    Default Calling anybody with Henry Jacques experience

    I’ve recently been guided towards Henry Jacques offerings by a couple people here that really know their stuff. The thing is, it would be hard to find samples of enough of them (although some in a split here) so I’d like to limit my search with some proper research. From suggestions so far, I have my eye on Roi Sans Equipage and M. Bouquet, which seem promising.

    So for all who have tried, I’d love to know your thoughts and details on specific fragrances!

    Thanks so much for posting these reviews! I thoroughly enjoyed them, especially the Roi Sans one. Sounds as if RSE has many layers to it, which excites me very much!

    If you can get to Harrod’s in London, the 6th floor Fragrance ‘Wonderland’ has a H.J. Boutique. Their website may be helpful for sampling? Pricy, but you get the very best.

    Would love to get to Harrod’s, but that won’t be happening anytime soon, so I’ve got to go at this from afar. There website seemed a bit confusing to navigate for me, and didn’t see sampling options, but I’ll go back and give it another browse.

    Thanks

    I had the same issues with their web site; no sampling offers. Maybe you could consider contacting them directly for samples? Good luck with your quest.

    I can make samples of both of them if needed as I own the attars. They also released some new spray bottles in 20 scents as well via harrods website

    Do you happen to remember the size of those spray bottles?

    Old style no longer in stock were 100ml I believe. The new spray/decanter bottle are 75ml. They will be available for world wide shipping from harrods website in a few weeks from what I’ve been told by Henry Jacques directly. 20 scents with 3 being totally new.

    Fantastic house.

    The only sampling available is in store really. They will happily post out some blotters with the scents of your choice. It's not as good as trying them on skin but it's the only way outside of visiting the boutiques.

    It's all very hush hush.

    I have Rose Oudh and love it. This is my first experience and it is very pleasant. Kind of not an Arabic take, but a French take on Arabic perfumery.

    Definitely very French in style!

    I've only ever seen those wee dinky bottles of 'pure parfum' that retail at over £500

    The ones I tested were very nice though

    Of the 4 I’ve tried now......

    1. Roi Sans Equipage
    2. Soudain l’ Hiver
    3. D’ Igor
    4. Monsieur Bouquet

    The first two I feel are FB worthy for me, but with the extremely high prices, I’m just hoping to be able to get one! The Roi Sans is probably the most beautiful classic old school masculine smell that I know of. It’s got a Viking type vibe with the beauty of a Creed Jardin d amalfi like background. The gorgeous pine of l’ Hiver is about as pure of a scent I’ve ever smelled, yet not overwhelming or smelling like a candle....so good!
