Fragrances and Beauty
‘We wanted to create something iconic, unique and special’
‘Seductive, sensual, elegant, timeless, iconic and memorable’
Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
According to Christopher Bailey, Burberry Body is the next chapter in the 155 years of Burberry history. For Burberry, Burberry Body is not just a fragrance launch, it is a brand launch, that reflects the attitude and energy of the modern British Burberry girl.
Burberry Body is a floral woody amber fragrance with an eclectic mix of ingredients. It was developed by perfumer Michael Almairac, who has also created fragrances for Armani, Gucci, Bond and Chloe, to name just a few. The scent has top notes of fresh green absinthe, peach and freesia. The floral bouquet of natural rose absolute and iris blends with warm notes of sandalwood. Woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, amber and musk compose the base.
The Burberry Body falcon was designed by Christopher Bailey and is a multifaceted crystal -like, glass bottle with a rose gold check, etched into the bottle and the lid. The color palette of the Burberry Body packaging follows the traditional Burberry style of rose gold, nudes and white.
The celebrated photographer Mario Testino shot the Burberry Body campaign under the creative direction of Christopher Bailey. The beautiful British actress and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the face (and body) of Burberry Body, who is nearly wearing an iconic rose gold satin Burberry trench coat.
