I recently picked up Maison Margiela Replica ‘Jazz Club’ for the Husband after getting a sample of the scent. He’s partial toward vanilla based scents so I knew he’d like this one.
‘Jazz Club’ reminds me a little of E&J’s Nirvana Bourbon and Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille. It’s deep and heady. The vanilla and tobacco stand out at first while the dry down is quite powder-y – at least when I tried it on. While I appreciate masculine and androgynous scents on myself, this one was too powdery for my liking but it’s great on the Husband!
‘Lazy Sunday Morning’ is a staple scent of mine. Anyone who knows me personally knows I love the scent of patchouli, so I gravitate toward perfumes with it as a main note.
Like with most of the Maison Margiela scents they’re similar to existing perfumes on the market. This one in particular is a lighter version of Fresh ‘Cannabis Santal’. Honestly, if I had to choose I’d pick Cannabis Santal because of the longevity. Unfortunately though, Fresh doesn’t make a travel size version of their popular scent so I like to keep LSM in my bag for the days I forget to put on perfume (this happens often #mombrain) or need a mid-day running after the little monsters pick me up.
As a rule we tend to only buy the travel or small versions of fragrances because we like to try new scents all the time. I can’t tell you how many little samples we have between us! Also, it’s fun to experiment with new scents and even layer them together.
