Miller Harris and McQueens launch a luxury fragranced candle collection inspired by the scents of McQueens Flowers’ London workroom.
This Spring, London perfumer Miller Harris has partnered with luxury floral brand McQueens to create three beautiful limited-edition scented candles. Each candle is fragranced with an evocative new floral scent inspired by the prestigious flower shop.

Under the direction of Miller Harris MD, Sarah Rotherham and McQueens founder Kally Ellis, the scents have been drawn from the atmosphere behind the scenes at McQueens Floristry HQ in Bethnal Green, London. Each of the candles represent different elements of the bustling workshop, whilst staying relevant to the purity of flowers and foliage.
Presented in pretty artisanal ceramic pots lined with corresponding colours, each can be used as a vessel for flowers once the candle has finished burning.
Where the magic happens and designers with sap stained hands craft fronds and bend boughs into bouquets, discarded foliage exudes herby notes and aromatic lavender is strewn on benches, creating a green, powdery, safe and peaceful scent.
Top notes: Bergamot, Green Stem, Dew, Humus, Peppermint, Rosemary, Angelica, Pistachier
Middle notes: Water Lily, Muguet, Orris
Base notes: Cedarwood, sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber, Musk, Moss
A thousand trimmed stems scattered sappy and simple with moist air and dew create jewels of renewal. A scented haven of greenness and life. Life growing verdant, a fragrant bouquet to quieten the city’s noise.
Top notes: Bergamot, Artemisia, Olibranum, Humus, Hay
Middle notes: Lavender, Orris
Base notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber
Petals are swirling in the wind with lightness and very little weight, moist with scent, delicate as memory, sensual as a breath. This candle seasons sumptuous white florals with pink pepper on an evocative base of amber and musk.
Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli, Dew, Mimosa, Black Pepper, Pink Pepper
Middle notes: Water Lily, Gardenia, Wisteria, Muguet
Base notes: Amber, Musk
This partnership began two years ago when Miller Harris and McQueens collaborated on the perfumers’ In Bloom campaign. Both Sarah and Kally share a similar creative vision that is borne out of an appreciation of nature, craft, environment and of course scent.
Each limited edition candle is available in all Miller Harris stores and online, priced £65 each, until stocks last.
