Burberry Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette: Review

Disclaimer: The product featured was provided for review.
The most significant Burberry male fragrance launch to date, the Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette ($100 CAD for 100ml) is inspired by the classic Burberry black trench. Aimed at capture the essence of London, this fragrance promises an herbal woody profile. To read all about this scent, click.......

The Bottle:
Inspired by the iconic black trenches from Burberry, Mr. Burberry has a very masculine grey-tinted rectangular bottle. The etched cap is reminiscent of the trench's horn-look buttons and the neck of the bottle is wrapped with a hand-tied gabardine ribbon. Just like the My Burberry fragrance bottle, the Mr. Burberry bottle gives off a really classic yet modern feel.

The Scent:
Top Notes: Grapefruit, tarragon, cardamom.
Heart Notes: Birch leaf, nutmeg oil, cedarwood.
Base Notes: Vetiver, guaiac wood, sandalwood.

Mr. Burberry opens with a soft and refreshing whiff of grapefruit before fully transitioning into a warm and woody fragrance. The combination of nutmeg and cardamom really comes through to form a slightly sweet and spicy undertone while the vetiver, cedar, and sandalwood blends into the woody, earthy core. I'll admit that this isn't a very original scent as it's a pretty generic warm, woody cologne. With that said, I think Burberry has created a very pleasant and refined version that will sure to please those that appreciates a sophisticated and masculine scent.
