Beauty and elegance
This comment and my evaluation of the fragrance refers to the eau de parfum. But since the EdP is not listed, I place the commi here under the Extraît.
The Henry Jacques brand, like probably some others, was not really known to me. Only through the sharings of widow Bolte this should change.
The net does not really give much information about the traditional house. For a very long time, they have exclusively produced tailor-made fragrances to customer order. That sounds elitist. It probably is. But if I'm completely honest, it would be a real dream come true to have my very own personal fragrance created. It was only little by little that I (hesitantly) opened up to the general public. But "broad public" is not really true, because the branches are rare and apparently very select. In Europe the fragrances are apparently only available at Harrod's. The habitus of a private and exclusive fragrance manufactory has at least not been discarded in the house of Henry Jacques. Harrod's calls prices from about 500€ to over 2.000€ for the fragrances. This is an announcement. Such a price policy protects of course also from the fact that the fragrances are spread. But before I would dig so deep into my pockets, a lot, a lot would have to happen. But I don't want to ride around on prices any longer. Everyone has to classify that individually for himself.
But now to the fragrance itself. Blue vanilla is a total work of art, which makes it almost impossible for me to break it down into its individual components.
The scent starts somehow "fresh", although I couldn't say which scents could be responsible for it. It is not a normal freshness, rather a bright and friendly impression with a touch of sweetness. The "aromatic notes" indicated in the pyramid could be it.
This is immediately followed by light and spicy, fine tobacco. This is easily recognizable and is also a constant over the entire fragrance process.
Dry, light woods lie under the tobacco. Very fine and subtle.
Very fine-smoky, spicy vanilla and ultra-fine, very light musk finally cover all components like a veil, enmeshing and cross-linking them.
In general, Blue Vanilla is a densely woven fragrance in which there are no real soloists. The scent seems more like an orchestra to me. You can recognize individual instruments here and there, but the big picture is what counts.
Blue Vanilla is pure and natural elegance and beauty for me, but at no time does it seem arrogant or smug. Nothing seems artificial here and nothing is displayed here. The fragrance radiates sovereignty, everything loud and ordinary is simply foreign to it. This also manifests itself in the projection, which is rather moderate and close to the body. Blue Vanilla enters into a symbiosis with the wearer, nestles up tightly and gives an incredible feeling of security. In a certain way, Blue Vanilla thus appears as shy of publicity as the house of Henry Jacques itself.
The quality standards of the company are clearly visible. There is nothing off the peg here. And certainly these fragrances would not fit into a 08/15 assortment of any perfumery. But they would fit into that of a few German big players (Alsterhaus / KaDeWe / Breuninger). Especially since trips to London are rather risky at the moment.
Maybe Henry Jacques will have mercy one day...
