Eternity was signature scent of the late 80's early 90's and has been around long enough to gain a rightful, classic status now. It is one of the best on the market, it smells classy, clean, zingy and has more than a touch of the erotic about it. Always worth having a bottle handy even if you don't wear it everyday, it is a yummy, scrummy scent.
The fragrance is very fresh and light. It has a floral base with a light overtone of cucumber or melon which make it airy and refreshing without making the wearer smell like a "fruit salad." It seems to me, however, a perfume that speaks more of a younger person than I am; or perhaps a more youthful fragrance than I usually wear. I tend to prefer deeper sents with overtones of sandlewood or other woody scents. Would make an especially nice gift for a teen or 20-something.
I have used Eternity since I was a teenager (15 years of Eternity!!) and I have never received so many compliments. This perfume is nothing but light, airy, and elegant. No cheap perfume smell here. You will not blow poeple away with this, but you will definitely make an impression. My best friend, who happens to be a male, says that whenever he takes me out in his car, I leave my "essence" behind. He says this with a big smile. He says that the smell makes him feel like he's gotten a "big…
I received a spray sample of this scent and absolutely LOVED it so ordered it and received it in only 2 days. That is the good part. The bad part is that it doesn't smell the same. It is stronger and smells like it has aged from not being used for a long time. Then I found you can't return fragrances to Amazon so I am very disappointed. I wish I could figure out how to make the smell better so I can use it.
After ordering, product arrived at my door within a week (half the estimated time) in great condition. Perfume smelled exactly how it was supposed to- proper scent percentage that you can rarely find when buying online- and was in original Burberry box/wrappings. I would definitely order here again in a heartbeat.
Every now and then you find a scent that resonates with your personality and just smells "right". For me, "Brit" is one of those. It is a light oriental, underlined with warm, sweet notes (vanilla, almond). It is intense, but gentle. I find for daywear that the Eau de Toilette is best - the scent lingers, but is never overpowering. There's nothing worse than having to work with someone wearing gaggingly strong scent! Highly recommended.
