Burberry My Burberry Black Perfume Review

Burberry My Burberry Black

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

My Burberry Black is a flanker¹ to My Burberry. I’m sorry to disappoint. I don’t have a sample of the original so I can’t really do an accurate comparison. I had tried My Burberry before and remember liking it. Obviously, I didn’t like it enough to buy it, but I thought it was pleasant enough and fit with the Burberry brand.

To my surprise, My Burberry Black opens with pineapple. It’s ripe, sticky, sweet pineapple. So much pineapple!… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Celeb Gossip:

Christina Aguilera is launching a new perfume in November, Red Sin. Seems like one of those names that looks better in writing vs. said out loud…Notes listed include red apple, cinnamon, cyclamen, ginger, musk and sandalwood. This really sounds like something I’d dislike.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have launched their 2nd unisex perfume, Unbreakable Joy. That name… Continue reading | 14 Comments

Burberry Body EDP Perfume Review

 

 Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I thought the Burberry Body ad campaign was very beautiful. The bottle caught my attention. I’m not a Burberry “fan girl” but I do like the original feminine and Weekend. I was excited to try this new fragrance even though I haven’t liked any of their recent launches. I sniffed Body in store a few times. I was completely disappointed. My husband called it “Bath and Burberry Works” because the scent seemed so generic and dull. I got a sample and tried it outside of the overwhelming mall environment. I… Continue reading | 11 Comments

Burberry The Beat EDP Perfume Review

Burberry The Beat for Women perfume

The Mainstream Monday: Sniffing A Popular Fragrance

Burberry The Beat reminds me of how a GAP store smells. It’s difficult to explain,  but it does. It is a mix of air conditioner, cotton, and obviously, GAP scents (specifically GAP Stay, so maybe it isn’t so difficult to explain).

The Beat opens with a kick of bergamot and tea. It reminds me of unbrewed Ceylon earl grey black tea. But, The Beat isn’t earthy tea or dried black tea-like. It’s citrusy… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Burberry Weekend for Women EDP Perfume Review

Burberry Weekend perfume
The Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Fragrance

Burberry describes Weekend for Women as “sparkling citrus floral fragrance” based on the “the spirit of outdoor escapes” suggesting early 1900’s explorers. Burberry Weekend is a fragrance that I’ve always had around since its launch in the late 90’s. I have never reviewed it because I find it difficult to do so because I’m so used to it. It’s hard for me to think about it in a review sense/notes but more of an
