[Event]: Mr Burberry

When I got the invite for the launch event of Mr. Burberry, I some how assumed (wished) that Mr. Burberry would be there. Or perhaps I would get to take him home because you know, bloggers always get giveaways. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Nonetheless, I was not too disappointed. Our very own local as-good-as Mr.Burberry men were in attendance - Aamir Bukhari and Umair Mirza, surrounded by a bevy of beauties - Nida Moughal, Sidra Rizvi, Rabiyah Tungekar, Salima Feerasta and of course Sundus Rasheed at the Dolmen Mall Clifton outlet of Scenstsation.

The brand team tried to keep the event interesting with a scavenger hunt around the Scentsation store with a Samsung Tab as booty! Gahhhh!!! The minute someone says competition, I know I have already lost. Nonetheless, I did run around the store looking for London/Burberry themed bits and pieces, only to lose to Nida Moughal. Oh well, there will be more days for me to lose.

Taking him home

It was a small event with a lot of punch - with the unrealistically hot Mantaha Maqsood as the spokesperson. The perfume itself is something I would wear because gendered products are so last decade. And also because why would a woman not want to associate with someone called Mr. Burberry. The warm woody tones of Mr.Burberry are better than the predictable sweet florals of women's perfumes.

What really stood out for me (apart from the awesome goody bag and the hi-tea at Hakka Chine) was the hospitality of the Scentsation team. They were courteous, respectful and genuinely pleased to have us there. But I do still wish Mr Burberry was in attendance. Hopefully, the next event involves David Beckham.
