The latest "Replica" fragrance explores the worlds of perfume and wine.
Embracing the golden light of a late summer evening as the scent of ripe grapes and fresh roses fills the air, "On A Date" is Maison Margiela's latest "Replica" fragrance. Created to reflect the sense of joy and excitement felt on a date, the exciting fragrance is inspired by the magnificent vineyards of Provence and is a creative exploration between the worlds of perfume and wine.
Initiating a collaboration between Master Perfumer, Carlos Benaim and Master Sommelier, Manuel Peyrondet, "On A Date" elevates the senses with a unique, deep fragrance that evokes a sweet, seductive quality that captures the invigorating, addictive fruitiness of ripe grapes bathed in warm sunlight and the delicate character of wild roses. "First I was looking for the best way to express the aromas of red wine. I translated its finesse and freshness using Creme de Cassis, Davana, and then I also explored the aromas of rosé wine expressing its energy and roundness," says master perfumer Carlos Benaim.
Infused with sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients, the fragrance includes notes of sparkling bergamot, rose, patchouli essence, rose petal essence and a blackcurrant liqueur accord, adding a magnetic woody signature while evoking the vineyards of Provence in the early hours of the night... "For me, perfumes serve to make you feel good, and "On A Date" is inspired by the exceptional terroir of Provence, which offers a contrast of unique aromas," adds master sommelier Manuel Peyrondet.
Maison Margiela's 'On A Date' will be available in 100ml, 30ml and 10ml formats alongside the 'Replica' candle and available for purchase on the brand's website.
