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.

Do you enjoy the scent of tea?

  4. It's so good to learn new things, I didn't know that green tea came from camellia and that there is Chinese and Japanese green tea! I think that I prefer a more intense scent, so the Japanese one could be better for me, I guess! I now want to try this perfume so much! I am sure I will love it!

  6. I enjoy green tea scents, they are so relaxing and calming. This was a very informative post, I didn't realize that there were two types of green tea (Japanese and Chinese) Tea Escape sounds so really refreshing.

    1. It's a bit warmer and "quieter" than the scent of Chinese green tea, but Japanese green tea does smell very pretty. :o)

  12. I have no idea what Japanese tea smells like, but would love to try this! I'm guessing from the notes its kind of citrusy and aromatic smelling which sounds really nice and uplifting :)

    1. Japanese green tea smells green and warm, with a slightly toasted undertone if it also has roasted brown rice mixed in. I hope that you'll try this; it truly is beautiful! :o)
