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.
