I wear it year round, but I guess some people may think it is too strong to wear in the summer time.

I would say it's more of a fall/winter scent. I suppose you could wear it year round based on your preference, but for me, it's a little too musky/woodsy to be considered during warmer weather.

Despite what people say you can wear any fragrance you like year round. Many will classify this as a fall/winter fragrance because it's warm and a tad bit heavy depending on how much you use, however if you like it that much...wear it whenever you'd like day/evening or summer/winter!

I got it for my mother for her birthday in August and I think she wears it year round, so it can certainly be done without it seeming out of place. I think that its more evocative of other fall and winter scents however, so it certainly would be appropriate this time of year!

I tend to wear mine a bit more in the summer, actually. (I just pulled it out today, May 1st!!!) I think it's quite sexy in warm weather. I like it in the winter, too, though; it's not a heavy, winter oriental but it's not so light that it's only good for summer wear.

Question
Does Burberry Brit Come In Different Bottles?
I purchased the 1.0 size of burberry brit and was under the impression that the one i bought was the one pictured above. But the bottle isn't this one. It says it's burberry brit but it's the clear one with white stripes on it rather than the red, blue and white. Is it the same perfume in different bottles? Only I'm confused because they're listed separately on the website and I can't tell if the smell is the same. Thank you for your time.

You probably have the burberry brit sheer. That bottle has white stripes on it. The scent is the same as the regular brit but just less intense.

If it is Burberry Brit, it could be that you ordered the Eau de Toilette vice the Eau de Parfum. The toilettes are not as strong as the parfums. Parfums have more of the essential oils, where the toilettes are more watered down. If it has pink in the stripes, you could have ordered the Brit Sheer.

The bottle pcitured above is the eau de parfum bottle, the clear bottle with the white stripes is the eau de toilette bottle. The parfum is more 'rich' with the fragrance and the toilette is less potent.

The bottle you got which is clear w/white stripes is the Eau de Toilette which is just less concentrated. The bottle you see above with black and red stripes is the Eau de Parfum which is more concentrated but yes they are the same fragrance just one is Toilette and one is Parfum. Hope this helps you.

answer 5
White stripes is Eau de Toilette - the one in the above image is the eau de parfum. The difference lies in the strength of the fragrance and the length of wear. The eau de parfum has a higher oil content and therefore will last longer and have a stronger fragrance. It's usually personal preference for which one people prefer.

You might have gotten the Burberry Brit Sheer instead of the Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum. They do in fact smell different from each other. If I remember correctly the Sheer smells a bit more floral than the Brit Eau de Parfum... hope that helps.

The one that you bought is the eau de toilette. They smell the same, but that one is a bit lighter and doesn't last as long.

It sounds like you bought the Eau de Toilette instead of the Eau de Parfum. It essentially is the same scent, but the EDP has a higher concentration of perfume concentrates and therefore is stronger and lasts longer.

Burberry Brit in the clear bottle, with white plaid, is the 'eau de toilette' version. The bottle with the black, white, and red plaid is the 'eau de parfum.' These are both alcohol-based, but the edp version does contain a higher percentage of perfume oils, and therefore lasts significantly longer on the skin. I've owned both and I'd recommend the edp version to anyone who likes richer, heavier scents, and the edt to those who enjoy lighter fragrances that don't last a long time. Of course, the price reflects the cost of the materials as well, so the edt is much cheaper than the edp, because there are less parfum oils in the formula.

Sephora has a great return policy and if you mistakenly ordered the wrong product, you probably won't have a problem exchanging it for the one you wanted.

I believe that might be the eau de toilette rather than the eau de parfum. Eau de toilettes are water-based while eau de parfums are oil-based. The scents are the same but the eau de parfum will be richer/stronger and last longer because of its oil base.

I prefer EDP! You don't have to wear as much and the scent last longer, so even though it is more expensive, it is ultimately worth the little extra, because you'll use less and it'll last longer!

EDP is better if you are looking for your perfume to have more staying power. EDP has more of the essential oils in the perfume and in essence last longer through out the day. EDT has more water/alcohol in it so it's lighter in scent and doesn't last as long through the day.

The bottle with the white stipes is usually the edT and the black and red stripes is the edP... However I believe the etP 1 oz only has white stripes(If this is the case it is stupid and confusing)... It should have a sticker on the bottle somewhere that says Eau de parfum or Eau de toilette...

Eau de Parfum is ALWAYS "better" because it is more highly concentrated and lasts longer. With an EDT (short for eau de toilette) you have 4 hours of fragrance AT BEST. An EDP will get you through the work day, but remember to use it more sparingly!

I've owned both (the eau de toilette was a gift) and the eau de parfum is much, much longer lasting and, I think, better to smell. Definitely worth the extra money.

Question
Any chance this comes in a rollerball version??
I went to your store this afternoon in hopes of finding THIS scent in a rollerball version (since the perfume is lovely but a bit out of my price range!) and couldn't find it. I had a very nice associate by the name of Dee help me out and together we tracked down all the other Burberry varieties (which I don't care much for) but not this one. I told her not to worry about it because I was sure the online store had it available but I don't see it here, either.

Outside of getting a sample made up (which is nice but only lasts so long), is there any chance that a smaller, less expensive rollerball is available (or could be made available) of this perfume? I would be eternally grateful!! Thanks!

I have honestly never seen a rollerball version of Burberry Brit. :( I am so sorry! But I can say that I have had the same 3.7 oz bottle for two years and it is just about half empty. It is definitely worth the money if you can save up! Or ask for it as a gift in the smaller version! I promise you won't regret it!

Is it possible you received the Eau de Toilette instead of the Eau de Parfum? I have both and accidentally purchased the toilette first and thought it smelled a little off, as well. The bottles do look similar, too. I am guessing that is what happened!

Usually if the bottle is exactly the same, and there wasn't any changes in packaging or wording like "New" or they switched around the order of the name "Burberry Brit" to 'Brit' by Burberry. Then unfortunately you're probably the victim of a reformulation; oftentimes companies will tweak the formulas of popular fragrances slightly to try and keep it fresh and popular and up to standards with current tastes. They don't advertise doing this however, because they aren't really releasing a new fragrance, and they would prefer fans of the fragrance to continue to purchase it. Hopefully, you do like the perfume still, but if not there's not a whole lot you can do.
