FOR HIM: Dunhill Icon Racing
FRAGRANCE FAMILY: WOODY
Top notes: bergamot, grapefruit, cardamom
Heart notes: orange blossom, lavender, black pepper
Base notes: guaiac wood, vetiver, musk
From a style-led house such as Dunhill, you’d expect nothing less than class with no compromise – but here, the latest addition to the stunning Icon fragrance range steps it up a gear, adopting a British Racing Green livery for the (appropriately) iconic flacon.
A nod to the heritage of fine gentlemen’s fragrances past can be found in the more traditional notes of citrus, lavender, pepper and musk – but it’s the juicy twist of grapefruit, heavenly waxiness of orange blossom and turbo-charged depth of guaiac wood that set this scent apart.
Dunhill London describe themselves as ‘…design driven with style and purpose for an uncompromising stance on modern luxury.’ Now with over 70 stores in 16 countries, Dunhill’s story began in 1893, when Alfred Dunhill took over his father’s harness manufacturing business in London. Embracing the new found craze for motoring and introducing stylish outerwear for early adopters of this daring hobby, Alfred was an inventor who set about creating products to meet the dashingly adventurous needs of his discerning clients – a tradition that continues apace with Icon Racing.
