Mr. Burberry description
Mr. Burberry envelops you in smooth, nonchalant, and deeply-defined elegance, similar to the feel of the interior silk lining in a bespoke suit. Texture is as important as the strength of the individual notes. And experiencing the attention to the fit and trim of this fragrance is one of the best reasons to sample it.
Mr. Burberry is a plush, aromatic scent featuring tarragon, cardamom, grapefruit, and all composed in an expansive, welcoming style.
The opening balances the tart energy of fresh, sweet grapefruit with tarragon’s waxy bite and cardamom’s insistent sharpness. It’s a multi-faceted beginning that could stand alone as its own fragrance, but here instead leads to a warm, cozy heart of birch, nutmeg, and cedar.
The heart artfully displays an inner fusion between understated confidence and an emotionally expansive and tactile appeal. Cedar takes center stage in the middle of this fragrance, and its supple brightness dances in and out of nutmeg’s powdery warmth and the austere tang of the birch note, lending a winsome wink of energy and purpose. Burberry’s trademark gentlemanly reserve is still present, but this buttoned-up gent can also swing around a lamppost in the rain.
The dry down becomes sweeter and earthier with its addition of guaiac wood’s rustic caramel tones, and vetiver’s loamy, mossy nuances. There’s also a thin ribbon of arid sandalwood twisting through the base, but it is included to highlight the sweet, soft richness of the other base notes. And even in the dry down, the profile of this fragrance still carries quite an impact. The vetiver note shines, displaying its cool, minty quality as well as its rootsy side.
Mr. Burberry is a must-try if you are a Burberry aficionado already, and would like to sample the line in a more expressive, enveloping way. It’s tailored opulence is a treat for the skin and senses both.
