Though this is not a new fragrance, My Burberry EDT*(90mL/$80.00 CDN) is a lighter, fresher version of My Burberry EDP. Created by CEO and CCO of Burberry, Christopher Bailey and world-renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdijian, My Burberry EDT is brighter, happier and a scent that I found suited me more on a day-to-day basis.
At first glance, I found the bottle a bit bulky and difficult to hold, but once I was romanced by the story of bottle, I was sold. Isn't that always the case with fragrances? Burberry is most known for their iconic trench coat. I may not own one, but oddly enough my husband does! The bottle captures the elements we know best, like the stone-finished cap which echo the distinctive trench coat buttons, and the hand-tied gabardine knot honoring the fabric created over a century ago by Thomas Burberry.
My Burberry EDT is a described as a "bright, grand floral" with top notes of sweet pea and lemon flower, heart notes of peonies, peach flower and freesia and base notes of Damask rose, white moss and musk. This is by far the most floral scent I have ever worn AND liked! So many florals have fallen, but I consistently wore this over the holiday season and its slightly sweet beginnings to its musky rose dry-down. Peonies tend to be a bit overwhelming at times, but something about having it as a heart note seemed to temper its strength.
The freshness of My Burberry EDT makes it a scent that can be worn all year and by any woman. I don't feel too old or young when I am wearing this, but instead comfortable in my own skin doing anything from running in the street to going out for date night. A truly adaptable scent.
My Burberry is available at all Burberry counters.
