Looking for a sans (Small Caps) with a small x-height

Hi all, I'm working on a logo and looking for a font with a really small x-height. I started off with Bliss, but – concerns just one Dutch word in SC – it's too dominant. Which is a pity, I like Bliss.
So it has to be a sans, otherwise I would have chosen Mrs Eaves Petit Caps, or something similar.

Anybody got any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Brieck.

Well, then, what about Mr Eaves?

Ghehehe, I didn't know there was a Mr. Eaves. I thought Mrs. Eaves just made John Baskerville's bed – and all.
Thanks, I'm gonna check it out right now.

Yep, and any time now we will be seeing a Little Johnny Eaves and a Little Janie Eaves, adding a slab and a script to the collection.

(Just kidding, in case anyone out there still takes me seriously.)

If you really like Bliss--I'm a fan as well--you could try just using a smaller point size on the small caps, or else going to the next heavier weight and shrinking that down. It might work.

Right. You can always nuance the weight with the stroke command.
