Burberry Body

 Finally I am blogging about my beloved Burberry Body perfume, I've been putting this off for months due to my lack of experience in writing perfume reviews. I mean I find it difficult to describe a perfume, especially since perfumes  smell different on everyone.
 However I shall give this my best shot.

I have to admit I am a big Rosie Huntington Whiteley fan, she's gorgeous, sexy and seems down to earth. She doesn't even seem to try to be sexy, she just is. Everything about her screams SEXY! The Lips, The Hair and Those Legs.

When I found out this perfume was coming out many months ago now, I sincerely hoped I'd like it. Before it actually came out Burberry was giving away free samples so I sent off for one and waited eagerly for it to arrive. When it came I received a nice sized sample and a postcard with RHW's campaign picture on. 
So for the perfume the notes include absinthe, peach, freesia, rose absolute, iris, sandalwood, cashmeran, vanilla, amber and musk.
For me this scent is warm, sensual and creamy. 
At first I smell a slight chypre, but it disappears  quickly and settles into a sexy vanilla (not sweet sickly, gourmet vanilla), with sandalwood and amber.
It has great staying power and I seem to receive compliments on it several hours after spraying it on, saying that though it is not at all overpowering.
The bottle itself is a little tower of art, its sleek and feels expensive and looks great on the dressing table, however it is a little heavy to carry around.

I paid £45 for a 35ml bottle, which is quite steep I guess, but in my opinion definitely worth it, so worth it that I bought the box set :) Which contains a 85ml bottle of Eau De Parfum spray and an 85ml bottle of Body Milk in a spray container which is super handy.

Now I just wish I had a man to smell it on me, Ha!


  1. It's great that it has a long lasting power. A creamy smelling perfume would be nice to try out.
