There are times when you realize that you were too distracted by your quest for interesting perfumes, in such a way that made you disregard the fragrance which was all the time in front of you. A perfect example of this kind is Burberry Brit, my most recent discovery in the category of beguiling feminine fragrances.
Brit was introduced in 2003 as a floral fruity developed by perfumer Nathalie Gracia-Cetto and in 2004 was receiving the FiFi Award in the category “Women’s Fragrance of the Year – Luxe”. Perhaps this also a reason due to which it enjoyed one of the best selling figures in Burberry’s history, however one fact remains: you will asses its captivating character from the first whiff.
The detailed story of my finding began one month ago, when my wife receive a sample of Burberry Brit, while we were in our preferred Sephora store, shopping for a new foundation. I must confess that I noticed Burberry Brit in the past, while browsing the perfume shelves however it did not urge me to ask my wife to test.
As a result, having the set prepared, I started to analyze this Burberry fragrance. The opening in Brit is mixing pungent notes of icy pear, green almond and Italian lime. Then, after no more than 10 minutes the perfume shifts into the mid development phase, in which vanilla, although not listed in the heart notes, makes perceivable its presence. The official notes for this phase encompass sugar almonds and white peony and at the time it dries down, you will be able to detect the warm and personal aroma of amber, juxtaposed to an incredible powerful note of mahogany.
Brit has great persistence and the flacon that holds the fragrance is made of opaque glass, painted in Burberry’s classic check pattern, while exhibiting a black and red color scheme and a rectangular shape. The video commercial features British models Emma McLaren and Tom Guinness. If prior to sampling Brit I was not sure about my favorite Burberry scent, now I can indubitably tell you that this is Burberry Brit and, of course, let’s not forget its masculine version, Burberry Brit for Men.
