Jimmy Choo’s debut fragrance…so, how does it smell?
Luxury label Jimmy Choo is branching out- shoes, handbags, a collaboration with H&M and now a perfume. The fragrance, a ‘fruity fusion of green top notes, exotic tiger orchid and orange blossom, with a touch of sweet toffee,’ according to the brand, is both light and sweet.
Jimmy Choo boss Tamara Mellon said: “It was really the next natural step. I’d wanted to do frgrance from the begining of Jimmy Choo. I want to accessorize a woman completely and fragrance is something a woman wears every day -it goes on her skin.”
I like the fragrance and it’s great for spring/summer- light, quite fruity/blossomy and very sweet, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t like those sweeter smelling perfumes.
It’s not at all how I imagined it to smell though, I imagined it to be more musky and quite heavy- almost like a Jean-Paul Gautier…so I was quite suprised.
The bottle reminds me a bit of Viktor & Rolf’s Flower Bomb perfume, which I love. It’s thick, heavy set glass is reminiscent of an old perfume decanter and looks fabulous on the dresser.
You can buy Jimmy Choo online at The Pefume Shop.
In addition, luxury label Vera Wang is celebrating this month with its latest fragrance launch, Anniversary. The new limited edition perfume celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Vera Wang fashion house.
I haven’t tested the fragrance yet, but according to the brand it’s a ‘bright and lush floral scent, a bouquet of Sicilian bergamot, red apple leaves, mandarin oil with a fusion of white gardenia, rose absolute, orange flowers and touches of creamy orris, golden amber crystals and warm cedarwood.’ You can also buy it online at The Perfume Shop.
