SCHERZO

Scherzo is the first Miller Harris fragrance to derive inspiration from the world of literature. Launched in 2018, Scherzo is inspired by a passage of text in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, 'Tender is the Night'. This short passage was given to perfumer Mathieu Nardin as the brief for the fragrance to be created.

“…She walked on, between kaleidoscopic peonies massed in pink clouds, black and brown tulips and fragile mauve stemmed roses, transparent like sugar flowers in a confectioner’s window.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald

WITH GRETA BELLAMACINI

The resulting perfume has gone on to become an instant classic and bestseller in our house of fragrances at Miller Harris. The fragrance takes its cue from Fitzgerald's description of the heroine; young actress Rosemary Hoyt strolling against a symphony of bright flowers in glorious summer sunshine.
 
Perfumer Mathieu says that "when i read a book, I can smell what I'm reading, the sense of what the writer is describing - the location, the French Riviera and the wonderful descriptions of sun, sea and heat influenced me to find my own colours and palette for the book in order to fill out the background for the fragrance.
 
"Scherzo " is named after a musical term meaning a small extract taken from a larger work such as a symphony.
