Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that you have all had a lovely day! I've been smelling particularly nice this Valentine's because Chris woke me up this morning with a little beauty, for me perfume is the best Valentine's gift!
Jimmy Choo describe this fragrance as a modern fruity chypre with warm, rich, woody depths. With luminous green top notes, an aura of rich exotic tiger orchid and base notes of sweet toffee meld with Indonisian patchouli.
I wish I could sniff a perfume and reach such depths of a description! Alas. I can definitely smell the sweetness of toffee, though this perfumes reminds more of raspberries than anything else. What I do know is that I this perfume is lovely, and really fits in with collection at the moment, which includes, namley, Juicy Couture's Couture Couture, Marc Jacob's Daisy, Paco Rabanne's Lady Million and Armani Code. It's typically sweet perfumes that I go for, particulary for during the day. Jimmy Choo fits this genre exactly, but not in that sickly way some celebrity perfumes achieve, it's just more , well, mature. The best thing about this perfume is that it lasts! All day!... unlike some of the others mentioned above. When first spritzed, being an eau de parfum, it can be a little overpowering, but I don't mind that, all the better for lasting all day!
On to the bottle design... I think it's close to perfect (even if it does remind me of a hand grenade, and it's very similar to Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb)! Very classy from the sturdy black square cap to the beautifully shaped, thick glass bottle. It's now taking pride of place on my dressing table!
What do you think of this perfume? Let me know what your favourite perfumes are at the moment. I hope you all managed to spend your Valentine's Day with people you care about!
