I walked into Sephora one day and smelled something heavenly. The girl working there mentioned a lady had just been there and went crazy over the Jimmy Choo EDT and sprayed it all over herself. I was immediately in love and did the exact same thing – bathed in it! This was early decemeber, so I still had time before Christmas and my boyfriend Jake bought it for me from FragranceNet (you just can’t beat their prices!).
Announced as “a dazzling aura of glittering femininity”
Perfumer Olivier Polge created Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette as a modern floral – fruity composition with deep woody base. Its opening bursts with vibrant freshness of ginger, pear and green accords. Exotic tiger orchid, which forms the heart of the original, is blended with tea rose to create a seductive floral aura. The base is woody, but unlike the debut it does not contain patchouli, it contains cedar and vibrant woods.
I had a hard time distinguishing the smells (must go back to my crappy nose) but the most noticeable notes for me are PEAR and ROSES, with a slight woodsy undernote.
I was at Sephora with my best friend when I found Jimmy Choo EDT, and she was actually surprised how much I loved it. I generally go for strong scents like Gucci Guilty Intense to name drop one in particular. And Jimmy Choo EDT is much more… innocent or pure. Compared to my usual sexy and strong scents. Jimmy Choo is light and delicate. Clean and refreshing.
Will I purchase a full size? DUH! Already bagged it for Christmas from my boyfriend. Hooray!
