As much as I love perfume and trying out new things I think that every woman should have a signature scent. Something which embodies who they are and each time they go to wear it there is something that is reassuring and calming. They will have other perfumes for other occasions but they always keep coming back to that one signature scent. For me that perfume is Burberry Orginal.
It comes in a simple oval glass bottle which reveals the amber coloured perfume and has a silver tone top. It is very basic packaging but it has a kind of simplistic beauty but I have known more elaborate perfume bottles in my time!
When it comes to fragrances there are two thing I cannot stand - heady florals and sweet fruity notes. This perfume is the antithesis to these smells as it has musky warm notes of cedarwood, sandalwood and vanilla which are cut through with the sharp acidity of citrus and green apple. This makes for a warm, complex exuberant fragrance where you first hit with the acidity of the green apple and citrus before it rounds out and settles down to a deep almost woody finish. I think it is this combination which makes the scent so intriguing. As can be evidenced when I worked in a large department store customers frequently asked what I was wearing or complimented me on this perfume. It has a soft intensity by which I mean that it is noticeable when worn but not overpowering or intrusive.
As we all have different body chemistry and skin types how the product will smell as well as how long it will last will differ from person to person. I have found that this perfume lasts really well on me and if I use it in the morning then it still lingers in the evening although I do tend to top it up if I am going out.
The absolute crowning glory is that in terms of price and relative to other perfumes this fragrance is cheap! I often find it on offer in Boots or Superdrug - it is often left unloved at the bottom of the displays out of the way! It currently 15.50 for 30ml on Boots or you can find it on the internet at around £20 for 100ml. This perfume is very affordable but I would be willing to pay more for it as I love it so much.
As you can probably tell I love this perfume. It is soft and feminine whilst having that tough masculine edge of its woody notes. A timeless scent will work for any occasion or any time of day. This perfume is fulfils that as it is just as suitable for a night out as well as for use every day. I have three perfumes on rotation (which I love in different ways) but this one is definitely my favourite as it trumps all in terms of wearability, interest and scent. I will continue to purchase this (I have already re-purchased too many times to mention!) as I just love it so much.
I began wearing Burberry Perfume in 2003 and its one of my signature perfumes as I always wear it during the day and on evenings. Since then I have always worn Burberry Perfume and it has been one my favourite perfumes.This perfume was manufactured by Burberry Group. As Burberry is an iconic british luxary brand established in 1856, wearing this perfume also makes me feel like I am wearing a luxary perfume! In the past I have also worn other Burberry accessories with the check design such as the burberry handbags and scarves and I used to compliment it by spraying Burberry perfume on it.
The scent of Burberry Perfume and the bottle
Burberry Perfume is very unique and I am able to easily detect this fragrance if anyone is wearing it nearby! The Burberry Perfume smells fantastic and it really is a enchanting smell.The heart notes of Burberry Perfume are Jasmine, Sandalwood and Moss. The top notes are Bergamot, Tagete, Blackcurrant and Green apple. The base notes are Musk and Vanilla. The smells of Bergamot and Vanilla stand out most for me and I love this intense smell of Burberry Perfume. The staying power of Burberry Perfume is very good and a little goes a long way.
The bottle of Burberry Perfume is very strong and I have dropped it on the floor once and it remained undamaged. The bottle of Burberry Perfume is very original and there is nothing fancy about it but it serves its purpose. The cap is very strong and it remains tightly on the bottle and stops the fragrance from escaping from the bottle. The colour of the perfume is dark yellow and it sort of looks like whisky inside a mini bottle! As the bottle is clear the perfume can be seen through the bottle.
Burberry Perfume is very affordable and can be obtained at a good price, if you shop around for a bargain.
