Un Petit Rien is composed on the same theme as l’Air de Rien, but here it’s been done as an eau, a cologne. recognize the original fragrance’s emblematic ingredients: neroli, oak moss and musks. But the notes have been reworked in such a way as to make the fragrance clearer and “shinier”, particularly at the close, where the moss blends with vanilla and amber at first.

At a glance

A gentle breeze blows over l’Air de Rien


Un Petit Rien is the second fragrance born of the friendship between Jane Birkin and Lyn Harris, the founder of Miller Harris. For this flanker, Jane asked Lyn for a lighter, more transparent scent, less sensual and oriental. So this perfume is clearer and more sparkling, representing both its muse’s mysterious side and her luminous one as well. The fragrance’s name has a secret meaning, since it refers to Serge Gainsbourg’s somewhat melancholy song, ‘Ces Petits Riens’ (“Little Nothings”).


Eau de Cologne 50 ml.


You’ll recognize the l’Air de Rien bottle, but the dark green color has been dropped in favor of a lighter shade. Jane Birkin’s drawings of nymphs and flowers have been reprised in this clearer version.

    Vraiment, j'aime bien ce concept. Il me faudrait tester l'Air de Rien et Un Petit Rien.

    Such an Icon, Jane Birkin, making a much lighter oriental. She knows women and trends but prefers classic forms and loves a bit of whimsy. I must try Un Petit Rien by Miller Harris. The transparent bottle is an indication of a transparent scent.
