The fragrance bottle’s a miniature of its larger-sized siblings! Very pretty multi-faceted glass bottle with a rose gold coloured embossed check lid, synonymous with the brand’s famous check design!
On a random note, I love the background music accompanying the presentation of the fragrance on their website. Check it out!!
It never fails to tickle me as the song’s all about the wine itself hehe!
So Burberry says this is an ‘effortlessly sensual feminine fragrance’ with green absinthe, peach and freesia for top notes; rose absolute, iris and warm sandalwood as its heart notes and woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, amber and musk as its base notes.
I’m not very good at describing smells but the minute I applied this onto my skin I could smell sandalwood, which took me aback for a bit as I’m no fan of sandalwood. After a couple of minutes I took another whiff and the scent changed completely!
This fragrance has a very sophisticated scent! I could smell floral notes in it (none of your Marc Jacobs Daisy flowery smells) but how do I put it… Hmm there’s warmth to this fragrance unlike some of the sickly sweet-smelling perfumes out there. I couldn’t really smell absinthe (not that I want to anyway) but you get a whiff of all the other ingredients as the day goes on!
I’m not much of a fragrance person as I usually forget to apply perfume before leaving the house but I think this may have changed my mind as I kept sniffing at my wrists throughout the day, prompting a colleague of mine to say
‘You haven’t got anything illegal on your wrists, have you? You’ve been sniffing at them all day!’
Did you apply for a sample? Have you received yours yet? =p
Thank you, Burberry! You’ve truly made my day! =)
