French haute parfumerie, Henry Jacques has arrived in Malaysia at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. With its rich history as the bespoke perfume brand to royalty and high society, Henry Jacques brings with it nearly half a century of excellence and creativity in serving the world’s greatest.
Made 100% in-house from the laboratories in Grasse, South of France, Henry Jacques perfumes breathe the very essence of their founder, Henry Jacques Cremona.
It was Cremona’s inexhaustible passion for perfume and an encounter with one of the last great noses of the old French Perfume tradition in 1970s which inspired him to set up his perfume house in 1975.
An avid traveller and with an obsession for rarity and perfection, Cremona travelled the world over to seek the best ingredients. The brand instinctively found its legitimacy in the universe of the discerning few and Cremona’s exquisite creations soon became treasures for connoisseurs.
Uninfluenced by fad and fashion, the Henry Jacques perfumes are created painstakingly by employing the time-honoured principles of craftsmanship. Like a musician, the perfumer at Parfums Henry Jacques carefully selects his palette of notes and blends them to compose a shimmering symphony of scent, and the perfumes are composed only of premium natural essences from all over the world.
Having formed close relationships with some of the world’s foremost crystal-glass makers and jewellers, each Henry Jacques perfume is contained in a breathtaking crystal flacon or customised jewel-toned flasks.
Parfums Henry Jacques recently unveiled the Les Classiques collection, a selection of outstanding creations available in-store. The Les Classiques collection – featuring 50 essences – is a selection of perfumes representative of the immense olfactive work that has been accomplished and is like an introduction to the Henry Jacques universe.
The purity of the essences, which is one of the foundations of the Henry Jacques’ identity, brings back an elegant gesture that has been forgotten for too long – applying perfume to the skin.
The nuances of the Les Classiques Collection are beautifully set off by the sleek lines of the specially designed crystal bottle.
Christophe Tollemer, the brand’s artistic director, has opted for minimalism in his artistic direction to let the deep, rich sparkle of the essences shine through, whilst contained by a design of rare distinction.
