Guest Review By Shilpa

A woman should be two things: classy and fabulous.

          – Coco Chanel

And you know what exemplifies class and fabulousness like nothing else? A fine fragrance. Fragrances are known to evoke feelings and memories and are even capable of influencing our moods, and this particular one one we are going to talk about today, spells CLASS in bold and capital letters !

The Jimmy Choo EDT  was love at first sight! Even before I could get to the name of the fragrance, the stunningly feminine textured glass bottle had won me over. Thankfully, it did not turn out to be a case of “they made amazing packaging because the product is rubbish”.

What Jimmy Choo says: Launched in 2012, Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette is versatile, fresh and original with a dazzling aura of glittering femininity. Inspired by today’s most dynamic women, glamorous in attitude, confident, intelligent and with a sense of fashion and fun. With a beautiful alchemy of notes: crystalline rose with sexy orchid accents, sparkling fresh ginger and pear on a vibrant woody base. To reinforce the fresh essence, the fragrance seductively sparkles in beautifully crafted, subtly iridescent bottle. Distinctly feminine, the bottle has a jewel-like, vintage feel and that same magical ‘must-have’ quality as your favorite pair of Jimmy Choo heels.

My Experience

One whiff, and I was sold! It is a stunning fruity-floral concoction with a woody base. Initial impression is delicious! … juicy, upbeat and refreshing  (not in an in-your-face-citrus-punch kind of way) but a delicate, feminine, sensual one. The pear and ginger top notes pave way for beautiful florals, tiger orchid (though I have no idea what a tiger orchid smells like!) and tea rose. Divine. The base is supposed to be woody, but on my skin I continue to smell a scrumptious, slightly sweet bouquet of florals and fruits. Dry down is beautifully feminine, uplifting and seductive. Whenever I wear this, I keep reaching out to smell my wrists. Very-self-obsessed-but-cant-help-it.  This may not be a stand out, extreme fragrance – but its definitely addictive.

The lasting power is average at about 3-4 hours (this is an EDT), and even though the sillage is not very strong, do expect to be complimented on wearing this fragrance! This is one of those scents that effortlessly make the transition from day to night. Most appropriate for day-wear, but certainly not out of place at a night event.

That said, a fragrance is extremely personal preference affected by several factors such as body chemistry, age etc. “Try before you buy” is the mantra to follow and not just on a paper strip, a fragrance can smell completely different on your skin versus the paper.  The full Jimmy Choo fragrance range comprises of Eau de Parfum, shower gel, body lotion, cream, and roller ball.

What Works with Jimmy Choo EDT

  • Feminine, sophisticated, classy and uplifting fragrance
  • Scrumptious, seductive, fruity-floral-woody smell but not overpowering
  • Packaging is work-of-art

What Doesn’t

  • Can’t think of anything! Hmm…may be the longevity- 3 to 4 hours is slightly below average for this price range? But I’ll live with that given the awesome fragrance

Rating: A

Price: Approx. INR 3900 for 60 ml

Recommendation: The Jimmy Choo EDT not only comes in this beautiful crystal like packaging but smells like a gorgeous, delicious concoction of floral and fruity, with a sophisticated woody base. It could improve in longevity but is perfect otherwise
