    About the only thing I can see going wrong with your purchase is that it sells for a few dollars less around the web but that's about it. It lives up to its name, it's definitely a Burberry, quality ingredients, light, carefree, nothing heavy or deep about it. It's a warm and friendly little citrus with nary a jarring, shocking, or univited accord. A comfort scent if there ever was one, pull out your old sweats and pull on a frayed polo and find something soft to sit on a while. Hey, it's the weekend.

    I'd say it's an 8. This particular tester will come WITHOUT a cap. I prefer that my bottle have a cap, if at all possible. (Some HTF or DCed frags may only be available as a tester.) I think it looks better and somehow I feel it will keep the scent fresher longer. (Maybe I'm wrong?!)

    I actually own Burberry Weekend (for men) and like it a lot. (I prefer the men's version over the woman's!)

    It is too harsh and I believe you could have found a better deal somewhere else.

    Also, it says its a 3.3oz EDT spray. Tester

    However, everywhere I look on the net seems to offer it for 3.4 oz...does this mean it's fake, or do they honestly have different bottles of .1 oz; or is it a typo; or is it something I am overlooking.

    Please pardon my ignorance.

    In either case, it's 100ml. It's because when you go to American sites, it still uses that outdated Imperial system of measuring. 100ml is around 3.3 or 3.4 oz. Some places like to pretend they're giving you more, but they're really just rounding up.

    America needs to pony up and start using Metric like the other 150+ countries. Even their territories are metric.

    No problem. I hope you enjoy weekend.

    If you want a rating, I'd say 7/10. It's honestly not that bad a fragrance. I just don't like it as much as Brit or London.
