Product Review – Jimmy Choo Illicit Perfume*

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while, you will know how much I love perfumes. I use to be a perfume hoarder freak, with over 10 bottles at a time, until I went into recovery, lol. I am a lot better now, and quite happy with only 5 bottles at a time.

Jimmy Choo wowed me with the previous Jimmy Choo perfume. So I was very happy to receive this Illicit perfume by Jimmy Choo as a gift last Christmas.

The Jimmy Choo Illicit perfume was released August 2015. It comes in a 40, 60 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. I have a bit to say about it, but before I dive into the review, here is what Jimmy Choo has to say about this perfume:

The Illicit perfume is designed for women who are tempting, seductive, risk-taking and totally in control. This fragrance embodies the daring spirit of a woman who is hypnotic, attractive and living life to the fullest. It is a modern floral, created by the perfumer; Anne Filpo. It starts with frizzy notes leading to the floral heart and the warm, honey-amber base. Ginger and bitter orange open the composition. The heart consists of rose and jasmine sambac, laid on the base of honey-amber accord and sandalwood.

“ILLICIT embodies the daring spirit of the Jimmy Choo woman. She is alluring, hypnotic and lives her life to the full.”
– Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo.

Here are my thoughts on this perfume:

PROS

  1. It is a light, feminine, sensual fragrance, which I love. It is soft enough for day time wear, and great to rock in the summer season.
  2. It is long-lasting. It stays on for a few hours.
  3. I love the design of the bottle. It is simple but so chic.
  4. I like the fact that it comes in various sizes – 40, 60 & 100ml, hence various prices. A 40ml bottle goes for £42, 60ml goes for £54 and a 100ml goes for £78.
  5. This fragrance is readily available online and in many other departmental stores.

CONS

  1. I wish the fragrance stays on longer. It disappears after a couple of hours.

Overall, I love this fragrance. I think it is fab, and I will definitely use it again. I recommend it to any perfume lover looking for a light fragrance to use this summer.

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day.

“Nicole has perfectly captured the mood of our autumn/winter 2013-14 collection; her character portrays the multi-faceted qualities of the Jimmy Choo woman for this season – strong, sexy with a beguiling sense of mystery,” said Choi.

Nicole Kidman Is The New Face Of Jimmy Choo

Nicole Kidman; the Australian beauty is the new face of Jimmy Choo. She will feature in the brand’s autumn/winter 2013-2014 campaign. The campaign was shot last month by photographer Mikael Jansson and is described as having “a cinematic feel that hints at the power and seduction of the Jimmy Choo woman”.

“I’ve always loved fashion and often use it as a way to get into character,” said Kidman. “There is a lot of complexity, mystery and femininity to the Jimmy Choo woman.”

“I’m such a great admirer and feel enormously honoured to be working with Nicole Kidman,” said Sandra Choi – the creative director. “Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world, who I knew could convey the empowered glamour of the brand. But she is also so nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality and elegance.”
