I was given this for my most recent birthday as a gift from a friend. I wouldn't necessarily class myself as a perfume person but I do like to receive it as a gift because it can be quite expensive to buy.
This Burberry perfume comes in a beautiful glass bottle. The glass is cut into a prism shape which means that when the light hits it, it catches all the different angles and just looks incredibly beautiful. There is also a clear plastic prism style lid which has a gold insert inside to give that added bit of glamour. The perfume has a light pinky colour to it and when this combines with the gold the overall look is really quite stunning.
The bottle is quite long and narrow, but has a beautiful weighty feeling to it because of the glass which speaks of luxury. This is certainly an indulgent perfume and for any men out there probably the perfect gift for the wife/girlfriend/sister/mother for Christmas.
The perfume itself has a beautiful fresh, flowery smell to it. It has quite a strong citrus note to it when you first apply it which smells super fresh and clean. As the perfume mellows you get beautiful deep floral notes which smell wonderful and beyond this a sort of musky smell which lasts for ages.
This perfume has such a classic, elegant smell that I think it definitely suits a wide range of ages. I think it is just about edgy enough to be great for a young audience and has enough of a classic scent to be perfect for the older lady too. This is definitely a perfume I could see myself wearing well into old age.
I tend to wear this in the day but because of the beautiful musky notes it would definitely be an appropriate evening perfume too. It does feel light and fresh so is nice for summer and those sunnier days we get. I do also think, though, that the warmth and depth from the florals and musk make it a nice uplifting winter scent too. So really it's a yearly perfume.
The biggest negative for this perfume then has to be the price which usually exceeds £35 for only a 50ml bottle. I can't say, however much I like the scent, that I would pay this much for it. It is a wonderful luxury gift though and the perfect thing for birthdays or other special events.
Overall then it is a pricey perfume but well worth the investment as a gift for someone. I love receiving it and I love wearing it even more.
