The Ab­so­lute Gen­tle­man

DA MAN - - Scents -

Putting the “gen­tle” into “gen­tle­man,” Dun­hill Lon­don brings mas­cu­line el­e­gance to new heights in its Ab­so­lute Icon fra­grance. Crafted by Car­los Be­naïm, the scent is ac­com­pa­nied by a cam­paign fea­tur­ing model An­drew Cooper dressed in a sim­ple yet sophisticated white shirt and black tie, vi­su­al­iz­ing the idea be­hind the scent: A modern and lux­u­ri­ous gen­tle­man. The main notes con­sist of things that char­ac­ter­ize a gen­tle­man, be­gin­ning with black pep­per mixed with berg­amot for an en­tic­ing open­ing of warmth and spice. It is fol­lowed with a sharp saf­fron smell meshed with black rose and jas­mine, cre­at­ing a dark and deeply sweet scent. All of this is pol­ished off with nu­ances of Tus­can leather, to­bacco leaves and, most unique of all, Oud, which makes the scent an­i­mal­is­tic and slightly bal­samic. The bit­ter­sweet smoky scent of the fra­grance adds a layer of mys­tery, the kind that Al Pa­cino would wear in his role as Michael Cor­leone in “The God­fa­ther.”
