Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum Review
Back in July for my birthday, I received a bottle of the Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum as a present. The fragrance is the first of its kind from popular luxurious shoe and fashion brand Jimmy Choo. It is simply named Jimmy Choo. The fragrance was developed in cooperation with Inter Parfums and famous perfumer Olivier Polge. Not heard of Olivier Polge? He is a french born perfumer who joined Chanel Perfumes in 2013. He has helped to create scents with big perfumes houses such as Viktor and Rolf, Yves Saint Laurent, Thierry Mugler, Paco Rabanne, Lancome, Dolce and Gabbana and many others. I would, however, like to note that the Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum isn’t exactly a new scent as it was released back in February 2011 however, it is a new scent for me.
The Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum is described as a feminine fragrance that has top notes of mandarin orange, pear and green notes. Mid notes of orchid and base notes of toffee and patchouli. For me, I find the toffee note is most prominent and detectable in the scent. However, I also feel like the patchouli comes through really well too. The one thing I would like to point out is that it isn’t a sickly sweet scent like it sounds. Instead, it is quite elegant and has a little sweetness to it. But it is nothing like some other fragrances I’ve tried.
A long-lasting fragrance
In terms of the wear of the scent, I find it has long-lasting power and stays detectable throughout the day. The silage is also pretty good as the Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum is able to be detected from around two to three feet away. Is this a scent I wear on a day-to-day basis? I’ll be honest, it isn’t. This is a parfum that I tend to wear on an evening. It is a scent that you can pull off all year round. However, I just feel that it really suits this time of year.
Would I recommend this fragrance? I think if you like scents such as Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb, Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy, Chanel Chance, Dolce and Gabbana The One or even Calvin Klein Euphoria then you should definitely check this out as it is in the same sort of ballpark as the scents mentioned above. It even comes in a beautiful textured glass bottle, designed by Tamara Mellon. Who is also one of the faces of the campaign shoot for the scent.
All in all, I’ve got to say, I am a fan of the Jimmy Choo Original Eau De Parfum and would definitely repurchase in the future when my current bottle runs out. At £38.50 for 40ml, £52.00 for 60ml and £72.00 for 100ml it is one of the more high-end fragrances however, it would be the ideal gift for a loved one who is in need of a new evening fragrance. Alternatively, if you’re after this fragrance for yourself, I highly recommend dropping some hints to Santa Claus or keeping your eyes peeled for a great offer, deal or discount code.
