Wood Pour Femme is a contemporary and vibrant composition with Sicilian mandarin and raspberry leaf expressing joy and vivacity, combined with lily of the valley and magnolia which add fresh ethereal notes.  The infusion of precious and seductive osmanthus and jasmine reveals intense femininity, whilst notes of white woods and cedar, along with the depth of ambrox, round out a Floral – Woody perfume with an unmistakable character.

Wood Pour Homme

Wood Pour Homme is a powerful, distinctive and masculine fragrance that opens with the Mediterranean freshness of Calabrian bergamot, mandarin and Sicilian lemon and is enriched with elegant, sharp notes of ginger. Vibrant heart notes of violet leaf and cardamom contrast with the distinct sensuality of ambrox in the base, where a modern blend of white woods and vetiver rounds out this Woody – Floral fragrance. 

  • Top notes: Calabrian bergamot, mandarin, lemon and ginger
  • Heart notes: Violet leaf and cardamom

Jimmy Choo Scents – a guide to the range

Hard to believe that Jimmy Choo launched their first fragrance as recently as 2011! Here’s the allbeauty guide to the world of Jimmy Choo perfume and aftershave.

🎄 CHRISTMAS UPDATE: Looking to gift Jimmy Choo perfume or aftershave? Scroll to the end of this post, for tips on which fragrance to choose.

Jimmy Choo Eau de ToiletteThe iconic fragrance, Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum, was an overnight success in 2011 and lead to the creation of Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette the following year. In a bottle designed by Jimmy Choo Co-Founder Tamara Mellon, inspired by her love of Murano glass, the idea was to create something that looks perfectly in place on a bedside table.

Since then we’ve been blessed with new creations every year including Flash (in 2013), Exotic (in 2013), Stars (in 2014) and their first fragrance for men, Jimmy Choo Man, in 2014, followed by  2016’s Man Intense and 2017’s Jimmy Choo Man Ice.

Jimmy ChooFronted by Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, Jimmy Choo Man is a surprisingly woody scent with top notes of lavender and mandarin mixed with honeydew melon, pink pepper, geranium and pineapple leaf. Finally the fragrance leaves a lasting scent of patchouli, suede and ambery wood. Since its debut the scent has won numerous awards and is available with complementary products including deodorant and aftershave balm.

Jimmy Choo Man Intense Eau de Toilette Spray 100mlJimmy Choo Man Intense

Released in 2016,  and favourably compared with Bleu de Chanel, Intense is a great day to night fragrance. With top notes of mandarin orange, melon and lavender, middle notes of geranium, black pepper and Artemisia and base notes of patchouli, tonka bean and lavender.

Jimmy Choo Man Ice – The Latest Creation

In 2017 Jimmy Choo announced new Man Ice, a woody aromatic with notes of mandarin, cedar and moss. Already a winner in the Men’s Health Grooming Awards 2017 who called it “light enough to wear year-round but complex enough to keep people guessing. Perfect for date night”.


Famous Jimmy Choo Fans – these celebs wore Jimmy Choo at defining moments of their careers:

  • 2002 Halle Berry accepting her Oscar
  • 2006 Keira Knightley at the Golden Globes
  • 2009 Michelle Obama at the presidential inauguration
  • 2009 Sandra Bullock accepting her Oscar
  • 2009 Rihanna winning a Grammy
  • 2011 Natalie Portman accepting her Oscar
  • 2012 Meryl Streep accepting her BAFTA
  • 2013 Beyoncé winning a Grammy

EDP & EDT – There is a difference!
One thing that often catches people out is the difference between Jimmy Choo EDP and EDT. They are quite different scents, when generally the only difference between an Eau de Parfum and an Eau de Toilette is the strength. Most people are strongly one or the other! Here’s the difference:

  • Jimmy Choo EDP is a fruity scent with notes of tiger orchid, sweet toffee caramel and Indonesian patchouli.
  • EDT on the other hand contains exotic tiger orchid blended with tea rose on a woody base. Unlike the debut it does not contain patchouli, instead it contains cedar.

Did You Know? Jimmy Choo Creative Director Sandra Choi created a slipper especially for the launch of Disney’s live action Cinderella. Who better to create the most iconic shoe in the world?

Jimmy Choo Fragrance GuideThe latest women’s offering from this design powerhouse is Jimmy Choo Blossom, which was released in 2015 alongside Jimmy Choo Illicit. Blossom is a glorious mix of red berries and citrus cocktail with a heart of sweet pea and rose and complemented by a base of white musk and sandalwood. Illicit on the other hand is a fiery mix of bitter orange and ginger over a base of warm amber.

Gift Buying: Both Jimmy Choo Flash and Jimmy Choo Illicit are aimed at a younger, party loving, confident female and are great for those in their teens to early 30s. The iconic Jimmy Choo EDP and EDT are suitable for all ages – choose the Eau de Toilette if in doubt as it’s a little lighter and doesn’t contain patchouli which can divide opinion. Blossom is also suitable for any age but targeted at more sophisticated party goers who love cocktails and dancing with the girls. Jimmy Choo Man is for the refined, urban gent with a rebellious spirit and will appeal to those who don’t enjoy heavy, spicy scents. Jimmy Choo Man Ice, the latest fragrance, is a lighter-weight scent that’s ideal for the office and will appeal to most men.

Jimmy Choo allbeautyHQ Fans: Both Jimmy Choo EDT and EDP are immensely popular here at allbeautyHQ (it’s probably our go-to scent!) In fact, allbeautyHQ CRM Manager Trinny chose Jimmy Choo Eau de Toilette as her Spring 2017 wedding scent. Trinny told us it’s her all-time favourite perfume: glamorous and feminine and perfect for her special day.
