About the maker: Nancy Meiland is a perfumer and trained nose who shaped her career in bespoke perfumery, designing signature scent for those coveting something highly individual and special. PAPER LEAF is Nancy’s first collection of five fragrances as Nancy Meiland PARFUMS. She has created them as an ode to all she treasures, and her hope is that they come to mean the same to those who wear them.

A mystical and beguiling fougère, harnessing the flora & fauna of the Scottish Highlands, under the canopy of its highest-reaching pines and firs With a transparent, mineral opening of cypress, pin syvestre, rain accord and sweet gale, this coniferous scent glistens with alpine anemones as it unfolds into notes of bell heather, red clover, scots primrose, black hemlock, moss campion, birch tar, myrhh, labdanum and vetiver – the dry-down is sealed with a velvety accord of mosses, and deep, resinous woods that howl at the silver moon from the forest floor
