Burberry has released a new scent called My Burberry. I happened upon it a couple of weeks ago when I was perusing Nordstrom.
First off, let’s talk about that bottle. Even if it didn’t smell good, I would not mind seeing this gorgeous bottle sitting on my vanity. The cap has a beautiful tortoise shell look (after reading the official description, Burberry say the cap has a horn-finish, which is to reflect the buttons they use on their trenches.) and a cute bow to seal in the femininity. The bottle is elegant, and something only a high end brand could give us.
I was able to spritz some of this liquid gold on my wrist and let it settle, and was blown away by how light it smelled. I am really into floral scents and this gave me that without being too over powering or sweet. Many floral perfumes tend to lean toward a more “mature” scent, and My Burberry did not smell that way at all.
Description from Burberry.com:
Inspired by the trench coat and its heritage of British design and craftsmanship, My Burberry captures the fragrance of a London garden after the rain
The scent is a contemporary British grand floral
Top notes of sweet pea and bergamot fuse with a geranium leaf, golden quince and freesia heart, rounded out with a base of patchouli and rain-tipped damask and centifolia roses
The bottle reflects iconic details of the trench coat: a bold horn-finish cap echoes its distinctive buttons and the hand-tied bow is English-woven gabardine, honouring the fabric invented by Thomas Burberry over 100 years ago
There are a total of 6 items/sizes in the My Burberry collection.
