Reviews of Burberry London for Men

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

Definitely unlike the original Burberry London (classic) for men, this is completely new take that only shares the "London" name but has a wildly daring, different composition. This one is fresh, shimmering with several notes over time, leaving you wondering what's to come but not with dread. I actually can sense the port wine and mimosa notes in it, unique and interesting! Must test out first before buying: It's not like the linear, citrus original and may not suit all tastes or moods.

My favorite holiday scent, reached for often then and rarely during the rest of the year. Its a somewhat gourmand tart and sweet winner that I wouldn't be without. My juice is current. It reminds me of several aspects of Burberry for men (which I also favor) with the added effect of strong olfactory association with the holidays, most notably Christmas.

Edit: Do not buy this anymore!
I am shocked and saddened at the moment.
This fragrance would be the closest thing that i have to a signature scent. I have just finished my original 2007 bottle and my new one has arrived and they are NOTHING alike. I wouldn't even call the new bottle a shadow of the original. It is watered down to the point of being unrecognizable. The stong port smell is gone. The deep dark spices, vanished. This now smells like a $5 cologne. The original put some of my EDPs to shame. How can perfumeries get away with this. I hope this review stops people from making the same mistake i just have. :(
I liken what they have done to this once top scent to bathing a picaso in paint thinners, it makes me sad.


A glass of port on the table.
A steaming warm spicy Christmas pudding in front of you.
A freshly cut Christmas tree in the corner of the room.
Your grandpa's freshly opened pouch of pipe tobacco sitting on the counter behind you.

Bottle the above and you have Burberry London.

At under $30, Burberry London is perhaps the most outstanding value in men's fragrance. You can purchase a tester or 1.7 for even less which is an absolute steal! Very high quality designer - rich, natural scent with good performance. I would describe it as a sweet woody tobacco lavender fragrance. Smells of tobacco, wood, and wine give it a warm, comforting feel. Almost a must have for the 4th quarter of the year. It is indeed a classic and I would add sexy and elegant too. For it's price Burberry London has to receive a 10/10 and might be the closest thing to a true blind buy!
