Lazy Sunday Morning.


I’ve been meaning to do a post about this incredible scent for a while now (spurned on by so many requests!) but I felt I just had to wait for a Sunday morning to post it! Sorry, not sorry.

I think the Replica ‘Lazy Sunday Morning’ fragrance has almost a cult status; I heard so much about this dreamy concoction before I tried it! The description ‘soft skin and bed linen’ is everything – everyone knows there’s no better scent than fresh bedding. It’s heaven bottled, I tell you.

The Maison Martin Margiela Replica fragrance line creates scents that from different periods and places. Each of the bottles has a brief description on the label detailing where the scent comes from, and the what it is inspired by. Lazy Sunday Morning takes inspiration from Florence, in the early 00’s – it’s softly romantic and truly delicious.


The scent itself is feminine but not young; there’s a musky, powdery note that plays down the floral notes, while the lily of the valley and patchouli hints give that fresh, clean feel.
I like to layer it on in the morning as I get dressed, and allow the familiar notes to warm and develop with my skin, forming something familiar and pure.

The brand describe the scent as being quite heavy, and I guess it is very fragrant and bold, but it also feels quite dainty on the skin – I never think it’s overbearing. It’s softly sophisticated and lovely day or night.

I’d say this is similar to the scents I usually wear – if you like Marc Jacobs Daisy or Jo Malone Sea Salt & Sage, you’re bound to love the heavy yet comforting notes of Lazy Sunday Morning!

A definite winner from Replica – has anyone else tried anything from the line?

  • I’ve never tried anything from the line before but now I really want to! The bottle is so nicely designed – simple yet chic and as you said – there is nothing better than fresh bedding! Great post! 🙂

    Have a lovely day x


  • I’d love to try the Replica scents since they sound so unique and beautiful. Lazy Sunday Morning is definitely first on my list!

    P.S. You’re brilliant at describing scents! xx


  • This sounds amazing, such a unique but evocative scent! I love the idea of wearing a scent called ‘Lazy Sunday Morning’ 🙂

    Yes! Finally someone who is in love with this scent as well! I just got the tester now and am in love with it, but I already purchased one that’ll last a longer time. I think this scent is very feminine in a way that also makes it sophisticated, if that makes sense. And btw, a great un’ on the title! Very fitting for Easter Sunday. xx

  • Embarrassed to say but I don’t think I’ve ever heard of this! Sounds like a great scent though, I’ll have to look out for it x


  • I would love to try it!!


  • Hi kate, I never heard of this before. Sound (and smell) amazing. I will look for this.


  • Maggie

    I keep seeing this when I go into the mall! I’m going to have to check it out next time!

    Kate, you keep writing about all the things I want to know! I tested Beach Walk from the same line in rollerball-form yesterday. It was nice, but I know Lazy Sunday Morning is the one for me. Unfortunately, they don’t carry these in any stores within a 50-mile radius. I may just have to risk it for the biscuit and buy it online!


  • I’ve seen these scents around a lot lately – they sound really lovely. Also, I love your mirror – it’s so beautiful!

  • These Replica scents seem like a fun way to describe perfumes, definitely a one to try!


  • Becca

    This sounds like an ideal scent! And I absolutely love the packaging – so simple but so classy! xx


  • I love daisy by marc jacobs so this would be perfect for me!


  • I’m a huge fan of Marc Jacob’s Daisy, so I know I’ll love this scent 🙂 Thank you for such a great recommendation! <3 There's nothing better than the scent of fresh linen!

  • I have never met anyone who could describe fragrances until I read this. Now I need this!

    I’ve only heard of this brand in the last month or so and it seems like everyone is talking about and loving it now. Sadly for me I doubt they stock this in Australia so I’ll probably never get a chance to smell it.


  • Sounds like I might like this, sounds goooood!

  • I really want to try Replica. Great post x


  • Emily Kovacevic

    I couldn’t agree more! This is one of my favorite scents I’ve bought in a very long time. I also just got “Beach Walk” which is a much lighter, playful smell. It’s wonderful too, but I think I still like “Lazy Sunday Morning” better.

  • Oh god, I need that fragrance now. Uh oh.

    This sounds amazing! x

    Sounds so light and pretty! Although, I do try and stay away from actual perfume brands as I don’t really admire the alcohol scent behind the perfume (if you know what I mean). I love using The Body Shop perfumes, matter of fact! they last a good couple hours and come in so many pretty scents, especially floral, which I’d think you might like. x

  • This is just so amazing! 🙂

  • Love this fragrance as well! The brand really captures the feeling of a Sunday spent in bed…
