very long time.
Who is this fragrance for?
The Bubble Bath fragrance is definitely suitable for males and females because it is neither too sweet nor too masculine. If you are looking for a fragrance that makes you smell clean and fresh – this is it! Perfect for when you get straight out of a shower when going to bed or heading to a spa.
