Burberry Woman or Burberry London for Women is a feminine version of the fragrant duo, called Burberry. Burberry woman is simple and charming, she loves the City she lives in and enjoys the long walks in the streets of London. Perfume is made in striking minimalist design. It starts with succulent and fresh burst of fruits; peach, apricot, cool pear and black currant. The heart is woody-floral; composed of clear and sharp notes of jasmine gently harmonized with the notes of sandalwood and cedar. The drydown is made of musk and vanilla. The perfume was created by Michel Almairac in 1995.

Burberry Women Fragrance Reviews

I really wanted to like this one, as I am very fond of Burberry as a brand and I already love Burberry Brit and Burberry Brit Red but after trying it once again in a shop I realized I cannot.
It starts in a very nice way, it is fruity but not too juicy, definitely elegant, but alas, powder arrives and overwhelmes everything else.
The feeling I have when I get the heart notes is a bit like getting a nice piece of fruit from a bowl and accidentally dropping it onto a dusty floor...
Sorry, Burberry!

This is not a traditional fruity perfume. It is a classic timeless fragrance that can be worn during any season and any time of the day or night. For me it has nearly therapeutic and calming properties. It is light, airy, and very English. Strangely, I always imagine a proper lady riding a horse around the countryside of England wearing something very similar to this fragrance. As for the notes, I am unable to say that one note stands out perfectly alone as they are smooth and very well balanced into a beautiful bouquet.

I first wore this in the male version when in a pinch at a friend's house and we decided to go out for New Years Eve. I got a number of compliments that night and said well I guess I need to try the women's version! I still love it on men. The women's Burberry has been stand by favorite of mine since that time, especially in the fall and winter seasons. I get spicy currant top notes with middle notes of more citrus fruit and wood with a dry down to vanilla. The vanilla is really present and pleasant throughout all phases.

I have a sweet story for this perfume.The first time that I smelled this fragrance was close to when it was first introduced in the late 90's, when it was new and rare. I was at Epcot Center in the England pavilion. My mom and I went in to look at the teapots and lo and behold there were the Burberry fragrances. Being on vacation, there was plenty of time to smell and enjoy them and I was instantly in love and happily made my purchase. Later that week, we were walking down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and at the end of the street is that wonderful ice cream parlor where they bake their own ice cream cones. Well, that smell of the vanilla-ey, brown sugar, deliciousness wafted right into the street and pulled me in like a snake charmer…. To me, Burberry smells like that shop: delectable vanilla, warm, inviting. Now that I see so many fragranticans smelling peach, I do smell some peach, but to me, Burberry is vanilla ice cream cone with a tad sexy invitation of more (cedar) peeping out from under the surface. I associate Burberry as an autumn and winter fragrance but it works on a cooler spring summer evening as well.

I think every female, whether old or young, should own this scent. It's so pleasant on the nose and wears beautifully, it's gentle yet noticeable and certainly a smell suited to any time of year unless it's extremely hot. Very nice inoffensive perfume for work, people will want to snuggle up to you as you will smell like ambery peaches and custard!

5/5 one of my all time faves, I wish we had more space on the favourites shelf !

I was given this as a gift, it probably isn't something I would have chosen for myself as I prefer floral fragrances, but it has become a scent I now wear regularly. I find this pleasantly woody, more suitable for autumn or winter. This perfume really needs time to settle, I think that the initial spray is quite chemical and overbearing, but once it settles it develops into a soft scent which is stylish and confident. Have had compliments when I've worn this.

I wore this religiously about a year and a half ago and loved it. It smells like a warm delicious peach cobbler. It's a very comforting scent. Long lasting, too, and just all-around wonderful.

I still love it, but it's difficult for me to wear it because it brings back unpleasant memories (such as my father being very sick) and I can't help but think back to that worrisome time when I wear this.

I will have to say that I think this would smell delicious on a man. It's musky and sexy, but soft and a bit sweet. Mmmm.

I have a weakness for Burberry as a brand, so I've decided over a year ago to buy this blindly. Well, huge mistake. I've used it like maximum 10 times by now. I really really tried to like this fragrance, but i just can't. To me is all about the peaches. Peaches, peaches, some pear and a huge splash of powder. You know that feeling when it's very hot outside and you feel almost suffocated? I get this every time i wear this perfume. So now it's just sitting on my counter craving for affection. Sorry Burberry, i'm just not your type of girl!

This smelled great in the bottle and on paper, but once I actually wore it it didn't take too long before it took a turn for the worst. I found it super-heavy and excruciatingly sweet to the brink of being nauseating, and had to literally scrub it off (good news, though: It lasts for a very, very long time). From the reviews I assume this is one of those "love it or hate it" scents. Make sure to try it before you buy it.

Oh peaches in the beginning! And then some pear that goes along with it!
Very fresh and for me I find this fragrance quite masculine and it shows from de begging. In the dry down the fragrance settles down and begin to turn a bit more warm, probably because of the vanilla. But deffenetly for me the cedar and the musk are all that i can notice, and there is where the masculine in this perfume lives. A very elegant perfume, powdery indeed, but can be easly used in the day as well!

An understated masterpiece that doesn't need to shout to be heard, and insipires confidence for that reason. Wearing this, you'll always exude a calm and classy demeanor. Vanilla, peaches n' cream, with an effervescent quality and not too sweet. Unless you need to be edgy or attention seeking, it will fit every occasion of your life. Makes me smile when I sniff my wrist during the day, and it does last all day. Always get complements from people that come in for a hug (and those are the people that matter!)

A soft, warm, sweet fragrance much like peaches in baskets in the hot summer sun at a road-side stand. The musk gives it a bit of sophistication. A little sweet vanilla. Lovely and gentle. Burberry Women is my favorite scent by Burberry.

Amazing longevity; moderate sillage.

This fragrance is light, creamy and warm. Stayed very close to the skin.

The peach, apricot, pear and black currant add a fruity freshness to this scent without making it too sour or overpowering. This is actually a fruity opening that I rather enjoyed.

Overall Burberry Woman is comforting and suitable for any age group. It's friendly and casual; not sexy, romantic or outstanding.

I bought this perfume because it had an interresting discount ( and because I really like it duh). It reminded another perfume, but i couldn't tell which one. And I wore it at Christmas at my sister's place. My sister likes perfume too , so I took the bottle out of my purse to make her try it . She liked it a lot a told me she had smelled it from the moment I came in, and thought it was Eau Jeune's Démon . So this is it ! She was right , they are quite similar . Burberry is softer , more subtle though .
It's suitable for an everyday use, and yet remains elegant.
I have the feeling it's going to be discontinued , I see it less often on shops.

This should be called Lovely. This is a very light and soft fragrance, fruity vanilla, slightly plasticy but in pleasant way; there is nothing unique about it, no distinct character, however wearing it makes me feel lovely.

This is a really light fragrance. Perhaps if you spray a lot it will project because otherwise it's almost like a skin scent. The smell is definitely pleasant but it's too darn light and to me doesn't have much character. I prefer Burberry London for women over this.

A soft floral, a touch of powder, a hint of sweet citrus in a vanilla woods.

I picture a woman: touching her lover affectionately each time they pass
out to lunch with her mother, reaching across the table to hold her hand while they reminisce
snuggling with her children under a white down-filled comforter

I picture a feminine woman, satisfied with her life.

This fragrance may not be the first one I always reach for, but one I will always come back to.

Love it. The first note is fresh and fruity. I love the 3rd note with vanilla. It's sweet and warm for cold days. It's classy and feminine like its name "Woman". I'm very pleasant with my purchase although I have not tried the mini test yet. I've just researched on various forums and bought a 1.7oz/50ml bottle

First notes were really fine, fresh and pleasant. Unfortunately, just few minutes later it changed so much that I could not believe it! Started to be very, very heavy and scratchy. A killer, it is not said enough. This is a bomb!
Wanted to scrub it out as soon as I returned home, but my devotion to scents' accurate examination, made me wait for base notes to develop. Oh, thanks heavens, my patience was rewarded. Base notes are really nice.
I know that some ladies prefers strong scents, and they don't smell badly at all. I think it is just skin chemistry secret. Some skins 'drink' fragrances, some don't. My skin is moderate and on the one hand - don't tolerate too heavy scents, on the other hand - 'drink' very fast too mild scents.
Burberry Women is just not for me.

This is kind of an interesting fragrance, I had it, it is definitely a scent of the nineties, safe, soft, but on me, it just isnt best..it has a vintage edge, it smells warm, fuzzy, and a bit oldish..I don't say it in a bad way, just that it smells like the inside of an ancient cabinet at times, and for me, it isnt what I like...
The peach note isn't very fresh, it is almost like fizzy peach liquor, so it can easily be too much?
On my mother in law, it smells warm, and interesting , on me, not so good...
Not modern enough, sexy enough...boringly nice...

This is my go-to daytime/office casual scent. It is light and pretty, fairly inoffensive with light sillage and average longevity.

To me it smells feminine and elegant and not too in your face. It whispers quietly all day rather than shouting in your face. I've never had any comments when wearing this, or awkward train moments where people move either closer or further away from you as soon as you stand near them and they catch a whiff of your fragrance. For an office perfume that's a good thing.

Burberry for 'Woman': I think I might have already given a low down on my thoughts on this. They are thoughts which I'm sharing and thoughts and feelings and responses do change.
There are so many fragrances out there, and as with anything there are times we hit and miss. Love and hate.
Smells affect our responses, and we like to think we matter as individuals and that we are somehow unique. It's a nice thought anyhow!
Now pertaining to 'Woman' by Burberry, many reviewers here don't like to compare fragrances. So I'm probably damned here by that idea.
I have this fragrance as part of a miniature gift set. The one that I have is the EDP. I tried it last night on my wrist. According to my Olfactory nerves, I tripped down audacious memory lane and detected a similarity to Ted Lapidus's 'Fantasme'. Shock and reaction to Burberry's audacity to clone this scent. I'm positive 'Fantasme' came first? Though I may be wrong. What insolence? Denial then acceptance.
For Pete's sake this is a Perfume blog site.
"Put the LIME in The COCONUT". So Similar. Funny how one can Love and Hate in the spin of a few months, day's milliseconds? So mood orientated as well.
I'm happy to have what I have and I'm happy to have something that reminds me of good times especially if the other fragrance has been discontinued.

Cheer T.

Sometimes the fragrance notes combine in some sort of strange alchemy and produce a perfume that is beyond any component and becomes its own unique self. This is one such fragrance. I recognize it immediately whenever I encounter it in the world. There is nothing quite like it.

I absolutely adored it at first. Now I don't. It has the Youth Dew problem: very strong, very unique and recognizable. It is a fragrance that wears you and not the other way around. This is not to say it's bad. It's not, it's lovely. But after a number of years it's easy to get tired of it.

I've put mine aside for now and hope it doesn't become revolting where I stored it.

I first came upon this when I was 18, back then when it was still known as "Burberry London." I displayed it proudly on my nightstand in college, and felt so sophisticated with it in comparison to my peers who were either spritzing something from Abercrombie or donning some other typical fruity floral. Burberry Woman is an all around likable fragrance, so much so that various celebrities who love it for themselves have seemed to have copied it for their own launches.

