The Jicky pure parfum was originally designed in 1889 as a men's fragrance. If you think it's too strong for you, however, I don't personally think the EdT is the way to go. Some people feel that Mouchoir de Monsieur was originally intended to be the EdT counterpart to Jicky. In fact, our resident Basenotes Guerlain speciaIist, Mr. Guerlain, says on his webpage about MdM: "Some argue that Mouchoir de Monsieur is basically a more straightforward version of Jicky, i.e. Jicky without the resinous base." I think the Jicky EdT is even less faithful to the original perfume than MdM.
