This was given to me as a gift and I absolutely love it! Very unique scent, and it lasts all day on my skin. Classy bottle too. I find its packaging convenient because I can easily slip it in my bag unlike other bottles that are way too wide and bulky. I wouldn't purchase the same product though because I'd like to try a new scent every now and then.

I have received a generous sample of this and while I normally love Burberry fragrances but this one is bleh... It just has too many things going on at once. Sweet, bitter, spicy, fresh... Make up your mind already! It really is like I sprayed on multiple scents at once, not a good thing! Really a disappointment, I was expecting something simpler for a fragrance named Body. Ended up scrubbing it off, I got a real headache out of it :(...

I like this perfume even though I said I wouldn't buy it again. It is very unique and everything I initially smell it I love it. However, the only reason I wouldn't buy it again is bc after the dry down I sometimes smell a "bug spray" chemically whiff. This happened when I tried it out at Sephora but I thought maybe it was the mixture of the other perfume I had put on earlier in the day. Regardless, it might just be my body chemistry! It's def a unique smell and it smells good. I think I like Burberry Brit better; it's a little deeper. Both good fragrances!

Cheap smelling? Tide with Baby Powder?! I just can't believe these bad reviews of this beautiful fragrance! "Body" is my third Burberry scent and I absolutely LOVE it. It has a very unique, sophisticated scent that lasts all day. I have been asked by strangers several times what perfume I'm wearing, told it smells so good. I also wear and love Burberry London and The Beat. Brit and Brit Sheer are too "young" for my taste. Getting back to Body, I find it a delightful change from the new, sweet, candy-smelling fragrances that are everywhere now..

I really think Burberry hit it out of the park with this one. Ive been trying to find a signature perfume, and I found it in this. It is sweet at first but has a nice spiciness to it that gives it some interest. The other sweet smelling fragrances ive tried were just too overwhelmingly sweet, and this to me is just perfect. It has a hint of musk but is still young and classic. I actually think this could work for any age, whereas the original burberry is a little younger, and london is geared toward older women. I cant get enough of this and love to layer with the lotion!

This will be my next perfumebuy. I tried it on, and I was hooked. It has the same qualities as my other favourite perfums, such as Eternity (CK), Elysium (Clarins) and Allure (Chanel). It enwraps your body in a white, powdery, soft, elegant scent, that is at one time fresh and sensual, not too distinkt (yet in no way indifferent). Stays a long time and keeps the same scent all day long. LOVE IT!

This is great I am surprised at negative reviews - yes it is a bit sharp at first but in a refreshing way and then is soft and creamy and very clean smelling in a luxurious sensual clean little bit of spice - it also lasts for hours on my skin which is rare with many new fragrances I love it and would like to own more than the mini bottle I have

I purchased this scent this spring but I didn't wear it the whole summer because for me, this is a fall-winter scent, so now's the time to wear it. It's warm, clean, sophisticated and very feminine. I couldn't imagine this scent on someone younger than 27-28, no offense.
It does have a luxurious vibe, but in a good way. Whenever I wear this, it even affects the way I dress, I chose feminine and more elegant outfits for this perfume.
It is pricey but it's an investment just like a Burberry trenchcoat :)

I don't understand why this perfume hasn't gotten higher marks, it's a beautiful, rich, luxurious and sensual scent. I tried it on at the perfume counter and I instantly fell in love with the smell! And I was surprised at how long the scent lasted on my skin. Normally I have to respray throughout the day to get any lasting power with my usual perfumes, but this actually lasted me well into the evening. I also noticed that the scent seemed to change throughout the day and I could notice a sweeter, almost a vanilla like scent, but not sickly sweet or overbearing. I literally could not stop smelling my arm. lol. To those who say they don't like it, I love this perfume and I'd gladly take any unused bottles off your hands, lol. It's only downfall is it's price! It's so expensive!

