    Default Burberry Brit New Year Edition.

    Recently purchased this from another basenotes member and the notes look attractive, but I've only had the pleasure of owning and smelling London. This is not listed in the fragrance directory and I was just wondering how many have tried it and what were your impressions. Here's the note pyramid:

    Top: Nutmeg, Mandarin Orange, and Bay Leaf.

    Mid: Cedar, Rose, and Pine.

    Base: Incense, and Tonka Bean.

    I take it that this is not the same as the original Burberry Brit?

    I've never smelled the original so I have no references except it has incense, pine, and bay leaf as additional notes and it's supposed to be less powdery.

    I have it and it smells similar to the original without the ginger. Don't get any pine. Not bad but not essential.

    I saw a tester of this at Macy's recently but for some reason assumed that it was just the regular Brit with a special collector's edition bottle, I'll definitely have to check it out next time I go scouting out the fragrance section of that particular department store

    Another lousy flanker from a lousy original.
