Who Would Like It?

Burberry Weekend is an excellent option for the elegant woman who knows how to work hard and play even harder.

If you are someone who appreciates the nuance of different scent notes and isn’t afraid to play with bold notes like musk and peach, this perfume is ideal for you.

Thanks to its base tones, Burberry Weekend perfume is a grown-up scent, so it’s not exactly appropriate as a “first perfume” for younger women.

It’s a very mature, but never stodgy, scent. If you have a slight flair for the dramatic, love unexpected scents, and like darker base tones, pick up a bottle of Burberry Weekend.

Where Should You Wear It?

As the name suggests, Burberry Weekend is a good perfume for your downtime. It’s casual while still maintaining its refined edge.

Wear this perfume to summer garden parties, outdoor galas, museums, and outings.

You can also get away with it during the week, although some of the notes might be a little bit overpowering for the office. If you do decide to make Burberry Weekend your go-to daily perfume, spritz lightly.  

Packaging and Presentation

The Burberry Weekend new bottle is sleek, oval, and has some gorgeous detailing on the bottom.

Although most perfume bottles are meant to be decorative, Burberry Weekend is genuinely in a class all of its own, thanks to the art deco white detailing around the base of the bottle.

A silver cap finishes off the presentation nicely. Although this bottle would indeed look good on your bathroom vanity, it’s almost pretty enough to be a centerpiece in your living room.

Personal Impressions

Our personal Burberry Weekend review is quite positive. We found this scent to be pleasant without being overwhelming, and we really loved the deep sandalwood tones at the end.

Although you wouldn’t want to wear Burberry Weekend for an everyday scent, it makes for an elegant and sweet special occasion perfume.

What we liked about Burberry Weekend was how well it aged throughout the day. We loved how the sweeter, fruiter notes melted into cedar as the hours went on. The interplay of those two notes really makes Burberry Weekend stand out in a highly positive way.
