Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum
Advantages: unusual fragance from a designer name
Disadvantages: slightly heavy fragrance for daytime wear
Jimmy Choo is more commonly known for expensive and luxurious footwear and not being a millionaire i've never owned a pair :( but when i spotted this perfume by such a fab designer I was desperate to finally be the owner of a Jimmy Choo product, even if it wasn't for my feet ! I also decided that having designed so many stylish and expensive shoes this perfume must ooze sophistication and I expected something really special.
I first tried this fragance as a tester at my local Boots store. At first I couldn't decide what it reminded me of. It had an overwhelming fruity scent but with a heavier warmer aroma to it. At £42 a bottle (and a family to feed) I didn't buy it straight away and went in a few days later for a second test with the aroma. I them decided I definately liked it and began the hint dropping to my husband.
On my birthday three weeks later I was delighted when sure enough I became the proud owner of a bottle of Jimmy Choo perfume! After opening the box I was very pleased to find that the bottle is very sylish and glam, designed to look luxurious and feminine. The pink glass is cut so it sparkles and the contrasting blach cap finishes the look with elegance.
After using this perfume at home I began to notice the different depths to the aroma. It has a predominently fruity feel to it with strong warmer undertones of vanilla and toffee. This appeals to me as it is not too 'floral' but I think that some people who prefer a lighter fragrance may find this a bit overpowerful. This fragrance is definately strong and only a few squirts are needed to be noticable. I would recommend this perfume as an evening or special occasion perfume. It's not something I would wear generally every day.
Another big positive for me is that the perfume seems to linger for hours on the skin without fading. I find that with many perfumes the aroma wears off far too quickly. This scent smells lovely all evening without having to reapply some more. This of course means I use a lot less of this than my usual perfume which makes the 40ml bottle last a lot longer.
I have had many compliments about the smell of this perfume since I started wearing it and I am very proud when I tell people it was made by Jimmy Choo.
I would recommend this perfume to anyone looking for something elegant but slightly different for a special occasion and for £40 a bottle it is well worth the price.
Summary: a designer scent without the designer price tag
