    Sampled many from the house when I was last in London. Don't recall if these were among them. Are they new from the house?

    I got to sample my way through their collection with their company rep at Harrods. Henry Jacques is the best perfume I've tried! They are expensive - but in the same price range if not a bit higher than many of the finest oud oils from Ensar or Agar Aura. Wish they had a U.S. showroom to visit more often! I understand the perfumer is from San Francisco - is that correct?

    I am not sure of the Perfumer's origin.
    So you sampled through their collection? At Harrod's?

    Interesting how that works - for me as well.

    Oh yes!!

    I find it difficult when answering my top 5. Bel Ami and Bugatti are always in the top 5 subjectively. Objectively I love everything in my Wardrobe, samples and all. If I don't love it I pass it on.
    Best is a difficult one. I can certainly say that Henry Jacques perfumes rate high on my the list of "Memorable" samplings. As a group they impress with High Quality of Ingredients, Classical Structure and Conservative styling. Pregoni's work in comparison impresses with the High Quality of Ingredients, a base in Classical Structure and an innovative Avant Garde Styling, so it is memorable to me. Fazzolari impresses with High Quality of Ingredients, an eye to Classical Structure and Creative Styling, Memorable to me.

    Both are competent and Quality Feminines.
    White Musk predominates though and has them of little interest to my palate.

    Femme:
    This one is one of the best modern perfumes I have smelled. Really good. I wish I could wear it on skin and see the development. A classical floral with fruits up top (kinda like what art le guerre did). Very well blended and the florals are deep and rich.
    Beauty needs no morality or righteousness.

    Thank you so much Mr Camel

    How did I miss this house. Probably quizzing people on how many bottles of whatever was left and how often they get new stock.

    Some here I have to try which will of course lead to the inevitable I have to have it.

    If you are wearing any of these you must be smelling delicious as ever

    Easy to miss, rather a Cubby hole, I've been told.
