Once you realize the liquid inside that handsome cylinder of knurled metal is cologne, your expectations are immediately raised. Fortunately, Dunhill Icon Cologne meets them handily, with a masculine scent worthy of such an elegant vessel. It starts with notes of bergamot, orange blossom, and black pepper, features a heart of Provençal lavender, cardamom, sage, and juniper, and finishes with a base of vetiver, smoky oud wood, oakmoss, and leather, making it ideal for everything from casual dinners to formal events.
"Smell legendary" doesn't sound like a very good fragrance slogan, so it's probably a good thing we weren't consulted on the advertising campaign for Mont Blanc Legend Cologne. It offers notes of lavender, pineapple leaf, verbena, apple, rose, sandalwood, tonka, bergamot, oakmoss, and geranium, imbuing it with a clean, masculine scent. Arrives in a handsome black and chrome bottle that will look right at home in your storied bathroom.
