The latest scent from Burberry is possibly their best to date. With Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne fronting the campaign (wearing the iconic coat that’s been adorned by everyone from fashionistas to soldiers for the last 100 years,) it’s no surprise that it’s causing quite the stir. The scent has been designed to capture the ‘fragrance of a London
garden after the rain,’ and is inspired by the trench that Burberry have
always been known for. Christopher Bailey comments: “My Burberry is the true embodiment of our brand, in scent, in design and in attitude. A fragrance that takes its lead from the iconic Burberry trench has to be outstanding in every way.” The bottle reflects the design of the trench coat, while the horn-finish cap is inspired by the coat’s buttons – it’s definitely the details that make this a bottle worth treasuring.
There’s no doubt this allows everyone to have a little bit of
the famous beige attire even if they can’t stretch to the £1000 price
tag of the real thing. I love the chunky button lid that’s even embossed
with the Burberry name on the reverse, making this much more than just
another perfume. It’s a statement piece and a classic bottle, much more
in keeping with the classic Burberry branding than previous fragrance
incarnations. The fragrance itself includes top notes of sweat pea and
bergamot, with a base of centifolia roses and patchouli. However, the
floral notes are somewhat muted and the result is extremely fresh while
still being classically elegant.
This, in my opinion, is the closest
Burberry have gotten to an iconic scent that will stand the test of
time. It lasts well on skin and evolves over the day to leave a scent
that I can only associate with brand new clothes – the feeling you get
when you wear something new. It’s perfect for daily wear and matches everything as well as a beige trench; it’s a staple that you’ll rely on and know it will smarten you up, no matter what’s going on underneath. Although the Burberry scents aren’t cheap, they’re definitely worth a little investment in my opinion; they always look, feel and smell a little more luxurious than your standard perfume and are definitely worth adding to your Christmas list.
