The thing about Jimmy Choo perfumes is, I rarely wear them myself. It’s not that I don’t like them, I actually do, I just feel I am a little old for them. However, I always like to feature new releases on my blog, as I know you guys want to hear about them, and not only that, when it comes to youthful, fancy-free fragrances, Jimmy Choo do it best!
It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since Jimmy Choo released Illict, I feel like this fragrance went viral fast. Everywhere I went, I saw adverts for it, POS in stores, bloggers raving about it and amazing reviews online. What can I say, ladies love Illicit! Their latest addition to the Illicit family, is Illicit Flower, which is similar to the original, but it has a more fresh floral feel to it. For me, it feels less candy sweet, sexy and dark, instead, it’s lighter, fresher and more summery.
At the top of the fragrance is has the sweet fruitiness of apricot, citrus freshness of mandarin and fresh freesia. The heart of the fragrance is rich florals with rose, jasmine and a hint of grapefruit flower. At the base of the perfume, imagine sweet musks, sandalwood and creamy cashmere. Together, Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower is a beautifully summery fruity-floral with a hint of mischief and a lot of heart. It makes me think of spring blossom, sunny afternoons, cocktails, fruit salad, sun cream and summer anticipation. It’s feminine and pretty and if I was a younger version of me, I would be asking for it for my birthday!
