I almost blind bought this, and I'm glad I got a sample. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful scent, but it just isn't for me. It is very classic and of course has the Jicky DNA, and smells a bit like Shalimar (which was to come later). A true gentleman's classic! This came out in 1904 and is considered one of the first masculine scents.

I've heard it described as a more civet-y Jicky, and there is certainly some truth to that. The civet is present a low level funkiness, but really mostly provides richness and warmth to the floral notes (lavender, rose, jasmine, neroli). There is some citrus that brightens the accord. As it dries down, the vanilla in the base makes it warm and cozy like many Guerlain fragrances. I find that …Read more

This started out with a blast and then quickly calmed down to a nice sent with obvious vanilla. I don't consider it overly animalic.

I really love this fragrance! I managed to get a bottle several years ago, and at the time it wasn't widely available. It wasn't even on Guerlain's website. I don't know if it is the same since it was re-introduced recently into Guerlain's mainstream of fragrances, especially considering all of the reformulations that have taken place recently.

I initially …

exclusive guerlain private stock. not bad, but you can get the almost indistiguishable jicky much more easily. warm clean & soft. it actually to me does smell like a clean mens handkercheif, which is how the name translates. i suspect this might have been a reference point for the new dior pour homme in creating softer almost more feminine mens fragrance, not note for note, but conceptually …Read more

The only Aromatic/Fougere as yet in my collection, I bought this one to learn from. Wrote that I would buy it again, but not sure, it depends on how my collection deepens with time...The opening citrus accord reminds me of both Diorella (and therefore Eau Sauvage) from Dior and Rose d'Homme from Les Parfums de Rosine. Definitely a refined, sophisticated fragrance, a pleasure to experience as …Read more

This smells very much like Jicky to me - although I didn't have any Jicky to hand to make a direct comparison.

Launched in 1904 and is now available again, although in the UK only at Harrods. I was curious to try this as it is supposed to be the rolls royce of mens' fragrance etc. On my skin I detected among other things anis in the opening notes - quite Guerlain-ish, but the drydown was odd. I could smell citrus notes, something dry and spicy, something pipe tabacco-ish, but a strange undertone (I …Read more
