I really love the packaging for the Maison Martin Margiela fragrance "Untitled". So clean and simple. The scent is described as "...boxwood, incense, bitter orange...as if they had been gathered after the rain." I don't know what wet incense smells like, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Available, obviously, at the ever-chic Colette.

dulci -

Got the goods last week...not only is the package itself prettier in person. but it comes in a neat white cotton pouch. I hate to throw it out...so I will keep it for packing little things on our vacations.

The scent at first reminded me of cigarette smoke...NOT GOOD...but then I realized it was my allergies playing tricks on me. They are horrible right now and I am battling mother nature. I think she is winning.

Anyway, a few days later I tried again and it definitely has an earthy/smokey scent with a lite citrus tone to it. Very unique. I see the wet incense referral to it and understand what they mean now.

I love it and have gotten a lot of compliments. It is lite enough for summer, but will work into the fall with no problems.

Worth it? Yes.

For those of us in the states...remember the hefty shipping cost, but again...worth it!

Has anyone else tried it? What is it like on your skin?

Oh and the texture of the white part on the bottle is matte so it is a great contrast with the smooth glass parts. Very well designed!
