This is like London for the weekend. More casual, breezy, perhaps a little more fun, though Burberrys never really have that feel about them. I wouldn't call any of them vivacious or sparkling. I like the low key peach-apricot fruit in this much better than the more boring fruit in Brit. Less in your face, less young girl, more sophisticated. A fruit better made for more situations than Brit. It gets a lot paler, a lot faster than London, but the accord is somewhat pleasant - non-sugary peach and apricot, with a little casual sunshine from Marigold. I like it much better than Burberry Touch, which for a skin scent was much too harsh.
Styled similar to London, it has light hairspray in the opening, a borderline department store feel, is amiable, agreeable with skin and probably everyone around you. As London, an inoffensive people pleaser. Doesn't stand out and doesn't offend. I guess that is a type of success, as there are many situations that call for a quality like this. But when the nice peach-apricot dries off a bit Weekend becomes more generic, lacks personality, anything that sets it apart. It becomes somewhat of a beige-colored fragrance. As with London it develops a soapiness in the dry down and Marigold is the predominant note. The dry down lingers on as a skin scent for most the day and I kept getting whiffs of soapiness that was pleasant, but I prefer London as it has more of a personality, and becomes better as it ages.
It felt like Weekend and London were sister fragrances, one floral, one more casual fruity. Their construction was the same, and they both fill the same niche. You can practically feel the designer intent, that perhaps it was more a marketing decision than anything to do with inspiration. Entirely acceptable, safe anywhere.

This fragrance owns the internship for my sister's olfactory arsenal. A first blast and i smell citrus (lemon-orange), grapefruit, aromatic herbs, pungent-tart flowers (iris first of all and probably cyclamen and hyacinth) and a touch of honey coming from the background. The fruity-floral whiff is pungent, linear and slightly gassy till when the gas leaves the scene to a cedary and mossy dry down with a touch of warm honey. The juice is not bad but a bit boring and common (may be by somebody also imitated).

Got some from ebay, maybe it's a bad batch or something, but am disappointed. Very light and fruity smelling, didn't last very long. Will give it another try, but don't love it like I do the Classic.
this perfume is definately for a woman over 60 years old. Smells bad and it annoys me,makes me dizzy! It lasts for days though!
I have had this fragrance for years and I still love it. It continues to mature right along with me. I was still a teenager when I bought this fragrance and looking back it definitely overpowered by youth, but now older and wiser, it is such a beautiful wrapping of delicate femininity. I absolutely adore this fragrance.
