Notes include: pear, lime, and green tea, with middle notes being sugared almond and white peony. The base notes are musks, amber, and mahogany wood.
The scent does indeed start off being light and fresh, but settles down slightly sweet thanks to the sugared almond and amber. The scent is an eau de toilette so it is actually fresh and light. If you were a fan of the original Burberry Brit, you will like this as well. I really can’t comment on how it compares to the original since I have not smelled that.
Pick it up at local fragrance counters for about $70.
