Maison Martin Margiela Replica: Jazz Club

maison-martin-margiela-replica-8-1024x679In the hopes of cooler weather I went in search of a new fall/winter fragrance. I took a chance and spritzed some Jazz Club: Brooklyn 2013 on my wrist and let it settle. I was quite surprised as to how much I loved it. It is a male fragrance that’s described as heady cocktail and cigar in a New York Jazz club. It features top notes of pink pepper, primofiore lemon and neroli oil, middle notes of rum absolute, clary sage oil and java vetiver oil, with base notes of tobacco leaf absolute, vanilla bean and styrax resin.

It’s a masculine scent and leaves you smelling as if you spent hours in an underground jazz club. At least that’s what the marketing people would like you to think. It initially has a strong scent of rich, slightly creamy rum scent, with a mixture of sweet and sugary coal. Think rum and coke. As it starts to dry, it turns into a sophisticated, mature, non-artificial tobacco and cigar aroma. It’s offset with a lighter scent of fresh, citrusy lemon and sweet vanilla. A few hours after I tested it, it settled into a warm vanilla leathery scent. Perfect for the cooler months ahead.

Side note, although this was created for men, I can totally see this being unisex. For the ladies that like a slightly masculine, rich and woody scent, you will quite enjoy this.

You can purchase it through Sephora.
