Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum
7th October 2014
I thought I’d do something new here at empfire. I though I’d review some perfume seen as I’ve just obtained a new bottle of Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum. Here goes nothing.
The packaging is really not to my liking. The snake skin print looks tacky and the inner box is that horrible pink colour that old ladies wear. You know which shade of pink I mean. 😉 The font on the box makes it looks like a fake (which I can assure you it isn’t) and overall it’s just not exciting. The packaging doesn’t scream “designer brand”, rather more “cheap and cheerful”. It’s a shame really.
This bottle is the 40ml (retailing at around £39.99) and is quite adorable. It’s dinky and the perfect size for your handbag. It is also available in 60ml and 100ml, as well as being available in Eau de Toilette form in all three sizes too.
To me, this Jimmy Choo perfume seems to have a fruity scent to it with perhaps a hint of vanilla. The smell is quite strong just after application, but a little goes a long way and smell is long lasting yet subtle. It’s not overpowering but I’m still able to smell it even with my cold and blocked nose.
Overall I would rate this perfume a 4 out of 5. While I love the scent, and I like to have a change now and then, the Jimmy Choo perfume doesn’t have such a distinctive smell like my favourite perfume; Armani Code. Also, the designers need to try harder with that packaging!
If you are interested in purchasing this perfume, Amazon seems like the cheapest place to buy it. Don’t worry, this post isn’t sponsored. I’m not going to force you to hand your money over to Amazon. 😛
