You can tell perfumers are in a mood to party this season when you scan the list of ingredients in the new fragrances this month. Layered within the notes of rose, sandalwood and bergamot hide some surprising ingredients: spirits. Perfumers are adding a splash of whisky, rum, absinthe and most interesting black cherry liquor. Why?

“Alcoholic spirits add a boozy facet to any fragrance,” explains one scent expert. “It’s a way to identify the eau de parfum as an evening or party composition and gives it an alluring or sexy character.” Atkinsons’ Pirate’s Grand Reserve contains a healthy dose of Caribbean rum which blends nicely with cacao and vanilla – you are immediately transported to a tropical vacation destination. The Michael Kors’ Island Palm Beach from 2011 pairs jasmine, tea, grapefruit and smooth rum, a tropical drink you’d likely find at the famous Breakers Hotel. And the new Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever takes the trend to the next level with an addictive black cherry liquor accord.

Black cherry liquor has a sweet warm aroma with a little kick to it. As you’d imagine, it is a little alcoholic and truly smells like a drink you’d order at a bar. What makes it more interesting is it blends seamlessly with a juicy rose note. Damask rose can have a fruity facet that does smell a little like cherry. So the combination of the two makes for a memorable fragrance.

This holiday season, kick up your heels and try a fragrance with a spirited ingredient such as black cherry liquor.

Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever is available in Canada at Hudson’s Bay stores,, Shoppers Drug Mart stores and

    I completely agree with wanting to jazz things up this season!! Loved that big bottle showcased on Cityline!! Black cherry is alluring enough. But give me a huge bottle of it, and it’s on! Love other Choo fragrances. Bet this one smells good, too! Thx Dave!!

    This sounds like such an interesting note. I like black cherry ice cream so will have to give this a sniff the next time out.
