     A man of contrast, classic yet contemporary, sophisticated and sensual, Mr. Burberry is celebrated with the sartorial ready-to-wear men's collection, including the new Chelsea fit Heritage Trench Coat worn by Josh Whitehouse - the star of the new campaign. Also on its commercial campaign, Mr. Burberry has this short film commercial shot by Oscar and Turner Prize-winning British director, Steve McQueen. The film is set in London and features British actor and musician, Josh Whitehouse, and British model and actress, Amber Anderson. The soundtrack is by Mercury Prize winner, Benjamin Clementine, titled 'I Won't Complain'.

"The film was shot on 70mm film. As there are only roughly six of these cameras in existence in the world, this was a unique proposition. What I wanted to engage with was a special, sensual moment in time for these two lovers, which was intimate but in actuality was epic. "
Steve McQueen, film director

Here goes the video (warning, do not watch if you're under 18 as it's so hawt, seriously hahhaha):

     See, told ya so hahahhaa. It's sensual, sophisticated and classy just like the Mr. Burberry fragrance. Plus, Josh is freakin hawt! The short film totally nailed it! Hahahhaa. Anyway, please stop re-watching the commercial and let's just check how i feel about this fragrance.

     Here goes the packaging!

     The outer packaging is a luxurious looking box with dove black color. As for the bottle, it's inspired by the iconic black Burberry trench coat - its quality, craftsmanship, style, and timeless appeal. Bottle black like the coat, the weighted cap references horn-look buttons, while a hand-tied knot in English-woven gabardine sits around the neck. I totally fell in love with the packaging, just like My Burberry EDT, Mr. Burberry EDT also has this simple yet elegant bottle <3

"Sensual and elegant with a striking brightness, Mr. Burberry sets the tone with uplifting yet sophisticated grapefruit and complex cardamom. At the heart, an accord of birch leaf warms the core with balancing cedar wood. Layered with vetiver and guaiac wood, it graduates to a smokey scent with clean, earthy codes."

     So the top notes are crisp zesty grapefruit and cut with a seductive base of earthy vetiver and smokey guaiacwood. I love the scent! Somehow it reminds me of a childhood memory, maybe my dad used to wear this kinda scent perfume, not the same, but alike. Well, anyway actually i like the scent because it's not too strong (as i may have mention in one of my fragrance review, i don't really like a strong man's fragrance scent). The scent is light, but spread all over the room nicely, just like the My Burberry EDT one. Totally a perfect combination: Mr. Burberry + My Burberry.

     Basically the scent is fresh and elegant. I guess it suits James Bond perfectly somehow hahhahaa. The smell also making me imagine London city somehow. I can't describe it well, but i do like the scent so much. I guess this would be a perfect gift for your bro, dad, boyfriend, husband etc. Or if you like a masculine scent, i guess this also nice to put on hahaha. I did try it a few times and it smells nice hahahhaa. My brother and boyfriend also told me Mr. Burberry smells so nice and my bro totally looking forward to have it hahaha. So if you're curious about this EDT, go to the nearest dept store or Sephora and try it yourself!

Rating: 4.5/5
     It's a bit expensive, but the quality of the packaging and the scent are totally worth it.
