Réplique from Raphael is one of those vintage perfumes that have always intrigued me. It has a very deep fur note, extremely rich and complex with multiple aldehydic facets over the sweet woody base, and like Prétexte (Lanvin) is not an easy to understand perfume. A peppery spiciness over the leather complicates even more the conversation. Réplique belongs to a generation of perfumes of an intriguing sensuality and no olfactory equivalent today. I have other 4 creations from the same family on my table and since several weeks I'm trying to guess the intention of the master perfumer behind. But no chance to ... replicate the scent.
