Burberry My Burberry Eau de Toilette

During humid spells of weather I tend to reach for light, refreshing fragrances and it is more often when I reach for eau de toilettes. The last thing I want is a scent to cloy, cause a headache or generally become sicking. Luckily for me and most likely so many others one of my favourite fragrances ever - Burberry My Burberry have just introduced a new, lighter eau de toilette version of of their best selling scents.

As you may know My Burberry is inspired by the trench coat and rain, much like the iconic coat this bottle and the liquid inside are camel coloured as a subtle nod to the brand's heritage. I rather like that the bottle is both classic and elegant - long gone are the days of the Burberry print adorning everything and every inch of a product.

Now I know that the note composition is ever so slightly different this time around, this is to allow it to sit lighter on the skin or so I'm told. In my opinion it smells very much like the original My Burberry and for that I am grateful, I love that it remains true to the original yet is a little more refreshing and lighter. The note composition is as follows: Sweet pea, bergamot as the top notes, combined with heart notes of geranium leaf, golden quince and freesia, with patchouli, damask rose and centifolia rose form the base. 

Like I always say (gosh I'm turning into my Grandmother aren't I?) fragrance reviews are a little pointless without a point of comparison. In my opinion My Burberry reminds me a lot of Jo Malone Rain & Angelica - cool, lightly floral and very refreshing much like a Spring rain fall. If you are looking for a cooling, perfect everyday fragrance this is the one to invest in.
