For over 40 years, Henry Jacques has surprised and delighted perfume lovers with olfactory experiences that transcend reality, combining savoir-faire and rarefied ingredients with a no-compromise philosophy. Pushing the boundaries of French Haute Parfumerie with feats of creativity and innovation, the Maison breathes life into the ancient art of solid perfume with a new accessory: Clic-Clac.
A sophisticated and contemporary device that incorporates an element of surprise, the revolutionary Clic-Clac was invented as a solution to house Henry Jacques’ extensive collection of solid perfumes. The charming object is available in precious avant-garde materials such as titanium, carbon, and gold. Clic-Clac accommodates all 50 Les Classiques scents in the form of interchangeable solid perfume capsules so you can carry your fragrance of choice with you in style.
“The creation of this object quickly transported us and overwhelmed us, surpassing all our expectations. Addictive for us, and fascinating for others, the Clic-Clac responds to the need of an era and a generation – a powerful response to something clearly lacking today,” says Anne-Lise Cremona, CEO of Henry Jacques.
The commercial introduction of Les Classiques is a refined curation of the Maison’s immense repertoire of olfactory work. The balm-like range of solid perfumes completes the Henry Jacques trilogy alongside the Maison’s legendary essences and mists. The composition forms by combining wax with fragrant oil blends that harden, warming up to the touch of a fingertip to transfer to the skin. While reviving the gesture of applying solid perfume, Henry Jacques encountered two challenges. The first came in managing to maintain the integrity of the original fragrances from its 50 Les Classiques. The second was dreaming up an accessory that is a fascinating everyday object and the perfect lucky charm.
To accomplish this feat, Henry Jacques turned to Swiss watchmaking expertise to create the perfect conduit that showcases technical know-how within the smallest and most precious of solid perfume accessories. Over four years in the making, Clic-Clac’s opening mechanism flows fluidly, offering precision for life on par with an heirloom timepiece. Clic-Clac gives its owner an elegant air of poise and nonchalance. It is a symbol of distinction and refinement.
This sublime object of mystery is destined to take on the aura of its owner in time, with an incomparable patina that defines its unique identity. A talisman that holds intimate memories and emotions to gift to the next generation, Clic-Clac remains a treasure even when memories fade.
Clic-Clac is now available at the Henry Jacques boutique in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, awaiting the moment to become a part of your loved one’s heritage and story.
