The Best Dunhill Release By Far...
Blend 30 opens with a very herbal slightly green rosemary and clary sage duo with floral carnation and slightly sweet citric lemon support. Almost immediately one can detect the large dollop of oakmoss rising all the way from the base quite early, mixing with the green herbs as the scent enters its heart phase. The herbal green mossy accord now couples with a light spice resembling cinnamon as a subtle woody cedar emerges underpinned by mentholated aromatic lavender. During the dry-down the scent turns a bit sweeter as sandalwood and almost tobacco-like labdanum joins the green herbs to finish off the scent's development. Projection is average and longevity is just shy of average at about 6 hours.

Blend 30 has a small but extremely strong following; primarily from folks that enjoy vintage fragrances from the 70s and 80s. You can now add one more ardent supporter of Blend 30 to the list for sure. It has been mentioned elsewhere Blend 30 has a glancing resemblance to the great Patou pour Homme, and while to some that comparison would be utter sacrilege, I believe it is both sound and fair. Blend 30 is definitely greener, rough, sweet and aromatic than the more famous scent it somewhat resembles, but it really is not inferior to my nose. The notes in Blend 30 really are mixed quite well so I am sure I missed a lot of them, but all I can say is Blend 30 is the kind of scent where you just want to stop trying to pinpoint all the individual notes and just enjoy the discontinued symphonic composition. All this is done as you ponder why a great scent like Blend 30 was ever ended by Dunhill... and how are you going to come up with the $200+ a bottle cost it now commands on the after-market to acquire this extremely rare 4.5 out of 5 star gem.
