Burberry Weekend is a men’s citrus cologne with fresh, green, woody, and sweet main accords. Perfumer Michel Almairac created this scent in 1997 for spring and summer day wear. It has moderate sillage and longevity.
The fruity top notes start with lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, pineapple, mandarin orange, and melon. The middle notes of sandalwood, oakmoss, and ivy lead to base notes of amber, honey, and musk.
Burberry was founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856. This British fashion and accessories house is known for its tartan pattern and its iconic trench coat, which was worn by British soldiers during World War I. Initially, the business focused on outerwear, creating a fabric called gabardine, which is waterproof and breathable. The first store opened in London in 1891, and today, there are stores in Europe, Asia, the Americas, Australia, South Africa, and Egypt. The first fragrance was launched in 1981, and the company produces and distributes its own scents and cosmetics.
