Factory – [+ small Maison Martin Margiela giveaway]

Last month, my workspace looked like a little factory with rolls of felt, piles of cut fabric all over and a sewing machine instead of a computer on the desk. I was making the bags in which the new Maison Martin Margiela Replica scents would be presented to the press, kind of like a packaging for a packaging. The fragrances division of Maison Martin Margiela saw the DIY I made a while ago and commissioned me to make it for the entire fashion press of The Netherlands and Belgium. You can imagine my excitement.

About the fragrances_
Romeo appropriated the ‘Jazz club’ and my personal favorite is the musky ‘Lazy Sunday Morning’. Right now, the beautiful bottle of ‘Promenade in the gardens’ sits unused on the shelf. So if you like flowery scents with a slight hint of fresh leaves, leave your email in the comments below. At the end of the week I will pick someone who can put it to good use and send it over inside a little felt bag.

    i would love to win this perfume. The only perfumes I have are about 10 years old an from when I was a teenager. I never wear any of them – I think they’ve all gone off. I’d love to have a perfume in my collection that is actually appropriate and delicious to wear. This one looks and sounds straight up my street. xx

    Maar wel echt ontzettend gaaf dat je dat mag doen! 😀

    En ik doe ook graag mee met je giveaway, de geur lijkt me heel erg lekker!
    Maar buiten het winnen van zo’n stukje kunst (het flesje is zo mooi!) krijg je er ook niet een handgemaakt tasje van jou erbij! En dat is misschien nog wel beter dan het parfum zelf 😉

    Beautiful packaging design!

    As a designer (graphics) myself I want to say that I find your minimalistic approach to designing, and wearing – weather it’s garments, shoes or fragrances very inspiring.

    After I discovered your blog I find myself stripping my designs down, rather than adding more things. Which, turns out, I needed.

    You are a huge inspiration to so many readers and it’s fantastic that people at MMM can see that! Congratulations!

    And last but not least, I’d Love to smell that fragrance! I’m a huge fan of MMM’s works, but I’m lucky enough to live in Iceland and have never handled a piece of theirs physically.

    Keep up the good work!

    Gisteren alle versies geroken. Ik had verwacht dat ze heel subtiel en ‘licht’ zouden zijn, maar het zijn naar mijn idee best zware geuren! Lazy Sunday Morning vond ik heerlijk. En de flacons… Oh zo mooi. De vilten zakjes zijn ook prachtig! Good job!!

    Congratulations, that sounds really exciting!

    I’ll be trying my luck as well… haru.in.wonderland@gmail.com

  86. It’s taken me a while to admit it, but I am a “floral” girl when it comes to scent. It sounds counter intuitive but everything else smells sickly on my skin (isn’t it fascinating how how things smell different on differnet people?!)

    I would love to have any of the MMM fragrances, not to mention I would love to have a LA original bag!

  88. Wat een mooie en geweldige dingen mag en kan jij weer doen! Ook ik waag een gokje: bloemengeuren zijn voor mij mijn signature en ik mag wel weer eens een nieuwe klassieker en iets nieuws wat ik nog niet ken en bovendien: de naam van de geur is toch al prachtig!

    Hi Ivania,

    I can tell you all about my dreams of growing and tending to a quaint Japanese garden in my backyard later in life or my tendency to gravitate towards more natural scents when choosing a fragrance, but I would like to share what I intend to do with the beautiful MMM bottle after I finish using up all of the fragrance.

    Next November I’m attending my best friend’s wedding in Mexico City, after which I’ll spend my 25th birthday in Cancún. Although it’s been 8 years since the last time I was in Cancún, I’ll never forget the city’s deep blue sea and perfectly white sand. To help save the memory of this Cancún trip, I’m going to put some white sand into the MMM bottle to bring back with me and use to decorate my apartment in NYC. I intend to place the bottle in my living room – either on my coffee table or bookshelf.

    Basically, owning the MMM bottle fits into both my current and long-term lifestyle, and I would love if you could help me put it to good use.

    Thanks!

