    The men’s sounds more interesting than the womens.

  2. AmyT says:

    I wish they would bring back Burberry Brit Gold.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      Me, too! I should have snatched up a bottle of it when I had the chance.

      • debbie says:

        I adore Brit Gold and am wearing it today. Sometimes Fragrancenet have it for sale. I check nearly ever day and, when they have it, I always order a bottle!

    • Robin says:

      That one was probably the best. Red was good too though.

    • vmm says:

      Brit Gold is a wonderful fragrance. Can’t describe it, but i’ve always found it magnificent. Also reminds me a little bit of Dior Addict, only Brit Gold’s top notes are a bit more citrus-y. Interestingly, Brit Gold seems to be available in Asia.

  3. Daisy says:

    The men’s does sound nice….but isn’t British winter kind of cold, wet and gloomy?? Not that Michigan winters are sunny and balmy or anything….

    • Robin says:

      Yeah, doesn’t sound like much of an inspiration, does it?

      • 50_Roses says:

        I think when it is used that way–“winter season”–it refers to the winter social season.

    • CynthiaW says:

      Maybe it’s more of an inspiration of holiday scents? I thought that was what Brit Red was though – I do love Brit Red, so I’ll probably give this a sniff or two if I see it.

  4. Joe says:

    Am I reading correctly that the fragrances are new as well, not just LE bottles?

    I’d be curious to smell how they twist the original Brit for Men, which I already own. I loved it for awhile, but find it super-powdery and sometimes difficult to wear now.

  5. Dusan says:

    I’m with Joe on the Brit for Men so looking forward to seeing if the pine needles will amp down the sweetness/powder.

  6. maggiecat says:

    I thought the one for men sounded more interesting as well! I’ve had no luck with this brand, which smells just fine on other people but not on me, as a rule.

  7. eminere says:

    Very sleek looking bottles!

  8. smartylicious says:

    Robin, please pretty please, could you review this one? The women’s version sounds like something that would be nice for winter and I just found out it won’t be available in my country :( I’m thinking about ordering it online from abroad.

    • Robin says:

      I have not even tried it yet! Will see if I can get a sample next time I get to the mall.

      • smartylicious says:

        Great, thanks ! From what I heard, it’s already in stores.

  9. Sephora lists the notes in the limited edition as being the exact same as the ones in the original Brit: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P276316&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=1179

    What am I missing here? :/ Is this (the link above) the right one? Confused…
