Wonders of Burberry Fragrance House5 min read
Synonym for the 156 years old English tradition, consistency in quality and traditional fashion that leads the trends two years ahead, Burberry is so much more than a luxurious brand.
Burberry is the only way to buy style and timeless elegance.
It all began with the “simple” trench coat, which now proudly wears the label iconic next to its name
It all started in 1856, with the making of jacket of impermeable material in Basingstoke, Hampshire.
These jackets were worn by Roald Amundsen on his conquest of the North Pole, and Ernest Shackleton’s expedition across Antarctica, but the real breakthrough occurred when the Burberry house was entrusted with creating military coat during the World War II.
However, the global fashion frenzy over the trench coat happened in 1961, when Audrey Hepburn’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s flaunted the famous interior tartan pattern coat.
In addition to their luxurious, stylish high end collection pieces and accessories, Burberry announced a domination in the olfactory sector, which began in 1981, with the launching of the first designer Burberry fragrance, Burberry for Men.
Since then, this House has introduced 81 perfumes for both women and men, pushing the boundaries of luxury and offering this olfactory nectar to the lovers of perfumes all around the globe.
