    Anybody know if the bottle changed?

    Nope, but I was sorely tempted to buy it. Still might.

    Burberry Brit for women had a packaging and bottle change. Got my sister one, she said smell was a little different but still good it’s possible Burberry is making changes to their line.

    While I have no issues over the latest bottle /box revamp I’m less optimistic about the contents within...

    Yup, just keeps getting worse and cheaper-smelling, but we're supposed to pretend otherwise because it's (inexplicably) a Basenotes darling.

    lol....yeah I really wanted to like this stuff. All the praise and the scent pyramid is also very appealing. But it's a huge letdown for me. Super faint, disappears after a few minutes. Burberry can't do anything right, IMO, outside of their original Burberry for Men.

    Eh, I get it. Widely available (so it's easy to sample), cheap, very versatile, slightly more complex in composition than much of the stuff around its pricepoint... but it's still a bit boring. I know you find it "scented candle"-y but I don't think it's particularly egregious on that score and think it's pretty wearable given its gentle projection and sillage.

    That said, Eau des Baux is the better "affordable" entry in Burberry London's lane.

    They butchered Gucci by Gucci with the new packaging & formulation awhile back. This could have the same fate.

    They've likely removed the "cloth sweater" to make the bottles less expensive.

    That would be my hope. I think the flannel looks cool, but it is just so unweildly. When I would try to spray it it would slide ever so slightly in my hand down, and it was just unnerving. Or, alternatively, they could make the flannel stuck to the bottle better than just tacked at a few points. Say, glued on the whole surface. That, and if they wanted they could make it last more than 30 minutes. It does smell good.

    Absolutely, a long-time Basenotes darling . Hopefully the silly fabric wrap has been dropped from the bottle.

    Hey guys, there was a topic on this very recently, within the past 2 weeks I believe and it was moved to "is my frag fake" forum. The guy who bought it showed the box and bottle, and the bottle looks exactly the same as previous, with only a change to the box. We thought it was a tester box honestly, due to how bland it was, and basically being a cardboard brown box, more or less. We never concluded anything on that thread, but I think now, we know the answer. New box, same bottle. I can't remember if the guy looked up his batch code or not, but given the resources I gave you could probably find an actual bottle that came out of the box in pictures, on that topic.

    I still have an older bottle and still love it. This was my Fall wedding and honeymoon scent when it came out in 2006 and I got another in 2008 that I use sparingly now. I have an unopened backup but am fearful it will be weaker. The one I have now lasts and still brings back great memories

    You chose well for the special occasion.

    Thanks Hednic! It fit perfectly. Talk about scent memories. We were in Tuscany when it was cool out at nights and every time I spray it my wife and I think of it. It’s the one perfume she loves on me. So it’s a date night one now. The original definitely lasted and left a trail

    I was so excited to see this one for $19.99 during the heyday of my fragrance obsession. Just hope they haven’t butchered it with a newer reformulation.

    As an aside, I checked the backup I purchased from Fragrancenet earlier this year when I thought we might have this discontinued and batch code is showing 2008. So you can still get some older bottles with good juice. I tested it snd its great!

    It’s my second 2008 after my original 2006 and is still strong. At least on me.
