Close your eyes. Smell. You know it’s near, so near you can almost lick its taste off your lips. That briny, salty, cold taste you love so much. The taste of the days spent on a secret beach, with seagulls circling and calling one another above your head, high in the big blue of the sky. You’re hungry for it. The other big blue. One more step, and you’ve reached the top of the sandy hill, dotted with tuffs of wild, aromatic herbs. Yes, she’s there, she’s always going to be there. The Sea. Your Sea. That hidden small harbour, with a couple of rusty, algae covered fishing boats, and the sands on which you’ve lost, no, not lost, gained so many hours of delicious solitude.
This is how “Sel Marin” smells like. No more no less. It’s a striking, very naturalistic rendition of cool sea breeze, somewhere a bit wild and remote, maybe edged by a forest.
Perfect to wear during hot summers as it is very refreshing and never feels opressive, or just as a reminder of a summer dream on rainy, autumn days. Absolutely wonderful and the best aquatic fragrance money can buy.
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.
