Summary: When I initially sprayed this on, it felt too strong and off putting. I dismissed it quickly and went ahead but as time passed, Jimmy Choo Edp evolved into this gorgeously rich toffee-caramel-patchouli-coffee-tobacco scent which was intoxicating! And the staying power was commendable. This is definitely going to be a favourite this winter, and I can imagine it going perfectly with the smell of leather jackets and warm latte.
Summary: I agree with the comparisons to Flowerbomb, they're clearly in the same vein, particularly with the sweet patchouli and orchid notes. But Jimmy Choo is sweeter (if you can believe it), more candyish and less floral. It has a crowd-pleasing appeal but it still says "notice me." This is the kind of femininity that walks around humming "I Enjoy Being a Girl." Flowerbomb is more complex and sparkling, but this is a perfectly good fragrance for those with a sweet tooth.
Summary: I have to admit, I was expecting to hate this and I never even bothered to try it. However, I received a sample from Sephora and said what the heck... And I sprayed a little on my arm. At first, I did smell the patchouli but it wasn't over the top as I expected. The notes look odd, but they blend beautifully! I can see why this may not be for everyone but it reminds me of walking into a luxury shoe store.
Summary: I love patchouli, but usually can't wear it. This year, have decided to try patchouli again. I was pleasantly surprised when Fairy Dust worked out for me, but I had to get through the initial spray. Jimmy Choo has no initial blast-issues. This starts as a warm toffee, patchouli. There is a soft floral undertone, and it has a touch of powder. The way it works with my chemistry, it is best not on a day that is too hot.
