Reviews of Dunhill Icon Elite

An honest to goodness scent from Dunhill, Icon Elite comes across as a green fragrance, with the vetiver, cardamom, and pepper being quite noticeable, with a tasteful touch of smooth woods in the foundation.

Works in cooler weather and in casual occasions.

I am in the camp that enjoys this.

Yes it is synthetic, but that is the norm today. So I evaluate based on the total concept as presented.

The jus matches the bottle very well: deep, dark, metallic, a bit of shimmer here and there.
There is a dry, chalky vibe upon first sniff, and you can smell the entire composition all at once.

The ebony wood stands out to me, presenting an oud accord.
On the forums someone had mentioned Cool Water...blame the bergamot/lime/cardamom in the opening, but it is NOT Cool Water.

What you get is a true flanker: a darker or 'black' version of the original. And that is a boon IMO. I do like the Absolute in the gold bottle the best so far, having yet to try the Racing flanker.

Me likey.

An interesting hybrid in vein of CK Man and Emporio Armani He. Fresh, potent, sharp and "specific", however far from unique.

Synthetic, but not a mess. It is a well done fragrance, considering how it is. Memorable? Not really. Good? Yes.

Icon Elite is relatively boring derivative of the original Icon citrus and wood combination that adds a somewhat leafy sage and vetiver to the faux woods base. It makes the fragrance seem slightly deeper and less screechy but doesn't really take it in any interesting direction. It's peppery and leafy and reminiscent of a Yankee candle. Nothing worth more than a curiosity sniff for me.

If you've been looking for a take on Perry Ellis 360 Black, Bijan Black for Men, or Perhaps, by a farther stretch, the first Penguin release, Icon Elite might be for you. While the suede accord and fake sandalwood bring its composition dangerously close to the brink of vanilla which ruins the former three for me, the threat is just narrowly reined in (but never quite goes away). The quality of ingredients and the body and motion of this would have me guessing that it was a Nest release were I to blind-test it. Nothing I'm clamoring to acquire but it's a neat redirect from the usual citrus and wood, and is far more pleasant to me than the original Icon. Still smells like Dunhill are trying to copy Zegna, though.

I enjoy this more than the original Icon because it doesn't have the screaming Lemonheads note at the beginning and goes straight into the refined cardamom/vetiver combo. Resembles certain stages of Dior Homme and Bvlgari Man Extreme, so try this one if you like either of those two. Decent projection and has a very pleasant, work-friendly drydown.
