Off we went to the lovely Miller Harris shop in Notting Hill this morning to see their two new fragrances and best of all meet the ‘nose’ herself, Lynn Harris. Over cucumber and mint tea Lynn told us the stories behind La Pluie (inspired by the smell of rain) and La Fumee (based on smoky-wood smells) and allowed us to see into her secret lair; a treasure trove of bottles, jars and pots from floor to ceiling which is where all the magic happens. She told us that La Pluie took months and months of deliberation and pondering to get just right, while La Fumee came to life much more quickly. Launching in Miller Harris boutiques as well as Space NK on the 1st September, these are two that you will be wanting to add to your collection immediately.
La Fumee & La Pluie Eau de Parfums, from £60
