Gourmand, or sweet fragrances, all have a feeling similar to food – think almond, cherry, ripe fruits, candied sweets and delicious vanilla. An addictive style of perfumes, sweet or gourmand fragrances tend to create a rich trail that captures attention and lasts all day.
The perfect evocation of a pear orchard in early autumn, warm scents swirling in the golden light of the setting sun.
Poirier d'Un Soir is the scent of a golden sun setting upon a pear tree, the flowers closing and the warmth of Fall. Bewitching and elegant, Poirier d'Un Soir is a perfume of intrigue and memory. A distant bonfire crackles whilst you take in the last of the evening light, the scent of a mouthwatering pear tree beating down. Tagetes creates the scent of hay, whilst dusky Turkish rose and peony are accented by tangy blackcurrant and a swirl of caramel. The sensual warmth of ambrette rounds out this hedonistic delight.

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.
