Fragrance Of The Month: Maison Margiela Replica When The Rain Stops EDT

This month? We try out Maison Margiela Replica When The Rain Stops EDT…

There’s something special about watching a heavy rain fall. Whether it’s Vancouver’s mist-like drops or the thunderous cascading downpours in Toronto, rain has a soothing, calming and yet invigorating quality about it. Especially when it comes to a halt and the world, at least for a moment, seems to stop. This is the exact sensation you’ll feel when you spritz on Maison Margiela’s Replica When The Rain Stops eau de toilette.

Aquatic and clean, the scent opens with fresh and energetic green, bergamot and pink pepper notes. A rush of cool and wet water and rain notes combined with sweet and tender Turkish rose and jasmine blooms follow before being absorbed into a pool of earthy moss, forest-like pine tree and spicy patchouli. The overall effect is aromatic and crisp, soulful and soft.

The grey-lilac-coloured fragrance is captured in the Parisian brand’s classic cylinder shaped and industrial-like bottle with a metal push-down spritz, sans topper, for unisex appeal. It’s the perfect accoutrement for rainy days and their aftermath, as well as for those when you wish a few drops would fall from the sky.

Maison Margiela Replica When The Rain Stops, $178 for 100 ml, available online at and in Sephora stores.
