Burberry Brit Red

Brit Red gets raves when I wear it, and I think I might have to get a bottle of this limited edition before it's gone forever . It's a bit hypersweet and patchouli-heavy for me for most days, but the counterpoint between sharp, tart fruits and caramelly sweetness with spices feels like it would be just right on a warm fall evening during Indian summer. As it turns out, it's been hot in NY (86F today)--not quite autumnal just yet. If you like a good, peppy mix of Fruity Floral and Gourmand, I think Brit Red is among the best of the genre.
