Hippie Rose by James Heeley Perfume
Hippie Rose is a Chypre Floral fragrance for women and men. Hippie Rose was launched in 2011. The first time I wore Hippie Rose, I did not fall in love. I was expecting a Grateful Dead, tie-dye, flowers tied into my hair experience and I got rose-dirt.
THEN, I returned a second time with a different set of expectations. I came in with a more modern, urban, Seattle/Portland mind set and it matched perfectly. This is a beautifully crafted cyphre starting out uniquely with a rounded moss and green loamy earth, eventually turning into a smooth mix of rose, soft patchouli and drying down with tiny, eensy bit of sweetness. I agree that this can be worn easily by both men and women with a slight learning towards the guys. It will be equally luscious on both, though.
This is no Hippie from Haight Asbury, well maybe a little. Hippie Rose is gender fluid with a suede fringe handbag.
Yet again, this morning, I do not smell of marshmallows and honey. SCORE! Wearing this to work is a bold move, so I will wear it to my half-day of work before we celebrate the New Year.
