Dunhill will launch a new men's perfume called Icon from January 2015 which is announced as heralding a new era for the brand...

The new composition is signed by master perfumer Carlos Benaim of IFF who worked in collaboration with Dunhill artistic director John Ray who has been part of the house since 2012.

The scent story invites you to imagine a well-travelled, sophisticated man who has brought back from his travels a bouquet of ingredients expressing his cosmopolitanism and worldly experience. That character is incarnated by model and actor Andrew Cooper.

The fragrance itself is said to be exotic, distinctive, elegant and daring - only good things, sounding very polished.

The aromatic woodsy composition opens on top notes of neroli absolute, Italian bergamot, black pepper and petit grain leading to a heart of lavender from Provence - see how lavender is being taxed currently - cardamom absolute, sage and juniper berries. The base features "exclusive" iris and leather accords, vetiver, smoky oud wood and oakmoss.

The metallic flacon designed by Mark Eisen is decorated with a guillochage technique which has been favored by Dunhill since 1924.

The ad campaign was shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The eau de toilette will launch from January 2015.
