Advantages: feminine and elegant scent, long lasting
I was lucky enough to obtain two samples of this Burberry Body perfume, one in a 5ml vial and the other in a 2ml vial. Before receiving the perfume I had no idea what it was like. The name of the perfume also did not seem to give much about it away and so when I recieved it I was unsure if it would even be one I would like.
On recieving the perfume it came placed in a rather thin cardboard box with the name of the perfume written in gold at the front. The back of the box just stated the ingredients and that it was made in France.
On opening the box I was really pleased with the bottle. It looked quite elegant and came in a see-through clear bottle, again with the letterings in gold as well as a gold and clear lid. Removing the lid is done easily just by pulling it up - or the 2ml vial just included the pump to dispense the spray.
Pulling off the lid to have a see what the scent was like I was pleasantly surprised. As far as first impressions go, the perfume certainly did smell nice! The notes are:
Natural Rose Absolute, Iris, Sandalwood
Green Absinthe, Peach, Freesia
Woody Cashmeran, Creamy Vanilla, Sensual Amber, Musk
When applied it does smell very feminine and elegant. It's floral but on a different scale - not too girly and sweet but subtly floral and noticeable. It lasts for hours with the scent recognisable, all the different notes seem to blend in perfectly that it makes it a pleasure to wear. It really would be one of my favourite perfumes especially to wear on dinners out, but the price tag is what dissapoints me.
A 60ml bottle will cost you £60 from the perfume shop and a 35ml bottle at £45. Although it really is a great scent and one I would love to wear, it's just not one I would purchase myself as I know of others i'd rather buy over it. It loses a star due to the price and so I give it 4/5 stars.. if it was a little cheaper than the more popular perfumes it would really be an ideal buy.
It really is a beautiful and elegant scent and perfect size for me to carry in my bag. I would certainly buy another bottle if I came across it on offer. I loved that the scent is long lasting and when applied to my wrist it was nice that you could still smell the scent and that it stayed with you throughout the day.
Thanks for reading
