    Default Jicky Longevity Question

    I bought a .25 oz parfum extrait on ebay. It smells like it is really is the parfum, but the longevity, on me, is just a couple of hours. I experienced this with the EdT, but I expected the extrait to last all day. Can anyone out there share their experiences with the different strengths longevity? Thanks.

    I can only comment on the EDT. I find the longevity to be excellent. It still goes strong at the end of a working day,on me. I'm quite lucky,in this regard, though. My bottle is a 1999 creation,maybe age is a factor?

    I have Edp. The longevity is very good.
    If I spray couple of sprays in the morning, I can smell a very prominent drydown in the evening


    One of the storongest drydowns (I can compare to Antaeus, Eau Noire)

    In contrast to some here, I find the EdT to be short-lived.
    I've sampled it at Neimans and find that it's hardly noticeable after an hour.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the extrait didn't last all day on me, but I would expect
    it to give a good six or eight hours.

    Alas, I prefer the smell of the EdT to the Parfum de Toilette, so I assume the
    extrait would be even less to my liking. It's the lavender accord in Jicky EdT
    that I like.

    I wonder then, is it me, is it Jicky, or did I get a parfum bottle filled with EdT? The EdP really has that distinct top note, often referred to as the "baby vomit" note, my alleged parfum does not have that top note, making me suspect that the seller filled a pafrum bottle with the EdT. The strings that "seal" the bottle are easily slipped off and on. Buying on e-bay is such a crap shoot!
