Paint which doesn't smell too much!

My DD has ASD and is going through a particularly sensitive phase right now. We want to paint some walls and wonder if anyone has suggestions of low odour paints. I seem to remember that Farrow and Ball, although expensive, are better than the likes of Crown, Dulux etc.

water paints, including emulsions, have a mild smell, which will go off with a few days ventilation.

Oil-based paints (with white spirit) smell more strongly and give off fumes.

Open windows are they key.

Try Earthborn paints, we've decorated numerous rooms with them and no smell at all, even our old school decorator was coverted and impressed with the coverage.

We recently used Crown Earthblance range in my toddlers room and it had virtually no smell at all - to the point where he was able to sleep in there the same night.

Can you wash any marks that get on the walls without having to repaint afterwards? I am asking because I am allergic to paint that really smells.
