The best things seem to come in threes. In the case of Miller et Bertaux, the maxim makes no exception. The French designers/parfumers Francis Miller et Patrick Bertaux established a visionary design house in the historical Parisian district of Le Marais in 1985, whose modern design sensibilities have combined with a keen olfactory sense that soon established a small but dedicated cult following behind their fragrances. Though largely unfamiliar to people outside of Paris, these hard-to-find fragrances have since made their way across the Atlantic and into Gravitypope Tailored Goods' apothecary cabinet.
Ã¡ porter ensemble
Scents that can be worn together or separately by both women and men, these three fragrances remain distinctly unique from one another and yet are surprisingly complimentary. Keep in mind that these are all eau de parfums, meaning they last longer than their eau de toilette counterparts. As the initial scent dries down and combines with your own body chemistry, you'll discover the true richness of the fragrances through their evolution. (Rather than butcher the poetics through a poor English translation, I left the scent descriptions in their native language...)
