World Heritage Fragrance? Fragrance World Heritage! (or: True beauty is imperishable!)
Who knows me a little, knows that I am very fond of the house Guerlain. If the scents of modern times don't always manage to inspire me, it's the old classics that fascinate me more and more.
At the beginning of my perfume days, I found many such fragrances simply old (fashionable) and not exactly appealing. But that has changed fundamentally. Lucky for me. The more intensively I have dealt with fragrances, the more unimagined worlds of fragrance opened up - especially with the classics. Probably just takes time to grow into. So the "Parfumo-Bildungsauftrag" was a success ;-))

A few days ago the inconspicuous sample of the Jicky Extrait fell into my hands by chance. The EdT and EdP I know and appreciate very much, in so far the extrait test was only a logical continuation of this series.

The Extrait starts directly with the lavender whip, which carries a few citric sprinklers with each turn. One must endure this prelude and/or I simply times. Probably this opening is also due to the year of origin.

The animal is also right there. At first anything but a purring kitten, rather a hissing big cat. But still well-bred. She knows how to behave and deal with her strength.

After this very fulminant start, the fragrance becomes visibly calmer and softer without becoming boring or even arbitrary.

Delicate rose and flowering jasmine are well complemented by the somewhat bitter iris root to avoid drifting into an all too common floridity.

The animal is still present and slowly enters purr mode.

The further the fragrance progresses towards the base (this fragrance deserves the term quite rightly), the more balsamic, softer and rounder it becomes No more thought of the scratchy lavender (at best still as a hunch), but now super soft guerlinade, soft unfortunately, fine spices and slightly resinous amber-colored amber. And under everything lies the now gently purring kitten.

Jicky - what a beauty and what a delight! It is almost unbelievable that this fragrance is so old and yet not old-fashioned. A timeless and ageless beauty that simply convinces. And I don't have to beat any capers for that. Jicky has an immense power without being loud. Jicky touches heart and soul, is comforting, demanding and enveloping at the same time. Jicky is pure seduction without being offensive. Jicky's... so much more and actually impossible to describe. A fragrance that must be experienced.

Jicky - a fragrance for women AND men who want to experience the balancing act between yesterday and today.

Thank you Guerlain!

Nice Masculine Fragrance
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 with the vanilla and lemon notes following closely alongside. I did not detect any wood or spices in the extrait, but I only tested it once.

Jicky is strongly reminiscent of the classic "barber shop" smell. Projection, sillage, and longevity on my skin were all outstanding. It is a high quality fragrance, but it was a bit too masculine for my taste, and it had too much of the barber-shop vibe. I am sorry it did not work for me given its obvious high quality, and its very good performance. Alas, if only all fragrances performed this well.....

Fragrance: 7/10

Projection: 10/10

Sillage: 10/10

Longevity: 10/10
