To describe this scent I’d say this is comforting,relaxing,spicy,fiery and festive as this is definitely a scent to be worn in the holiday seasons.
Also at different times this reminds me of 2 different smells.
Smells very good with my body chemistry but I can see where it might be present too "pungent" on some poeple.
Top notes are lavender, bergamot and cinnamon; middle notes are mimosa and leather; base notes are opoponax, tobacco leaf, guaiac wood and oakmoss. It's mostly a skin scent, unless you keep spraying. For me, if it evokes anything, it's the dimly lit study of a distinguished gentleman in his smoking jacket.
YW Something really bugs me every time I see reviews of Burberry London.
If you're unsatisfied, you haven't wasted much money. But to everyone who thinks this can only be worn for four weeks around the holidays...right on doing it.
They might outnumber me, but please, if you're thinking of buying this, especially BLIND buying this, listen to me and not to them: BURBERRY LONDON SMELLS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE!!! I guess the bit of lavender in the top might be convincing people they smell something piney for a minute, but it's gone in minutes after spraying.
It's repeated so many times it almost feels like common wisdom.
