[PERFUME] Review: JIMMY CHOO Flash4:10:00 AM
If you read my previous post about the Jimmy Choo Flash perfume launching event that I attended a while ago, then you might have read on that post about my promise to do a full review post on the perfume itself.
Well here I am, keeping my promise ;)
JIMMY CHOO FLASH
FLASH is the newest fragrance from Jimmy Choo.
Flash is about the thrill of the red carpet, the fun of the night club, the glamour of dressing up. It captures a moment of sheer hedonism where adrenalin and confidence collide. The anticipation, the build-up, the excitement. All those heartbeat moments every woman feels whilst getting ready to go out for an evening of un-adultered fun. Those are the vision of Jimmy Choo Flash.
I can tell just by reading the concept and story behind this perfume that Flash would be right up my alley ;p I love the whole concept, from the box to the bottle to the scent itself. If you would like to know more, keep scrolling down below ;)
We will be talking about the box and the perfume bottle itself.
The box it came with looks very fun and festive (which I like!). The glittering box has an almost diamond-like lustre, and when it hits the light it is like a million miniature paparazzi flashbulbs. The sparkling finish also reflects the effervescent spirit of the fragrance itself.
As I told you on my previous post, the Flash perfume is encased in a luxurious, shimmering crystal-faceted bottle, a reminiscent of paparazzi flash bulbs. We can see how it was designed to play with light and gives a shimmering mesmerizing effect.
Fresh from the box:

The bottle's faceted cap also has a story of it's own. It is shaped to resemble a diamond. The colour of the bottle take it's inspiration from the ultraviolet lights of a nightclub and alludes to the flash of paparazzi bulbs.
I love both the bottle and the box so much. I even proudly showcase the box on the top of my dresser where everyone can see, LOL. I love the shimmers and sparkles on the box because it looks very glamorous which is kinda my thing ;p
FLASH is a white floral scent with a character that is effervescent and provocative. The creator, Christine Nagel created this fragrance for the self-confident, urban Jimmy Choo woman who is sexy, rebellious, and sophisticated.
The top notes includes pink pepper and strawberry for a fresh, sparkling introduction. And then as these glittering top notes evaporates, the heart notes of strong exotic flowers with signature tuberose enriched with notes of jasmine and white lily reveals a heady sexy character.
The base note of white powdery woods gives a lasting impression that is both seductive and sensual, without being too much.
Now I'm bad with describing scent but Flash is basically what the hype is all about. It's feminine, sensual, fun, and sophisticated at the same time. It's not that type of strong scented perfume, but rather a more sophisticated wave of wonderful scent (if you know what I mean ;p).
I love using this perfume for both night and day, as this is not over powering at all so it's perfect for day; but it's also a quite elegant type of scent that is perfect for night time.
I don't know if what I'm about to say would make any sense, but I would say:
If you're womanly, feminine with a bit of attitude, sensual without over doing it, sophisticated with a hint of glamorous fun; then you might want to try Flash ;)
