I’ve put every single eau de toilette to the test.

Maison Margiela has been around for decades; the couture fashion label was established in 1988. It wasn’t until 2012, however that Replica, the brand’s fragrance offshoot, entered the portfolio. Rather than focusing on specific notes, the best Maison Margiela Replica perfumes are designed to encapsulate a memory or a specific season. The allure of storytelling is in part what’s led to the cult-like fame of eau de toilettes like By the Fireplace and Beach Walk.

Nostalgia is perhaps the brand’s biggest lure, attracting celebrity fans like Alix Earle (she’s partial to Coffee Break) and Vanessa Hudgens (she’s reported to love Jazz Club). But, with blends perfectly designed for the changing seasons—and an approachable price point to boot—Replica has a unique scent that's fitting for every time of occasion. 

Still, with so many options to choose from, ranging from sweet fruity florals to earthy, woody scents, it can be overwhelming to know which fragrance is right for you. To provide a bit of insight, Marie Claire editors have tried every single one, distilling the offerings into the 10 best Replica fragrances worth adding to your wardrobe.
