Heeley Chypre 21 100ml
As from the early 20th century onwards, the chypre accord has undoubtedly been regarded as the quintessential French perfume. Chypre 21 however, is a creation for the 21st century whereby the main ingredients of a classic chypre: Bergamot, rose, patchouli, sandalwood and oak moss have been reworked to create a contemporary, unisex fragrance. The scent leaves behind a wonderful, slightly nostalgic trail with a certain air of Parisian chic that would have been familiar to the likes of Jackie Onassis, Grace Kelly and of course the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
♂ A made to measure, super 150s, grey flannel suit.
♀ Hand on hip, multicoloured tweed, powdered nose.

How to apply
Apply perfume at places where you feel your heartbeat. The inside of the elbow and in the knee cavity for example, or on your wrists and in your neck. With a spray bottle, spray 1 or 2 times in the air and walk through the 'perfume cloud' that arises to perfume your hair. Hair is a good carrier of perfume, it holds the perfume very well. Reapply, depending on your mood.
About the brand
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.
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.
Born in Yorkshire, England, James Heeley studied Philosophy and Aesthetics at King's College, London University. He lives and works in Paris.
