I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


L’air de rien unveils earthy accents of oak moss and patchouli, and the velvety softness of musk infused in amber. Oriental, mouthwatering… the fragrance is wrapped in sweet notes of Tunisian neroli and vanilla.

The fragrance born of the encounter between designer Lyn Harris and singer-actress Jane Birkin


L’air de rien is the love child born of the mutual admiration designer Miller Harris and Jane Birkin – the Frenchest of English chanteuses – have for each other. The latter being unable to find a fragrance truly in her own image, Lyn Harris set herself the task of creating L’air de rien for her. Joining Lyn in her laboratory, Jane spoke of her vibrant lifestyle, her passions, her time spent in France. After a series of early drafts, a veritable olfactory signature, with earthy and Oriental accents was born. Jane left her mark on the bottle, in the form of sketches of nymphs, bringing an enchantingly personal note of fantasy. At selected points of sale. For more information: www.millerharris.com


Eau de Parfum, 3.4 fl. oz.


Like the box, the signature bottle, square with flower patters, is adorned with pictures of nymphs drawn by Jane Birkin.

    Love this! I only discovered it a few months ago. I couldn't put my finger on why I loved it so much for a month or so, then it came to me - this is the smell of a posh bohemian hippy (no surprise since Jane Birkin designed it!) but it's very specific for me - horses and saddles, Indian Nag Champa incense, worn in real wool scruffy jumpers with quite a hint of sweat and un-washed hair. There's a touch of civet but not like the floor of a toilet! I think it's the horsey note I love so much, I knew this took me back to childhood - I used to go horse riding and volunteered to work in a riding stable for a whole summer, so I really know this smell - comforting, grounding and animalic

    J'adore. Une douceur sur la peau, qui amplifie sa propre odeur. Doux, pas tranché, il nous emmène vers nulle part, là où on est paisible. Le départ est tranquille, un brin provocant, pour ne laisser ensuite, plus qu'une odeur de crème délicate, mais avec un soupçon de présence. Très joli.
