How perfume became a part of the Burberry line
The story of how perfume became a part of the Burberry line is an interesting one.
When he started his company, Thomas Burberry was young, well-educated but without much capital.
He decided to make use of what he did have, talent and, by using fragrance as a calling card that would catch the attention of the right people.
A brief biography of the founder of Burberry
The founder, Thomas Burberry, was a visionary who saw a need for protective clothing for hunters and sportsmen.
He worked hard to perfect the design of his first trench coat for this purpose. Through his hard work and dedication to his vision, he became one of Britain’s leading fashion designers.
Burberry fragrances are inspired by the history of the Burberry brand, but they are also tailored towards modern sensibilities.
Their fragrances are also made with natural ingredients to make them healthier for you.
The story of the launch of the Burberry line, which includes Brit, London, Brit for Men, Brit Sheer and Burberry Touch for Men is very interesting. Thomas Burberry came up with the idea that he could provide people with an alternative to heavy perfumes.
Thomas had found out that lavender is very comfortable to wear so he decided to base his new fragrance on this scent.
Thomas Burberry made it his mission to evolve the way people thought about perfume. Women had traditionally been given heavy perfumes, not Burberry’s light, floral creations.
In the early 20th century, Burberry reinvented the way women experienced perfume. Instead of overpowering scents, Burberry Fragrances crafted light flowery fragrances with a focus on elegance and sophistication.
From the 100% natural ingredients used in each fragrance to the luxurious packaging, every detail of Burberry Fragrances is one of beauty.
For over a century, the Burberry name has stood for luxury and class. Their fragrances bring you closer to the spirit of British heritage and culture.
Protecting the best of British heritage and culture, Burberry fragrances will leave you feeling rejuvenated and inspired.
Burberry fragrances are designed to capture the essence of classic British style. Each fragrance is inspired by the magic of London, New York, and Paris; places that embody Burberry’s heritage.
Thomas Burberry was the ultimate renaissance man. A businessman, he started his own company at age 22, was awarded a knighthood at 34, and by the time he was 50, had built one of the most recognisable brands in history.
During his time Thomas Burberry was not only recognised for his iconic trench coat but the brand’s unique and recognisable tartan pattern was one of the most copied motifs in fashion.
Burberry was granted a Royal Warrant for Clothing from the British Royal Family and the first perfume entitled Burberry for Men was adorned with the company’s signature tartan and was launched in 1981. Other well-known early scents include Weekend and Touch in 2000. Burberry Brit was introduced in 2003, was a huge success, followed by Brit Red, Brit Gold, Brit for Men and Brit Anniversary Edition.
