NEW! Burberry Body

Iconic British brand Burberry, have done well to reclaim the classy reputation they built up after it was scorned mercilessly for being 'chavvy' and a label favoured by football louts and market stalls alike.  The launch of a cosmetics line in 2010 and hiring Emma Watson, of Harry Potter fame as face of the brand has given the brand a much needed revival.

Its reign continues with the arrival of their latest female fragrance, Burberry Body. Take a quick look at the Burberry Body Campaign directed by Christopher Bailey, featuring British actress Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, and shot by Mario Testino in London

Burberry Body is feminine and effortlessly sensual and is made up of an eclectic mix of ingredients. The fragrance has top notes of fresh green absinthe, illuminating elegant peach and refined freesia, whilst woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber and musk compose the base.

At first spritz, it felt quite heavy and I could really pick up the alcohol, finding it quite overpowering. Once it had settled, 10 minutes later, it had a developed into a floral mix of rose and iris notes. I'm still on the fence with this, although my colleagues all exclaimed "Mmmm" in appreciation as one by one, they had a sniff of my wrist. If truth be told, I prefer Burberry Weekend!

The bottle is divine - okay, so it may also double up as an ornate erotic toy, but it's a multi faced work of art and will definitely be a centrepiece on any dressing table. I love the rose gold checked bottle lid and it drew gasps as I pulled it out of its box at work yesterday morning.

I was in burberry yesterday and I smelled this, its absolutely divine!

Same as you, at first whiff I didn't like it. After 10 mins or so, I was absolutely determined to get it!

Thing is I'd left Burberry and it isn't launched nationally till Thursday apparently (or so the ladies at Debenhams told me)
