Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum
Advantages: pretty fragrance, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: could have had a prettier bottle
Perfume is an incredibly personal thing but I have found from my own experience that I almost always know that I like a perfume the moment I smell it. This is exactly how I feel about the Jimmy Choo perfume. I have only ever felt this way about 2 other perfumes - Calvin Klein's Euphoria and Miss Dior Cherie.
This perfume has notes of tiger orchard, pear nectar, sweet Italian orange, toffee and Indonesian patchouli - in my opinion it smells as delicious as it sounds!
When I first spray this on to my skin I get a lovely fresh slightly sweet whiff, but after some time the fragrance settled on my skin and had a warmer, deeper scent. Personally I have found that it lasts a very long time on my skin, although of course perfume and its staying power varies immensely with different people's skin.
The bottle itself I was not overly impressed with, it reminded me a little of flower bomb but not quite as well thought out. I don't think that it is a perfume that will stand out on shelves. Considering that they make amazing shoes I think that they could have been a lot more creative in the design of the bottle, or even just the lid as some bottles look amazing purely for that - e.g. Lola (Marc Jacobs) and Feerie (Van Cleef and Arpels).
Price wise I think that it is reasonably priced. On average a 50ml EDP will cost about £49 which compares well to other brands such as chanel, where 100ml would set you back £86.
Overall I am very impressed with this fragrance and think it will be one of my favourites for some time yet.
Summary: a wonderful fragrance