I'll still pick Burberry over the others though, simply because the vanilla and the fruit, no matter how similar the others are, are done more to my liking here. This opens with peaches, but not the sugary artificial kind that seems to permeate a lot of the "fruity" fragrances these days. This is a peach stewed with a pinch of spice and rounded out with vanilla. There's also a plumminess to it; it reminds me of dehydrated plum candies I had as a child. As it dries down, the vanilla becomes more prominent, but instead of the sugary vanilla accords that dominate much of today's market, this is tamer. It fades into some less than inspiring clean musk, but for the most part, I love it. It's not "sexy" in a cleavage baring va va voom sort of way. It's more like a nice cashmere sweater that envelops you- it's a cuddle scent. This is never too sweet and has a touch of gourmand without going overboard. It's a classic.

It's such a happy, upbeat scent of vanilla with sweet fruits, but slight touches of oakmoss and woods balance out the sweetness. This will probably be my next signature scent, I've been wearing it for the last few days and can't keep my nose away from my wrist. Thanks so much to the great Fragrantica member who shared this with me :)

From the notes listed, I should love this, but I actually can't stand the smell of this at all. I usually love warmer scents and fruity, sweet scents. This is both, but it is just almost sickly to me. Even most perfumes lots of others say are too sweet for them, I usually love them. This however, from the moment I put it on, clear to the dry down, is just a "NO" for me. There is some note in it I can't stand. It's just heavy on me and syrupy, in a bad way. Not sure what note it is I can't stand, but I'm pretty sure it isn't the peach, because I have other peach scented perfumes, and I love those. I think it may just be the notes combined together.

This was my first perfume ever, when I was 14 years old. It reminds me of my youth...But, now that I am 30, it is still one of my favorites! It is sweet-floral scent, strong sillage, for day wear. People usually like it to smell on me :)

Wow! Comforting and warm and gentle and sophisticated. On me, the vanilla, peach, and florals are quite beautiful. It could hardly knock someone over as it behaves so mindfully and properly. This would most certainly work on a woman of any age and is signature worthy, but I have so many other fragrances that I can't stick to just one!

This is a perfect fragrance to wear when you can't make up your mind on what to wear: Uncomplicated but not simplistic, unobtrusive and close to the skin, it won't offend anyone and you will enjoy the whiffs you will catch throughout the day.
To my nose, it's a fruity floral vanilla with a base of woods.
All the notes are perfectly balanced, nothing shouts or hogs the composition, it's just a nice go to fragrance.

This one, for me, is the "no brainer". If I'm not sure what I'll be doing for the day or whom I might see, this is my "go to" scent. It is Very Lovely and really quite perfect for any time and any situation. It is not Very loud but I can smell it for a long time and I really enjoy the scent.

I was SO looking forward to trying this one out and it turned out absolutely awful on me. I was sick of it as soon as it hit my skin, and after 3 hours it had to be washed off. Smelled old, the opposite of modern or interesting. Headache-material, no peach to be found.

Like a classy and polite British woman, this perfume is feminine, pragmatic and reserved. Peaches and apricot are her cheerful face, while the musk and vanilla remind you that there is more to her than meets the eye.

When I first tried it I wasn't sure; however the drydown settled into a warm cloud of loveliness, very self assured and confident scent.

I'm not hard to please, but unfortunately all I could smell was pepper with a burnt wood smell. None of the other notes made it through - no peach, no fruits, no vanilla.
With so many good reviews I wish I knew why it didn't work for me.....maybe this was not suited to my skin.

Burberry for women veers a little masculine (pleasantly so, wood & cassis) in the beginning, but dries down to vanilla/fruit cuddliness — I smell mostly peach and a little pear with a lingering trace of the burst of blackcurrant in the top notes. The cedarwood is present from top to drydown, and it feels quite dry and lends a touch of sobriety to this sweet concoction, saving it from becoming overly dessert-like. Maybe it's my Anglophile heart speaking, but it feels very British to me in a rather romantic way. It also feels very Indian-summer'y/height-of-autumn'ish: golden, cosy, generous yet a little introspective. A perfect companion for September-October.

It lasts about five hours on me, and while it's no sillage monster by any means, I do catch constant, soft whiffs of it when I wear it. It's reserved, but not shy.

Burberry women has become one of my latest favorites, it's sweet,so sophisticated, but not showy .
there's one of the brightest vanilla I've ever smelled. Sugared almond together with a discernible apricot and a distinguished peach, which are joyful and rich. Peach and vanilla work so well together on a musk base..creating also a seductive eco.
for me Burberry is a delicious morning fragrance. A great classic floral-fruity from the recent past!!

Oh this is the love of my life! Burberry is sweet and clean smelling at the same time. This to me smells very proper and British. I picture a naturally beautiful girl wearing this with very little make up and a side swept loose braid. Burberry is also very 'polite' I can't see it being offensive to anybody. I never hesitate with this fragrance. Not a 'statement' maker, just beautiful sweet clean and feminine...I love!!

Beautiful scent. I found it years ago and fell in love with it. If you enjoy loud attention grabbing perfume then chances are you will not enjoy Burberry's. This is one of those soft gentle scents that you get a wiff of and think hmmmm what is that lovely scent? It's light so you have to be closer to the person to pick up on the scent. My husband absolutely loves this fragrance out of all the ones I own. A timeless classic!

It's a long lost love of mine. Lucky I found it again. :)

I fell in love with Burberry Women* long time ago but I was a student back then and couldn't afford it. Now, after so many years I recently bought a bottle, and I'm very glad I did. In a rather short time it has become a favourite of mine, I'd say it's a steady warderobe staple for chilly weather, just like a burgundy colored velvet blazer - it's warm, cosy and goes with nearly everything. Especially in autumn.

The heart of Burberry is surprisingly similiar to the opening of 5th Avenue Style by Elizabeth Arden. Vanilla plus spices surrounded by some yummy peach and/or white chocolate. So it's kind of fluffy, comfy and peppery at the same time. Feels warm, comforting and feminine. The big difference however is the final phase - Burberry dries down to a sweet, musky skin scent whereas Style gets its airy "lemon pie" twist.

As for the rest of the notes mentioned - I'm not able to detect them. In a way I feel left out, but all in all I cannot complain at all since I enjoy Burberry Woman as is. Not to mention the fact that jasmine, moss and cedar turn out rather ugly on me/for my nose. And the latter would be a true pity as I happen to like this mild and spirit-lifting gem called Burberry (Classic :P) a lot. My comfort and confidence scent!

*on my own I like to call it the Burberry Classic. Too bad it's not the official name of this fragrance, lol.

I only smell nutmeg, no more than that, where I think that it should smell proper, for I paid for that, not nutmeg, I can smell that in the kitchen, there's no need to smell it on clothes and me, where I think they sent me the wrong version of it, for it should be good, not what I received!

Ok, so I bought it from a sales yard, I saw the review and think of my self that it would be a great oportunity to experience a new scent for me..so here's my review.. this perfume is more for a very mature women, the smell is warm, I can detect the peaches, the vanilla, the sweet pear, the musk, the sandalwood and the cedar, but in my body, I detect some amber, the mix of it makes me nauseas, I just put a drop on my wrist and I just can't stand it, even when I take a bath the smell was there, 6 hours later.. still I don't hate it, but is not for young people, like on early 20 or 30, yet the smell is elegant and not too sweet, more for winter time and some special ocassions. It reminds me of Imari seduction from Avon, and my mom likes it , but for me, is a great no.

I love Burberry Woman. My go-to fragrance in the fall and winter months. I find it a little to heavy/warm/spicy in the summer, but have been known to wear it when I want to feel confident. I do not smell any fruit, may just be my nose, but I do not pick up peaches, blackberry or pear out of this perfume. It's just an interesting smell, almost a sweet smelling plastic(in the best possible way). It is a pretty smell. After about 30 mins to an hour I can start smelling a warm jasmine and sandalwood mixed with vanilla. Towards the end (6hrs later) its all vanilla and sweet musk on me. This perfume sounds like it would be sickeningly sweet, but it is not. Everything is in nice proportion to each other. At least on me all the notes just meld nicely.
I always get complimented when I wear this.

This is one that I need in the full size bottle because I reach for it so often. A true skin scent that I cannot smell on myself after the first 15 minutes but get complimented all day . I have purchased this one more than any other and when I don't have it I feel that my collection is incomplete. Yes Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson is very similar but I think Burberry is more fruity and woody and very vanillic, FL is very floral. In the winter time there is no question that I would prefer to wear Burberry over FL, this perfume blossoms in the cooler months.

Creamy vanilla peach with a hint of jasmine resting comfortably on a bed of musk and wood. This fragrance is so exquisitely well done. Aroma therapy at its best. Excellent longevity and perfect sillage.

Beautifully blended, soft fragrance that is easy to love. A subtle fruity opening develops into an earthy, musky dry down that smells like clean, warm skin. One of my daytime favorites.

After seeing so many enticing reviews just had to give this one a go. Glad I did. From top to bottom this lovely creation delights me. Wearing this exhilarates and comforts simultaneously--great aroma therapy. Inital spray is rather green- think fresh sliced apples and tea. The drydown is all warmed peaches and cream and a hint of clean musk. Great longevity and moderate sillage-- Burberry is appropriate for all seasons and occasions. Will most certainly repurchase this wonderful perfume.

I find this a very unique perfume, it feels thicker than most perfumes somehow. It's warm and cozy, and I can detect peach, jasmine and vanilla which I love. There is a harsh note in there that stops me from loving it though, which I really wanted to do.

i accidentally bought this perfume. originally i was planning to buy burberry london for my mom bcs i knew that she liked that kind of scent.but unfortunately there's a misscommunication when i bought this online and it turns out that this one arrived at my home, the classic one. i was angry and upset at first bcs this is not what i really want and worried what if my mom dislike this perfume. i tried to spritz this one my wrist and hate it, totally hate it bcs it was too strong. but time passed and i still be able to smell it hazily. the smell became softer and lovely! i mean it was something calm, sweet, yet powdery. well actually it's not horrible scent tough, just too heavy for me. and the most important is my mom likes it!

This scent is what I love to wear in the evening, and to sleep in. It's like a spray of pure calm and a big hug. It's delicious and comforting and I can't imagine not having it in my collection. It's a constant stay in my scent wardrobe. I would be so sad if this ever was discontinued.

This was the first bottle of Burberry perfume I've ever purchased. I bought this years ago, and I've since been absolutely obsessed with their perfumes. This is such a well done, classy, yet simple scent. When I wear it, it lasts for a long time (6 hours) and my first whiff gives me an intoxicatingly deep scent of peach with a hint of vanilla. What I like about this so much is that a lot of scents are so vanilla heavy, but on me the peach really rules and I smell more of the vanilla on the dry down. I'm a two-sprayer, neck and wrists and this scent stays very close to me. I wear this in the fall...It's too sweet for my tastes for summer and a little on the lighter side for winter. My ex bf had to nuzzle and get pretty close to smell it, but he said he loved it. <3

When I first sprayed this, I thought it may have been a unisex scent or man's cologne. The dry down is very woody on me, the cedar and leathers of the base notes are tempered with a soft amber that reminds me of the scent of skin--not at all unpleasant. My fiancé loves it on me! It took a few tries before I felt the same, but now although it is not a "signature scent" it is one of my favorites. Not sweet at all, and not earthy, but it has a very human smell to it that is both sensual and comforting. I love putting it on before a run or exercise because it has a certain aspect that blends with natural scents, instead of masking them.

