    So, is it different from the original? I have it in my wardrobe and have been seriously thinking about throwing it out. It smells of baby wipes to me.

    Lost - Bergamot, Ginger, Cardamon, Amber & Patchouli.

    Gained - Bay Leaf, Pine Needles, Incense.

    Definitely going to smell less 'dandy' than normal Brit, probably quite medicinal. I will definitely give it a test, but I like Brit as it is, and I have Body Kouros for that sweet medicinal feel.

    Brit is my favorite in the Burberry line so I'll be eager to try this, even though I really don't care for incense.

    I like the original but it's not masculine enough for me.
    The reason I don't buy it is because I don't feel comfortable with it.

    Please let this be a more masculine Brit!!!

    It seems they removed the floral note and replaced it with a leathery note. It doesn't smell anything like Touch or London, just a darker take on Brit. I haven't given it a full wearing yet, but I would say sillage and longevity remain the same from my brief testing.

    I would say it is worth getting if you were looking for a more masculine version of Brit. I love Brit, but this version has been what I have been looking for. I will keep both in my wardrobe.

    When I was at Macy's yesterday after work they were getting ready to add this to the displays. They did not have a tester out yet but assured me it would be out today. Looks like most places will have it out by the weekend.

    I didn't think it was anything special. I prefer the original Brit much more than this flanker, soon to be found at your local Marshalls/TJ Maxx.

    Bought this at Bloomingdales yesterday and I love it! It's definitely Burberry Brit, but it's now been made less powdery and a bit warmer. I wore it on a drive to the country yesterday and I thought I was smelling pine needles from the trees, but it was actually the new BB. The marketing for this really sells it as a holiday/ Christmassy scent, but I find it going to be perfect for fall/ winter. I lost my 1oz bottle of Burberry Brit (original) and I was frantically looking for it. Now that I have the Limited Edition, my search will be a little less frantic. I'm good.

    Imo the limited edition is just brit with a little less floral and a bit more in spices. Not worth the 72 ~ dollar price tag if you already have original brit.

  27. #27

    Default Re: Burberry Brit Limited Edition For Men in October

    I smelled this today. I can definitely smell the original Brit but like it's been said, the rose and powder is gone and replaced with a lot of incense and woods. It's like the bottle suggests, it's darker than the original. It's not something i'd own, since i already have Zirh Ikon and for now that satisfies my incensy scent.

    I'm about to spray some of my Brit on right now. You know, when I first got Brit, I wanted to wear it all the time. But then I kept readin about how it's such a fall scent, so I wore it less and decided to wait for fall to bring it out. Well by the time fall came (year before last or maybe last year), I didn't really have much desire to reach for it too often. Also, brit to me is kinda formal, so unless I was dressed the part as well, I didn't always feel my attire was appropriate for it. So basically I have kinda abandoned my Brit, but occassionally revisit it, because I remember how fond I was of it when I was first introduced to it.

    I like Brit, so I will be looking out for this one ( but not at retail price). The thing is, like Larwiz, I never wear it. I know why, its kind of linear. There are some other reasons too. But Brit is nice.

    By the way, for those who think Brit smells like baby wipes, you should :

    a) Smell some baby wipes
    b) Smell Bulgari Blu Notte
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    So its agreed this isn't worth retail, but worth it if you don't have brit and was looking to purchase brit.

    Default Re: Burberry Brit Limited Edition For Men in October

    Hrmmm... Brit used to be a major love of mine but there's something to it now that feels a bit cloying and sickmaking. I think I can only wear it in the coldest weather. I still have some great nostalgia for it though and I still think it's a great scent.

    Looking forward to trying this one... too bad it's not currently available in sizes smaller than 100ml. That's just way too much of almost any scent. I'm hoping there are some testers around my local stores.

    Well, I don't know if "we" all agreed to that. I guess I made that comment. But that was just speaking for myself.

    A few hours into the Limited Edition, it moves far away from the original. No baby powder to be found. Just a warm, cozy incense and wood smell that is great for the cold weather.

    I saw this one today and gave it a very brief test. I was never a huge fan of the original Brit-- I thought it was OK, but just never suited me. I don't look like I should reek of wedding cake-- at least that I know of.

    I tried the limited edition and it was kind of nice-- I could really smell the bay leaf easily. I thought it was nice, but nothing I felt strongly drawn to. The girl I was with said it was good, but not really my style. I want to try it again. I want to retry the London special edition again also.
