The intriguing forest floor earthiness of vetiver roots juxtaposed with aromatic herbs, cool spice and resins.
An exploration of vetiver, the roots of a grass grown in Haiti and India, Vetiver Insolent is an intriguingly fresh yet smoky fragrance. It conjures the summertime tradition of weaving vetiver roots into a curtain, placed at a window and drenched in water to cool and scent the air. The facets of vetiver are all at play here, the forest floor earthiness of the root juxtaposed with the smoky resin of elemi, the woody elements of black pepper and the brazen freshness of bergamot and cardamom.
Eau de Parfum
An intensely vibrant scent, full of colour and a rush of sweetness
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
Rose Silence 14ml
A charming and modern take on the purest of roses, freshly picked and serene, with a gentle trail of cashmere.
Rose Silence is a charming and modern rose perfume, a pure blossom of blushing ivory petals and a moment of stillness. The delicate sensation of cashmere merges with a garment of fresh petals stitched together, caressing the skin. A sweet resonance of fruits lifts the petals, tangy blackcurrant and juicy mandarin, whilst sandalwood and musks create an impression of warm skin. The rose sits alone, freshly picked and serene.