    I love maison martin margiela, but money keeps having a piece as a dream. With this fragrance I could feel the elegance and pure style of margiela with another sense than my sight – a sense that belongs to aesthetics not much less than clothes or anything else. I mean it, I would appreciate it!

    Firstly, I wanted to say congragulations on being commissioned to work on a project that undoubtedly defines you in the fashion industry. I couldn’t see you collaborating with any other luxury brand but MMM. Secodly, I wanted to thank you, and say how big of an inspiration you have become for me. I’m a fashion business management student, who has learned how to appreciate smaller more beautiful things in life including overall aesthetic, through you. You’ve allowed me to grow into the individual I’m completely comfortable with, inside and out today. So thank you Ivania.

    Hi Ivania!

    I’m so happy to see how your relationship with Margiela has blossomed over the past few months! It is so exciting to see one of my favourite bloggers collaborate with a brand such as MMM!

    Being relatively young (16!) and un-self sufficient has made it troublesome for me to explore the world of fragrances; or even MMM for that matter! So I greatly appreciate the fact that you have given us readers the chance to divulge into something we wouldn’t have believed were possible just a few minutes ago!

    Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity! You have been such an inspiration for me personally, and your work and originality is simply awe-inspiring.

    MMM plus Love Aesthetics is a match made in heaven or shall I say “minimal heaven” lol I would like to sincerely congratulate you on your little workshop of your Pyramid Bag for MMM. Your DIY’s are always so innovative! This little giveaway excites me not only because it has to deal with both your blog and MMM, well I’m also excited for the scent of “Promenade in the gardens”. The perfume does describe “The romanticism of British gardens, where wanderers can lose themselves in the fresh green glades, or come around the organised chaos of an outcrop to find themselves suddenly surrounded by floral notes.” I’m probably too excited, forgive me. I can imagine wearing the scent down and emptying bottle. Then when it is all said and done I’d make my own DIY oil diffuser out of the bottle, great way to keep a perfume bottle as what it’s intended to do.

  155. Dear Ivania,
    I would love to have that fragrance! I am a college student studying fashion design and am very much inspired by Mason Martin Margiela and minimalism. Your blog is so influential to me, and I even constructed my senior year prom dress out of white leather inspired by Margiela and your minimalistic blog! You inspire me a lot because your style is so unique and simple, and I hope that you pick me to send this perfume to, I would cherish it very much.

I don’t know where I can find the MMM fragrances and therefore I want to take part of this giveaway. And also because my own scent preference are flower scents. The Promenade in the gardens sounds very tempting and unique and I am looking forward to try this. Again thank you. And congratulations on being part of the fashion press. I think the whole presentation will be awesome. You definitely inspire me. Groetjes uit België, Stéphanie.

My parents are plant-lovers, so I am constantly surrounded with plants either inside or outside my house. It is probably why I love floral things as well as scents – I think it would be a privilege to add another distict floral scent to my small collectino of perfumes.

    I’ve actually never really worn perfume. I dunno, I’ve always associated it with over the top cartoonish Cruella DeVille-type guady characters who would smoke cigarettes with a cigarette holder or something.

    That said, I’ve recently been thinking about it because a friend once said to me that because she wears perfume, sometimes a friend will call her out of the blue and say, “I smelled something that reminded me of you recently, I miss you, how have you been doing.”

    And I think that’s kind of beautiful.

    I love the smell of green tea leaves, fresh grass and dancing botanical, floral potions like gin. Basically this sounds like my kind of fragrance – plus, I adore the bags.

    Hi Ivania! I’m Aglaia, I’ studying Footwear and Accessories Design and I’m really (kind of you) obsessed with white. I’m doing research on research for my -WHITE WHITE- collection and u are always an inspiration. So of course I really like Margiela and all the work he did. Not only on shoes (I’m basing my Collection in tabi, so) and the fragance will be really nice on a white-obsessed person. Don’t u think?! 😉

    That’s amazing, congrats!

    To be honest, wearing perfume has never been a part of my daily regime but I do love collecting wonderful packagings. ‘Promenade in the gardens’ is such a pleasant name and with the bottle, it’ll be nice to try something new.

