About Desire for a Man

The first Dunhill fragrance since the license was acquired by Wella. The bottle is shaped like a hip flask with a strikingly bright red liquid. A very disitinct fragrance.

Reviews of Desire for a Man

Im really impressed with the Alfred Dunhill house for their fragrances, Fresh is a favourite of mine but Desire just pips it to the post. I will always have a bottle of this in my collection. Now I say this in a very endearing way, the fragrance reminds me of a talc/baby shampoo product which I cant pinpoint and this is a thought that is evoked in my mind every time I smell this stuff. Desire is extremely pleasant and versatile. 8/10

Unique scent. I wouldn't wear this to the office but it's definitely a 'date night' choice.

Long lasting with excellent sillage.

Maybe a little too sweet & fresh for me. I will share a little secret with you......I wear this for the ladies not for me. They love the freshness & sweetness. It will rarely fail to get noticed by the fairer sex. Overall not really my cup of tea!!

Bermuda Cruise 2000....

A wonderful fragrance that I obtained onboard a cruise ship while sailing to Bermuda with my family. The packaging was novel at the time and made for easy and quick application.

Fresh apple and lime notes dominate the opening and rose/patchouli/vanilla/musk notes work in unison for a truly memorable dry down. Longevity and projection are outstanding at nearly 8-10 hours.

I've probably purchased about ten bottles of Dunhill Desire since that 2000 cruise and I have not noticed any discrepancies in quality. It's a very well crafted fragrance and considering the affordable price; it's pretty much a no brainer addition to your scent wardrobe if you want something fun but classy. A word of caution is to go easy on application, since this can be a monster if overapplied....

This is one of the most underrated male fragrances. i so much love the smell of the Apple with the base notes of vanilla and musk.

Hello!! An all time favorite of mine. Not for everyone, IMO: Very heavy apple and bergamot vibe, with an even drydown that lasts all day for me. Quite easy to find, worth a try if you like tastefully fruity scents.
