Burberry London for Men fragrance notes

Reviews of Burberry London for Men

It's an enjoyable tobacco fragrance but has very few notes.Smells like a natural cinnamon cased pipe tobacco with hints of leather and cherry wine note.Unfortunately it doesn't remind me of a port...reminds of Night Train which is a cherry flavored bum wine.A cheap drink that that was found in any rural area gas station and the strongest buzz you could get since the closest liquor store was at least 70 miles away.

The cherry note isn't depressing as it fits to the holiday and winter feel of Burberry's the wine part and the familiar cherry combined.It's Christmas Eve and mom is sprinkling cinnamon on a mince fruit pie she just baked.Dad is found in the living room passed out,slouched in his leather chair and just finished his pipe.Beside his pipe on the side table you see a partial bottle of Night Train and an envelope.It's a foreclosure notice from the bank on the farmhouse...Merry Christmas.

Aside from how this fragrance rubs one on it's winter and Christmas memories...It's pretty stripped down in notes and in projection it starts out decent and goes to low.By the 6th hour I can't even smell it on me.Burberry London used to be pretty expensive which I would have gave it a thumb-downs easily at it's $55-$60 price tag for a 3.3oz bottle years ago.I waited until it was acquirable at the $30-$35 price range and blind-bought it.It's a mixed recommendation.

Warm, Earthy, Spicy.

Will forever be associated with fall colors and cooler weather later in the year, as it's been my casual signature scent for the past two fall seasons. Difficult too because I whitetail hunt that time of year and I really shouldn't be smelling like anything but it still gets the attention it deserves. The combination of cinnamon/nutmeg and that earthy undertone is really superb.

It's another one of those scents that smells knockout awesome but doesn't last more than an hour (Black Walnut, Millesime Imperial). Great thing its found cheap and easily though because you'll need about 12 sprays throughout the day.

Burberry London is a great scent. It's sweet and spicy. It's a warm scent. Imagine yourself in front of a fireplace smoking tobacco, your cinnamon and orange cookies next to you.
It's dry down is sweet.

Great Christmas and Fall Scent.

As warm as a wool-lined Burberry trench, this is a wonderful winter scent, truly evoking the scents of Christmas as so many have noted. Burberry London creates a Christmas where pipes are being smoked by fires in paneled rooms, with booze and fruit and mince pies on the groaning sideboard and a freshly cut fir decorated in its holiday finery. It is a romanticized Christmas, to be sure, but a warm and happy scent nonetheless. The best thing that I have smelled from this house since its original men's fragrance so long ago. While I tend to wear it in the winter during the holiday season, this would be an excellent way to bring the festive season with you all throughout the year.

I've had samples of this laying around, for quite some time. I'm glad I finally tried it. I love the way this smells on me. Slightly sweet and spicy, I could wear this all day.

I don't detect any cinnamon leaf here. The spiciness for me is the combination of opoponax, lavender, bergamot, and mimosa. Yet, these blend into a sweet tobacco smoke with an undertone of leather and wood.

It's just darn pleasant for me. It's a smile in a bottle. It doesn't come off as inexpensive even though one can buy this for next to nothing.

Got a sample to see if Burberry London could be my new Fall scent. Like many have said--and I agree, BL is "Christmas in a bottle." The scent is pleasant and smells of pine needles, sweet spices, and woods. For me, the leather note is not very prominent, but picking out notes is not my strong suit.

Though BL smells delightful, it flounders in versatility and performance. BL is a cool weather fragrance only. In fact, because of the close association of its pine needles and cinnamon notes with Thanksgiving and Christmas, the fragrance's use might be best limited to November and December only. Performance, likewise, is not great. At best you can expect little more than an hour of projection and a few hours longevity.

All in all, despite its apparent limited use and mild performance, BL grows on you and is worth having in your collection. There really is no other fragrance quite like it.

Also, on a very personal note, my wife seems to like it a lot. Of my 30+ bottles, she has only really liked Sauvage, so her approval of BL is newsworthy (at least for me).

Scent 8/10
Longevity 4/10
Projection 5/10
