Reviews of Brit for Men

£20 for 100ml. Couldn't resist.

Not what I was expecting. Much better in fact. A mature scent. Rose, powder & woods.

Very nice indeed!!

Like many other Burberry offerings Brit has a very impressively blended nature. Also very good power, projection and bang for the buck. Along with all that it lasts well into the next day as a strong skin scent. They certainly know how to build an affordable robust quality frag at Burberry.

However, an odd spice and incense vibe (cardamom I think) doesn't appeal to me; too bad as the rest of it is great. I can appreciate what they have done here, its very well done for sure. Like many a dish with an unusual dominant spice, it just doesn't compel me to dive in. Even so I was very tempted to go "thumbs up" anyway. I keep trying to take a serious shine to it and almost have gotten there. It covers so many bases extremely well.

Update: I have grown to favor Brit and have moved from neutral to thumbs up. I will wear it in rotation now.

Found a small bottle of this for a very low price, so I bought it blind. I spent about an hour at Nordstrom Rack agonizing over what to buy, and settled on this based on the note breakdown.
First: cardamom! I love it. And a bit more mature than the other cardamom-oriented fragrance I own (Tommy).
I do see the powdery-mess that I've read about, but I don't find it to smell like baby powder. Behind the cardamom I get ginger and rose, and an enjoyable synthetic note of some molecule in the vein of Cedramber, but not in the back-of-the-throat-assault way i am used to.
It dries down to a subtle coumarin-sweet, spicy (nutmeg?) cedar thing: a bit disappointed in its lack of oomph, but a good close-quarters fragrance,
While location prevents me from finding much in the vein of niche (or even higher end department store perfumes), this says: all is not lost. There may be a few normie fragrances left to try...

Extremely underrated. I have a lot of scents, several which would be considered powerhouses, and brits performance is as good as any. It does have the powdery scent but if all the powdery scents this is the most pleasing. I'm slightly older (42) but this gets me as many compliments as much more expensive ones.

This was my go to for about 2 years would always get complemented on it. My wife absolutly hates it however esp the dry down since she says it smells like talc. I still like it and when i break it out i always get compliments. Buy it.

A long time, go-to scent in my collection! Brit defines for me what a nice, pungent-powdery cologne should smell like....if only it'd last longer. It's pleasant to wear, and I enjoy beholding the bergamot, cedar, and roses interact with one another.

This one sort of reminds me of a toned down version of the classic monster cologne, Habit Rouge by Guerlain (which is not for the meek of heart!!). It's accessible both for younger and older wearers.

I haven't ventured too deeply into the "Brit Rhythm" flankers out right now (except for the Intense version), which I don't think are very related to the original. Check it out for yourself. ;^>