This is a beautiful and interesting fragrance. I agree with another reviewer that it smells somewhat like horses, or leather, in the most intoxicating and pleasant way possible. I can't explain how, but it's true!
Burberry is an excellent work perfume; it is clean, soapy, soft, fresh and totally inoffensive. As many reviewers have stated above, it does have a peaches and cream aroma.
I think it is a classic and perfect fragrance that can take on many moods. In the fall or winter, it can smell fresh, woodsy or equestrian, and in the summer, it can smell like peach pie and vanilla ice cream.
The vanilla is just perfect, slightly spicy and not too sweet or headache inducing.
The only feature that I find a flaw is the peach note. It does sometimes seem to dominate, when I wish I could smell a bit more of the sensual notes...likes the vanilla and sandalwood.

**note** I think Burberry has been reformulated. The newer bottles at the store smells very diluted and not as creamy as before.

Indeed, this smells like iced tea. More specifically, like Lipton iced tea - kinda sweet, kinda fruity, synthetic tea.

I dislike vanilla in most fragrances as they tend to become syrupy and cloying but not this perfume! Vanilla is mellow here, subtly sweet and comforting.

Think of Lipton Tea, with a dash of vanilla, topped with freshly cut riped peaches and a hint of musky woodiness. That, my friend, is Burberry Women.

When I first sprayed it on, I walked around town and wondered to myself what delightful fragrance was wafting around? I thought it was the well-dressed lady in front of me but no! Turns out to be me.
Edit: after using it at home, there is a 5-10minutes of sour-ish smell most likely due to the top notes of black currant and green apples.

The fun part about this fragrance is its complexity - you can both smell the light fruitiness of it and its comforting woody (lightly) vanilla base.

Classy fragrance this is. Sillage seems huge for just one spray. I'll update on sillage/longevity later.

A thumbs up from me for now.
EDIT: Lasted over 7 hours on my skin. Projection is fantastic for the first 3 hours, before it dies down to a skin scent that's a musky woody vanilla.

I was in my early twenties when this came out, and I remember sniffing it for the first time, and thinking with surprise and delight,"Wow! Creamsicles!" I had smelled no other perfume like it, and who could have predicted that it would turn out to be as influential as it has been?


For me, Burberry is pure peaches and cream pastoralism, as unpretentious, soft and gladdening as a favorite sweater. It seems almost out of step now with Burberry's current image of being for trustfund hipsters in trenchcoats, but what can you do? It's still a lovely scent for bringing summer's optimism to a gloomy day.

I somehow can't separate the classic Burberry scents from horses. Even though there are no leather or animal notes present, this is perhaps because I seriously studied equitation and show jumping at a stable owned by ex-pat Brits as a teen & young adult, and "the Burberry's" seemed to be the scents of choice of the family as well as their additional imported English instructors.

To this day I feel it would be my Day Scent-of-Choice were I ever to be invited to an English stately manor for a weekend of riding - it would have to go after my luxe bath prior to cocktail hour of course, at which time I would change to something devastatingly yet tasefully sexy (read "not too in-your-face French) that nevertheless had the gumption to carry me from cocktail hour, through the intimate dinner for 12, all the way to tea, biscuits & gossip in the Grand Dame's sitting room while the men remain downstairs enjoying their cigars and aged brandy in the library.

In the absence of all that, I still wouldn't think of getting on an English saddle in the cooler months without my Burberry, nor even if it's merely to be a picture-taking, leaf-admiring day excursion into the fall countryside, for that matter! To me, Fall + countryside + nature = Burberry for Women!

I don't mind smelling it on someone, but it isn't for me. Maybe something in the scent is overripe. I didn't enjoy it much. Like woods mixed with ripened fruits, just isn't smelling the best to me. On my mother in law it has delightful whiffs of warm peach, not on me , cozy, a bit old fashioned also .

This scent smells like Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love but its less intense and more mature..It is candy sweet with rose i actually prefer Simpson's over this one cause i like gourmands that are really strong but if your looking for a more mature scent of this you may prefer this better as its not as cloyying as Fancy Love although i adore that one..both smell great..

woodsy vanilla peach, right up my alley.
i tend to leave this one on the shelf a lot, and then everytime i reach for it & spray i forget how much i LOVE this.
something about this smell is totally comforting, it will always make me want to cuddle and remember all of those happy, cozy moments with a special someome.
on me, this lasts so long, even when i think it's gone it comes creeping back, this one lingers.
to me it's sweet, thoughtful and special.

This fragrance is a huge success. It's been years since it's launched, it's become a classic, cherished and worn extensively, and copied for countless times.
There must be a reason to this. Women and men alike likes it.
I believe Burberry reflects the spirit of the time -zeitgeist- it was launched and goes well beyond it.
It could be the trademark definition of fresh and "modern". Just wearable, it just goes for any occassion.
Despite I had it years ago, I always keep a bottle of something similar to it. It's a must have!

I so wanted to like this one. The notes of stewed fruits and vanilla sounded so cozy. The opening was nice - mostly got the stewed fruits, but no vanilla. After about 30 minutes, however, these fruits started to ferment and I was left with a very unpleasant sharp and sour smell that was the same both on my skin and clothes. I don't know if it was maybe the black currant? I've not had that problem with black currant in other scents though.

Longevity was about 3 hours on my skin and 12+ hours (unfortunately, in my case) on my clothing.

I got this parfume as a present and had to give it away to another person after couple of tries. It is very difficult to review a parfume that gave me such a massive headache and feeling of nausea - each and single time I tried it. I don't know what might have couased that because normally I don't shy away from heady and VERY strong franfrences - Aromatics Elixir for example. AE is my signiture and ironically is very often hated by so many others for it's potency and stregnth. Now I know how that feels when a parfume make you sick....
This Burberry doesn't mix well with me.

I tested this to discern the similarity to Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love, a scent I love, and they truly are remarkably similar.
Though while similar, the way they feel is different. Fancy Love feels a little bit innocent, and has a slightly fresher quality to it, whereas Burberry smells warm and cosy, a well made simple scent. Though there's no amber in this...? It smells like amber and peaches, soft and subtle, blended well so that the peach is not sickly, nor especially fruity.
A very nice scent, and if you like Fancy Love or want a more womanly version of it try this, you'll definitely like it.

I agree with some of the reveiwers that this perfume is a classic kind of smell. It seasonless, casual, yet sophisticated in its own unique simple way.

Although its got lots of fruit notes listed, they do not overwhelm. I hate floral fruity perfumes and there is nothing floral fruity about this scent. Its a bit hard to describe because the blending is so superb, but the end result is a scent that is quiet, close to the skin, and basically a skin scent.

Someone once wrote in a fragrance board somewhere that this perfume smelled like your lover after you wake up in his arms in the morning. Its funny because it does have a human like smell to it once it dries down. Musky, slightly sweet, and I think the cedar makes the scent smell somewhat masculine. But with the notes all combined you get a smell that really does smell like a lover you want to cuddle with.

There's not one note in this perfume that stands out alone. They all combine to form a subtle classic scent that says HUG ME, Im a keeper and you can trust me.

Chic and classic are two very apropos words to describe Burberry. It opens with a burst of fresh fruits (which smell drupe/citrus to my nose) and then very quickly dries down to powdery woods. And while it's quite pleasant on the skin, Burberry is a perfume I'd associate more with a woman who's conservative, classic, perhaps even quietly restrained. It doesn't suit my personality, but it definitely has its merits!

I appreciate perfumes that are classified as niche, obscure, or complex. But sometimes I just want to feel simple, classic, and beautiful. That's when I wear Burberry. In my humble opinion, this is a classic -- I mean that both in the sense that it seems timeless and also that it can be worn by any age. Case in point: I wear this, both of my younger sisters wear this, and my stepmother wears this. We all love it!

The fruit notes here are tempered by woods and musk (despite the heavy presence of fruit, particularly peach, this is neither sweet nor gourmand). It is powdery without being "old-fashioned" and woody while still being feminine. It manages somehow to be both slightly tart and elegantly soft.

It is so well blended that it is difficult to pick up on any individual notes (this characteristic reminds me of Chanel Allure). People WILL ask what you are wearing when they get close.

Burberry is an easy, chic daytime fragrance that transitions well into any season. Sillage stays close to the wearer, but lasts quite well. I would consider this a great go-to perfume for workdays and casual weekends. I also think this would be a great perfume to wear for interviews, because it is likable, approachable, but memorable. I would hire you ;)

This has been my signature fragrance for the past 13 years and that's very unlikely to change. I love that it's so classic, soft, feminine and subtle yet complex. The first thing I smell when I put it on, is the black currants. YUM! Followed by apples and peaches all that with a base of vanilla and sandalwood. It's the kind of perfume that gets noticed but not the second you walk into a room. It sometimes makes people wonder if you're wearing perfume or you just smell that good! (at least 3 different people said that to me)

I was a little reluctant to wear this at first because I felt it was so quiet and shy. The kind of scent your would wear for yourself only.
So one day I discovered this in the back of my drawer and I decided to wear it on a "girls night" because I was so bored of everything else. I applied generously and flew out the door. Close to midnight I kept smelling something so good and I couldn't figure out what it was but my train of thought was interrupted by my friends pulling me to the dance floor. I kept noticing this guy getting closer and closer until he lightly touched my shoulder and said What are you wearing? and I said Burberry, why are you asking? He smiled and said it was so good, almost intoxicating! From that night on I started wearing it for girls night and it always gathered compliments. Never underestimate the power of peaches and musky vanilla. Lovely fragrance.

This is a really classy fragrance for autumn and winter. They say it's floral fruity but I personally don't get flowers or fruits at all. To me it's more oriental/woody. I clearly detect cedar, powder and vanilla. I think men love this scent on me more than I do. They find it sexy. To me, it's sophisticated, a little intoxicating, a little old style, I have a love/hate relationship with this so I use to wear it once a month or so, not more often.

I LOVE this perfume. Most perfumes quickly turn sickly-sweet or rancid/sour on me, but the powdery-vanilla-musk-cedar works well for hours (it does eventually smell a little like sour, cheap musk. I spray it on wrists so I can wash it off quickly when that happens. Curse you, body chemistry!). The peach evaporates pretty quickly, but it's a great fall/winter scent! Love the powdery accent.

Classy in a bottle!!!

I love Burberry Woman, it is my signature scent. The vanilla and wood components are the most noticable on me. The musk is alluring. It is a woody musk that appears about 6 hrs after initial application. If you are thinking about getting this perfume test early in the morning and note how changes during the day. If you are into linear perfumes you may find the shifting nature of Burberry annoying.

