NEW! NEW! NEW! Miller et Bertaux

.

Portia

Hi there Fragrance Family,

One of the houses that flies under everyones radar is Miller et Bertaux. I really love their lack of trend following and general wearable outrageousness. From people so obviously Arty they work really well to create unusual, challenging, mood altering scents that also can be worn as a daily go-to. My personal thought is that spritz volume makes the difference. When I’m home alone sometimes I do 15 chest spritzes so they fumes engulf me, it’s really trippy. In the world though my usual 5 or 6 spritzes is ample, for some the openings could still be formidable.

At Esxence in Milan this year as I was wandering through the overwhelming tunnel of scent I spied the miller et Beaux stand. Fortuitously the gent manning it was available and I wanted to tell him how much I loved their work. When I’m overwhelmed my social ability goes right out the window and so I walked up and blurted out with zero preamble how much I loved their brand and that I’d paid retail for three of their scents, and also had a backup of A Quiet Morning because something so exquisitely me could never last. So this handsome smiling man offers me the newest bottle in their range, that they’re launching. Embarrassed, I declined but when he offered a full set of the Miller et Bertaux range samples I jumped, knowing you guys would LOVE to try them too.

There is a part of me that associates this fragrance house with what niche could have been if greed, laziness and cynicism didn’t become the overriding factors.

Libertine has the range in Australia
Aedes has the range in the USA

Here’s a snapshot of the ones I’m giving away today. Many reviews to follow.

Miller et Bertaux

Fragrantica

New Study/Postcard 2017: Opening citrus is air mail adventure, the hearts warm fig is the arrival and dry down is a woodsy/sweet-fig-milk that could be the postcard on the fridge in the kitchen that gets looked at and brings a smile.

A Quiet Morning 2008: This saffron, turmeric, woods fragrance doesn’t seem so new nearly 10 years from its inception but though the imitators have tried they miss the sheer effortlessness and comfort of wearing A Quiet Morning.

Shanti Shanti 2008: Shanti (from Sanskrit शान्तिः śāntiḥ) means peace, rest. Rose, iris, spices and sandalwood, all backed by patchouli. It opens so cool and dewy before sizzling through the heart to a creamy, earthbound base.

For You/Parfum Trouvé EdP 1 2006: Sweet and spicy like Indian cooking, yet a dewy rose keeps the whole fragrance cool. Once the woods flow through they stay focused and linear till dry down. The perfumes idea is to be a base/dry down.

Spiritus/Land EdP 2 2006: Ahhhh, new incense sticks, soap and spices. Clean without the well worn connotations of marine and citrus. Like the ghosts of Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime Spiritus/Land floats through and above the earth.

Green, Green, Green and Green EdP 3 2006: HA! Surprise, surprise this is a super green fragrance, yet through all the broken leaf and twig shines some soft focus florals and sweet herbs. A soaring green, like the birds smell at the top of trees.

    Oooh! Thanks for the awesome giveaway Portia! The Green Green Green & Green sounds amazing so that would be my pick to try first.

    Lil xx

    P.s. I follow by email.

  2. Tena says:

    Love the idea of you being tongue tied 🙂
    I am really intrigued by Green, Green, Green and Green – nothing deep – I just like green

    I live in Canada and enjoy following you by email and FB

    Thanks so much for the draw.

  3. fanny says:

    I love Parfum Trouvé, which is the only one so far I have tried, recently.
    Green, Green, Green and Green looks very interesting, as does A Quiet Morning.
    Following by email, thanks for yet another brilliant giveaway!! 🙂

  4. Gina says:

    These are sound amazing. Since I can’t decide, I will mention the one I think I would like the least: green, because I dislike herbal. Probably fig second. I love fig but not that sharp throat-catching note many fig scents have. Love saffron, rose, spices, incense.

    Follow via Facebook and email

  5. Jackie b says:

    I know nothing of this house, so intriguing! I like the sound of Postcard 2017 and Quiet Morning. Follow by email and think I will be doing a bit of research online!

