Independent label James Heeley have released a new perfume called Hippie Rose which was reportedly 5 years in the making. The scent takes up the challenge of tackling an often-smellled accord, rose-patchouli, to give it a new twist, apparently.
Images of the California desert conflates with those of hippies visiting temples in the Himalayas while the psychedelic period is paid homage to on the bottle...
The dusky rose color of the jus is meant to be an allusion to hippie gatherings on the beaches to watch the sun rise. Heeley never went to India so instead he wanted to give his interpretation of the Orientalist, hippie influence in the 1970s in America.
The composition is described as being delicate and fresh and wants to capture Heeley's ideal of a woman: simple yet intriguing in her complexity.
Notes: bergamot, green moss / Bulgarian rose, patchouli / incense, Haitian vetiver, musk, amber.
