heavy duty fruitchouli
I had my doubts about Jimmy Choo Exotic, as it looks like a heavy duty fruity floral. I was drawn in , though by the "black currant sherbet" note, as I am always seeking the ultimate black currant. It turns out to be a strong but pleasant "fruitchouli" that reminded me a bit of Nicole Miller Frenzy, but with darker fruit. (Frenzy has a lot of orange in it, to my nose.) It seems like the strongest fruit note in Exotic is raspberry, with barely any black currant. It's not terrible, but not that different from a lot of other "fruitchouli" scents. And, unlike the others, it gave me a bit of a headache.
