Evoking an audacious and enigmatic spirit, ILLICIT awakens the senses, calling out to every woman who dares to live life to the full, relishing in the joy of experiences that balance on the edge of risk. Awakening a provocative nature that simmers below the surface the name symbolises a confident woman in charge of her own destiny unafraid to challenge the status quo. Tempting, seductive, risk-taking and totally in control she is a force to be reckoned with. In the advertising campaign, this Jimmy Choo woman is embodied by the singer, model and actress Sky Ferreira.

The Face – Sky Ferreira
With a career that begun online, Sky Ferreira is ILLICIT personified. Sky’s Californian spirit, rock style and fearless attitude made her a natural choice for ILLICIT, a confident woman who lives the life she dares. At the tender age of just 23, Sky Ferreira is not only well known for her music but also for her free spirit. And if the talented young singer songwriter acknowledges her fragilities, she’s turned them into a strength. She has now become the face of Illicit, Jimmy Choo’s new perfume. Rebellious and provocative, she’s about to release a second album with a telling title: Masochism.

“I’ve never had a set way of doing things which works because it’s always exciting, always different. I believe every woman should live the life she dares, I don’t set boundaries for myself and my music is similar – a bit edgy but lots of fun; just like the fragrance. Scents are very important to me and ILLICIT evokes sensuality and confidence. I spray it before I play on stage and my nerves disappear.”  Sky Ferreira.

The Fragrance
An entirely unique olfactory experience, comforting ginger flirts with feminine rose and sophisticated jasmine before drying down to reveal the perfume’s pièce de résistance – a gourmand honey-amber accord. Intertwined with a thread of sandalwood to mellow and smooth the sweetness, it envelops the wearer in a swathe of sensory pleasure.

Effortlessly melting into the skin to create a veil of mystique, this modern floriental is edgy enough to wear with leather but elegant enough to spritz on silk. Truly divine. Truly Illicit.

Top Notes: Ginger and Bitter Orange
Heart Notes: Rose and Sambac Jasmine
Base Notes: Honey-amber accord and Sandalwood

The bottle
Strong, multi-faceted and intricate, ILLICITS crystal bottle mirrors the architectural silhouette of an art deco style crystal glass tumbler. With raised rivets around the base, the luxurious golden perfume glints from within contained by a striking square silver top. Cool and contemporary, the bottle makes for a striking display piece to adorn dressing tables.
