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

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.

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.

Burberry Nail polish in Nude Beige No.100

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

Here is the finished look from the Nude Glow Makeup Collection. I chose another lip color which Pink Appricot and I’m already in love with the eye shadow shades that they look so classy and sophisticated without being overly done.

As I was invited as a media, we were then treated with lunch at Rasa Utara, a northen Malaysian cuisine that is frequented by our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir. The brand has underwent a thorough revamp in 2011 to keep it up-to-date.

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!
