Jimmy Choo's EDP definitely makes it to my list of good gifts to give for Valentine's Day!Saturday, January 24, 2015
"The most popular brand of luxury shoes and fashion accessories, Jimmy Choo, launches its first fragrance, simply named Jimmy Choo.
Jimmy Choo fragrance, described as "feminine yet empowering, with a lot of sensuality to it", was developed in cooperation with Inter Parfums and the famous perfumer from IFF Olivier Polge. The seductive composition is a modern chypre fruity, with green top notes, tiger orchid, sweet toffee caramel and Indonesian patchouli.
The packaging and the textured glass bottle is designed by Mellon herself. She was inspired by Murano glass and devoted so much attention to the appearance, so that it would be desirable and appropriate for your nightstand."So I finally threw some cash around and bought myself a big 100ml bottle of this beauty after smelling it originally in 2011 when it was first launched in Manila. I bought this bottle a few months before getting pregnant but it's only now I got to post a review of it! I have been using it constantly, and not only in the evening! Sometimes I use it during the day when I have events to attend.
My first impression? It was so strong, definitely. For that reason and that reason alone I was somewhat wary of this fragrance, but there really was something about this perfume that kept haunting me. Whenever I passed by the Rustan's cosmetics department, my eyes would be drawn to this perfume. It was one of those situations were you want to pull away from something, and yet simultaneously there is that something that is drawing you in.

Still looking for a gift for HER for Valentine's Day? Do check out more about this fragrance after the break!
Meanwhile, 3 years later, after occasionally having the perfume guy spray it on my wrists in Rustan's now and again, I finally drank the cool-aid and bought this scent for myself and I appreciate it now more than ever.

It is a spicy fragrance but the sillage is not that strong, it only radiates within intimate proximity which is the best kind of sillage for these spicy warm perfumes. I do not really like fragrances that have a long distance sillage, I want people to only smell it when they come talk to me and peak a curiosity. You know, as the scent intrigues and people want to lean in and become more intimate just to smell it. Yes, it is a very romantic fragrance. My hubby loves smelling this on me. (Kilig)
Jimmy Choo EDP is available in all leading department stores in the Philippines: 100ml for PhP 6,400, 60ml for PhP 4,900, and 40ml for PhP 3,000.
