...of cool dewdrops and silken thought threads
With the image, which creates a perfume in our head, we let ourselves drift. Leave reality behind and change our view on how we classify the fragrance, which notes we notice the most, and in which situation it fits best. This is how I explain it to myself (apart from the fact that you can smell different things with different intensity), how the classifications and note highlighting sometimes come about here.

Heeley's L'Amandieré takes me to a possible day in the cool spring, when the rising sun shines through soft fog and lets the dew drops dry off on the radiant green. On a day on which the trees and shrubs have already fully developed their bright foliage, on which the blossom of the lime tree - whose aroma here is completely unsweet in the centre - but natural white is not yet the turn. Only in my imagination, it's already blooming. Distributes its fluffy-light fragrance with the rising fog.
I find the other flowering plants that complement the pyramid suitable. Hyacinth and rose can be identified as the earliest, as can a distinct green note, which smells for me like light green foliage and less like almonds. Overall, the fragrance remains clean and refreshing. He doesn't press with indollic notes, which I otherwise appreciate very much, but which would take away the floating nature of the whole thing here, which is certainly not least due to a well-inserted musk.

Besides the absolutely spring-like picture, I also see L'Armandieré as an excellent scent for the summer. Whenever you need a quiet, calm, withdrawn companion or simply a fragrance that relaxes. The one who conjures a beginning spring day into your house, because you just want to stay on the sofa and read.
A certain melancholy may not be denied to the fragrance, it is too cool for that, nevertheless it is able to lift the mood properly used...
Heeley's composition is unisex at all times - can really be worn by men without hesitation - and is restrained as far as projection is concerned, but remains perceptible to you for a long time!

Stumbled and bitten into the grass
In a small, fine perfumery in Berlin I was pushed into the grass.
The thrust was a pleasure, a bounce in the belly, a listening before the moment of the fall, before nature was very close. In an often monotonous landscape you like to stumble, that helps you to new perspectives. Everything that breaks the old, the transparent, astonishes and astonishes, causes movement, touch and friction, I perceive as a blessing, an impulse and a preliminary step to art.
L'Amandière has done all this, first it has torn me out of my lethargy and thrown me to the ground. Then it outraged me, excited me. Then I had to laugh, and finally I was very touched by what was lying on my arm.
The tripping and happy, free feeling of falling came from the round, stunning scent composition that bombards the opening of L'Amandière. The ball starts with a punch line, which is expected much later with most perfumes. An abundance of green, blooming nature that seems to jump out of a cool clearing behind an almond tree and frighten the lucky fragrant. So much juiciness without blurred outlines, with on the contrary downright uplifting clarity, I am surprised, excited, puzzled, slipped. The indignation came after the fall. There I was, smelling the causer a second time. It shot me in the head again and I couldn't believe what had changed so suddenly. It was as if I inhaled a plate-sized lake of cold-pressed, gold-green olive oil. Nothing else I could perceive in this second and the smoothness of this familiar, intense fragrance, if I had stood upright, would have made me feel gravity a second time. I was also talking about the absurdity of the expensive olive oil that was suddenly there. Then I understood the humour of my counterpart, whose greenish-gourman-like facet, cheering for the successful fright, slowly disappeared into the forest again and made room for a new unexpected visitor. He had surrounded me the whole time, but I hadn't smelled the meadow from all the blades of grass. Freshly crocheted, bleeding deep green, the heavenly smell of the grass poured itself into the moment and gave me (who not?!) a wonderfully aching nostalgia. In the background the almond and lime trees sweetened our mutual recognition, perfect harmony prevailed on the quiet meadow.

L'Amandière
Opens with crisp green notes layered over a base of musky rose and powdery almond. The opening (dewy/grassy) reminds me of La Tulipe by Byredo, whereas the heart (leafy/soapy) reminds me more of Green by Byredo. As the notes bloom on my skin the scent transitions from a fresh to a dry green, but it retains its subtle touch of almond-laced rose at the base (reminiscent of P.Generale's Tonkamande). The fragrance is truly a joy to wear; its only shortcoming is that it stays too close to the skin.

Bed Linen
I smell spring sheets. That Lily-of-the-valley type of spring (only it's not in the notes, so it's likely the hyacinth). L'Amandiere smells of bed linens that have been sprayed to smell of spring, when everyone is sick of winter and wishes spring would arrive already. It clears your nasal passages.

This is a polite lady who wears flats and twin sweater sets.
