Jimmy Choo Perfume Review (Flowerbomb Dupe)

jimmy choo perfume original bottle buy uk sweet floral fruit wood musk vanilla nice evening night day everyday scent perfume review viktor and rolf flowerbomb dupe cheaper alternative designer

Its no secret to you all that Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is my favourite perfume EVER! I've used it for years and got through a fair amount of bottles of the stuff. Despite finding my perfect scent I still continue to be a bit of a perfume addict. I buy a couple every year and not a day goes by that I'm not wearing anything.

When in search of a new perfume to change up your scent what do you do? that's right, go for the one perfume that is probably the closest to a replica of Flowerbomb. Everything about Jimmy Choo reminds me  of Flowerbomb. The bottle is a murano glass inspired angular sphere - quite like the original Flowerbomb bottle. The scent, a sickly sweet floral - just like Flowerbomb. Jimmy Choo contains notes of fruit, florals and wood. At first the scent wears as a very sweet fruity floral, but dries down to a woody scent. It's pretty long lasting for a floral/fruit but not so much so that it matches the strength of Flowerbomb. It's not the most subtle of scents, but you could get away with wearing this as an everyday scent, provided you use a light hand. Although a lovely scent and a cheaper alternative to my favourite, I would only ever repurchase in a small size. For me, its just too similar to Flowerbomb to spend so much money buying large sizes of both. If you're fond of sweet, floral, fruit scents but find Flowerbomb just too overpowering, Jimmy Choo by Jimmy Choo may be a cheaper, slightly more subtle alternative.

Have you tried either Flowerbomb or Jimmy Choo?

  5. Really want to try both of these (mainly because I love the bottles haha). I love quite strong scents, and imagine this is quite girly and floral - I must get round to giving it a try!

  17. I love flowerbomb and wore it before it blew up. The price went from $75- $150 overnight at Sephora! It was then that I decided to venture out into some other scents. I loved Jennifer Aniston's perfume for the summer, it's light and fresh and only about $60. My newest love is Candy by Prada...it's warm and sweet, similar to Flowerbomb, but not as powerful! I loved that flowerbomb could cover any smell! - I'm your newest follower, love your blog!
