    Re: Guerlain Jicky - recent purchase

    Jicky can easily be worn by men and women alike. I am always curious what vintage Guerlain's smell like (so far I have been very very impressed) and I would love to sample vintage Jicky pure parfum....
  5. Re: CURIOUS - Look at my wardrobe....Which 3-4 bottles would you get rid of if YOU were ME ?

    I wouldn't get rid of any of them. Just revisit after a break from them and you might be surprised which ones you actually want to get rid of.

    The key is to spray very very lightly. One spray from 1 feet away. Great scent. It smells a bit like warm skin after being in the sun for too long with some spices added of course.
