Brit Sheer description
If your idea of an ideal vacation is jetting off to a warm, tropical island, and sipping brightly-colored tropical cocktails, Burberry’s Brit Sheer would love to check in to your hotel with you. Brit Sheer might have been named for the sheer amount of juicy orange and yellow fruit that this perfume emanates right from the start.
Brit Sheer spills out at the top in a fountain of exotically tropical notes: yuzu, mandarin orange, pineapple, and lychee fruit. The top notes sparkle and splash on the skin like a dazzling shaft of sunlight dancing over the emerald ocean waves. The only thing missing is a Tiki mug with a bright pink umbrella.
After several minutes, the tropical fiesta dries down into a soft floral heart of peonies, peach blossom and sweet pea notes. Now that you’ve had your cocktail, and the sun is starting to set, the heart of Brit Sheer reminds you that a stroll along the cliffside to smell the native plants on the wind is a capital idea.
The floral notes are done in a demure, unfussy and elegant way, almost to calm the fragrance down after its island pyrotechnics in the top notes. The peony and sweet pea skip by with a light, stemmy and green trail, while the peach blossom provides a bridge for the tropical notes to fade out upon. It’s here in the heart where the true sheer nature of this perfume lies; the blend of florals is translucent and effortless.
The base notes of white musk and amyrtis wood complement both the top and heart notes – the white musk adding a tangy quality to the sheerness of the florals, and the creamy texture of the amyrtis wood circles back to the pineapple and lychee notes in the opening. The opening and base notes frame the gauzy, green notes in a wonderful and unexpected way – the tropical juice and creamy sweetness that only makes the floating, floral serenity in the middle of this perfume last that much longer.
So book your trip, pack your bags and we promise there’ll be a Tiki mug in the gift shop when you arrive.