  6. Monica Beaton says:

    I follow and greedily study your posts via email. Very hard to choose just one of these beautiful scents, but if I have to, A Quiet Morning. There are some occasions when I simply want to be soothed by soft spice and wood – warm and comforting as a fluffy down comforter on a chilly winter morning.

  7. Jane says:

    Thanks for another awesome giveaway! I follow via email and FB 🙂

    Spiritus/Land sounds like my cup of tea. Incense, dreamtime…. that ethereal embodiment of the soul is a lot of what I seek in certain perfumes!

  8. Claudia S. says:

    Shanti Shanti sounds quite intriguing-rose, iris, and sandalwood, what’s not to love? Thanks for the draw Portia! Follow by email.

  9. Jaybee says:

    These all sound divine, though I like your description of A Quiet Morning. And Shanti Shanti because I’m a sucker for rose. Follow by email. 🙂

  10. MikasMinion says:

    Where have I been? Don’t know if I’ve ever registered this brand as something worth sniffing and I just love to meet a new line. I think that Postcard 2017 sounds best, but I’m crap at reading notes so I want to try them all. I follow via RSS. Thanks!

  11. Hage says:

    Thanks Portia, definitely for me it will be the Green Green Green. I follow via email and your wp blog.

  12. jac says:

    Hi, i saw your post in “eau my soul” and now follow your blog via email. Thanks for the giveaway. I own both spiritus/land and bois de gaiac et poire. I would be mainly interested in a quiet morning.

    Regards

  13. Kandice says:

    I follow via email. I think I would like to try Spiritus best. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. Rosie WG says:

    Spiritus / Land – reading the notes and reviews on Fragrantica, this one really speaks to me. I love any scent with a smoky aspect – smokiness can be such an adaptable thing. It can invoke space, airiness, the rougher aspects of the natural world; or it can be cosy and terribly human, pulling you in and comforting you with its closeness.

    I follow via email.

  15. Sue Mills says:

    Hi Portia, thank you so much for another lovely giveaway. I follow by email.
    I would love to try Shanti Shanti, not only for the notes, which sounds fabulous for someone who is a relatively new rose fanatic, but also for the beautiful name. Shanti – peace and rest. What a wonderful word that is.

  16. Koyel says:

    Oh wow, this company sounds lovely. A Quiet Morning sounds wonderful. Given how much you love it, I hope they keep it 🙂 I follow by e-mail.

  17. Samantha says:

    Hi Portia,
    Another great giveaway!
    I follow via APJ and Bloglovin.
    The one that has caught my attention is Parfum Trouvé. Sounds delicious!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  18. Ellen M. says:

    I follow by email. How can you ask which ONE? They all interest me. Love the notes, and love your descriptions. I really can’t pick just one. Spiritus/Land maybe, but then again…A Quiet Morning…then again… Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. Robert H. says:

    Yaay!! I’ve never had a chance to explore their range, but Shanti sounds perfect!! Thanks Portia and Happy May Day! Follow by email. xoxo

    I would love to try New Study/Postcard 2017. It would be nice to find a fig scent, after trying several. In fact several of the others (A Quiet Morning and Green, Green, Green and Green) would be very interesting too.

    I follow via email.

  21. Stephen Khoo says:

    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity! I would be most interested in trying Green, Green, Green and Green because the more green, the better!

    I follow via email.

  22. JMR says:

    Shanty Shanty is right up my alley!

    I follow by email.

  23. Jeromew says:

    Hi,
    I follow via e-mail.
    A Quiet Morning holds the most interest for me, (although they all sound wonderful). Saffron – Yeah! It always makes me happy and there are not a lot of scents that utilize it well. This one sounds amazing.

  24. Betty Tourettes says:

    I follow your lovely blog on WordPress.

    The scent that intrigued me the most was New Study/Postcard 2017 as I am quite fond of fig these days

  25. Olga says:

    Following via Facebook. Shanty Shanty and quiet morning 🙂

  26. Ingrid says:

    I follow by email and I’m interested in any one of these fragrances. So far, I’m only acquainted with Om.

