Inspiration

A stunning and highly original perfume which transports us back 3000 years to the days of the great Phoenicians who traded luxurious goods throughout all the empires and kingdoms of the ancient Mediterranean - from Egypt and Mesopotamia to the Pillars of Hercules and the southern coasts of Britain. Phoenicia recreates the wonderful scents of purple-sailed ships billowing across the wine-dark sea with their holds full of scented woods, rare fruits, exotic plants, incense, white peacocks and gold.

Phoenicia is a fragrance to lead you into dreams – the scent of the King of Babylon or a Greek tragic heroine – the fragrance of lost splendours and today’s poignant memories.

The heart of Phoenicia is precious labdanum resin with an accord of dark raisins and honeyed sweet dates kissed by the sun of Africa. This is enfolded in clouds of oud, incense and cedar with a base of smoky birch wood and the unique bitter green tang of Javanese vetiver.

As a designer influenced by the environment it is natural that James Heeley should be fascinated by the world of scent. It was in France, through his design work and chance encounter with Annick Goutal that the young Englishman discovered the obscure and secret world of perfume and how fragrances are ‘designed’.
With time his beautifully constructed, natural, light scents evolved into more complex creations such as ‘Cardinal’, ‘Cuir Pleine Fleur’ and his more recent collection of ‘Extrait de Parfum’.
As an autodidact, his continually evolving work now contains a varied collection of unique and vibrant scents, each made according to the art of traditional French perfumery.
