Burberry My Burberry Eau de Toilette: Review
Last September, the beloved My Burberry Eau de Parfum hit the shelves and for this summer, the classic scent is getting a fresh interpretation with an Eau de Toilette ($112 CAD) edition. To read all about this new scent and how it compares with the original, click........
My Burberry Eau de Toilette
The Bottle:
The My Burberry Eau de Toilette is housed in the same bottle as the My Burberry Eau de Parfum released last Fall. The only difference is that the Eau de Toilette liquid is slightly lighter in colored compared to that of the Eau de Parfum. Additionally, the Eau de Toilette comes in a much smaller box, which is adorned with a cute printed bow.
The clear rectangular bottle has a horn-finish cap, inspired by the signature hand-stitched buttons of the classic Burberry Trench. The perfume is tinted a light honey color, one of the three shades the Burberry trench is available in. To further mimic the classic trench, the bottle has a hand-tied gabardine ribbon on its neck.

The Scent:
Described as a lighter interpretation of the Eau de Parfum, My Burberry Eau de Toilette features some similar notes (sweet pea, freesia, and rose) as the original.

Top Notes: Sweet pea, lemon flower
Heart Notes: Peonies, peach flower, freesia
Base Notes: Damask rose, white moss, musk

Starting off with a fresh burst of soft lemon and sweet pea, My Burberry EDT's earthy moss undertones are quite strong, mingling with the floral notes to create a very mesmerizing concoction of sweet spring and summer notes. Compared to My Burberry EDP, this is definitely lighter and fresher; however, it still has a similar floral earthy feel.
Like the original EDP, this scent is very unique. It's floral but also refreshingly sweet; it's earthy but not overly heavy. If you love florals with a fresh and cool earthy tone, definitely check this out!
