“An authentic heart who sees the beauty in the ordinary”

“An authentic heart who sees

the beauty in the ordinary”

Miller Harris was founded by ground-breaking perfumer Lyn Harris in 2000. A determined and self-possessed woman pursuing a passion for perfume. A storyteller in scent, Lyn was one of the first female master perfumers.

 

“Stories with soul and substance”

 

The aesthetic of her perfumes was inspired by stories, memories and the very finest natural ingredients. The iconic line drawings of botanicals which decorated box and bottle reflected a pared back, minimal but ultimately contemporary approach, genuinely representing the dynamic of nature and the urban co existing The fragrances told stories which couldn’t be told in words, the coloured boxes expressing their contents succinctly and with integrity.

“A Creative Community”

As most artists do, Lyn moved on to new horizons in 2012 but her driving passions remain ingrained in the brand today. We’ve broadened our reach, searching wider for creative inspiration and involving other creators and their stories as well as opening more experiential stores. We uniquely recognise the sensory links between space, art, music, design and perfume…we are about communicating on multiple planes.
