Miller et Bertaux Oh, ooOoh …oh ~ new fragrance

Miller et Bertaux Oh, ooOoh ...oh

Niche line Miller et Bertaux has introduced Oh, ooOoh ...oh (mist, wood, wind and guitar):

Oh, ooOoh ...oh from Miller et Bertaux is an eau de parfum composed like a folk ballad in which the chords lead us along the street.

In California, along the coasts.
A wood home in front of the sea barely visible.
A veil of fog.
A fire burning in the fireplace
A gin tonic
The smell of withered grass
Around the huge, US nature
Artemisia bushes, juniper tree
The big red trees, the sequoias.
Down there, beyond the plain, spirals of sacred smokes rise from an Indian camp.
The night smells of bitter orange flowers

Oh, ooOoh …oh
A voice arises. That of a free cowboy, a poet.
With a stone he carved a heart on the bark of a cedar tree

Oh, ooOoh …oh
A perfume of wind, wood, fog and guitar

Oh, ooOoh …oh
Folk, natural and sexy

Miller et Bertaux Oh, ooOoh ...oh is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found now at First in Fragrance in Germany, €94.

    Lol, LooOol … lol


  2. Janet says:

    Where is a music video when you need one?
    Oh, ooOoh …oh!

  3. Erin says:

    Do you think you’re actually driving niche creation now? This must have been created purposefully for the Prix Eau Faux. Mist, wood, wind and guitar? The Indian Camp? Noone will top this. Is it April 1st? Have I been in a coma? Do I speak English? What language is this?

    • Robin says:

      Ha! They want to win the gift certificate :-)

    • Rappleyea says:

      ROTFL!! And so true!

  4. 50_Roses says:

    With a name like that, I would expect it to smell like an owl ;)

  5. JolieFleurs says:

    Dear God, this is insane.The name is just batcrap stupid, but they copy….. maybe it sounds better in French?

    Does anyone else hear the Braves Tomahawk Chop when they see the title?

    • Lucy says:

      I do now! This is going to be in my head all day.

  6. Lucy says:

    I’m having more fun reading this as a poem than a folk song…narrated by Brad Pitt. :)

    • KateReed says:

      Or William Shatner.

      • Thalia says:

        OH! (oooh oh) — I’d pay cash money to hear Shatner read this.

    • Emily says:

      Has anyone else heard that intensely dour and mannered recording of T.S. Eliot reading “The Waste Land”? I think his intonation and delivery would be ideally suited to this ad copy. (Especially see lines 128-130: “O O O O that Shakespearean Rag / It’s so elegant / So intelligent”)

  7. Abyss says:

    – I like your perfume, what’s it called?
    – !!!

  8. Hmm, maybe legalizing pot isn’t such a good idea after all…

    • Emily says:

      “spirals of sacred smoke” … mmm hmm.

  9. Thalia says:

    Ah, yes — the Indian camps and cowboys and big red trees of California — and all around the huge, US nature …

  10. VanMorrisonFan says:

    I like the gin and tonic part…are there refills?

  11. fakejazzz says:

    dear everyone on this website can anyone tell me if iti s possible to contact someone like private message i cant figure out how to do this thank you

    • JolieFleurs says:

      fakejazz, there is no private message function as far as I’m aware.

  12. Emily says:

    This is quite possibly the daftest chunk of verbiage ever composed in the entire history of human endeavor.

    • Emily says:

      (and I am speaking as someone who wrote a B.A. thesis on a book-length 18th-century poem written by an inhabitant of a London insane asylum; and then went to grad school to study experimental literature)

      • Thalia says:

        Oh, oh! Jubilate Agno? Someone should do a perfume called My Cat Jeoffrey — I’d wear that.

        • Emily says:

          Yes, it was Jubilate Agno! And I would be a sucker for ANY Jeoffrey-themed products.

      • NinaraPoll says:

        *bows reverently to you*


        • Emily says:

          Ha! Quite unnecessary, I assure you. :)

    If you look at the Miller et Bertaux line – they all have non-traditional names. What sets this fragrance apart is the inspiration – California/west coast Americana .. as opposed to eastern mysticism/spirituality.

    I was in Paris last month and bumped into both of them at their store. Last year, I bought “close your eyes, and .. ” and its a contemplative fragrance for me. I was flummoxed when I realized that the two guys in the store WERE Miller and BErtaux – we chatted a good bit. They let me smell the fragrance and it was something quite special.

    Yes, the copy is a bit quirk.. and easy to laugh at .. but if you go back and read their other ad copy – it strangely fits.

    • Regina says:

      I’m in your camp – perhaps an Indian camp? – I love all the M&B fragrances, especially A quiet morning and Green green green & green, and so however ridiculous the copy is, this is a must-try for me.

  14. Marjorie Rose says:

    Would the lighter flanker be Eau Oh OooOooh oh?

    If they made if for clowns. . . Bozo Oohooh oh?

    At a diner. . . cuppa Joe ohooh oh?

    If Homer Simpson were the cover model, Oh DohOooh oh?

    • AnnE says:

      I’ve often wished for an emoticon of a Felix the Cat laugh – you know, the one where he’s leaning backwards holding both his hands over his belly. LOL!

    • Emily says:

      Would Oh DohOooh oh smell like Duff beer?

      • Marjorie Rose says:

        With a hint of old couch!

        Actually, I can’t quite scrub the image of Homer Simpson lounging in a field of flowers like a perfume model! Or maybe sauntering down a glass staircase to meet a tiger? :D

        Or maybe he should perform the Brad Pitt Chanel monologue?

  15. CobraRose says:

    Ooo-ee-oo-aa-ah, ting tang, walla walla bing bang.

  16. NinaraPoll says:

    I’m still too busy laughing to attempt a coherent comment. Thank you so much for this!


  17. body67 says:

    this must be the stupidest name ever!! predict a major fail and no sales based on their idiotic choice which will make them change it a few months down the line (hopefully).

  18. Omega says:

    Pillsbury Dough Boy likes the name..’ooooh ahhh oooh poppin’ fresh dough.’ Member those commericals? lol

    The smell of wind, does wind smell? I mean unless you’ve eaten bad Mexican food?

    • Emily says:

      Okay, I will henceforth be unable to think of this perfume name NOT being pronounced by the Doughboy. And I have a new appreciation for Uncle Serge’s restraint in naming Jeux de Peau.
