In the US I recommend getting Jimmy Choo perfumes from Ulta. In the UK they are available at LOOKFANTASTIC with 20% off when you use code LFTFSOKI.
Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum
My personal favourite perfume, Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum is a perfect feminine fragrance.
The main note here is a fresh and fruity pear which is made warm by a toffee undertone. This is all accompanied by a patchouli base which creates the body of the perfume.
The lasting power I’d say is medium, and is the only things I don’t like about the fragrance. However, because it has been out for so long you can usually find this at around half price, so I don’t feel guilty spraying lots!
Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette
Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette is much lighter than the Eau de Parfum. It keeps the fruity pear note from the origional but the toffee and patchouli are gone. Instead there is a pretty Taif rose and an orchid note.
I love Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette as a layering perfume; when I want to add a pear feeling to my scent I’ll add this to the mix.
I also think it’s lovely for humid weather because the pear is so refreshing.
Jimmy Choo Flash
Jimmy Choo Flash is a floral fragrance with a very different feel to the original Jimmy Choo perfume.
The main notes are a Tuberose, Jasmine and Lily; making this a strong white floral scent. There is also a fair amount of pink pepper in here which adds an edge to the florals.
There is a woody heliotrope in the base which I personally find adds a slightly spicy feel to the perfume.
Jimmy Choo Flash can usually be found at very low prices. With it’s sparkly packaging and cool bottle design I think it’s a great bargain for a gift.
Jimmy Choo Illicit
Jimmy Choo Illicit, as the warm brown branding indicates, is a honey fragrance.
There is a sweet amber honey which runs through the scent, alongside caramel and a woody vanilla.
At first there is a sharp ginger and bitter orange scent but these fade to reveal a hint of jasmine and all those warm sweet undertones.
Jimmy Choo Illicit is probably the most mysterious and sexy of the Jimmy Choo perfumes.
Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower
Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower is probably the lightest of all the Jimmy Choo perfumes.
It’s completely different to the first Illicit fragrance. There is a light grapefruit blossom note which is accompanied by fresh orange and and apricot.
There are hints of other flowers in a light floral bouquet but this really is a very light delicate scent.
I’d recommend this for a young person as a ‘first fragrance’.
Jimmy Choo Blossom
Jimmy Choo Blossom is another gorgeous bottle from Jimmy Choo – I love the hot pink!
As the pink branding indicates this is a very ‘pink’ fragrance. Initially you get a sweet zesty raspberry and red berry vibe. This is followed by one of my favourite perfume notes; sweat pea.
This is an Eau de Parfum so it does have some lasting power. It’s fun, sweet and carefree – great for taking on vacation!
Jimmy Choo Blossom is available at Notino, Ulta, and LOOK FANTASTIC.
Jimmy Choo L’eau
Jimmy Choo L’eau is a light Eau de Toilette which I think is intended to replace the Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette.
It’s a super fresh floral, with a tropical hibiscus note accompanied by fresh peony and a fruity nectarine.
This is another light perfume ideal for humid weather. I love hibiscus in perfumes because it really reminds me of vacation and being in a tropical climate.
Jimmy Choo Fever
Jimmy Choo Fever is a sexy party fragrance. A fruity warm plum is accompanied by vanilla and tonka bean which create a nice sweet base which has good lasting power.
There is a hint of coffee and hazelnut in here (reminding me of YSL Black Opium).
The main floral note in the heart of the fragrance is heliotrope which is quite a heavy floral.
Overall, the Tonka bean is the note which comes through the most for me; making it perfect for cosy winter nights.
Jimmy Choo Floral
Jimmy Choo Floral in my view, should be called Jimmy Choo Fruity instead,
Nectarine and tangerine are the main notes here accompanied by fruity floral scents of apricot blossom and sweet pea.
I love to wear Jimmy Choo Floral in the spring and summer; it’s really uplifting!
Even though this is an Eau de Toilette I actually find it lasts well and performs like an Eau de Parfum. This is probably my second favourite in the range after the original Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum.
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo takes the brands fragrances in a new direction with a totally different bottle shape. The scent is quite similar to what we are seeing from the likes of the Good Girl range from Carolina Herrera, and other best sellers.
I Want Choo is a strong jasmine perfume, accompanied by a peach opening note and a vanilla undertone.
This is one for lovers of Jasmine; think Mugler’s Alien but lighter.
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever was released in 2022, a year which saw lots of new cherry fragrances. This is a sweeter and fruiter fragrance than the original I Want Choo fragrance. A dark Cherry note combines with a warm Rose and Amber undertones to create a sexy perfume ideal for the evenings and date night.
Jimmy Choo Rose Passion
2023 sees the release of a new Jimmy Choo fragrance in the original perfume bottle design. Jimmy Choo Rose Passion is a tropical combination of Frangipani, Coconut Milk and a classic Jasmine fragrance note. This makes the scent quite different to the original Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum and more similar to the Jimmy Choo Exotic perfumes which were released as limited editions a long time ago.
