Sephora Holiday Gift Sets 2015-For the Beauty Lover in Your Life!

I found it! A scent that smells literally like the beach! I got a sample of this lovely fragrance from Sephora. Not expecting much I opened it and to my shock it transported me straight to those salty days at the ocean. To me, it smelled like the salty sea air mixed with the slightest fragrance of coastal flowers and that sun kissed skin just after applying another layer of coconut-y sunscreen. I couldn’t get enough of this scent! After trying to make the sample last for 3 days I decided I better purchase the full size right away. I went online to buy it and couldn’t believe that the full size fragrance was $125. That’s a little more then I like to spend on one bottle of fragrance most of the time. So, I opted for the $25 Roller Ball. The scent didn’t last as long as I would have liked during the day but that’s what is so great about the roller ball. You can just pop it in your bag for touch-ups during the day (whenever you need that beach escape).
I had never heard of Maison Martin Magiela until I got this sample. Apparently, he is a French designer that has been designing since 1988. I love the idea framed around his line of fragrances. He says they are to evoke scents hidden in our memories. I love that! It is so true. His fragrances transport you!
Beach Walk notes are: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk, Cedarwood, Benzoin.
My Quick Take: This is the closest fragrance that smells like the beach that I have found. The Roller Ball doesn’t have much staying power but I have enjoyed it immensly! I definitely recommend!
Have you tried any of the Replica Fragrances? I can’t wait to try some of his other fragrances from the line! Let me know what you recommend in the comments!
