A scent of a woman

After launching Miller Harris 15 years ago, perfumer Lyn Harris has followed her gorgeous nose to create bespoke fragrances in handblown bottles for a tailor-made sensory experience in London.

“It was nice to start with a clean piece of paper, to think about where and who I am. I needed to be able to stop and think. It’s so easy to get absorbed in the non-stop engine of something” Lyn said.

Surrounded by endless teak, polished brass and smoked glass, after a two-year creative journey Lyn Harris has finally opened the doors of her new project: Perfumer H. On the corner of Crawford Street in Marylebone, Harris’ new laboratory and store has been designed by architectural designers Retrouvius. It’s here that customers will be able to exclusively experience, create and ultimately walk away with Harris’s deliciously British new scents.

Perfumer H. plans to release new collections twice a year. The initial group includes five fragrances: Cologne, Rose, Velvet, Leather and Heliotrope. The Seasonal Editions will be complimented with a portfolio of Laboratory Editions, which customers can buy – even purchasing the formula, should they really fall in love with it. There are also five home fragrance candles. As ever, Harris will also be working with customers to create their own bespoke fragrances (priced from £15,000).

Its great to see that perfume creation does not always have to come from Paris!!! Yours, Fran
