Italian Bergamot, Green Moss
Bulgarian Rose, Patchouli
Incense, Amber, Vetiver, Musk
Hippie Rose is a very polished, smooth translation of the rose-patchouli idea, so if the name has lead you to believe this will be a very earthy, wild rose, with masses of incense smoke and chewy, voluptuous amber, you’ll be taken by surprise. Hippie Rose is more like a rock’n’roll song hummed along by a pretty, soft voice. The lovely bergamot at the beginning casts a beautiful citric glow over the delicately fresh rose heart, while the moss lends a bit of verdant, earthy funk to the proceedings. The pale pink rose holds hands with a tame, cleaned up patchouli, definitely not the kind you might remember from the sixties. Finally a gentle flurry of incense and amber, joined by a hint of warm, definitely carnal, musk wrap everything in a tender, sensual embrace.
Hippie Rose doesn’t really break loose from the usual elegance and refinement of the Heeley line, yet it is slightly bohemian and nonchalant, just in a very sophisticated, chic way and as such it will help you sail with confidence through any occasion, be that office work, glamourous party or casual weekends in the company of friends.
As a designer influenced by nature it was quite logical that James Heeley should be fascinated by the world of scent. It was in France, through his design work that the young Englishman discovered how scents are ‘designed’ and made.
One of his first scents, Menthe Fraîche (2006) is remarkable as a contemporary, elegant and highly wearable scent created from such a simple yet difficult ingredient: mint. With time his beautifully constructed, natural, light scents evolved into more complex creations such as Cardinal, Esprit du Tigre, Cuir Pleine Fleur and his recent collection of ‘Extrait de Parfum’.
As an autodidact, his continually evolving work now contains a varied collection of unique scents, each made according to the art of traditional French perfumery. Every detail, from the creation of the scent to the recyclable packaging is designed ‘in house’. Today, Heeley is one of the few owner-founder, and independent luxury perfume houses in Europe. It is this independence that allows the creative freedom to create individual scents that are simply unique.
