Maison Martin Margiela Replica Tea Escape Perfume Review
Those who are looking for the more recognizable and familiar scent of Chinese green tea are going to be in for a surprise. Replica's "Tea Escape" is the scent of high-quality Japanese green tea -- which is processed differently than its Chinese counterpart.
While both Chinese and Japanese green teas are of the same plant (Camellia Sinensis), the former is roasted dry, while the latter is steamed dry. The roasting process gives Chinese green tea a sweet, slightly spicy-zesty green tea scent (think Bulgari's "Green Tea"), while the steam-drying process allows the Japanese green tea to retain its vibrant green color, and the slightly sweet-grassy, vegetal scent.
If you are wondering which green tea scent smells "better," I would say that it is all a matter of preference. However, for perfectly capturing the scent of Japanese green tea, Replica's "Tea Escape" deserves a perfect rating of five stars.
"Tea Escape" has notes of Japanese green tea, jasmine sambac, citrons, bergamot, and Japanese popped rice.
As far as longevity goes, the lasting power is medium, which means that it'll last for three to four hours. Thus, because it isn't a dark and intense scent, it would be unrealistic to expect it to last all day.
Give this a try today! "Tea Escape" is a beautiful, vegetal tea scent that gives the wearer a sense of peace and well-being.
