New in my Scentrobe: Dishevelled Elegance

Burberry’s The Beat For Men is a young and elegant fragrance with lot’s of attitude and style. I like this one for Spring and the warmer months. The Beat rocks a much younger vibe than the classic Burberry For Men which I've been a fan of for a long time.
The Beat opens with a slightly creamy-peppery note and then instantly smoothes out into a woody mix of vetiver bourbon, leatherwood and violet leaves. Very nice. It’s well made with good sillage (the trail of scent you leave wafting behind you) and doesn’t lose it’s edge.

Christopher Bailey, creative director for Burberry, set out to create a fragrance that “expressed disheveled elegance – an unforced look, style and attitude that is young, modern masculine and dynamic.” He hit the mark.

And as a bonus….I LOVE the bottle! It was designed by one of my favorite bad boy designers, Fabien Baron who also designed Madonna’s S*X book.
