    Default Dunhill for Men (1934) RIP Death Confirmed

    Went to the Dunhill store on 5th Avenue today to relieve my mind that the rumors were not true about Dunhill for Men. Was told that Dunhill for Men (1934) the original was no longer. Dead. Gone. Not available. I expressed my shock and dismay. They tried to sell me Dunhill Edition, I said no, too upset. Will look for it somewhere where I know it can still be found. Requiscat in pace, Dunhill dead at 73. Of happy memory.

    I'm guessing that like with most re-formulated frags, the new Dunhill for men is a distant reminder of the original.

    Have you tried the new formula?

    They induced me to try a new formulation, which is the brown bottle (shown in an advert in yesterday's NYTimes) I smiled and said "no thanks", it smelled like antisceptically altered toilet bowl.

    also check the Yahoo feedback on the store. It was 4 and a half smileys out of 5 last time I looked based on nearly 3070 votes.
    there's one thread with 25 votes and this is a store that carries a lot of discontinued stuff.

    Is that the one at the Stonestown Galleria? Have you been to Fragranza at the new Westfield Center (next door to the downtown Nordstrom)? I think it's the same folks that own it. I got my Dunhill for Men '34 at the new place.

    Very sad, indeed! Even though it's not in my top ten I appreciate it as one of the milestones in truly masculine perfumery!
    I still have 95% of a full bottle, and that should last me forever. The quality is so superb that a little is all I need for an evening.

    I was given some of this as a gift. I have tried hard, but really don't understand the appeal. Unless there was something wrong with the bottle, I get a whole lot of fairly closely spaced mid notes (I find them very hard to tell apart - maybe that's good blending) and some top notes that get up my nose. I don't get many bass notes, or nothing that I really like. Very much an older man's cologne, with nothing distinctive - to my untrained nose, anyway.

    It's safe to a fault, although not in a modern way. The bottle is now 3/4 empty, so believe me when I say have tried hard to "get" it!

    Just an update to the Dunhill (1934) story: I was in Dunhill on Fifth Avenue the other day, and they had the Classic for Men in stock. They are in the beautiful swirled clear bottles and it is fresh juice of the classic scent. Gorgeous, monumental, awe inspiring, everything good that has been said about it is true, and if you can get yourself into Manhattan you can still get it. I bought a couple, and will give a couple of Christmas. When the 1,000 bottle shipment is gone, they tell me, there will be no more. Discontinued but still available in very limited quantity right from the manufacturer, so no questionable sourcing, for a limited time $70 with tax. Now you know.

    Could you check your Dunhill box and see where the scent was manufactured? The last one I purchased was made in Germany, which is not where the first bottle I purchased was made (England, if memory serves). Thanks.

    Excellent. Thank you. I want to ask about the bottle you picked up recently. Is the fragrance as good you remember it of old? I ask because the last two bottles I bought were/are, compared to my first bottle, rubbish. The opening was too alcoholy and it sort of forced its way up one's nose, and it faded away from there. No floral heart, no wood-leather base. Either the batch is off, or I bought a couple of frauds. Thanks.

    I have smelled the rubbish as well, and thought that that was all we were going to get from now on, but the liquid being sold at the flagship store is wonderful, fantastic, awesome, fresh, and worth every scent, oops, cent. This is the last of the real stuff. N.B.

    My bottle and box look exactly as they are pictured in the Directory.

    http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120479.html

    The box is buried somewhere in Box Mountain and is not easily accessible.

    The back of the bottle reads:

    EAU DE COLOGNE
    vaporisateur - natural spray
    100 ml 3.4 fl.oz. (with a large lower case "e", that I can't reproduce, between the two figures)

    The bottom of the bottle reads:

    100 ml
    3.4 fl.oz.
    603201 (there is a small graphic symbol to the left of this which looks sort of like a squat jar with an angled-partially removed lid - graphic has the notation: 36 M)
    Eau de Cologne
    SCANNON GmbH
    D 50819 Cologne
    Made in Germany

    The cap is black plastic with an integrated non-functional 'latch' that is embossed: ALFRED DUNHILL.

    I hope this helps identify your bottle (or mine, for that matter )

    Don't worry fredricktoo, mine has a sticker that says something in what I guess to be Chinese or Korean, all I can make out is " 100ml. "

    The bottle itself says Alfred Dunhill/ London SW1Y 6DL

    I can't remember where I bought it. It's only half used due to my being a blue jeans kind of guy-- and burning hot weather for most of the year here in S. CA. If I lived in cooler climates and rejoiced in suits and ties; this would easily be my #1 choice.

    One of the greatest frags of all time.

    my bottle does not refer to Scannon as my Dunhill Edition bottle does. It also doesn't have the "chewing tobacco" looking symbol on the bottom either. The serial # is 9001 on that sticker on the bottom of the bottle which can barely be seen with the naked eye. The back of the bottle opposite the Dunhill logo says Alfred Dunhill, London SW 1Y 6DL as does Mario's.

    I agree that this one of the true greats and I still believe that perfumebay is selling the real deal also and 5th Ave is giving people the ole NYC shuffle.

    Now Scannon being on the "1934 Dunhill Cologne style" bottle suggests that they may be re-introducing the product. I swear these people read basenotes.

    this would be the flagship website for Dunhill in England

    http://www.dunhill.com/en

    notice that when you go to the fragrance page it doesnt say Dunhill, it says Proctor & Gamble, bottom left.

    found on the web

    Dunhill Fragrances

    All fragrances sold under the Dunhill brand name are manufactured and marketed through a licensing agreement by Procter and Gamble Prestige Products division. P&G gained the license as part of their 1995 acquisition of the Wella Corporation.

