It’s great for me!
MY BURBERRY. The latest chapter from MY BURBERRY fragrance story. Comes in EDT, this is a fresher interpretation of their iconic MY BURBERRY EDP. I admire their ad concept by brought together the two of the most famous supermodel in this world, for the first time ever in one ad. That’s right, folks. Both of them never been shot together before, and this was their first. Before I review the fragrance, and if you’re a fan of Kate & Cara like me, check out their video.
Created by Burberry’s Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey, working in collaboration with my favorite perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, MY BURBERRY is inspired by the iconic trench coat (that explain why Kate & Cara wore the Heritage coats in the ad). Imagine that trench coat, how classic, timeless, elegant, sophisticated, yet look very fresh.
Even though their notes are mostly floral like sweet pea, lemon flower, peonies, peach flower, freesia, and Centifolia Roses, this fragrance is very green in scent, IMHO. First spritz for me was very fresh (like fresh grass after the rain) and it dried down to a bit masculine twist (thanks to the musk as its’ base note). And I know it’s EDT, which supposed to be lighter and have less staying power than EDP, but MY BURBERRY EDT surprised me with their long lasting scent. A truly enjoyable fragrance to wear in this humid rainy season.
And the flacon. A gorgeous bottle indeed. Housed in the classic MY BURBERRY EDP bottle, I adore the black cap with the bold horn-finish stone and tiny twist of gabardine ribbon (look tough yet feminine). Actually it echoes the distinctive buttons and the hand-tied stone-coloured English-woven gabardine knot, to honour the fabric invented by Thomas Burberry over 100 years ago. I just love the story behind everything.
