A rush of colour and sweetness, like sugar flowers in a confectioner’s window floating above a garden.
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.
La Fumée Alexandrie
A hymn to the fragrant rituals of ancient Egypt, with rose scented smoky tendrils lifting to the skies.
La Fumée Alexandrie is a romantic vista of Alexander the Great's legendary city from atop the spectacular Pharos lighthouse. A hymn of rose and oud, this is a striking perfume of scented tendrils lifting towards the skies. A rose with a fruity character of both lychee and mandarin is twisted around the dry heat of papyrus and sandalwood. The intensity of oud is tempered with a spicy blend of cinnamon and cumin.
