Burberry, that quintessential British luxury brand, dipped its toe into the rugged terrain of masculine elegance with the Burberry Hero fragrance collection.

Since its 2021 debut, the Burberry Hero range, crafted by perfumer Aurelien Guichard, has captured the imagination of many with its unapologetically bold yet nuanced scents. 

As a Londoner myself, I feel Burberry has managed to fuse the old and the new, tying Burberry’s dapper London gent image with these modern and well-grounded woody compositions.

Burberry Hero EDP steps up the depth and warmth, offering a more intense and enveloping Hero experience. 

Fresh pine gives way to a warming, resinous heart with a nice touch of smoke. Dry-down reveals plenty of mature woody aromas that are sure to get compliments.

I find this EDP version is best suited for the chillier seasons. It pairs exceptionally well with knitwear and evening settings. 

This one’s a powerhouse, lasting well through the night and projecting a confident aura around its wearer.

Longevity 7+ hours

Review

For those who crave the richest Hero experience, Hero Parfum is a smouldering masterpiece. Reminds me of an oud fragrance.

It’s dense right from the start, with a smoky cyproil and slightly fruity Amyris sitting on a decadent woody base showcasing a trio of cedar notes: Altas, Virginian, and Himalayan.

Top Notes:

Cypriol

Mid Notes:

Amyris

Base Notes:

Atlas Cedar, Virginian Cedar, Himalayan Cedar

Seasons & Longevity

This Parfum version thrives in autumn and winter for evening occasions when you want to make a lasting impression. 

With superb longevity and bold projection, it makes sure you’re not forgotten anytime soon.

Burberry Hero Eau de Parfum

My top pick? I must say I’m loving the Burberry Hero Eau de Parfum version. It’s rich, smooth and woody but with a nice touch of resinous warmth.

Conclusion

If you crave a masculine, woody scent, then the Burberry Hero collection is certainly worth investigating.

The EDT is playful and fresh, the EDP is a cosy embrace, and the Parfum is a commanding masculine statement. Each has a distinctive edge while staying true to the line’s DNA of woody sophistication.

Price vs performance is decent. Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette is around £99 / $120 for 100 ml; the EDT is £114 / $140 for 100 ml; and the Parfum £137 / $170 for 100 ml.
