James Heeley

As a designer influenced by nature, it only made sense that James Heeley was fascinated by the world of perfume. It was in France, through his design work, that the young Englishman discovered how perfumes are “designed” and made.

Self-taught, his constantly evolving oeuvre now contains a diverse collection of unique scents, each crafted according to the art of traditional French perfumery. Every detail, from the creation of the fragrance to the recyclable packaging, is designed “in-house”. Today, Heeley is one of the few founding owners of an independent luxury perfume house in Europe. It is this independence that allows him all the audacity in terms of creation.

Born in Yorkshire, England, James Heeley studied philosophy and aesthetics at King’s College, University of London. He lives and works in Paris.
