Jicky

Extract

The first modern perfume

Jicky is a magical fragrance that blends sparkling top notes with warm and delicate base notes. At the time of its creation, women may have found Jicky puzzling, but men adopted it immediately. Today, this fresh and vigorous fragrance is the delight of women and men alike.
Why the name Jicky? From his student days, Aimé Guerlain kept the enamoured memory of a young woman named Jicky to whom he paid a beautiful homage with one of his most wonderful olfactory creations.

The bottle was inspired by 19th-century pharmacy bottles. Streamlined and sober, almost masculine, it is crowned with a stopper that recalls a champagne cork, a clever nod to parties and the sparkling woman who wears the fragrance.

Oriental Fougère.
Contrasting, dynamic, surprising.

The spicy notes that blossom with the warmth of the oriental facet also play skillfully with the fresh and aromatic notes of lemon and lavender at its heart. Underneath this audacious structure, one detects woody and vanilla notes for greater vibration and character.

Jicky is the forerunner fragrance of "abstract perfumery" as opposed to "figurative perfumery". With its interplay of unique facets, it was the first in the perfume world to have such a trail and tenacity.
