We have the British to thank for go-go boots, miniskirts, and punk plaids, but they’re also associated with stiff-upper-lip style à la corsets and frock coats – and no brand represents those delightful dualities more than Burberry.
When it tapped Cara Delevingne as the face of its ‘Her’ fragrance, the house was subtly acknowledging the contrasts in its image. The supermodel is an expressive, quirky iconoclast who can also turn on dazzling feminine charm at a moment’s notice. She’s fully, confidently herself, and is so refreshingly real that we fall in love with her every time she opens her mouth.
Although Burberry’s flagship ‘Her’ fragrance first debuted in 2018, the house has kept up with steady releases with the addition of the ‘Her Blossom’ scent and a potent new version appropriately called ‘Her Intense’. The ‘Her Intense’ eau du parfum is a distinctly feminine, gourmand-driven scent developed by famed perfumer Francis Kurkdjian that opens with a juicy blackberry top note, flirting with a heart note of jasmine and base notes of dry amber and musk.
This heady combination conjures a thrilling image of Delevingne’s hometown of London, with the marriage of ideas – a tomboy icon, an intangibly contradictory city, and a signature scent – captured beautifully in a new campaign for ‘Her Intense’. Only the legendary Juergen Teller can make the supermodel look smoldering despite the sun on her face and a gritty city as her backdrop.
