Under the direction of Miller Harris MD, Sarah Rotherham and McQueens founder Kally Ellis, the scents have been drawn from the atmosphere behind the scenes at McQueens Floristry HQ in Bethnal Green, London. Each of the candles represent different elements of the bustling workshop, whilst staying relevant to the purity of flowers and foilage.
Presented in artisanal ceramic pots, each can be used as a vessel for flowers once the candle has finished burning.
Where the magic happens and designers with sap stained hands craft fronds and bend boughs into bouquets, discarded foliage exudes herby notes and aromatic lavender is strewn on benches, creating a green, powdery, safe and peaceful scent.
Top notes: Bergamot, Green Stem, Dew, Humus, Peppermint, Rosemary, Angelica, Pistachier Middle notes: Water Lily, Muguet, Orris Base notes: Cedarwood, sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber, Musk, Moss
A thousand trimmed stems scattered sappy and simple with moist air and dew create jewels of renewal. A scented haven of greenness and life. Life growing verdant, a fragrant bouquet to quieten the city’s noise.
Top notes: Bergamot, Artemisia, Olibranum, Humus, Hay Middle notes: Lavender, Orris Base notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber
Petals are swirling in the wind with lightness and very little weight, moist with scent, delicate as memory, sensual as a breath. This candle seasons sumptuous white florals with pink pepper on an evocative base of amber and musk.
Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli, Dew, Mimosa, Black Pepper, Pink Pepper Middle notes: Water Lily, Gardenia, Wisteria, Muguet Base notes: Amber, Musk
This partnership begun two years ago when Miller Harris and McQueens collaborated on the perfumers’ In Bloom campaign. Both Sarah and Kally share a similar creative vision that is borne out of an appreciation of nature, craft, environment and of course scent.
Each candle will be available in all Miller Harris stores and online from Thursday 30th May,priced £65 each, until stocks last.
