The Jicky issue

If you remember, some time ago I asked for help with opening the golden Jicky casing. I finished my bottle and wanted to remove it from the gold in order to be able to get a new one.

Optimist that I am, I thought that would be easy.

A friend of mine went to Paris this week, and of course I asked her to check the Champs-Elysees Guerlain store in order to purchase a bottle of Jicky.

Turns out there is no Jicky to be had for my golden cage. šŸ˜”

I mean, I certainly hope that is what the sales assistant meant when she told my friend that the series is discontinued. Because the other possibility is unfathomable. Right?

So, does anyone know if it’s only the Jicky in gold casing that is being discontinued? I’m still being optimistic. šŸ˜‰

And if so, where could I possibly find a bottle before they are all gone?

    I think the SA did mean the change of packaging that is happening to many Guerlain perfumes. Greedy bastards they are, they are moving towards a more unified bottles away from special bottles for different perfumes. You can read more about it here https://www.monsieurguerlain.com/2017/06/simplified-guerlain.html?m=0. Iā€™m not a big fan of Guerlain (though I have several favorites), but I feel somewhat offended by that move.
    If you want to use your golden packaging, get a refill online from eBay or some discounter site: you still will be better off both price- and quality-wise.

    I agree with Undina that you should be able to get a refill bottle on ebay. Good luck!
