A dark and mysterious new twist on the iconic I Want Choo scent, the new-for-2022 Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever is a beautiful ambery gourmand perfume with earthy chypre undertones. Sure to add a touch of glitz and glamour to any outfit, I Want Choo Forever has an enchanting sparkling quality just like the original as it starts off with a vibrant and sweet mood before unveiling its boozy vanilla side, which is underpinned by rich green notes.
As a huge fan of the original I Want Choo fragrance, I was surprised by just how similar Forever feels when you first spray it. But I was also impressed by the way it transforms to unveil its own identity. Intrigued? Read on to find out more with my full Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever review…
What Does I Want Choo Forever Smell Like?
The initial spritz is light and hyper-feminine as velvety rose petals settle on your skin to create a slightly juicy sweetness. After a few seconds, you get a hint of spicy pink peppercorn, balanced by the delicious nuttiness of bitter almond oil.
The original fragrance’s floral feel isn’t lost as jasmine unfolds in the heart. But the star of the show has to be a black cherry liquor note; it leaves behind a rich boozy fruity trail throughout the scent. Vetiver adds a very subtle green tinge to the heart, balancing the sweet florals and fruit as its chypre quality radiates across your skin.
The base is a gourmand fragrance lover’s dream seduction as it’s laced with cosy vanilla and tonka bean for a final layer of sweetness. I Want Choo Forever doesn’t become sickly sweet, though, thanks to a moss accord that deepens the earthy tones in the heart and cools down the ambery accords of the base.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Designed to embody the essence of Jimmy Choo’s fashion house, Forever exudes glamour. The transformation from opening spritz to dry down is energetic and bold without losing the sense of fun and playfulness that I Want Choo has come to represent. It’s the perfect reflection of the excitement before a memorable evening.
You Will Love This If…
If you love the original I Want Choo scent and you’re looking for an even more glamorous update, especially for the evening, I Want Choo Forever is going to be your party-perfect scent. That being said, gourmand lovers or those who adore rich ambery scents will enjoy I Want Choo Forever as a bold day-time fragrance.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
I Want Choo Forever reminds me of a cherry bakewell – if the cherry bakewell was served up at the most sophisticated and glamorous party in the heart of the city! The first spray is similar to the original I Want Choo, but the fragrance soon settles into its warm and sweet fruity-floral tones with more warmth, depth and intensity than the original.
Is I Want Choo Forever Unisex?
I Want Choo Forever’s rich, sweet and floral tones have a traditionally feminine feel, but anyone who enjoys gourmand scents will love this Jimmy Choo fragrance.
What’s The Longevity Like?
The lasting power of Jimmy Choo’s Eau de Parfum is around 6 hours; its vanilla and cherry tones linger close to my skin as the day wears on.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The iconic I Want Choo glass flacon has been given a cool smokey grey revamp, but it maintains the same dazzling pops of gold as the original to add a touch of designer glamour to your perfume collection.
