Reviews of Replica Soul of the Forest by Martin Margiela

There are 5 reviews of Replica Soul of the Forest by Martin Margiela.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to wear this one. But I'm not disapointed at all. Mossy, briefly sweet but not cloying, and as the name but a bit dark and damp. Spot on for Replica

They have done a fantastic job on this one. It really does evoke the feeling of walking through a misty, green, mossy forest on a damp day. Very resinous and reminds me of tree sap (balsam presumably). Despite this it is not heavy, cloying, or overbearing. Reminds me of a dark forest not a bright forest in springtime full of young flowers. The incense plays a strong part in characterising this. Mysterious. I've been wearing this often over the winter and have received a few complements. Highly recommended.

Lightly green gem with a side kick of incense. The only flaw I noticed was the lack of longevity on my skin. Reminds me of a lighter version of Rykiel Man. 7.5/10

Replica perfectly manages in here to combine a ashy/rubbery kind of spiritual leather aesthetic (with a sort of meditative steaming Buddhist Monastery's atmosphere), with a typically indie North American crude mossiness from the wilderness, a misty bitter herbal botanical alchemic twist and the darker more impenetrable mossy atmosphere from the appalling northern forests. A sort of Ideal combination of Profvmum Arso, Slumberhouse Norne (the soul of the forest), Veejaga Hashish Homme, Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia, Armani Privè Bois d'Encens and Tom Ford Bois Marocain. The dominant smoky vibe is gummy but tending to a sort of impervious rocky aridity. Cistus and patchouli enhances an evident earthiness just vaguely coloured by faint berrish fruity accents. A rubbery, incensey, darkly woodsy, mystic and assertive fragrance.

This is an interesting scent. Starts with a rather fruity blast from the blackcurrant buds. Something like a crisp green pear here as well. On the dry side. Hints of incense and forest floor.
It claims to be a "fruity chypre" and it is exactly that. Mild thumbs up, not bottle worthy for me but it is interesting and I am glad to see things in the "forest" style.
