I've been searching for a new fragrance for ages. After falling in love with Insolence by Guerlain I was struggling to find something that compared! I've always gone for fruity or floral fragrances that are feminine & subtle, my favourite notes being white musk & violet. I first smelt the Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum in Selfridges & went back to buy it the very next day after I couldnt stop smelling my wrist! It's a gorgeous, elegant, floral musky scent. It has top notes of pear nectar and sweet italian orange and base notes of caramel.
I do love official perfume descriptions (how on earth a perfume can have an attitude or be intelligent is beyond me...!) so just for a little laugh here is what they say about the fragrance:
‘Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum expresses an aura of strength and beauty. Glamorous in attitude, confident, intelligent and with a sense of fashion and fun, the fragrance is a modern Fruity Chypre with warm, rich, woody depths. It’s a fragrance inspired by modern women – strong, empowered, beautiful, seductive and alluring with a hidden and mysterious sense of confident sexuality'.
Perfume is such a personal thing so go test it for yourself & then buy it online elsewhere as it's guaranteed to be cheaper! The best price I can find is from feelunique.com
where it retails at £33.15 for the smallest 40ml bottle which is a reasonal price for Eau de Parfum. There are 3 sizes (40ml, 60ml and 100ml). If you love Flowerbomb by Vicktor & Rolf or Insolence by Guerlain then you'll love this little scented Jimmy Choo shaped treat!
