    Question Pour Un Homme, Jicky or Mouchoir de Monsieur?

    All three of these scents are lavender/citrus/vanilla (by my nose, at least) and I would like impressions on the one you like best.

    Also state your preferred formulation, as Pour Un Homme is also available in the "intense" form, and Jicky has the parfum, EDT and EDP.

    Please tell why, too!

    I only smelled Jicky a long time ago, and haven't tried Mouchoir, but own and regularly use Pour un Homme de Caron. It's a masterpiece. I have no idea how this isn't more widely known or worn, although it is a much-heralded fragrance. Easily has crossover appeal for women. My only problem with it is that it's a little too light, at least on my skin. Also I find that with fewer spritzes the vanilla comes forward within fifteen minutes, and stays prominent. More spritzes, and the lavender lives longer, with a more gradual fade into the vanilla. It smells very pure, and the lavender is quite relaxing. If I had an 8 oz splash bottle of this stuff I'd be better off; right now I'm just using a 4.2 oz atomizer.

    If I had to go with any one of these, Pour un Homme would be it by biased default.

    Jicky or Mouchoir de Monsieur... Jicky is fabulous in any concentration, but of course to my mind the vintage formulas are fantastic. Ive only recently tried MdM recently and fell for it hook line and sinker... most definitely a male counterpart to Jicky! I have tried the modern EDT.

    The Caron is my favorite of the three. I think I have only tried the others in EDT concentration, if my memory is correct.

    I love all three but, for now, my Pour un Homme has come from the back of my collection and I am enjoying it again. I usu. cycle through my scents so I do not tire of one or the other.

    I love Pour Un Homme de Caron, period. Though I don't hate Jicky or MdM, I generally don't like civet-laden lavenders or citrus scents. Jicky and MdM are the best of that lot, but I'm not a big fan of either.

    I quite like Jicky in parfum, I just wish it wasn't so pricey, as I like to use it liberally. Unlike Shalimar parfum, where a dab is enough, Jicky parfum wears more like an EdT or, at most, an EdP on my skin.

    So, if a nice big spray bottle of Jicky parfum just happened to appear one day in my wardrobe, it would be my favorite of those listed. I like me some cat behind with my citrus.

    Thank you, shamu1. It looks like Pour un Homme is taking the lead.

    EDIT: And thank you, Suga, as we posted one minute apart! Yes, Jicky is pricey. I also like the civet-y note from Mouchoir and Jicky. (sigh) It is so hard to choose.

    Caron Un pour Homme is easier to wear IMO but the one which holds my attention better is Jicky. It has a greater depth. I can't say I prefer one over the other... it really depends on my mood. Still looking to sample Mouchoir de Monsieur though.

    Pour un Homme de Caron is the one that doesn't have any civet. That's basically what sets it apart from Jicky + Mouchoir.

    I dunno, simple lavender and vanilla doesn't conjure old people's homes to me - mothballs with a touch of Liz Taylor's White Diamonds - now that's grandma and grandpa for ya.

    I chose the rather elegant - Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur because the lavender & civet notes are not as pronounced as that in Jicky & I feel the Caron offering is a rather bland fragrance. The Civet note gives my choice, a certain 'je nais se quoi'

    Everyone probably knows that I'm voting for PuH de Caron. There's no citrus in it however, as mentioned in the OP. There is no civet in it either.
    karlovonamesti made a good observation that in higher doses, the lavender lasts longer. I have mentioned in the past also that PuH is more about ambergris to me than vanilla (on my skin) and the abergris becomes more animalic in warm weather.
    I do like Jicky and escpecially (even more) MdM. I find it more masculine and powdery than Jicky. But I'm not too comfortable wearing them what with the civet and the powdery nostalgic drydown. I noticed more civet being released in the Jicky EDT than the EDP or even the PDT. So my scond choice from the group would be MdM.

    All the notes are not in all three of these scents, and you noted that I did not add in my OP the pronounced civet found in both the Jicky and MdM. I find that these scents have a lavender/vanilla character in common.

    This group of responders seems to be divided in its choices, but Pour un Homme is still out in front! It's fortunate that PuH is the cheaper of the three...

    I respectfully disagree. CPUH has a small amount of civet, at least my nose detects some. Nothing like the sort that is in the Guerlains, but I definitely smell it. Am I alone in this?

    Mike, I agree that each person senses different notes. The official Caron site only shows lavender and vanilla.

    These are the PuH notes from the BN archives:

    Top Notes
    Lavender, Rosemary, Bergamot, Lemon.

    Middle Notes
    Clary Sage, Rose, Rosewood, Cedarwood .

    Base Notes
    Vanilla, Tonka, Musk, Moss.

    BTW, Renaissance Man, these notes include both bergamot AND lemon...citrus. Again, each nose is different.

    Though I do smell the vanilla in PUH, I don't find it to be strong (my wife thinks it's strong, though). I wouldn't like it if it was heavy in the vanilla. Just about all I smell is the lavender, which is what I want. One reason I'm so impressed with PUH is that the lavender, or the olfactory illusion of lavender, smell lasts for hours. If it's just an olfactory illusion, then PUH is a brilliant technical, as well as artistic, achievement.

    for the notes you mentioned I think pour un homme

    Wow, it really does come all down to olfactory perception! I don't look at PUH as a strong vanilla scent. However, I'm wearing Pour Un Homme this morning, and within seconds after spraying it on, my son came into my room and said, "Aw man, you smell like vanilla!!"

  31. #31

    Default Re: Pour Un Homme, Jicky or Mouchoir de Monsieur?

    I don't smell vanilla in PUH, just tonka, but I do smell civet, at least in the top notes. Not Jicky levels of civet, but civet.

