Henry Jacques’ ode to the Middle EastA spotlight on the Haute Parfumerie’s OUD for Ramadan





Oud has been part of Middle Eastern culture for centuries, its rich and soothing aroma a rare delicacy, certainly a staple during Ramadan. In the lead up to the Holy month, French Haute Parfumerie Henry Jacques shines a spotlight on several of its Oud fragrances - an ode to the region, and a nod to its deep-rooted ties in the Arab world.



There is the elegant and sophisticated Gallia, exclusive to Qatar, and Oud Imperial, both created as pure Essences only available in both 15ml and 30ml flacons; Onction and Correspondance are offered in both Essence and Brumes (spray) versions. As with all Henry Jacques creations, these Ouds are handcrafted to adorn both men and women, enveloping their wearer in a blanket of grace and pure indulgence.





Gallia – QATAR EXCLUSIVE

Starting at QAR 7,560 (15ml)



Elegant and sophisticated Indian Agarwood, blended with Cedar wood and Patchouli, and wrapped with Saffron, spicy notes and honey. The animalic undertones are filtrated through a layer of sweetness and spices which add softness, yet remain very aromatic.

Oud Imperial
