I first came across 'Burberry Touch for men' fragrance about four years ago, when my wife (well - girlfriend at the time) very kindly got me a 30 ml Eau De Toilette bottle of it for Christmas. I have since purchased both the 30 ml EDT and 100 ml EDT bottles of Burberry Touch several times, and received them as presents from my family, and I really love the fragrance.
I very am grateful that I did receive this fragrance as a gift, because I very much doubt that I would have ever bought it for myself, simply due to my blinkered and somewhat narrow-minded vision of the Burberry brand which I had previously always considered to be designed purely for 'Chavs'.
The bottle of Burberry Touch comes in a nice grey box, with the famous Burberry checkered pattern, covering the box in a modest grey and black colour. Inside the box is the bottle, but the bottle is contained within a lovely grey cloth sack with a cord at the top of it, which is a nice 'touch', and also great to put to use for other things once the bottle is empty.
The bottle itself comes in the form of a thick conical shaped, clear glass bottle, which gets thicker in diameter as the bottle rises from the base towards the lid. The lid is like a kind of dark wood effect to look at, but is actually composed from plastic, and it is shaped like a replica of the bottle. Once the lid is pulled off the bottle, there is a nice silver spray mechanism which is used to release the scent.
~~~ The Scent ~~~
As I mentioned above, I really do like this scent, and fell in love with it from the instant I smelt it for the first time. Burberry Touch has notes of violets and tart mandarin which are subtly blended with invigorating waves of white pepper. This is then softened by the smoothness of Virginia wood and oak moss. This combination gives a very light and sweet smell, but with a very slight hint of wood lurking the background, which gives a fresh scent that lasts a very, very long time. It is one of those scents that can easily be smelt on your clothes the next day, and I personally think it is very suitable for all kinds of occasions, during any season of the year. I would tend to suggest that it is aimed at the younger to middle aged male. Due to the long lasting scent, it does only requires a couple of fine squirts of the fragrance to last all day, and so the bottle (especially the 100 ml bottle) does end up lasting quite a while, offering good value for money.
Burberry touch is available in most fragrance stores and comes in both 30 ml and 100 ml EDT bottles, with the 100 ml bottle offering the better value as you would expect. It is worth shopping around for a good deal on all fragrances, and Burberry Touch is no different as I have experienced. The most I have paid for a bottle is around £20 for the 30 ml EDT although this was a few years ago, but more recently I picked up the 100 ml bottle (more than 3 times the amount) for just £30.
~~~ In summary ~~~
Burberry Touch is a fantastic scent, which certainly is not just for the 'Chavs'. The price is very reasonable if you shop around, and the scent has some real good staying power, providing a fresh, and light, long lasting fragrance which is versatile in that it is suitable for almost any occasion.
