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!

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.

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.

I haven't checked out other suppliers of this perfume. But so far, the department store and Sephora options are really expensive. However, I have samples of Jimmy Choo EDT. The scent is super sexy! And it is on my wishlist for the coming new year.
I didn't like the EDP as much.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
This is my current favourite scent and often get many compliments whenever I wear this. It's more suited for night-time, but if you're like me, I don't follow those rules and would easily wear this during the day as well!
Smells heavenly of a creamy caramel/toffee with hints of patchouli and sweet floral notes. This has decent staying power as I could still pick out the scent on me the following day. If you're a fan of 'Flowerbomb' by Viktor & Rolf or 'Miss Dior Cherie' by Dior, I would recommend checking this out.

Perfumes usually smell really sharp on me - pretty much everything smells like old lady perfume on my skin. But I've found that I can really wear sweeter-smelling perfumes.
I wore VR's Flower Bomb for quite a while, then I smelled Jimmy Choo in a duty free store and had to have it. It smells quite similar to Flower Bomb but a) it's less expensive and b) it's cheaper.
The only downside (and reason it lost one lippy) is that the smell payoff isn't as great as other perfumes, so you have to spray a bit more on. That goes for the lotion too, I find the smell doesn't last long. I also got a lot more compliments wearing FB than I do wearing this one, but I do still get told that I smell good.
It's just a smell that makes me really happy and I feel like it suits me.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! One of the most beautiful fragrances ever. Expensive but long lasting. Whenever I wear this I always get asked what I'm wearing.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I love love love this perfume! I do not agree that it smells like lots of other fragrances out there, I think it is a very unique and also sophisticated smell. On me it is not as long lasting but I like reapplying it in the evening if I am going out anyway. Some people compare it to Flowerbomb and I owned this one too... There is something quite similar about them but Flowerbomb is a lot stronger and becomes nice only after few hours, before that it gives me a headache so I hated it... In general I love it and will be buying again when I run out.

Review for the EDT.
Love it and wear it daily. It is long-lasting and stays fresh on my skin.
Will continue to buy as I love smelling like this every day. :D

This is a winter scent. I got a sample at sephora last year, and is not for me, is too strong, too powdery, too much patchouli and musk, very smokey for my taste. So I did not buy it. Now, we're in the middle of the summer, where I live it gets up to 40°C, and someone in the office is wearing this perfume. Oh God, I can't describe how strong it smells when you get close to her, and I don't even want to start on how it smells after lunch, when we have to go outside to eat or run errands. After work, we go to the same school, and I give her a ride, oh god, I get to school with a headache. I don't want to be straight forward to her, because she is very nice, and besides, we are free to use whatever we want. So, I'm taking the matter to this review site, just in case any girl comes here looking for ratings and reviews about this scent, know that is a winter scent that I would only use at night, or with a very lighthand.

I'm at the point where nothing is really smelling unique anymore; everything that I've smelled recently reminds me of something else. This Jimmy Choo fragrance, although is beautiful, actually smells a lot like CK Euphoria... JC is just a lighter version of it, a tad bit more powdery, and the lasting power is not very good compared to Euphoria. I'm not really sure where everyone is getting the Flowerbomb comparsion (the bottles look the same, the scent..not so sure). So, bottom line, if you have smelled Euphoria, you've smelled this...sorry Jimmy Choo, it's a lovely fragrance, but not too unique.

Since perfume is very personal, for me, Jimmy Choo perfume did not work on my skin. I did not purchase the product, but got a sample of it from Sephora. I'm so glad that I did. I am not sure how anyone can wear this in a closed in area. Another poster said that "someone wears this in her office"?? How rude! I worked in a closed space for a couple of weeks with a woman who wore Estee Lauder's Youth Dew. UGH!! This is a screaming concoction of fruity florals. It is a little spicy too. For me it was cloying and overly sweet. You would have to spray it on from arms length to apply it. If any closer to your body it would be over applying it. I have been collecting perfumes and perfume samples for awhile now, and have noticed a similarity in many of them. They smell so alike! So very "in your face"! I guess if you want to be noticed, and can't afford Jimmy Choo shoes get the perfume. It is pricey, but much less than the shoes. I would suggest trying a sample first.

Other than the bottle design, I don't quite understand the comparison to Flowerbomb. I have both in the EDPs, and while the notes are quite similar and all... maybe it's just my skin, but I definately find them different enough to own both.
JC - on me - really lacks the gourmand & powder-y notes that Flowerbomb has on my skin. JC almost seems more like the younger, sweeter sister of Flowerbomb - quieter, more day and warm-weather friendly (though it is strong!) and again, lacking the gourmand/powder feel FB has. JC starts out as a clear floral on me, but dries down to a musk - though I can still detect the freesia and slight pear note. Flowerbomb, on the hand is very bombastic - a very strong floral that dries down to a patchouli, sweet vanilla. I don't detect any vanilla in the base, top or middle notes on me with the JC - though it must be there.
Both are beautiful, and both bottles are VERY similar - retro and feminine. However, Flowerbomb lasts an entire night and then some on me; the top and middle stretches more whereas the JC is much more flash in the pan and the lasting power is maybe 4-6 hours tops - still very nice, but not nearly as long as Flowerbomb.
I do love both, but as gorgeous as the JC is, it doesn't make me feel sexy and assertive the way Flowerbomb does (and FB nets me a heck of a lot more compliments from The Boy versus the JC.) I tend to reserve the JC with a VERY light hand, for work and the Spring and Summer; while the FB is much more nighttime friendly. The JC, while not HG, is definately one I'm keeping in my arsenal. I would re-buy and recommend, but don't expect it to be a dupe to Flowerbomb, IMHO.
