Animalic + powdery = not a great experience.
I do not understand the need to ruin something that has the premise to be a potentially fantastic oud fragrance by adding Iris, oud and leather are animalic by nature, and I don’t mind that, it is rugged and masculine, right up my alley, and there are ways to balance a formulation or sweeten it if it’s too woody or too animalic, vanilla, tonka, rose, flowers and fruits are all common in that regard but not Iris, with the animalic note up front five minutes in the iris and mastic kick in and everything turns metallic, powdery and very bitter to my nose, very repulsive.

The whole experience left me heartbroken because I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn’t.

Smoke and elegantly goodness
I totally agree with the reviewer before; maybe the best sent of the year, if you like a successful bonding between barbershop meets middle eastern fragrance. Why barbershop? It s got the freshness from citrus, ginger, musc and pepper but also this amazing smoke, oud and leather combo, very masculin...the notes, which hold for me everything together and smooths the differences out are the tobacco, violet leafs and the iris, which round all up and give this gentleman feel... The hidden star is the mastic, which I can detect as spending the summers in my childhood in greece. If you want to know what fragragrances it reminds me of it s got definitively vibes from gucci guilty absolute in terms of leather & bentley for men absolute in terms of woodiness and cartiers l enviol (only on the agar wood part) but does totally his own thing, and is stronger, more unique and hasn't any booziness, which i admire in this case. This gives it a lot of elegance. Longevity is excellent and for the price you can get it online it s a must have. Intrigued to test the whole line, definitely high quality and sofisticated
for men above 30 (grab whatever you are comfortable with, but i think this is made for the gusto of older men) Also nice: You don t have a supersweet fragrance but you can pick up a sence of powderyness. Best time to wear: Fall and winter and maybe a little dressed up :-) 9/10

Hands down the BEST release I've smelled this year!


The best Dunhill has EVER released, imho. As complex and as good as the notes suggest. There is a very passable oud-y aspect from the top to bottom, as well as a very present lipstick-y iris.

If I had to approximate this, I would say this embodies all of the elements of what makes Dior Homme Parfum, Tom Ford's Ombre Leather and Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme great and successfully packages it all in one composition.

Clone? No. Inspired? Maybe. See, with this it not only hints at those greats but it goes on to improve them by adding the things people wanted to have seen in those frags respectively. Things like: oud, tobacco ginger, Sichuan pepper, etc... helping to make this it's own thing. Take the label off and this is credibly niche.
Only will the addictive frag head get the references this harkens to. Trust me.

Overall, this is an official sock blower. Please quote me when this blows up.

Well done, Dunhill.

An über oud-y, woody, lipstick-y, powdery, Ombre Leather/Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme... with tobacco. Exactly that. I prefer this.
