Fashion can make you unforgettable, but there's nothing like leaving your mark with a memorable scent. (Fact: It's well-known that our sense of smell can trigger emotions and memories, thanks to our brain's layout.) On that note, Maison Margiela is a go-to among avant-garde style stars for its unconventional silhouettes, and LA fragrance aficionados will want to head to the French luxury label's first ever standalone pop-up featuring its people-pleasing Replica collection.
Now through December 31, the John Galliano-led brand is popping up for the holidays at Westfield Century City with the 10-scent eau de toilette and perfume lines inspired by its fashion collection of the same name. Located on level 1, the space stocks giftable travel sets ($65) and full-sized fragrances ($126 to $180) like Jazz Club (a whiskey-and-leather-inspired scent), Lipstick On (a powdery floral scent with vanilla, bourbon, patchouli, and citrus notes), Beach Walk (a warm ocean stroll-inspired floral scent), and Filter Blur (a layering fragrance featuring notes of cotton, white musk, and jasmine), to name just a few.
Whether you're gifting someone on your stylish holiday list or treating yourself, every bottle's label can be customized by name, personal location, and time. There's also an in-store iPhone printer that'll create fragrance pouches personalized with your own photo fo your favorite olfactory memory.
