Inspired by the outspoken, hypnotic seductress who plays by her own rules, Illicit was the punchier sister to the slightly more delicate offering of Illicit Flower from Jimmy Choo.
A new twist on the original, here, juicy apricots and sparkling mandarin have been added to the leading rose accord. An interesting floral note of grapefruit flower has been fused with jasmine at the heart to make for a scent that practically blossoms right out the bottle.
The underlying sultry base of musk, creamy sandalwood and cashmeran lingers on the skin and makes the spring-like blossoms that started the show, dry down to something a little darker, a little more inviting. A perfect scent for transitioning from day to night.
It’s housed in a beautiful, chunky Art Deco style bottle, inspired by the chandeliers that hung in famed Jimmy Choo stores around the globe. The rosy pink elixir within is the perfect contrast to the bold bottle, embodying the varying characteristics of the Illicit girl: from delicate rose to studded siren at a moment’s notice.