Office safe: Yes
Potency: MEDIUM (3 - 5 sprays)
Projection: sits close to skin
Longetivity: 10 hrs +
Timing: can be worn anytime of the year all day

This perfume has made many unknown people stopp me and ask me what perfume I am wearing. My friends try it but it does not work on them. When describing this scent it is so not down my alley, I am usually into woody, masculine scents - and often wear homme perfumes. But there is magic in Burberrys signature. The bottle says nothing, packaging is superneutral. I found it by chance when I got a sample of it. Love at first smell, and people around me never stop admiring it. Give it a shot even if you don't like vanilla. There is more to this sweet scent than meets the eye.

Decided to revisit Burberry & do a little comparison. Tested 3 of the Burberry fragrances and walked away to let them settle in. Two hours later I took a whiff of each one expecting my usual "meh, I can live with out it" reaction. This one, Burberry Woman surprised me...

Wow...How many times had i passed it by? All the notes harmonized into a warm & clear fragrance that just made me turn back around, walk into the store and buy it on the spot. Mildly fruity with a soft vanilla undertone that's feels just like a cool breeze on a clear & warm autumn day. I wouldn't call this my signature scent, but its definitely my autumn & winter fume until the bottle runs dry or something else strikes that elusive chord in me.

Figured out later that it smells almost exactly like Chopard's Casmir, An old favorite. Except that Burberry Women is the more subtle & refined cousin.

This is class. Not horsey upperclass plum in the mouth type class, just smooth, self confidence, I calmly am what I am presence.
This is the kind of fragrance that evokes a kind of ideal life to me. The woman wearing this would be relaxed and wealthy and possess whole stack of fine cashmere jumpers and self assured quiet style.
That probably sounds weird but there is something about the comforting non clumsy vanilla here that just screams out RELAX lets go walk our dogs in the park. I smell great !!!
idyllic and comforting yet individual.
in my top five for sure

It's a nice perfume, but on me it doesn't bring out any of the fruits. It's just a strict, dry musk composition. On my mother it's different. Sweet and quite yummy!

The perfume receives an opposite review to my stance on Burberry Brit. A lovely perfume, I found it suitable for both night and day wear. It was just 'different' plus I really like the bottle which was very smooth to the hold.

This is my classic autumn office scent since the 90s.

A perfect light/fresh vanilla for the day, thanks the peach.

A very conforting and refined scent. It´s noticeable, but light, elegant, decent.

Burberry Woman will follow me for many and many years still.

Very Lovely!

for those who are shopping around and comparing prices, i picked up a 1 oz edp at marshall's for $25.

i get a fruity first impression, but then there's a lingering after smell that's a little chemical (i think it's the peach/apricot) that reminds me of my dentist's office. then i realized that this is probably the perfume that my dentist uses. it would have been a nice one but i think of the dentist office every time i spray it, so i'm gonna have to pass on this one.

This has been my go-to scent since 1995. The strongest notes on me are peach, vanilla, black currant, and musk. I use two sprays and it apparently blends in well with my skin because after a few hours, I won't smell it on myself, but other people comment that I smell nice. Also, they never know I'm wearing Burberry until I tell them, which I like. (I don't really want to be a walking advertisement for whatever scent I'm wearing.) I would label it as an oriental/floral rather than a fruity/floral, though. A beautiful, classy fragrance.

Bought this for reasonable at Ross, and it's one I have been tempted to buy for a while and the price was right. I get a light floral smell, but mostly peaches, vanilla and then powder. Someone described it as canned peaches, and that is right--heavier, darker peach vs sweet, fresh fuzzy peaches. I wasn't a fan of canned peaches as a kid, so that kind of haunts me. The dry down is powdery vanilla; mild, sweet and somehow dense. Close to the skin on me, lasted about 4 hours.

Tested this on one arm and Burberry Brit on the other arm and this Burberry did not stand a chance.

Tried a spritz of this at the mall; wasn't sure I would like it by the descriptions, but it was too tempting. I am not a fan of heavy florals; this is not heavy, but there are floral notes. It quickly dried down to a soft very powdery vanilla on me. It was pleasant and inoffensive (for which I was glad), but not sure I really "liked" it.

This smells a lot like my signature fragrance, moschino funny, and I do like this but there is a syrupy note of canned peaches that is a bit off putting to me. It does smell quite good with it's sweet fruity musky goodness, but it reminds me so much of canned peaches in the background that I can't enjoy it fully. Also since I am comparing burberry to my favorite perfume I am probably being a bit harsh since I adore my moschino funny which is perfect in every way to me!

Great for summertime and can be worn anywhere, burberry is fruity and sweet without being too in your face. I can see why this has so many fans!

I will be sticking to my signature but have to tip my hat to burberry for it is very lovely in it's own way :)

This is such an amazing fragrance! It's the definition of "feminine" without smelling like an old lady or soapy or heady and overly floral and iritating. It's warm, subtle and cozy. It's a perfect date scent and for cuddling up to that special someone. At first it's strong but after a few minutes it dries down and it's so nice and tender and sticks close to the skin. It's bright and soothing and comforting.

I think more younger women who are under the assumption that this is an old lady perfume should definitely try it out because they will be pleasently surprised.

When i first smell this i thought that this could be my new signature scent and i fell in love! It is a warm and elegant scent for all ages. It has sweetness of fruity coctail and makes me feel happy and relaxed. The combination of vanilla,peach and apricot is really awesome. I think this is for people who like fruity-oriental fragnances. And of course this fragnance must be the definition of "Classic".

I can smell all the notes (vanilla, peach, apricot, musk, cedar, jasmine), but nothing is blaring. It's neither overly fruity nor floral, it's just right! Wonderfully appealing fragrance, it's light and fresh! From first spray to the dry down, the creamy vanilla maintained its gentle sweetness and the soft musk and hints of all the other fruity and floral notes just meld so well. This is definitely what "pretty" would smell like.

Sprayed this on me over 2 hours ago and still going strong. Now one of my favorites!

Update: I sprayed it on me before bed time and 6 hours after I can still smell it on my skin. I am very impressed.

I have this love-hate relationship with this perfume, and i can't believe i never wrote anything on it.

I LOVE it because it's not overwhelming,modest, but elegant. To my nose, it's not anything fruity or sweet, but rather to be powder-y and bland with a hint of flower scent.

I hate it because it lasts not for long, and i face the risk of running out of it. It takes a ton of spritzes to get desirable as in noticeable scent otherwise I'd stay with any cologne.

Another thing I hate from this perfume is, it never smells the same.The opening is, okay, they're all the same. But the next 2 hours and up, it works funny with my body chemistry. Sometimes I get powdery, smooth, elegant scent linger surround me. The other day I get this flowery scent which I find annoys me. Some lucky times, I get this woody-warm-yet calming scent that I just cannot describe. I dont know how this happen, but everytime I spray this on, I always have my fingers crossed.

Even so, I still love love this perfume lol

--EDIT--
I notice that I wrote 'bland' over there. It's not bland as in 'boring' or 'plain', no, not at all. It's I'm here. You don't have to look at me, nor paying attention on me, but you WILL,unfortunately'-bland. I really ruin this review,but I hope you get my point. It's a pretty fragrance that's like a hard-to-get-girl.

For some reason, this one works in reverse for me.

I smell vanilla and cedar first, then the whole thing turns into red licorice with the slightest plastic doll skin tinge.

I don't get any peach or apricot (which I love) so I'm a little disappointed.

It's ok...I'll use up my mini, but I won't be re-purchasing.

A dual dimensional frag which is a journey and experience; both serious then simple, experienced then niave, floral and fruity with lashings of red candy..

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 45 mins. 9 inch projection. Class, Class, Class. Not upper gentry, but the scent of a mid-mature professional woman who has been successfull and she knows it. Too forward thinking to be cocky or worried about prejudice, her day revolves around targets and objectives and bettering herself. This is brilliant, ages 38 -52 ,and lovely and strong, yet not overly heavy or damp in any way and not in your face projection but easily enough to be noticed. So balanced - a floral done well.

45 mins 3.5 hours. 9 inch projection. OMG, what happened? - this morphes under your very nose to a youthful candy scent - smells like red tangy laces which I used to eat as a kid - Ages 16 -24. Still great, just in a different way. The projection gets more subtle and alluring and its such a generic basic candy scent now, yet I want to eat my arm.!!! I love it, this was such fun wearing it. The wafting projection had me in a spell.

3.5 hours - 4.5 hours - 7 inch projection. Now a little like Gucci Guilty Intense Homme or Female. Unisex and lovely

4.5 hours - 6 hours - 2 inch projection and getting more floral

6- 8 hours. Close to skin yet intense on the skin. A little bit of smokiness pops in but nothing thats ruins it, so don't worry. The scent lasted to the next day on my skin and it stays on clothes for a very long time also

What a journey. Never smelt a drop of vanilla

How could they put this frag in such a booring, dull and souless bottle? Get it in a better bottle, jazz it up a bit, re-advertise and market it better - I bet many are put of by the dull flacon and not so nice colour of juice

Good

Burberry Woman is probably my favourite perfume. I initially smelled it on a friend. I asked her if she was wearing Burberry Brit (which I love, too) because there was something similar, though not quite the same, about it. The I sampled it and found that I loved the warm, creamy, peachy, woody scent even better than Brit!
Burberry woman is a mild perfume that dosn't overwhelm and almost reminds me of warm skin. On my friend, the musk came out more, on me it smells more creamy and woody.
I feel like this is more of a late fall/winter/early spring perfume and can see how it was developed in rainy Britain because it really does make you feel cosy and warm on damp, dreary days! I live in a rainy city by the ocean and find that just spraying this makes me feel warmer and cozier!

I just purchased another bottle of this :) I only wear it during fall/winter. Its warm, sweet & woody. A sophisticated vanilla scent. I purchased my first bottle in 2004 & received many compliments every time I wore it. Only downside is the very weak staying power, lasts only a few hours, even when sprayed on my clothes.

I truly enjoy this scent, and it's very versatile in terms of use during the day/night and all seasons, in my opinion. My only complaint is that it does not seem to last very long on my skin. I have more success getting it to last longer by spritzing it on the collar of my shirt (or scarf when it's cold).

I love this scent,one of my favorites ever!! I remenber my mom wearing this scent when I was a child!! I mean it wasn´t burberry it was another peachy fragrance,but it was exacly the same scent.. I was dying to find a simmilar and I did!! The only sad thing for me is that this doesn´t leave a trail when you walk,it´s crazy because when I wear this it´s so strong,I can smell this all the time wherever I move,but others don´t seem to smell as much as I do,unless they are really really close to me,wish I usually don´t like those kind of perfumes but since I love this so much I won´t reject this!!And another good thing is that it isn´t so expensive.. I love love this peach fragrance,I just don´t understand how can somoane dislike this.. Oh well,it´s better because that way,I won´t be smelling like too many people :)

From the reviews l have noticed that some have worn it with the feeling that they do not smell at all. As l have read, if the perfume is good, the wearer does not smell it but the people around get it. l don't have this one yet. l have tried it a couple of times. l like that it smells fruity-chocolate on me. But sometimes l get a candle smell don't know why...

This VERY much resembles Coty's Vanilla Musk. So much so I sprayed each one on one of my wrists, and can barely tell them apart. Only difference is, Burberry has the ever so slight peach note in it. Other than that, they have the EXACT same vibe going on.

