Fast Friday – Dare to be different

If you’re in the market for a new scent, read on.

Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower is a fresher EDT version of the bestselling perfume.

Let it win your heart, thanks to its summery and sensual blend of notes.JC_IF

Created for a graceful woman, unafraid to toy with the rules but who never goes too far, the fragrance opens with voluptuous notes of apricot, zest of mandarin and the floral notes of freesia. In the heart, enhanced by a vibrant duo of grapefruit flower and jasmine, the ultra-feminine rose weaves her charms, whilst delicately wrapped in a soft and sensual musk. In the base, sensual woody notes of cashmeran meet the creaminess of sandalwood to perfectly close the fragrance.
