@Jerry Can..

They don't make them like they use to!! I hope you were able to find a 100ml. I came across this fragrance but only in 30ml and it was pricey. Enjoy the fragrance...it truly is a GEM!!!

Thankyou perfumecritic for making sense of this confusion. I knew the bottle in the main picture wasn't the one I was looking for. The Burberrys for Men that I wore and loved from the early 1980s was the vertical oblong bottle (as per the picture on the right). I haven't seen it for a long time. It was very popular and is yet another much lamented absentee (Ted Lapidus PH and Charles Jourdan un Homme).

All im getting right now is a very dry 80's leather vibe. I hope it does something soon or else its just like a lot of other masculines from the past. Good in a sense but not my style.

I had this back in the 80'. I like to use a masculine scent now and then and this was one of my favorites. I actually got a lot of compliments from men when I wore this scent!

I had this fragrance way back in 90s and believe me i loved it. I was so fond of it that i sprayed 100 ml within few months due to tons of compliments each time i wore. It was a compliment getter, a genuine masculin aroma which use to entice every sniffer around you. Unfortunately dont find it anymore, think it is discontinued.

The above information is slightly incorrect in that it shows the bottle from 1991 as the primary image, the companion to Society yet also simply called Burberry's for Men, but gives the notes from 1981's original Burberry's for Men (pictured above right). Confusing, I know.

So here is the recap: in 1981 there was a fragrance called Burberry's for men. In 1991 Burberry's launched Society for women and a companion fragrance also titled Burberry's for Men which was not the same composition as the original 1981 version, nor was it the product shown on the Society for men page, a fragrance which was launched by a different company using the same name once Society for women was no longer in production.

And if all of this wasn't confusing enough, in 1995 after the apparent failure of Society for women and the 1981 & 1991 versions of Burberry's for men, the company launched another set of fragrances with the exact same name, "Burberry's", however this time the word London appeared underneath the company's moniker. Of the three versions from 1981, 1991 and 1995, the 1995 product is the only one still in production. This is now sometimes referred to as Burberry's London for men, which is even more crazily misleading because Burberry's did indeed launch a Burberry's London for men just a few years back. These two fragrances have totally different bottles and totally different compositions.

When fragrance licenses expire and change hands we consumers witness all of this confusing naming business. Both Versace and Dior have suffered from the same problem with numerous fragrances launched at different times with slightly different compositions, or even wildly different compositions, but quite similar or exactly the same names.

This review is for the bottle pictured above. I can see the comparison to Tiffany for Men, though not as much to Chanel pour Homme Concentree. Here the myrrh/vanillic quality is obvious, as is the vanilla in the Tiffany, but the patchouli is much less obvious. What I think I like most about this one is how there is great contrast between the aromatic elements and the sweet, syrupy oriental one. Spice seems to connect the two and prevent an irritating clash from occurring. There is also a kind of woody background hum which supplies some "structure." This is the kind of scent that recent designer attempts seem to fail miserably at, and my guess is that lack of ingredient quality is the key problem (though in some cases there is another issue, such as being overly sweet). Of course some don't perceive the "synthetic" qualities of them, but that also means they probably can't appreciate the richness and depth of scents like this one. This is really well balanced and should be ranked very highly, IMO, even when compared against other vintage greats !

UPDATE: If you can't afford this one or just can't find it, I suggest trying Mesmerize for men by Avon. No, I don't think it's exactly the same or that the ingredient quality or blending is as good but it may be close enough for you, all things considered. Heritage is another in the same general range as this one.

UPDATE #2: I have now tried the "original," from 1981. Apparently, the bottle (and formulation) pictured above is from around 1991/1992. In any case, the 1981 formulation smells a great deal like Vetiver de Puig, though perhaps just a bit smoother. I'll just copy and paste the notes for Vetiver de Puig below and that will give you an idea of what to expect (it's dry, with strong lavender, sandalwood, and vetiver):


TOP:
galbanum
bergamot
aldehydes
lemon
artemesia
rosemary

MIDDLE:
lavender
carnation
cedar
patchouli
vetiver
cumin

BASE:
labdanum
moss
musk
tonka bean

It is a very nice blend albeit somehow, remotely, similar to Tiffany for Men / Chanel pour Homme Concentree. If there are citrics in the top notes of both, these are far more evident in the later ones, however, these points in common lurk around in favor of Burberry's, for the blend feels softer, kinder, mellower than the rest. Trying hard to determine if florals or spices are the ones behind these perceptions, one is left with the odd feeling that no conclusion can be arrived at. The blend feels well assembled, without any of its notes taking ther lead.

Dating from the early 1980's, I cannot state that the blend feels dated. Yes, it feels "heavy" to the nose maybe because of the oakmoss, but this does not compromise its attraction. It feels traditonal, gentlemanly and formal, and quite up - to - these- days, so to speak. Which is an interesting fact: many of the scents released during the 1980's that are still in production, even though I like many of them, cannot stop me thinking that they do feel dated.

My absolute favorite! Number 1 in my colleсtion. It is very similar on "Derby" by Guerlain but more softly & nobly. Old vintage lether, wild herbs and bitter absinthe drops.

Burberrys is one of the rarest vintage ones that delivers a delicate and elaborate elegance just like the brand's designs. It smells yummy, waxy, vintage and aromatic leathery resinous. A masterpiece definitely and a must for those love warm fragrances like Dunhill stuff. But I got it a little feminine.
Dries down in deeper and smokier mood.

This is a masterpiece.
One of those that makes you take another deep sniff.
Airy & deep at the same time,
sweet without being too sweet.
There is nothing like it.

Ought to be relaunched.
