Toffee Fruitchouli
After a fruity opening of a few minutes, with the entrance of toffee and patchouli, Jimmy Choo did make think of Van Cleef & Arpels Oriens. While I was not very fond of the floured raspberry in Oriens, Jimmy Choo's pear and mandarin manage to show a more juicy aspect.

Then the fragrance evolves into its own path. The toffee becomes richer, more creamy, thus makes the whole scent sweeter, while the fruits tend to give out more tartness, somehow manage to keep the balance between the conflicts.

Afterwards, it doesn't change too much, a little bit more chocolate-y, and slowly fades away. The sillage is moderate and the longevity is at least 8 hours. Well, it fits in the recent trend of fruit+candy+patchouli, but it somehow manages to make its way out of the mass. Worths a try, but it still requires a sweet nose. In some stage it's very sweet, beware!

Romance in a bottle
Sophisticated sweetness of the finest grade, super feminine in a very delicate way. So perfect with silky lingerie and silky bed sheets. It carries a strong romantic vibe. Just lovely.

Modern Oriental
Exotic sweet spicy perfume, very long lasting, modern with a cute bottle, in one word fantastic. Reminds me a bit of "let it rock" with more heavy patchouli notes. Best for cold winter time.

*Nice*
Another rather expensive scent whose name conjures up images of lots of pretty shoes and a "Sex and the City" walk-in wardrobe.

It was a gift, and I am glad I didn't pay for it: here is why.

To my nose it's 'nice'. Not earth-shattering, unusual or sexy. No, just 'nice'.
Now don't get me wrong! I like and use 'nice'! The problem is I have lots of 'nice' scents that are cheaper...and perhaps even 'nicer'...?

The opening is pure toffee with patchouli and a hint of pear. The longer it's on my skin the more toffee-ish it gets. One could say it's too sweet or too gourmand. Or one could love it. I think it's just 'nice'. I will wear it but I wont buy it myself. Too many other scents are on my 'want' list that are begging for me to own them! ; )

Silage is: "I smell like patchouli smoked toffee!" -- Longevity is: "I am a blast of toffee and after about an hour I become a close to the skin powdery pear scent....fading into the distance".

Sniff before purchase! And on the skin if you can. This one costs enough and should be really liked! Good luck.

Tenacious fruitchouli
This is called a "fruity chypre" or a "fruitchouli", but to me the patchouli note contained in "Jimmy Choo" smells boring, artificial and chemical. Other releases of the last years ("Oriens" by Van Cleef & Arpels or "Sensuous" by Estee Lauder for that matter) were constructed in the same way, a strong, artificial woody base with overtones of toffee and sandalwood plus patchouli, resulting in very strong, tenacious scents which I find head-ache inducing. "Jimmy Choo" comes in a beautiful perfume vessel, though. Obviously, the big companies think today's clients have better eyes than noses.

Dry patchouli and sticky toffee
I agree with Grottola on Fragrantica, this is indeed an ambitious fragrance. It was also something I didn't expect.

I really like the focus on dry patchouli in Jimmy Choo. It's a note that is not always popular, but has always been a hit with me. The patchouli has been complimented by sweet toffee, chocolatey orchid and an array of tropical fruits. I get the sense that perhaps Jimmy Choo is attempting to follow in Angel's footsteps, but the overall result is quite different.

It's dry, spicy and foody most of the time, with the occasional hint of syrupy orange and pear. I actually like this fragrance despite it being quite strong and earthy. It's an enticing scent to say the least.

I'll have to disagree that this smells like Flowerbomb. Perhaps in the drydown there's a slight resemblance, in terms of Jimmy Choo being quite musky, soft and sweet, but to my nose this fragrance smells unique.

I really enjoy the dark richness that Jimmy Choo conveys. It lasts an incredibly long time and it projects extremely well. All in all, Jimmy Choo smells good to me, but for some it may be too masculine, earthy or too heavy.

fruity-gourmand and pleasant, but nothing special . Looking at the elegant bottle, I was expecting more from this fragrance.+4
