A Lazy Sunday Morning Smells Like This


What does a lazy Sunday smell like? For some, it might be bacon, or perhaps bad decisions…or maybe both. But for Maison Martin Margiela, a blend of patchouli and lily of the valley evokes the notion of skin on crisp white sheets or fresh laundry hanging out to dry in the sun. In other words, a lot more refreshing than what our weekend usually entails—and that’s a good thing, seeing as Lazy Sunday Morning is one of three new fragrances launching this month from the brand as part of the ever-expanding Replica collection. The remaining two eaux—Jazz Club and Promenade in the Gardens—are equally as enticing as a day of R&R.’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, says that the masculine combination of pink peppercorn, vetiver, tonka bean, and tobacco leaf in Jazz Club smells like “the one friend I have who actually goes to jazz clubs.” And by that she means this young gentleman has the alluring aroma of worn-in leather chairs and liquor—a strangely seductive combo. Promenade in the Gardens is laced with Turkish rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and vetiver to re-create the olfactory effects of a stroll through perfectly pruned hedges and fresh flowers (like Park Avenue during springtime—minus the traffic). The trio will transport your senses to a more glamorous place…or maybe just back to bed.
