Burberry My Burberry Eau De Parfum

My Burberry takes its name from the affectionate way in which people refer to their Burberry trench coats. The campaign features Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne wearing these trench coats under the creative direction of Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey.

"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."
Christopher Bailey

Name: Burberry My Burberry Eau de Parfum
Price: RM 465 for 90 ml
Made in: France

The Fragrance
The scent encapsulates the smell of walks along an English garden: the fresh rain-tipped earth, the warmth from the sunshine peeking through the clouds combined with flowers in full bloom.

Noticed the emphasis on English? Well, that is because the fragrance matches someplace cooler. To be fair, any garden in the world will do as long as it has spring and autumn seasons. The sensorial experience that I painted doesn't seem as vivid in a warm climate. Then again, that could be me just being finicky, haha!

◆ Top notes: Sweet Pea, Bergamot
◆ Heart notes: Geranium, Golden Quince, Freesia
◆ Base notes: Damask Rose, Centifolia Rose, Patchouli

My Burberry easily brings me from day to night but my favourite time to mist it is before I cop some z's. It stays on until I roll out of bed in the morning - pretty impressive considering I tend to flail about when I sleep. If this can't be taken as a testament to its longevity, then I don't know what can.

I feel like a million dollars the moment I spritz some on. How did Burberry do it? Or is magic afoot? It will be pretty hard for a fragrance to kick it off its current standing in my heart!

The Flacon
The entirety of the bottle reflects the details of the Burberry trench coat: the shape of the horn-finish cap (buttons on the coat), the fabric of the hand-tied knot (English-woven gabardine) right down to the colour of the precious liquid (signature honey shade).

The same meticulous detailing went into the box as well, where the gold lined interior is embossed with the iconic Burberry check design.
