Jimmy Choo Flash Gift Set ♥

I’ve received a couple of new fragrance gift sets from Fragrance Direct recently, but as they’re totally different I thought I’d do two separate blog posts for them. The first set is by Jimmy Choo, which is the new Flash fragrance.

The Flash gift set includes a 60ml eau de parfum fragrance as well as a 100ml body lotion, which comes presented in a super sparkly coffret box. Gift sets almost always offer better value than buying a single box of perfume, as they’re often the exact same price, but come with the additional gift and nicer presentation. In case you’ve not heard me rant on about it before, I used to work on the fragrance departments in Superdrug, Boots, and Debenhams, so I’m pretty much a perfume addict. I love, love, love buying and trying new perfumes, and I have quite a few bottles at home, but I’m no expert!

As long as something smells nice to me, I’m happy. I chose this perfume to try because I love the original Jimmy Choo EDP (reviewed here) and so thought this would similarly suit my taste. I’m not great at reviewing perfumes, because using fancy words etc don’t really mean much to me, but I can tell you, this perfume is nice! For the more knowledgeable of you – it “contains sweet top notes of strawberry, pink pepper and tangerine, and powdery and floral hints of tuberose, jasmine and white lily”

As with the original, it’s more of an evening scent than something I’d wear to work or during the day. It’s fairly strong, but not unpleasantly so. I think it probably wouldn’t suit everyones tastes, but I do really like it personally. Presentation-wise, it comes in a square glass bottle with a diamond look lid, which I think confirms the fact it’s more of a glamorous evening fragrance than fresh and fruity.

What’s your favourite evening perfume?
