    Default Scent Synch Day - 10/15/08 - Burberry London

    Burberry London won by a long shot! I'm excited. I've just given London a casual sniff. I'm happy to get an excuse for an actual wearing. Plus, this frag can be found @ most dept stores so finding samples shouldn't be a problem. And due to its popularity, I'm sure some generous basenoters won't mind sending out some samples!

    Sooo...who's in??

    I'm ready!!! I have my 100ml bottle in hand and prepared to break my last record of 50 sprays of this stuff and maybe ... I'll get half a day's longevity out of it. I love this scent but I swear Hermes D'Orange Verte Concentree is the only frag that lasts shorter on my skin than Burberry London.

    But I'll spray everything on Oct. 15th ... arms, knees, ass, ... whatever it takes.

    I have to get a sample of this, I don't own it.

    Smelled it once at Neimans and liked it much better than I expected to. Of course, it's been recommended to me many times, since I'm such a cinnamon whore. Looking forward to giving it a full wearing!

    I... um... I... um. I sniffed the London at the Macy's? And the policeman man said to me "How much have you been drink?" And I said to him "London! Say, you got a smoke? 'Cause it's a pipe tobacco, too!" But he didn' b'lieve me, so now my 'torney's gonna buy me a bottle. Not, booze, silly! London! He says it proves I ain't drinkin'. I mean drunk.

    I'll probably be wearing it anyway, during these brisk eastern months (along with my Floris Santal). I'll definitely be in.

    Well, I couldn't resist the temptation and also this time I decided to be wiser (instead of throwing money for blind orders), so I went to the shopping mall and put few sprays on my wrist and neck. First impression - sour cherry (not listed as ingredient, maybe the wine?), pepper, tobacco, leather. It is in fact very interesting fragrance, individual, classy. I like it but it is still not my The One It is very similar to Sander for Men (because of the pepper) and Gucci Pour Homme II (because of the cherry) and lies somewhere between both, like a smooth transition from one to the other. I still promise to go the the mall on my birthday and use it again Unless anyone of you send it to me as a gift before that

    I think this is funny. you are the first one i read here who said it smells like cherry. I also thought so and wondered that noone thought the same way. Like moncherie ^^

  51. #51

    Default Re: Scent Synch Day - 10/15/08 - Burberry London

    Hmm, very strange - I think Gucci Por Homme II also has cherry but that's not mentioned in the notes, which makes me thinks either there is indeed unlisted cherry or there is some combination of notes which causes few particular noses - like yours and mine - to detect cherry whereas it is in fact not there. Who knows... By the way, the smell of sour cherry I am describing is actually a very particular smell of a home-made sour cherry jam and juice which my mother used to prepare in the past. I haven't met this particular kind of smell in any commercially sold product very often. I think it is regular cherry (and not sour cherry) which is used commercially and it is kind of different. Maybe that's the reason why people don't recognize what's in London as cherry?

    P.S. I have just checked in my bulgarian-english dictionary that what I am calling "sour-cherry" should be translated as morello-cherry in english.

    I have read some good things about Burberry scents but just can't take them seriously after the 'Chav' image that surrounds the clothing here in UK.

    I had to burn a £*** shirt because I didn't want to be associated with the people wearing cheap copies.

    My £*** Stone Island pullover has gone the same way.
