Classically trained British perfumer Lyn Harris founded luxury fragrance house Miller Harris 11 years ago. Since then, she’s become known for her bath and body products, candles and scents.

More recently, she’s branched out into other lifestyle areas such as fragrant teas, olive oils and wallpaper, and later this year she’s launching a new homes range. She lives in London with her husband, Christophe, and five-year-old son, Henri. Here, she shares a few of her style secrets.

  1. My favourite fashion designers Martin Margiela and APC. I love Margiela’s tailoring and the timelessness of his pieces. They fit with my lifestyle because l can wear his clothes from daytime right through to evening. I go to APC for great basics such as jeans and shirts.
  2. I’ve just bought Massive Attack’s album Heliga Land, which I’m listening to in my lab and at home.
  3. I’m obsessed with tea. I’ve created a range with Tim O’Duffy of Postcard Teas and I can’t live without ‘The Bergamot’, which has hints of tangerine and vanilla.
  4. I’m quite fanatic about finding a really good dark chocolate bar. I love to shop at Rococo Chocolates.