I love love love this perfume!
When I went looking for another scent, I wanted something that wasn't too sweet. So many perfumes out nowadays are like cotton candy...not that I have a problem with that, but I already have two 'sweet' perfumes. I'd seen this advertised in a magazine and gave it a whiff when I went shopping. Amazing. When I was in Boots, they were doing an offer for a free bottle of the lotion when you bought a bottle of the perfume and that sealed the deal for me. Defininately my everyday scent. I only wish they'd come out with a shower gel!

This is an interesting one. I normally don't like Burberry scents, so I had to try this one. And here is what's important: The EdP smells completely different to the EdT. I tried both at the same time and in the beginning they smell quite the same. But the drydown is such a difference. While the EdP really develops devine, sweet, soft elegant after 2 hours, the EdT turns out totally different like male sweat, with something sharp and unpleasant in it, like a sweaty guy with a very cheap cologne. So yes, this is a very nice scent, but only the EdP.

Body’s sillage is quite nice – cool, crisp orchid and soap – but nose-to-wrist, it’s harsh and nostril-burning. What I like about it is that it mimics freshly laundered clothes, like the ‘Clean’ range of scents (actually, this does remind me of the ‘Fresh Laundry’ scent in said line), but that’s also what doesn’t work about it – the chemical, synthetic high-pitched buzzines. I’m surprised Burberry gave this the huge launch they did, calling it an embodiment of their brand or somesuch. I just don’t see it as being a particularly innovative or stylish fragrance.

I love this scent, it feels like a classy cuddly blanket, it's smells fresh and warm all at the same time. It's the only fragrance that every time I wear I'll get told I smell amazing and asked what it is by both men and women, it is a very strong scent so I rocommend one spray, more will become to much I feel. This is fast becoming my winter staple, I love love love it!

This fragrance does not smell any good. I tried it couple of times (love the bottle) but hate the fragrance. My mom had little mixed feelings, she thought she likes it for a moment (she received it as a gift soom after) and then realized she does not like it anymore. Now she has full, unopened bottle, that she does not use/like. Too bad, in Europe is not such a great return policy as in US/Canada.

I don't understand why the reviews for this perfume is so low. I remember I really wanted to smell this and ordered a sample but it never came in the mail so I was quite disappointed. Then I remember smelling this on my sister and I didn't know it was this at the time. When she told me I was like mm! So I went to sephora and got a sample and began wearing it. And I love it. I has a beautiful musky florally scent almost and it's such a wearable scent. It is more of a mature scent and I always lean toward older styles with clothing and like everything. I really enjoy this overall and would buy it again. The only reason I took off 1 lippie for packaging was because it's functional but I would have preferred a prettier design :P
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
I really like the packaging, but the scent is just not for me. This is just too sweet, and typically I like sweet scents. I think, though, that Burberry Perfume just isn't for me. I tried Burberry Summer last year, which at first I loved, but that eventually gave me headaches. I'd like to find a perfume that smells good, and doesn't break the bank. Thank goodness for being able to test out the scents before buying, which is what i did. I would not buy this!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is a nice classy scent but it is a little heavy for me. Packaging is nice but I wouldn't buy again.

I don't understand all the negative reviews on this perfume. It smells absolutely amazing! It's great for any time of day or night. On me, it started out as a pleasant floral kind of scent. I admit that at first it can be overpowering, especially if you spray too much. But it dries down to be more subtle. After a while it transformed into a nice musky vanilla scent. There were other scents in between, but I'm not the best at describing them. It also lasted a long time. Twelve hours before it was completely gone. I sampled this on two different occasions to make sure. This is just a nice sweet yet sophisticated perfume.

I usually do not like Burberry fragrances because they generally are too strong on me. I am very headache sensitive so there are only a selective perfumes that I can endure. First off, I fell in love with this fragrance right away from look of the bottle, to the initial squirt, and then to about 2 hours into the dissappation. Initially it has a light floral sweet scent. There is nothing heavy about this fragrance. It's clean refreshing and made me feel happy energetic and uplifted. It has a natural outdoorish kind of feel to it , feminine, yet clean, and sexy at the same time. It was love at first sight for me with this fragrance. I do smell a very similarity between this one and Very Sexy by Victoria's Secret. They both have a vanilla orchid mix baby musk undertone as the hour wears on. After 2 hours I no longer can smell anything but a very faint vanilla baby powdery scent if I smell very close to it. I think Very Sexy lasts much longer. They both are beautiful amazing fragrances that can be worn day or night, probably better at work than play, more winter fall than summer. This fragrance is probably best for women over 20 but not above 50. I will repurchase. The down side, it has poor staying power. Other than that, it's a very easy to wear fragrance that won't make me ill like many junky diabetic sweet fragrances currently flashing all over the market

