As a fan of the Maison Margiela fragrances; By The Fireplace and Jazz Club, I was rather intrigued to try out two new additions to the Replica collection; 'Filters'. I had been fortunate enough to have been sent the two 'Filters' which were, Glow and Blur!

Both of the Filters primarily add a new dimension to a fragrance. So perhaps you've worn a fragrance before and thought 'I really wish that smelt slightly more citrusy!' or 'I would have liked that fragrance to have been slightly more muskier.' That's where the Maison Margiela - Filters come in!

I have found that both of these filters, although are meant to enhance your fragrance, can be worn alone individually! That being said, they are much softer and don't command as much notice, nor do they have a strong sillage, but the longevity of these lasted for a very long time when sprayed upon my skin.


  • Boosts radiance
  • Zesty and Solar notes

Out of the two, Glow features many citrusy notes and smells incredibly fresh and radiant! Perfect for the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons. I have found that Glow works best with By The Fireplace as the Glow filter adds a fresher take on what is otherwise classed as a muskier fragrance.


  • Boosts softness
  • Cotton and Musky notes

Between the two, the Blur filter is my favourite. Blur features the notes of Cotton, White Musk Accord and Grey Amber Accord. I have found this to be a softer scent, and although it features the Cotton note, it doesn't feel too powdery upon my skin. Blur works best with the Jazz Club fragrance, as it enhances the musky feel to it!

Both of the Maison Margiela Replica Filters are impressive, and I have found trialling these out and mixing them with other fragrances, a rather exciting process! You can purchase both Glow and Blur here. You can also read my fragrance review on the Maison Margiela 'By The Fireplace' here!
