Miller et Bertaux
Once upon a time, Miller et Bertaux
Paris 1985 – Miller et Bertaux was born.
Partners in life, artists and great travellers, Francis Miller and Patrick Bertaux put their suitcases in Paris, in the Marais. They open a shop to show their creations of clothing and objects they bring back from their travels. Some poetic words written on the white walls, large strokes of paint thrown ‘à la Pollock’. The stage is set.
Soon, they complete this universe with scents they imagine as artist-craftsmen. A bouquet of flowers resting on the ground, a besides market, a rose on the ear of an Oriental man, the smoke of a Mexican church … It is in their lives and journeys that they find the best pictures, the best stories that they transform into perfumes for women and men, regardless of gender.
“Fragrances for the body and the soul, dedicated to those who choose the balance of being and appearance.” Paris 2015, thirty years later. Francis Miller and Patrick Bertaux are dedicated to perfume and regularly demonstrate their artistic work during performances / readings / installations.
In the inventory of the Miller et Bertaux collection, they add a line of fragrances and candles for the home.
A house that they conceive opened, besides memory, experience and rare moments. A refuge house, as their own.