    You are not alone. I noted the exact same thing (to my surprise) the last time I test CPUH, which was last week. I felt it was quite subtle and I like that.

    Default Re: Pour Un Homme, Jicky or Mouchoir de Monsieur?

    Although I can't smell an individual civet note, I would not be surprised at all if PUH had civet in it. To my nose, when civet is used sparingly it has the effect of "blunting" or flattening out the rough edges of sharp notes like lavender, citrus or wood without adding sweetness. I detect a similar effect in PUH. Maybe the civet in this serves that same purpose while simultaneously taking away some of the intense sweetness that the vanilla would otherwise have.

    it's hard to compare PuH with J and MdM. PuH is all sugary and playful and very caron--with none of the darker sensual qualities of the guerlain frags. I've worn all three of these for years: Wore PuH as a kid because it was in all the bathrooms of Air France flights--and it was my fragrance of choice for about 10 years. in my thirties, I graduated to jicky because it's so much more sophisticated. Now in my 40's I wear Jicky in the spring and summer and keep MdM for the darker cold months or when i'm feeling depressed--i would never go back to PuH: it's just too dainty and innocent for me--and the "Intense" parfum version smells like glue, and has a nauseating dry down. If you love PuH, you'll be more comfortable with Jicky Eau de Toilette--you won't find it lasts as long--but MdM might be a bit dark for you: it's nothing like PuH. Eschewing all of the above, you might deign to try Jo malone's Amber Lavender in very light doses, or Roger gallet's Lavande Royale, which is delightful.

    i own all 3 of these fragrances. For Jicky, i find the vintage perfume (in square glass stopper) simply out of this world - quite possibly my holy grail. I have the pdt and edt as well. very good in their own ways but somehow pale in comparison to the magic of the vintage version.

    MdM is very similar to Jicky Pdt, except it is heavier on the lavender. It lasts longer than the Jicky edt and similar in longevity to the pdt. wish i can get my hands on the vintage one in snail glass to compare...

    PuH - i only have the new version (i have a huge bottle), so not sure if there have been any changes to the formula. To me, it is largely a lavender scent, and definitely lacks the complexity/animalistic qualities that jicky and MdM have. Longevity is also rather weak, and i tend to spray several times all over my bed and clothes (since it is easily available for a cheap price)... something i can't do with my Jickies and MdMs....

    Doesn't Clary Sage read as urinous to some people and not to others? Perhaps this is the source of the yes/no civet controversy in PUH? I have a modest squirt of - I think circa 80's - EdP Jicky on my arm at the mo' and I've gotta say that my associations to it are moving it out of the set of 'stuff I'd wear' and into the set of 'stuff I'd like to smell on other people' (in my case these would probably be women-type people). I approached Jicky with all good gender-category-busting intentions but Jicky EdP has firmly resisted my wish to claim it as my own. So now I'm all itchy to get MdM on me!

    Pour un Homme...so far. It is worth noting that the lavender in Caron Impact EdP is absolutely fantastic, and more durable by half (endured coherently on my skin for just over half an hour in 75F weather last summer), but PuH is the one I own and wear.

    I found the civet in Jicky EdT and EdP too much when I sampled them last year. Mouchoir wore just a little too wan on me the one time I tried it.

    Perhaps it is time I revisited them all.

    I like all three. All of them are equally wonderful, IMO.

    The Pour Un Homme is less blended in its notes, an does not have the civet of Jicky or Mouchoir. The lavender and vanilla in Pour Un Homme seems to stand out as separate notes.

    Primrose, you do realize that you originally started this thread, right?

    Which version of Jicky do you prefer? And you are right about the separation of lavender and vanilla in PuH, at least at either end of its development, although I do quite enjoy that period of overlap in the middle.

    I have tested the scents over again and the Jicky grew on me.

    That is why I tend to test over a period and not make snap judgments. I like both the Jicky EDP and the EDT. I sometimes layer them or spray the EDT on clothes. MdM is still a favourite.

    Then you must try, if you can find it, Jicky Eau de Cologne (discontinued). It's fantastic. Highly recommend to someone like you who's acquired a taste for this fragrance. And well, of course, the parfum if you can afford it (right now, sitting at the very TOP of my To Buy list).

    Thank you for the tip, Mike.

    Older colognes are much more--somehow--better than newer EDTs and EDPs.

    As for the extrait of Jicky, I will have to try this. I am not much of a pure perfume person, only having a few.

    I own Jicky extrait and MdM EDT. Jicky extrait is superb but it doesn't last more than 4 hours on me... compared to the 24 hours I get from other Guerlain extraits (Vol de Nuit, Mitsouko and Shalimar). I sometimes wish I had bought the PDT (Parfum de Toilette = EDP) instead, it is much more affordable and I would probably get the same longevity out of it.

    My vote: Jicky. I've tried the Jicky extrait and, as noted above, it didn't last, and didn't wow me. I love the edt, though, and have been wearing it a lot lately. Would love to try MdM, but have never been able to find it. Pour Monsieur is my ongoing quandry. I know it's loved---and by those whose preferences I otherwise share---but I dislike it.

    Both are excellent but Jicky can become tedious and Pour un Homme is a bonbon. Mouchoir de Monsieur lacks the size of Jicky but it works a lot better for any kind of consistent wear.

    I own and like all three but found them relatively dull soon enough. Either way, Jicky and MdM smell great are great to have around for the purpose of re-aligning your perceptions. Sort of a toggle switch for the olfactory system.

    All of them are considerably more inspiring than most anything made today.

    Pour Un Homme gets my vote.

    I like Lavender and Vanilla, therefore ... no brainer.

    Three pillars but if I'd really have to choose I'd go for Jicky just for being available in different strength.
