Eau Eau Eau it's magic!

Sneak Peek...due to launch in June and the magnificent Eaux. As our major way of marking our 10th birthday, the four classic fragrances have been re-worked into eau parfumee - they are divine. In big chunky 200ml bottles you can splash them on with carefree abandon or dance inside a mist of the most wonderful twist on your favourite fragrance.

My favourite, Coeur de Fleur has an extra dash of a white flower accord and orange blossom added to it's already wonderful notes of sweet pea, mimosa and raspberry leaf.

Launching in June....

I'm leaving on a jet plane....

This has been a funny old week in London, with clear blue skies, sunshine and not a plane in the sky - all rather mad considering there is a huge a volcano that has caused this tranquil state of affairs!
The planes are back, and normal service is almost resumed.

So off to Heathrow!
We have been selling our Classic fragrances and candles in Terminal 5 and 4 since the middle of last year, and launched in Terminal 1 this week. We are in this amazing area called 'cocoon' which has lots of lovely body products in and a huge table where you can get a hand massage. In the middle of all the noise of the terminal this is a wonderful oasis.
Do pop in for a hand massage with Citron Citron lotion if you are on route to somewhere glamorous.

We have a rather a massive obsession with tea in our office, so much so that we have catering packs of our fragrant tea delivered in to feed our habit! Bergamot is the current favourite. The only issue we are having this afternoon is that we're not near the tea room anymore, so can't pinch any of their delicious Primrose Bakery cakes...ahhhh.

Flower Selling

We have wanted to sell flowers outside our Bruton Street store for quite a while now, and with spring in the air, and a glorious sunny day, we decided that today was the day!
I love going to Covent Garden Flower Market early in the mornings, it feels like secret London. The flowers there today were stunning, great boxes of ranunculus, daffodils and heavenly scented roses. Rows of rosemary bushes, bay trees and tumbling ivy make it so hard to decide what to buy for the shop.
Having found an old apple crate to put the plants in I was drawn to geraniums/pelargoniums as ever, see previous posts, and then added a tray of the prettiest lilac violas.
So if you are in the area, do pop into the shop and pick up a little pot of spring flowers for your desk, window sill or garden...

Liberty of London

Here at Miller Harris we hold a special place in our hearts for the beautiful store that is Liberty. When we started 10 years ago, Liberty was the first place to stock us, and we have continued to have a strong relationship with them. In 2002 we launched an exclusive fragrance with them called Rose en Noir. It is a wonderful sultry mix of dark Turkish rose, black pepper and violet leaf with hints of spicy cumin and corriander and a warm base of patchiouli - delicious!

Anyway, as fans of Liberty, we love the new Liberty of London for Target collection, especially the fantastically kitch, retro piggy bank and the gorgeous, plum coloured tote bag. There are bicycles, picture frames, clothes, storage and much more all available either in Target stores if you live in the States, or from Liberty direct. Happy, inexpensive, Spring pleasures!

Travels with my candle!

So the Geranium Bourbon candle in the previous post is proving to be such a hit it is being taken as a gift to the far flung corners of this island, this gorgeous candle is bringing some Spring-time magic to a rather snowy Scotland...
