FORAGE with Miller Harris

Mouse over to read the story

London, our home, is 47% green space. Just as the city stretches ever further, taking grey steps out into nature, so nature finds ways to break through the cracks in the pavement, to occupy corners or thrive in parks.
 
A brave daisy manages to split the pavement, ferns and footholds on walls and honey bees embark from the roofs of brutalist architecture to harvest sweet pollen.

Three innovative and highly evocative fragrances
inspired by the concept of urban foraging.

London, our home, is 47% green space. Just as the city stretches
ever further, taking grey steps out into nature, so
nature finds ways to break through the cracks in the pavement,
to occupy corners or thrive in parks. A brave daisy manages to split the

from the roofs of brutalist architecture to harvest sweet pollen.

“We worked with urban foragers who understand the scents, tastes and secret treasures that nature in the city provides.

We were inspired by this. We are of the city and we are natural.
 
So, we worked with urban foragers who understand the scents, tastes and secret treasures
that nature in the city provides to create perfumes which interpret that magic.
 
From the city's rooftops to the hidden, lush green spaces of
the capital, our perfumers then explored hidden enclaves in the urban landscape
to create LOST (in the City), WANDER (through the Parks),
and DANCE (amongst the Lace)

DANCE amongst the LACE

DANCE amongst the Lace captures the surprising freshness and unique scent of cow parsley, also known as Queen Anne's Lace.

A crisp and invigorating duo of minty notes blended with mouthwwateringlime and zesty verbena, with a lush base of vetiver and moss 

LOST in the CITY

Ferns force their way through walls and concrete, their green intensity splashing vibrantly against the grey backdrop of buildings. In LOST, this intense verdancy is contrasted with the sharp pink snap of wild rhubarb, making the senses fizz.

WANDER through the PARKS

Stinging nettles spring up all over London, producing a unique, sparkling green scent. Before they flower their spiky greens are smoothed, the sappy earthiness of the stems blend with zesty fruits. A beautiful unisex fragrance with fresh notes of Pink Grapefruit and Juicy Mandarin to balance the green, sappy Nettle.

From our Journal...
 
Nature is everywhere. Even in the unlikeliest of places. We just need to know where to look. We also have to trust our instincts. And it’s this sense of discovery – of going beyond the expected – that makes urban foraging so alluring.
 

To celebrate our commitment to nature and our respect for those who constantly source the best ingredients, Miller Harris have launched a new range. Forage presents three perfumes inspired by the botanical treasures around us. These are Hidden, Lost and Wander. The brief to our perfumers was to create fragrances using only ingredients which can be discovered wild in London.

"This did I feel, in London's vast domain

The Spirit of Nature was upon me there"

William Wordsworth
