Inspired by the city of London and the classic scents of British perfumery, Mr. Burberry has the figure design of the gentleman with an iconic black Burberry trench coat. Released in 2016, Mr. Burberry has a herbal/woody composition, which is aromatic and fresh spicy.
People using Mr. Burberry said it is not a groundbreaker, but a very high class smell. The classy smell I gives may not scream for attention when you’re wearing it (that’s why it’s a spring cologne) but it’s still preferred for its comforting, woody and grassy scent.

The best review of this perfume for men said it is “a modern take on the citrus and herb scent: bitter, crunchy, tart, and salubrious – but beyond that it has a complexity of its shading, treated lightly here. The yellow orange cologne is intense and energetic”.
