It turns out that I had to sell my soul (i.e. allow them to have all sorts of access to my FB page/info) to get this free sample. I debated about it for a couple minutes, but then decided my love of fragrance was worth handing over my soul for, especially if it gets me a new product before the launch date!
Oh, how wrong I was. I only received the sample this week - fourteen days after the launch date. There goes my soul for nothing, but on the bright side I now have a sample that I can evaluate, even if it is a bit delayed.
The fragrance opens with a strong hit of light, fresh and clean freesia (jasminey-orange) floral notes with a tiny bit of sweetness from a hint of peach. It quickly develops into middle notes of rose and iris (still keeping the overall light, fresh tone) and finally dries down into warm woody-musky notes that are kept light and fresh due to the sweet, floral scents that characterize this fragrance. There is nothing remarkable about it, but its dry down of musky-floral-sweetness is actually quite nice.
Thankfully, you won't have to sell your soul like I did to either sample or buy Burberry Body. As previously noted, it officially launched at the beginning of September and can be found in most beauty/department stores.
