Golden Honey
A very warm fragrance with high recognition value. It is very goumandig with a certain depth without appearing overloaded like many other fragrances. The name Illicit doesn't fit so well, because it doesn't seem forbidden at all, but still very sensual.

Cotton candy for ginger tea
I have rummaged the smell here because of the ginger, which I like very much in perfumes.
I can't understand the name because it promises me an extravagant, controversial and unadapted perfume. It's not. But go on.

The bottle reminds me, as with "eaudemoiselle", of the heavy cut glasses that my grandparents had in their bar in the showcase. The color of very strong ginger tea with honey and that fits.

The first cloud and I stand at the Christmas market in front of the car with glazed apples, roasted almonds and cotton candy. This extreme sweetness and caramel note is very dominant and at the same time burns a sharpness in the nose. Delicious, interesting, almost too much.

After 30 minutes continue on the market to the stand with pastries. Sweet gingerbread with ginger and orange jam come to mind. The honey becomes stronger and stronger and reminds of drugstore honey milk liquid soaps, recently with Manuka honey, which smells very spicy intense. I've got it right in front of me, just without the milk. The orange remains fruity, but makes room for the light, clean and fresh rose. The jasmine gives even more sweetness. The ginger continues to warm in the background.

After 3h and with cold feet home and a ginger tea cooked with dried rose petals. Too much time wasted changing socks and the tea is lukewarm. A lot of honey added, ginger quite light and pleasantly spicy. The roses give quite a weak soapy note. It remains warming, delicious, sweet and a toast with orange jam still has room. After the bright start this is a really nice finale and fits perfectly to cold winter days.

If someone likes the "Honey I washed the Kids" soap, it could be something, just with a sharp kick.

very much legal
I know the perfume companies have decided that the Bad Girl is "in" nowadays. She's Guilty, she's Poison Girl, she's Good Girl Gone Bad! But really, Jimmy Choo - this girl isn't Illicit. She's drinking a cup of tea her grandmother made, trying to get over a cold! For the first hour, she's ginger-honey tea with a bit of synthetic chemical lurking unpleasantly in the background (possibly whatever they're using for sandalwood here). After an hour, the potency of this scent is so much that I have to scrub my arm to get it to quiet down. Then I realize what this is - it's Estee Lauder Sensuous without the black pepper and mandarin! Sorry, Jimmy. I liked Estee's version better, and her perfume had a more accurate name, too!
