With Jasmine Thrown In (Perfume Thoughts: My Burberry Black)

nd-32566There is something about Burberry, as a House, that I like. I like their back story, their apparel, their perfumes. I especially like their perfumes for some reason. I think they are always well-made, accessible, and I always get compliments when I wear them. I got a sample of My Burberry Black and wore it today, and lo and behold, am in the office for five minutes and instantly got two compliments. This is a flanker of the original “My Burberry” (here were my thoughts   on it) so I was especially looking forward to this. Upon spraying, my first thought: jasmine. I think for this release, they supercharged on jasmine, and for me that is a very good thing. The official notes are: candied rose, peach nectar, patchouli.  What I smell are watery versions of those notes. The dewy feeling of the original is carried over here, and with more jasmine, I get why they would say this is a deeper, more intense version of the original. Signed by Master Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the perfume is a wonderful floral scent. I don’t know if it is because of my old age, but I have been getting more and more attracted to white florals of late. I don’t know if anyone really needs this if they have the original ‘My Burberry,’ but I want this.
