Jimmy Choo has been highly influential in the ever changing world of style, high fashion and modern trends. The brand sets the bar luxuriously high when it comes to artistic shoes and lavish fabrics and the designer has channelled the same aura of glamour, charm and sexuality into delightful fragrances for men and women.
Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfume has potent central notes of fresh tiger orchid fused with exotic base notes of toffee that blend sensually with Indonesian patchouli. The combination of juicy fruit and warm, woodiness adds complexity to embody female empowerment, refined confidence and mysterious desire.
The fragrance is packaged in an exotic pink snakeskin box that is synonymous with Jimmy Choo’s deluxe expression of the brand’s desirability. The round amber bottle is adorned with delicate light reflecting facets influenced by antiques and beautiful Murano glass; much like the pieces I saw while strolling the rustic streets of Venice.
This perfume is very concentrated and although it fades beautifully one spritz is usually all it takes. Instead of applying it directly to skin I spray it in the air around me or on my clothing which helps dilute the scent and lighten the potency. The notes are very classic and the aroma reminds me of the rich fragrances my mother use to wear years ago combined with fresh new scents that are popular today. The harmonious blend of antique and modern flare creates unique sophistication and elegance.
During the day I opt for lighter, fresher scents so this may be a bit too heavy for sunny summer days but for evenings out this fragrance is powerful and enthralling! The 60 ml bottle retails for $75.00 and 100 ml is $88.00.
Although I usually feature a wide array of scents for women since we love our perfumes let’s not forget our handsome counterparts! Jimmy Choo for Man embodies sensuality, rock n roll and expressions of confidence, masculinity and a rebellious sense of humour. The bottle resembles a sleek flask with minimal detailing and sharp clean lines.
Ladies, if you want your man to smell irresistible, powerful and swoon-worthy this cologne has it all! To me it epitomizes high, fashion, confidence and mature vivaciousness with an alluring muskiness. Jimmy Choo Man is fresh and crisp with a calming infusion of lavender and the subtle sweetness of mandarin essence, honeydew melon pineapple leaf and geranium. The base notes blend wonderfully with warm amber aromas and alluring patchouli.
My husband loves this strong, bold fragrance for both special occasion and everyday wear, the 50 ml bottle retails for $68.00 and 100 ml is $88.00.
Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfume makes a fantastic Mother's day gift and both fragrances can be purchased at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale and Nordstrom.
