Forage: A Celebration

Nature is everywhere. Even in the unlikeliest of places. We just need to know where to look. We also have to trust our instincts. And it’s this sense of discovery – of going beyond the expected – that makes urban foraging so alluring.

To celebrate our commitment to nature and our respect for those who constantly source the best ingredients, Miller Harris have launched a new range. Forage presents three perfumes inspired by the botanical treasures around us. These are Hidden, Lost and Wander. The brief to our perfumiers was to create fragrances using only ingredients which can be discovered wild in London.

This did I feel, in London's vast domain

The Spirit of Nature was upon me there

An Experience

Rather fittingly, for a range inspired by London’s natural splendour, the fragrances were launched in sunshine on the rooftop of Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery. A unique venue for a unique approach to the perfumier’s art.

Architects Al-Jawad Pike provided a multi-sensory journey of discovery which was enhanced by vibrant floral sculptures from Palais Flowers. Renowned sound artist Claudia Molitor debuted bespoke compositions to add to the ambience. Everything was about engaging the senses and sharing the experience of foraging.

An Opportunity

To continue to foster inspiration and connect people with the heart of foraging, we are launching a competition with the aim of finding the country’s best foraged bouquet. This could consist of wildflowers, berries, stems, fronds or leaves – the important thing is to be creative. Let nature be your guide and don’t be afraid to see where it takes you. The key criterion is beauty. And the prize is the set of the three Forage by Miller Harris perfumes.

Post your photos between the 20th and 3rd June, using the hashtag #MHForagedBouquet and providing a description of what foraged findings were used in the bouquet. Good luck and we look forward to sharing the natural joy of your floral creations.
