    Default Jicky and Musc Ravageur

    I rarely see comparisons between the two. I think they are similar (but different, if you know what I mean).
    Anyone else agree?

    Musc Ravageur is pretty unique IMO.

    I get almost no resemblance. Jicky is citrus-lavender-vanilla-civet while MR is cinnamon-vanilla-musk-musk-musk

    ...and a lot of lavender, surely! In fact, more lavender than musk, at least to my nose...

    I see where you might smell some resemblances. The opening of MR has a lot of lavender and dries down to a dirty musk that is a mix of civet, castoreum and vanilla, among other musks.

    I don't personally think they are that similar, but they share the same idea, of being soft and comfy on the outside but dirty on the inside.

    I agree with aventurier that there are some distant similarities, they both contain some combo of musk, vanilla, and citrus. But one is a pretend dirty that becomes spicy woody later, the other is truly dirtyish. As hedonist correctly noted, a true companion to MR is instead the defunct Helmut Lang edp; the also defunct Ungaro II is instead a modern take on Jicky.

    Not to be too base, but they're as different as pee and poop, if you get my meaning.

    Despite its pee undertone, I do like Musc Ravageur.

    Can't anyone detect the huge amber note in MR?

    Please don't layer these two

    Besides the objective similarities that one can find between these two fragrances, what really makes me perceive them as totally different is their overall vibe. Jicky is an extremely old-school, sort of archetipal fragrance while Musc Ravageur is a clearly modern composition, loaded with synthetics. That said, Jicky is a pillar in my wardrobe while Musc Ravageur is more sort of a guilty pleasure for me.
