British perfume house Miller Harris is preparing to introduce a new perfume in May 2009 called Fleurs de Bois in its Ligne de Parfum collection. It was inspired to perfumer Lyn Harris by strolls taken through the secret garden in Regent's Park in London and, more generally, the traditional charm exuded by an English garden after the rain...
Fleurs de bois is described as a green and woody floral bouquet which is both "timeless" and "chic",
Top notes open on dewy green blades of grass, Sicilian lemon, green tangerine and rosemary leading on to a heart of rose, jasmine and iris composing a traditional English bouquet. The base notes linger on with oakmoss, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and birch accents.
"Flowers and herbs mingle with exotic myrrh, precious woods and resins to create this many-layered bouquet of seductive complexity. "
A 100 ml bottle is priced at £70 and a 50 ml bottle at £52.
