Fragrance Friday: Burberry Body Tender Review


Today sees the launch of Burberry Body Tender, an extension of the Burberry Body line, this scent is a lighter, fresher version of the original Burberry Body and the campaign is fronted by model-of-the-moment Cara Delevigne.
The stunning visuals for the ad campaign were captured by Mario Testino along the river Thames, sticking to the brand’s British roots. The packaging and bottle are the same design as the original, with a hint of pink.
The scent itself is lighter, fresher and easier to wear than the original. While I think you would love this if you are a fan of the original ‘Body’, I also think that this version may appeal to those who were under-whelmed by the first scent. In my opinion, it’s a little younger and easier to wear, with top notes of lemon, green apple and absinthe. It dries down to a light floral of rose, jasmine, sandalwood, cashmere and musk. It’s smooth and not over-the-top, but still distinctly floral and very feminine.

The staying power is about average. While the strength of the scent is much more subtle than the original, it does linger on the skin for about 6 hours - pretty good for an EDT.

I think Cara Delevigne was the perfect choice as a face of the scent. If Rosie H-W was ‘Body’, Cara is ‘Tender’… Equally as gorgeous, but younger and more casual. This scent would make the perfect daytime scent for current ‘Body’ fans.

Burberry Body Tender is available now, Prices start at £49.95 for 30ml EDT.

  14. I'd really like to smell this because I had a sample of the original which I quite liked but found to smell a little too mature for me as a teenager. I'll definitely be checking this out!

  37. Ahoj, ráda bych tě pozvala na svůj blog :). Předem podotýkám, že mi nejde o reklamu, ale o to, aby se o problematice, které se na svém webu věnuju, dozvědělo co nejvíce lidí a poučilo to tak laickou veřejnost, která je většinou jen plna předsudků. Blog je věnován poruchám příjmu potravy a hlavně boji s těmito nemocemi. Nehodlám se řadit k thinspo nebo podobným komunitám. Na blogu najdeš i trochu z cesty mým životem, každodením bojem s PPP, ale také spoustu rad a tipů týkajících se kosmetiky, fotek, článků o mně samé, beauty vychytávky, recenze, recepty, které nikde jinde nenajdeš a mnoho dalšího. Kdyby tě blog zaujal, budu moc ráda, když zanecháš komentář nebo se můžeš stát dalším z mých ctěných "followers". Budu se moc těšit na tvou návštěvu a přeji krásný zbytek dne. Andie :)*

  49. I have to agree that compared to the original Body fragrance, Tender is definitely the lighter and should I say, more wearable one. It was just recently unveiled in the Philippines and I am so very happy with it! http://www.lovingsunshine.com/2013/03/burberry-body-tender.html

  51. This pendant solitaire necklace features a blue sapphire crystal.The Heart to Heart Necklace is outlined within the For Anniversary group. This can be a strings style necklace with Colorado Topaz heart shaped crystals. The largest crystal inside the earrings online necklace is 14mm.Buyers will probably be able to select crystal necklaces in many different colours and styles once they store at GetSparkling.
