perfume reviews | burberry london

Burberry London is my go-to perfume. It’s appropriate for day or evening because it’s soft yet inviting—fine for a date night or just another day at the office. Every time I wear Burberry London, my good friend and coworker Gina raves about what I’m wearing (I’m sure she’s been bugging her husband about picking up a bottle for her, too!).

Burberry London

I'll be due for another bottle of Burberry London soon.

Burberry London is a lighter perfume that incorporates honeysuckle, clementine and rose for a clean, floral fragrance that is soft and seductive.  It does have dryer touches of sandalwood (mama would be impressed) and patchouli (appeasing my inner hippie again!) to round out the floral notes. I’d describe Burberry London as a little more musky than floral—completely sexy but not overpowering—and it’s supposed to capture the essence of bustling London. (I’ve never been, so I’ll just trust that London is sexy but not overpowering.)

I’ve tried the regular Burberry perfume before, and it’s just not as appealing to me.  While Burberry still has notes of sandalwood, vanilla and musk, it’s a little too fruity for me (it has traces of green apple, peach and marigold). Burberry London suits my nose a little better, but I’m interested to sample Burberry Touch and Burberry Brit…we’ll see. I have so many new fragrances on my to-buy list, it’s a little obnoxious. What fragrances are on your list? What do you wear every day? Tell me about it in the comments section.

    I wore Burberry Touch for a while when I was wearing sweeter scents. Along with Tommy Bahama for women. Both have creamy, sugary dry downs.

    Right now the only sweet scent I own is Pink Sugar, which makes an appearance every now and again when I need to lighten up. It looks really ditzy next to my “serious” perfumes, but I can’t help it – it smells so good!
