Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette Review

Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette

If you love men’s designer fragrances, then I’ve found the perfect scent for you: Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette. The 2021 aroma blends strength and freshness for a perfectly balanced aftershave that signifies the duality of a man’s power and sensuality.

Designer, Riccardo Tisci’s first scent for Burberry, marries classic British ingredients with a trio of warm woods from three distinct mountain ranges: Virginia’s Appalachian, the Atlas Mountains in Africa, and the Himalayas in Asia for a sporty and magnetic woody-scent.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette embodies modern masculinity with a powerful vibrant freshness that’s contrasted with comforting woody nuances. Burberry Hero opens with a fresh and luminous bergamot aroma, that energises the senses from the very first spritz. As the EDT builds it warms into a trio of cedarwood oils for a fresh, softness that’s comforting and familiar. The base of juniper, a classic British fresh scent, blends with spicy black pepper for an aromatic earthiness that’s addictively moreish.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by the iconic Burberry trench coat, music and British icons, Hero takes the designer fashion house’s signatures and reinterups them into a woody scent. Designer Riccardo Tisci and Master Perfumer Aurelien Guichard, created an EDT that embodies the Burberry house codes of duality, contradiction and the animal kingdom to create a high-quality aftershave, for any man in search of transformation in a modern world.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of Burberry’s classic woody signature featured in Burberry Original and the Mr Burberry Eau de Toilette, you’ll love this fragrance’s balance of three cosy woods. Hero has more of a lighter, invigorating freshness than its predecessors, making it the perfect daytime fragrance.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Burberry Hero transports me to a British lumber yard surrounded by freshly cut trees that waft sweet notes of resin. After the dry down, the EDT warms into an aromatic smokiness that reminds me of standing around a campfire on bonfire night.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Hero lasts between two to three hours on the skin, which is typical of an Eau de Toilette.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

An abstract reimagination of Burberry fragrance, the sun-drenched gold liquid is housed within a luxurious glass bottle. Reminiscent of the rich, elegant scent inside Hero features a TB embossed monogram on top of the sleek black cap. Strong and modern, the angular shape adorned with the instantly recognisable Burberry logo, represents the horse’s hoof seen throughout Burberry’s designs.
