Burberry Brit Sheer For Her, Burberry Brit Splash For Him, EdT, Review

A something in a summer’s day
As slow her flambeaux burn away
Which solemnizes me.

A something in a summer’s noon —
An a depth — an Azure — a perfume —
Transcending ecstasy.

-Emily Dickinson

After bringing out two new perfumes to their Brit Rhythm range, Floral for Her (reviewed here) and Intense for Him, Burberry recently extended their original Brit range. A new fresh summer breeze touches both male and female versions. Today I would like to share my thoughts about Burberry Brit Sheer for Her and Burberry Brit Splash for Him.

Burberry Brit EdT Sheer For Her, Burberry Brit Splash For Him

I would like to start for the gentlemen. Burberry Brit Splash For Him is a fresh spicy, aquatic summer fragrance, the notes are listed as follows:

Top Notes: 
Melon, Rosemary, Galbanum

Heart Notes: 
Watery Notes
Moss, Musk, Vetiver

Light blue glass flacon with signature Burberry pattern is transparent, fitting to the character of the fresh and aquatic notes and bringing a casual touch to the experience. In this form the bottle reminds me of Burberry Brit Rhythm line.

Burberry Brit Splash For Him
The opening whiff is really interesting with an unusual combination of fresh spicy notes of rosemary and fruity traces of melon. Although it all sounds to be sweet and tropical, the green and musky character or galbanum, although not dominant, keeps it masculine and dry. As the aquatic notes enter the mix, the freshness is preserved. I imagine a fresh breeze from the sea carrying the aroma of the newly planted rosemary from your garden. As the fragrance settles on your skin and becomes a part of you, it turns somewhat muskier and green. I don't get many moss in there but the resulting scent, staying close to the skin, is very pleasant, not heavy, yet recognizable. Burberry Brit Splash For Him stays very long for an Eau de Toilette on me, around 7 hours.

Burberry Brit EdT Sheer For Her
The new Burberry Brit for Her, Brit Sheer is a fruity fresh summer fragrance. The notes are listed as follows:

Top Notes: 
Sweet lychee, yuzu, pineapple leaves and mandarin 

Heart Notes: 
Pink peony, peach blossom and nashi  
Base Notes:
White musk and blond wood

The peachy pink transparent flacon with Burberry pattern reminds me once more of Brit Rhythm Floral which was released recently. Burberry Brit Sheer bottle has a thinner glass and a more transparent texture, making it more girly and chic as well as a little less casual.

Burberry Brit EdT Sheer For Her

Once sprayed on, Burberry Brit Sheer opens up with a fresh fruity note, just a little sweetness which is balanced well the bitter quality of yuzu. At this point it stays somewhat on a slightly fruity, sweet point. As the floral heart reveals, the composition becomes more feminine and very pleasant. It is clean but not soapy, it is floral but not overwhelmingly. Yet it is fruity but never syrupy. It is very well balanced and blended, very light like a transparent scarf hanging on your neck which dances in the tropical wind. Burberry Brit Sheer For Her is not a very interesting nor unique fragrance on me but a very pleasant one I would wear during summer without the fear of it being overpowering. Like wearing my transparent scarf, it just adds a touch of elegance. The elegance is a little short living though, after 3 hours it stays one more hour on me being very close to skin, before it eventually fades.

Burberry Brit EdT Sheer For Her, Burberry Brit Splash For Him

Final thoughts: Both of the new additions to Burberry Brit line, Sheer For Her and Splash For Him in EdT concentration are lovely summer counterparts to the originals. Luckily so, they are not watered down versions of Burberry Brit but new creations with their own character. Burberry Brit Splash for Him is a fresh spicy aquatic scent with a slight green touch which I would recommend for ones who love aquatic fragrances. It has a very good longevity for an EdT. Burberry Brit Sheer For Her is a fruity floral which is very transparent, airy and light. It is a great summer fragrance, a very well balanced and pleasant one. Although not earth shaking, many will love it for its barely there short lived touch on a summer's day.

Which fragrance are you enjoying during warm days at the moment?

  1. Hmm I actually think the For Him version sounds a lot more interesting! I wear Jo Malone scents a lot when it's warm, because they tend to be more subdued. I also like Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, which I normally deem as too simple but it's so good when it's warm.

  2. Thanks for the details about these Burberry fragrances! Based on the notes you mentioned, I think I'd like to get my hubby the Splash for Him :)

  3. I need to check them. I don't really like Burberry's scents at all.
    As summer scents go for me I love the old Aqua di Gio, Les Jardins by Hermes (all of them), eau de Sisley 1,2,3, Escale de Portifino by Dior, Sahara Noir by TF, Laine Verre S. Lutens and many more.

  4. Hi Sunny,
    I like the male version of this more too. Especially for those who like aquatic scents, this is very spot on, long lasting, lovely. The female version is a little too fruity/floral for my taste. But of course there are people who like it too lol. Dior Blooming Bouquet is so lovely. If I wouldn't be running out of place in my perfume shelf, I would consider grabbing a bottle. You are right Jo Malone is great for summer.

  5. Hi there Lexi,
    I love Splash on my hubby, let me know how yours like it :-*

  6. Aqua di Gio is really very lovely. Have you tried My Burberry from Burberry? Not for summer but that one is one of my favorites from the line. I have to yet try Sisley's, which one would you recommend more?


I love to hear what you think. Fell free to write in English, German or Turkish.
