Minimalist elegance, French style and English understatement

Englishman James Heeley hails from Yorkshire. After taking a degree in Philosophy and Aesthetics at London’s King’s College, he now merges these two passions with design and perfumes in Paris, his adopted home and domain. A fastidious, detail-driven approach is evident in his interiors, product and packaging design concepts, and the hugely successful fragrances that he creates in his capacity as perfumier.

Composed using only pure, natural ingredients, his scents generally cultivate unisex appeal and are conceived as a tribute to the classic French “Art of Perfume”. James Heeley’s blends have the power to evoke an image, reminiscence, emotion or sense of desire. “Esprit du Tigre”, “Sel Marin” or “Cardinal” – each of the altogether eleven eau de parfums is unique, individualistic and in part even eccentric, though invariably in a very discreet way. Heeley’s scents are clear-cut and balanced to perfection; they are as elegant as they are timeless. And they are always about style and attitude.

James Heeley’s own passion serves as the foundation for these expressive fragrances, which inspire moments that touch us both aesthetically and emotionally and also have the uncanny ability to decelerate the harried soul. James Heeley is a consummate virtuoso in conveying the language of scent to the wearer’s body, thus unfurling the spirit, the heart and the senses. Absolutely electrifying!
