Jimmy Choo Exotic Eau de Toilette 2015

Jimmy Choo Exotic Eau de Toilette 2015

First of all let's address the above photo, yes just about every blogging photography cliché is going on. Let's acknowledge it and move on...

If you are a fan of Jimmy Choo Exotic Eau de Toilette which has been a limited edition release for the last three years, then you will be pleased to learn that it is returning once again. The scent is exactly the same (more on that below) but in place of the red and pink bottles from the previous years, the 2015 edition is a bright turquoise blue.

Jimmy Choo Exotic EDT lives up to it's name and is probably just how you imagined it would smell - warm, fruity and slightly spicy. It is a lot more intense and full bodied compared to the delicate and altogether more floral based, original Jimmy Choo fragrance. Jimmy Choo Exotic is an equal blend of spice, warm fruits complete with a floral kick. Notes include: Blackcurrant Sorbet, Pink Grapefruit, Passion Flower, Tiger Orchid, Patchouli and gourmand Raspberry. In my opinion the two most prevalent notes are the Pink Grapefruit and Passion Flower - they dominate the fragrance but in a pleasant, strong sense. I'm not overly sure what the spice note is but it is fairly subtle - in my opinion it adds warmth and a little something extra to the overall fragrance.

I have to admit that as much as I like Jimmy Choo Exotic, I do still prefer the original Jimmy Choo version. That being said, I do think fragrance is entirely subjective and on the right person I can imagine this to be a great summer addition, particularly when worn in the evening. If you struggle with Summer scents and find them all to be a little samey - too fruity and/or floral this is the one for you. It is entirely different to any of the other new seasonal launches as of late and as an added bonus, it is really long wearing - a somewhat rarity at the moment.

  1. Oh wow that fragrance looks amazing !!


  2. Isn't it crazy that I only ever really wear Dior perfum? This post has reminded me that I really need to try something else - you know, be a little adventurous with my fragrances. I feel like this one might be a little sweet or 'young' for me though?

    1. I do the same Kiara! Not Dior but Thierry Mugler... I stick to what I know but it can't hurt to branch out :)

  7. I totally agree with you when you say that perfume is subjective, working in Lush coming up for two years I have noticed people grimacing at perfumes that the previous day I heard someone swooning over! I've never tried Jimmy Choo perfume - but I'm tempted to grab the original now. Good shout :)
