This is my favorite scent of all times!Lasts all day!So different from others!
My partner bought this for me for our anniversary and he got me the EDT, it is definitely the best one compared to the EDP. I found the EDP is too musky and I always get a headaches from musky perfumes, but the EDT is amazing is so fresh and light and beautiful.
In New Zealand its on the expensive side for a perfume. He bought it from Farmers, which is like the most expensive place for ANYTHING. I think mine is a 65mL. And it was about $70 which is a lot for a small amount. I love this perfume and its definitely in my top favourites :) the packaging is so cute and even the box is pretty. I keep this one for special occasions as its so expensive just to wear to the supermarket haha. Its an awesome night time perfume or even a day time flash occasion perfume. I get compliments on it when I wear it and its worth the money to smell this good!
Kinda sharp but unique, girly and happy. Like it a lot.
I first smelled Jimmy Choo at Ulta. I didn't spray it on myself as I was already wearing perfume but tried it on a test strip. I didn't like it and never really thought about it again. While surfing online one night, I began reading reviews for this perfume and they were generally pretty positive. I figured I must have missed something so I went back to Ulta a few days later and sprayed JC on my arm. I still didn't like it and actually found it to be a bit obnoxious. Sort of in your face and annoying which is not a trait I want in a perfume. After walking around for about ten minutes, I could not stop smelling my arm because it smelled so good. I ended up going next door to Marshalls and buying a small bottle. While I'm still not crazy about the initial burst of scent JC gives off, the dry down is gorgeous!
I'm not good identifying notes and all that jazz so I'm generally terrible at describing why I like a perfume. JC has been described as having notes of mandarin, orange, pear, tiger orchid, Indonesian patchouli and toffee. As usual, I don't get ANY of that when I smell it. On me, JC smells a bit spicy and sweet which is probably a combination of the patchouli and toffee as this smells a bit candy-ish. I don't get floral or fruit with this which is probably why I like it. It reminds me of Gucci Guilty not because they smell similar but because it's a perfume that is generally strong and sexy. It's not going to knock someone over the head (unless you over do it) but it's not a meek little scent that someone needs to lean in close to smell. When I'm in the mood, I love scents like that.
The lasting power of JC is also pretty good. On me, this lasts about eight to ten hours. If you spray it on clothing, it seemingly lasts forever. I find the scent to be appropriate for all ages. I don't get super old lady or super young lady when I smell this which is great because I'm not exactly a spring chicken but I'm also not collecting social security.
The price is the only downside. Jimmy Choo is what is probably considered a luxury brand so that is reflected in the price. I got a 1.3 oz bottle for $40 which isn't exactly a steal but it's not the full retail price. As I have a ton of other perfumes that I rotate through based on my mood, I think the bottle will last me a while. If you're looking for a "strong" perfume, I would recommend this.
I live this and it's my favorite at the moment. I'm sure I will re-buy b/c it's great. Fresh, citrus/powdery smell like you just stepped out of the bath. Stays and lasts well. I bought the largest size at a tester price so got a great buy on it! Wonderful and I'm very picky about perfume but this hits the mark!
I've always avoided reviewing perfumes as I'm not that clued up on all the different notes ect. However, I wore Jimmy Choo on my wedding day and the amount of compliments I got from people is unbelievable. Both men and women kept saying how gorgeous I smelled, so there must be something appealing in this perfume! I love how long it lasts on me, I have it in EDP form and it lasts all day. My husband absolutely loves it, he says it smells like 'me'. One squirt makes me smile as it brings me back to our special day. Absolutely gorgeous, sophisticated, sexy smelling fragrance. If this smells like 'me' then I'm happy!!!!! X
This review is for the EDP. When I sniffed Jimmy Choo EDP for the first time I expected absolutely nothing. I surprised myself with a "Wow!" reaction. It's nothing at all like what I expected and so much better than I hoped for. On me Jimmy Choo is a chypre and a gourmand, which seems impossible. That's why I am certain that Jimmy Choo is the most multifaceted chameleon-like fragrance I've ever worn. Honestly, depending upon the weather, my body temperature, its mood...it can be perceived as many different fragrances. Even during one wear time it changes throughout the day. Fascinating! A warmer day tends to bring out chypre notes, and cooler days bring out the powdery light caramel notes. This fragrance is quite sensual and I love it. Olivier Polge rocks my world, yet again. I love Jimmy Choo's sculpted, elegant, heavy glass bottle as well. It's obvious why it's so often compared to Flowerbomb's bottle, but, like the fragrance, I like the Jimmy Choo one better.
Jimmy Choo EdP is one of those scents that you shouldn't decide if you love or not in the first five minutes, because the drydown is so different from the opening.
When first sprayed, it is an overload of juicy fruits, esp. pear--which some might really love at first sniff! I am not a fruit perfume person, but these top notes are growing on me, and this challenge keeps it interesting. The drydown is the best part, IMO--that creamy, toffee patchouli! The patchouli is right in the middle of the scale: It isn't the potting soil smell of raw patchouli, and it isn't the modern sterilized stuff which to my nose can be very sharp. Just perfect! I think it smells clean, womanly, and impossibly chic. The toffee gives it a smooth texture and some sweetness, but not tooth-achingly so. Gorgeous in the summer with a *light* hand, but in cooler weather you will need to touch up after several hours. The bottle is heavy two-toned glass, and feels special.
Nice perfume. Lasts a long time and smells very unique. I have the EDP
I tried this on a whim and I LOVE it!!
As a longtime fan of Angel, Chanel's Coco and Coco Mad, as well as a host of other scents that are usually termed as "strong", reviews stating this is pretty in-your-face didn't bother me.
Simplistic, lovely bottle - at the first spray this scent has some sweetness, white floral and mild green notes, which is lovely. Towards the middle, I get orchid, smoke, and iris, and the beginnings of toffee. The drydown is my favorite, patchouli, toffee, cream, and spice, with enough sweet and floral to balance it. This is a very spicy scent - not for the faint of heart.
I can see where people get the comparisons to Flowerbomb and Euphoria, but I do think this scent stands on its own. I wear Flowerbomb often and it is much sweeter and creamier than Jimmy Choo. I think in actuality it is more similar to Euphoria, which I also used to wear - specifically related to the orchid and green notes. Jimmy Choo is more complex and (to my nose) has more spice and patchouli.
This is a scent that will make or break you based on personal chemistry. With all those strong notes, when it doesn't work, it will probably be an epic stank.
Very sexy, mature, and sophisticated scent.
