I am reviewing the edp. I have never smelt either the pure parfum, or the edt concentrations of Jicky.

Jicky is a fairly unisex fragrance with a citrus/lavender/vanilla heart. Many people have described it as a lighter, more citric version of Shalimar, and the story goes that Guerlain took Jicky and added a hefty dose of vanillin to come up with Shalimar.

That said, my main …

This review is for the vintage extrait/pure parfum.

Top Notes: Spices.

Heart Notes: Lemon, Lavender.

Base Notes: Woods, Vanilla.

This review is for the vintage extrait.

Jicky extrait is a quality unisex fragrance that definitely leans toward the masculine end of the spectrum in my opinion. The lavender note in the extrait is very strong …

This review is for Jicky EdP, a decant from Surrender to chance or APC. I get a citric opening that morphes almost immediately into an animalic dry down that melds easily into my skin. I prefer to dab, not spray. I am not familiar with Jicky in general, and when buying Guerlain I generally prefer vintage extrait.

This could easily be worn unisex (at least by women who like men's …

Review for the Eau de Parfum...

Reviewing something like Jicky isn't an easy task... but I'll try and give it a go.

Simply put, if you don't know much about fragrance, Jicky is basically the ancestor of practically every modern perfume we have today. Although it was not the first perfume to use synthetic notes (as opposed to those inspired by nature), it was …

This is for Jicky edp. I knew Jicky in edt and liked it though the staying power is very weak, so I thought the edp would be better... Well, no, or maybe a little better; I can barely smell it on my jacket after an hour. I must add here that I spray like 10 times ! At that rate my 50 ml bottle will be gone in no time. I'm quite disappointed because I love this very aromatic smell of dirty …Read more

I used to find Jicky alarmingly animalic with its dangerously vivid civet note prowling in the sunny lavender. Now, having become more familiar with it, I enjoy it but I can completely understand why some find it disgusting. The civet note is extremely challenging to modern noses and I would definitely recommend trying Jicky first before buying it no matter how much you love lavender …Read more

I think that this smells better on a paper test strip than it does on my skin, which doesn't happen for me often. On a paper test strip, Jicky has a dark, animalistic quality that I love (sort of like leather and dirty musk). On my skin, however, the citrus notes are loud and screeching for about a half hour, reminding me of really harsh cleaning fluid (I actually like the smell of lemon …Read more

This fragrance can come off as a bit masculine during the first few spritzes because of the strong lavender and other base notes. This is probably the strongest true lavender based perfume on the market. After the first hour, however, this does calm down and the other notes start to shine. The vanilla and amber creates a warm and creamy dry down. The jasmine, rosemary, and citruses also appear …Read more

So I finally got my hands on the ever popular Jicky and, sadly, it just wasn't for me. It was too masculine like an old man's aftershave or something. However, the dry down was nice and soft. Like vanilla but not so sweet. My husband hated it. I don't think I'll ever wear it again unless I want to repell my husband lol. I should add that it has pretty decent lasting power …Read more

For me it is lavender, powder, citrus, musk with some slight sweetening at dry-down. I have a few masculine leaning fragrances in my collection, so Jicky's slight musky edge is actually welcome. This isn't your usual bombshell fragrance, more like the sexiness that comes when a women is confident with or without the lipstick. I find myself reaching for Jicky at the end of the day, it …Read more