They truly are so similar one should go for the Vanilla Musk as it is much cheaper, and the Burberry peach note is so slight I don't think you'll even miss it.

Both are pleasant and more of a skin scent.

This is a beautiful, unique perfume. I'd say it's a winter perfume as its warm, along with the peach, it's got a spicy note to it. While it's sophisticated & feminine it's not an 'old lady perfume' - I'd wear it to a job interview or a dinner date. It's just so different from other perfumes I have tried, love it & the guys seem to like it to.

I'd had my eye on this perfume for a few years and never got around to buying it until very recently. I always loved the smell. It's creamy and peachy. Although orange is not listed as one of the notes, I get an orange creamsicle kind of smell. I love that it's sweet and gourmand, but very grown-up. I hope Burberry never stops making it, it's a classic.

I cannot make up my mind about this one! It's a scent with a LOT of personality, to say the least. It's got very strong cedar, sandalwood, and amber notes, combined with a slight apricot scent. It's a very "hippy chick" type of fragrance, but there's also an urban hint to it. I think I like it, but I guess it would depend on my mood. Perhaps not a perfume for every day.

I am wearing this wonderful scent today and it has an uplifting effect as well as a soothing one. Though it has little to do with the aromatherapy properties of natural essential lavender oil (technically speaking), it has a similar effect on me. True that is resembles Fancy Love by J.S... I love to layer both together to get sweet and fruity whiffs of pure femininity all day long. My skin being a sent sponge requires rather potent fragrances with much staying power: this is one of my favorites. Milky and touched with fruity vanilla , PURE YUMMM!
QUOTING CARLA: 'This is one of my "go to" fragrances. An upscale perfume beginning with the eruption of fresh fruit then a subtle simmering of the sensual woody florals and then the final stage ending with calming effect of vanilla and musk. This winning combination of modern and traditional notes is my preferred Burberry scent ' ... GOOD DAY ALL!

One word keeps coming to mind when I smell Burberry: preppy. I find this fragrance very generic and very "department store", something you would get a whiff of at Macy's, right around the mens polo shirts and belts, so very cliché, unrecognizable, and boring. It is NOT feminine, nor imaginative, nor whimsical in any way at all, just generic and ... well, preppy. Regrettably, I happen to own a bottle (received as a gift, alas). Isn't life ironic?

I just recieved my bottle that I ordered online! Yipee! I remember when I first smelled this perfume as a little girl. It was in my aunts bedroom and I took a whiff i remember hating it! Smelled too sweet and like medicine to my little nose. Now I retried due to the rave reviews I read and let me say I am NOT dissapointed at ALL! Its now my absoltute favorite perfume in the world. I think im going to make it my signature for a while. to me it smells sweet but not like candy sweet. It smells warm and cozy sweet like a peach and berry pie with a large scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. YUMMY! or carmalized pears in a bourboun sauce with vanilla cream. It's just a comforting scent and i totally get its popularity now. I bought the largest bottle and before I purchased I wondered if it was too much but now I realized I NEED this. I love the simplistic packaging and the warm amber color of the liquid. It is a skin scent and doesn't have that much sillage making it a snuggle perfume. People will only smell it when they are snuggle close. sometimes i can't smell it on me but I sprayed my shirt with it and I couldn't resist smelling it whenever I opened my closet. Delicious. I now think I greatly prefer this to my beloved burberry brit. I hope they never discontinue this because if they do I will definitely stock up!

I'm definitely a fan of Burberry but it is something I can not put my finger on with Burberry Women Classic. At first the fragrance is bitter and sour like. Next scent reminiscent of something that is dead!! Horrible!!!!!

After about 20 minutes appears a lovely aroma of apricot mixed with a sharp scent of peach. A second later reveals a more subdued tone of peach blended with apricot, jasmine and a soothing tone of vanilla .... sooo beautiful, gentle, soothing and harmonious. The scent is and remains feminine and timeless in any context without taking up too much space, but still gets noticed and remembered. The scent stays long about 8 hours and it smells just as adorable all time. I often get comments when I use this perfume. Absolute a favorite!

Jag är absolut ett fan av Burberry men det är något jag inte kan sätta fingret på gällande Burberry Women Classic. När jag först sprayar den så luktar det bittert, surliknande. Nästa doft påminner om något som har dött!!!! Fruktansvärt. Ytterligare efter ca 20 minuter framträder en ljuvlig doft av aprikos blandat med en skarp doft av persika. Strax därefter dämpas den skarpa persikodoften och en mer dämpad ton av persika framträder blandat med aprikos, jasmine samt en lugnande ton av vanilj .... såååå vackert, milt, lugnande och harmoniskt. Doften är och förblir kvinnlig och tidlös i alla sammanhang utan att sticka ut, samtidigt som den blir uppmärksammad och ihågkommen. Doften sitter kvar länge ungefär 8 timmar och den luktar lika ljuvligt hela tiden. Jag får ofta kommentarer när jag använder denna parfym. Absolut en favorit!!

I am slowly becoming a fan of Burberry. I really like this one and Burberry Brit. I purchased the body care online and now I'm just waiting for my order. In the meantime, this really is a fantastic aroma. I had sampled it in the past but I really didn't care for it then. I'm always game to give a scent a second chance and I'm glad I did. I agree that it is unique, but not in a weird way. It's cozy and warm which is perfect for cool, crisp fall days or curled up on the couch in front of a fireplace on a cold, snowy winter day. With that being said, I think the aroma would be nice for the warmer months too because it has a bright, cheerful appeal as well. The lasting power is fantastic on my skin, but it's not loud or obnoxious smelling. I can't believe I didn't like this at one time! Oh well, as we get older, our tastes change and I'm really glad because this is such a nice frag.

UPDATE: I ordered the body lotion, which is true to the actual perfume. The lasting power is wonderful and I can still smell it on me the next day. This is such a comforting aroma, but I'm not sure if I would wear it in the summer, as I stated above. It might be a little too heavy, but we'll see. So far, I'm really loving this!

I think this is a PHENOMENAL perfume. I tend to like fresh and slightly sweet scents (Eclat d'arpege, Dior Addict for Life) during the day and summer and sweet and heavier/musky scents (Flowerbomb, Coco Mademoiselle, Crystal Noir) at night and in winter. Either way I tend to like scents that make more of a statement. This is definitely different, it's a subtle statement. This is super feminine without being in your face. It's subtle without being boring. To me it is sexy without trying. I think it would work during day/night, throughout the year but I may be wrong. I feel the same way about Eclat d'arpege but this has WAY BETTER longevity and is more warm than fresh which I JUST LOVE. The first half hour was okay but then it just developed into this heavenly scent. I find it beautifully elegant and understated. I never would have imagined Burberry's signature scent to be like this...so pleasantly surprised. I think that this would be a super safe blind buy or gift for just about anyone. It doesn't have distinct notes as in I can't personally make out what it is that I like, yet it doesn't smell artificial either. I think it's a classic type scent without being of the Chanel No. 5 genre. This very well might be my next signature scent. LOVE

UPDATE: i ADORE this scent but I REALLY REALLY REALLY wish the sillage were better! The longevity is great (I get compliments on it long after) and I remember that I only sprayed my wrist when I first tested it, which was around noon, went home, the next day I took a shower and I could still smell it. But I bought this based on that smell, the smell on my wrist. But now that I wear it daily, I cannot smell it at all really (even when I sniff my wrist). The worst part is that the only part I really do smell is the beginning which I could definitely live without (a lot of wood smells that are not my thing)...but that GORGEOUS dry-down that I love is what I just don't smell on me. Sooo disappointed.

I love the smell of peaches but I find that in many fragrances they turn out to be overly sweet or too watery. The peach note in Burberry is done just right. It is delicious but not sickly sweet. It is delicate but not too light. Burberry is pretty, cozy but also classy. It is great for those days when I would like to smell nice but I do not want to make a strong statement.

I love the opening of this scent and I actually think that I smell very nice green apple note along with the peach. The woody notes come through right away and to my nose the scent stays linear with a lovely woody-peach-vanilla combo. I can see that many reviewers compare this scent to Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson and I agree that two of them have similarities. I find that Burberry a bit more on a woody side and Fancy Love is more on a gourmand side.

Overall score is 7.5/10. I do like this scent. Somehow it makes me feel happy and pretty and…oh so peachy.

The sillage is medium and longevity is 5 hours on my skin. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for vanilla and peach fragrances.

This fantastic parfum is pure dessert! …. If you’re looking for a safe, sweet, feminine and elegant parfum this is the one!
At the beginning I catch some peaches and subtle pears, and then they blend with a delicious wave of pure classy and expensive vanilla. I must be honest the rest it’s just clean vanilla, vanilla, vanilla . It stays close to the skin and lasts FOREVER!!!. I would buy it again! Very good! Very romantic!

Not just fruity-floral - needs to be experienced definitely as I didn't think I would like it. On my skin gives a bit more musk and sandalwood and that’s suits my nose just fine.

Amazing, this smells the same as Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson. It really does. Without the champagne note. Very very nice fragrance. I'm not buying it as for now, because I own the JS one, but if that one runs out, this is the next on the list.

Amazing, this perfume has been around for how long? And I'm only first smelling it now???!? lol

I love it! What's so strange is I normally very much dislike peach on me, perhaps it's the apricot that I'm enjoying, or one of my favorite fruit notes pear, I think it's causing the peach to be much more tame and creamy along with the vanilla of course. The blackbery for me acts almost like iris/oris bringing an almost cool quality (if that makes any sense)

I normally dont like gourmand scents , prety just not for me, however this is one of the exceptions.. while I dont like smelling all 'gourmand' I do absolutely love those grown up perfumes that just teader on being ''foody''.

Overalall, I'd have to say this is prety unique I've honestly neer smelled anything similar... it also pulls of being sexy yet innocent, Classy yet never boring. I'd say this is an all purpose perfume, great for work , play and casual... better suited for colder months however I'd have no problem wearing this on a cool summer night :)

Longevity is decent for me about 5-6 hours.. the drydown is gorgeous

overall I give this 8.5/10

This one was my signature scent for a very long time. It is very light and clean, and smells just wonderful. I love the peach and vanilla notes, they work great with my body chemistry. I like wearing it out in the evening time when the sun goes down and a little bit coolness present in the air, the smell develops into such a sexy aroma! I also wear it to work at the office ocasionally and receive many compliments from male co-workers on how good I smell. This one I think would be best for younger women in their 20's - 30's. Although my preferences changed over time I still love it and it remains one of my favorites.

I loved this one on my co-worker, tested it and bought it. The fruits were nice but there was a lingering note from beginning to end that just turned the whole composition to an oily, synthetic smell on me. I kept it and retried it again to no avail. Just did not complement me. Passed it along to someone else in the end. And I love peach.

I really do enjoy this creamy apricot concoction. Perfect for an autumn day! Today I layered it with the woody floral Hermes Eau Claire des Marveilles and it turned out to be a great combination. It added a bit of kick to the sweet cream of the Burberry just for something different!

Peaches, spice, and everything nice!!!!

