Bruno Fazzolari Jimmy EDT Perfume Review

Bruno Fazzalori Jimmy

Poets inspire perfume and perfume inspired poetry. Bruno Fazzolari Jimmy is a perfume inspired by New York school poet James Schuyler.

Jimmy opens as honeydew melons and roses in a florist’s fridge. Jimmy wears as a fresh, fruity floral. In the perfume world, this may sound repetitious but it isn’t. Jimmy is like a dewy violet and rose. Coquettish but not fickle. The dry-down is green and mossy but not in a classic chypre way. It actually reminds me of living moss – fresh moss. This is contrasted by a smooth, creamy ambergris.

I love that such a pretty fruity floral perfume is inspired by such a capricious person and scrupulous poet. And I think Schuyler would have really liked this perfume and he could write about it much better than I ever could.

Notes listed include ylang ylang, cassis, rose, geranium, violet leaf, heliotrope, sandalwood, moss, ambergris and daylight. Launched in 2013. PERFUMER – Bruno Fazzolari

Give Jimmy a try if you like fruity-florals. Or if you like perfumes like Lili Bermuda Pink, L’Artisan Parfumeur Fleur de Liane, Jo Malone London Wild Bluebell, A Dozen Roses Electron and/or Penhaligon’s Violetta. Jimmy is a fragrance that leans more traditionally “feminine” and I love that it’s called “Jimmy”.

Projection and longevity are average for an EDT.

The 1 oz bottle retails for $96 at Bruno Fazzolari. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA crisp violet and rose floral. It’s a really pretty yet cultivated fruity-floral. It’s not my favorite to wear from this indie line, but I enjoy wearing it. I have to be in the mood for such a “pretty” perfume.

  1. Like you, I enjoy that such a feminine smelling scent has a masculine name. This sounds like something I would really enjoy as I’ve been on the lookout for a honeydew note in a perfume. Definitely adding on my list.

    1. It’s really, really pretty. I feel my review isn’t doing it justice. It’s one of those that “sounds” very average but in reality, it’s different. I highly recommend this one to anyone that likes wearing florals.
