Combining chivalry with audacity and strength with subtly, a modern gentleman values tradition while giving it a new twist.
These facets are reflected in Black, dunhill's distinctive new fragrance for men.
As the name suggests, it's deliciously distinguished – the aromatic accessory to a seductively exciting night out. What's more, it's deeply masculine but not in an obvious way.
The top note is one of the most unexpected to be used in fragrance today - a Green Nettle accord. This blends with a base accord of suede. Leather would have been too obvious. Suede is softer, skin-friendly and immensely sensual.
The combination of the two accords is a fascinating fusion, tied together with heart notes of transparent jasmine that creates a hidden softness and lavender that gives the fragrance an aromatic lift.
All the ingredients used are the finest raw materials and the result is powerfully provocative.
It's also stylishly packaged. The box is black, of course, embodying the rich, warm, sexiness of the fragrant cocktail, but with beams of light crossing the darkness.
The bottle is a glass flacon with substance, masculine square shoulders and slick, clean lines. In addition, the base features an intriguing design detail – dramatic cut-ins that allows the bottle to reveal strikingly different shapes when viewed from various angles.
