The 'Replica' fragrances by Maison Margiela are designed to evoke a nostalgic feel to them, creating memories and thoughts from various places, eras and times throughout the years.

I received By The Fireplace and I must admit, prior to receiving this fragrance, I was first made aware of this scent earlier this year. By The Fireplace was the fragrance which stood out to me amongst all the other Replica fragrances, due to the fact it stood out by a clear mile!

The notes featured within the fragrance are:

  • Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Orange Blossom, Cloves
  • Middle Notes: Chestnut, Guaiac Wood, Juniper
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Peru Balsam, Cashmeran 

What I love about the By The Fireplace fragrance, is that it is exactly what it says. When first sprayed, I get a real 'caramel' feel to it, and the longevity of By The Fireplace is by far one of the longest lasting fragrances upon my skin that I have tried this year. In terms of sillage, I would say this is heavy, and I've often been told that people know where I've been due to the fragrance lingering around in the air!

I would suggest wearing this fragrance on a cold, Autumnal night, and only minimal sprays are needed! Also, how slick is the bottle? It reminds me of the laboratory glasses I used to see in the Science classes at school! Or perhaps that's just me..? By The Fireplace is available to purchase here, and comes only in the 100ml.