I wasn't planning on reviewing this until I saw the low ratings for this and felt I HAD to step in immediately. I honestly do not understand why this fragrance has had such bad reviews. I love it! I think it is classic and sexy, and I happily wear this for both day and night time.
Firstly, presentation. Burberry couldn't have hit the nail on the head any better if they tried with the campaign for this, featuring British beauty Rosie Huntington Whiteley. To me the campaign reflects this fragrance perfectly. It is classic (like the Burberry trench coat), sexy (like Miss Huntington Whiteley) and fun like the cheeky open trench coat she wears in the campaign. The fact that Burberry only uses British Models to front their brand (Emma Watson, Eddie Redmayne, Cara Delevigne, and Rosie of course! to name a few) is something I have always liked. The fact that this is a British brand is reflected all throughout the line and indeed this perfume.
The Bottle. Again, excellent job Burberry. Simple, original yet chic. I have to admit that at first when I saw the images of the perfume online I wasn't sure. I thought the shape was an unusual choice and that it didn't stand out as particularly unique to me. However, once visiting the Burberry counter (I actually ended up buying this in Paris instead of London) they managed to convinced me. It really fits in perfectly with the whole image of Burberry, and I can now say that I am proud to sit this on my dressing table!!
Now onto the most important part - the Scent. This is probably not a perfume for those of you who like incredibly delicate, subtle and almost understated fragrances. It is quite strong...but not overpowering..just strong in the sense that I don't feel the need to spray my entire body with this for it to be able to last. Me and my mother are both fans of Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh and Philosophy Amazing Grace which are both really light pretty floral scents. I love this perfume, however I must add that my mother does not. She finds it too overpowering, however admits to liking it a lot more once it has settled down. I must say, there is something "powdery" about the scent...which is probably the only criticism of this fragrance that I have. You do have to let it settle for about 5 minutes on the skin before it becomes truly wearable.
The lasting power is also incredible. Probably the best I have ever had from a perfume. I can spray this on in the morning (leave the house at 7am) and still be able to smell it on my wrists and clothes when I return at 7pm. That's 12 hours wear!!! The notes that stand out strongest to me are Rose, Amber, Vanilla and Freesia.
For anyone who wants to know exactly the formulation of this fragrance:
Freesia, Green Absinthe, Peach
Sandalwood, Cashmerean, Musk, Amber, Vanilla
The only other thing to mention about the scent itself is body chemistry. Many people have complained that they liked the initial scent of this, but it turned into a "nail varnish" remover smell on them over time. The only way around this is to get a sample. I have not experienced this, and neither have any of my friends that have borrowed this to trial. The only thing that we found was that for a few of us the scent stayed more vibrant and strong and for a few of us it became a more subtle, lighter scent.
Price. I must stay this is pretty steep if you look at price per ml. I ended up initially purchasing the 35ml version, to ensure I really liked it before committing to the full 85ml version. However, comparing it to other London based fragrance brands like Jo Malone, the price isn't so bad, and to be honest...the price doesn't even compare to the extortionate prices Tom Ford is charging, which many people happily fork out.
Who is this fragrance for? I have to tell you, that I cannot exactly pinpoint who this fragrance is ideally for. I am 18 years old, but i can equally see this as much on a 28, 38, 48 or even 88 year old. Something about the floral notes keeps it young and sexy, and something about the musky base keeps it classic. Burberry have truly made this wearable for all ages.
Overall my recommendation is, get a sample or go down to your nearest counter and smell this. I have fallen so in love with it that I am happily recommending it to all of my friends and family! I cannot believe the bad reviews on this!!!
