Geraniums


We have a bit of a thing about geraniums, or pelargoniums if we're being correct, here especially the bold scarlet red type and rather wispy wild varieties. It's the heady, wet grassy smell that they fill the air with that brings back so many familiar memories of hot summers.



One of our favourite designers, John Derian based in New York, sells beautiful decoupage paper weights and plates, often with old botanical prints of flowers, including geraniums. Anyone listening, these are definitely on our wish list..!

We launched our Geranium Bourbon fragrance back in 2005 into our Nouvelle Edition collection, it was so popular, and we also felt that it would be a missed opportunity not to plaster the shelves with bright geranium red, we added it to our Ligne de Parfum range so we could sell it far and wide. This Spring we launched a candle in this fragrance, which is beyond lovely, filling your home with a grassy, peppery, heady geranium scent. Light it somewhere special, sit back and enjoy!

Sneek Peek - NEW cloth bags


This morning we took delivery of some samples of our new cloth bags we are going to be selling in our shops - WOW they are gorgeous. I can't decide between the cheeky Noix de Tubereuse pink or the rather chic L'air de Rien khaki, what a nice dilemma to have...

Available in all our shops from Friday 9th April

Our NEW blog!

Well, we've finally decided that too many wonderful things go on here at Miller Harris, other than our fragrances, and that it was time to share them with you.

This is an exciting year for us as it is our 10th anniversary! It seems only yesterday that we opened a small shop in Needham Road selling just three different fragrances, coeur de fleur, terre de bois and citron citron, little did we know that all of these fragrances would go on to become such classics. We now have three shops and sell our fragrances all over the world.

We have some really great things planned to celebrate, we have some amazing additions to our classic fragrances, special one offs and we will be popping up at some summer festivals with our fragrant tea, cakes and lots of goodies, as more details are confirmed you will be the first to know.
