    Can't wait to learn more about this. Hope it's a variation on the juice and not just the bottle.

    I love the original so it'll be interesting to see how this one smells like.

    I'll always give Burberry the benefit of he doubt, having made such a modern classic as Brit. And I love their recent bottle designs, too. I don't wear London too well, but look forward to trying this.

    Tried this at Marion Myer today

    First, I adore the bottle. It’s so much more contemporary than the original and oozes quality, which is lacking in the original. Check out the spray mechanism and you will know what I mean.

    It opens rather differently from the original. Here, the fruits are bright, light and uplifting. That’s not to say the original is dull, heavy or depressing. It’s just that the green apple in the SE lifts the mood so much that the subdued original feels much more grounded and mature, and very 'London'. Once the top notes settle, which doesn’t take long, rosemary and violet gently warm you up to the lovely patchouli, amber and musk. By the way, I detect some port wine note in the SE even though it is not listed.

    The longevity of the two versions are comparable. However, the feels of the two are rather different. I’ve always felt the original as mature and very ‘purple’. This time, I feel the colour of SE has been lightened to pink once the green apple settles, which never disappears completely. I am not saying the SE is girly, although it is much more musky and powdery in the dry down.

    Overall, the SE seems to be a lighter version of the original, with a generous dash or two of DKNY Be Delicious Men. It’s still very much a fall fragrance, but should appeal more to the younger market than the original.

    Will I buy it now? No, since I already have the original. Will I consider it as a future purpose once my original runs out? Absolutely.

    Green apple you say? There is a brief green apple note in Burberry Brit for men that I love. When I tested it on a card, it was what sold me. But on my skin, it is nothing but a fleeting top note in the first few minutes. If this London SE has the same green apple that lasts, might be a winner!

    Tried this today (only on a card)
    To me it smells like a mixture of Thierry Mugler Ice*Men and Joop! Rococo. I like both of these, so I will have to give it another trial on my skin.

    How about the boozy and tobacco notes? Are they still there in a significant way? Those are the ones I can't live without. Otherwise, I'll have to stick with the original....

    On the card, it smelt virtually nothing like the original London. If I get down to the shops again in the next few days I'll put some on my wrist to compare to the original.

    I was lucky to win one on ebay. (UK) I'm awating the arrival. I bought it for myself for a Christmas gift.

    Now I have to wait until Christmas!

    I've had the original two or three times. Just a little too thick and rich for me. And yet I wear M7...

    Initially I was hoping they would just increase the concentration of the original London which I like a lot but its longevity is abysmal on me.

    Same here, it's the only thing that's keeping me from buying a bottle.

    Has anyone else gotten their hands on this yet? Burberry London and DKNY Be Delicious are two of my favourite colognes - if this combines the better parts of the two, I could have a new signature scent. Has it even hit US shores yet?
