Scherzo

14ml Travel – $56.00

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 and sunny yellow narcissus. 

Star Notes

PEONY OUDH SWEET NOTE

A multitude of blooms: dark red rose, clouds of peony and sunny yellow narcissus...

The heady glamour of 1930s French riviera is recreated in our best seller, bursting with fruits, flowers and shimmering sunshine. The base shimmers with oudh, earthy patchouli and a sprinkling of sugar to capture the feeling of a confectioner’s window. The sweetness of tangerine is offset by the intoxicating purple richness of davana, which adds a twist of liquor to the scent.


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.

Perfumers story

Inspired by the world of literature

Scherzo is the first Miller Harris fragrance to derive inspiration from the world of literature. 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. The fragrance takes in cue from Fitzgerald's description of the heroine, young actress Rosemary Hoyt strolling against a symphony of bright flowers in glorious summer sunshine. Mathieu says that "when i read a book, I can smell what i am reading, the sense of what the writer is describing - the location, the French Riviera and the wonderful descriptions of sun, sea and heat influenced me to find my own colours and palette for the book in order to fill out the background for the fragrance. "Scherzo " is named after a musical term meaning a small extract taken from a larger work such as a symphony.
