I’ve been using Burberry Brit for YEARS, so I guess it’s about time that I gave it a review. It was the first premium fragrance that I bought for myself, so a special place in my heart it will always have. Really, I do get sentimental about the dumbest things.
Its notes include: Italian Lime, Icy Pear, Green Almond, White Peony, Sugared Almonds, Amber, Mahogany, Vanilla, Tonka Bean. You can definitely smell the Amber most right after you put some on, but the scent fades to a more subtle warm Vanilla with the slightest hint of floral notes and spice making Burberry Brit the perfect scent for a cold Fall or Winter day (or night! Rawwwrrr!!). Brit has taken the old standard classic Oriental fragrance and put a modern twist on it. Love!
I have read a couple of complaints on Sephora.com that this perfume didn’t last long enough for them (about 3-4 hours), but I’d say that I get at least 5-6 hours of wear, on average.
As for the price, I think I got this bottle for $60-70 CAD a couple of years ago, but my memory’s totally rusty. On Sephora.com, it is priced at $62 USD for a 1.07 oz bottle. I’m on my second bottle and can definitely see myself buying another bottle once I run out.
Now I’m curious about everyone else’s first major perfume purchase!
