Dunhill was established in 1893, born from an opportunity to create automobile products for a niche market – the first of its kind.
Alfred Dunhill created the company, branching off from his involvement with his father’s leather-goods manufacturing company, which at the time was creating saddles, to a company that provided luxury items for the emerging and thriving automobile industry.
Creating smart accessories and sleek tailoring for the modern man, cigars were introduced and later, cigarettes were created.
Soon after a range of colognes were developed, with the first being the original Dunhill for Men in 1934.
Today the company has thirty-three colognes, with just one for ladies: Dunhill Desire.
