Jimmy by Bruno Fazzolari 2013

Jimmy Bruno Fazzolari FragranticaFragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Lemon, yang slang
Heart: Rose, geranium
Base: Violet leaves, heliotrope, sandalwood

Hailing from my hometown of San Francisco, award-winning Indie perfumer Bruno Fazzolari creates gorgeous perfumes often built around a work of art created by, who else…Bruno Fazzolari! Here is how he describes his range…..

“Idiosyncratic and uncanny scents that merge classic and contemporary styles of perfumery. Some were created for exhibitions, others draw inspiration from poets, composers, and film.

Each scent is offered as a boxed artist’s edition and includes an image reference card that connects the perfume with its visual counterpart.”

Fazzolari has created some now-iconic scents including Lampblack (2013), Seyrig (2015), and this years collaboration with Bogue Profumo’s Antonio Gardoni; Cadavre Exquise (2016)

Jimmy is best described as fresh flowers and daylight: violets and roses with a base of moss and ambergris, enlivened with a hint of spice. Essentially a really stunning floral built around Ylang Ylang, Rose Otto, Geranium, Violet Leaf, Heliotrope, Sandalwood, and is named after Pulitzer prize winning American poet James Schuyler, who among many other things was quite passionate about flowers, and all things garden-related.

It wears like a dream, perfect for warm sunny days, and those cool winter days when you need a blast of Spring!

Jimmy is one of those every-minute-huff-worthy scents, you know the kind. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but you are COMPELLED to keep your wrist glued to your nose. The scent you MUST buy a full bottle of within 20 minutes of first application. And then a back-up bottle. Or two. It’s just that pleasing and ubër-gorgeous. Yup. THAT’S the one.

LuckyScent has $110/30ml

(And if you can find it, snag a bottle of his annual limited edition Au Dela-Narcisse Des Montagnes. It’s rarer than hen’s teeth and worth every penny!) Have you tried any of the Fazzolari line? What are your favorites?

  1. I’m on my second 5 ml sample of Cadavre Exquise…what a power house! I love the concept of visualizing the scent and tying it to a specific person, icon. I have just begun to try my newly arrived samples and now this. Sigh. Must try. I’m a gardener and love poetry, and I’m wilting in Sacto, next door to cool SF, and this sounds like what I need.


    • I know how hot (916) can get!! Ugh. Beastly!! Time to head up into the foothills, if they’re not burning! My decant of C.E. Is on its way, can’t wait!


  2. The timing of this article is such a coincidence because I got Lampblack and wore it last week. It was my first acquisition from the brand.


  3. Hi Robert – a lovely perfume friend gave me a tiny sample of Jimmy which i have used twice and i adore it. I really need a larger bottle or large decant but its hard to find in the UK. I must put out some feelers again. I have also tried Lampblack and gifted it to a male friend who loved it. Bruno Fazzolari makes superb scents!


  4. Hi Pats, it’s pretty great isn’t it! Have you tried ordering straight from Bruno’s website? I know shipping between the UK and the USA is a pain, but maybe he can figure something out for you! Xoxo


  5. Hi Robert and thanks for the review. This one sounds like a must have. I’m sure I’d love it. After reading a review of Seyrig from The Non-Blonde I was hunting for a sample and I was lucky to get it from a fellow perfumista. Amazing stuff! Since the first sniff (and my wrist glued to my nose and within 20 minutes 😉 I decided to buy a FB. The only drawback – it seems that Bruno Fazzolari has no retailer in the EU so I have to order it from the US and the shipping costs are high (sigh…)
    Maybe I’ll order the sample set first.


    • Neva! I suspect you’ll love this one if you’re as big a white floral fan as I am. But yes, sample first is the way to go. Also check Essenza Nobile and First In Fragrance to see if maybe they’re carrying the range. god knows the shipping would be SO much less from Germany!! xoxo


      • I’ve checked them out already but unfortunately it’s hard to find US perfumers in Europe. For some time I have my eye on perfumes from Bruno Fazzolari, Charenton Macerations and Antonia’s Flowers but I still must find a way to try the complete ranges.
