Built around the fascinating, almost hypnotic, red spider lily, I Want Choo is a deep yet uplifting floral scent combining soft vanilla notes with the sensual vibes of jasmine sambac. A burst of fruity notes combines the sparkling citrus of mandarin juice and contrasting smooth, velvety peach. The bottle is a true object of desire. A gold spray cap with hammered jewelled effect and the signature JC emblem is underlined by the soft and elegant peach tint of the fragrance.

What we say:
I’ve become accustomed to a lot in the past year: working from home, spending weekends at home, cancelling events and putting travel plans on hold. Almost all of it has been bearable, but the one thing I have missed more than anything else during this pandemic, is the nights spent with friends. There is something magical about an evening with girlfriends; getting dressed together, doing hair and makeup together and having a glass of bubbly before a night out. These moments are truly irreplaceable.
I Want Choo, the new scent by Jimmy Choo, takes me back to those nights. When I spritz it on, I can hear the music playing while the girls and I style each other’s hair, I can picture the outfits and almost feel the excitement and anticipation of an evening out on the town.
I’ve always enjoyed Jimmy Choo fragrances, but this latest release is by far my favourite. It’s fruity and sparkling upon the first few spritzes, but becomes richer and warmer when red spider lily, the fragrance note right at the heart of this scent, and the creamy vanilla and benzoin notes at the base, come to the fore. I love that the scent if playful and flirty, but that it offers a good dose of allure.
And while I dream of one day owning a pair of Jimmy Choo heels, I take comfort in the absolute beauty of the I Want Choo bottle on my dressing table. A true object of desire, the peachy liquid is housed in a gorgeously feminine glass bottle, adorned with the Jimmy Choo monogram.
I might not be headed back to a nightclub any time soon, but I Want Choo is fulfilling my dreams of a girls’ night out, right at home.
