Hippie Rose


I am always amazed how beautifully Lena Brombacher can describe a perfume.  Her words entice and inspire.  I am drawn to this particular perfume because of her words.  I want to smell like this; like a "sophisticated hippie."

Behold the description of James Heeley's Hippie Rose:  

"inspired by India, the hippie movement, Jim Morrison and the beautiful actress Daria Halprin from the 70ies movie Zabriskie Point by Antonioni. The movie takes place in the beautiful sundrenched landscape of the Death Valley and there is a lot of dusk, a beautiful, suntanned girl with long, long hair and huge light blue eyes in a short olive dress – and a beautiful boy of course...

...Of course there is patchouli, but it is built on the idea of freedom, peace and love, it’s just the idea of the hippie era. Heeley managed to make it light and uplifting. The green notes dominate and the sugary elements of rose are contrasted by warm patchouli. To say that it is sweet would be an offense. No, it is mild and flowery with a touch of incense but not overpowering. Did you expect something else from James Heeley who would never annoy anyone with a perfume?"  ~~Lena Brombacher
