Yes, Réplique is fabulous smelling!! Years ago, I was working for a hotel company, and there was some event (there were always events), and one of the sales managers who flew in from out west smelled soooo divine I had to ask her what she was wearing (by the way, she was the most uptight woman I’d ever met so I really had to screw up my courage to ask her) and it was Réplique. I had never heard of it. She said her husband bought it for her. A spicy, warm, animalic chypre is exactly right. I never forgot the name. Fast forward a zillion years and I bought a little mini bottle of the parfum on ebay but it is totally shot, I think. If I get my hands on any ethanol I will try your experiment. Enjoy!
