A name that is synonymous with an unwavering pursuit of perfection, Henry Jacques is the epitome of unparalleled luxury. As you set foot into the Henry Jacques boutique at Marina Bay Sands, the very first in the world, it’s easy to think you’re entering a Parisian apartment on the Rive Gauche. From the main salon, which is decked out in solid oak and gold leaf, to the private sitting area nestled deep within the store, every part of its well-appointed design pays homage to Parisian apartments steeped in the grandeur of the past, packaged in a modern, contemporary style. While the lavish interiors are decorated with rows of exquisite bottles, unlike most perfume stores, you can hardly detect traces of perfumes in the air.
