Where on your body should you wear fragrance? As Coco Chanel famously said, "Wherever you want to be kissed!" In fact, the best spots are those where the circulatory system warms your skin up: your cleavage, the inside of your wrists, the base of your neck, behind your ears or in the crook of your elbow... And knowing that smells rise, you can also put a touch of scent on behind your knees or even around your belly button! Scarves and hair also hold scents well.
The fragrance’s powerfully spicy opening combines frankincense, cumin and elemi (a resinous note reminiscent of frankincense). The woody heart reveals Atlas cedar and birch’s smoky-leathery facets. The trail blends rockrose and amber with a smoke accord (the fragrance’s name means ‘smoke’).

A whiff of woody smoke
Spicy and woody, La Fumée is part of a pair of Miller Harris fragrances called ‘Contraste en harmonie’ (‘Harmonic Contrast’). Two fragrances that ‘echo the duality of darkness and light, warmth and cold, male and female,’ the English house explains. La Fumée unveils a mystical atmosphere, an impression of smoldering embers, a swirl of frankincense around dry woods. A fragrance for him, or for her.
Eau de Parfum 1.7 and 3.4 oz.; Scented Candle 6.5 oz.
