I never knew that some colognes were meant for either warm or cold weather, and since it was spring, I looked for warm weather ones. So after a lot of research I decided to go ahead and buy Versace's Blue Jean without trying it first, and I like it. But I wanted more than one fragrance to keep from being monotonous, so later on I bought this, Burberry Brit, also without trying it beforehand.
At first I thought I made a terrible mistake. When I put tried it for the first time, I immediately thought I had just bought a remake of Calvin Klein's Obsession, which I do NOT want, too common. So I was disappointed. Later on I was reading and it occurred to me that the smell had changed. But, I wasn't sure. So the next day I tried it again, yep, definitely Obsession. And then later on, hmmm, that's interesting. After a few more times I realized that the cologne really did change into a different smell, and I like it, a lot. So, for me it's kinda interesting because at first I'm always thinking, "Ugh, Obsession" but later on I'm perfectly happy with it. I'll put up with the Obsession smell briefly for the good smell shortly afterward.
So, give it about an hour on you before you judge its smell. It's definitely one of those that needs time before you know what it'll smell like on you. And another good thing about it is that it lasts a good while. Blue Jean dies out on me before I get home from work, Brit lasts probably something like 12 hours on me. I only spray once, so I'm not a stink bug, but the subtle smell lasts. Brilliant.
7/10/13 update: After I used it all, I kept the bottle to remind me to buy some more, didn't really work. But, a few years later I'm at a factory outlet and they have a Burberry store, so I go in and buy a huge bottle of this stuff. I had forgotten about the initial smell and how it changes, but yeah, good stuff. Loving it again.
Burberry Brit is a gentle scent. It's not a pow, in your face scent and it hugs gently to your skin and doesn't fill the whole room, so it's perfect for wearing during the day or in the office. It's also not an offending scent by any means so I find it to be the perfect scent to wear to work if you're in an office setting and don't want to offend anyone.
As for fragrance, to me it smells mostly like clean soap, almonds, lime, and maybe a little bit of vanilla. It's a warm smell, but not overly sweet. It also doesn't smell strongly of alcohol, which some perfumes do. I'm in my mid twenties and I don't find this too mature a scent or too young of a scent. I imagine a classy lady in her twenties/thirties wearing this.
Give it a try. It's really a pleasing fragrance and you can't really go wrong with it!
