The first time I wore My Burberry I felt like a
sophisticated lady. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t need a perfume to make me
feel sophisticated, beautiful, sexy, etc... but perfumes have that magic about
them, they create an illusion that is hard to resist.
The perfumer for My Burberry is French contemporary
perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. Francis is a well renown perfumer who has been
honored for his work by winning the Prix Francois Coty in 2001. A few of his
well-known olfactory masterpieces include; Le
Male for Jean Paul Gautier, Narcisso Rodriguez For Her, Aqua Di Palma Iris
Nobile and many more beautiful fragrances.
With My Burberry, The iconic Burberry house wanted to
capture and I quote " The iconic fragrance inspired by the trench
coat. The scent captures the essence of a London garden after the rain." Burberry.com fragrance description.
- Top: sweet pea,
geranium, golden quince, freesia.
- Base: patchouli,
damask, centifolia roses.
At first the scent
enveloped me in a bright very floral blanket. It isa strong floral, one you cannot miss, however the
beauty of this fragrance is that it manages to stay fresh and clean at the same
time. The note that stands out to me is the sweet pea with its floral sweet
scent, the bergamot keeps the floral note fresh. The sweetness does not last
very long on me, the fragrance very smoothly transcends into the floral notes
that geranium can entice you with, which
is the strongest note on me. Freesia takes over for the bergamot and keeps the
fragrance clean but at this point gives it that powdery note that balances out
the geranium. The golden quince keeps the fragrance light, bright with a hint of
fruits, but most importantly it keeps the fragrance modern. The dry down for me
was all about roses, soft, and feminine. After about 8-9 hours of wear the
perfume was still able to scent my body beautifully and with compliments from
my significant other. Any fragrance that can do that after so many hours of
wear, is a winner on my book.
After all is said
and done, You need to have a light hand with this fragrance, if not, it can be
one that can overwhelm you and those around you. That being said, it is still
soft andfeminine when applied with a
I personally love
this fragrance. It is one that I feel can be worn both in the office, daytime
wear, night time or a special occasion. It would make a great wedding scent if
you wanted to capture romance in a bottle, this is it. It will do well in all
of those areas and moments in life because it really those transcend and can
morph with the woman. My Burberry is a fragrance that is powerful enough to
take you back to the days where a perfume wore the woman, but in this case, the
woman wears the fragrance beautifully.
For me this
fragrance is a definite must, if you want to have a perfume that can only
enhance the woman you want to be on any given day.
