What Does Myrica Muse Smell Like?
Created by Emilie Bouge, Myrica Muse Eau de Parfum opens with clean, just-ripe strawberries and tangerine. A flavour-enhancing dash of pink pepper sits nicely alongside bayberry - AKA myrica - to complete the top. The bayberry note has a peppery tone that adds a layer of spice before the heart unveils.
The heart is based around upcycled rose and patchouli, which creates a musky floral tone as they join with the airy lily of the valley and white floral jasmine. Finally, a dash of natural rum is added for a richer, warmer signature. Finally, the creamy, cosy and softly sensual vanilla and benzoin base rises to the surface alongside musk, amber and sandalwood.
Top notes are Strawberry, Bayberry, Pink Pepper, Tangerine. Heart notes are Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Patchouli, Rose, Rum. Base notes are Benzoin, Musk, Amber, Sandalwood, Vanilla.
Why It’s Escentual:
Miller Harris always create vivid stories that lie behind their fragrances, and their 2022 Eau de Parfum, Myrica Muse, is certainly no exception; it’s inspired by the ‘Aperitif moment’. On the way to the party, the ‘muse’ stops at a cafe to order a drink; they pause to reflect and read a few pages of a book before the night out draws them in.
As easy as it is for us to fall in love with the story and scent of Myrica Muse Eau de Parfum, we have to admit that we love the sustainability and ethos behind the fragrance just as much. The Myrica Muse fragrance prioritises sustainability; it’s not just vegan; it also features a duo of upcycled notes. The natural upcycled rose and patchouli oils are extracted from the by-product from an earlier extraction of the freshly harvested plant; this cuts the amount of fresh rose and patchouli needed. As a bonus, this sustainable approach means that farmers gain a yearly income as Miller Harris uses older botanicals from previous harvests, as opposed to only during peak season.
