When Maison Margiela’s REPLICA line of fragrances launched back in 2012 (starting with Beach Walk, Funfair Evening and Flower Market), people gravitated towards Beach Walk like moths to the flame (I mean, how could you not?). The blend of sunny bergamot and lemon, sweet coconut milk, heliotrope and benzoin alongside pink pepper, ylang ylang, musk and cedarwood, this fragrance truly embodies the familiar and calming scents and and carefree feelings of strolling in the sand. More specifically, the sands of Calvi in 1972, which was the particular scent memory that inspired the fragrance in the first place.
Fast forward five years and 13 additions to the REPLICA roster later and the fragrance house has finally introduced exactly what we’ve been waiting for: a Beach Walk bath & body care line.
Whether you want to just get all the Beach Walk on your body that is humanly possible or are opting for a different way to scent your life during the hot summer months, the three bath products—Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Dry Body Oil—harness all the good things about Beach Walk (namely, the scent that makes you want to ditch all your responsibilities and book it to the plage) with new nourishing body products.
The Shower Gel ($58) is a light foaming elixir that brings the best part of the beach right into your daily shower routine, while the Body Lotion ($77) nourishes and softens skin for a sunkissed scent and feel. But it’s the Dry Body Oil ($78) that is quite possibly our favourite of the trio: The lightweight oil hydrates while it soothes, leaving behind luminous, lightly scented skin. Plus, it can be used in your hair to tame flyaways (from your stroll on the beach, obvs), add shine and moisture and, of course, leaving every little bit of you smelling like a seaside slice of paradise.
If smelling like Beach Walk from head to toe isn’t enough, you can fill your home with the blissful, summery scent with the Scented Candle ($65), too.