Burberry Woman is a perfectly cozy, sexy in my sweater sort of fragrance. It's a true autumnal scent that I prefer to wear on a cold rainy day.

It opens with peach, apricot, and fizzy champagne like notes. There's also a soft green element. It has a comforting sweetness that most noses credit vanilla for. While I do get the vanilla, I also detect beautiful sun drenched honey and a bit of toffee. Jasmine and sandalwood offer a striking softness that makes me want to curl up next to a fire with a book.

Burberry is wonderful for a woman who can command attention with just a whisper.

My last sampled fragrance from Burberry - the first Burberry I love:). Nice, happy, creamy, comforting, all what I want in this intemperate weather. The first half hour is a creamy-fruity dessert, I feel more pear than peach, it's like a more grown-up version of Incanto Shine and I have a little 'Allure-impression', too. After a while there's a gentle cedar-sandalwood-vanilla cloud around my skin - fortunately no sharp musk here - just lovely. Somehow it reminds me of my beloved Cerruti 1881, however the two scent has not too much in common (maybe the cedar and vanilla), only the cosiness. I don't feel it sexy or elegant, I would wear it for my own pleasure. Sillage is not so good on my skin (I'm wondering that someone feel it too much and disturbing - but my skin is a scent-eater...), longevity is average. Love it.

The dupe for this is Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love. Actually, I enjoy Fancy Love a lot more. It's much more creamy and pleasant, whereas Burberry can have some rather sharp-cornered floral notes. Still, a VERY lovely perfume.

Well, I can say for certain this one is not my thing. I'm not sure if it's any one particular note or the combination, but this smells absolutely overwhelming and horrible on me. All I get is this strong smell that reminds me of the scent older ladies wore in the 80s-90s when they tried to cover up the fact that they smoked (By this, I mean some of my grandmother's friends. Not overgeneralizing, it really does remind me of them).

There was also no change for me at all. The drydown smelled exactly like the first spritz. My chemistry does not do well with this at all.

Guess I am just in the minority. Bummer :-(

I agree, it is a great fall fragrance. I find it soft, gentle, and comforting, like a cozy nook by the fire on a rainy or snowy day, reading a book. I agree with Sky: there creamy, cashmere aura to this scent that comes with the vanilla ( obsession-like IMHO )drydown. It is not offensive to my coworkers and friends and by hubby loves it since it is sweet but not in a fruity or candied way. It lingers on and on though I myself no longer smell it: people comment on how lovely i smell (10 hrs after application). wishing I could smell it too! The peach surprises at first like a champagne fizz melting deliciously with the apricot, pear and black currant . A perfect opening for a classy warm and sensual drydown. I find it to be close to the skin though i get comments on the sillage it leaves: no one is indeffirent to this frag! good day!

The first time I tried this I hated it. Something metallic and synthetic that really never worked no matter how many times I tried. But at the moment Im pregnant, so I thought maybe with my change of body chemistry I could try some of my old scents that never warmed up to me and see if any of them like me better. Very glad I did, because this smells very nice. It is comforting and sweet, and playful. Its a crisp fall evening outdoors, and a fireplace to curl up near afterwards. Love it.

I adore Burberry Classic! I got this as a gift from my husband who I must admit has very good taste(he never goes wrong and chooses things I wouldn't have chosen for myself). It is a fall scent to me. Even though I think it can be worn year round, it brings fall to mind for me. I can smell the fruity opening all day, especially peach and pear and it mixes very nicely with the jasmine and cedar. It would last all day even through my after work workouts and still smell lovely. Very cozy and close. Even when I don't find my self wearing it on myself I still like to smell it. I have been known to spray my pillow or my puppy. That might sound bad but I like this so much I just have to smell it even when I don't feel like wearing it. If I ever finish my bottle, I may have to buy another bottle just so I always have it.

I asked my (now ex-) boyfriend for a bottle of Burberry London for my birthday a few years ago but he managed to get the wrong one and so I received Burberry Woman instead. Being a nice person I smiled and said "thank you darling". A few days later I opened it, sniffed it and decided it was probably wearable so I kept it. Oh wow, am I glad I had a dozy bf?! Burberry Woman is so lovely, soft but strong and very feminine. The sweet vanilla and fruits are a perfect combination for cold weather. Wearing this always makes me feel happier, warmer and sexier.
Sillage is ok, longevity is amazing- 12 hours + on my skin!

First time I tried this perfume it was winter. Perfect fragrance to bring comfort for the cold season. The smell is as classic as the Burberry trenchcoat (I know that Burberry Body is supposed to capture that based on the releases surrounding it, but I find that this one is the classic Burberry by all means). The smell is sweet but has a smoky, sensual edge to it that almost makes me feel like I am strolling through a rainy Greenwich Village, trying to figure out which cafe I should sit down at and work on my screenplay...and who knows, maybe something unexpected will happen? It's the perfume for the classic woman, mysterious but approachable, classy but not uptight. Just right! Instant classic, instant charm, absolutely irresistible. Two thumbs up, the fragrance I will be wearing this autumn.

The difference between Burberry and Fancy Love is almost indistinguishable! I swapped my bottle of Fancy Love so I could get a bottle of Burberry mainly to compare them. I think that Burberry is a little more subtle, not quite so sweet, and has a slightly tarter note- the black currant. Fancy Love could be cloying at times, even though I liked it very much. Burberry seems just right. Can't stop smelling myself now. I love them both, but Burberry may be up by one point! Sexy and comforting at the same time. I have the urge to layer this with Eclat D'Arpege and see what happens...

I love the top and heart notes of this perfume. It's a lovely scent...until it dries down. The bottom notes are very, very sweet - syrupy. The scent on me actually becomes more robust as the day goes on, to the point where the overly sweet smell makes me sick.

It was a gift to me and i did'nt like it because it had nothing exciting. I even did'nt feel it on my skin and smell it at all! from the first 15 minutes.
The amazing is that everytime i wear it, men and women, ask me what is this wonderful smell. Everybody else except me, can smell this, for hours. Ofcourse this is flattering, although I can't understanging it. Very often, I'm wearing other favourite fragrances I have, and nobody notices them. Strange??

I have wanted this for a year and finally purchased a small bottle. It will definitely be my signature scent come fall. The fruit, vanilla and flowers are all delicately, elegantly rendered. It's warm and comforting but still feminine. It's not too sweet, too bright or too flowery.

When I wear this I feel like I am sitting in a coffee shop in London, drinking earl grey tea and writing a book, all while wrapped in a cashmere sweater.

It's just perfect for me- but everyone is different. I encourage you to smell, smell, smell till you find the one that works for you. For me this does it.

I won't wear it every day, since I don't want to get bored with it, and I have other perfumes I love. But it is my happy scent, the one that reminds me slightly of the vanilla fields my mother wore when I was a child, but that has a distinct style that is all mine.

Perfect.

This is noce. It's a touch sweet for my taste, especially in the opening. I like it later, during the drydown when it mellows and stays very close to the skin. It is classy, it is ladylike. I do wear it from time to time. It's not an everyday scent for me.

I have always liked this one on other people. It's soft but distinct. I pick up the notes of peach, apricot, pear with a hint of spice and vanilla - all very well blended together.

It doesn't wear so well on me - within an hour I'm only left with a shadow of apricot a spice, still pretty but mostly over.

Have they tweaked this in recent years? Even a friend of mine who has always worn this is wondering. It seems less smooth these days, with a bit of a sharp alcoholic edge to it. Sigh.

Update: Now that summer is fading and temperatures are slightly cooler, this is wearing a bit better and longer on my skin. And the aforementioned edge is gone. Love.

This is a clean fresh scent. It's a vanilla scent but not overbearingly vanilla. Its not quite and overbearing sweet vanilla, but rather a clean peach vanilla. Quite the summer scent. I dont think this can be qualified as a day or night time fragrance..its can be worn any time, any season whenever you need a mood lifter. This makes me feel positive and fresh.

Omg yes I agree with Norgirl, this perfume is VERY SIMILAR to Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love!! So if you want a cheaper copy of this, you can buy Fancy Love =) I can barely tell the difference! (Probably just a difference in one note or sillage or longevity...but smells the same)

this is a cosy treat :) i m so into vanilla this days , and the mix whit fruts , Peach , apricot and pear in this is so delightful.
starts off a bit alcoholy but just the fisrst minuts. then it dryes into the skin and makes a big smile on my face .
easy to wear anyday or anytime .
the vanilla is very nice , prominant mixed whit Peach and pear , this are the strongest notes imo, the Jasmin is there , but im suprised to see that it is not in the opening notes , i can smell it in the opening , but not for very long.

this is very much like Jessica s Fancy Love , But this one is stronger , and a bit less powdery. i like this better actualy.
a real gem :)

This must be one of the most beautiful and softly wrapping fragrances ever. Apples, peaches, berries and creamy vanilla that don't invade the room you're in - this is a rather rare case!It certainly has this thick greenish-ambery vibe that some of the 90's fragrances have, but it stays away from anithing overbaring.The cedar-vanilla drydown is sultry and cozy.
However I think Burberry have changed it to a somehow more dilluted version. It is more watery and the color of the liquid inside is light green instead of thick yellow amber. It's not dramatic, but I suggest you look for the older edition because it has a more opulent aroma.
PS: It tends to make my nose 'numb' and I can't smell it after 4-5 hours, but I know it's there, because I've been complimented on it numerous times. So great staying power and reserved sillage. I already reviewed this, but we're having a rather cold week in the middle of the summer and I'm revisiting this superb scent.

Love this one!

It's been called a good scent for fall and winter but for me it smells like spring and a slowly blooming garden! I bought it as a new scent for the new summer I'm expecting a lot from!

The scent is very original. I can't remember any other parfume that would have smelled the same. It's not straight fruity or floral. It's feminine but in a fresh way. The vanilla smells lovely on me and mixed with pear and jasmine it turns out nice and sweet instead of dusty.

One thing I'm missing is a hint of lily of the valley (one of my favorite scents) and unfortunately the scent disappears from my skin pretty quickly. I can't smell it in the evening at all and I need to add it during the day.

Even tho I adore the scent I have to say that the bottle is plain boring. It's very practical as I need to travel a lot but still it's boring. The color of the liquid doesn't fit the scent at all.

Lovely lovely lovely! Burberry is a warm vanilla-pear-peach scent that's perfect for rainy Autumn days. It's ideal for office/day wear, since it's one of those perfumes that won't induce a headache. I hope to wear this perfume someday, while strolling the streets of London, preferably on a rainy and foggy day... that's how I picture this wonderful fragrance.

Burberry Classic is a wonderful, casual fragrance that I love to wear when I want something mellow and comforting. It has a gorgeous ambery-peach note, although I certainly wouldn't call this a fruity-floral fragrance. Definitely oriental and woodsy in my mind, with a hint of fruit in the mix. It is warm and cozy, with lots of musk and cedar, and just a hint of vanilla. It's actually not very sweet, and that lends it a nice unisex feel. I smell marigold in this (although it's not listed), which I think adds to the uniqueness of this perfume.

