Latest Reviews of Replica Matcha Meditation
In terms of performance, I'd say it's moderate with decent projection for the first 2 hours. Given the scent's brief matcha and green tea notes, 'Matcha Flash' would have been a fitting name.
This fragrance was introduced to me in a Notino perfumery, where the girl was an Ambassador of Maison Margiela and Atelier Cologne. She understood very quickly, that I am not a usual customer and my nose is trained. /Well, I guess 95% of reviewers on fragrance forums have trained nosies as well :)/
So she reached for the Matcha Tea because she knew it was unusual and someone so spoiled like me would like it.
Well, she was right, because I own it now :)
I guess it is not for everyone. The green tea, I would say green jasmine tea, is very present. And the white chocolate. I happen to like these, but not everyone likes true green tea and white chocolate. Especially when they are together. Years ago, my colleague used to drink a wide range of loose teas, she had so many beautiful sachets of various tea leaves of different colours, scents, flavours and origin... I liked my colleague's whole Zen personality with her weird bohemian clothes and jewels. She prepared these teas with such a ritual, I always got a little tiny porcelain colourful bowl with some exotic tea... That is when I got familiar with true loose teas. And the whole process of preparing and serving and drinking of tea was such an "asian", "buddhistic" experience, that I was instantly transferred to Far East in my mind. Probably that is the reason why I like to wear this fragrance on a rainy days, because I find the rain calming... and the tea as well.
I like all the notes listed, even if I can't particularly pick them up in this fragrance. I cannot say I smell moss, or cedar, or neroli. Everything is beautifully blended in here. For me, those 2/3 notes are the most prominent - tea, jasmine, chocolate. Very weird combination, and very beautiful. It has a calming effect on me, I feel cozy wearing this. I am happy that I found this fragrance, because it is so hard to find a good tea fragrance!
The drydown becomes more agreeable, the further it gets from the opening. It becomes more powdery and sweet. Much nicer.
Average performance overall. The projection is decent but never loud while the longevity is maybe 4-5 hours.
