My Review of Burberry Body
The first time I tested Burberry Body I was at airport. The enthusiastic assistant sprayed it all over my arm, gushing about the new fragrance launch by Burberry. I didn’t care much for it at the time, due to the sharp opening, and soon moved on to the next perfume on display. But once on flight, I was getting whiffs of this amazing smell, which took me some time to realize is me, thanks to Burberry Body. Lovely musky rose, dry, very dry. By the time I reached my destination, it was a must buy for me. I refused to wash my arm that night,lest this gets washed off, and kept sniffing till I dozed off :P.
A friend of mine describes Burberry Body like chocolate and rose powder thrown on a desert, though chocolate is not a listed note, and I don’t get any chocolate out of it.
Burberry Body is available in various concentrations, edt, edp, rose gold, intense etc, but by far EDP is my favourite of all. It is extremely long lasting, with a heavy sillage. It will last on clothes for many many days, and will scent your entire wardrobe if a jacket sprayed with it is kept back to hang. It will announce your presence to everyone, and should not be overdone. Perfect for evening and night wear, and can get a bit heavy during the hot days. For me, this is a special occasion scent, when you want to get noticed, because that you certainly will be.
Lovely multifaceted glass bottle, a bit too tall, and is best kept sideways. It is easily available at all the shops. Preferably purchase it online, Burberry Body is frequently on discount.
Will I recommend it: Yes
Price: Approx INR 4700 for 60 ml, and INR 5600 for 85 ml