When I first bought this, I found it a little sharp on my skin some days. Either my chemistry or my nose has changed, as I don't have that problem anymore. It's a really nice balance between the musky, woodsy notes, and the cozy peach and vanilla. Part of it could be that I moved to a more temperate, humid climate and this perfume seems to warm up really nicely on my skin now.

The only downside with this fragrance is that I do have to spray a lot of it in order to pick up on it. Even then it does stay pretty close to the skin. Staying power is quite good though.

Overall a really warm, cuddly and classy fragrance that I plan on having in my collection a long time!

Starts out as a slightly fruity vanilla musk, pleasant and polite, not too sweet, not too strong, superbly easy to wear. However, the fruit seems more like apple than peach or currant. After about an hour I can smell a little bit of jasmine, but it’s subtle and goes perfectly with the other notes.

The scent stays close to the skin and is pretty much linear once the jasmine hits. It’s amazingly tenacious given how light the scent seems overall. I would classify this as a vanilla skin musk. I doubt that anyone would be offended by second-hand sillage from it. It’s the sort of perfume that you could just pick up without thinking and spray on without worrying about whether it was appropriate for your activities and venue. It would be there all day, making a subdued but clear statement, mostly for your own nose. The perfect "default" fragrance.

Well, I have never tried this simply because I don't like the brand (it has connotations in this country - they have been like the Tommy Hilfiger of English brands until recently - a bit sporty, a bit trashy) Anyway, after reading the reviews I decided to give it a go. I tried it straight after Tresor and I'm afraid that this one lost. To me there is a definate Basil note, though it's not listed. Basil leaves and a watery peach. The sillage and longevity are weedy and overall if I want a peach hit, it will be Tresor on my want list.

I was on the fence about this Burberry fragrance at first, but now I realized that this is an awesome scent! This is beautiful. It's a memory perfume- it will definitely be a scent that will bring me back and relish in a certain time in my life. I like it in the Winter but am excited to try it in the fall because the bottle just looks like Autumn! I love the warm gold color of the juice and the curviness of the bottle is so pretty! The fragrance is warm with prominent notes on me of vanilla, pear and musk and stays forever on my scarves! It is slightly bitter at first and is close to the skin but it stays forever- and trasnforms into a scent that is sweet, warm and enveloping.
EDIT: I actually do find this fragrance rather dull and lifeless. It has a stale quality to it and no note in the fragrance dominates and this has terrible sillage which is why I can't really find a reason to wear this.

So classy and wearable- and not everyone will be wearing it! I've been recommending this one to non- scent savvy friends for years..absolutely glorious on my skin, a warm, feminine sandalwood. The peach balances it beautifully, doesn't seem overly sweet at all; the jasmine/floral aspect is incredibly subtle. The projection and longevity are perfect..wore one squirt of this to work today and received many compliments! Surely one of the most underappreciated gems out there and my favorite Burberry by far.

Thumbs up.

It is a simple, well constructed perfume ... but that is maybe not doing it justice. Burberry is just "there", close to the skin, lingering warm and elegant. I can make out the peach, a round heart phase, and a soft, non-demanding dry down. This is a scent to wear in close spaces, at work, it does not offend, it is barely noticeable. It is fragrant like a good body lotion or skin cream, just soft and there...

I could see myself starting the day with Burberry and switching over to Boucheron Women at night. The two seem to harmonize well together, Boucheron being the more opulent type of scent.

There are more professional ways to describe them, I am only going by what I have experienced.

It lasts a long time on my skin. I put it on yesterday and after having showered, I still smell a small sublt trace of Burberry.

After testing this perfume it seems to me that peach and jasmine are the perfect couple. This perfume would be a rather fresh fruity if it wasn’t for the warm vanilla note that gives depth to the ripe juicy peach. Though musk and cedar are among the base notes there’s nothing musky or soapy about this fragrance.

This is not the perfume you would pick for nightclubbing, Cosmpolitans and a little black dress. I find it more suitable for a summer afternoon in some romantic setting where you’ll be sipping Bellini with your loved one. IMO this scent is romantic, not sexy.

I don’t think this perfume has so much sillage, it stays close to the skin and therefore it would be perfect to use in places where loud perfumes would be inappropriate.

In 3 words: ROMANTIC - FEMININE - PEACH

I accidentally bought this. A friend was wearing what she said was Burberry and I loved it. So I ran out and bought some. Wrong Burberry. On me it is a very mediocre scent, sort of like a plastic doll smell. No warm caramel and peaches etc. I finally bought what she was wearing, Burberry Brit, and I love that.

My cousin wears this perfume and it smells nice, so i decided to buy it online. I have checked the bottle, box, code, etc and i'm sure it's original. The weird thing is it does smell like the one that my cousin own, but something musty about it. I don't know how to explain, it totally smells unpleasant. Maybe i got a bad bottle :( I really wanted to love this one though. I might use it for my dogs since i have no reason to keep it on my dresser drawer. The bottle looks cheap anyway.

This baby is one of my all time favourites!

Timeless, ageless, elegant, feminine, cosy, sensual, perfect for any occassion... Just like all other Burberry fragrances, it is classy.

It is soft, yummy, creamy, easy to wear and when you wear it you just feel so good. Smells like peaches plunged into vanilla combined with beautiful jasmines. Obviously one of the best of the Floral-Fruity group of scents with a perfect touch of vanilla.

It is NOT the kind of scent that people hate easily. Because it is not ordinary, cloying or overwhelming. It is something you can readily fall in love with and enjoy wearing a lot.

Appropriate for daytime wear on any seasons.
Its sillage is GREAT and lasts FOR HOURS on my skin.

Simply EXCELLENT...

This is one perfume I'm very sad to part with, because it's delightful! On me, it's primarily peach-jasmine-vanilla, but nicely balanced and layered with complexity. It's very difficult to describe. It isn't sweet, it isn't spicy, it isn't powdery, it isn't juicy. I would describe it as creamy, warm, and sheer. Like the fluffy golden crumbles on top of a not-too-sweet peach cobbler. It's a daytime scent that works in all seasons, but I really love it in fall.

The deal-breaker for me with Burberry Woman is the longevity and sillage. It just would not stay on me, no matter what I did. Within two hours, the sillage would die down to the merest whisper on my skin, and skin-scents have never appealed to me. This frustrates me to no end, but I'll chalk it down to chemistry and regretfully move on.

I have done a summer break, but now it's time to start using this lovely fragrance again. There is something special about Burberry Woman. The combination of tart fruit, vanilla and wood is stunning. The longevity is impressive. A tiny spritz in the morning lasts a whole day on skin. A woonderful fragrance.

One of the "memory bringing" perfumes. Wonderful trip to Canada and Portland. It is may be why for me it is also accociated with colder autumn days and beauty of the yellow and red leaves...Vanilla and peaches...joyful and happy scent. So cozy to spray it on your scarf and to sniff it while you walking outside in a rain....

I'm sorry I used to just walk past this boring masculine bottle. Boy was I missing out! I adore Fancy Love, but Burberry might just replace it in my collection now! These two smell SO alike- soft, peaches & apricots in cream, honey, and jasmines (all present until the end). Good sillage and exceptional durability on BOTH. But after wearing Burberry, I notice now, how linear F.L. is. Burberry has some interesting chapters to it. On first spray, I actually get a fresh burst of wet green grass and blooming jasmines after a downpour; but it smells warm-like the sun just came out. That evaporates within 5-10 minutes, and then I'm wrapped in a soft blanket of that cozy-peachy-sweetness. The dry-down, 6-8 hours later, still has some peach in it, but the vanilla, musk, and wood are taking center stage now. On me, by nightfall, Burberry morphs into it's own night-time version of itself -a 2fer! Burberry is a mandatory "for test" for any of you that haven't yet!

I do not know why I have't tried this before.
Burberry Woman is amazing!
The fruit is there (mostly apricot and peaches) perfectly blended ... but BW is not Fruity Floral for my nose ... more oriental. .. and a really good one.
It is lovely, warm and soft ... a bit sweet, a little musk plus the cedar. Not at all overwhelming.
Very comfortable and womanly.

Perfect for fall and winter

Burberry Women is a truly beautiful fragrance, probably the best of the house (close call with Burberry London). To my nose, it's a vanilla-pear combination that's cozy, sensual, feminine and delightful.

It does smell like a tasty dessert, but it's not a true gourmand in nature. It's simply a sweet, soft, creamy scent that would make any woman wearing it instantly charming and irresistible.

The lasting power is amazing, 12-14 hours on my skin, with a more reserved sillage. It tends to stay closer to the skin.

I don't find it very fruity, more an oriental vanilla fragrance which is brilliant! Very feminine, perfect for any wear - casual and evening, summer and winter, day and night! Very versatile and certainly smelling 'expensive'.
It os great it can still be purchased at a fraction of other posh fragrances price, it is well worth trying!
My impression is that it smells slightly similar to Lempicka L without the salty note.
That fragrance definitely made me want to try more Burberry's fragrances.
Ladies - if you like versatile perfumes that gently tickle your nose, buy it!

This smells almost exakt like Jessica Simpson Fancy love. I must say, this is better. Fancy love, i use to love. It was my signature. But now, I just cant stand it. It's so boring, and it must be a note in it that make me sick. Burberry women is so pretty, it does not smell fruity or flowery, it smells kind of womenly, warm, pleasant, powdery. Mmm.. perfect for fall, even though its not spicy

I did like this one, but I remember it as a bit cloying especially to begin with. I can't recall any peach, so I'm actually quite surprised that peach is one of the prominent top notes. To me it was more like a sweet and warm oriental fragrance (vanilla and musk), perfect for fall/winter. The lasting power was great (on me). I find this one the best from Burberry.

How come I've had the Summer EDT of this for the last two years, but never have I tried this generously fruity, warm and timeless Burberry for women? A mistake that shall be fixed soon!
Now that I have a bottle, for me this fragrance says 'comfort and warmth' above all. It is fruity but not syrupy, vanilla-sprinkled but not head-turning. It's described as a fruity oriental. I wore it first for a few warm rainy days in spring and it was perfect, made me feel cozy, feminine and...well delicious, why not say this! The lasting power is very good while the fragrance stays rather close to the skin. It opens with a rich fruity symphony of blackberry, apple and greenery. Strangely enough no peach or pear are listed on the bottle, but the fragrance is definitely sweet and juicy like a fuzzy peach! Somewhere between the fruits, the musky vanilla and the mossy cedar I got this unusual pleasant note like bare skin, along with a sweet flavored pipe tobacco accord. I can sense the jasmine only if I spray it lightly, otherwise it melts in this woodsy-vanillic pot. Burberry Women manages to be spicy without being edgy. The fragrance is truly universal,classic and modern at the same time. It's elegant but still laid-back enough to be worn on daily basis, dress or jeans doesn't matter, and even at night. It somehow blends very well with the skin, and lasts forever when sprayed on hair. I've been asked by complete strangers who stand or pass close enough to me about this perfume thus I can say it's pleasing to others in general. This will be a stayer in my collection.

There is something elusive about this Burberry. It's classical but not in the old lady's kind of way. In the same breath though...it is also modern. I guess the best word would be timeless.

