Sacry Bad In Its Current Form...
Dunhill opens with a very synthetic smelling faux lemon, lavender and geranium combo before adding in a very generic blend of cedar in the scent's heart, sweetened by base notes of tonka bean, artificial sandalwood and musk. The scent is quite linear in nature with the artificial lemon, lavender, geranium and tonka bean remaining for most of the entire duration. Projection and longevity are both excellent.

Wow, this one is just a complete disappointment. I am one of the few folks that does not mind many of the Dunhill scents, but this one is so completely generic, cheap smelling, mundane and unoriginal that you may as well put a label "Exceptional for Men" on the bottle and call it a day. For those that are not familiar with "Exceptional" I can only recommend that you do *not* seek it out as it is anything but... and likewise for this "me too" release from Dunhill. On the plus side for bottle collectors, I love the container the juice comes in; I just wish the scent was as good smelling as its well-designed housing. Dunhill gets a below average 2 stars out of 5 and an "avoid" recommendation unless you just want the great bottle.

Come to daddy: The fragrance of security
My father used this when I was small and I loved it! I even remember the noise the lid made when twisted. You could let it spin and it made a characteristic noise of vibrating glass and bakelite.
When Dunhill couldn't be found anymore, my father switched to other after shaves that were similarly restrained and at the same time classy and masculine.
For me this fragrance exudes childhood security. My Papa.

A gem of a strong fougére, florals and a very manly trio - vetiver, cedar and leather. Old school, a bit barbershop but never oudated.+3

The current reformulation, although good, is sadly a shadow of its older form.+3
