Burberry Classic For Women Eau De Parfum Review

I wonder how, but Sanjeev ji and Rati always come up with these totally awesome stuff!! They sure know the way of making us IMBBian’s feel special 🙂 and it surely must have been real hard work to compile such impressive list of products.  IMBB team, you rock!!


I had been wanting to try a new perfume since a while and so when we got this gem of an opportunity to pick and review a product from an amazing list, I was literally on cloud nine!! 😀 So, here is my first sponsored review from IMBB – Burberry Classic!

About Burberry:

Burberry is a luxury British design house founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856. This house distinguished itself with fashion and accessories, including a now-iconic trench coat and the brand’s unique and recognizable tartan pattern which has become one of the most-copied motifs in fashion. Burberry was granted a Royal Warrant for Clothing from the British Royal Family. In addition to their fashion line and accessories, the Burberry brand offers an exclusive line of fragrances for men and women—many in bottles adorned with the company’s signature tartan—under arrangement with Inter Parfums. Their first perfume, Burberry for Men, appeared in 1981. The earliest edition was created in 1981 and the newest is from 2011. Burberry Classic perfume was created by Michel Almairac in 1995.

INR 4750. You can find it cheaper online, but then I really doubt if they are genuine at all.

A Word:

When applying any fragrance, please consider that there are several factors which can affect the natural smell of your skin and, in turn, the way a scent smells on you. For instance, your mood, stress level, age, body chemistry, diet, and current medications may all alter the scents you wear. Similarly, factors such as dry or oily skin can even affect the amount of time a fragrance will last after being applied.

My Take on Burberry Classic For Women Eau De Parfum:

I simply love fruity fragrances! My absolute favorite so far has been Dior Miss Cherie.  Strong floral scents give me an instant migraine, but Burberry London being the only exception. I loved it from the first whiff of it, so here is another perfume from Burberry which I was sure wouldn’t disappoint me.

I got this 2 weeks back, and have been using this almost every single day! I like the way it smells on me – light, warm, cozy, sensual yet sweet and very feminine all at the same time. I cannot single out which dominates among these.

According to me or rather, on me, though the first whiff is an instant burst of a slightly peachy citrusy scent, the perfume smells mostly of spicy-vanilla thereafter and leaves behind a much understated musk-y scent which is not very overpowering (because the vanilla is more dominant), but something very feminine.  There was no jasmine that I could get from this neither was sandalwood prominent (and I ain’t complaining).

It smells way different on my sister! Mostly fruity on her and then it dies down with a sweet vanilla, without any traces of musk. I am sure each person would smell differently in this!

It’s neither too mild nor too strong. So, it might not probably make heads turn to know you have arrived when you are a mile away, but it is something when people stand beside you, surely notice.

You can’t go wrong with this, either if it’s an interview or a date. I would say it is ideal for both day wear and night wear and it will still make you want to sniff your wrist while sleeping at night! It kind of makes one feel very endearing and warm ‘n’ cozy.

Since it is not overpowering, it would make a perfect choice for everyday wear “all year long!” Definitely not something that you would get bored of. It is a very classy and elegant perfume in true sense and a classic for sure.

Who might like this?

I wouldn’t say it is for mature women, it is something that everyone can carry off, but it is definitely not that fresh, energetic scent a college goer would prefer. It is more of that sweet, sensual, oriental fragrance!

Is it my signature fragrance?


Now, here comes the dud part: The staying power.

It stays for about 3 hours on me after which a very light, sweet, musky fragrance lingers on which is almost “just-there.” I prefer perfumes which are long-staying, something that I can even smell the next day. I am pretty careless and carrying such delicate perfume bottles around is not my thing, but I really adore this perfume, so I got this small cute perfume refiller (I don’t know what you call it though), which I have filled with Burberry Classic, so that I can carry this around in my bag.

Do I Recommend Burberry Classic For Women Eau De Parfum?

If you love wearing something that is woody and spicy, sweet and musk-y at the same time, if you love that cozy and warm feeling from a scent, well then, this is “THE” one for you! (In spite of being woody and spicy, it is not a strong or heavy scent, mind you!)

All in all, the expensive price tag it comes with, could be a con for some, but I think Burberry Classic is more than worth a try, I am sure it would not disappoint.

For the fragrance alone, I would rate it 10/5!! Thanks to my refill stick, I can carry and use this at my convenience.

And a big ((((((Thank you))))))to IMBB!! Hugs! Love ya guys!