A timeless perfume that has me captivated. It's perfect for whatever occasion, in my opinion. I can imagine an office girl or a lady in the garden wearing it and still, it would be perfect on her.

If there was a fire and I could only save one bottle of perfume, this would be it. Ha ha ha ha ha!

Oh, I thought this would be much more oriental than it turned out to be!
I think half of the other girls in college are wearing this - it is a really standard scent that has that back-of-the-neck just-washed-hair vanilla-peachy scent to me.
Like another commenter said, way too sweet on my skin. :(
If you like vanilla and fruit though, it's unoffensive and it does last a very long time!

I agree with some other members that this is an oriental fragrance. Not floral fruity. Its such a gorgeous and sensual scent. Its warm, buttery, musky, woody, with just the right amount of vanilla and sweetness. Its the musk in this that makes me adore this scent. Musk really works with my chemistry. This can be worn at any time of day, any time of year. It suits me perfectly.

on me, it is an oriental fruity fragrance, and also very powdery: the predominant scent of dried peaches and pears with some baby power on top. It is not as bad is it may sound =))I happen to like it: it's non-offensive and comforting. To me, it associates with those cloudy/windy early spring days - just makes you feel cozier in the cold weather.

This perfume is beautiful and may easily become one of my favorite fragrances. It is warm yet fresh, sweet yet sour, mildly woodsy and fruity. I LOVE THIS! LOL! The top notes may be a little masculine but that doesn't make me love it any less. It dries down to a soft, musky, mildly sweet peach and vanilla. Just gorgeous! The lasting power is awesome as well. CAn't wait to get my bottle!

Update: Finally got my bottle and it happened to be a tester. The funny thing is is that peach is listed nowhere in the notes? o.0

The notes are listed as follows: Top-Blackcurrant, Green Apple, Bergamot
Heart Notes-Jasmine, Cedarwood, Sandalwood Base-Musk, Vanilla.

So do I have a different version or did they change the notes?! o.0

I have a love/like relationship with this perfume. Mainly I do not like the opening notes, not at all. They are heavy and syrupy to me, and because of my chemistry with citrus/fruity notes, it makes the perfume turn almost sour smelling in a heavy way. But then, I hit the middle notes and I love this perfume. As for the drydown, while I do enjoy it somewhat, there is a sharp, almost chalky type of smell there. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm very aware of the odor and it annoys me. If only it would stay in the middle notes forever! So while I wouldn't say this is one of my favorites, it's a nice change every now and then when I'm in the mood for something different. Just a struggle for me to get past those cloying top notes.

This is somehow sweet and light and heavy at the same time...It has no more lasting power on me than the other reviewers here, and yet it somehow has a heavy feeling. It's flowery without giving any jasmine impression, and not too sweet. The peach and pear last a while on me, but the peach is powdery, unlike the juicier peach of Champs-Elysées-I smell tonka bean too, and I like how musky the scent is...

This is a bit like Burberry Brit, only a little less sweet, and completely almond-free. I much prefer Brit, but this is a pleasant (but fairly serious) scent.

There is just something amazing about this perfume. The smell is addicting! It's lightly peachy, creamy, sensual and slightly woody with a splash of pear juice. It mixes well and creates a beautiful scent. Some reviewers find it to be "unsexy" but I disagree. I think it is very sexy. It stays fairly close to the skin and leaves a light scent around you. Lovely. Just lovely.

The bland box and bottle does not do this perfume any justice. I used to pass up this perfume on the shelves for others all because of the "plain jane" look. How wrong I was. I just decided one day to give it a try because while out shopping, this woman near me squeeked in delight when she spotted a bottle of Burberry. She ran up, sniffed it deeply and said to her friend behind her: "Oh, God I love the smell of Burberry!" So that got me wondering what was so special about that plain, manly looking bottle. Now I know!

This smells like others that I've smelled and loved. I recognize the apple in this and it smells very similar to the apple in Brandy. An apple orchard, hay smelling natural apple feel. The cedar is very similar to the cedar I smell in Hermes Un jardin Mediterranee. A greek isle cedar seeped in history and mythology. The vanilla is dry and leaves behind scent trails you can pick up thru out the day. This scent had to grow on me, but as my nose matured so did my adoration for this scent.

When I first tried this I was amazed at how good it smelled. Some new note that I had never smelled before. I bought it and sure enough in 3 days it became really boring. It smelled just plain musk and pear. Had to give it away. The packaging was still in tact and I had hardly used any of it. Gave it to a friend who had just graduated as a graduation gift. She loved it and whenever I see her she smells like it.

I should confess that it's not my favorite one.not that I don't like it,but after all of these good reviews I expected a wow!
to me it smells a bit similar to Brit,without almond.the tops notes are strange.not very fruity as it shows here.it's more like the top notes of an oriental perfume.
don't trust the middle notes.I have it on me for 15 minutes now and there's no hint of Jasmine,instead I smell something like tonka beans.
it's 100% burberry.it has the originality and discreet character of burberry perfumes,but yet I like brit and weekend much more.

Got this a couple years ago and LOVED it, but now it's just okay. Not bad, I still wear it in the fall/winter. Though the top notes are listed as all fruits, it's not as "fruity" as you might think. Just a little bit of bland fruits, but the warm and woody cedar comes out the most on me with a bit of sweet vanilla. Like I said, it's okay, but it bores me now.

I wore this years ago and remember enjoying it, but wishing it would last longer. I sprayed it a few days ago, when shopping with my boyfriend to see if he liked it and he opened my eyes to something I can't believe I missed when I owned this scent. Burberry smells a lot like Gucci Rush! It is far subtler, far mustier where Rush is vibrant and succulent, but the lactonic peachy note of Rush is present in Burberry as well.

I have to say, the staying power and sillage of this scent is really poor; I wouldn't pay full price for it. It is a lovely scent, however, and maybe perfect for those who enjoyed the fruitiness of Rush, but craved more woods and less electricity.

This is a rather hard to find fragrance due to it being listed under so many different names eg. Burberry for Women, Burberry Classic, Burberry London etc. When I eventually found it I had my fingers crossed that I hadn't been searching for something that was going to be a disappointment.

Disappointed, I was not. Crazy about the scent? No, not really.

This fragrance is light, creamy and warm. Unlike other Burberry scents, I felt that this fragrance stayed very close to the skin, making it an intimate perfume. When I smell Burberry Woman I immediately think of a hot sunny day, so I'd most likely wear this during the warmer seasons.

The peach, apricot, pear and black currant add a fruity freshness to this scent without making it too sour or overpowering. This is actually a fruity opening that I rather enjoyed.

I don't get a lot of jasmine in this fragrance, however the musk is fairly strong. Overall the scent is comforting and suitable for any age group, but with that being said this fragrance didn't grow on me because I found it rather linear and common.

It's not the best perfume choice if you're looking to stand out from the crowd. Burberry Woman is friendly and casual, not sexy, romantic or outstanding.

My all-time favourite....beautiful, warm, elegant & soft. Not too overpowering (heady scents usually give me a headache) & stays close & true on the skin for hours.

Vanilla is the heart of this fragrance, whilst the tiniest touch of peach lifts the musk. The jasmine does not annoy. There is a creamy, cashmere aura to this scent. I dislike full-on fruity fragrances & I would not classify BL as such, more a very soft oriental.

I have heard people compare it to Rush....but I find this to be an insult to Burberry! To me the only similarity is the peach....but in Rush it is plastic peach, in BL it is peach wrapped in gold. It has a delicacy that other fragrances fail to match. The woody notes make sure that it is never too sweet or sickly - just perfect!

I have been stopped & complimented by strangers close enough to catch a waft of this superb fragrance - especially when I spritz it on my hair.

10/10 - I only wish the bottle lasted longer!

In spite of being a feminine fragrance, I acquired a bottle for me once upon a time, because I thought this fragrance is very similar to Bourbon Homme, from Marina de Bourbon, which I miss.

But I do not agree that this one is fruity-floral, since it revealed as an ambery and spicy fragrance on my skin, becoming sweet, without being obnoxious. He is wonderful for cooler climates, rainy days and moments where we are next to who we like, as in a cinema, a special dinner, etc.

Although not to consist of its composition, I think that this cologne leaves a smell of caramel almonds, which make it different and seductive.
It possesses good lasting and collects many compliments.

they say "fruity floral" but the impression that i get from it is very oriental. its warmth and sweetness, and slight spiciness. smells mature and sexy, like someone who knows parfums
it's sweetness slowly diminishes until you are left with a subtle woodsy, musky scent that lingers close to you(at least on me)

Smells very comforting. Unfortunately my husband hates it but I really like it. Not floral, more fruity and musky. Normally I don't like vanilla but this has just the right amount.

This fragrance is difficult for me to describe, at least with notes. It does remind me of a "skin" scent. Not gourmand nor very floral at all. I get a very comforting ambery drydown. The scent is not loud, in fact, it seems soothing and warm to me. I could see a female of any age wearing this, though it's for people who like subtle fragrances that stay close to the skin. It is unobtrusive, but CAN be heavy if you overdo it. This is very sensual~ Lasting power is good on me, I put it on 7 hours ago and can still smell it.

With Burberry Woman on I always feel cosy and confident. The lasting power is exceptional. I find it somehow similar to Acqua di Gio and I am positive there are some tonka beans in the base notes.

I don't know it reminds me something, maybe some Ghosts fragrance?For me its more fruity than floral scent. This one is a warm, sweet, but fresh perfume, although still on the synthetic side, which smells utterly 'supermarkets', 'shopping' and 'drugstore'. The fragrance is still nice, non offencive and light, the one that stays close to the skin. But is it the one I would choose? No, I don't think so

I love this, can't wait to own it someday.. I would wear this everyday in fall/winter months. So soft and cozy smelling. I try it out everytime I go to Kohl's and I can't stop smelling myself.. Very Orgasmic...
I finally bought it...

Love this one. It has such a warm scent. You really get that peach scent. I usually don't like the scent of vanilla in a perfume, but this one is fantastic. Much more of a cold weather scent.

This is one of my "go to" fragrances. An upscale perfume beginning with the eruption of fresh fruit then a subtle simmering of the sensual woody florals and then the final stage ending with calming effect of vanilla and musk. This winning combination of modern and traditional notes is my preferred Burberry scent with the exception of the preceding Burberry masterpiece, Society, which unfortunately is no longer owned by Burberry and has been reformulated.

A beautiful, understated fragrance. Yummy peach/apricot topnotes, drydown is a comforting musk/cedar/vanilla. Develops into a sensual skin scent. Very natural smelling, not likely to bother anyone with allergies. Good choice for someone who doesn't like "perfumey" fragrances.

I love this perfume. It's light and suitable for everyday wear. At first it's fruity, especially the peaches. The musk and vanilla come out after it dries down. The peaches stay throughout. I agree with Diana. It's a feel good perfume. MMMM.

This is a nice, clean all purpose make you feel good kind of perfume. Not too dramatic for everyday wear, yet smells wonderful, a good mood perfume. Smells good from the time you put it on till hours later when it begins to wear off.

Oh, the peaches!
I love it if it is snowing or raining, if it is cold, clowdy and windy. My mind goes to summer and peaches and warmth and I am happy again
