Crap was hoping this was gonna be a powerhouse inspired frag esp with the racing motif. Sounds like another generic snoozefest. Like you I love the original. Cheers
I need to get my nose on this new flanker. From the reviews I have seen it appears the females appreciate the smell better then the guys do. Maybe this will be another sauvage generic smelling goodie.
Thanks for the review.. I can’t say I am a big fan of the original icon.. i liked it at first, but the more i wore it the more I felt it smelled like a cheap fragrance.. It really reminded me of one of those swiss army fragrances.. heavy dose of synthetic notes etc. If this smells like le male superman or bleu edp etc.. its a great fragrance to me.. cause usually dunhills are very cheap.. so it would be a good alternative
Really good jokes!!!
Every single human have different pick nose . What perfume is cool to your nose doesn’t mean is going to be cool to my nose lol. I prefer Dunhill icon racing 🙂
The Jeremy fragrance reference LMAO
Icon is okay, but Absolute and Elite are both better fragrances…sadly, performance is shit in that they last 1-2 hours on my skin – tops! I’m looking forward to buying Icon Racing simply for the fact I’ll have to something heavy to throw should Avenus not work to get me laid. LOL!!! Cheers!
Another great review Mr. Smelly. I’ve not tried Dunhill Icon yet so it’s now on my list!
I want to know if you still pull out and spray over smurfy’s back pretending you are a human bottle of Aventus. 🙂
How do you think Icon compares with Aventus? I find them to be similar in some ways.
Appreciate this honest review – dunhill icon is one of my favourites, shocking how under hyped it was/still is
I’m hearing rumors in the community about a new Oriental Yarson Unleashed.
Prada luna rosa carbon or Dun hill icon racing?
great review thank you
I had a BMW Z4 in British racing green. So I was interested in this because the name, bummed to hear that it is meh…
U the best man, Carlos & Jeremy reference was crazy
I liked Dior Sauvage very much, i wear it evryday for my style. I need another one, if i blind buy, I had to pick one with: Dunhill Icon, Dunhill Icon racing and Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extremme?? Thanks Mr Smelly !
Nice review! Thanks! Is the original icon a redundant fragrance if I own terre de Hermes? Been eyeballing it for a while, but I have Hermes.
Thanks for the review Mr. Smelly. Re the Icon EDP, it reminds me some aftershave scent but in a good way. It creates a scent bubble around you. It is a masculine fragrance with a silencer attached to it.
This year has been same as the last for fragrances, just very ordinary releases, including the Creed.
Hopefully Danhill Aikhon hasnt been reformulated (Dunhill Icon).
You’ve overtaken Greggieboy76 in the subscriber stakes. UK’s no.1
Great vid as usual. 🙂
Excellent review… you covered this including all the Icon flankers n’ the original one… Love it.
Thanks for the review MrSmelly. Sucks to hear that it’s nothing special. I own and love the original icon. I just recently bought elite, I love the smell more than the original but the performance sucks and on that note will be looking to sell a 3.4 Oz bottle of Dunhill icon elite for a great price. I’ve used it 3 times with 5 sprays each time. Let me know if anyone is interested.
When the price drops I will probably get this, as I have the other 3 and love the bottles. Thank you for your review I’ve been waiting for someone to get to this.
what a shame about the flankers… Everyone was hoping for a good flanker:-(
After a review like that, I don’t think I am overly keen on giving it a try. If I run in to it when in a fragrance shop, I will probably spray it on, but I won’t go out of my way to look for it.
Damn, when I saw the reviews on fragrantica and the votes comparing it to Creeds Green Valley, I thought it may be something special. Great review, thank you for letting us know !
that intro man…spot on hahaha
You’re on the verge of breaking into the top 3 fragrance reviewers online – it’s good to listen to your thoughts…makes a change from listening to others whinging.
This frags a pass for me though – SOTD Black Afgano.
Very dapper, very humorous and informative! Cool job man!! Disappointing juice though.
Quality mate, will try this out if i see it anywhere, i like me some icon, lasts well on my skin.
That means no blind buy! Really sick of savauge kind if smell stuffs.
I love the bottle though.
Oh wow a great honest no nonsense review, very refreshing good job Mr smelly
The bought subs…can’t stop laughing. You’re the best, Dan-o
I tried this the other day in a suit late on after work time and it worked OK… thanks for explaining the BRG I’m an MGF owner!
