Burberry is, without a doubt, a brand that became synonymous with elegance and luxury. You may or may not like their sense of fashion, but one thing is sure: the creations will not leave you indifferent. And for those of you, like myself, that might not afford buying something from Burberry (except on special occasions!), there’s always the opportunity of buying their fragrances, since there is no better way to appreciate the essence and spirit of this brand (I remember acquiring 10 years ago, during the sales season, a Burberry sweater made from wool, which might have been in mint condition today, if the moths wouldn’t find it irresistible).
With respect to the perfumes, you are probably aware (from what you might have read so far) that I did my fair share of testing among all the releases, and from what I noticed until present time there is one that reflects my idea of pure elegance in the masculine department. Arrived on the market in 1995, Burberry for Men is actually the third masculine scent from the British brand, following the steps of 1981’s Burberrys and 1991’s Society. Released in the same year as its feminine counterpart, Burberry for Men is a special woody aromatic that impresses you from the very beginning.
This fragrance represents the type of energetic and fresh perfume, appropriate for almost any occasions. In the first couple of minutes after spraying the wrist with it, you will be able to detect a refreshing accord of bergamot, mixed with lavender for consistency (the other top notes are thyme and fresh mint). Then, in approximately fifteen minutes, the setting becomes more profound, due to the vitally conferred by an aroma of sandalwood, coupled with moss and geranium. The final part is also the warmest and more personal, hence the woody accords (cedar woods), juxtaposed to a friendly note of amber.
The flacon that holds Burberry for Men represents pure elegance at its best, in which the transparent glass with classic shapes reveals a golden hue liquid, while being topped by a silver stopper that renders class. Overall, this is one of the Burberry classics and that says is all.
