Great winter fragrance. I bought a duty free EDT in Heathrow Airport. I love England, so this has a lot of memories attached to it- reminds of looking up at Big Ben on a foggy London day! It smells very mysterious and a little like lime.
I smell sugared almonds and a lot of lime. It smells kind of like a man's cologne or aftershave but I still like it. They should of said that it was unisex.
Very spicy and aromatic. I feel extremely noticable when I wear this and that kind of makes me uncomfortable.
I first smelled this perfume on my best friend and thought it was to die for. Once she stopped wearing it and I figured she wouldn't mind if I bought it, I found a really small bottle for dirt cheap in New York City. I wore it every day and absolutely loved it. My mom bought me a new (much bigger) bottle for Christmas, and I'm still wearing it all the time. Now, I have about 10 bottles of 1/4-used perfumes that I stopped wearing because after a month or two, I got tired of the scent, but Burberry Brit was totally different. It goes on strong at first, but shortly thereafter it becomes this light, classy, grown-up vanilla scent. It's perfect for all times/events/etc., and the only reason I wouldn't give it 5 lippies is that it's staying power isn't extraordinary if you're not spraying a lot of it on at once.
At first it smells more citrusy, not as sweet, than it became overly sweet. it smells like vanilla with almonds. A nice cold weather perfume. Not too special though.
The edt has a little citrus, while the edp has an amber base. I much prefer the edp. Sugared almonds and vanilla for a couple of hours. Then, verrrrry light sugared almonds and vanilla for a couple more. Nice, pretty, a fragrance that you could wear pretty much anywhere without being worried that you'd offend.
I received this in EDP form as a gift, and I was excited to try it because it *sounded* right up my alley. I love scents with some vanilla in them. Anyway, upon spraying this, I was overwhelmed by the lime/citrus note and sugary sweetness. The drydown was okay and less lime-y but I prefer sexy deep, ambery caramel vanilla scents, as opposed to blah lime-frosted sugar cookie vanilla scents. Out of all the Burberry scents, the original Brit is my least favorite, and Brit Gold and Touch are my favorites.
A lesson learned. Try before you buy. (edp) I purchases this after reading the great reviews..applied it and wore it one day to work.....and it kinda never dried down on me! The vanilla, almond, sweet high notes,bothered my stomach all day. I returned it the next day. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it was less sweet, and the vanilla was less strong, the amber musky notes I enjoyed, but need the other notes more toned down. Please email me if you know of another frag that i can try with these attributes.
Really very nice one! there are not usually many fragrances that I like, but this one is really beautiful! It makes me wanna EAT it :-)
This is a wonderful scent. There are many like it but this is truly high class. Definitely something for a night out or a hot date.
