Review: My Burberry, Reminiscence of The After Rain Garden Scent With Admirable Details

Remember the recent launch of My Burberry? It has been almost 2 weeks and until today, I admire every single detail of this fragrance creation that I would take a glance of it every now and then. If you have missed the launch, it is fine because you can always check out this fragrance in-store and I believe you will admire this fragrance as much as I do after discover every details embodied into this fragrance.

My Burberry Fragrance

‘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.’

My Burberry Fragrance 1

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 fragrance has few ingredients that compliment each other to bring you that smooth sweet and dewy after rain garden scent.

The Bottle Design


My Burberry Frgrance - Bold Horn Cap

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. What special from this cap that I notice the pattern within it where there is gradation layers that blends into darker hues.

My Burberry Fragrance - Ribbon

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. This ain’t just the fabric itself, the knot exemplify the signature knot of Burberry trench coat.

My Burberry Fragrance - Ribbon Woven in England

Woven in England is where the material gabardine was made that protects against from most extreme weathers. This material was worn by the first explorers to the poles and by pioneering aviators.

My Burberry Fragrance - Inner Bottle Shape

The shape of the inner glass bottle has been molded to mirror from iconic trench coat pocket shape. 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.

My Burberry Fragrance - Inner Lining Checkered

The interior is lined in gold and embossed with the iconic Burberry check design, a badge of origin for the brand since the 1920s.

My Burberry Fragrance Box

The box is also made in England, carefully designed to compliment the fundamentals of the fragrance.

My Burberry Fragrance - Monogram

During the launch, I had the opportunity to have My Burberry bottle to be monogrammed with 3 initials of my choice. The letters was limited and I sorted with ‘TNJ’ which represents Traclyn and Jowie, who is my other half. Therefore, whenever I have use or glance at this fragrance, it will bring beautiful sweet memories of both of us.

My Burberry will be available at Sephora and exclusively in Isetan KLCC. My Burberry comes in 3 sizes and prices are as follows;

  • My Burberry EDP 90ml – MYR 465
  • My Burberry EDP 50ml – MYR315
  • My Burberry EDP 30ml – MYR205

Above all…

This fragrance is suitable for anyone who likes sweet and soothing scent. The scent doesn’t choke even if I took a heavy whiff when I applied it freshly and it reminds me of morning dew that brings freshness with a sweet note. As the scent sinks in, it becomes more subtle that the scent could almost replicate a mild honey scent. I would say that this fragrance is worth admiring although it could be pricier side but after knowing every details of the creation, I believe it would be worth to splurge occasionally.

My Rating: 4.9/5

Burberry Brit Rhythm Men Design

Designated mainly in black and silver, the bottle design shows the masculinity and the signature Burberry checks embossed adds more exclusivity to it.Burberry Brit Rhythm Men Nozzle

The fragrance pump is embossed with the name of the perfume gives an identity to the bottle, in case if you haven’t know about it.Burberry Brit Rhythm Men Ingredients

The ingredients listing for your concern and this fragrance is made in France.

Verdict?

Since this fragrance is for men, I have my BF to try this fragrance for 2 weeks and here are his thoughts. When it is freshly applied, it was very musky and spicy but after 15 minutes, the scent gets settled. It was woody and followed with sweet scent, quite florally. It reminds him of a bouquet of spring flowers. For an eau de toilette, it lasted for pretty long, approximately 8 hours. He loves the scent after it has settled for that sexy and energetic vibe.

What do I have to say of him when he is wearing Burberry Brit Rhythm? This may sound cheesy but he smells sexy! I have to admit that it was choking out of my lungs when he first applied but once it got settled, the scent became masculinely sweet and sexy. At the same time, it smells refreshing. I would be a great grab for yourself(if you’re a man) or as a gift for your boyfriend, friend, partner or husband.

Price (September 2013): MYR 226 (50ml), MYR310 (90ml)

Price: (October 2013 onwards): MYR 235 (50ml), MYR320 (90ml)

My Rating: 4.8/5

Review: Soft Satin Lip Cover, Burberry Lip Cover in Sepia Pink

When it comes to autumn, neutral colours are very much involved. These colour much more wearable than bright summer shades. Burberry has launched their Autumn Winter 2012 Collection a while go and I have reviewed their Velvet Foundation previously. This is an additional shade for their lip cover range which was launched along the Autumn Winter 2012 Collection.

Burberry Lip Cover adds a touch of radiance. The lightweight combination of nourishing oils and gel dispersed pigment ensures intense moisture and long lasting colour. Burberry Lip Cover contains anti-aging ceramides for fuller lip definition. Apply like a normal lipstick or apply to the finger and press into the lips for a more effortless natural colour – Burberry Lip Cover

It looks like ordinary lip stick but I love the iconic Burberry check on it plus it locks with the lid using magnet. A very sleek and simple design.

 The shade that I have here is Sepia Pink which is a deep pink, almost like the colour of wine. It’s a satin finish lipstick.

 This lipstick coverage is sheer to medium and well pigmented. The finish has a tinge of glossiness and it glides easily on my lips when I applied it.

Lasting Power Test

  •  8:48AM – is where I freshly applied it
  • 11:47AM – a quick update before heading out for lunch, the lipstick wears off only at the inner lips
  • 12:41PM – came back from lunch, most of the lipstick is all gone except on the lip line and re-applied it after
  • 6:23PM – the lipstick stayed on except the inner lips

Most of the time, I was using straw to drink and when the lipstick wears off on my inner lips, my lips starts to get a tinge dry.

 It does contain silicon if that is your concern.

Here is how I looked like with Burberry Lip Cover in Sepia Pink. I didn’t wear very much make-up and this is basically how I look like daily. With the lipstick, it creates a sophisticated and chic look.

Verdict?

 This lipstick is worth for its packaging and quality. It’s lightweight but of course, I could still feel the lipstick on my lips. It glides on smoothly on my lips and doesn’t settle into the lines, being cakey or bleed. It does have a very mild honey scent to it. Pretty moisturising as it didn’t dry out my lips and the shade is buildable.

Price: MYR96.00

Weight: 3.8g, 13oz.

Collection Status: Permanent , Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

Availability: Burberry counter, Isetan KLCC

PROs:

  • Beautiful packaging
  • Lightweight
  • Well pigmented
  • Glides smoothly during application
  • Doesn’t settle into lines, cakey or bleed
  • Moisturising
  • Buildable shade

CONs:

  • Contains silica
  • May be expensive for some people

My Rating: 4.8/5
