Flash By Jimmy Choo Take a whiff by just reading this article as we dissect Jimmy Choo's latest fragrance.

Just a simple glance on the bottle gives you a hint of its purpose: the invisible arsenal for sexiness, Flash by Jimmy Choo is the latest fragrance from the renowned name of stylish shoes.

To give you an idea of how it smells like before you hit the perfume counters, we'll help you navigate this enticing fragrance by peeling the perfume layer by layer. First up is the packaging; for those perfume lovers who are primarily attracted to display-worthy bottles, Flash's bottle was inspired by chandelier from the 1970s. It also reminds us of the glimmering lights in clubs. 

The scent itself is made of an unusual mix of strawberries, tuberose, and white wood, spiked up with hints of pink peppercorn. On your first whiff,  you'll smellthe freshness of strawberries and the spice of the peppercorns. As the perfume is absorbed by your skin the carnal scent of the white flowers seeps in. Throughout the day the powdery scent of whitewood lingers. The deep florals and warm aroma of wood and peppercorns create the right balance. The fragrant cocktail is a sensual yet light fragrance. 

Our verdict: The long lasting subtle seduction of Flash by Jimmy Choo is worth wearing. The playful yet sexy scent can be worn both during the day and the night. Your first spritz of this perfume isn't too overpowering. We are also amzed by its longevity; it lasted for eight hours on our wrists and that includes frequent handwashing.
