MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA (UNTITLED).

Hyvin pitkään kestäneen etsinnän jälkeen löysin itselleni vihdoinkin uuden hajuveden. Taisin kokeilla untitlediä jo yli puoli vuotta sitten Helsingissä, ja nyt lukuisten koehaisteluiden jälkeen koin sen olevan juuri oikea itselleni. Tuoksujen kuvaaminen sanoin on haastavaa, mutta sanoisin sen vastaavan hyvin parfyymin vihreyttä, pullon ulkonäköä ja myös Margielan brändiä.

ENG: After a really long search I finally found a new perfume for me. I think I tried the untitled over six months ago the first time in Helsinki, and now after many more tests I felt that it really is the one for me. Describing smells with words is challenging, but I would say that it smells like the greenness of the perfume, like the bottle looks and as well like the brand of Margiela is.

Maison Martin Margiela 3 MMM 3 Untitled Eau de Parfum

Maison Martin Margiela’s first fragrance is finally launched after three years of developing its scent. Named ‘Untitled’, it fits perfectly to the brand’s no label approach. The overall minimal packaging design reflects on the scent as an Unisex fragrance. It is interesting to note, that the overall look and feel of the product was designed in collaboration with Fabien Baron, who was influenced by 19th Century glass stoppered bottles. And the cotton thread which is tied on by hand, resembles the famous four stitches seen on all Margiela’s garments.