    Tiny pyramids bags are essential for storing things such as things that you care about. Congrats that MMM is seeing your talents, you’re a muse, and as an artist you’re growing into a Ivaniamania. Your audience wants more! I haven’t found the perfect fragrance but promenade in the gardens sounds surreal, inside a little felt bag? Perfect gift.

    Secondly: a give away for an MMM-scent? I’m in! I almost never acquire new perfumes, but I’m currently running out of my Clean Skin perfume and need to stock up. I would love to be wearing the MMM scent plus having that gorgeous bottle sit on my bathroom shelf!

    Oh, I wish for it. In February I went to Paris with my three guy friends (two of them being gay but not a couple) so I had the perfect company for window shopping and strolling around the city. We were looking for Rue de Montpensier for such a long time and couldn’t find it at all. So we were standing in front of Colette and this beautiful woman was passing by and my friend (gay one, it was only two of us there at that specific moment) stopped her and asked her (in French, everybody knows the French don’t like to speak English… but I don’t agree) for directions. She tried to show us in our little city map but she got lost in it. So she suggested getting her bigger & better map from her car, so we were like – well, ok, thanks! She ran away in her Louboutins and we were waiting and waiting and then realized we were waiting for almost ten minutes and still nothing. So my friend lit a cigarette and said “let’s wait five more”. And in about a minute or two she was there with a huge map of Paris. She showed us the way and I – as an almost complete French nonspeaker /ok, I know a few words – wanted to compliment her on her bag. I told her “J’aime votre sac!” and my friend giggled a bit, because sac is probably not only a handbag. Oh, whatever. But what delighted me the most was her reply: “Vous avez bon goût!” – you see? She didn’t say thank you as probably everybody would, she complimented me on my taste. It’s like saying “I know,” but in a very very different and more pleasant way. And I learned to tell people the same thing when they compliment me on something. So the journey of finding a MMM store (where I bought a pair of black patent leather sneakers I wear all the time) led me to a wonderful life experience. And thank you for bringing back this beautiful memory. Take care.

    Congratulations Ivania!
    That’s so amazing that you got a chance to work with Maison Martin Margiela…it must have been such a dream come true for you given the way your aesthetics match so well! The little felt bags are so interesting and just the smallest bit unexpected…they remind me of cute little cones or dwarf hats or something equally adorable! I love that they’re both so clean looking and so functional–I bet they can be re-used to carry quite a number of different things.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! I could never afford anything MMM on my student budget so it would be so amazing if I could be the lucky winner. Not to mention, I recently decided that I should find myself a fragrance as opposed to my usual scent of soap. Something like Promenade in the Gardens sounds like it would smell amazing! Aside from enjoying the scent, I think I would be happy just to have that bottle sitting on my countertop. It looks so clean and almost medicinal with the clear bottle and uncluttered label. I honestly think the label is my favorite part of the bottle!
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’m the lucky winner but I’m sure there’s other people who deserve it more. Here’s to hoping that someone deserving gets that beautiful fragrance!!

    Hej Ivania! Being mom to a nine month old little girl and trying to run my own design business at the same time makes me spend that hard earned money in smart but at times not so fun ways. So I keep a (very small) wish-list on the side with some favs that I might spoil myself with – if a bucket of cash magically would appear on my doorsteps. A MMM fragrance has been on that list for a long time. Would be great (: Keep up the good work, /Sara (studio@burkhard.se)

  339. Phoebe says:

    Hello Ivania! I love when different scents remind you of specific times in your life, like I used to wear a kinda heavy Slava Zaitsev perfume when I was learning to ice skate because I wanted to feel like a fearless Russian princess instead of a gangly lil four eyes with no coordination, and now every time I smell it I can almost feel the ice. I’ve had a strange year, a little sad but I came out of it recently feeling so open, looking up at life and a new beginning. And it’s the year that I first found your blog and subsequently started experimenting with my style much more happily, maybe MMM would be the scent to help me always remember this time? :] Kind regards always, Phoebe. x
