Untitled by Maison Martin Margiela
When I requested a sample of the new (and only) Maison Martin Margiela fragrance, I expected a bottle of scent and a press release, possibly packaged in an anonymous white box. I didn’t expect this…
The bottle of scent was present and the packaging was suitable Margiela – white utilitarian drawstring pochette and white linen carrier bag. But also present was a big white accordion file containing all sorts of geek-friendly ephemera. A technical drawing of the bottle (well it was designed by Fabien Baron), a joint interview with Baron and Maison Martin Margiela, God knows how many CVs, photos and explanatory notes on Maison Martin Margiela and my favourite – some silver foil discs that are destined for the drawer marked ‘Interesting Collage-y Stuff For Scrapbook’.

This looks lovely and I can't wait to get my nostrils around it… see how the fragrance itself measures up!

Loved the science-lab style bottle :)

The packaging and bottle are beyond gorgeous!

Love the look of the bottle and packaging – almost like it's a test bottle from the lab where they made the perfume.

The design is so spot on here! I love it before I've even smelt it.

Saw this first a while ago on Susie's blog, and wanted it from the get-go. Will need to pop into the Margiela shop next time I am actually back in the bloody country and try it out. Btw, what exactly are the foil discs intended for?

Anastasia & Duck: I guess the foil discs refer to… the silver helium balloons they have in the shop? or the disco balls. i dunno, something like that! BTW, it's not even out yet, I s'pose I should find out when it launches (doh!)
