Miller Harris is a prestigious British fragrance house, founded in 2000, with the aim of creating custom fragrances. The brand has committed to using beautiful natural materials while taking creative boundaries. So who is behind this highly acclaimed unique brand? Here is all the information. The Miller Harris brand was founded by the groundbreaking perfumer Lyn Harris who grew up in Yorkshire and Scotland. She practiced perfume with Monique Schleinger in Paris, then worked with Robert Begrass. In 2000, Harris created Miller Harris' perfume and candle line with her partner Christoph Michelle. The line is known for fragrances like L'Air de Rien that Harris originally created as a custom-made fragrance for Jane Birkin. In 2012, the London private equity fund Neo Capital acquired part of the company, and even did so in 2014. Harris, who remained a consultant and shareholder in Miller Harris, then shifted its focus to a new venture. The aesthetic for the Miller Harris brand perfumes was inspired by stories, memories and the finest natural ingredients. And she attests to herself that since she was a very young girl she has always been fascinated by fragrances. During her school holidays she worked in a perfume shop in her hometown. In those days the field of perfume was intended only for the elite, and the place was very magnificent which left its mark on it. Her other memories relate to the days when she would spend her summer vacation with her grandparents in Scotland. Then she would wake up to the smell of baking fresh bread. In addition, at that time there were other interesting fragrances like open fires, homemade jams and the like. Her grandmother used to take care of the flower garden around the house which was surrounded by a wall with many types of roses, geranium flowers and sweet pea flowers. Therefore, apparently to this day her senses are constantly inhabited by the smells around her. So it is no wonder that almost fatalistically she later decided to travel to Paris to specialize in perfumery. Lyn Harris attests to herself leading a very normal lifestyle. "My day starts at 6:30 in the morning. I get up to make breakfast and then I take my child Henry to school. So I'll go to my office or lab which is in beautiful Notting Hill. The lab is under one of the Miller Harris stores so, great to see and talk to all The regular customers when I work there. " As for the style of dress: "I like simple clothes in a good shape and also invest in some classic items. Jeans! I like jeans. I like APC, Martin Margilla, Celine and New Balance. One of my favorite places in the whole world is a shop "The army's surplus in a bitter sur in the UK called Top Cat. I've been going there for 25 years and buying all my coats from them. The last time I went there I really found and bought some amazing closets that I have in my front room." Which Miller Harris fragrances does she prefer? "It's very difficult to choose a favorite Miller Harris fragrance because I love them all," says Lyn. "I can't really smell them during the week when I work in the lab because it interferes with the creation of new things," she explains. If you will in this case the shoemaker goes a bit barefoot, but finally she confesses: "Right now, I love La Feuille as this scent resonates in so many different moments in my life." So where does she get her works from for inspiration? "All the fragrances I create evoke some memory. Life is where I draw my inspiration from," she adds.
