The heady glamour of 1930s French riviera is recreated in our best selling fragrance, bursting with fruits, flowers and shimmering sunshine.
An intensely vibrant scent, full of colour, depth and a rush of sweetness, Scherzo captures a multitude of blooms: dark red rose, clouds of peony, sunny yellow narcissus and crisp white pittosporum. The sweetness of tangerine is offset by the intoxicating purple richness of davana, which adds a twist of liquor to the scent. The base shimmers with oudh, earthy patchouli and a sprinkling of sugar to capture the feeling of a confectioner’s window.
Launched in 2018, Scherzo is inspired by a passage of text in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night. This short passage was the only thing given to perfumer Mathieu Nardin as the brief for the fragrance to be created. The resulting perfume has gone onto become an instant classic and bestseller in our house of fragrances at Miller Harris. Head Notes: Tangerine, davana Heart Notes: Olibanum, narcissus, pittosporum, dark rose, peony Lasting Impressions: Patchouli, vanilla, oudh, sweet note.
