House Paint

A quick glance at the flacon, half matte white, and you might imagine that Untitled had accidentally rolled through a freshly painted art gallery. A green floral—and Maison Martin Margiela’s first actual perfume—it does, in a way, allude to bare floors and clean starts, minus the latex and toxic heavy metals. True to the designer’s form, it’s a perfume without a blatant manifesto or agenda, soft and intriguing enough to keep you wondering what the blazes is so strange about it? And then you realize it’s like a flower child who made a stinging whip from a garland of foliage. €55 to 100 at Colette, and Margiela boutiques this spring.
