Maison Margiela Replica fragrances are all created to evoke images, impressions and emotions of those memories that we have perhaps long forgotten about. A fragrance that reminds you of a certain time in your life, or perhaps a certain somebody that you knew/know of! For this Summer season, I have been wearing their newly released - Under The Lemon Trees which is a fragrance that is sharp, fresh and incredibly citrusy!
MAISON MARGIELA - UNDER THE LEMON TREES
Top Notes: Lime, Petitgrain, Cardamom
Middle Notes: Coriander, Mate, Green Tea
Base Notes: Cedar, Rock Rose, White Musk
The opening of Under The Lemon Trees begins with a sharp and tart blast of the citrusy notes which at first is a little overwhelming but soon fades away into a fresher, more green scent. As the fragrance became more ‘green’ the fragrance then transported me to a hot climate, somewhere where the grass has been freshly cut with the sweet undertones of the citrus in the air.
Under the Lemon Trees is a fragrance that feels light and airy, yet has that warmth to it which adds more depth to a otherwise clean scent! The dry-down began around 1 hour into the fragrances performance and I found that the fragrance as a whole lasted up to 3-4 hours on my skin. A little disappointing, but Under The Trees is an Eau De Toilette so it was to be expected. In terms of its silage, the fragrance starts off with a medium-light silage but very quickly becomes lighter. Perhaps ideal for daytime wear!
If you are a fan of sharp, citrusy fragrances that feel fresh yet with added layers, then I would recommend trying Under The Lemon Trees! To find out more and to purchase, click here.
