Maison Martin Margiela smell this

Wandering throught the Saks perfune area is like negotiating a party with a particularly tricky guest list, for ex: the squirters standing around which must be avoided at all coat lest you compromise your personal l'eau. The hugely informative yet long winded Bond guy is a nice time filler, but really you should skirt all these and just explore on your own(but DO NOT open the hall closet)Some amazing, unusual fragrances to be had.

I went explicitly to sample the first perfume ever from Masison Martin Margiele named "untitled" natch. Though MMM is currently owned by Diesel, they have managed to captured the aesthetic, simplictic yet difficult, of the line. Lots of green notes, cedar, boxwood and bitter orange combine to smell like, um, honestly? PAINT. I blame the boxwood. For someone who grew up sneaking behind the car to smell the exhaust until getting told I'd get brain damage if i continued: I LOVE IT. Also love the 4 string tie top, which is the brands secret symbol. Hey if New car Smell is the top 5 scenst guys love, I really don't think you can go wrong with this one
