Jickyesque to me.
I’ve sampled all the concentrations of Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles on here: edc, edt, pdt, and parfum. It’s well-known in fragrance circles that I’m not the skank-loving type, so it’s no surprise the edc version is what I’d purchase a boxed bottle of. I know this fragrance has undergone an earlier reformulation because I read about someone saying how she didn’t like the urine opening. I like it in this iteration because I’m rewarded with a Guerlain Jickyesque drydown that is absent of detectable lavender, though I think I saw it listed among the scent’s many notes, and lavender is a note I don’t like at all - whether it fits the profile of medicinal or flowery - unless we’re speaking of liquid hand soap for the bathroom. I can see myself wearing and enjoying the edc on occasion, and I absolutely love the fragrance packaging. Ahem. :I “Yes, I do care about the bottle and the box.”
