The Ultimate Love Match

Miller Harris x McQueens

Regular readers of the McQueens blog will know that we’re not just obsessed with the beauty of flowers, but also their powerful scents. From the sweetness of a garden rose to the heady aroma of jasmine, our sense of smell can transport us to another place. This is why we’re delighted to have teamed up with one of our favourite purveyors of perfume, Miller Harris, to form the ultimate Valentine’s coupling – bouquets and scents!
Love Me Tender bouquet paired with Scherzo scent
Love Me Tender and Scherzo

The magenta and blue bundle of delicate anemones forms a perfect union with Scherzo, a fragrance inspired by a passage of text from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night.

An intensely vibrant perfume, full of colour and a rush of sweetness, Scherzo captures a multitude of blooms: dark red rose, and clouds of peony, sunny yellow narcissus and crisp white pittosporum. This makes it the perfect partner for our bright and beautiful Love Me Tender bouquet.

Juliet and Rose Silence

When it comes to the ultimate modern romance there could only be one pairing: our Juliet bouquet and Miller Harris’ s Rose Silence.

This signature McQueens floral triumph defies Valentine’s convention with an alluring concoction of peach roses, midnight scabious and seasonal hellebores; it mirrors perfectly the distinctive and multi-dimensional charm of Rose Silence. A sweet resonance of fruits – tangy blackcurrant and juicy mandarin – lifts the petals, whilst sandalwood and musk conjures up the sensual impression of warm skin.

Crazy in Love and Violet Ida

The hypnotic Crazy in Love bouquet is a seductive combination of pink, red and black roses, punctuated with deep purple tulips. Its beauty and depth can only be matched by the exquisite Violet Ida fragrance from Miller Harris.

Violet Ida takes Ida Arnold, the big-hearted heroine of Graham Greene’s Brighton Rock, as its muse. Ida loves to wear violets in her hair, and she is the embodiment of glamour, goodness, tenacity and courage In Greene’s classic novel. With our Crazy in Love, it’s a match made in heaven.
