    Default New Signature Collection from Alfred Dunhill

    I don't know how anyone else feels but all four sound a bit dull and unoriginal to me.

    I won't be rushing to Harrods to test, that's for sure.

    I thought this was announced a while back?

    I think Benaim has done some interesting work with Dunhill to date (Dunhill Icon is a very clever creation, and Dunhill Century--while not at all to my taste--was at least very unique), so I am intrigued by Indian Sandalwood. The rest of 'em, though... eh.

    Still looking forward to at least trying them.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    They sort of sound like what you'd get in a discovery set or a vanity set from a house, as an introduction to the brand.
    "The sandalwood one, the leather one, the oud one, etc.."

    This shouldn't be a prestige tier line, but more like their standard fare, in maybe 30ml bottles all sold in a single box for a lump sum, with available refills. Then I'd get behind the idea.
    oh look, I have a signature

    +1 They sort of have the feeling of being redundant.

    Another bunch of ‘also rans’ at the masstige horse race. Still, as a leather fan I’m curious to see how British Leather is executed.

    Not the most inspiring lineup, yet I would like to sample the sandalwood.
    Curious how they define "signature" - is it truly different ingredients, or simply a marketing term.

    I will take them all sight unseen. Maybe they are the grandchildren of Blend 30.
    Who knows?

    Bad choice. I tested the 4 of them, and British Leather as well as Moroccan Amber are hits imo.

    I wouldn;t pay retail for these, but when they'll hit discounters, I'll definitely get British Leather and Moroccan Amber. At the opposite, Desert Oud was a little disappointing, and Indian Sandalwood is a fail imo (screams synthetic)

    For some reason you reminded me of the Queensryche song "Screaming in Digital" off of Rage for Order (1985)
