Burberry London Women Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Beautiful scent
London for Women, by Burberry has been around for a while now. Its popularity remains as it is a very refreshing fragrance, which is superb for all occassions.
The best way to describe this packaging is medium. Its medium in height, medium in width and medium in length. The packaging is very square. The box has the standard Burberry design on it, with baige and grey stripes running down the box and a single red line running from left to right. At the centre of the box is the Burberry logo, in the standard Burberry text. Under the logo is the name of this fragrance, London. Personally I am not a massive fan of the box design. It doesn't make me want to go over to the fragrance and pick it up. Its very unappealing.
When you remove the bottle from the packaging the first thing that'll strike you is how similar it looks to the packaging. Its exactly the same design, with the baige and grey stripes running from top to bottom and a single red line running from left to right. Again I don't find this particularly appealing.
The cap is easy to remove. Simply pull at the top and it comes off. I much prefer this release mechanism to a screw cap.
I believe the intention was to capture the smell of London parks in early spring. And to me, being from London, it has got it spot on. The notes of honeysuckle gives this fragrance its sweetness, while middle notes of jasmine, rose and the Tahitian Tiare flower give it a very floral smell. It reall is a beautiful scent, one which I am happy to promote.
~~WHEN TO WEAR~~
You'll enjoy this fragrance so much that you'll want to wear it to work and also on nights out. My advice would be to save it for special occassions and not over familiarise yourself with it. That'll also help you from having to spend £30 per month on a new 50ml bottle.
This truely is a spring time perfume. Get it for Christmas and keep it bottled up for three or four months.
I award this fragrance five out of five Dooyoo stars.
