~~~Why Burberry Body~~~
I love perfume and some would say it's a major part of my life especially in comparison to the rest of my family and friends. I love to try new scents, purchase 'smellies' and generally smell good. Perfume makes me feel dressed; it gives me an extra boost of confidence and really can alter my moods. Perfume for some reason seems to smell different on me than on my friends, some say it's down to the body's natural pheromones and to really find a person's true scent (rather than just sniffing it out of the bottle) you need to try and let it settle before making a final decision.
Over the years I have tried many perfumes, at one point it seemed that all of the new released perfumes where starting to smell the same, cloying, chemical and wrong.
Rather than persisting in my high street scent a thon I turned to independent perfumers with much success. I vowed that I would no longer purchase branded perfumes after smelling the difference.
However, I received a tester of Burberry Body in the post, I'm not sure where the original tester vial came from but I left it sitting in my dressing table drawers un-touched. About a month ago I was cleaning it out and found the vial and squirted it on my wrists and they say the rest is history.
This scent is the epitome of femininity in my opinion. It's warm, smooth but delicate and feminine, like Cashmere with a hint of wood and white flowers in the spring.
Getting technical and I can tell you that the heart notes consist of rose absolute, iris and sandalwood with top notes of green absinthe, peach and freesia and base notes of woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla and sensual amber and musk. The notes that stand out for me personally are the woody cashmeran, green absinthe and hints of iris and freesia.
Each note is delicately held up by the next and nothing is too overpowering, normally fragrances with rose and vanilla for me tend to become cloying or take on a 'vintage' type scent and this definitely does not.
Burberry Body also has lasting power, I can spritz this in the morning and it lasts all day, I know others have said the same thing about this particular one but normally I find I have to re-apply a scent numerous times to benefit from the scent.
Burberry Body was originally produced with Britain in mind. It was supposed to be for the young adult consumers whereas Burberry Brit was more for teenagers (although I love that fragrance too).
Burberry have said
"All the modernity and heritage of this British brand today, reflecting all the facets that make up the Burberry world",
I don't feel it conveys this statement what so ever, after all the advertisements have a gorgeous model with nothing relating to Britain and the packaging also is very feminine and simplistic again not relating to Britain. I would 100% disagree that the product had anything British about.
Overall I love this fragrance and everything about it, the packaging is very sophisticated. The bottle is baton shaped and is made of thick glass it really oozes sophistication and the perfume inside has a delicate pink tone and is very feminine. The perfume bottle comes in a leather case and makes me feel proud to have it on show or within my handbag.
I can wear this from day to night and it really does give me a confidence boost. It feels grown up but not too grown up, playful but mature. (If that even makes sense) this fragrance feels like 'me' and has become a true skin scent.
Price wise I think it's worth it, this will last for a while as I only need to apply it once per day and I know I will use it all until it's completely finished. So I happily award this perfume the full five stars.
