Burberry Holiday 2015 My Burberry Eau de Parfum Festive Edition: Review

Hello everyone and happy holidays! Behold the Burberry My Burberry Festive Edition Eau de Parfum ($135 CAD) and feast your eyes on its beauty. A very, very special holiday version of the original My Burberry, the Festive Edition features a unique glitter-filled perfume liquid that dazzles and sparkles under the light. To see some more photos of this absolute wonder, click......
The Bottle:
Housed in a clear rectangular bottle with a horn-finish cap (inspired by the signature hand-stitched buttons of the trench), My Burberry evokes the classic feel of the brand. The hand-tied gabardine ribbon on the neck of this Festive Edition is weaved with golden threads that glisten in the light.
The perfume is tinted a rich honey, and the best part about this holiday edition is that there is an added sprinkle of golden glitters within the perfume liquid.
When you shake the bottle, the glitters float and flurry within the perfume, creating the most dazzling display. The glitter bits are large enough that they don't get drawn up through the spritzer straw, so you don't have to worry about the perfume flow getting interrupted. I've personally never seen glitters added to perfume liquids and it makes me wish all perfumes had glitters! This is literally a snowglobe in a perfume bottle, I fall in love with it a little more each time I shake it around.
The Scent:
My Burberry is inspired by London gardens after the rain.

Top Notes: Sweet Pea, bergamot
Middle Notes: Golden quince, freesia, geranium
Base Notes: Rose absolute, patchouli

Usually any scent with bergamot hits me immediately with citrus notes but My Burberry actually gives off the scent of flowers and leaves after the rain, right upon the first whiff. The scent feels very cool and unique, despite the scent profile being quite similar to other popular floral scents on the market. The rose and freesia are the most prominent notes to my nose, mixed with an earthy dose of patchouli. If you love florals but not the sweet, overly-feminine type, you will love My Burberry. Now I just need a Burberry trench to go with the scent......
