Thunking Thursday!

It’s Thunking Thursday! This week, I thunked a decant of Guerlain’s Jicky eau de toilette which I’ve had for a couple of years. I got busy trying so many other things that I had sort of forgotten about it, then fell in love with it again over the holidays. The EDT is just delightful. It opens with several different citrus notes, which give it a sparkle that Jicky’s other formats don’t have, lovely as they are. The lavender note is light and refreshing, the vanilla is a mousse instead of a custard.

Jicky is considered the first “modern” perfume because of its innovative use of synthetic molecules at its creation in 1889. Guerlain perfumer Thierry Wasser has tweaked its formula over the years to make good use of today’s synthetics and accommodate IFRA standards. It is truly unisex, and I encourage you to try it if you haven’t!

What have you thunked so far in January 2019? I’m counting up readers’ “thunk points”, so feel free to brag in the comments!

  1. I love Guerlain! So glad you enjoyed your Jicky edt. You’ve inspired me to pull out my Guerlain vintage samples to play with this weekend.
    I thunked a sample of gorgeous Forte & Manle Amber Absolutely and am sure I am wishing for a FB!

    • Which are your favorites? It was easier to thunk the Jicky EDT because it was a smallish decant, not a full bottle. I think I will be thunk-challenged when it comes to bottles unless I already have a back up.

      • I’ve got a lot of Guerlains.I love them all. I think Samsara….Mitsouko…L’Heure Blure. Shalimar souffle are high up in my collection. The AA’s perfect for everyday wear.

  2. An excellent first thunk! The Jicky EDT really is sparkling and aromatic, which makes it stand out from the other Jicky formulations.

    I still haven’t thunked any perfumes yet in 2019!

    • Maybe you will have thunked one by next Thursday! This weekly post is an attempt by me to remind myself to use what I have, but it’s fun too, and I love reading what others are doing.
      You’re right about how aromatic the Jicky EDT is; that’s one reason why I’m loving it. I find I consistently enjoy scents with evident notes of aromatics, herbs, green notes. I think that’s the gardener in me!
