First a Bag, Now a Fragrance Inspired by the Stylish Jane Birkin

Lyn Harris of Miller Harris London has just released a very vanilla-y, oriental-smelling fragrance inspired by Jane Birkin. Style icon Birkin is a legendary actress, singer, model, and humanitarian, as well as the inspiration behind the legendary Hermes Birkin Bag, which has the distinction of having the longest waiting list for any luxury item in history (about six years at its peak).

It has been Birkin's lifelong dream to create her own scent, and now it's finally here. She worked alongside Harris to ensure perfection and even sketched the William Blake-style nymphs that appear on the bottle and the packaging. Called L'air De Rien, the fragrance is intended to reflect Brikin's passions. The very earthy fragrance can be worn "like a veil over one's body," hence the name, which literally translates to "the air of nothing." It's an exquisite fragrance blended with amber, vanilla, neroli, oak moss, and musks. You can buy the perfume here for £75.00, or call (212) 940-2145 to buy a 3.4-ounce bottle for $180.
