Perfume: Jimmy Choo ‘Illicit’

Jimmy Choo 

Jimmy Choo do the impossible; they make sweet, youthful perfumes which are candy-like and pretty. They are the teenage dream which mother’s don’t mind their daughters wearing. They side-step precocious and always use high-quality ingredients to bring their customers the best youthful, fun and sweet fragrances.


Illicit is the new fragrance by Jimmy Choo, it is inspired by the free spirited girls of LA, think fresh faced, fun-loving, daring, glamorous and care free. The campaign is fronted by musician Sky Ferreira who really embodies the spirit of the perfume. She is young, beautiful, talented, glamorous and edgy.


Top notes: Ginger, Bitter Orange

My Thoughts

Sky Ferreira is the perfect front woman for Jimmy Choo Illicit; she is beautiful, young and cool, which is exactly what the perfume is. There is no hit of alcohol when you spray this perfume on as it is a quality perfume which uses great ingredients. Unlike most youthful perfumes, it doesn’t scrimp on quality, which is why younger women love Jimmy Choo perfumes so much. Whilst it is too young for me, I do think it is lovely and next time I buy a sweet, youthful perfume as a gift, this is the one I will go for. It has best seller written all over it and I love the slick bottle and the beautiful campaign imagery!

This perfume launches in September, it will be available at Boots, House of Fraser, John Lewis and many other major stockists!
