A petitgrain charm
Orange, Lemon, Bergamot, Mandarine
Neroli, Petitgrain, Earl Grey Tea
This is an elegant yet fuss free variation on the classical Eau de Cologne genre, with luminous floral tones and some sensual depth given by ylang-ylang and vetiver. An efortless wear, it’s truly one of the best things you can put on your skin when you simply want to feel refreshed and energised with the added bonus of smelling nice.
The name of the fragrance is taken from the old rhyme “Oranges and Lemons” from cca 1740-we can’t help thinking that this is the year of birth for Marquis de Sade and the name of an Histoires de Parfums fragrance. Yes, we’re that obsessed about perfume. But we digress. The rhyme we were talking about refers to churchbells within or close to City of London.
“St. Clements” has the same charming ease and vivacity as children voices chanting funny rhymes while the bells of the city fill the air with their crystalline melody. Life has a way of being uncomplicated and beautiful when you least expect it.
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.
