Miller Harris limited editions return – which was your lost love?
Is there anything worse than your favourite being discontinued? Lipsticks – well, you can probably find a similar colour, but a discontinued fragrance is a whole new world of scented anguish.
Miller Harris have listened to the pleas of perfumistas bemoaning the loss of their all-time faves, and have – for ‘a limited time only’ – brought back some of their most iconic fragrances for fans to stock-up with. Created by brilliant perfumer, Lyn Harris, it’s the perfect time to buy back-up bottles, or to try for the very first time and find a new love.
But you’d better be quick, or be ready to yearn once again, for these are only available in limited quantities. Is your favourite on the list? The four original fragrances are as follows…
‘Top notes of bergamot and mandarin combine with a heart of narcissus poeticus, rose and green violet. As these notes unite, a heady base of cedar, amber and sea moss evoke an experience of fig by the sea.’
‘Fleur Oriental is the olfactive equivalent of a daring new arrangement of a jazz standard. Speaking of the seductive opulence of golden age cinematic glamour, with a bohemian twist. The powder and cream of the base is present throughout the development, created by sweet heliotrope, golden amber, animalic labdanum and musk with a touch of vanilla. Atop the base is an translucent and evocative blend of orange flower, spicy carnation and velvet Turkish rose, lifted by bright bergamot.’
Terre de Bois
‘Terre de Bois’ green and fresh tones contrast with a sensual and woody base composed of vetiver, Malay patchouli and verbena. Galbanum, a resin from Persian fennel, juniper and clary sage create a full and rounded heart which is completed with accents of citrus and spice.’
‘Geranium Bourbon evokes an English garden after summer rain; wild and rosy geranium is given mystery and depth with palmarosa and cassis berry. A heart of French violet, Turkish rose and spicy black pepper is sealed with vanilla, amber and the rich patchouli of a Kashmir bazaar.’