    I have ordered several "testers' or unboxed Dunhill for Men 3.4 oz EDT's from amazon@$39.00 ea. Standard strength eau de toilette. I would buy a few since it seems that Dunhill has dropped the hammer on making this excellent scent. It's old enough that many folks think it's a new fragrance. The only person who knew what I was wearing was my 98 year old grandmother. I consider the fragrance to be a basic, no frills mans cologne. Suitable for office or casual wear.

    If you get a bad bottle of Dunhill Cologne, EDT or any scented product I'd check with Proctor & Gamble first.
    Dunhill sold the fragrance business a while ago and it seems to have been resold to P&G.
    I'm really curious what P&G makes of the cologne for sale at the Dunhill 5th Avenue store.
    My experience in NYC is that you can't get a job dealing with the public unless you're a master at blowing smoke up peoples asses.

    this isn't the '34 original. i think i read somewhere (here on basenotes, in fact) that 'london' was produced a few years after the original, long before 'blend 30', and that it might be slightly better than the original. i would very much like to test it.

    Ok, this is the old original 1934 Dunhill EDC:

    This is what I thought some of you referred to as 'the new rubbish":

    Now, what is this - the bottle & juice look the same, the box is slightly different, has anyone tried it?:

    Can someone clarify pls? Is THIS the 'new rubbish'?

    The box could be the same orange box, but under a less intensive flash/studio light. The 3 bottles I have came in orange and black boxes, it is the original stuff. The Dunhill 'for Man' stuff in the new bottle is a crappy reformulation of the original with much more lemon and less carnation.....

    Back in the 80's I would buy Dunhill for Men and it would come in the fluted/twisted glass EDC, but the glass was frosted. I still have 1/4 of an old bottle and it is the same as the stuff that comes in the orange/black box. Hope this helps....

    Thanks. However, I wasn't referring to the color of the box, indeed the color can slightly differ in various light conditions. It's the 'Dunhill for Men' lettering/design on the box which is different - white letters against orange background on the original vs the black & white letters on the ???.. It's the first time I've seen Dunhill for Men EDC with this box. Perhaps it's been re-introduced?

    Also, it is suspiciously cheap, $25.

    Well, I re-read your post, so the black/orange box should be the original 1934 Dunhill as well, it's clear now. Thanks.

    As always, check out a seller's feedback before purchasing anything. My general rule of thumb is not to purchase anything from a seller with less than a 99.4% rating. There are always exceptions, but your level of risk increases exponentially.

    Just placed my order at Parfums1 for $32/100ml. Buying it blind based on all the praise here. It better be good! Also, picked up Dunhill Edition.

    Cool Re: Dunhill for Men (1934) RIP Death Confirmed

    A resurrection in sight?

    A couple of days ago I spoke with a certain Alexander, mgr of Alfred Dunhill's 5th ave store at
    (212) 753-9292

    He informed me they have about 40 bottles left, that one customer bought 800, and that Procter and Gamble is not going to let this classic die out, as "it would be criminal" .


    In fact, he told me they have a contract with them.
    Presumably they'll make another batch after the "last 1,000" are gone.

    Nevertheless, he said I should buy mine now--think of the horror that would ensue if I decided to order it around wintertime and they are all out by then.

    quick poll:

    A. Alex is telling the truth, and P&G will issue a new batch, presumably not reformulated, though possibly in a limited editon.

    B. As fredericktoo observed, like most people in NYC who make a living by dealing with the public, Alex is blowing smoke up my ass.

    The answer is A. I've been into the store, met Alex and saw the stuff with my own eyes (I actually bought a backup bottle of Edition as I own 4 bottles of DFM, one of which my wife bought me from that store several months previous). The DFM is the same as my backup bottles.

    The second part of his statement, regarding P&G contracting to make it in small batches of 1000 at a time, I cannot vouch for, but I have an insurance policy against that anyway!

    My answer is B. Making a lot of 1000 for P&G would be too expensive for such a mega-corportation. There is just not that many people who still wear the original fragrance, with the exception of fellow basenoters. Look for those 800 bottle to appear on Ebay soon - at a 300% mark up. Dunhill for Men 1934 is my signature scent.

Requiscat in pace, Dunhill dead at 73. Of happy memory.

    A sad day, 1934 was one of my and my dad's favorites. Edition? is that still available? A great scent, pehaps to my liking, better than "34".

    As I understand it, the person who bought 800 doesn't exactly need the money, the profit would be small change.

    Edition is becoming much much harder to find & I have noticed its becoming pricier , in the upper price range of the designer frags .
    btw ... In the 9 months I have known the 1934 For Men "Fluted Bottle"
    I wholeheartedly agree with you richard d .
    Edition in my opinion is better .

    I bought Dunhill for Men over the phone from Dunhill NYC last year spring 2010. It was $75 plus $20 shipping. It came in a brownish orange box with horizontal stripes. I tried it once and liked it but I'm not liking this stuff. It is way too sour. It gets better after the drydown but still too sour. Maybe that is the way it is supposed to smell. It does smell very old fashioned. I've thought about selling it but know I would regret it later on because the reviews are so favorable. I wonder what stuff I bought if they sold out 3 years ago.

    Has anybody bought the ones on Amazon, can you confirm it's the original juice and link?

    Glad I obtained a bottle of this when the price was much, much lower than now.

    RIP indeed! This fragrance will sorely be missed by me- I only got to test it, not knowing or not wanting to know that it will eventually be discontinued

    Hmm... I just bought a new bottle of this from Ebay a couple months ago at a very low price. Looks like it is readily available at various online discounters as well. Are we sure it has been discontinued?

    It is not. This is an old thread and it has been rereleased since ( ditto for Dunhill Edition).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.
