Jimmy Choo has opened a whole new chapter with his Jimmy Choo Man Blue. It’s a woody aromatic leathery fragrance designed for Jimmy Choo by Nathalie Lorson, master perfumer. “I composed this set of textures around three elements: the aromatic and velvety texture of sage leaves, the grained and raw texture of leather and the smooth texture of sandalwood to create a masculine and modern addiction” explains Nathalie.
