Listening, listening, to each of your echoing call, each of your note,
that is left beating, against the corner of my mind, the shadow of my happiness,
to be, to be, that drop of rain, that lingers upon the wondering melody,
the scent of roses, beneath the folds of pouring rain,
you are more than just my first encounter, to the wanderlust, the world of scent,
that only captures the imagination, of a woman who is looking, for that
very note, that is who she feels she may be.
You are more than the scent, that captures the heart, that awakens the senses,
that leaves a mark, to be yearn upon,
again and again,
you are that mystery gift, that breath of fresh air,
that can only be called, my one and only
Listen and listen, listen to the voice, singing for the rain,
for it holds so much of a lullaby,
that is ever so irresistible. Have you ever wondered,
how much the rain holds, a discovery to the world,
a world beyond words, and can only be felt,
through those smells that come with the falling rain?
Rain oh rain, please stay,
the sun can come, another day.
My Burberry came in a nice earthy-coloured paper bag, simple and no-fuss and the bottle is packed within a brown paper box, as simple as the paper bag. We read about My Burberry briefly on Elle Malaysia magazine just the other day that, the famous perfumer, Francis Kurkdjian says that everything has its structure, including creating fragrances. Together with Christopher Bailey, they build the notes to My Burberry one step at a time, starting from concept, the story to the notes and the various layers and ingredients (read about the makeup of My Burberry via our previous blog post here). According to him, My Burberry is unpolished, unlike a French fragrance, but it has character, it is quintessentially very British, interesting indeed.
When we first had the fragrance on, it somewhat hits us, in a grand way, almost feels as though the scent is trying to make its presence to the wearer, not quite the imposing way, but rather, a little sophisticated sort of feel. As the time passes, the scent gradually mellows down to a soft enveloping feel of dreamy quality, almost as if, like a veil, slowly slipping away to reveal its true sensual nature, peeling away the mystery behind it all, as though the woman in us, has finally arrived... and that, makes us happy and contented, in so many ways,
It does feel like a breath of fresh air right after the rain, and like any rain, no matter how long or how heavy it may seem, eventually, it makes way for the glittering sun, as it has finally decided to come out and play. Beautiful indeed. The best part is, we had ours monogrammed as LMJ and it will be our treasured grand floral fragrance for a long time to come. More details on the latest My Burberry here.
My Burberry EDP retails for RM205 (30ml), RM315 (50ml), RM465 (90ml) and RM10,250 (900ml)
We wonder what is your signature scent and how does it make you feel?
