Reviews of Burberry Body

Burberry Body is an utter delight. In fact, it may be on its way to becoming my signature daytime scent.

This hit the market two years prior to Joy Forever, and they are so similar that one could easily be mistaken as a flanker of the other. In JF, the galbanum keeps the peach from getting overly ripe and really holds the composition together. In BB, the wormwood takes on that same role.

BB sparkles from the first spray and takes it's sweet time to fizzle down to its mid and base notes after about 3 hours (Redneck Perfumisto's "spicy sparks" is quite an apt description). A magic wand, indeed.

EDIT: I have samples of both the EdT and the EdP, and the EdP is where the magic is. The EdT has an added apple note that somehow takes away the sparkle (even though I usually appreciate a good apple note).

EDIT #2: Apparently I had a sample of the EdP Intense, so THAT is where the magic is. \_(ツ)_/ I have a bottle of the Intense version on the way and will use my last edit to let you know if the magic is lost. If you don't hear back from me, that's a good sign.

Subtle, corporate,
The pale Beige vanity wand
Of flower power

Tempts even the boys
To pick up the crystal rod
And see if it works.

The lightly powdered
Rosy Iris Cashmeran
Flirting with makeup

But never quite there
Cool, calm, professional yet
Still quite feminine.

So the boy sighed and
Put back the magic wand that
Works better for girls

Wishing macho wish
For macho magic wand that
Sprays some spicy sparks.

I don't care what anyone else writes -- I love this one! It is a wonderful designer fragrance. It's actually my first Burberry purchase. Sweet woody. Light peach. Smoky floral. Burnt sugar. Almost milky, in the middle. Nutty vanilla.

Burberry Body is clean and fresh....perfect for the office.

It's nothing all that exciting or innovative, but sometimes I just want to smell nice...Perfume "statements" are not always appreciated in a busy office. This is perfectly nice!

This is a strange one for me. I think my entire impression of this perfume is sideways!

To me, this smells so much like a clean, fresh, dewy pine tree after a good rain. I think the woody notes mixed with the peach and wormwood are what's causing this, but man.. it's delightful. And perhaps because of pine association, I feel it's most appropriate in winter (or perhaps even spring, with the aforementioned dewiness). That said, I don't get much warmth from this one, either - To me, it's cool, crisp and refreshing. If I had an office job, this is exactly what I'd wear to work. It's pleasant, doesn't overpower, and isn't at all 'provocative' in my opinion.

Burberry Body is not that bad in my humble opinion. Yes, it is a galaxolide type of fruity-floral, nothing new under sun. The aroma is immediately peppery (a huge amount in my perception), musky, intensely peachy, vaguely aqueous (watery freesia and grapefruit I suppose) and citric under my nose (more than vaguely sour, almost bitter for a while). The scent performs a sort of sexy floral depth conjuring me more than vaguely the aroma of slightly sweaty teen-agers girls arm-pits in late spring time when the sweat starts to connect its molecules with easy-going floral deodorants. The rose-iris combination elicits a sophisticated floral spark in the background (sparkling due to pepper fibrillation) while the dry down (the part I less like) is mostly musky breeze unfortunately ruined by hints of sythetic vanilla. In the complex Body is a teen-ager easy going feminine fragrance which works for what needs to work (in its joyful youthful un-expensive range) since you can purchase Mitsouko, Cinnabar, Chanel N 19, Jul et Mad Aqua Sextius or Iris 39 if you are looking for something more elevated, enigmatic or compelling. Mediocre but not monstrous.
