Dunhill ICON Racing Review


The Dunhill Icon Racing is the newest addition to the Dunhill London ICON COLLECTION and I couldn’t possibly wear anything else than a leather jacket to celebrate the launch. The new perfume is inspired by the adventure and the thrill of the open road in the British countryside as a man drives in a racing green, open-top sports car. The distinct green color of its package, named British Racing Green, depicts the glorious victories won on the circuits all around the world by daring racing drivers while it’s also associated with the innovative and high-quality machinery produced during Britain’s golden age of engineering. A fragrance of speed, masculinity, and freedom, the Dunhill ICON Racing smells just as masculine as it sounds!

With Top notes such as Bergamot and Grapefruit, the Dunhill Icon Racing starts off with a very fresh and airy scent for the man on the move. The orange blossom and the spiciness of black pepper give a depth to the original smell while they all together contribute to what is a very classic men’s perfume. When the fragrance sets in, the base notes of gaiac wood, vetiver and musk make a more distinct appearance as they deliver warm and masculine tones. A detailed table of the notes can be found above:

Top Notes Top Notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Cardamom
Heart Notes Heart Notes: Orange blossom, Lavender, Black pepper
Base Notes Base Notes: Gaiac wood, Vetiver, Musk

Overall, this perfume is ideal for the guy who is attracted to more “classic” men scents. A rather everyday and sporty fragrance, the Dunhill Racing may not be my usual choice, but it does make me feel like a badass when I have it on. If you are the “leather jacket and denim” kind of guy, then this one is definitely for you as it compliments the whole look amazingly!

The Dunhill London ICON Racing is available in two sizes 50ml (£63.00) and 100ml (£84.00).
