My Burberry

My Burberry Eau de Parfum is a feminine, fresh, floral fragrance. It uses typically British notes like Geranium, Freesia, and Sweat Pea to recreate a ‘English country garden’ vibe.

It’s inoffensive and difficult to dislike. I don’t find it particularly unique but it’s certainly a safe blind buy for an every day perfume or if you’re looking for a perfume to give as a gift.

My Burberry Eau de Toilette

My Burberry Eau de Toilette is very light and innocent; suitable for a young girl or as a light floral scent for humid days. The Sweat Pea and Freesia of the Eau de Parfum are the main notes, with some Peony and Rose which combine to make a slightly sweet and aquatic floral bouquet. My Burberry Eau de Toilette kind of reminds me of a sweeter version of Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet.

My Burberry Black

My Burberry Black is much more interesting and unique than the original My Burberry. It starts with a Peach fragrance note (reminiscent of the opening of Dolce & Gabanna The One), as the fragrance settles it starts to reveal an Amber and Patchouli undertone, accompanied by a hint of Rose. The Patchouli makes My Burberry Black last much better than My Burberry original. I recommend My Burberry Black for the Autumn when you want that Amber and Patchouli hug.

My Burberry Black Elixir

Personally, I think My Burberry Black Elixir is the best fragrance in the My Burberry perfume range. After a zesty Lemon opening note, an interesting Marzipan and Almond note emerges (similar to Elie Saab Girl Of Now) which is complimented by Rose and Jasmine. My Burberry Black Elixir is rich, sexy and quite unique. I recommend it for date night, evenings and winter.

My Burberry Blush

My Burberry Blush is similar to the original My Burberry in that it’s a fresh floral fragrance; the main difference is the addition of a fruity vibe from a Green Apple and Pomegranate. My Burberry Blush is pretty and in offence, I recommend it for the Spring during the day.
