Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower

Every woman would love something in a box with the words "Jimmy Choo" emblazoned across the top.  Unfortunately most of us the shoes are but a dream but the brand offer us all something more attainable and just as delicious.  

Jimmy Choo just get fragrance, they manage to capture a fragrance which is wearable and has great mass market appeal.  Even if we forget about the brand name on the bottle the fragrances are really wearable and instantly recognisable.  

Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower* is one of the latest launches from the brand and while I wasnt a fan of the original Illicit I am loving the ladylike chic of Illicit Flower. 

The bottle is art deco inspired and for me it manages to be both simple and decadent.  You couple picture this on the makeup table of Zelda Fitzgerald or on a modern Instagramable Ikea desk.

Lets explore the fragrance

The notes

Top: Apricot, Mandarin and Freesia

Heart: Rose, Grapefruit Flower and Jasmine

Bottom: Musk, Sandalwood and Cashmeran

The Rose has been a very trendy ingredient in fragrances, while it has never gone out of fashion it has made a definite resurgence.   The fragrance opens fresh and fruity giving a youthful vibe but as it develops the rose emerges and you get much more feminine and ladylike feel, as the fragrance develops further you smell the musk and without it overpowering or loosing the rose.

Jimmy Choo have taken a traditional ingredient and created a fragrance which is both classic and modern.  Illicit Flower is one of those perfumes that when I smell it on a jumper or scarf it makes me inhale deeply, the more I wear it, the more I love it.  The more the fragrance develops the more I love it.


I love Illicit Flower from the decedent but simple bottle to the ladylike but modern fragrance.

Illicit flower is out now and costs 40ML- €43, 60ml - €65 and 100ml €95.
