Burberry The Beat

The bergamot in the opening is providing a fresh and bright starting point, which is counterbalanced by a soft white pepper that lacks any serious spiciness on me.

A light tea note leads to the floral core notes where iris and a few whiffs of muguet are notable, but they are quite restrained and never cloyingly sweet.

The base is characterised by the presence of a woodsy note, which is rather nonspecific, and the familiar white musk concoction that is used by many houses as an adaptable way of closing a fragrance.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and five hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant spring creation than is pleasant and agreeable and a bit more vibrant than the male version, but too generic to truly make its mark in the positive realm of the scoring board. 2.75/5
