  • Does a woman with lots of scents like lots of lovers?

    A photo posted by Miller Harris (@millerharris) on

    I have one, regular perfume. I’ve been with it for years. It’s part of my identity. It is synonymous with me, leaving an imprint where I go. It’s my old perfume. Then, a different perfume caught my senses. I wanted it. Something new. Different. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my old perfume. It’s safe and familiar, but I fancied a change.

    I was having an olfactory 7 year itch. So I bought it. I keep it on a different shelf to my regular perfume, so as not to cause any upset... I like having something new from time to time. it makes me feel slightly different. But I always go back to my regular one.

    I know someone who has 17 different bottles of perfume and she is constantly looking for new ones..Picking and choosing on a whim, like a modern day dating app. (I feel exhausted just thinking about it) I asked her if she likes lots of lovers. She laughed. I think in a way to say ‘how ridiculous’. Although perhaps she’d simply been rumbled…

  • You’ve probably noticed scent has an uncanny ability to conjure long lost memories. But how closely is a scent related to visuals. Can you really smell a colour?

    Yes. Synaesthesia is a neurological phenomenon where stimulation of one of the senses stimulates an additional sense: for example, smelling a colour or tasting a sound.

  • The bitter orange tree is a wonder. For perfumers, it provides a number of different essences, chief amongst which is neroli – used for centuries by perfumers. The orange tree is rather unromantically referred to as the ‘pig of perfumery’ – because so many parts of the tree are useful.neroliblog Continue reading

    You Magazine loved Etui Noir, describing it as “a smoky blend of bergamot, leather and birch – will suit intrepid travellers”

    guardianobserversummer

    Lumiere Doree picked as one of the Observer Magazine’s best summer fragrances… “All of this season’s best fragrances veer towards boyish, with bergamot and fruit and green things leaving the sense of a memorable country walk on your skin, but one with someone you really, really like.”

    harpersbazaaronline

    And finally, Harper’s Bazaar pick Etui Noir as the "best addictive, heady scent" for summer.


  • With the upcoming launch of Lumiere Dorée & Etui Noir, blogs and press are beginning to get excited and are buzzing over our new fragrances.

    We were recently featured over by Hayley over London Beauty Queen who loved both of the fragrances. Here's what she has to say about Etui Noir:

    "Interestingly this is actually quite unisex, thanks to the more masculine notes of leather and wood, so it's definitely one you could share with your partner or enjoy alone"

    Jane, the British Beauty Blogger, British Beauty Blogger says:

    "Lumiere Doree has all the right notes to be the sunshine – if you can say there is a scent to the sun then I definitely get it in this"

    bbblden

    Etui Noir and Lumiere Dorée are two sides of the same person: night and day, and dark and light. They work beautifully individually or layered as a pair, where they reveal new shadows and facets.

    The two fragrances will be launching on June 2nd here at millerharris.com and at our stores.

    Ten years ago, Jane Birkin collaborated with Miller Harris to create a fragrance that evokes her eternally cool spirit. Jane Birkin’s other brand collaboration, with Hermès, produced the Birkin bag, the value of which has increased at a faster rate than gold.

    Jane Birkin spent years searching for a scent to match her distinct and nonchalant style, and conscious of our sense of smell’s powerful link to memory, Jane wanted to blend a perfume reminiscent of a past affair, one that conjured an aura of familiarity, so that she could feel her great love near her always.

    In an article titled “How to smell like Jane Birkin” in last month’s British Vogue, Jane explained that "A fragrance should be something suggestive, a memory… A smell that is not the one of many women overpowering the lift! That is what I love about L'Air de Rien," she told us. "My favourite smells are [her brother] Andrew's smell, bookcases, Turkish spice markets… Too much musk and too much ambergris. Memories."

    Tunisian neroli, amber, Indonesian vanilla, oak moss and a musk make for a light fragrance, worn like a thin veil over the skin, that lends an air of mysterious sensuality to its wearer. The English translation of L’Air de Rien is nonchalantly – this fragrance reflects its cool creator’s spirit perfectly.

    Our customers love L'Air de Rien.  Here are a couple of reviews we've recently received:

    "Daring, sensuous, standing out fragrance, encouraging you to step outside of your comfort zone. Perfect for a rainy day to give you a punch" Irene, Derby

    "Since finding this fragrance a few years ago I wear nothing else, it's captivating, unusual and unique. Please never discontinue it! I'm on my third bottle of the fragrance and have bought numerous candles too, would recommend" Laura, Swansea

    We are thrilled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the creation of this fragrance, and our iconic collaborator.

    L’Air de Rien is available in 50ml and 100ml bottles. Miller Harris also sells a L’Air de Rien candle, so you can fill your home with this light yet intriguing and wholly unique fragrance.
