Reviews of Dunhill Pursuit

Ambery pink pepper over a flat cwdary base. Feels a bit cheap and synthetic (which it is). It has something a little gingery in the heart. It also has just a hint of that la nuit cardamom/lavendar thing snuck in there. So in the under 20 dollar cheapy category im gonna say neutral. Better than a bland clean nothingness. Performance, not good.

Has (or more like wants to have) an oriental, classy vibe but ends up smelling utterly synthetic and bland by any standards.

Starts with a spicy mix of highly synthetic yuzu, mandarin and bergamot. This tangy, metallic soup dries down to a tamer and smoky mix of (synthetic) amber and cinnamon.

If you can bare the cheap-smelling beginning notes, the drydown is the best part of this frag. A warm, sweet and balsamic mix of Cedarwood, vetiver and vanilla. Then again, you've probably smelled much better stuff already.

Sillage is moderate for the first half hour and then turns into a skin scent and longevity is moderate leaning towards poor, somewhere around 1/5 hours on my skin.

Overall? Easy pass. I can't see why anybody would prefer this smell over hundreds of better stuff out there. The bottle looks very classy, though.

LONGEVITY: 1/5 hours
SILLAGE: Moderate

This would be thumbs up if it had better longevity, because no one would say it smells BAD...boring? Ish...but not bad...and only smells for like seconds. Don't "seek" this.

I used to like this but having revisited I realised it has an impressive, syrupy mandarin opening supported by the yuzu and pink pepper, but after 10 minutes it smells spent. Typical bargain bin filler, opens nice, but quickly descends to the hall of shame.

Credit for the bottle though, nice and heavy with an engraved steel cap. Exceptional for this price segment.

Try Montblanc Exceptionnel for a much better version of what Pursuit is trying to be.

really nothing disctincitve about this at all i had to wash it off

as a proud owner of a Dunhill briefcase a did feel a bit of brand loyalty but this just offended my senses. I just seems uninspiring and generic if i can use that term. nothing seems to stand out for me and it just seems like any other inexpensive cologne. After a few hours of wearing it i get a faint whiff of something leathery and almost pleasant but its so faint that i can't see the point. you'd have to douse yourself to levels of this stuff which would have got Joan of arc nervous to get a good silage from this bass note. sorry a no from me.

Pros: no expensive
Cons: no distictive qualities ata ll"

good notes,poor quality. no projection or sillage. basically a skin scent. some say smooth oriental, it could be a whisper oriental. i dont get because cardamon,vanilla and patchouli usually scream out. maybe the scientista should reformulate this one.
