Burberry Brit for men was launched in 2004. Brit for men embodies the spirit of the Burberry brand and has a fresh, woody scent. The fragrance reflects the elegant, free spirited persona of the Burberry man and is suitable for day and evening wear. The bottle is a square flacon which is embossed in the Burberry checked pattern. Burberry is a luxury British design house founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856. This house distinguished itself with fashion and accessories, including a now-iconic trench coat and the brand's unique and recognisable tartan pattern which has become one of the most copied motifs in fashion. Burberry was granted a Royal Warrant for Clothing from the British Royal Family. In addition to their fashion line and accessories, the Burberry brand offers an exclusive line of fragrances for men and women--many in bottles adorned with the company's signature tartan--their first fragrance was launched in 1990 and they have over 35 perfumes to date.
