The latest fragrance by Miller Harris, L'Air de Rien, was just recently launched in London. The nose behind the perfume is Lyn Harris. The new fragrance is dedicated to British actress Jane Birkin who is also French by adoption. We love the comments Birkin makes around her perfume and so we're reproducing them here from Vogue UK:...
"Birkin was in London for the launch of the new scent she has created with Miller Harris, L'air de Rien, and says she had the idea for it when she was at her brother Andrew's house in Wales experimenting with a perfume lab he had created for his forthcoming film, Perfume. "I have never liked perfumes," she says. "I have always preferred to carry pot pourri in my pocket. It was an interesting exercise in finding out what you don't like. All the things usually associated with heady, dark-haired women like hyacinth, tuberose and lily-of-the-valley made me vomit when they were enclosed in a bottle so this one is much more me � I wanted a little of my brother's hair, my father's pipe, floor polish, empty chest of drawers, old forgotten houses."You can read the rest of the article here.
Miller Harris also describes the fragrance on their website saying, "L'air de rien is a sensual translation of Jane Birkin's fascinating life. It is an exquisite oriental fragrance of amber, vanilla, neroli, oak moss and musks. Jane's intention was for the scent to reflect herself and her passions, an earthy fragrance to be worn simply, like a veil over one's body, hence the name L'air de rien."
The eau de parfum spray retails for 75 Pounds.
