Usually, before buying a perfume I like to spend a while researching and I end up testing out way too many to count! This is the first time I bought perfume without doing any of that and I love it!
Well, I did hang out in Duty-Free for a good half an hour, but that’s not very long when it comes to deciding on a fragrance! Perhaps for some people, but not for me!
The perfume I had been using had just finished, so I was a bit desperate. I smelt about 50 different perfumes with no luck. Then I smelt Jimmy Choo Illicit Eau de Parfum. I was sold!
What stuck out to me about the Jimmy Choo Illicit perfume is that the smell isn’t too strong and overpowering and that it’s not flowery either. These are two things that I always look out for in a perfume.
I don’t like very strong smells- they tend to give me headaches and when I enter a room I don’t need all heads turning because of my strong smell!
I also don’t like very flowery scents. It’s just a personal preference.
So what do I love about this perfume? Well, pretty much everything about it.
It’s an entirely unique fragrance and was developed by perfumer Anne Flipo. Illicit’s notes include a blend of ginger, rose, honey-amber and sandalwood.
According to Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s creative director, “Illicit embodies the daring spirit of the Jimmy Choo woman. She is alluring, hypnotic and lives her life to the full.” This is not me. Yet, I do love this scent!
Although the packaging doesn’t make a difference to the actual perfume, it’s still something that sways us! Jimmy Choo Illicit is luxurious and gorgeous!
The perfume comes in a clear glass cylinder with vertical ridges, inspired by Art Deco. The bottle comes in a rose pink box. Both together, exude luxury which every woman deserves!
To sum it up this is one of the best smelling perfumes I have ever owned. It has a warm, romantic scent, that’s sexy and fun at the same time. It is perfect for an everyday scent yet at the same time also perfect for occasion wear.
It’s also long-lasting with the scent lasting all day. All in all, it’s a perfume that is worth the price and one that I will definitely buy again in the future!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this review on the Jimmy Choo Illicit Eau de Parfum. Would love to hear your thoughts and comments below.
