Don’t you just like the scent of the rain or dew in the garden, it brings out the liveliness and freshness of the grass and flowers. This scent is made possible with a tinge of sweetness to bring lovable memories along the way. It’s My Burberry, a new women fragrance that has just recently made their launch and currently made their way in Concourse Suria KLCC.

My Burberry Launch 2

Cara Delevinge and Kate Moss will be the face of My Burberry as they portrays individualism, optimism and distinctive characters as recapitulated in My Burberry and the fragrance recognizes no age constraint. The bottle and fragrance brings every elements of Burberry into one.

My Burberry

My Burberry was created by Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey in collaboration with perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.Francis is renowned in the world of perfumery having worked in the industry for over 20 years. My Burberry was to be a timeless yet contemporary fragrance representing the legacy of the Burberry brand. The partnership with Burberry was a natural choice for both Francis and the brand.’

My Burberry fragrance carries the scent of London garden after the rain bringing the grand floral fragrance of confidence, elegance yet discreet in typical British way. My Burberry is a bright grand floral fragrance that maintains its fresh floral scent through to the dry down.

Top Notes
Sweet pea and bergamot oil
The oil is sourced from Calabria in Italy and extracted
from the fresh rind by cold expression

Heart notes
Golden quince and freesia with a dash of geranium oil
The oil is sourced from Morocco and Egypt, extracted
from the plant by steam distillation

Base notes
Rose absolute and patchouli oil
The oil is sourced from Malaysia and Indonesia
and obtained by steam distillation

The bottle reflects on the same design principles and craftsmanship as the Burberry trench coat, fusing British innovation and heritage with a timeless modernity. Simple yet bold, made of smooth, tactile glass, the design is shaped to echo the folds and soft pleats of the Burberry trench coat.

The bold horn-finish cap reflects the distinctive hand-stitched buttons of the trench coat. Like natural horn, the material has colour variations, making each cap unique and each bottle a one-off.

Around the neck of the bottle is a hand-tied gabardine ribbon knot, the fabric at the heart of the trench coat. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, the waterproof fabric revolutionised rainwear and continues to be woven in Yorkshire, England from superfine cotton.

The shape of the inner glass bottle has been molded to mirror from iconic trench coat pocket shape. Presented in a trench-coloured box. The interior is lined in gold and embossed with the iconic Burberry check design, a badge of origin for the brand since the 1920s.

The My Burberry juice is reminiscent of the signature honey shade, one of the three colours used in the brand’s Heritage Trench Coat collection and synonymous with the trench coats worn by Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne in the My Burberry campaign.

SPECIALS* Personalized Monogram on My Burberry

Exclusively for the launch at Suria KLCC, you are able to get your bottle of My Burberry (90ml) monogram with your choice of 3 alphabets initials as you will be shared to discover the exclusivity of the fragrance and bottle designation of My Burberry on their iPad station.

The Makeup Look: Nude Glow

Nude Glow is an effortless look created to celebrate the launch of My Burberry. Designed for all skin tones, it is inspired by the iconic trench coat. Individual beauty is personalized with luminous, subtle hues from the Burberry palette. Skin glows with health, cheeks are softly warmed, eyes are defined with trench shades that can be intensified for evening. Lips are nude in a choice of finishes, nails feature a timeless Nude Beige.

I came to the event with light BB cream with brows done, eyeliner and mascara. Given with warm welcome, I was ushered to get a makeover to experience the Nude Glow Makeup Collection.

I managed to get the express manicure and I loved the shade so much. Indeed it is nude, so subtle just like the color of the trench coat and I have opted with Dark Bottle Green on my ring finger. This is the second day I have the nail polish and it has chipped but that is because of the things I do.

Burberry Nude Glow Makeup Collection Look

Berjaya Rasa Utara 2

Here was the heart warming food that I get to taste. Clockwise,  Daging Rendang Utara, Sayur Campur, Ayam Kari Kapitan, Ayam Goreng Cili Lagenda and Kari Ikan Rasa Utara. My favorite is the Daging Rendang Utara because it doesn’t just taste like the ordinary beef rendang but it has an additional spice that enhance and makes the beef much more flavorful. My other favorite would be Ayam Kari Kapitan as it wasn’t as milky but maintains it’s flavor although gravy isn’t thick. It is delicious and I was fed well!

What Did I Snagged At Malaysia Clothes Buffet?

