    Default Your Favorite Henry Jacques Fragrances?

    So far from what I tried I absolutely love:

    HJ / Blue Vanille

    HJ / Monsieur Bouquet

    HJ / Roi Sans Equipage

    HJ / Emilio de HJ

    Hopefully I can find and try more, but I really am loving Henry Jacques, there is just something different about this fragrance house. The oils are very well made and some of the HJ fragrances remind me of some other niche fragrances and some remind me of a few niche fragrances I own in one fragrance. But... This is done better,Higher Quality very VERY deep and Refined. Just somthing magical. At least to me they are... I know we are all different and love different things. But I am in love, Hope I can find more. I highly recommend to anyone to try HJ. This house shot up to the top of my favorite fragrance house list , after trying Blue Vanille and even further discovering the others above. I am very impressed,very...
    What are your favorites from this house? :•}

    Sorry for the long post :•] and list of frags I love that may catch attention of Basenoters to point me in direction of certain HJ Parfums I may like :-) I appreciate any help,opinions recommendations where to start first. Thank You Hednic and you all in advance. Great warm community love the help too

    Are there any HJ Parfums that are Gourmand I’m a gourmand lover too,there are so many and my list is big to try them lol I don’t know where to start on the others. I have a wide range of notes I love and frags. I love incense frags like below and other listed at bottom. Vintage Tabarome. Which sadly I ran out of. Does Cuba have that Creed Vintage Tabarome vibe? If any of my favs below ring a bell for any close HJ Parfums please let me know. HJ Cuba is on the list hoping it smells like a baccy frag id like. And I like pine so I figured Soudain L’ Hiver is one in my sights. As is HJ100, Still & Swan. So many HJ’s my head is spinning but even if I have to painstaking try all I will. Since trying Blue Vanille, Roi San Equipage, Monsieur Bouquet and Emilio I am totally in LOVE with HJ. Just great fragrances.

    I’m quite confident you’ll love Soudain l’ Hiver. The freshest most beautiful pine type fragrance I’ve ever smelled! Also wondering about Cuba, I need to try it.

    I was gifted some by a friend. But other than that I can not find them/others anywhere, I contacted HJ and asked if they offer Parfum samples and they said no sorry but we don’, instead of samples they like the relationship of customers coming in in person so they can consult and show them around to introduce customers to the fragrances. I was shocked no samples for such good,great but Uber expensive pure Parfums. Wish I could go travel on a whim or else I’d be there faster than the flash lol. Waiting in a tent like when the new iPhones are realesed early to get in quick! Fragrance Heroin this stuff...just wonderful!

    No -- you are right

    They are very nice fragrances but there is no justification for the pricepoints imo

    HJ / Soudain L’Hiver ( Love Pine, Hinoki Cypress vibes )
    HJ / Frankincense ( hoping similar vibe to Eau L’ Trois )
    HJ • Myrrh ( Eau Lente vibe hoping )

    The rest below just sound appealing to me, and want to try/own.

    HJ • HJ 100
    HJ • No. 11 de Sacha
    HJ • No. 14 de HJ
    HJ • Nour /black musk oil
    HJ • Al Dar
    HJ • Et Pourtant
    HJ • Still
    HJ • Swan
    HJ • Mr. H
    HJ • No. 16
    HJ • No. 81
