I’m Loving… Dunhill Desire Extreme


Each day I awake to find winter has advanced just that little further here on the southern side of the globe. I find my mind contemplating outfits for the day based on traditional winter wear – thicker fabrics and tones that tend to make me feel warmer inside. But we are rather fortunate here in South Africa, with truly mild weather in the cooler months. Hey presto, no need to pack away the summer pieces just yet!


So today I’m playing with caramel. Yip, probably not a shade you would usually consider at this time of the year. And I’m going with a monochromatic approach, throwing all the traditional thinking out the window. Well, just for today.

Monochrome is generally used to highlight an aspect of your outfit, say a really great pair of shoes. I’m not doing that here. Or a standout watch. I’m not doing that here either, although this is one of my favourite watches. Nope. The standout accessory in my outfit is somewhat more subtle but so much more enticing.

I’m using my Dunhill Desire Extreme fragrance as my standout accessory in this monochromatic ensemble. The Dunhill brand has always managed to combine craftsmanship with a modern edge, through their attention to detail. All these traits resonate with my personal sense of style so when Desire Extreme was launched, it was on my list of must-haves.


The existing red bottle, around since 2000, has been accented with new black details. The black dipstick is large and unapologetic, embodying just the fragrance I was looking for as my standout accessory in this outfit. 


Check out my video below to see the history I share with Dunhill Desire and why Desire Extreme was the only choice for this outfit.



Do you agree with my assessment of Dunhill Desire Extreme? Then you definitely don’t want to miss the end of my post, as I’m giving one away to one lucky reader. 


The result? To my mind, a classic outfit with modern tailoring paired with a great accessory to round the look off. With the accessory being my fragrance it makes the overall impression that much more sophisticated as I feel my sense of passion and masculinity reinforced with each pleasant breath.
