In a trench coat for a business lunch
With its unmistakable check pattern and legendary trench coat, Burberry represents the British understatement like no other company: restrained, cool, functional and tradition-conscious. That the rather boring trench coat can also be extremely sexy shows us already in the 60's of the last century Audrey Hepurn in Frühstück bei Tiffany: Enchanting how Holly Golightly at the end in the soaked trench coat finally stands to her feelings. Today Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears the expensive piece on bare skin and lolls on a soft surface.

The fragrance fits well with the style of the house: it is clear with a cool fresh absinthe note at the beginning, then gradually becoming more floral, softer and warmer. The fine heart note of roses, iris and sandalwood is already very feminine. Although Body possesses an amazing durability and also over a remarkable Sillage it is not superficially sweet and clumsy what comes probably by the Absinthe. One is therefore inclined to spray generously, but this makes it obtrusive and bitter. With economical dosage Body is wonderfully suitable as a companion in the office on cool autumn days. After a fresh start it is creamy, velvety and tender. Peach, rose and soft cashmere wood together with vanilla and sandalwood make this fragrance an extremely feminine fragrance. The wormwood gives it a slightly tart note that extends into the heart note and gives Body this incredibly distinguished aura. At the same time it surrounds the wearer with a feeling of freshly washed skin. Especially on laundry this fine noble scent is still perceptible after days.

Conclusion: Body is a noble companion for women who are looking for an individual fine fragrance with a bitter note. I like him better than Nomad. With its unobtrusive yet perceptible aura, it is also ideal for formal and more serious occasions. The bottle is a beautiful piece of jewellery in the bathroom. However, it is too unwieldy for on the way. But there is Body as sweet mini for the handbag...

I think my entire impression of this perfume is sideways!
This is a strange one for me - it smells so much like a clean, fresh, dewy pine tree after a good rain. I think the woody notes mixed with the peach and wormwood are what's causing this, but man.. it's delightful. And perhaps because of pine association, I feel it's most appropriate in winter (or perhaps even spring, with the aforementioned dewiness). That said, I don't get much warmth from this one, either - To me, it's cool, crisp and refreshing. If I had an office job, this is exactly what I'd wear to work. It's pleasant, doesn't overpower, and isn't at all 'provocative' in my opinion.

Which is why I was so perplexed when I saw the adverts here for it. A mostly nude woman lounging lasciviously in an overcoat? And here, I totally pegged this one for an office-appropriate scent!

A delicate, casual scent
I really admire Burberry as a house, and it's not because they create anything particularly spectacular, but because their fragrances exude a beautiful sense of warmth and elegance while remaining casual.

Burberry Body is a lovely fragrance, very much along the same lines as the Sensuous series by Estee Lauder. Both fragrances sit rather lightly on the skin with a cuddly, yet creamy woodsiness.

Some may be initially turned off by Burberry Body's opening, which to my nose was a little chemical, like the scent of insect repellent or hairspray. I was admittedly annoyed by these top notes, and had grave fears for what would follow.

Thankfully Burberry Body improves throughout its development. It's not an extremely loud fragrance, yet it does have good projection. Cashmere wood and sandalwood are the most dominant accords to my nose, followed by musk and creamy vanilla. The rose is very subtle, tending to be more sweet and fresh rather than tart-like.

Although it isn't technically a skin-scent, Burberry Body smells rather natural and smooth on the skin, like a lightly scented lotion rather than a perfume. I love that I can go about my daily business and occasionally get wafts of a beautiful, inoffensive woods and vanilla blend emanating from my wrists.

The longevity is wonderful, really surprising actually. I was thrilled to detect this light fragrance on my skin a good twelve hours after application. I haven't tried the Body Intense flanker, but somehow I don't want to. This fragrance is perfect just the way it is.

Mind and Body
Fruity,rosy and musky.The whole composition is good ,nice blended but.....there is something sharp green (may be the absynthe) that keeps me from not loving it.This is good floral with rose and peach dominating ,the base is soft woody with sandalwood and cashmerian wood .All in all is nice for daily wearing with good staying power.
