Burberry for Men EDT description
Burberry for Men features a rich and complex blend of ripe fruit, opulent white florals, and a discreet background of bright aromatics.
Top notes of black currant, green apple, peach, marigold, and bergamot fuse into a strong, sweet, and muscular opening. The green apple and peach notes are the standouts, with black currant’s tart spices balancing out the fruit’s sugar. And a slender beam of marigold’s dry, green energy cuts through the round, fleshy fruit along with the black currant’s tang. The beginning of Burberry for Men announces this scent to be quite full and rich, with no shy amount of sillage and power.
The heart turns the focus from marigold and peach to a lush, radiant jasmine note. It’s immediately apparent, even as the fruit in the top develops, with jasmine’s decadent, sweet vanilla side in full bloom. Grace notes of bright mint and lime tailor the hem on the jasmine’s trail, while sandalwood and cedar flex their arid softness to contrast the voluptuous white floral presence. But again, the main appeal of Burberry for Men is in its unrestrained fullness, with the juiciest and sweetest notes getting all the spotlight in every phase. Peach, green apple, and jasmine quickly emerge as the wrought-iron anchors of this fragrance.
The dry down is a trio of vanilla, musk, and tonka that deeply underscore the vanillic jasmine in the heart. The musk is faint, with just enough presence to punctuate the rich sweetness from the vanilla, jasmine, and tonka as Burberry for Men completes its arc. The tonka and sandalwood are an especially attractive pairing, as they create a smoky, smooth, and polished counterpoint to all the layered velvet in the texture.
Burberry for Men is a fruity fragrance shot through with ample vanilla and spice nuances, and it announces itself with moderate power and tremendous sillage. Applying this scent with restraint is the way to go, and just let its innate strength take over. One spray is plenty. But within the force of its persona there are also plenty of aromatic tangents to discover, making Burberry for Men much more than a masculine fruity floral.
