Dunhill Black by Alfred Dunhill, In 2009, Alfred Dunhill released Dunhill Black, a versatile, restrained fragrance that can be worn day into evening, especially in the warmer months. The name is a bit misleading, as this fragrance is more herbal/grassy than “dark.” Nettle is the surprising top note in this unusual blend.
The sharpness of the nettles soon opens onto a core of jasmine and lavender that imparts an herbaceous freshness. Jasmine imparts a lasting touch of sweetness that never overpowers the greener notes. The base notes of dry Guaiac wood and suede give Dunhill Black a warm, mellow finish that softly lingers. For spring into fall, this is a great balance of green florals around an intimate, aromatic core.
Alfred Dunhill is the epitome of British style and elegance, offering everything from clothing to fragrance to the discerning man of today. In 2005, the U.K. brand revamped and updated its lineup, reaffirming the company’s reputation as a fashion leader to be reckoned with.
