    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    W.A. Bouguereau, 1895

    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier-
    Iris Bleu Gris

    Awash in a sea of iris root and vetiver;
    I feel irresistible and dangerously human.
    A gentle undercurrent of violet feels like
    a fairy-tale ending to this classic drama.

    Iris root, wood and leather notes. Flowery.
    Top Note: Leafy green, lemon, bergamot;
    Middle Note: Iris absolute, vanilla, jasmine;
    Base Note: Moss, vetiver, musk.

    Jicky (parfum) by Guerlain - from a sample (thanks Mimi!)



    So, after about a year of thoroughly enjoying Mouchoir de Monsieur and becoming accustomed to it's civet / lavender I decided to revisit Jicky. The EdT of this is just too powdery for me to enjoy and the EdC I love, but it's so hard to source. So, I thought I'd test the parfum just for sh*ts and giggles. Many people have said that the parfum is too light...that it was hard to smell and that it had no longevity so I just assumed this was going to be the case with me.

    Wrong!

    This stuff is great! Just a few tiny sprays and I can clearly smell this - it's not powdery in the least and the lavender, herbs, civet and Guerlainade are rich, thick, multi-layered - I feel like I could chew this it's so substantial.

    Love!!!

    30 Roses - interesting, it sounds like you might have made Agent Provocateur! I'm going to have to try layering my non-vintage bottle of poorly reformulated Coriandre with some of my rose soliflores - maybe that will help to breathe new life into the once-so-stunning sparkly green wonder!

    I started today scentless (bar the Vetiver shampoo and scented body wash)... but soon went for some vintage Payot Pavlova... and "topped up" this afternoon with Turbulences... Another HOT HOT HOT day and quite busy at work.

    I think my next scent note binge will be rose, as I fell off the purchase moratorium wagon with a $15 off $60 or more and free shipping deal at Walgreens, picking up Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose and Estee Lauder Knowing for less than the retail of Knowing.

    (I am bad, but I hadn't bought any scent for a while, isn't that what they all say?)

    Thanks, but I do have a bottle of the vintage. I like the idea of layering the new stuff as a way to use it up, and I can't imagine that any rose fragrance I pair it with will do anything but help. I haven't worn it but once, and I'd rather find a way to enjoy it than scowl at it!