  27. HS says:

    Yay! Thanks for another giveaway!!
    They all sound fantastic but A Quiet Morning and the Green x4 sound like they could be new favourites!
    I follow by email. 🙂

  28. Anastasia says:

    The quiet morning and Shanti Shanti look very attractive for me, I’d really love to try!

    I’m following via email.

  29. Agnes says:

    Hi Portia,
    I’d love to receive a Postcard 😉
    I follow via email and facebook.
    Good luck to everyone. x

  30. Rajeeva Jayaratne says:

    i follow by this email.
    i like the A Quiet Morning.

  31. BBMc says:

    Hi Portia, I have never tried any of their fragrances and I follow via email. I would love to try Shanti Shanti.

  32. Esz says:

    New Study/Postcard 2017 for me – I am a sucker for fig and milk and woods. Sounds divine! Though Spiritus/Land EdP 2 2006 also sounds pretty excellent.

    I follow via Feedly RSS reader 🙂

  33. Saffyishere says:

    …I agree this brand is underrated. Unique, complex and masterful. I own a bottle of Study #17. It seems I am with the majority and keen on trying the Green green green and green.
    I follow you via twitter and facebook.

  34. Nelle says:

    I follow by email and New Study/ Postcard 2017 seems like a fragrance that I would gravitate too! Thanks for introducing us to this lovely brand!

  35. Jc Loh says:

    I’m intrigued by Shanti Shanti, even the name sounds wonderful.

    Email subscriber, thank you.

  36. Lindaloo says:

    Following by email.
    I’m sure I would enjoy Green x4 but the Shanti Shanti sounds wonderful too. Choices of a first world kind. 😀
    Thanks for the generous draw offer.

  37. Latai says:

    New Study/Postcard interests me a lot because I love a good fig fragrance. I’ve tried Shanti Shanti from them and loved it.
    I also noticed that it’s been almost 10 years since they released a new fragrance. All the more reason to be excited about their new release.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Sorry Latai, they have released others but I’ve kept them for my own selfish sampling pleasure.

  38. Undina says:

    I don’t know how it happened but I haven’t heard about this brand… I’m a bad perfumista. In my defense I promise to try to get them for testing, especially the one, for which you got a back-up bottle (I’m impressed!)

    DNEM.

  39. Fazal says:

    A Quiet Morning 2008 seems intriguing. It looks like it will be safe to wear even in a country like Japan due to its clean woody feel. I follow APJ through email and Facebook.

  40. Katherine M says:

    Definitely New Study/Postcard 2017.. love a good fig fragrance.
    Though last time I wore one from L’artisan my sister thought I’d been on the wine the night before !! I was so insulted .. especially as she had gifted me that scent ….

    I follow via newsletter and facebook posts.
    many thanks 🙂

  41. ems says:

    Thanks as always for these giveaways! Would love to try Green, Green, Green and Green EdP 3 2006. My only sort of green fragrance is CB I Hate Perfume’s To See A Flower. Follow by email.

  42. Azsa says:

    A quiet morning sounds heavenly. Follow on email.

  43. Rene Groyer says:

    HiI follow by e mail,facebook and twitter and would enjoy to sample Shanti Shanti or the Green Green Green Green

  44. Malmaison says:

    Parfum Trouvé was one of the first fragrances to send me down the perfume rabbit hole but it’s still the only Miller et Bertaux I’ve managed to try – would love to sample more! I am particularly taken by the description and name of A Quiet Morning, saffron is one of my favorite perfume notes. I follow by email and Facebook – thanks for this great opportunity.

  45. Nemo says:

    All of these sound amazing, but Shanti Shanti 2008 sounds especially wonderful. I follow by email, thank you!

  46. lena says:

    It has to be Green, Green, Green and Green for me, though I rather like the sound of all of them!

    Thank you for the draw; I follow by email.

  47. Cath says:

    I follow by email. Shanti Shanti and Spiritus sound like my cup of tea. I’d love to try these. Thank you for the draw.
