Burberry Sport for Women
During my shopping last month my hubby got this awesome perfume for me. I got the smaller bottle, as I was not very sure whether I would really love it as much as I do now. This perfume comes in a very cute and attractive packaging that could easily grab women who go for the packaging. I would say perfume is the only product, which I don’t end up buying only for the look. The fragrance matters a lot to me. I really can’t bear musk or powdery fragrances and also strong ones. I prefer fresh and fruity ones, in simple the summer editions.
- Top Notes – Mandarin, Ginger and Sea Salt
- Middle Notes – Floral blend of Magnolia and Honeysuckle.
- Base Notes – Musk and Cedar wood
To give a brief idea about what these notes are all about [for people who have no idea about these fragrance notes].
Top Notes are nothing but the smell we get as soon as we apply or spray the perfume. We judge a perfume usually with their top notes. Citrus, cinnamon, eucalyptus fragrances are common top notes. The top notes usually tend to evaporate quickly. This is also referred to as head notes. This lasts only for few mins.
Middle Notes also referred to as heart notes forms the main body of the fragrance. We can usually smell the middle notes from few minutes to one hour after the application of the perfume. This smell can be felt while the top notes are dissipating slowly. For example floral, cardamom scents form middle notes.
Base Notes are usually felt while the middle notes are dissipating in 30 mins to an hour. Base and middle notes form the main fragrance of the perfume. The base notes evaporate very slowly when compared to top and middle notes. This is the fragrance that is left out while we travel back home or hit the sack. It is also referred to as solar notes. Musk and woody fragrances are common base notes.
I usually try a perfume while I enter a store and comfortably all major stores like Lifestyle have their perfume counters just near the entrance. I smell the perfume every now and then till I come back for billing. This would easily take an hour or two. So I can smell all the notes and at the same time see the lasting power of the fragrance as well. Surprisingly Burberry Sport for Men did not last long. By the time we were done with the shopping we actually forgot in which hand the perfume was sprayed. So my hubby didn’t get it for him, though the smell was equally good as the women’s.
This perfume costs Rs.2010 for 30 ml.
When I spray this perfume the first impression I get about it is a floral fragrance that dominates the mandarin smell. Though it is not very fresh I really love this one. The smell lasts long until the day ends. The heart notes dominates the most and so you can have an idea what it would smell like. I really like this perfume and I regret for getting this small bottle now : (
- Packaging is super cute and attractive. Packed in red and white combination for women and red and black for men. Both looks equally good.
- Available in almost all major perfume stores.
- Available in 30 ml [if you are not very sure get this size] and 75 ml. The small one is Rs.2010 and the bigger one is Rs.3010.
- I love the floral fragrance. I wouldn’t say it is very floral but a combination and hence this new mixture is very pleasant.
- You get a cute red wristband with this bottle. You can see the band around the box. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of that separately.
- It is not too heavy and at the same time it lasts long. This is one aspect I really like about it. I hate perfumes that has disturbingly heavy odour.
- This is a new kind in my collection. I am a perfume freak and I stock heaps and heaps of perfumes with me. Most of my collection would be either super fresh summer ones or fruity fragrances. So this one is an odd one out but still I like it.
Dislikes about Burberry Sport for Women Perfume
- No fruity fragrance as it is mentioned to have a mandarin top note. People who go for fruity fragrances will get disappointed, as you can’t smell it even the minute you spray it.
- Price is a bit high when compared to the quantity given. I wouldn’t mind the price if the quantity is more. But since it is Burberry we can’t argue much about it.
Rating – :-* :-*:-*:-*
Would I buy it again? – Yes. I really love it and so does my hubby. 😉
