Imagine this: a French haute parfumerie brand with international locations launching its only stand‑alone boutique in its home country nearly half a century after its founding in 1975. That’s Henry Jacques for you. The reason for this extreme delay in securing a location is simple: its first boutique in Paris had to be perfect. True enough, it is. The new boutique is not only located just off Champs‑Élysées, at the start of the iconic Avenue Montaigne, but also boasts a rare feature: its very own private garden.
The boutique opened its doors this May and Tatler Singapore was given a private tour of the exquisite space the following month. Henry Jacques’s chief executive Anne‑Lise Cremona played tour guide, sharing details about the design elements of the duplex boutique.
Upon entering the 400-square-metre space, one is greeted by a black monogrammed island topped by a glass display cabinet that proudly showcases some 70 iconic Henry Jacques perfumes.
