BODY - By Burberry

What they say:

"... is the most exciting launch that we have ever created and captures the iconic spirit of the brand today in a striking and sensual way." (Christopher Bailey)

The scent:

Top notes are a mix of green absinthe, peach and freesia.

The heart is made up of roses and iris.

There is also a light infusion of sandalwood, cashmerean, musk, amber and vanilla!

What I think:

Above are pictures of my sample, sent by post not too long ago. I think if you visit their facebook page you can still order one!

My initial reaction was, the perfume is very much a mature and sophisticated scent. That's not to say it's an overly musky and floraly scent, but it is definitely a powerful scent perhaps women would wear rather than teens.

Once the topnotes sink in, the basenotes release as I said sandalwood and amber which gives the perfume a certain edge others do not have. If you prefer fruity perfumes (Escada) or floraly scents (Marc Jacobs) this may not be the one for you, as it has a distinct mix of both rather than leaning to one. But if you are looking for a new, fresh signature scent I would definitely recommend this!

If you try it out, let me know what you think.

  15. great blog *

  16. Huh, may check it out...sounds like something I might love...I picked you for this, by the way...hope you don't mind:


  17. I also received a sample a few weeks ago.

    I think the foundation is great. But I do feel that it is a bit too heavy for me (I like your term "mature").

    If they take it down a notch, I think it would work best! But on the other hand, I am more like a fruity / floral gal :)

  18. I spend so much of my time at perfume shops and I'm addicted to buying as many as I can get my hands on! I smelled this one the other day and loved it :)! It's so mysterious and I just melt when I smell it. Great post!
