HISTORY

Dunhill is a globally recognized luxury brand that was established by a twenty-one-year-old Mr. Alfred Dunhill in 1893 after he inherited his father’s saddler business. The first collection of accessories developed by Dunhill was called “Dunhill’s Motorities” and included leather overcoats, goggles, lamps, car horns, and much more. 

Within a few years, the business was refocused towards the luxury market and later on the brand became also known for motoring attire. By the late seventies, the company has expanded its product line to include over three thousands of luxury goods in more than 20 stores around the world. In the nineties, Dunhill’s store on Jermyn Street was renovated to become a private club with a barber’s shop and marble-floored humidor.

Always ahead of the game, Dunhill launched the unique ”Windshield Pipe” in the beginning of the twentieth century. That was the first pipe that allowed drivers to smoke on-the-go. Soon, Dunhill pipes became known as a symbol of quality. The Dunhill name is also strongly associated with a fine collection of fragrances. 

The brand’s first fragrance – “Dunhill For Men” – dates back to the mid-thirties. Since then, the company has expanded its male fragrance portfolio that exudes luxury and sophistication. Today the company owns and operates a leather workshop in London and is currently owned by Richemont Holdings Limited.
