Jimmy Choo Man was first released to the public in 2014 but still a firm favourite for most people. I hope you enjoy our contents on this website.
Choo was born in Penang, Malaya, into a Hakka family of shoemakers. His family name is Chow (Chinese), but was misspelled on his birth certificate as Choo. He studied at Shih Chung Primary School in Love Lane, Penang. Choo’s father, a shoemaker who made all of his shoes by hand, taught him the craft. Choo made his first pair of shoes when he was 11 years old, a pair of slippers.
After college, Choo worked at two design companies for a total of nine years before opening his own business. Choo’s parents moved to Britain to help him get started, and he eventually expanded the business by opening his own shop in 1986, renting an old hospital building. His craftsmanship and designs were soon noticed at London Fashion Week in 1988. After seeing his creations, Vogue featured the shoes in an eight-page spread. Jimmy Choo has said that his designs became significantly more popular after the Vogue coverage. Patronage from Diana, Princess of Wales in the early 1990s further boosted his image.
In 1996, Choo co-founded Jimmy Choo Ltd with British Vogue magazine accessories editor Tamara Mellon. In April 2001, Choo sold his 50% stake in the company for £10 million. He has since concentrated his work on the exclusive Jimmy Choo couture line produced under license from Jimmy Choo Ltd. The Jimmy Choo London line, also known as Jimmy Choo Ready-To-Wear or, simply, Jimmy Choo, is under the purview of Tamara Mellon. The ready-to-wear line has expanded to include accessories such as handbags.
Between 1982 and 1984, Choo studied at Cordwainers Technical College in Hackney (now part of the London College of Fashion) in London, England. He went to a design firm to work after graduation, wishing to remain in London instead of going back to Malaysia.
Anne has created or collaborated on major releases for Yves Saint-Laurent, Givenchy, Burberry, Lancôme and many more. In 2019 Anne became the first woman to be credited by the IFF (International Flavour & Fragrances) organization as a Master perfumer.

Base Notes – Lavender, Suede, Patchouli
Description of Notes
- Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
- Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
- Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.
What was our Findings
This is a fantastic aftershave from Jimmy Choo, from the moment you apply, you get that mixture of lavender and a fruity fragrance coming from the honeydew melon.
Perfect on the longevity scale, with the fragrance of Patchouli singing along all the way in the back ground. Once you apply, this aftershave will last you at least 6+ hours and at a price of £55.00 upwards for a 100ml bottle it`s a steal for that price.
- Bought this for my husbands birthday he loves the smell of this aftershave. Used the Jimmy Choo Man this is so nice.
- This is an interesting scent in my opinion. It has the spiciness that you get from lavender. But at the same time it has this note that’s hard to describe. It’s like a bright, kind of intense, almost pretty note. I’m guessing that it’s from the combination of pink pepper and pineapple. Or it might just be the pink pepper. It makes this scent a lot different from most typical men’s fragrances that include lavender. It’s interesting. I think I would really enjoy being around someone who was wearing this one. I also think that it could easily be worn day or night – including to work.
- My boyfriends favourite, I bought it for him and it smells amazing like always, I like it because its not too strong, it is perfect and I love it. I wish I could use it lol.
Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.
The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.
Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.
There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;
Description of Types of Perfume
- Perfume or Extrait – in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds.
- Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) – 15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
- Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) – 10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
- Eau de toilette (EDT) – 5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
- Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) – Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
- Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.
Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?
Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.
Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
