This Fragrance Smells Like…
Part of the fan-favourite Icon Racing collection that pays homage to Alfred Dunhill’s motorsport past, Racing Blue Eau de Parfum is a unique, well-contrasted fragrance that perfectly balances woody and aromatic notes.
dunhill Icon Racing Blue opens with an extreme freshness, thanks to sharp citrus fruits and ambergris, which race into a heart of cool spices before being washed away by a wave of marine saltiness. In the final lap, the musky woodiness of patchouli and sandalwood create an addictive tone as they partner with a unique seashore accord to linger sensually on the skin.

An embodiment of the spirit of racing, dunhill’s Eau de Parfum is inspired by the man who likes to have a good time – both on and off the track. Racing Blue encapsulates both the excitement and the sense of therapy that racing has to offer.

What’s Special About The Bottle?
Awarded the Best New Male Design & Packaging Award by the Fragrance Foundation, this bottle really is a first place winner. Motor enthusiasts will adore the weighted glass bottle, which is shaped just like a car piston. A homage to Dunhill’s motoring past, the textured flacon not only offers grip, but it acts as a talisman for the sport of racing. Adorned with a shiny cap that mirrors a car’s gear stick, the dunhill logo takes centre stage as it sits proudly at the top of the sport-themed bottle.
