So anyway, it is definitely stronger from the bottle than it was on the test strip (I know, so surprising, right?) and at first I was like ahhh what did I do? And then, within 30 minutes, it faded into that perfect scent I remembered. The site describes the scent as a blend of tiger orchid, sweet toffee, and patchouli, along with “green top notes,” but I have to be honest, those words mean nothing to me. It just smells sort of romantic and sexy, without being standoff-ish (apparently the Gucci by Gucci–side note: Sephora stopped selling this! What!–I’ve been wearing in the evening was a bit “intense,” but I won’t point fingers as to who didn’t tell me that until I switched to Jimmy Choo).
And so there you have it. Pricey? Indeed. But Jimmy Choo is now a new part of my perfume line-up, and it pays for itself in that really does last longer than other scents. One tip is that it a lot of the scent comes out of spray top at once, so I actually spray it on a tissue and then dab it on so it’s not all concentrated in one spot. But that’s just me.
