Burberry Touch is quite an unusual scent. For me it was not an instand "fall in love with it" kind of smell but I came to appreciate the fragrance after applying it several times. I was lucky enough to have my uncle spend some loyalty points on this perfume for me so I had never smelt it before receiving it.
It was launched by the legendary House of Burberry in 2000 so it has been around for a while although I feel its not as popular as it should be really and therefore I havn't seen it as wideley available as some other Burberry perfumes. If you are struggling to find it I would suggest a quick search online will set you on the right track quickly.
The bottle has a simple yet classy look to it. It is a sort of hourglass shape with an oversized wooden lid. The burberry logo is printed on the glass part of the bottle. The box has the tartan style pattern in dusky colours.
The fragrance is somewhat woody and earthy. It has a oriental style that is quite gentle and sophisticated. It has base notes of vanilla which I adore. Other base notes are oakmoss (which I am not too familiar withh and cedar, floral mid notes and rose and citrus top notes. To me this perfume appeals for its timeless classy scent. I would suggest this for ages twenty five and over, whilst its feminine its not a girlish perfume at all but more sophisticated and classic. Its a perfume that I would buy again. I would wear it autumn and winter and usually in the daytime for work, meetings, days out.
Quick tip: apply your perfume to the pulse points of your body (wrists, behind the ear, crease in the arm and base of the throat) as these are the places that release heat which warms the scent and releases the fragrance.

A few years ago I received a Burberry scarf for Christmas and I was thrilled as I had always wanted one but it wasn't something I would have ever bought myself! When I unravelled the scarf I was shocked to find a bottle of perfume hidden inside which was a lovely surprise. The perfume was Burberry Touch For Women. I had seen this fragrance for sale but I hadn't actually ever smelt it so I had no idea what kind of scent to expect.
Burberry Touch comes in a cardboard box with the familiar Burberry check but in a pastel colour rather than the brown - it is cream/beige with some grey and pink check. The Burberry name and perfume name is in the centre of the front of the box in bold black capital letters but small letter so it is quite discreet in a sense. The box is fastened in an unusual way, you fold the lid down and attached is a small piece of string which you wrap around a cardboard circle on the front of the box. I admit at first I fastened it the correct way, but after a while I didn't bother as it is a little pointless and annoying!
The bottle is a chunky conical shape but doesn't come to a point at the top as the lid is also the same shape and so when put together it makes a sort of I><I shape (I hope that makes sense as I can't think of the word!) but slightly more rounded. The bottle itself is clear which is something that I really prefer in a perfume as you can see the exact amount left in there! The name of the perfume appears on the front of the bottle just as it does on the box.
Burberry touch is described as a creamy floral scent which is both modern and timeless. This fragrance combines both fruits and flowers which together make a warm scent.
Top notes: Orange, Blackberry, Cranberry, Rose
Heart notes: Jasmine, Lily, Tuberose, Raspberry
Base notes: Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Green Almond, Cedar
I would personally say this scent is a strange one, I would possibly describe it as a musky one which isn't my kind of thing in all honesty and I would only ever wear this on a night out as I think it is too strong and heavy to wear during the day. I am really undecided over whether I actually like this perfume or not, on one occasion I wore it I loved it, on another I hated it! My personal opinion is that this is a perfume I would only wear as a last resort as it in no way competes with my favourites and it isn't one that I would ever go out and buy.
Would I recommend this fragrance? Well probably not. As I say it is quite musky and therefore a little limited for times to wear it. The bottle is really quite chunky and heavy so it certainly isn't one that you could pop in your handbag when going out (unless you have a large bag!)
Burberry Touch is available in many high street retailers as well as many online retailers and it comes in 30ml and 50ml borrles. The prices really vary depending on where you purchase from, you can find it online for around £15 but if you go direct to Burberry it will set you back £60!! I would say shop around for sure on this one!
Thank you for reading my review :)
This is a very good fragrance to buy as a gift. The scent is quite light and classic, and not too sweet. It is a great daytime or early evening fragrance and everyone seems to find it pleasant and not too overpowering. If you are not entirely sure what kind of fragrance your friend/partner will like, then this would be a good choice.
The packaging is excellent: a traditional Burberry check in light brown with a neat Japanese-style tie fitting that gives it an international twist. The bottle is very solid and minimalist in design, with a heavy dark cap. Not too fussy and girlie, and so ideal for a more serious person who appreciates quality rather than gimmicky bottles.
The price for a large bottle at just over £35 in an airport is reasonable for a fragrance of this quality.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and can confirm that it was a super gift idea, very well received and now much used by its owner.
Burberry Touch for Women
I have not been using this very long and I am still a bit undecided on this fragrance, as it is a bit floral but it also has a little bit of a musky woody scent to it as well. I don't wear this in the daytime as I think it is a bit too musky but for the evening it is quite nice.
Firstly I am not really too keen on the packaging/bottle design, to me it is a bit too 'clunky' and heavy and the bottle is a bit heavy so I would not take it on my holiday this summer. I have the 50ml version and I think I bought it at the airport when coming back home last year, but I have only just started using it now.
But I can't remember how much I payed (I think it was like 60 euros for two fragrances), but anyway I think it is too musky for day time, but other people may disagree. You can buy the 30ml version from boots but not the 50ml versions and it is £27. You may be able to buy it cheaper off ebay or amazon.
The lighter/fruity tones are scents of oranges, jasmine, rose oil, blackcurrant and lilly and the musky base notes are of cedarwood, oakmoss and vanilla. Over all the scents work well together in my opinion but like I said for me it is a bit too musky/woody for daytime wear but I would wear it of an evening.
*nice for evening wear but for me it is too musky for daywear
*Not too keen on the bottle design it is a bit too heavy and clunky for me
*Nice as a gift as my mum really likes this but everyone is different
*Nice floral lighter notes
*Light on the skin
*Not too overpowering
*Not very expensive - at boots it is £27 for 30ml
*30ml and 50ml versions
*They also make a male version which is nice as well
Thank you for reading my review
This is one of my favourite perfumes. The bottle is sleek thick glass and has a trendy thick wooden top. My partner brought me this for christmas and it is not something that I would have picked my self. The scent is quite casual and something that you would probably wear shopping on a saturday daytime rather than to dinner on a saturday night. However it is very feminine and slightly oriental. Again the price of this perfume is also rather satisfactory, 100ml bottles are around £25 and last for ages. The fragrance is very long lasting with no need to reapply throughout the day. Burberry Touch for Women as suggested in the name is very grown up, I think any woman would be delighted to recieve this as a gift, or it is a great pick me up if you want to spend some of your hard earned cash on yourself.
Eau De Parfum Burberry Touch is classified as a refreshing, gentle, oriental fragrance / This feminine scent possesses a blend of citrus and rose top notes, with floral mid notes and base notes of vanilla, oakmoss and cedar / It is recommended for casual wear.
