    I've written this before, but I find the civet in Jicky EdT to be so muted as to be invisible, especially compared to Mouchoir or the EdP. To me the EdT is all sunshine and lavender and citrus and vanilla. Just a well-groomed Guerlinadey pleasantness all around. The EdP smelled like pee and crotchsweat and I couldn't wear it.

    I always thought Kouros smelled like the bathroom at Plato's Retreat at about 4 AM on a Saturday night, circa 1979. Vileness poorly hidden by industrial cleansers. I've really wanted to learn to smell that one differently, and I've tried several times. No dice.

    Yes, but are you secretly attractive to your kinky coworkers? THIS is the important question.
    I agree it is important, but the thing about secrets is that you don't know them. Feel free to investigate and let me know what you find out. I would appreciate your starting by telling me which of my co-workers are the kinky ones. That has all sorts of value.

    I agree for the most part, though I would say calling the Civet in Jicky EdT invisible is an overstatement. But it is dialed way down as compared to MdM (possibly the citrus opening in MdM also boosts your perception of the Civet; that wouldn't surprise me - it is almost like a breakaway where the Civet drafts behind the citrus leaving the peloton). Your descriptioon makes me think I would like the Jicky EdP better.

    I'm with you on the sunshine - this EdT smells like a clear blue sky. Maybe a bit of filth around the edges but not much more thus far. [​IMG]

    Today: Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain. It's mainly cedar, with spices that fill out the cedar experience. Really good for winter. Might use up my sample this year and actually buy a bottle.

    ^OOh, neat-o. I've been wanting to try some of her re-issues, especially the coveted CHAOS!

    For me, it's Guerlain L'instant d'un etÃ[​IMG] for me today. This is the version of L'instant that adds Lime to the top and cuts out some of the amber/patchouli base to make it easier for daywear and a little brighter.

    Has anyone tried the new "Six Scents" series

    http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/categ...=449&section=1


    Sounds interesting for those interested in fashion as well as fragrances. Sorry if this has been posted before.


    I haven't seen that before, looks interesting.
    I'd love to find them locally to try them out, No. 4 sounds different!
