Founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, Burberry embodies Britannica through and through. The design house is renowned for its trench coat and the tartan pattern that shows up in many of the clothing collections. Burberry's signature: clean, classic, and traditional. The first Burberry perfume introduced to the market was Burberry’s, a perfume for men. Launched in 1981, the fragrance was met with success, thanks to its classic aromas. From then on, Burberry has come to produce a variety of scents for both men and women, most bottled and packaged to bear the famed tartan pattern of the brand.