Were you at the Malaysia’s Largest Clothes Buffet last weekend? Happened for 3 days at the Concourse Floor of Syopz Mall, Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus where there are more than 50,000 pieces of clothes up for grab. If you have missed this, I have shared about it in my previous post here. Be sure to follow me tight for future updates!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet

With my busy schedule, I only manage squeeze myself in to go on Sunday which was the last day of the event and that worried me because I was wondering if there is anything left. Of course, I wouldn’t leave the venue empty handed. I arrived at 12:15pm and they were running the Blowout Sales between 12:00pm to 1:00pm. The next session of the buffet will start at 1:00pm and I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to scout for what I want.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet Photo Board

Each of us were given a zip lock bag of 14 x 9 inch and if anyone blows the bag, there will be a penalty of MYR 20. I do play safe when it comes to such challenge, in fact my bag could fit one more but I couldn’t find what I wanted. Guess how many did I snagged? A total of 8 pieces. In my opinion, no matter how many pieces one could snag, the most important element is if the person like what they have picked. Let’s see what I picked from the buffet!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Black & White Asymmetrical Peplum Top

Black & White Asymmetrical Peplum

I always love asymmetrical and what makes this more interesting that it’s a peplum top. Here I have paired it with my red dress and skinny belt. The bottom portion of the dress is a round skirt which helps to make the peplum style look more fluffy. It is made of chiffon and I also liked it has another layer of white chiffon where it creates layers to the style. Another ways to style with this top is pencil skirt, shorts and skinny pants.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - White Tank Top

White Tank Top

As much as I like to wear tank tops, I do not have one in white. Therefore, I told myself I should definitely get one. The material is slightly sheer but not very obvious and this is a cross back tank top. I usually like to go casual with it and wear them with a pair of short jeans. They could easily be paired with any bottoms and outer wear.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Black and Turquoise Spaghetti

Black and Turquoise Spaghetti

Another basic casual wear, straight up stripped spaghetti top. I was worried that it could be too small for me when I first picked it. It is slightly tight but it’s stretchable. Just like the tank top, this can be paired easily with any outer wear or bottoms.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Sheer Long Sleeves Dull Pink Shirt

Sheer Long Sleeves Dull Pink Shirt

I can never have enough of sheers and chiffon. I do have something similar but it is in cream and this comes with a pocket. I always like chiffon for it’s light material and even if it’s long sleeve, it isn’t too bad to wear it in the tropical weather. This is an over-sized for me but I’m comfortable with it. Though it is in dull pink, it somehow portray quite a sweet look to it. This can be easily paired with any bottoms and can be nicely layered with sleeveless outer wears.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Convertible Peach Batiste Shirt

Convertible Peach Shirt

Another shirt but this fits better and different material (I believe it’s batiste). I call this convertible because I could wear it as long or three quarter sleeves. Plus I do not have any peach top which gives me a good reason to snag this. Batiste material is very light and airy. Peach shade always gives a warmer tone and I love this!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Bejeweled Pale Pink Dress

Bejeweled Pale Pink Dress

Despite of picking mostly casual tops, I was up for something glam. When I first picked up this dress, I thought it would be too small for me because my woes in over the hip and butt area. Yes, they are the biggest part of my body. I underestimated this dress and it didn’t hug my hips or butt tightly at all. It is loose that I look like a preggo. This can be worn as a dress or top. Under the sequins, it has a netting that creates softness to the style.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Sheer Floral Sleeves Pink Top

Sheer Floral Sleeves Pink Top

This top may look simple, I got attracted to it’s simplest details on the sleeves where it is sheer and embroidered with flowers pattern. I have paired this with a black skater skirt and I should have add a chunky or colorful necklace to spice up the style.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Twisted Gold Rope With Tassels

Twisted Gold Rope With Tassels

This pick was a last minute decision while I was packing the rest of the pieces into my bag carefully. It is a small item but I could use it as my belt. This gold rope comes with tassels at each ends. I did notice that one of the tassel is slightly damaged but it came off before I took this photo yesterday. I’m thinking of ways to fix it, it will be a waste if I toss it away.

FH Club Beauty Box

At the same time, there were other vendors at the buffet and one has caught my attention. A beauty box that I have to hear of and it only cost MYR 10. I went all over it and bought one for myself.

FH Club Beauty Box at Malaysia Clothes Buffet

MYR10 for all these? It’s definitely worth all the pennies! What makes it more interesting is that I was able to choose the items for my beauty box. From their display, I could pick 2 full size sheet mask, 2 samples and 2 fashion accessories. I have picked quite a handful of items.

  • Nature Republic Given By Nature Green Tea Mask Sheet
  • Nature Republic Given By Nature Chestnut Sheel Mask Sheet
  • Nature Republic Magic Remover Lip & Eye Fresh Tissue
  • Skin Food Gold Caviar Collagen Serum
  • Lavore Beige Turquoise Stud Dangle Earrings
  • Lavore Triangle White Crystal Patch Earrings

FH Club Beauty Box Nature Republic

I have also topped MYR2.00 along with the beauty box purchase and obtained another mask, Nature Republic Essential Solution Energy Ampoule Mask Sheet. This is a two-step mask which requires ampoule application before the mask.

FH Club Beauty Box Free Samples

I was given more samples of innisfree Air Skin Fit BB Cream, Inca Omega Power Oil and Nature Republic Super Origin Collagen BB Cream as well as fh Club brochure to further understand more. I’m not very sure of how their box works but they have quite a bit of sales happening in their web, fhClub.com.my.

I really look forward for Malaysia Clothes Buffet again but the venue is way too warm, I was sweating throughout my entire visit there including the buffet. Hopefully, organizers will be able to consider to run it indoor and it will be more comfortable to shop and run the challenge. If so, I will be back again!
