An intensely vibrant scent, full of colour, depth and a rush of sweetness, Scherzo captures a multitude of blooms: dark red rose, clouds of peony, sunny yellow narcissus and crisp white pittosporum. The sweetness of tangerine is offset by the intoxicating purple richness of davana, which adds a twist of liquor to the scent. The base shimmers with oudh, earthy patchouli and a sprinkling of sugar to capture the feeling of a confectioner’s window.

Launched in 2018, Scherzo is inspired by a passage of text in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night. This short passage was the only thing given to perfumer Mathieu Nardin as the brief for the fragrance to be created. The resulting perfume has gone onto become an instant classic and bestseller in our house of fragrances at Miller Harris.

Head Notes: Tangerine, davana

Heart Notes: Olibanum, narcissus, pittosporum, dark rose, peony

Star Notes

Peony... voluptuous, sensual yet fragile and fresh, a national emblem in China and Japan symbolising beauty and abundance. Oudh... One of the most expensive ingredients that perfumers can use. Truly unique, it works brilliantly with the sweet and floral notes of Scherzo. Sweet Note (Maltol)... Fitzgerald writes descriptively of the real roses "looking like sugar flowers in a confectioners window". Maltol is a naturally occurring compound found in the bark of larch trees and pine needles.
