It's arrived; Burberry Body sample!

I got in from a pretty dull day at work yesterday to some excitement in the form of the Burberry Body sample!  I had waited quite a while to receive this after signing up to it thanks to a heads up from http://fleurdeforce.blogspot.com/ and I was actually beginning to think it was a hoax and that I would never actually receive it. I am so dramatic.
  I was also slightly disappointed that it was only a 4.5ml bottle rather than the 30ml that it said it would be but hey beggars can't be choosers =/ And the bottle is gorgeous, I would feel so classy whipping this out of my not so fancy Primarni bag and dabbing (there is a stopper rather than a spray pump) onto my wrists.
 Now, for the smell.  Am not actually quite sure if my vocabulary shall allow me to describe a scent to you in its full glory so here goes. . . When I first sniffed this scent from the bottle all I could smell was sweet sophistication but once applied and allowed to settle it turns quite musky but it's right in the middle of sweet and musky so a bit like a musky peach? That actually sounds more like something rotting in the fruit bowl.  It is very long lasting and so far everyone that has had a sniff has enjoyed!  The smallest bottle which is 30ml actually retails at £45 so no wonder they didn't give us a 30ml body but I would definitely recommend that you go out and have a whiff of this new perfume because it is really beautiful and anything that makes you even slightly comparable to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has got to be good!  

Let me know if you have any lush perfumes you could recommend to me because I'm becoming a bit of a perfume whore lately; 3 perfumes in one month? Must. Stop.


  1. wow!I suppose it's really good!

  2. from the way youve described it, it sounds like it smells amazing! Must go and track this down! x
