So let’s cut down to the chase: As a new semester started, and I am eager for a new season to begin (March 20th cannot come soon enough!), I figured it was time to switch up my signature smell. If you keep up with my Instagram and Twitter, you will remember that Jimmy Choo launched their first fragrance for men, and I immediately knew I wanted it. For Christmas, I gifted myself with the 3.3 Oz bottle of the fragrance, the after shave balm, and the all-over shower gel.
After using the products for several days, I have to say that I am not disappointed! When Jimmy Choo launched Jimmy Choo Man in London, their CEO described it as “a woody scent, it is a balance between eccentric and classic with top notes of lavender, honeydew melon, and mandarin essence, with pineapple leaf and geranium at the heart and a base of patchouli and amber-based wood harmonies.” Of course that’s from the mouth of someone who knows all the ingredients in the fragrance and has been there for every step. As I used the products, I started a note in my phone to write down words or phrases that came to mind. So here is my short review of the fragrance and the other products as a whole:
-Not too over powering
-Subtle, yet enduring
The only complaint that I have with the fragrance is that it does not last as long as I wish it did. On some days, depending on the weather, I have found myself reapplying once or twice throughout the day. In reality, that is not a problem for me; some people just may get overwhelmed by the amount of cologne that I have on.
I definitely think that this fragrance was made with our generation in mind. It’s a great fragrance for the guy who is purchasing cologne for the first time. It is also great for the guy that wants to get that occasional “you smell really good” compliment from the ladies.
The Jimmy Choo man is “the man who goes out with the Jimmy Choo woman. He is confident, sensual, he is tough and still romantic, and he is the counterpart to the Jimmy Choo woman, who is sexy and powerful. He’s a cosmopolitan Mayfair playboy.” Do you think you have what it takes? Don’t you want to smell good Choo?
